Champorado (Chocolate Rice Porridge)

"Food, like a love touch or a glimpse of divine power, has that ability to comfort." ~Norman Kolpas

It's raining and all I want to do is cook our comfort foods. I made arroz caldo (rice porridge with chicken and egg) for me and mom, nilupak for my hubby, and of course, my son's all-time-favourite - champorado! Wow, I made all of these the entire morning.

How to cook rice on stove

"Without rice, even the cleverest housewife cannot cook" ~ Chinese Proverbs

I grew up cooking rice on stove, we didn't have rice cooker when I was young. It was during my high school days when we had our first rice cooker, but the funny thing is we only use it for special occasions.

Tinolang Manok (Chicken and ginger consommé)

A Jewish woman had two chickens. One got sick, so the woman made chicken soup out of the other one to help the sick one get well. ~ Henny Youngman

They say chicken soup is good for the soul. Well, in my case it's not only good for the soul but for colds too! The hot steam of tinola(1) together with the spicy aroma of fresh ginger clears my stuffy nose. The chicken is sooo crazy moist and the vegetables are just perfect for the chicken.
