FATHER’S DAY BOOZY TREATS


DISHES, DESSERTS AND DRINKS

This is a treat to the first man in our lives. The pillar of strength and the head of the family. The constant voice in our heads to do well, to be excellent in our every endeavour. The one and only man we compare to every boy or man that comes our way. This is a tribute to all fathers in a daughter’s life.

To show you how much we care, we prepare an all-day feast from sun up to sun down. Father’s Day Boozy Treats : Dishes, Desserts, Drinks - while on the booze, perhaps you will somehow forget all those moments your blood boil because of us, your daughters. Those moments when you disapproved of our life’s choices. Those moments when you wanted something else for us but we wanted another. The petty arguments and what not... Because today, is your special day. No matter what, you will always be our first love. Happy Father’s Day!

PINOY FOOD RECIPE : CHICKEN SOPAS



The heat has been excruciating from the months of March to May. To utter the words sweating like a pig is an understatement (though I wonder, do pigs sweat?). For me, I am frantic at the thought of the coming rainy months.


You see in this part of the globe, the months from June to November have been tagged as the rainy season. It can be difficult to travel with a slippery road, the thought of strong typhoons that can cause floods is unnerving particularly after the detrimental typhoon - Haiyan (locally known as Yolanda) and the never-ending relief operations for typhoon stricken areas.


Looking on the brighter side of life, for a food lover, the rainy season only means that we can start preparing our favorite soup dishes and eat to our heart’s content.


This Pinoy Food Recipe is my family’s go-to soup dish. It can be a side dish for your dry meal or as a snack. Some locals even enjoy Chicken Sopas in the morning. Personally, what I love about this PINOY FOOD RECIPE : CHICKEN SOPAS is the addition of some vegetables. So let’s start to whip up this healthy and hearty soup dish.

RECIPE ROUND UP : MUST-TRY FILIPINO RECIPES



A COLLECTION OF PINOY RECIPES FROM FOOD BLOGGERS WORLDWIDE



The month of June is a historic time for the country once known as the Pearl of the Orient. June 12th marks the celebration of the Declaration of the Philippine Independence.


In recent years, the Philippine culinary industry has been joining the celebration with the commemoration of dishes served during the signing of the Declaration of Philippine Independence. Some establishments even introduced Dr. Jose Rizal’s favorite dishes to the younger generation. Dr. Jose Rizal is the country’s National Hero who pioneered the Philippine Revolution during the 400+ years of Spanish rule.


Here at Eat To Your Heart’s Content we are highlighting Filipino cuisine for the month of June. You might not be familiar with Pinoy food if you have not been to the Philippines. You may not have tasted Filipino food if you don’t know any Filipinos at all - which is unlikely to happen since so many Filipinos either migrated to another country or opted to work abroad). You might not have heard about Filipino dishes if you don’t watch Anthony Bourdain (who visited the country twice) and from Andrew Zimmern who predicted that Filipino food is the next best thing – more on that here. You may have not encountered some iconic Filipino dishes but there are many worthy to be tasted with gusto.


So why don’t you relax, have a cup of your favorite brew and scroll down for some delicious versions of MUST-TRY FILIPINO RECIPES you can create for your family. Who knows, Filipino food might just be something you can rave about too. Here is a collection of Pinoy recipes from fellow Pinoy food bloggers and versions of Pinoy dishes from some food bloggers worldwide.

RECIPE ROUND UP : 50 PLUS TEMPTING THIRST-QUENCHER



CREATIVE BLENDS TO BEAT THE HEAT


The last couple of weeks have been extremely hot, almost unbearable. My weather app registers a 99°F as of this writing, which is about 38°C with a body heat index of 42°C according to the national weather station.


When I am at home, I could not help but take a shower for about four to five times a day and drink several liters of ice-cold water. I refrain myself from drinking carbonated drinks and instant iced tea. I opt to prepare healthier beverages for my family.


In my search to whip up some creative blends to beat the heat, I have requested some amazing food bloggers to share their delicious cold drinks in this RECIPE ROUND UP : 50 PLUS TEMPTING THIRST-QUENCHER. 

PINOY FOOD RECIPE : ARROZ ALA CUBANA


PINOY FOOD RECIPE ARROZ ALA CUBANA
 

I could hardly recall that I would bring a lunch box during elementary & high school. My folks would hand me my school money, enough to last a day. We have a school cafeteria with a snack bar and only one catering vendor so the food choices were limited.


Back then, I do not mind the few choices since the owner of the caterer vendor was not only pleasant and very accommodating to us but she had some delicious dishes which became my favorites.


One favorite was her creation of Arroz ala Cubana. I look forward to the combination of this simple yet filling dish since it consists of ground meat, sunny side up egg and fried bananas. It was such a comfort food at that time.


Over the years, Arroz ala Cubana was one of the simple dishes I would whip whenever I had these main ingredients. This would usually be when I make my Pinoy Sweet-Style Spaghetti.


Allow me to share with you this PINOY FOOD RECIPE : ARROZ ALA CUBANA with a few tweaks I made over the years. This recipe can be for one when you are hungry or for two for modest munching.
