Lumpiang Sariwa

7:54:00 AM 17 Comments
One of the best Lumpiang Sariwa I ever tasted except for my mother's recipe is the one served at Goldilocks (One of the best bakeshops in the Philippines).

I had this recipe of Lumpiang Sariwa which I've been cooking for years now. My husband says it's very good and really healthy meal. This specific dish is made of stir-fried vegetables with shrimp or pork and roll in a wrapper (Spring Roll Wrapper). It is then topped with sweet sauce, minced peanuts and garlic. Some serve this as appetizer while others can have it for main course with boiled rice.

Chocolate Crinkles

2:22:00 AM 4 Comments
I know there's a lot of recipes for Chocolate Crinkles which you can find online. But there's a big difference when someone you know tried it already before you even attempt to do it. I would like to give credit to a dear friend Riz, a great mom and author of the blog Sibuyas Republic for this recipe. ("Thank you Riz. I love it so much") Although, her original recipe is a little different from what I did. There's a story about that.

Funny thing is that for all I know I have all the ingredients in the cupboard. So I started mixing all the dry ingredients. When I'm about to blend all the other ingredients I noticed that I don't have cooking oil. All I have that day was extra virgin olive oil and butter. Well, a girl scout in me decided to use the butter. There's no way I'm going to use olive oil anyway.

Since I used butter, I felt like I needed to adjust the measurement of some of the ingredients. Forgive me Riz if I changed your recipe a bit so I can go on with this baking.

Lesson learned: check your ingredients and prepare them ahead before starting. But still, I successfully made it. The taste is just right.

Sizzling Sisig

2:04:00 AM 13 Comments
Sisig is very popular in the Philippines. Most Filipino restaurants have this in their menu. It is commonly made of pig's ear, pig's face and pork liver. In this particular recipe I used loin steak (pork chops) and pork liver. It was my first time to cook this dish, but I'm so glad that it turned out well. Hubby enjoyed it a lot and so did I.

It Felt Like Home At Cafe Manila

When laziness kicks in, we can count always on one of the Filipino restaurants in Dublin called Cafe Manila. They serve different Filipino dishes that you can think of. All foods are freshly cooked by a Filipino Chef that is truly great with his craft. (Pity I didn't get his name.)
