Noche Buena and Holiday Cooking Ideas

Dec 09


That’s me and my family in last year’s Christmas Eve Noche Buena. I am sure a lot of you are planning your noche buena dishes for Christmas and New Year. That’s why you are here. I have my black book of recipes that serve as my recipe resources. I like to do a lot of preparation just before the actual cooking so I don’t get stressed out. Here are a few recipes that I have cooked in the past. Some don’t have photos yet because years ago, I didn’t think I’d put them in a food blog. This page will be updated often so bookmark this page for the rest of December.

      Dear Mom blogger,

      This is one of a kind site I’ve just discovered! Thanks to you! My wife and I have been discussing several traditional filipino dishes for our first noche buena in our new home, and this site just made our noche buena planning as easy as abc! From main course to desserts, seems it just made everything very easy for us. God bless, and more power to you!

      Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year!
