Bibingka: My fave rice cake

From a previous post. Check it http://www.yamikitchen.com/bibingkinitan/

Magpapasko na naman. Naaamoy niyo na ba ang mga pagkaing mabili tuwing sasapit ang Pasko? Dito sa amin wala pa akong nakikitang nagbebenta ng bibingka. Kung tutuusin available na ito kahit anong panahon nagiging mabili lang tuwing Christmas season. Saan kaya makakabili ng pinakamasarap na bibingka dito sa Quezon City? May alam ba kayo kung saan? 🙂

Food on a rainy day

My Tinolang Manok sa Luyang Dilaw (Chicken Ginger Stew), a comfort food on a rainy day.

Rainy season allows us to cozily stay indoors and relax for a bit. You can also satisfy your cravings by preparing a delicious meal that will favor the cold weather. You should know foods that are very simple and easy to serve like a classic macaroni and cheese that will truly comfort you. Soup is famous in this season as it brings warmth and delight like tomato soup with grilled cheese sandwich and French onion soup. You can also rely on stews and casserole like tuna noodle casserole and hearty stew. Pasta is also one of the easiest meals to prepare so consider them in your lists of rainy days meals.

Pansit Miki Guisado

What did you get your Mom for Mother’s Day? A cake, a bouquet of flowers, or the latest brand of cell phones? Or did you treat your mom to a sumptuous meal in her favorite restaurant.

When I was young, it was my mother who treats us during Mother’s Day. She would cook Pansit Miki or spaghetti and banana cake for the occasion (and for other special family gatherings that require her cooking expertise).

Here’s my simple version of Pansit Miki :

Ingredients:

Miki noodles
Diced tofu
Chopped cabbage
Julienned carrots
Chopped spring Onion
Pepper, Salt
Water

Procedure:

Saute garlic and onion, add in diced tofu. Add ½ cup water and seasoning (salt, pepper), bring to a boil. Add in carrots, miki noodles and chopped cabbage. Stir. Simmer for a few minutes and serve. You can add strips of chicken or diced pork or shrimp. You can pair pansit with fried fish, chicken or pork dish.
