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 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”.
Holy guacamole, this is a super easy recipe! Yeah, okay. That was pretty lame. But you know what’s NOT lame? Fresh guacamole!
I like to cook whatever is on sale, especially vegetables. At the peak of the season you will get the best tasting and the best deal for produce. If you can score avocados for less than $1, then that’s a heck of a deal!
A few days ago, I was challenged to make a vegan recipe. While I could come up with vegetarian recipes, making a completely vegan meal was something I’ve never done before.
