Filipino Lumpia

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2008
VARIATION: Instead of shredded cabbage, use French cut green beans (thawed and dried, not canned). Add chopped up water chestnuts for texture if you like that crunch. Peanut oil is the best for frying this, I think. Also, the prep time wasn't as long for me... (?) Not sure why.

Pork and Chicken Adobo

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2008
I gave this a 3 Star cuz I haven't actually tried making it this way, but just reading that soy sauce is optional... well, I'll have to agree with the other Filifolks in here. Soy sauce is a MUST. Oh, also my Chinese grandmother used to throw in hard-boiled quail eggs in the broth/sauce. Or regular hard-boiled chicken eggs when she ran out of money to get the expensive quail eggs. You can tell your non-Filipino friends, "OMFG, my chicken adobo laid some eggs!!!" Oh, plus, PLUS!!! Try adding some coconut milk in there. Mmmm, good!

Chicken Afritada

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2008
I don't use oyster sauce, ginger, or garlic at all in this. Also, I put sliced carrots and chick peas instead of baby peas. I add sliced hotdogs in it as well (how ethnic, ¿no?) And sliced green peppers and a small jar of diced pimentos go well together. Someone told me to add milk in it one time, and I was like "ewww gross, no thanks".

Moussaka

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2008
Loved it! Made a few changes to make it "lower carb". Used heavy cream instead of milk, and used a low carb bake mix instead of flour. I did, however, add potatoes for the bottom layer, but cut really thinly; I only used 1.5 med potatoes. I love Greek food. Thanks for this recipe.
