Fried Bananas with Salted Coconut Caramel Sauce

Fried Bananas with Salted Coconut Caramel Sauce

Miinatamis na saging, turon and the perennial banana cue are, for sure, some of the classic favorites we like to enjoy the cardava banana or what we locally call, saging na saba, but I'll bet you'll agree, a bite of these these fried bananas with salted caramel coconut sauce and you'll never eat bananas any other way again. As much as I love banana slices fried … [Read more...]

Sinigang na Hito sa Miso

 Did I just go over-zealous on you and started planning Christmas recipes in the month of September? Pardon my excitement, peeps. The holidays are still three months away but you know how time can stealthily creep on us and Christmas and the New year will be here before we even notice. Just a few days ago, I was sweating through a stifling-hot summer and now it's Fall! … [Read more...]

Buko Salad

Buko Salad

Would you believe it's just 89 days to Christmas? Wasn't it just yesterday when we took down our lights and trees? And now, Christmas is back, eager to knock on our door once more. As I tend to get on the party wagon late, I thought this year I'll start early with my holiday recipes and give you plenty of time to plan your festivities. And what dessert do we associate more … [Read more...]

Chicken Tocino

Chicken Tocino

Can you think of anything better to wake up to in the morning than a "silog" meal waiting on the table? Runny yolks, garlic-studded fried rice, sweet and salty cured meats...mmm, mmm, mmm! Best way to start my day, any day. "Silog", for the uninitiated, is the colloquial term used to describe a typical Filipino breakfast made up of fried rice (sinangag), sunny side up eggs … [Read more...]

Loslos

Loslos

Never heard of Loslos before? Me, neither. At least not until the beginning of last month when I discovered them on my fellow blogger, Mia's Russian Filipino Kitchen. As chance would have it, the day I saw these breaded pork ribs, I was actually  in the midst of cooking my baby back ribs with adobo glaze. I was so intrigued by her recipe that I would have prepared my baby … [Read more...]

Chicken and Pork Adobo

Chicken and Pork Adobo

Adobo has many regional variations and chicken and pork adobo is just one of the common interpretations of our quintessential Filipino stew. This version isn't really much different from adobo made solely of chicken or pork  but since we are combining two types of meat that has varying cooking times, I like to brown my pork (which requires longer cook time) a bit before I … [Read more...]

Nilagang Baboy

Nilagang Baboy

When my daughter decided a month ago to take a nursing job up north, I loudly expressed my protest but silently  untied my apron strings at the same.  She is her mother's daughter~resilient, head strong, free-spirited~so I know no amount of opposition can re-direct her once she made up her mind. I may be ambivalent about her decision to move hundreds of miles away but I … [Read more...]

Buchi

Buchi

Buchi has been in my bucket list for quite sometime but I've been putting off making them because I was intimidated by what I thought to be a complicated process. Of course, my trepidation was quite unnecessary as I soon realized, some things are indeed easier and simpler than they seem. Armed with the tips and tricks I read online, I made these mung bean-filled treats for … [Read more...]

Ampalaya with Chicken Feet

Ampalaya and Chicken Feet

The internet is abuzz these past few days with the fall from grace of Baltimore Raven's running back, Ray Rice. Watching his brutality on TMZ, I was enraged like most of the world wide web. The whole incident just felt so close to home for comfort. If you are a long time reader of Kawaling Pinoy and had the tenacity to read through my 200+ recipes, you probably noticed … [Read more...]

Longganisa Wontons

Longganisa Wonton

As you know, I had enough longganisa over the weekend to feed an army. An army of friends and family who begrudgingly sat through my self-serving tale of how I successfully made Filipino sausages complete with casing for the first time. But after I've divided among them the hefty batch and enjoyed some myself, I had about six links needing another purpose other than a … [Read more...]
