Pinakbet with Pork Recipe

This pinakbet with pork recipe is a kapampangan recipe which I inherited from my mother. I’m really glad to be able to cook this dish because it is one of my most favorite home cooked foods back home. Other versions of pinakbet recipes uses shrimps (which is the original Ilocano recipe) and fried/grilled fish. Both are delightful in their own distinct flavors. I’ve used pork in this recipe because of its unique flavor that goes really well with the veggies, especially when the pork is slightly crispy-fried.

Penne Tuna Creamy Pasta Recipe

This penne tuna creamy pasta recipe is one of the yummy recipes that my hubby makes.

When I arrived in the UAE on New Year’s Eve of 2008, I discovered that my then fiancée was famous for his creamy pasta dish. His friends were all praises of him and they beamingly call him as the “pasta master”. Friends can really be so supportive right? He can only cook one of the many sauces of pasta then he becomes the master! I couldn’t disagree with his friends because his creamy pasta is certainly delicious! A lot of friends have asked for the recipe and are proud of their own creation as well.

Nilagang Baboy (Pork Stew) Recipe

Nilagang baboy is a comfort food which is perfect during winter season. I grew up celebrating most Christmas with it because my mother would cook it for Christmas meal. I thought to prepare it as the temperature is now starting to drop here in the Middle East. In a few weeks, the long, dry and hot months will be gone.

This nilagang baboy recipe, which is a Kapampangan recipe, is a pork stew that is quite simple to make. It only involves one step of cooking that is boiling all ingredients by gradually adding them according to the required cooking time of each ingredient. For me, the trick to making a very tasty nilagang baboy is to use lots of different vegetables and make sure that the pork is tender. The pork and vegetables simmered together in a considerable amount of time will create a really tasty soup. All the minerals and vitamins from the vegetables will blend with the pork broth very nicely and one will be surprise at how the soup will taste healthy.

Spring Egg Omelette Recipe

We can always have fun with our egg omelettes by adding one or more other ingredients to it like vegetables or meat.

I am quite proud to this Spring Egg Omelette recipe because I was able to use the left over vegetables and created a vibrant egg omelette. The crunchiness of carrots added to the exciting texture. While the seasoning effect of the spring onions made it lighter to the taste compared to the usual sliced onions I am adding to my omelette.

I am not good though in flipping the omelette to retain it whole when cooking. Almost all the time it turns to be like small sheets of several omelettes just like in the photo. I’m not worried though because it doesn’t affect the taste :).

Must-try Sandwich at Charley’s Grilled Subs

Philly Steak Deluxe

We indulge to burgers and sandwiches at fast food chains once in a while. We thought that the newly opened Charley’s Grilled Subs at Al Wahda Mall is worth a try. We were right. This American food chain is a heartening alternative to a typical fast food sandwiches outlet, which usually serves sandwiches made of processed or deli meats. The Philly Cheesesteaks, which consists of sliced beef steaks, grilled onions and mozzarella cheese, is simply delicious and fresh-tasting. It is even made healthier with the Philly Steak Deluxe option, which is basically the same as the Philly Cheesesteaks with additional vegetables such as mushrooms and green peppers. It also comes with gourmet fries and a cup of soft drink when ordered as a gourmet combo meal.
