Pregnancy Craving: Sinigang na Baboy
Jul 25th, 2012 by niceyfemme

I feel like I’m naglilihi again. Certain cravings and aversions towards food I felt during my first trimester but that was much worse because I was always hungry but can’t eat. Just thinking about that phase of my pregnancy makes me a bit nervous as that was really difficult for me. Now I can eat… just very picky. It’s hard to find contentment in the food I eat. The usual favorites has let me down so many times. But sinigang na baboy has been good on me. That when I don’t know what to eat, I’ll have this. I have made a post about this dish before, the more complete Sinigang na Baboy year 2011. πŸ™‚

No need to have all the ingredients, just the pork belly, taro root or gabi and kangkong or swamp cabbage and I’m happy na. Or maybe this is an act of desperation. πŸ™‚

Sinigang for 2 pax.

I was forbidden to eat those veggies with too many seeds as that will worsen my fingers and joints pain. I know I should be eating Salmon Sinigang instead and I used to love that dish, but I just can’t stand the taste of salmon since I got pregnant. Read the rest of this entry »

Unbaked Baked Macaroni
Jul 22nd, 2012 by niceyfemme

I can’t find my words recently. To be honest I don’t know what to call this dish. This is just like Filipino Spaghetti only I used macaroni instead of spaghetti. I was going to bake it but was too hungry to I just went ahead and ate it as is. We Filipinos immediately think of Baked Macaroni when we see macaroni shells in red sauce hence the title I gave this dish slash post.

With toasted garlic bread. Way too much butter but I like to indulge in this stage of my pregnancy. Haha i’m using the pregnancy excuse I should be ashamed… πŸ˜‰ But really cut me some slack people (yes I am talking to myself) this pregnancy caught me off guard in a way that I didn’t expect it to be so hard for me. So indulging is good.. it keeps me sane. πŸ™‚

And with a dish as good as this, we women will not need to be stunningly pretty, we will look gorgeous to the people whom we served this to and will smell good to them like we have pink sugar perfume on even though in reality we smell like roasted garlic haha.

Homemade Filipino Burger
Jun 3rd, 2012 by niceyfemme

Most burgers nowadays are just so disappointing and I can’t help but feel scared for my baby’s health and feel cheated as the burger usually isn’t worth my money. So I decided to make my own. I thought, “How hard could it be?”. And I also want to use my meat grinder. πŸ™‚

This is the second batch on the same day. Shows how much I like it.

Reminds me of Jollibee’s Burger Champ. To be honest and bias aside, I believe this taste even better!Β Just good old fashioned meaty beef goodness. πŸ™‚ From the first batch.

Filipino Accent Tutorial

This guy made me laugh! He’s Michael Bustos and I found this video in Facebook when my cousin JR shared this.

Kind of true though. I still hear some old folks speak this way. You gotta love being a Filipino. πŸ™‚
