If you ask me what my favorite salad green is, I’d tell you it’s arugula. If you ask me what my second favorite salad green is, I’d say lettuce. If you ask me what kind of lettuce, I’d tell you any kind except iceberg lettuce. If you ask me what other vegetables I want in [...]

Parmesan-crusted chicken

I’d call it chicken Parmesan but, apparently, the term chicken Parmesan is often used interchangeably with chicken parmigiana (see the pork version). So, since this dish has neither tomato sauce nor melted cheese topping, to avoid confusion, I’m naming it Parmesan-crusted chicken. It’s chicken katsu with a twist. Chicken fillets are pounded to about a [...]

Sweet and tangy pork, water spinach (kangkong) and pineapple spring rolls

Ten years ago, if you had asked me what my favorite sauce is in the whole world, I’d probably have said, “Sweet and sour sauce.” If you had asked me the same question five years ago, I would have said, “Pesto.” These days, it’s the sweet and tangy Vietnamese nuoc cham. It’s basically a sweet [...]

Dulce de leche mini cheesecakes

Now that we are again able to successfully make dulce de leche at home, my mind’s running wild with all the desserts that I can make with it. Trifles, truffles, brownies and blondies… I’m hoping that these mini cheesecakes will only be the first among many dishes that I can create with homemade dulce de [...]

No one should ever feel too old to play

The night we went to see the Sherlock Holmes sequel, we were two hours too early for the last full show at the Eastwood Mall. We had had dinner already and we weren’t sure how we’d pass the time. We ambled around, spent some thirty minutes inside the bookstore then did some window shopping when [...]

Thai spiced iced tea

When Speedy saw Giada de Laurentiis making this spiced tea on her TV program, the first question he asked was whether we had star anise. Of course, I said, we always have star anise in stock. A couple of days later, he made the tea but didn’t bother taking photos. I felt that Speedy wasn’t [...]

Scrap pork tacos

Long-time readers know my penchant for making broth by simmering scrap bones with vegetables, herbs and spices. While the best are scrap ham bones (sold per kilo by ham makers Majestic and Adelina), they are not always available. Not only are the nearest outlets of both Majestic and Adelina quite far from our house, supply [...]

Dulce de leche: all you need is a pan and boiling water

Long before we came across the term dulce de leche, Speedy and I had been boiling sweetened condensed milk in its unopened can to transform the milk into a thick caramel. We’d spoon the caramel and just eat it like that. So indulgent. So delicious. This was around the time that Sam was a little [...]

Paintings, frames and easels

A few years ago, a girl friend visited her younger’s brother’s new house and told us about the ornamental mirrors on the floor. Okay, I grew up with mirrors on the wall, at eye level, so I was more than a bit surprised. I said, “…on the floor?” “Yes,” my friend said. Her sister-in-law told [...]

How we spent the weekend and a recipe for zucchini fritters

I introduced my daughter Sam to Pinterest and she now treats it as a ?menu? — she repins all the food pics that she likes (and in just a span of one week, she already has an amazing amount of posts in her “Fooodddduh” board), she shows them to me then insists that we replicate [...]

Fettuccine aglia e olio with sun-dried tomatoes

The classic Italian spaghetti aglia e olio has only three basic ingredients: pasta, olive oil and garlic. Salt is added for flavor; parsley is sprinkled for color and texture. There are only two steps in the preparation of the dish: boiling the pasta the tossing it in the olive oil in which the garlic had [...]
