Piaya, a Filipino flatbread originating from the province of Negros. It is a unleavened flatbread stuffed with muscovado sugar, flattened and sprinkled with sesame seeds. I'm not a fan of this Filipino pasalubong as the bread itself is bland but the filling is too sweet. However, when I tried this recipe, I totally fell in love with it and I did it twice in two consecutive days.

The night before my friend's wedding, we ate this chicken barbecue from Aristocrat's and I quickly fell in love with it. It's juicy, sweet and savory. The dish is priced at Php200.00++ something and comes in three pieces cued on a stick and served with java rice and atchara or pickled green papaya. Though the priced is that of a whole chicken, the dish is so worth it.

It's a cloudy afternoon and you could actually feel the cold breeze of the wind. The cold weather of Christmas is still lingering today. I just hope the weather stays the same, I bet you also wish that. So what's nice with this cold weather? A hot cup of freshly prepared hot coco.

My father is Ilonggo but we never set foot in Iloilo in our entire lives, except my dad. My dad usually cooked Ilonggo dishes like batchoy, KBL (kadios, baboy and langka) and the grilled pork legs in monggo soup. I love the latter of all his recipe. The pork legs or pata is chopped and grilled in live charcoal and then it is boiled with monggo beans until fork tender. I love the smoky flavor added by the grilled pork legs in the regular monggo soup. However, La Paz Batchoy is the dish he never cooked at home.
I love cheesecake and I love brownies. Well, I love anything sweet, but these two are heaven. Why not combine them and I bet it taste delicious. Cheesecake brownies is a divine dessert and hands down to the inventor of this dessert. Cheesecake brownies is a well balance dessert. It has the chocolaty sweetness of the brownies plus the creamy salty flavor of the cheesecake exploding in harmony.

If you are a regular reader of my blog, you would have noticed that I have been doing oven baked pork ribs several times. This is in search of the perfect baked pork ribs recipe that I would really enjoy eating. I have already tried a pork ribs restaurant that have lots of good reviews. However, when I tried their ribs, it taste like a regular barbecue sold on the street with only the addition of sweet thick sauce on the side. The ribs is dry and served cold. Even my friend commented that it's not how she remembered it. Anyway, I just thought that maybe they are having a bad day that time. Maybe I'll try it again next time.
