Buko Salad Recipe


Buko Salad is for me, the most delicious of all Pinoy desserts. Plus, it's one of the easiest to make too if you exclude counting the efforts of the men in the house opening the young coconuts or have the buko shredded as you buy them. :) If you attend your friend's birthday party and a buko salad is displayed among a couple of desserts, which would you try first? My answer? Buko Salad, of course! In fact, I would eat Buko Salad first before I dig in to the main course if I can have it my way.

Fried Pork Chop


At home, magic sarap and crispy fry is our language when we're talking pork chop. What about when these two things are absent or when one is totally against packed seasoning mixes? Good old salt and pepper is the way to go. Coating with flour also helps keep the pork chop's juices in.

Choco Hazelnut Brownies


This Chocolate Hazelnut Brownies is a favorite of one of my nephews. But we seldom make this at home because unless you stomp your foot down or hide the chocolate hazelnut spread from everybody, nutella will become sandwich spread or eaten by the spoon faster than you can say chocolate hazelnut in one breath. Yes, it gets consumed fast.

Oven Toaster Pork Barbecue


Love pork barbecue but hate firing up charcoal? Just use your oven to grill them tasty barbecue. You'll slightly miss the nice meat aroma caused by charcoal grilling, but other than this, not much of a difference really. :)

Adobong Pusit


When we have squid in the fridge, the first dish to come to mind is.. Adobong Pusit. You guessed right. So here it is. :) From fridge to plate. I tell you, my mother is a big fan of adobo and she has rubbed off on me big time. My mom makes everything into adobo: pork adobo, chicken adobo, adobong isda, adobong kangkong, Adobong Pusit, adobong sitaw, adobong tahong, adobong bituka, adobong palaka, you name it, she has probably done it.
