I have collected three of the best recipes that a five-star chef can do. It is interesting coming from a chef when he said that he has more than one favorite kitchen ingredients and one of them is salt. Yes, this is the ingredient which is available in all kitchens but it's not given importance. Salt is very important, because it brings out a lot of different flavors, colors, and gives the last finishing touch to the food. So, if you decide to try this recipes today, don't forget to give it a different savor by adding salt to them all. Have a flavorful cooking.

I am not really a fan of malling and window shopping.

One day, they have done something that really lose my temper, we went back home and tried this creamy penne carbonara.  It really enliven our day and was able to enjoy the whole time preparing and savoring what we have prepared for ourselves.

A friend came up with her own home-style version of beef salpicao right after having it in a restaurant with her family. She's now proud to share her simple yet still impressive version that novice cooks can prepare for their families.

Back to the days of my childhood, papaya was not really my type of fruit to be eaten. Even if my mother would insist, I would never pick even a slice during a fruitful meal, no wonder I still dislike it as I aged. I suppose that my disagreement with this papaya will never end until a colleague treated me on her birthday a dinner at an all-chicken restaurant. I couldn't believe that atchara on my plate would make a big difference with my chicken barbecue. The soothing taste of this pickled unripe papaya never left my tongue since then. I was completely charmed by its taste that I always fill my shelves with this pickled papaya. I will now impart to you this very simple atchara recipe so that you too can learn to appreciate its appetite-boasting taste.

Strawberry Sandwich Surprise

By Juvy S. Iliwiliw

You've got lots of options with this sweet sandwich. Switch the strawberries and brie for poached pears and ricotta. Or forego the cheese and stuff the sandwich with bananas and Nutella, a classic combination. Sandwich moment for you would never be the same again once you try this sandwich surprise. It is definitely an addicting indulgence.

Pan Con Tomate, Jamon y Queso

By Juvy S. Iliwiliw

Take this sandwich up a notch, add another typical Spanish condiment-aioli (or garlic mayonnaise). You can make it from scratch or simply mix minced garlic  with store-bought mayo to your desired pungency.

Pinoy Panini

By Juvy S. Iliwiliw

I always love to munch roasted garlic especially if it is still sizzling hot until I discovered that it is good to be added with this pinoy panini recipe. Now I do not just roast garlic to enjoy it for munching but I would even roast much more for me to enjoy this recipe every now and then. If you don't use all the roasted garlic for this sandwich, store the extra in a jar, covered in oil, and use in a couple of days.

Smokey Ham and Cheese with Chutney

By Juvy S. Iliwiliw

For something that packs a stronger punch, try substituting the country ham with pepperoni or pepper salami; switch the Gonda with pecorino romano; go for arugula instead of watercress; and use Dijon or spicy English mustard instead of the chutney. There are plenty of things you can do with this sandwich and you will never fall short of what you expect in your sandwich. This is really superb and satisfying.
