Steamed Lapu-Lapu Using Simple Touch Food Steamer

Steamed Lapu-Lapu Using Simple Touch Food Steamer

Posted by on Jun 10, 2016 | 8 comments

I never realized  that there are so many advantages to owning a food steamer that I started wondering why I waited so long to get one. 

Ever since I got the Simple Touch Food Steamer I started steaming most of our food, even hotdogs! Yes, hotdogs! :)

I just learned that steaming is one of the most nutritious ways of cooking food, because it allows the boiling water to vaporize into steam, and this steam heats the food without removing its nutrients. The food always stays separate from the boiling water and this results in a moist texture of food.  Unlike boiling, where the process can leach your food of nutrients.

Food Steamer

My first, steamed dishes using the Simple Touch Food steamer are: steamed lapu-lapu, mixed vegetables, and store-bought siomai.  You can find my recipe of steamed lapu-lapu just below this post.

I steamed everything using my new Simple Touch Food Steamer.

This steamer is a wonderful choice when you’re looking to quickly and efficiently cook delicious and nutritious meals for the whole family. It has a three tier design makes it easy to steam various food at the same time, such as meat and vegetables, or seafood.  

It has a transparent sides which I personally enjoy because I can see the food being cooked. 

My favorite features are the water level indicator, LCD display, and the keep warm. :)

I like the water level indicator because I find it very helpful to make sure I will not overflow it or run out of water in the process.

The LCD display lets me know when the device is on, and what cycle it’s set to.

I also find the keep warm feature to be very effective, it  keeps the steamed dishes at the ideal temperature while I set the table or wait for the other meals to be prepared.

I’m so glad I finally got myself a food steamer.  My next menu are: steamed tofu in soy sauce, steamed spareribs with black bean sauce and some steamed kangkong. :)  Watch out for my steamed recipes soon.  

My next kitchen appliance purchase would be a slow cooker — I wonder how these wonderful kitchen appliances would streamline my cooking time. :) .

Sometimes it’s good that you run out of something in the kitchen, it test your resourcefulness and creativity.  

Since, the school will open soon I thought of starting my 2016 best baon ideas series, just like what I did in 2015.  

In my list, I wrote first — 1. Barbecued Chicken Breast. Everything was ready except the barbecue sauce! Ooops…

Little did I know that I just threw the empty bottle last week. I was left with nothing, so I thought to improvise, I don’t want to mess up my list and I want to stay in my scheduled post, I will use whatever is available in my kitchen!   

And surprise, I surprised my myself! Yehey!

I made a delicious Barbecued Chicken Breast using my very own barbecue basting recipe.  You have to check below for the complete recipe and while you scroll down I want you to enjoy the photos I just did.  I have been absent from food photography for a few weeks and I consider it as a comeback! Enjoy! :)

Skillet Chicken Adobo and Cheese Dip with Pull Apart Bread

Skillet Chicken Adobo and Cheese Dip with Pull Apart Bread

Posted by on Apr 8, 2016 | 0 comments

I have to say this, so far, this is one of the most creative dish I’ve made.  Who would have thought of baking their bread and dip in one pan?

It’s like my cooking endeavor has becoming more of a challenge to myself than a past time.  I like where it’s going…

You will smell the aroma of bread and the savory taste of Purefoods Sexy Chix all over the house.  The famous Filipino expression, Amoy pa lang busog ka na, perfectly best describes this dish.

Find time to make this dish, I took a detailed photos and description below.

Happy cooking, everyone!





  • pre-made dough
  • 2 cans of Sexy Chix Adobo Chunks
  • 1/2 cup Magnolia Cheezee
  • 3 cheese slices


1. Prepare your dough.


2. Cut the dough in small pieces.


3. Roll dough into 1 1/2 inch balls.



4. Line the edge of the skillet with the dough, cover it with cling wrap and set aside for 10-15 minutes.



5. Put the Sexy Chix adobo Chunks and Magnolia Cheezee in a bowl and mix. (You can put aside some of the sauce of Sexy Chix Adobo so the sauce won’t be runny.) IMG_9334


6.  In the inside of the skillet, surrounded by the dough balls, put the dip mixture to fill the center.



7. Brush the dough with oil.



8. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until cheese is fully melted and dough is beginning to brown.


9. Serve and enjoy!


 In this dish, I used Purefood’s Sexy Chix Adobo Chunks.  I like how it smells and tastes like our home cooked adobo, masarap na, masustansya at kayang-kaya pa! 


Thank you for reading ladies.
