Gold Pork and Chicken Adobo

Gold Pork and Chicken Adobo

The family knew from the aroma wafting through the house that adobo was in the works. So they were a bit surprised when they opened the pot and saw this…

Kangkong (On Choy) Adobo Style

Kangkong (On Choy) Adobo Style

This was our vegetable of choice when we grilled tilapia and squid. It was the perfect pairing! I hadn’t realized that my girls don’t remember ever having this vegetable since I don’t buy it often. It’s also not always available in the market and when it is, it is always on the expensive side. The…

Arroz Caldo – Chicken Soup with Rice

All the rich foods of the holidays, and having a snowy after-Christmas morning had me yearning for something simple and comforting. I had cooked a very plain version of this dish for my sick daughter a couple of weeks ago. It was more plain rice porridge than what we Filipinos recognize as Arroz Caldo or…

Homemade Pork Tocino

Homemade Pork Tocino

(Updated 1/3/2010) We love this homemade tocino recipe and so have many of our blogging friends who have tried it. There are many different versions of making Filipino tocino out there, but very few of them use cider vinegar like this one. Most of the ones I have seen online and even in most cook…
