Tocino simply means bacon in Spanish. Typically made from pork belly, this dish is usually served for breakfast or brunch. Filipinos usually accompany tocino with rice and egg called To-Si-Log–Tocino, Sinangag (fried rice) and itlog (egg).  The following recipe is my personal rendition…with an extra twist.

Family means everything to me…I have two boys–one is starting middle school in a couple of weeks, whilst the other remain at our former neighborhood to complete his studies in journalism.

Back in high school, my eldest boy Brendan did all of the baking.  I’ve missed that since our move(s) without him.  He would often bake at night, and when he did, we were all guaranteed an enjoyable treat.
