A delicious beef steak dish that doesn’t require a lot of ingredients, and with very little preparation, as well.

Kicking off the last day of summer vacation in high gear with this no-nonsense pork belly chili recipe.

My rule for any traditional recipe is to keep it simple and stick with the classic!

Afritada is one of many popular everyday entrée dishes in the Philippines.

Picadillo (Spanish pronunciation: [pikaˈðiʎo], “mince”) is a traditional dish in many Latin American countries and the Philippines (where it is known as giniling, and also arroz a la Cubana) that is similar to hash.

A specialty noodle dish in the Philippines smothered with a thick, golden shrimp sauce or other flavored sauce, and topped with: Shrimp, (the size and shell-on or shell-off depending on preference) Crushed or ground pork rind, chicharron, tinapa flakes, scallions, and fried garlic.

This classic comfort food is an easy way to learn how to cook a staple *Filipino cuisine. It has minimal ingredients that you may readily have available in your fridge and pantry.

Sopas is a staple comfort food—macaroni chicken soup, in the Philippines. Made of the simplest ingredients in less than an hour time.

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!

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…
