Whenever I get the chance to hang around with my nieces and nephews during the weekends, I would really make sure that they are all pegged out when I will hand them again to their respective parents. This kind of special bond I have created with them has made me realized that I am putting something in their hearts that can't be erased with time. And after filling them, I can always have hugs and kisses in return. Just like when I made this tuna fettucine recipe during our dinner, I could hardly hear them talking because they were busy savoring the butter sauce that I have added on it. After that dinner, it was me who was dumb-founded because of the chorus of thanks that I heard from them. Such a heart warming experience that I can't forget with them.

If you have a husband who prefers to be with his drinking buddies than eating together with his family, do not nag about it. Impress your hubby with this dish and he might just go cold turkey on the nights out with his drinking buddies. After all, the easiest way to his heart is through his stomach so just fill him and he will never go astray even a single meal.

You will need:

4 slices bacon, chopped

1 small onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, chopped

2 dozens live Manila clams, scrubbed well

2 cups beer

3 tablespoons butter

1 bunch cilantro

Salt and pepper to taste

Here’s how:

Fry bacon in a medium pot for about 3 minutes. Add the onion and garlic and continue cooking until the onion becomes translucent.

Stir in the clams along with the beer and bay leaves. Scrape bottom as you stir to get more flavor. Cover the pot and steam the clams for 5 to 10 minutes, until they open. Discard clams that remain closed.

Add butter and cilantro. Season with salt and pepper if needed. Stir gently then serve.

For our family, Monday is not just an ordinary day. Though it means the beginning for another week-long of work and play, it is also the very day when our family is gathered together every week for our Family Home Evening. It is a family activity whom we have come to get accustomed with. This is where prayers are said, counsels are made, scripture reading is mastered and the most exciting part of all is the refreshment where my mother would let us guess what she will serve at the end of the program.

This easy time-friendly recipe is very much a Filipino dish with the presence of bagoong.  The cooking time of this dish is dependent on the size of the pork cubes - cut them smaller if you're pressed for minutes. If you're not into creamy stews, skip the coconut cream. A very flexible dish that can be cooked even without some of the ingredients but the taste has never been dependent in one missing ingredient. Try this and you will be surprised how you can turn everything just right. Even the cook will go nuts with its surprise! 


You will need:

1 kilo pork belly (liempo), cubed

2 tablespoons corn oil

6 cloves garlic, chopped

1 white onion, minced

5 small tomatoes, chopped

1/2 cup shrimp paste (bagoong)

3 tablespoons vinegar

1 1/2 teaspoons sugar

salt and black pepper to taste

3 eggplants, sliced diagonally

1/2 cup coconut cream

Here's how:

Place cubed liempo in a stockpot. Cover with water and let boil for at least 15 minutes. Prepare the rest of the ingredients while meat is cooking.

Pour corn oil into a hot pan. Saute' garlic and onions until softened. Add tomatoes and cook until softened too. Stir-fry bagoong until aromatic then put in boiled pork pieces and 1/2 cup of the boiling water used to cook the pork. Simmer until pork softens, then add vinegar and sugar and season with salt and pepper to taste. Add more pork broth if necessary.

When meat and vegetables are being served, with just one wink of an eye, the meat's gone. Too often, the young ones prefer meat than vegetables and this made mother's reinvent the usual individually served menu by combining dishes or even adding ingredients, making it more appealing to the eyes  of the little ones and more tasteful to their selective taste buds.

It is always good to start your day with a simple nutritious breakfast but too often because of the tight schedules, one can hardly cook a single dish just to catch up with time. I shared this same dilemma almost everyday. The easiest thing for me to do is to keep my leftover rice that evening so I would only have sinangag the following day and never hurry so much for my cooking since I would just make a simple sinangag paired with fried egg and my morning's done.
