GINISANG MONGGO (Monggo Guisado)

When we were kids, my Mom would boil some monggo for the Ginisang Monggo and reserve some plain boiled monggo for us to eat with sugar and milk. That was sooo good. I think I loved that monggo-milk […]

Paksiw na Baboy or Paksiw na Pata reminds me so much of childhood. I have always loved this dish because of the bulaklak ng puso ng saging (banana blossoms) and the sweet and sour taste of the sauce.

PINANGAT NA ISDA SA KAMIAS

Pinangat na isda sa kamias na niluto sa palayok reminds me so much of my Lola (grandmother), who used to cook fish dishes using a palayok (terracota pots).
