How to sprout mung beans in a jar

How to sprout mung beans in a jar

Sometimes a dish I'de like to cook would need Mung bean sprouts, which for some, might not be a problem. But since I moved here in Germany, I have to, either,  settle for the bottled ones, which I find awful (limp and taste totally different). Or option #2...drive 30 kilometers to get them fresh(ish) from the nearest Asian store from our place (if they have it). Faced with these options, I usually end up skipping it or not cooking the dish altogether. Like for the longest time, I have been planning to make…Read more→
Skinless Longganisa

Skinless Longganisa

The smell of Longganisa being cooked is enough reason to get up in the morning. I don't know about you, but in my (totally biased) opinion, Filipino breakfast are the best and there are so many choices. Heavy or light, sweet or savory and so on...think Tocino, longganisa, tapa, danggit, arroz caldo, tamales, suman, pandesal, champorado with tuyo, garlic fried rice and let's not forget taho! Those are just some of my favorites.     But Longanissa is not limited to being a breakfast food, it can be served for lunch and dinner too,…Read more→

It is like a long forgotten memory that has resurfaced as I knock my brains out thinking of what to make of the Cream Dory fillets sitting on the bottom shelf of our freezer.

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

A perfect combination of sweet and tart, this strawberry rhubarb pie with crisp crumb topping is simply delicious! One of my favorite things about spring, is watching the plants and trees wake up from its winter slumber.

I just can't get enough of this beautiful yet weird plant. Like, how do you even classify it? I was in the grocery store…Read more→
