This is a recipe for Baked Tahong with Butter Cheese and Roasted Garlic. Compared to our previous baked tahong recipe, this version makes use of fried garlic. You can also call it roasted or toasted garlic, like what I did in the title.However, the proper term should be fried because it was fried in oil until […]

A Happy and Prosperous New Year to each and everyone. May this new year open new doors of opportunities and hope.
Before embracing the New Year, I tried to look back to see all the good things that happened on the past year. The year 2010 had been exciting and fruitful, especially to PanlasangPinoy.com
Never in my wildest dreams did I ever hoped for fame nor building a brand that everyone would instantly recognize – it just happened. The biggest break that I had on the past year was the opportunity that the folks in ABS-CBN global gave me, an interview on one of their most renowned and talked-about show: Adobo Nation. I owe this blessing to the good lord and to the kind-hearted head writer of Adobo Nation, Mr. Carlos “Mouse” Munoz. A very big thanks for the opportunity.
Panlasang Pinoy also made a name on the different Filipino News Papers circulating in the USA, Japan, Europe, and Australia wherein some of them dedicated a column for Panlasang Pinoy. Thank You for believeing in me.
As we face another year ahead of us, let us all be optimistic and continue to do what we always do best: Sharing our blessings and lending a hand to those in need. May this new year bring us more love, peace, hapiness, and prosperity.
Here is another interesting recipe submitted by Jannet Spengler of Heidelberg, Germany. If you can recall, she was the one who shared her Tortang Talong with Giniling recipe and here she is once more with another wonderful creation.
I enjoy reading your website and am always eager to try out your recipes. I already tried your Pandesal, Beef and Onions, Buttered Puto, Beef Mami, Max Style fried Chicken, Orange Chicken and the Ham and Spinach Omelet from Ate Flora in CA. Now, i thought to share another recipe with you and your fans. I don’t even have a name for it but i know that my whole family loves it. Maybe your fans will love it too.
Brownies or Chocolate Brownies refers to slices of flat baked dense chocolate cake. These are usually sliced in squares although some like it in bars.
Brownies come in several forms. What we have here are fudgy brownies with walnuts. Personally, I prefer fudgy or moist brownies over the dry ones because I can enjoy the taste right after the first bite. Also, I can eat this anywhere without having a dry feeling in my mouth.
The walnuts are added to provide extra flavor and texture. The taste of plain brownies tends to be ordinary after having it for a while; adding chopped walnuts makes the flavor rich and interesting. I understand that this ingredient is not readily available in some places. If in case you cannot grab some walnuts, try using pecans, peanuts, or cashews.

Tikoy or Nián gāo is a type of rice cake made from glutinous rice flour and considered as a centerpiece during Chinese New Year. This is also popularly known as Chinese New Year pudding.
The Philippines is once considered as the melting pot of Asia. People of different origins call it home – including the Chinese. Chinese customs, traditions, and good food were embraced by the Filipino’s and even make it a part of their own.
The legend behind the Tikoy tells about a Kitchen God that observes the behavior of each family for a year. It was said the Kitchen God goes back to heaven before the Chinese New Year to report the findings; a depressing report would mean a year of bad luck for the family. According to the legend, feeding sticky rice cake to the Kitchen God will make it difficult for him to say anything against the family – it will be difficult to speak when his mouth is full and the sticky rice cake will keep his mouth shut.
How do you want your Tikoy cooked? I like mine dipped in beaten egg and fried.
Happy Chinese New Year! Kung Hei Fat Choi!
This recipe was sent to us by Melissa Polito of Polomolok, South cotabato, Philippines.
This is the first time that we’ll feature an octopus recipe and I’m pretty much excited. By looking at the ingredients and procedure, this seems to be a quick and healthy one. Imagine a healthy recipe that only requires less than 10 minutes to cook, I can’t wait to try this.
Thank You Melissa!
Have you ever tried to butcher a whole dressed chicken? I remember the first time to butcher a whole chicken; it was confusing. Back then, I didn’t know where to start and I have no idea as to how many parts should I divide it into. I spent more than 30 minutes to complete the […]
I felt that I needed a quick bite as I drove home from work. Luckily, I was about to pass-by a Panda Express location and decided to grab a box for dinner. I got a 2 entrée plate consisting of Orange Chicken, Beijing Beef, and Chow Mein for sides.
Let’s not talk about Orange chicken and Chow Mein for now because my attention is focused solely on Beijing Beef. However, you might want to check our Orange Chicken recipe post if you want to know more about it. As for the Chow Mein, the closest recipe that we have is the Pancit Canton- which I think is a better alternative.
There isn’t really anything extra-ordinary about the Beijing Beef – but I still like to have it once in a while. The flavor is probably the main reason why I like it. I am a fan of sweet and sour pork and this dish is pretty much similar – that is if you raise it to the next level. You’ll understand what I’m trying to say once you try one. After the first bite, the tangy taste immediately permeates in your mouth leaving you speechless – looking forward to the next bite. Since the flavor is so rich, it is advisable to balance it by having some sides (such as rice or noodles) while munching. The texture is unique compared to the other Chinese beef dishes that I had, so far. It also has the consistency of a fried flank steak but tender when chewed.
Fried Rice is the result when steamed or boiled rice are fried in oil or animal fat. For practical reasons, the Chinese first used this method to preserve and recycle leftover steamed rice for consumption. Nowadays, several varieties of fried rice are enjoyed throughout the world.
Making fried rice seems simple and easy. When asked as to how this is done, you might say “heat some oil and fry the steamed rice then add the other ingredients that you have”. While this statement is true, there are more things to consider that may help you make the best possible outcome out of what you have.
