KMS Cooks: Pork Chop with Sweet Peppers

I’m a big fan of Gordon Ramsay, halos lahat ng cooking video nya sa youtube pinanood ko na. Ganun ako ka-elibs sa cooking skills nya. And because he’s one of my chef idol, everyday I tried to copy his recipes. He has this segment in youtube which is called Gordon Ramsay’s Ultimate Home Cooking and that’s where I got this Porkchop recipe.

I’m allergic to seafood particularly to shrimp and crab (Booo! IKR?!) but this allergy only occurs when the seafood isn’t fresh. That’s one of the reason why I love eating at Dampa because aside from their delish cuisine, I’m 100% sure that their seafood is fresh kasi alive na alive pa sila when you buy it, diba? Now this recipe that I am gonna share with you guys is one of my favorite dish.

KMS Cooks: Ginataang Bilo-Bilo

IMG_0098-001

 

Ginataang Bilo-Bilo(glutinous rice ball) is another authentic Filipino favorite and is widely popular here in our country. If you’re Bicolano/Bicolana (like moi!) then you probably know this Filipino dish. Bilbil (short for Bilo-bilo…chos! #imbentowords) is one of my favorite merienda, my paternal grandmother introduced this dish to me. And I swear my Lola cooks the best Ginataang bilo-bilo ever! She really is one of my pegs when it comes to cooking. Bilo-bilo is one of her specialties too so last Holy Week when we stayed in our house in Antipolo I tried to cook ginataang bilo-bilo. In fairness, my version of bilo-bilo was edible though I must admit that still nothing beats my Lola’s ginataang bilo-bilo. Continue reading

KMS Cooks: Beef Lasagna

IMG_0680

If you’re an avid reader of this blog, I bet you know that I’m a sucker for pasta dishes and I loooove cooking pasta. Aside from baking cakes and pastries, I also considered pasta as one of my specialties and my entire family can attest to that. I always cook pasta but I’d never tried lasagna for one reason– I’m too lazy to try it. Just having the thought of doing all the process makes me really go crazy and lazy. It’s kinda matrabaho kasi the layering and all, diba nakaka-shomad? But when I’ve tried it last week I realized it’s not nakakapagod at all. I mean it does but it’s really worth it. Minsan nauunahan lang talaga tayo ng katamaran natin. Continue reading

I don’t always have enough time cook at home especially during weekdays since I’m working but once I cook I make sure that it’s always special. I can turn a simple dish into a gourmet dish, just like what I did in this recipe that I’ll be sharing today. This is not an ordinary pasta dish because I used two different kinds of cheese here. It has mozzarella and  cheddar cheese, and it was baked too. The cheese definitely gives this pasta dish an extra kick and distinctive taste. I bet all cheese lover will surely love this!

I really thought that it’s so impossible to make your own pesto sauce at home kasi feeling ko ang hirap nyang gawin but boy oh boy….. I was wrong! Totally wrong!

When I saw the recipe in the world-wide-web I was thrilled because the ingredients are so easy to find in the market plus the recipe was so easy to do! It’s indeed a no-brainer recipe, all you need is food processor, basil, nuts, and garlic and you’re good to go!  As easy as that!

Happy Weekend + BitterSweet Monday

Hello guys! I feel a bit sad today…. sad yet excited. I’m flying in tomorrow for a business trip, ang corny no time to gala puro work lang. Plus having the thought na malalayo ako kay Cj and Cyler for a few days makes the trip more sadder. Hay. But I just think of the bright side. More career opportunity and career growth, right? Pero aanhin ko naman yun kung malayo ako sa pamilya ko. 4 days lang naman ako mawawala pero that four days feels like forever pag malayo ka sa pamilya mo especially if you have kids. I’m so gonna miss the batang makulit and my uber corny husband! I don’t know how I will survive the first few nights without Cyler sleeping by my side. Usually kasi nalalayo lang ako sa mag-ama ko pag may company outing which is usually overnight lang so keribombels lang, eto 4 days! Hay kalurks!

I’m gonna miss you baby!

Hello guys! How’s your weekend so far? Me, Cj, and Cyler were in food coma. I bet you already know the reason if you’re following me in Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter. Yes, I cooked a lot for my boys during weekend since that’s my only free time. Cj doesn’t like going out on weekends anymore because he wants me to cook instead of going out and eating in a resto.

Aminin! Wag echosera! 😛

Anyway, tonight I’ll be sharing this super-kaduper-mega-ultimate-no brainer Yang Chow Fried  recipe to all of you. This dish can be done in no time so it’s perfect in case you run out of idea what to cook for your family this weekend.

KMS Cooks: Scrambled Egg Muffins

20130922-211027.jpg

Since I’ve been cooking and sharing a lot of recipes here in my blog I decided to add “KMS Cooks” in the title of my recipes. I’ve been using this hashtag(#kmscooks) in my instagram, Facebook, and Twitter account too so I decided to used it here as well para madaling i-search. Taba ng utak ko noh? Puro aligue nga lang. Teehee! Btw, KMS stands for Kikay Mommy Sha, just so you know. 🙂

So there, let’s move on to the recipe. Recieving my package from King Sue Products was just on time because I used bacon in this recipe. And can I just say that King Sue’s bacon taste superb?! It is! Most especially when it’s crispy and hindi sya puro taba unlike other bacons. I really think that any dish paired with bacon taste really good! I tried this recipe last weekend when we went home to Antipolo, we stayed there the whole weekend so alam ninyo na ang ngyare sakin.. tumambay nanaman ako sa kitchen the entire day. Kaya super happy nanaman ng mga kapatid at tita ko kasi ipinagluto ko nanaman sila. Once I enter the house they would always ask me kung anong iba-bake or lulutuin ko for them. I guess that’s something they lookward to everytime we go there. And that’s something makes me really happy whenever I go home at my hometown. Continue reading

KMS Cooks: Sizzling Tofu Recipe

20130916-095243.jpg

I’m pretty sure you’ve been all waiting for this recipe so here it is! This recipe got a number of likes when I posted it in IG and FB and I’ve got a lot of queries about the recipe so today the long wait is over for those who are asking. I am just really happy that this recipe turned out just the way I like it. Our entire household love this dish too most especially my husband and my mother-in-law. Mommy (my MIL) said that it taste almost like a sizzling pork, if you’re not aware that it’s a tofu then most likely you would’ve thought that it is made of pork. Cj who seldom eat tofu surprisingly like this dish too. In fact, he can’t help himself from eating it hanggang sa maubos na. It’s supposed to be for our dinner but it was gone with the wind before I knew it. Oh nothing beats the compliment that I got from my family. Btw, this recipe was adopted from Max’s sizzling tofu recipe.

Now let’s move on to the recipe itself. Eggcited naba kayo? 🙂
