Tagalog Chicken and Pork Adobo

Share I am the only one in the family who loves dishes cooked in coconut milk. It isn’t often that I cook this but I like variety in our weekly set of dishes. I’ve shared Chicken Adobo with Coconut Cream that I often ate as a little girl in my hometown Cebu. I thought it was a Cebuano dish. What I didn’t know was that the Tagalog Chicken...

Chicken Adobo in Coconut Cream

Share Chicken Adobo in Coconut cream is my favorite adobo of all time. It’s actually a comfort food, a childhood memory. Sadly, I don’t often cook this because two family members don’t really like dishes with coconut milk. This is actually simple to cook. If you don’t have time to prepare coconut milk, just use the ready to mix...

Ginataan

Share I never knew how to make ginataan until I became a mother. I recall eating ginataan as a child but never took the time to cook it as I was growing up. Even when I took up Principles in Food Preparation in UP Diliman under the late Matilde P. Guzman and learned the technique of Extracting Coconut Cream and Coconut Milk, I still didn’t take...

Ginataang Hipon at Gulay (Vegetables in Coconut Milk)

Share I am not too fond of vegetables but when “gata” or coconut milk/cream and ginger is added, it just gives a tasty flavor to it. “Ginataang Hipon at Gulay ” is of course your ordinary simple vegetable fare but adds a touch of color when adobo is served with it. I don’t understand why my kids don’t like anything with...

Laing Pasta, the Pinoy Pasta Version

Sep 02

http://pinoyfoodblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/laing-pasta-300x198.jpg

Share I never tasted Laing Pasta until I had it at Goldilocks. I thought it was such a novel idea, similar to the pesto pasta that we often prepare at home. It is our own version of pinoy pasta. When I tasted it though, it wasn’t that delicious as I imagined it to be. I think the laing was too dry, lacked some meat and “keso”. I...
