Rice, Very Labour Intensive Crop

My meal wouldn’t be complete without rice. That’s the way we ate when I grew up in the Philippines. Even though I have been living here in America for more than six years now, I still eat rice almost every meal.

Rice is very important in the Filipino culture. There are many different varieties of rice there in the Philippines. Many were pioneered or bred by the Philippine Rice Institute. When you go to a supermarket or wet-market you will find dozens of different types of rice for sale at greatly varying prices. Rice is also the main ingredient in …

Chicken Adobo

No automatic alt text available.

This native chicken adobo was one of the dishes that I was able to eat when I visited my family in the Philippines last year.

My mother cooked this for us for breakfast one day :-). She added soy sauce, onions, garlic and red chili pepper to the chicken. Adobo is a common recipe in the Philippines. Most people there know how to cook …

Sardines are not my favorite dish but yesterday I had been craving them :D. My hubby doesn’t like the kind of sardines that I like because of the tomato sauce in it. I bought a couple of cans of hot and spicy sardines a few weeks ago and stocked up the cupboards. One of the reasons that I bought sardines was to mix them with rice noodles.

That may sound yucky to most people here but to Filipino’s it’s a one of a kind dish. I remember the first time I cooked “bihon”, my husband really said it smelled really …
