Tinapa Fried Rice

My children never like fried rice.  They find it hard to swallow and very tasty, not something they want to eat for breakfast.  But as they grow up they develop a certain taste for a variety of food (spicy food in particular).  These days my youngest daughter Lily would call it “special breakfast”.   She would, she would call her brother and tell him: Kuya Ruben, Nanay is making a special breakfast!   When the truth is I just want to make use of some leftovers in the fridge. 😀...

Salted Egg and Dilis Fried Rice

Which do you serve for breakfast a freshly cooked rice or a tasty fried rice? Our family loves a freshly cooked rice every meal specially for breakfast, the kids find the rice from the rice cooker soft and easy to eat.  Although we prefer a freshly cooked rice over fried rice I thought I whip it up a little and surprised them with a tasty fried rice for breakfast one weekend.  I made them salted egg and dilis fried rice, we first had it at Kuya J in Cherry, Congressional Avenue when we dined it for dinner and we loooved...

Pinoy Style Chashu Rice Recipe

When I discovered chasu can be rice toppings too and you can make it with all the available recipes you can find in your local wet market. 🙂  I’m like: YES! I’ve always known Chasu as ramen toppings. 🙂 Turns out it’s really nice with rice.  The combination of chasu with spring onions and Japanese mayonnaise is really good.  This is originally Slide’s recipe since he’s obsessed with ramen, he learned to make it at home and play with the ingredients using locally available...

How to Take a Perfect Foodstagram That Get More Likes

Why do you take pictures of your food? If you ask me I take pictures of my food to appreciate,  to remember, to document my recipes and build community around it.  A community or a small group of people who will want to eat what I eat and cook what I cook.   Although food photos can influence a person’s appetite or food preferences, aesthetic still plays a major role here, like how well-lit the food is, if it is shot in a nice angle or perspective and if the color and presentation of the food is...

Food Review: Mendokoro Ramenba The Best Japanese Ramen Place

Are you a family of ramen fan like us?

Peach Creamsicles Recipe

The summer heat has got me overflowing with ice dessert ideas including ice candy, slushies and popsicles!   Just a few days ago I made peach slushies and today I made peach creamsicles, it’s peaches and milkshake treat.   It’s a blockbuster hit, I can’t stop my daughter Lily from eating it all.  Since it’s a bit big for her mouth I had to put in shot glass so it won’t drip on the floor everytime she gives it a lick. This one is really easy to make, all you need is an ice-cube tray, a...
