Beef Misono with stir-fried vegetables

Good drink... Good meat... Good God... Let's eat! ~Dan Castellaneta (Homer Simpson)

Whenever my husband and I go to Tokyo Tokyo, we never fail to order the legendary Beef Misono. We are addicted to the garlicky and buttery taste of the beef and when it is paired with the stir-fried veggies, oh the taste is divine! 

We didn't have the time to go to the mall and just to satisfy my cravings I decided to cook my own version of Beef Misono with stir-fried vegetables.

Cheesy Talk - Homemade Ricotta

"Enjoy change! Savor the adventure and enjoy the taste of new cheese!" 
- excerpt from "Who Moved My Cheese"

Since my husband is a big fan of cheese, I always wonder how to make one. But I get discouraged every time I tried doing it. I'm intimidated with the ingredients I haven't heard once! And I'm talking about Rennet and the cultures. Where can I find it? In supermarket, drugstore, meatshop???

Comfort of Rain... Ginataang Halo-halo

"To enjoy the rainbow, first enjoy the rain". - Paolo Coelho

 I love rain! I love the "moment" it gives... I think rain makes you connect with your emotional side. It gives you deeper thoughts on everything. Some people say rain makes them depressed and blue but for me it is the opposite of what they feel. I am happy and alive.

Since it is raining all day long, I am craving for something sweet. I want something that brings back memories. Besides the all time favorite "champorado and tuyo", another comfort food that my mom used to make during the rainy days is the Ginataang halo-halo. Ginataang halo-halo(1) is a very versatile Filipino food. It can be served on breakfast, snack (merienda), or as a dessert.
