Simple Palabok Recipe

This is my first attempt to prepare Palabok. I’ve got my inspiration from Chef Tatung’s Simpol palabok recipe on Youtube. Although I made some modifications like cooking the ground pork thoroughly before adding the sauce.

Ingredients:

Excellent Pancit Palabok Noodles

For the sauce:

(I don’t have specific measurement for the ingredients. Tantyahan na lang. 😀 )
cooking oil
chopped onion
chopped garlic
dried shrimp (hibi)
annatto oil/water (atsuete)
all-purpose flour
2 Knorr shrimp cube
1/4 kilo ground pork
fish sauce (patis)
ground black pepper

For topping:

These are the only available ingredients for toppings I have in the kitchen. You can add variety of seafood for toppings such as, shrimps, mussels, squid.

chicharon baboy crushed
fried garlic
spring onions
boiled eggs
fried tofu (tokwa)

Procedure:

Boil pancit palabok noodles for 12 minutes to 15 minutes.
Saute ground pork in garlic and onion. Add dried shrimp. Add atsuete water mixture. Let it simmer. Add flour. Mix thoroughly. Add shrimp cube. Simmer. Add fish sauce and black pepper to taste. Simmer for a few more minutes.

Arrange the boiled noodles in a plate. Pour the sauce on the noodles. Add in toppings. Enjoy!

We have this for dinner last night and for breakfast this morning. 🙂

3 Gourmet Cookies to Try

As far as treats and desserts go, you can never count out the popularity of a great cookie. An array of cookies already exists, and creative bakers find new ways to tweak existing recipes to create something more delicious and scrumptious. Just as wonderful are gourmet cookies atlanta, and if you live within a certain distance from a gourmet cookie shop, they can be delivered to your home or office, fresh.

Here are three gourmet cookies to consider trying.

Almond Tea Cakes

According to famous culinary expert Paula Deen, almond tea cakes have existed since Southerners have been around. These tea cake treats are great for pairing with tea or coffee after a wonderful lunch or during a mid-day break. The basic ingredients include all purpose flour, baking power and butter as well as eggs and sugar. Then, each baker can include some additional add-ons like almond extract and lemon zest.

Almond tea cakes are hearty enough that two will suffice. If you have a sweet tooth, you may desire more, of course.

Peanut Butter

You have your basic peanut butter cookie, and then, you have your gourmet peanut butter cookie. Gourmet peanut butter cookies include additional flavors like chocolate, fudge and chocolate chips. The inclusion of these flavors that complement peanut butter is a wonderful way to receive a satisfying taste of sweetness, and more, without needing to eat more than one cookie. If one cookie can deliver that much satisfaction to your dessert craving, it means you do not need to feel guilty, afterwards.

Gluten Free of the Day

Some bakeries do not sell enough gluten-free gourmet cookies to bake several types on a daily basis. They do, however, have enough customers that would like at least one gluten-free option each day. The daily variety of a gourmet gluten-free cookie of the day gives you the opportunity to try something new and not get bored.

The simplicity of cookies, even gourmet cookies, is great for your budget and taste buds. Gourmet cookies atlanta includes almond tea cakes, peanut butter as well as gluten-free.

Reunited with my old waffle maker

I have this waffle maker (model KW 2613) for more than five years now but I haven’t used it as often as I should. I organized and put away some of our stuff including a gibson robot sg toy and this waffle maker two years ago and forgot all about their existence. It was my son who reminded me about the waffle maker so I took it out of the cabinet, cleaned and used it last weekend… I think this waffle maker will be a regular fixture in the kitchen from now on.
