Pork and beans face off: Hunt?s versus Ram

Because I grew up with Hunt’s and Speedy grew up with Libby’s, we wanted to do a Hunt’s versus Libby’s pork and beans face off. But we were unable to find Libby’s in the groceries that we visited so we decided to pit Hunt’s against the brand that was just as widely available as Hunt’s. [...]

Chunky ham and mushroom soup

This is probably the first real dish that I cooked in days. The bug I caught left me with very little appetite and when I don’t feel hungry, trust me when I say that anything I cook will reflect the way I feel. So, I didn’t even bother to make an attempt. We had a [...]

Grilled cheese sandwiches

I caught a bug. First, an annoying ache just below the back of my neck that spread to the shoulders. Then, a persistent stomach ache. Then, fever. Yep, some kind of flu. But, these days, because the flu virus has mutated in so many ways, it was hard to tell at first. Or, maybe — [...]

Silken tofu with four sauces

Some say that the appreciation for tofu is an acquired taste. You either like it or you don’t. Of course, that being simplistic. What you like, or don’t, is not something that happened overnight. Rather, it is the result of years and years of eating habits which, in turn, are influenced by culture, economic status [...]

Why prunes and apples are my tummy?s best friends

When Sam and Alex were very young, apple juice and prune juice were practically staples in our house. Sam often had problems digesting anything too oily while Alex… Well, see by the time that Alex was a year old, Sam could already eat chocolates and potato chips and we didn’t know she would give Alex [...]

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 [...]
