Well, unfortunately, my bags are not packed-but there is something around here that is: these recipes packed with goodness and taste. Welcome to the Caribbean,  a place that stirs the soul and reverberates with a unique culture that is at once sultry and sophisticated.

Relax and help yourself to enjoy, kick back, muddle yourself a new kind of cocktail from the Caribbean and get into the rhythm of the islands. The only other thing you need is a good scenery at home and you will feel like there cooling the waters of the Caribbean with these refreshing drinks.


At Caribben spin on the 150-year-old classic, this version infuses pineapple into a Pisco (a South American brandy) and uses fresh grapefruit and lime peels for added brightness.

You will need:

1                                4-pound pineapple, peeled, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 (170 ml bottle)         Pisco
2 cup                          Simple Syrup (see recipe below)
1 1/2 tsp                     grated lime peel
1 1/2 tsp                     grated white grapefruit peel
2/3 cup                       fresh lemon juice
Ice cubes
12                               pineapple leaves (optional)

Here's how:

1.) Place pineapple pieces in large jar. Pour Pisco over. Cover and refrigerate 3 days, shaking occasionally. Divide Simple Syrup between 2 bowls. Mix grated lime peel into 1 bowl and grated grapefruit peel into the other. Cover and refrigerate both syrups overnight.

2.) Strain Pisco into pitcher; discard pineapple.

3.) Strain both syrups into Pisco. Add lemon juice; stir to blend. Fill 12 small glasses with ice, then add punch. Garnish with pineapple leaves if desired.


Stir 1 1/2 cups sugar and 1 1/2 cups water in heavy large saucepan over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Increase heat and boil 3 minutes. Cool syrup, then cover and chill until cold, about 2 hours. (Will keep up to a month in the refrigerator.) Makes 2 cups.

The Pina Colada was born in Puerto Rico in the 1950s. Give this version an extra dose of the tropics with a stylish shredded-coconut rim.

You will need:

3/4 cup                       pineapple juice
1/2 cup                       canned sweetened cream of coconut (such as Coco Lopez)
6 tbsp                         white rum
6 tbsp                         citrus-flavored rum
1/4 cup                       chilled whipping cream
3 tbsp                         fresh lemon juice
4 cup                          crushed ice
Grated lemon peel
Ground nutmeg

Here's how:

Place first 6 ingredients in large blender. Add ice. Cover and blend until smooth. Pour into two-14 ounce glasses. Garnish with grated lemon peel and nutmeg.


Ginger beer is a staple in Jamaica, and the best is homemade. Resist the temptation to use commercial ginger beer for this drink-it's too sweet.

You will need:

2 cups                           water
2 ounces                       fresh ginger, unpeeled, finely grated
1 tsp plus 3/4 cup         fresh lime juice
1 tbsp (packed)            golden brown sugar
1 1/2 cup                      dark rum
3/4 cup                         Simple Syrup
1/4 cup                         falernum syrup
Ice cubes
8                                  lime peel curls (optional)

Here's how:

1.) Bring 2 cups water to boil in medium saucepan. Remove from heat. Mix in grated fresh ginger an d1 teaspoon lime juice. Cover and let stand 1 hour. Add brown sugar; stir to dissolve. Strain ginger beer into bowl, pressing firmly on solids to extract much liquid as possible (mixture will be cloudy). Cool completely. Transfer ginger beer to jar. Cover and chill at least 2 hours or up to 1 week.

2.) Mix rum, Simple Syrup, falernum, ginger beer, and remaining 3/4 cup lime juice in a pitcher. Fill tall glasses with ice. Pour mixture over. If desired, garnish rim of each glass with lime peel curl.

Falernum syrup is a sweet syrup flavored with lime, almond, ginger, and spices that's used to sweeten drinks. It's available at some liquor stores and online.

Plantains-unlike common bananas-can be used at every stage of ripeness. Don't worry if the market has only green ones; they'll ripen stored in a closed paper bag.

