Baby Corn, String Beans and Fish Tofu Dish




I cooked this dish so long ago but I kept delaying posting it. With the Thai New Year celebrations and my mom and cousin's arrival, I had a lot going on the past few weeks. Now that the long holiday is over, things are back to normal. First, let me share with you this quick and easy dish I cooked. Chop suey was what I had in mind so after stir-frying it, I added a thickened sauce to create something similar.

Songkran (Thai New Year Festival) at NIS


I attended NIS Songkran Celebration a couple weeks back. Songkran is the traditional Thai New Year. It is celebrated with water fights/splashing water over people.  The splashing water symbolizes the washing away of bad things.

Moringa ( Malunggay) Pancit Canton with Vermicelli


Noodles is a reliable dish for potlucks. When my mom learned about the potluck my family was hosting on the first Sabbath she's here, she decided to cook the noodles I brought back from my trip to Philippines last Christmas. Mom cooked this delicious Filipino noodle dish called pancit canton, also known as lo mein or chow mein.

Bibingka Mix (Rice Cake Mix)


When we went grocery shopping in Philippines last Christmas, my sister found this bibingka mix which only needed an egg, water and a tablespoon of melted butter to make. We so love bibingka so she bought one to try. Months past and the bibingka mix was long forgotten. Today, while my mom,  sister and cousins were playing scrabble, I was thinking of what to serve  for merienda (afternoon snack). I remembered the bibingka mix.

Girly Cake for Sandy


When a friend  saw Winnie the Pooh cake, she asked if I could make a similar  fondant covered cake for her daughter. Her birthday was a week later. I asked about her daughter's style and things she was fond of. The mother said she liked all things girly.  That night,  I browsed the  gallery to get an idea for girly stuff and this was what I came up with.

Winnie The Pooh Cake

 
Jullian, the son of a church mate turned 2. He fancies Winnie the Pooh so his mom asked me to make a Winnie the Pooh cake.  When I showed up at the kindergarten class on Saturday,  every one  went gaga over it. Kids couldn't take their eyes off of it.
