Tuyo Flakes Pasta (Spaghetti Aglio e Olio in Tuyo Flakes) Recipe

Tuyo Flakes Pasta (Spaghetti Aglio e Olio in Tuyo Flakes) Recipe
I was curious when a friend of mine was selling her Tuyo Flakes in Olive oil over facebook. I bought a jar since it’s not that expensive. 180 pesos a jar? Not bad right? I’ve been fond of experimenting on pasta in garlic and olive oil for months now but this time with tomatoes and Tuyo Flakes (salted dried herring). Well, it went well so far. Since tuyo is already salty, I didn’t add any salt to this recipe, just pepper to taste. It is very easy to adjust the saltiness of this recipe just by adding grated Parmesan or cheddar cheese. Now here’s the recipe Tuyo Flakes Pasta...

Pan Fried Chicken and Gravy ala Pancake House

Pan Fried Chicken and Gravy ala Pancake House
I was craving for Pancake House Pan Fried Chicken one time and there were no Pancake House near my home and aside from that, I was tight on the budget. So to satisfy my cravings for Pan Fried Chicken, I really have to search over the Internet thinking if I could get a recipe instead. And I found one, but I was unsure if it would really taste like Pancake House’s chicken, so I decided to try it. The recipe I found required overnight marination.

Iloilo’s Dinagyang Festival 2016 Schedule
Iloilo’s Dinagyang festival is one of the most awaited events here in the Philippines. The last time I was there to attend Dinagyang was January 2011 and I can’t wait to go back there again to watch and experience the festival.

Ilustrado’s New Year Food Idea for Media Noche & Family Reunion
Here in the Philippines, one of the most celebrated date aside from Christmas is New year and yes… majority of us celebrate Family Reunions during this day, too.

No Time To Cook Noche Buena? Then Consider These Christmas Offerings

No Time To Cook Noche Buena? Then Consider These Christmas Offerings
In today’s times, both parents have jobs or run a business to earn and meet their family’s needs. This causes a disadvantage of having less quality time with your loved ones, especially during the holidays. Personally, I see it as not having “Time” and “Space” at home. Time? Yes, there are solutions especially during holidays. For example, people nowadays tend to do online gift shopping instead of going to the malls, at least naka-save sila ng time, effort, and energy. All they have to do is click and click, pay, and wait at their doorstep for the delivery. But how...