Unripe plantains peel is green and blemish-free, the ivory flesh is firm and starchy, and it tastes almost like a potato. Semi-ripe plantains are having a yellow exterior and black-speckled, the fruit is slightly sweet and starchy. And ripe plantains peel is black and shriveled, the plantain is fully ripened and at its sweetest.

When my peers asked me then where we would go for summer, I told them I'd be taking cooking lessons...not fully revealing that it would not be in the fancy schools which offered basic cooking and baking, but in my grandmother's cozy kitchen.

This summer meant Goodbye Baguio...Goodbye meeting new guys...Goodbye being with my cousins to summer outings. It was a consensus of our parents that with the greatest cooking teacher (my grandmother, of course) and her battery of well-trained and equally good cooking cooks wanting to teach their cooking secrets to us ladies of the clan, one summer had to be sacrificed. What women would have welcomed such a plan!

Appetizers Salad

By Juvy S. Iliwiliw

Because salads don't require cooking, a lot of  people imagine that they don't require much consideration, either; they're seen as something to be just tossed haphazardly together with whatever ingredients are on hand. In fact, the making of a successful salad requires real thought. Salad is naked food, and thus the freshness and quality of its raw materials are at least as important as they would be for cooked food.

Part of learning to appreciate the everyday is by making sure that the daily life you lead is one that you have chosen for yourself. Look at your environment; are there enough reminders of things that motivate you? Close your eyes and try to smell your surroundings, does it relax or cause you stress? It was found that people who have a potted plant, a view of the park or are exposed to greenery tend to work better and are a lot happier compared to people who see nothing but concrete and the traffic of vehicles and people.

Red Wine Braised US Beef Short Ribs

By Juvy S. Iliwiliw

As the sort of food shopper who cannot afford to buy US beef on a regular basis, Filipinos had quite forgotten that imported Bone in Beef went away. A lot of people in our family got sad when US beef became unavailable. We had to find other ways. And when the ban on US beef is being  lifted in different parts of the world. Many of us cheered!

And they are back, what's not to like about US Beef anyway, especially one that still has the bone on? It is buttery, tender, flavorful, all that beef ought to be.

I would consider Philippine cuisine to be still in immaturity. Sure, we have great and unique dishes and we have so much untapped regional specialties, but there seems to be a lack of identity which is distinctly us. There is hope however for the rebirth in our local cuisine. With cooking schools mushrooming , TV programs from the Food Network and Asian Food Channel, and the hundreds of restaurants featuring food from all over the region and the world, our local Chefs surely won't take the culinary invasion sitting down and watch all these progress takes place. That's why many of them are fusing local  ingredients and cuisine with  western techniques to produce world class dishes yet we can all call truly ours.

One of the most important components of French dishes is the sauce. Whether it be cream based, finished with butter, mixed with tomato paste or puree, or be it a simple reduction, sauces make the dish.

In cooking school, aside from knowing where and how ingredients are used, one of the most basic skills taught was making a good stock. Stocks serve as the base of almost every sauce in cookery. Beef and veal stock, chicken and lamb, fish and shellfish, all these stocks had to be mastered before moving on to real cooking.

Darling in the Kitchen

By Juvy S. Iliwiliw

I remember the summer after I turned 11 years old. I had been watching my mom bake and cook for years. Sometimes she would let me help. But that summer, I made my first solo attempt at baking. When I proudly presented my orange chiffon cake for my brother to taste, he sincerely complemented me with "This is the most delicious banana cake I have ever tasted!" Challenged by my brother's unintentional put down, I begin to practice often.

You can brew your mug of coffee in an assortment of manners and ways. Each approach has unique qualities to match various tastes, preferences, and lifestyles. But what all coffee makers have in common is that they brew your favorite beverage without the requirement to boil coffee in a separate container. The filter size, the water tank and the container combined shall determine the quantity of coffee that you are able to make with your machine.

