Hi! I know it’s been a while since my last post, but I’ve been keeping busy with lots of other stuff. Recently, I’ve been encouraged by some buddies to post recipes for some of the food I’ve been cooking, even if the photos were only taken with my phone. So now, here it is! Growing […]

Garlicky Hummus

16, Jul 2010

We love hummus! Our favorite kind to get is Asmar’s Extra Garlic Hommus which is a local brand here in the D.C. area. I always read the ingredients when we buy most anything and I noticed that hummus didn’t have that many so I thought I’d try making hummus at home & here is what […]

Green Smoothie #1

8, Jul 2010

When I went to visit the Philippines a couple of months ago, I was introduced to breakfast smoothies by our fabulous Subic Bay hosts Corey & Mona. They used romaine lettuce, spinach or kale & whatever fruit they had at hand. I’ve been hooked since!  So (almost) everyday, O & I have smoothies for breakfast. […]

No, not Creedence Clearwater Revival but Ms. Julie Yoder‘s yummy dish called “Cashew, Chick Pea, Rice”. I had the pleasure of tasting this dish at last Saturday’s Girls Rock! D.C. volunteer orientation. It’s super easy to make yet very satisfying. [ Ingredients ] – 3 cups cooked brown rice (J. Yo’s dish calls for 2 […]

Happy new year! I’ve been craving my family’s chicken adobo but since O doesn’t eat meat, I thought I’d use the same ingredients but with tofu instead of chicken & voila! By the way, the cauliflower I used in this photo came from the farmers market. It looks a bit more yellow/orange but tastes the […]

I got this recipe from my friend Dave (Happy Birthday!). He got the recipe from here except he adds chocolates & nuts to his version so I modified the recipe to how we make it at home. I made it a couple of times with chocolate soy milk & that was really yummy too. [ Ingredients […]

We didn’t have much in the fridge except for almost wilted salad greens & green beans that day, neither of which I wanted to go to waste so I put together a cold pasta salad dish that came out really yummy. I didn’t get to measure any of this as I was just winging it. […]

Last week, O told me he wanted to eat more garlic. I was looking through the pantry and found the bag of pasta from Trader Joe’s and decided to make a simple and garlicky pasta dish for us. [ Ingredients ] – 1 bag of Trader Joe’s vegetable radiatore pasta – 1 bulb of medium […]

Got the idea from my friend Niki last year and finally made it myself.  I think it would’ve been better if had a mandoline to slice those potatoes thinner. [ Ingredients ] – 3 cups all-purpose flour – 1 1/2 teaspoons salt – 3/4 teaspoon sugar – 1 3/4 cups cold water – vegetable oil, for […]

Quick Panini

For my first post, I’d like to share something easy to make. [ Ingredients ] – Tofurkey deli slice (hickory smoked) – rice cheese slice (I can’t remember which one) – extra virgin olive oil – ciabatta bread – spinach – garlic – mushrooms (whatever you like to cook with) – salt & pepper [ […]
