Saucy Pancit Canton
Sep 12th, 2012 by niceyfemme

I have finally reached that phase where I can’t stop myself from eating. I wasn’t like this in the previous months, just now. And when I want to eat something, I really have to have it. Lately that’s pancit canton for me, the saucy kind. Could have been more perfect if I can have it with chicken liver but no I still can’t eat liver. Bummer.

I have gained too much these past weeks tsk tsk. I can’t wait until we can all see Baby J. And maybe I can feel like myself again. The acme thread observer type of person that I am. Yeah such a weirdo. 🙂

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. 🙂

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! Just good old fashioned meaty beef goodness. 🙂 From the first batch.

Photo Update: Episode 1
Dec 7th, 2011 by niceyfemme

My healthy but very filling plate of pan grilled chicken, steamed buttered veggies and pancit with lots of veggies. Yum.

Been craving for nasi lemak real bad. One day I saw a local food stall franchise in SM offering the rice of nasi lemak (I tried making it myself but it’s not the same hmmmn) so I bought it and bought a fried chicken wing and good thing I still have the chili of nasi lemak in the fridge and with cucumber pa! So here it is. Nowhere near as good as the real nasi lemak but I have to give it to myself for at least trying haha.

How To Make Homemade Yogurt
Aug 23rd, 2011 by niceyfemme

This experiment started in Youtube. I was watching how factories make loaf breads and frozen pizzas then I came across yogurt making.

I love yogurt. I really love yogurt. Started when I was all about healthy stuff, choosing healthier alternatives to the usual bad stuff like ice cream and it grew on me really well. Now I prefer some tartness than the all out sweetness of ice cream.

In Youtube I saw that they  use the oven to incubate (you need to incubate the good live bacterias to make yogurt) and I don’t like that because Philippines has power rates higher than Singapore grrr! So I thought why not make it using the slow cooker? I researched about it and yes many people have done it using the slow cooker. So I read some more and I planned about buying some milk and some plain yogurt to start my experiment. I want to go all out with yogurt. I can’t do that with Nestle’s Melon flavored yogurt with Nata de Coco which is my favorite. So expensive! It costs half a liter of milk for a very small container.

Best Pizza
Aug 10th, 2011 by niceyfemme

I have baked so far. What do I look for my pizza? First is the crust. I want it not too thick and not too thin. I need it to be a bit chewy but is crunchy as well. Then for the toppings I I prefer more veggies and cheese than meat.

After trying way too many recipes online, I finally have a recipe I could depend on. Thanks to Mommy who bought an old issue of a local food magazine where there was a promising and very simple recipe for pizza crust. Not many ingredients, just flour, salt, yeasts, water and oil. That’s it.

Oven Toaster Pizza Baguette
May 30th, 2011 by niceyfemme

Maybe I am a cheapskate; for things or food I know I can make myself. Like pizza. I know it’s just some flour and yeasts, and whatever toppings you like, veggies like bell peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms and pineapples. I like some ham and pepperonis in there too. Or maybe I’m just way too much of a control freak, even with my pizza.

The idea to use baguette is something I got from Delifrance. I love their pizzas in half baguette. (Ooh, I also love their Chicken Mushroom Linguine which is something I’m trying to replicate at home with no success.) Unfortunately, Delifrance has closed down already as far as I know. I’m not sure since when since I’m not in the Philippines most of the time but I am sure missing them. So again, in my oven toaster food series, I made my semi-homemade pizza using baguette.

Toaster Oven Cookies
May 27th, 2011 by niceyfemme

My love for cooking and baking started early. I don’t really remember how young I was but I remember to being so interested to peel potatoes and cut them in perfect squares. Then I would find a chair and watch my mom and my nanay saute garlic and onions. I would be in awe with every graceful movement of their sandok (ladle). I would then ask them what to do next. Then I started cooking instant noodles and fry fish balls and fries. My kitchen experiments came a bit later. When I’m alone in the house and I saw something interesting in the television, I’d try to do them myself.

Crunchy and yet chewy. Just like how I prefer my cookies.

Baking was more of a challenge for me. Why? Because we didn’t have an oven then. Also, baking equipments and tools are much more expensive. I remember always getting frustrated when I wanted to bake a cake but we don’t have an oven. Now that we have the basic things needed, I can now bake to my heart’s delight. (I try to neglect the electric bill though, the guilt it gives me.) That is if I’m at home in Philippines. In Singapore, we don’t have an oven. So when I need to have my dose of kneading of dough, I just make chapati.

My Pancit Malabon
Jun 11th, 2010 by niceyfemme

Last week I went to Mommy’s office to pay a visit and also to drive her around. 🙂 It’s nice seeing Ate Janet again, Sir Neal, Kuya Jeg, Geraldyn, Kuya Boy and everyone. This visit reminded me once again that I cannot work in an office environment. Fluorescent lights make me sleepy like crazy.

We had our breakfast there as we were in a rush to reach office before we get stuck in traffic. So I had tortang talong and rice fish and garlic fried rice. With coffee. I also ordered suman. That’s for later heheh…

Then come lunch time Mommy asked me what I wanted for lunch. I didn’t know what I want, we looked around what’s available but I just can’t choose so I decided not to eat. I’ve been craving for Amber’s Pancit Malabon. They have a branch in Makati but it’s a short drive from where the office is. I can’t leave because I don’t want to lose my parking space. Haha it’s so hard to have one there so I’d rather not go. Delivery has minimum purchase required and I only want a single order of Pancit Malabon so….

For days I’ve been craving for Pancit Malabon.  There’s a branch of Pancit Malabon Express in Bacoor, in Niog across Jollibee but I’m too lazy to go there. I have tried it there and they’re good. So I decided to just cook it myself. I have cooked this a decade ago. One of those experiments I had in my cooking-crazy phase. We even had it for Media Noche haha.

Homemade Mini Pizza’s for Breakfast
Apr 17th, 2010 by niceyfemme

Yes please! I know most people will not say no to pizza especially if it’s a homemade, freshly baked pizza. This have sweet ham, salad tomatoes, green capsicum, pineapple chunks,  and mozzarella cheese. I used some dried italian herbs sprinkled too.

I’m not really craving for pizza, specially not in the morning but I’m anxious about something (work related) that’s why I’m baking pizzas from scratch for a few days now. I’m trying to keep my mind occupied so I don’t have the opportunity to think about what’s bothering me. Oh and this mini pizza’s crust is not made from scratch though– since it’s really early hehe… But the sauce and toppings and everything I prepared myself. Yummy! I will post photos of my made from scratch pizzas soon.
