Puto Binan

It took me about more than a decade to taste an authentic Puto Binan again. The first time i've fallen in love with puto Binan was when I was still working as a Junior Market Research Assistant and that was really a long, long time ago. My research partner- Rose, hails from Binan so every now and then she brings this yummy puto to the office.

And after endless search, tasting the puto Binan sold in Greenhills tiangge, food stalls in the malls, the food stalls at St. Jude Parish and then being gifted with a big bilao of puto Binan.. all of which tasted different and doesn't lived up to the Puto Binan as I remembered. Then about a week ago, we happen to visit my cousin who manages a canteen in one of the top Call Center in Metro Manila and we were served puto Binan! At last--- yum yum yum!

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

RECIPE: TKG's Brownie Balls with Cointreau Infused Cranberries

We may still be quarantined inside our homes but that doesn't mean we have to let go of our love for food. And if there's something positive that happened in our new normal, I'd say that most people (including me) have discovered the simple joys of spending more time in the kitchen. Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.
