Catfish in Coconut Milk

Catfish in Coconut Milk

My apologies to Kai for the late posting. The past few weeks have just been too hectic and hadn’t had much time to cook. I really meant to cook something sweet for this month’s Lasang Pinoy challenge, but I ran out of time and decided to just look through my recipes on the ‘wait-to-post’ list…

Mungo: Mung Bean Soup

Mungo: Mung Bean Soup

This is another dish where there are as many variations as there are regions in the Philippines. Some prefer it thick some like it soupy. Some like to put different types of vegetables with it. Me, I happen to like mine on the soupy side and I like it best with bittermelon (ampalaya) leaves. I…

Pork belly braised with shrimp paste

Pork belly braised with shrimp paste

In the Philippines, this dish is also called ‘binagoongan’. Translated loosely as something cooked in bagoong, a term used for fermented fish or in this case shrimp paste. While I have heard of this dish for years I have never made it myself nor have I ever tasted it, I don’t think. I was intrigued…

Paksiw na Bangus

Paksiw na Bangus

In light of the spoon incident, I wanted to post this dish that cannot be eaten with a fork and knife (I’d like to see someone try), but begs to be eaten by hand. Milkfish or Bangus is the national fish of the Philippines. It is a delicious fish, but it makes you work for…

When we were growing up in the Philippines, specifically Baguio, what I remember the most with every impending storm was the sirens. My friend TingAling provides a colorful description of the signaling system and other Baguio experiences in her entry. When the sirens go off, we knew that school will be cancelled and we’ll be…

Pinapaitan ~ Lasang Pinoy!

Pinapaitan ~ Lasang Pinoy!

The first Lasang Pinoy event is here, and it is to commemorate Ninoy Aquino Day. I am ignorant to political details so I wouldn’t be able to tell you much about the background of Philippine politics that catapulted Benigno Aquino Jr. to legendary status. To most Filipinos, he is akin to JFK to Americans. Most…

Snails Ilokano Style (Leddeg)

Snails Ilokano Style (Leddeg)

Karen’s comment in the Manila Bulletin article below about rice paddy snails reminded me of this delicacy. My mom visited last month to pick up the girls, and while she was here we made a trip to the Chinese grocery store in Raleigh. I have seen these snails there before, but I never bought any…

Pig’s Feet Paksiw

Pig’s Feet Paksiw

I have been tracking Manang’s posts on the unwanted parts of pork, and she got me hankering for something sinful, and I have been eyeing these pig’s feet at the grocery store for some time but I wasn’t sure how to cook them. So I too referred to Sassy’s recipe for paksiw na pata. I…