Low Calorie Cookies

Sometimes we wonder if we could cook low calorie cookies and that is the absence of sugar and butter. What? These ingredients are the cornerstones to a yummy cookie, and in all honesty, leave them out of the equation and you come up with a product that pales in comparison.

The usual thing to be done is to substitute lower fat ingredients in place of their full-fat counterparts. But low-fat or skim milk, in place of whole milk, doesn't have much of an impact on a finished cake, since it only reduces the fat content slightly.

Nutrition is important for our daily lives. Nutrition requires us to think about what we eat and drink and how they will maximize our bodies to perform at their best each day under multiple conditions. The following article will give you nutrition tips to help your body perform at its maximum.

To get the most nutritional value out of vegetables, be careful to not overcook them. A light steaming keeps vitamins in broccoli, carrots and other veggies better than a boil that will wash nutrients out. They'll also be much more appealing prepared this way, with a satisfying crunch to them instead of a soggy mush-like texture.

Growing up, we have been taught to celebrate milestones, those once in a lifetime occasions that symbolize we have successfully completed something, for example, a birthday, a graduation, a promotion. There is absolutely nothing wrong with celebrating these wonderful moments. However, you must also remember that the everyday matters as much as the special days. So, as you look forward to the next big thing in your life, do not forget to appreciate the daily tasks that lead to the big occasion, i.e. if you are about to get married, enjoy the months of preparation. If you have a child that is about to graduate soon, remind him or her to savor the last few months with friends he or she grew up with.

Quick Breads in a Wink

By Juvy S. Iliwiliw

Most bakers love doing quick breads because they are fast and relatively easy to bake. Loaf and pan breads, muffins, biscuits, and scones are the general types of quick breads. Quick breads being versatile, one can experiment with various flavors and textures such as adding fresh fruits (bananas, berries and mangoes), dried fruits (cranberries, apricots and mangoes), or shredded vegetables (grated carrots and zucchini). But what exactly makes quick breads bake quick? Unlike yeast breads which require at least five to 10 minutes of kneading, quick breads need none at all because they aim for a tender texture rather than a chewy one. Quick breads are actually more like cakes than they are bread!~

Is this the year you will kick-start your career as home-based baker? Are you finally saying goodbye to those nagging ten pounds? Is this the year you will kick a bad habit? Many of us make promises like these to ourselves at the start of every year, spurred by hope and great expectation. Yet as weeks pass, the enthusiasm to stick to our promises slowly wane and old habits and mindsets start taking over again. Next thing you know, the realization of the possibilities you initially thought look dimmer and dimmer.

Tipsy Leche Flan

By Juvy S. Iliwiliw

       Caramelizing sugar for a flan used to be an elementary task. All you had to do was to pour the required amount of sugar into a thick-bottomed frying pan or copper pan and place it over low heat. Some bakers would pour the sugar straight into the required baking pan and position it directly over an electric or gas stove set on low. Next step would be to wait patiently for the right shade of brown before adding flan mixture or a cake batter. According to my grandmother, stirring was strictly prohibited. Lola Citas would always do her best to stop me from stirring the sugar in the pan, as this will make the sugar crystallize, preventing it from melting to a sweet, liquid amber.

Let us examine the fundamentals. All beer has 4 basic ingredients: Malted Barley, Hops, Yeast, and Water. For your first brew you will most probably be using Malt Extract in place of fresh malted barley or other malted grain, and this extract may appear "hopped" meaning that it has the hop tastes already infused into the malt extract.

If you have separate hops in your very first brew ingredients, they will most likely be hop pellets. Other components may get their way into a brew, however these are the fundamental needs. Therefore, let us take a quick glance at each of these fundamental 4 ingredients.

Even though they are largely believed to be vegetables, avocado's are in fact considered fruits. Avocados are generally produced in tropical climates like Mexico, Hawaii and Florida, but can be grown in temperate climates like California and Texas, too. Mexico is undoubtedly the largest producers of avocados.
