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”.
