Homemade Corned Beef (Filipino)

Food is sustenance; we all need it to live. Though tons of food items can be consumed daily, there are those we call the “sometimes” food and this is one of them. I don’t know about you but once in a while, I crave this kind of stuff. Canned corned beef was almost always on …

Homemade Beef Tapa (Tapsilog)

This is one of my family’s favorite breakfast meals. I always serve it  with garlic-laden fried rice and a slightly crunchy bottom fried egg. A side of sliced tomatoes, spiced vinegar (for dipping) and atchara (pickled green papaya)  make this meal even better. Yummm! “Silog” meals have a very prominent spot in the Filipino breakfast …

Special Pandesal

This is my go-to recipe when my kids ask for Pandesal. I call them “Bread Bandits” because every time I make bread (which is once a week), they always lurk near the kitchen waiting for the freshly baked buns to come out of the oven. I have to place the baking pans on racks to …
