Nilagang Baboy (Pork Ribs Soup)

This is one of my family’s favorite comfort dishes (next to Sinigang – Pork in Sour Tamarind Broth). I used pork ribs in this one but you can definitely substitute beef ribs or even chicken. Regardless of the type of meat you prefer, the process is the same. Just keep in mind that the essence …

Pork and Potato Omelet (Tortang Giniling)

Pork and Potato Omelet (Tortang Giniling)

Our 2 smaller kids have been doing online (only) classes since the pandemic started. The eldest, who’s in high school, goes every other day and my hubby has been working remotely since March of last year. So most of the time, we are all home. This scenario has its own perks and challenges. Being together …

Crispy Garlic Shrimp

Crispy Garlic Shrimp 4

We only buy shrimps once in a while because aside from me, only my hubby likes it. My kids are not a fan and the littlest one even considers it a bug. Haha! So, whenever we “indulge” in the cholesterol that comes with it (especially when it’s head-on), we go all out! What I mean …

Oven-Baked Homemade Tinapa (Smoked Fish)

Smoked Fish 5

Whenever I think of Tinapa (smoked fish), I’m reminded of 2 Catholic churches in Manila – Our Lady of Loreto (Sampaloc, Manila) and Quiapo Church (Minor Basilica of the Black Nazarene). These are churches that I frequented when I was still living in the Philippines and street vendors selling tinapa lined up outside its walls …

Arroz Ala Cubana (Filipino)

Arroz Ala Cubana 3

Arroz ala Cubana sounds so complicated and elegant but this dish actually has humble beginnings. It definitely is Spanish in origin but some countries have their own variations. The identifying ingredients are rice, egg and plantain. That’s how it’s done in South America. Spain adds tomatoes and tomato sauce on theirs while in the Philippines, …

Almondigas (Meatball Noodle Soup)

Almondigas 1

Almondigas is one of those dishes that reminds me of my parents’ cooking. It’s like a warm hug in a bowl that turns me into a child again. Growing up, I don’t think we ever ran out of misua (very thin wheat noodles) because my dad loves cooking and putting it in a lot of …

Lechon Paksiw

Lechon Paksiw 1 (1)

Last week’s post was one of my family’s fave dishes, the Moist and Crispy Oven-Roasted Pork. It was a huge piece of meat which my family enjoyed eating. But even after we all got our tummy’s fill, there were still a whole lot of leftovers.  Like most Pinoys, Paksiw comes to mind. My hubby actually …

Filipino-Style Chicken Curry

Filipino-Style Chicken Curry 6

My kids and I are not fond of the typical curry because of the “heat” factor and there’s also a whole lot of strong spices involved that we really can’t handle. That’s why this Filipino-style Chicken Curry is perfect for us! Not spicy, only uses curry powder and is very easy to make.  Bone-in chicken …

Pork Dinuguan (Pork Blood Stew)

Pork Dinuguan (Pork Blood Stew) 2

Dinuguan is not for everyone. One can easily be put off by its looks. If you’re not Filipino, you might think (or some Pinoys might trick you) that it’s “Chocolate Meat”. It may seem like it in appearance but once you stick your nose next to it, you’ll know that dinuguan is definitely NOT made …
