So I’ve never made this before, but its been on my list of to do’s. While I didn’t quite have all the right ingredients, I managed to pull it off going by memories from childhood. Sopas is a staple comfort food—macaroni chicken soup, in the Philippines. Made of the simplest ingredients in less than an hour time.
As far back as I can remember,
my first love for sandwiches began in middle school. Freddie’s Sandwiches, the little sandwich shop that could situated on the corner of Francisco Street in San Francisco.
Replacing some of the butter with cream cheese created cookies that are soft, thick, moist, and tender. Although you can’t taste the cream cheese, the cookies have a richness and depth of flavor. Plus there’s an abundance of chocolate in every bite. The dough can be made in advance, refrigerated, and baked as desired, up to 5 days later. A great option to have for fresh, warm cookies without having to mix up dough.
I’ve been on a cookie baking binge the past few days, and this is one of three recipes I will share with you this week.
A typical day, doing typical things…one of which was bingeing on the Cooking Channel, particularly Beach Bites with host Katie Lee. After a couple of hours and a handful of episodes later, I was definitely inspired.

We are fortunate enough to receive some organic vegetables from our friend. From fava beans, to various types of squash, to cucumbers, to zucchini. Today I’m excited to share with you a lasagna recipe I’ve never done before using zucchini.
In Spain, escabeche is fried fish marinated in vinegar or citrus. The dish, along with the name arrived […]
Well, I don’t really know much about this Hawaiian dish…other than I’ve only had Lau Lau a number of times from a chain eatery in shopping malls. Of course, not knowing what home cooked Lau Lau could possibly taste like; and seldom do I run across authentic Hawaiian food where I live, I decided to just make them myself!
Well…here I am! Back in the cooking game after our 6th move in August. I will not go into much details …but, I am pretty sure this is THE ONE!
Of course, in my new little kitchen, the first meal I made (by request from our teen) was Pork Sinigang (Filipino sour soup or stew). A staple in any Filipino home, and quite the favorite for many–young and old. Thus, on the topic of Filipino food, comes the wondrous Pork Adobo…
Tocino is bacon in Spanish, typically made from the pork belly and often formed into cubes in Spain. […]
Aloha! Ever since my fascination with Buzz Feed’s original Loco Moco Rice Burger recipe (partial below), I wanted to challenge myself to making some. Well, just as I suspected, it was not as easy as I anticipated, but nevertheless, here we go…
Hi there! Here’s a different take for those of you who are familiar with adobo–Filipino style. This is a perfect vegetarian dish if you want to experience the classic taste of Philippine adobo, but without the meat…
Out of curiosity and my love for cookbooks [and books in general], I managed to score a signed copy of CELEBRATE, A year of British festivities for families and friends by Pippa Middleton. In a nutshell, it is a comprehensive seasonal guide to simple and creative entertaining. Survey says…I’m a fan! I’ve taken detailed mental notes of the recipes I would like to challenge myself with. Most of which are already familiar to me.
