Sago’t Gulaman

Sago’t Gulaman

Try this Sago't Gulaman drink. A Filipino sweet refreshment made from brown sugar syrup with tapioca pearls and almond jelly. This post is actually a bit overdue because I made this sago't gulaman the same time I made Taho. Well, simply because I have some brown sugar syrup and cooked tapioca pearls left from my homemade taho. I only had to make the almond jelly or gulaman in this case. 'Sago' is what we call the tapioca pearls in Filipino and 'gulaman' generally refers to gelatin.  Aside from the three main ingredients already mentioned, there is…Read more→

Tortang Talong (Eggplant Omelette)

Get this recipe for Tortang Talong or Eggplant Omelette with ground pork for a hearty Filipino breakfast! Omit the pork and make it vegetarian!I love eggplants, although growing up, I was told that you do not get much nutrition from this veggie...ooopppss, I mean fruit.

There are a lot of health benefits you can get from eating this fiber-rich vegetable, I mean fruit.  Still, true or not,…Read more→

Have a feast with this classic Filipino Menudo recipe. A tomato-based stew of pork meat and liver usually served at special occasions like Fiestas.

This is a quick and easy Mongolian Beef recipe where beef is first stir-fried and then the thickened sauce is added later.

Seafood Pasta Linguine in Chunky Tomato Sauce

Seafood Pasta Linguine in Chunky Tomato Sauce

This seafood pasta is one of the quickest and easiest pasta recipes I have ever done. It could be cooked in less than 20 minutes.  I love everything seafood! Fish and shellfish alike. Shrimps, crabs, lobsters, clams, squids, mussels! I miss them all. Even in the Philippines, it is always a treat to have seafood for a meal as they are becoming expensive. Ok, maybe not all and they are still a lot affordable compared to buying them here in Germany or most of Europe.  That is why I take the chance to…Read more→

Homemade Taho Recipe (Soft tofu with syrup and tapioca pearls)

Try this Taho recipe (Soft tofu with syrup and tapioca pearls) and learn how to make Taho at home easily. This method uses Epsom salt and instant soy milk.  We grew up on this! Taho is a favorite after breakfast treat back when we were small and when we were not so small anymore. I remember having it every morning at weekends and like almost every day during school summer vacation. Our regular Taho peddler would usually come mid-morning and once we hear him shouting "Tahhoooooo" in his big melodious voice, we would…Read more→
Pulled Beef Asado

Pulled Beef Asado

Try this simple pulled beef Asado recipe that is literally slow cooked until it becomes so tender without using any fancy slow cooker.  I see all these lovely pictures of pulled pork or beef in all the food porn sites like Foodgawker and Tastespotting and also in Pinterest and Instagram all the time. Since then I've always wanted to try it but most of the recipes are using a slow cooker a.k.a Crock Pot.  I, however, don't own one (and still weighing it if I should get one or not). So this pulled beef…Read more→
