Ginataang mais (pronounced GEE-nah-ta-ang MA-es) is a Filipino sweet corn dessert soup. I know this may not sound too appealing for people who haven’t tried it, but it’s one of my favorite desserts and it really brings back a lot of memories. It’s sweet enough for kids to enjoy, yet not too sweet that you couldn’t have multiple bowls in one day.
I never understood why there is such a stigma against brussel sprouts. Personally I think they taste like mild, little cabbages. By sauteing the brussel sprouts in a salty meat like bacon, prosciutto, or smoked sausage, the sprouts take on a wonderful flavor.
I was talking with a co-worker about a recipe I read in the local newspaper. The recipe was essentially green bean bundles wrapped with bacon. She mentioned that her kids loved the way she prepares green beans, which I learned later called “green beans almondine”.
This is a great way to make a dessert if you aren’t a great baker, like me. It’s super easy and simple, and the great thing is that people will think you made it from scratch!
Love garlic? Already baking something in the oven? Try this simple garlic spread recipe given to me by my foodie friend Jerald!
You can spread it on bread or add it any recipe like soups, sauces or stews for a strong roasted garlic flavor.
