Easy Recipes: No Knead Artisan Bread

I love baking! It helps me relax and take my mind off the stressful and sometimes, dreary stuff that goes on in my head sometimes. I think I mentioned once that I even tried my hand at the baking business. My dad paid for a few workshops and off I went selling my cookies and my goodies at local bazaars. Alas! I lack the entrepreneurial skills I need to grow my income so I ended up letting the idea go and just baked for my children, which, to be honest, I find much more fun. Anyway, a friend of mine, […]

Easy Recipes: Homemade Ice Cream with Iced Gem Biscuits

What a beautiful Sunday! Not too humid, if I may say so. The past few days had been unbearably hot that it’s been very difficult to stay away from sodas and Ice Cream. So if you have been pretty successful with your diet enough to deny yourself of these summer quenchers, good on you! Last month, we received one of the best treats everrrrrr — Iced Gem Biscuits! I’ve been munching on Iced Gems since my preschool days so it’s not surprising that my kiddos love it just as much. Baon mula noon hanggang ngayon (Snacks then and now) I […]

I was not able to attend the recent launch of Ajinomoto’s Sarsaya Oyster sauce a couple of weeks ago, but I was lucky enough to still receive a sample of it, along with a few recipes to try it with such as Ginisang Kangkong (water spinach) with Tofu.

Anyway, I followed the recipe and came up with this delicious dish. It was Chef Mac who demonstrated how to cook this, as well as the Thai […]

Easy Recipes: Creamy Chicken & Mushroom dish with corn on the side

We call this recipe Chicken a la Chy after my friend, Phoebe a.k.a “Chy” to her childhood friends,  who introduced the dish to us. But in the cook book Cherished Traditions that was published by our South church a couple of years ago, they entitled it “Chicken a la King….and Phoebe.” What it actually is, is a creamy chicken & mushroom dish served with corn (and apparently, chips!) on the side. But you can call it any way you like. I realized that I haven’t shared any recipes lately and since we cooked this tonight, I thought I’d share with you how […]

Easy Recipes: Learning how to cook Tuna Pilaf with Chef DJ Santos

I recently had the privilege to learn to cook from one of today’s top chefs, Chef DJ Santos. And it’s great, too, because the event was hosted by one of my favorite kitchen product brands, Doña Elena. I was back at The Cookery where I also learned to create other great dishes some time ago, but this time, I was introduced to Doña Elena’s newest baby, the Doña Elena 100% Tuna in Sunflower Oil, which comes in two varieties – Chunks and Shredded. Perfect for a healthy holiday! I thought it was perfect timing for Doña Elena to launch their tuna products as the […]
