The Avocado League Blog Tour

The Avocado League Blog Tour

I have been searching for inspiration for an original avocado recipe since I got notice for the Avocado League Blog Tour. But really, how original can one get with an ingredient that, in my opinion, is best consumed fresh and uncooked? I truly love avocado in all it’s fresh glory. I just can’t imagine subjecting…

LaPiS #5 – SOUR

LaPiS #5 – SOUR

This is my entry for this week’s Lasang Pinoy Sundays, which features photos of Filipino foods or foods cooked up by Pinoys. This week’s theme is Sour. While some people shy away from strong tastes such as sour, we seem to be drawn to it. Why, even when something doesn’t seem quite good enough to…

Papaya & Lime Juice

Papaya & Lime Juice

One of my favorites fruits is papaya. My daughters have never been very fond of it and couldn’t understand my liking for it. That is, until they went home to the Philippines in 2006. They are still gushing about the papaya they had over there. Sadly though, that just made them turn their noses up…

LP 11 – Cantaloupe Juice

Another summer time treat that I remember is this cantaloupe juice. I remember buying this from street vendors when I was growing up in the Philippines. I don’t know why, but the steet bought juice was always so much better than the known to be hygenically prepared juice from home. Today, I make this when…

Buttermilk Banana Bread

Buttermilk Banana Bread

Here’s another way to use up buttermilk and also over ripe bananas. It’s perfect for breakfast or afterschool snack. When I baked this a few weeks ago, I had plenty of buttermilk to use up. This past weekend though, when I found two over ripe bananas and wanted to make this bread again, I was…
