Recipe: Easy Mixed Vegetable Fried Rice

We Filipinos love to experiment on left over meals, fried rice is definitely among the most sought after Pinoy breakfast favorite. It can go from the simple ginisa version to the Chinese inspired Yang Chow rice. My version is a combination of both, something home chef wannabes can easily prepare. :)

Recipe: Champorado

This chocolate rice porridge is a familiar breakfast treat we Filipinos love to eat as it kind of brings back many fun childhood memories. What makes this dish extra fun to eat is you can play and create your own design from poured condensed milk, just like what I did here! Making your very own champorado is made easier today with ready mix, ready to cook boxes of Champorado brands. If you wish to do it the traditional way, check out the recipe below:

1 cup glutinous (sweet/sticky) rice
2 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup (more or less to taste) unsweetened cocoa
1/2 cup (more or less to taste) sugar
1/8 tsp. vanilla extract (optional)
4 ounces sweetened condensed milk

1. Cook or boil rice in a medium-sized saucepan with 2 1/2 cups water.
2. Stir constantly to prevent rice from sticking at the bottom.
3. When rice is fluffy and soft, add cocoa, sugar and vanilla.
4. Serve in bowls with swirls of sweet condensed milk on top. Serves 4 people. (recipe source)

Biscocho Haus: Iloilo's Famous Pasalubong Shop

A few weeks ago, my aunt brought home some really yummy pasalubong from Iloilo. A trip in Iloilo wouldn't be complete without visiting the famous Biscocho Haus. This outlet has been serving some of the best ever food pasalubong in the Philippines, having existed for more than 3 decades now. Dad used to frequently drop by this place and he'd surely bring home bags of these yummy treats. My favorite however is their butterscotch!

Recipe: Chicken Schnitzel with Buttered Mixed Vegetables

Chicken Schnitzel is a very popular dish in Australia. I got my inspiration to cook this dish from watching Junior Master Chef - it's such an easy dish to prepare plus chicken is really on top of my comfort food list. I didn't follow their version of the dish all the way since I don't have those fresh herbs and crustless sourdough bread so I simply improvised and revised, work with ingredients I have in in the kitchen. Here goes my version of Chicken Schnitzel with Buttered Mixed Vegetables.

Shakey's Monster Meal Graduation Dinner

Last March, two of my siblings graduated from Highschool. It was a great day for all of us, yey no more highschool student!!! After the graduation ceremony, we headed straight home and waited eagerly for Shakey's Monster meal I ordered 5 hours ago (I requested for a 7pm delivery). We were delighted to see the huge servings but was too disappointed when I found out the deliveryman didn't know about my mode of payment so he didn't bring that swipe machine. Well that's bad, I certainly did my part, noting online and thru phone about my preferred payment. I talked to their customer service beforehand and confirmed that I will be paying thru credit card- a disappointing service right there.  And so I paid cash... 
Shakey's monster meal deal
The meal was really good, it certainly satisfied 10 hungry stomachs and the graduates were happy as all food served right before us were what most people would think about comfort food. It certainly was  the most delish monster so far. I just hope the credit card issue won't happen again.

Sizzling Plate's Sizzling Sisig

I barely eat in fastfoods restaurants today compared to while I was still working in the city. But when I do visit some places in the Metro, I can't help but order some dishes that I miss, and that definitely includes sizzling sisig! This Php99 dish from Sizzling Plate (seen in many foodcourts) is enough to satisfy that crave. Contents of the plate? Ground Pork served on a sizzling plate, java rice, topped with egg and buttered vegetables on the side.
