About this Cook
Whatever my mood, cravings, inspiration, and goal is...that's what I would cook. You can find me on Instagram at sugarplum0212. *~~~~ RIP to my beloved basset hound 5/12/07 - 8/17/12 ~~~~*
My favorite things to cook
I love introducing various cuisines for my family such as German, Hungarian, Filipino, Italian, Middle-Eastern, Latin, Asian, etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Lumpia's and shanghai's is a must on every event/holiday. It is usually made by my mom and grandma. Recently, my side of the family request for my bibingka cassava cake or my chewy bibingka (almost like mochi).
My cooking triumphs
My time consuming "Shrimp Lumpia"; I've also had success making my husband's childhood favorite main dish which is "Kase Knephla" aka cheese buttons. It's basically a large German ravioli. His grandmother (moms side) used to make those for him.
My cooking tragedies
When I cooked Thanksgiving for the first time (just the 3 of us). I was so thrilled about my walnut streusel apple pie being assembled. It was so pretty until I dropped it! Boooo!

Spanish Potato Omelet
I really loved it....simple and delicious. Although it's a very greasy dish but a treat won't hurt once in a while. I used season-all and pepper for the potatoes and s&p for the eggs.

Chicken Scarpariello
We loved it! Kept all measurements the same but used italian seasonings instead of rosemary and also added a squirt if lemon.

Pork Carnitas
I've made a few carnitas recipes from here an they were all equally good but these were by far the best. I think I used 4-5 cups of water and 1 cubed buillion; covered and simmered for one hour, uncover, and continue simmering until reduced and pork is half way tender. I then roughly chopped them up and sautéed in a pan with a little vegetable oil and poured some broth....super!!! I think these would be super yummy as a stew with potatoes and peas.
