Piniritong Lumpiang Gulay

Ever since I can remember, in our house, we normally have lumpiang gulay the day after we have lumpiang hubad for lunch. Lumpiang hubad (naked springroll) is just your lumpia filling (sauteed vegetables really) plain and simple. So the next day, all that needs to be done is to roll up the leftover filling in lumpia wrappers.

Softdrink Replacement

I've heard about the lemon detox and all the buzz around it. How it helps you lose weight. How it makes your skin glow. How it boosts your immunity and metabolism. All the good stuff. Not to be confused with a diet, the lemon detox is really more of a cleanse I guess, a way to kick-start your actual diet. Whatever the lemon detox is, I was sold on it. Partially. Partially sold on it. See, I am not a big diet person or one to fast (Have you seen the stuff I eat?) but somehow drinking a lot of lemon juice appeals to me. I love lemons. When life give you lemons, I say let it.

Fat and Happy at Banzai!

Banzai is a Japanese-themed buffet at the By the Bay area of SM Mall of Asia. It's located, rather relevantly if I may say so myself, in between two other famous all-you-can-eat buffet restaurants, La Fiesta and Buffet 101.

A new kebob restaurant opened up in BF Paranaque called Mezze & Kebobs, satisfying my all too recent craving for seriously good kebobs. Owned in part by the people behind Don Limone Grill, M&K is serving up delicious middle eastern fare.

Kalamay Pinipig

Home-made Kalamay Pinipig
Got this recipe from Ate Miniang. She comes to the house once a week to help around in the house. She is an awesome cook and I enjoy pestering her for recipes when she's around. This week she found a bag of green pinipig in the ref. I got it from Mahogany Market a couple of weeks ago thinking I'd make pichi-pichi out of it but somehow forgot about it. When Ate Minyang found it, my "fresh" green pinipig had dried out and was no longer good for pich-pichi. So, bless her heart, she made kalamay pinipig.

Spring Cleaning

It's January once again. Just a couple of weeks into the new year and I can still remember the fireworks ringing in my ears. And how can I not remember those bacchanalian feasts? Fortunately(?), those days are over and the passing of January days allows us a chance to think about other things.
