With “Typhoon Henry” for the past 3 days I ended up spending time over at my sister’s place after visiting my mother. A days visit for her turned into 3 consecutive days & 2 nights due to the bad weather. I was really afraid and dreaded to drive back home alone knowing that the road I have to pass through will be flooded along Araneta Ave and I cannot take a chance. So, I followed my instinct and stayed put instead. And, sure enough I made the right decision.😊 This morning I had a strong feeling that the rain will be over and so, I whipped up another lunch meal for my sister Jessica’s family just before heading back home. “Ground Pork with Ampalaya, Minced Garlic and Tomatoes. But, I’ve also experimented and mixed in “Hi-Be” or Mini Salted Dried Shrimps to balance the bitter taste of the ampalaya. Marinated it with Oyster Sauce. Surprisingly, it turned out really well & delicious.💖 We ate it all.
My mother Corazon also have contributed by making “Spare Ribs Sinigang”. Super Yummy 😊 It was PERFECT!
Nothing else better than eating at home with the family right?🌝🤗💖Also, thanks to my other sis @jocelynchua65 for the wine 🍷 treat with spicy Salami’s and Cheese. 🧀 yesterday and Shabu Shabu dinner from Wilson and Jessica’s family. #thankyou#jennysgreenkitchen#eatathome#joyofcooking#ampalaya#groundpork#delicious#comfortfood#yummyfood#blessedfood#simplemeals
Snack, barchow or have it with rice or noodles, lumpiang shanghai packs a punch in taste and texture.
Lumpiang shanghai is made with ground pork (sometimes ground chicken if you’re into white meat instead) mixed with bits of carrots, green onions, eggs, pepper, salt and garlic powder wrapped in spring roll wrapper and deep fried til the meat is cooked and wrapper crisp. Usually, it’s served with sweet and sour sauce or the ever present banana ketchup on the side for dipping.
Look forward to sauces in the Chibundles which you can use as dip for lumpiang shanghai!
This is @chinamommyph’s version of Taiwanese Lor Bak Png (Lu Rou Fan 滷肉飯). Instead of fatty pork belly “mommy” used lean pork and it doesn’t have sauce. The pork was extremely aromatic from the abundant fried shallots. I guarantee you will eat a lot of rice with it. This is actually very economical to order for a potluck. You won’t need much meat to get full fast 😆.
As a professional magician, frequently I will “magically” change one item, seemingly impossibly (assuming I’m doing my job properly 😏), into another item—known within the field as a transformation. Although magic is my vocation, cooking is my avocation—a place where I likewise attempt (attempt being the operative word) to create “magic”, in this case, in the kitchen.
In magic I’ve had many performers who have inspired me to become who I am today. Likewise, with cooking, I e had many who have inspired me, and continue to inspire me, like: @guarnaschelli, @conantnyc, @gzchef, @chefmarcmurphy, @bobbyflay, @altonbrown, @chef_lynn, and @chefmichaelsmith. I LOVE watching them do what they do. To me, they are true Kitchen Magicians, individuals that inspire me to try. And not just try, but to do...and to be better. To do better. To risk. To take chances.
Tonight’s little bit of magic that I’m attempting is transforming onion, garlic, carrot, celery, sweet green pepper, ground pork, ground beef, Italian sausage, tomatoes, various herbs, spices, and cooking wine into a spaghetti sauce. No magic words needed like Hocus Pocus, or Alakazam, just: Bon appétit.
BREAKFAST • PIZZA • Since starting this anti-inflammatory-ish diet a few weeks ago I found that it can be very limiting and there are so many omelette or hard boiled eggs a gal can eat. So I came up with this version of a breakfast pizza. It has veggies and cheese and cream cheese (you think it sounds weird, but it adds a nice creaminess). You can add whatever veggies you have in your fridge...I’m sure anything will work!.
• Cauliflower crust by @califlourfoods (or traditional crust) • Ground pork (optional - I had made some pork so I wanted to use it up) • 2 eggs • 1/2 avocado • 2 Mini peppers • 1 Jalapeño • 1 ounce @lovemyphilly cream cheese • 1 slice of American cheese (or whatever cheese you have)
1. Partially cook crust (follow package instructions)
2. While crust in the oven scramble 2 eggs. You will want to cook them eggs very medium heat for like 2 minutes. You want them just cooked. They will continue to cook in the oven.
3. Top crust with ground pork, eggs, cream cheese, cheese, veggies and jalapeño.
4. Place in oven until everything is heated trough and cheese is melted.
5. Take out of oven and top with half an avocado. Season with salt and pepper. Enjoy!.

EGG • IN • a • CAP • We’ve all heard of egg-in-a-hole, but egg in a cap?! Well good thing I’m here to tell you what that is! So basically you take a portobello mushroom top and add an egg on top! 🍳 🍄 I added the ground pork I made the other day (gotta use it up) and a slice of cheese to make it a more filling breakfast..
• Portobello mushroom, stem and the gills removed
• Ground pork (optional)
• Cheese (optional) I used a slice of organic American cheese, but you can use any kind of cheese
• Red pepper flakes
• Garlic powder
Preheat broiler, setting temperature to high. Set oven rack in the middle of the oven. Line a baking sheet with foil. Spray the mushroom cap with olive oil cooking spray on both sides. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Broil 5 minutes on each side, or until just tender. Remove mushrooms from oven. Drain any liquids. Switch oven from broil to bake, setting temperature to 400 degrees F. Put ground pork, and slice of cheese and push down in the middle so there is space for the egg to sit in. Crack the egg in the center and season with salt, pepper and red pepper flakes. Cook for about 15 minutes until the egg white sets. Shovel in mouth! You can also add chopped parsley on top, I didn’t have any..
