I love thick soups. The creamier, the better. This soup was inspired by this restaurant‘s version. I didn’t follow any recipe; I just trusted my imagination and my memory of the soup’s exact taste when I had a chance to try it. Fortunately, it turned out better than I expected when I cooked it last weekend. Sulit ang pagod ko!
Here’s the recipe based on how I remembered making it:

Cheese pimiento is one of my favorite spreads. I love pairing it with pandesal and sliced bread. I had been craving for it the past days so I prepared some the other night. By the way, I learned making this delicious spread from an aunt. When I first tried making it at home, it was a hit with the entire family. This time, the hubby liked it, too.
I’d like to think it’s the Pinoy version I made because it had a hint of sweetness. Haha. There’s no cooking involved here. You just mix everything up and voila, instant yumminess in a spread! (Sorry, I have to use the ‘Cooking with Edel’ title because I’m including this post in that category.)

Sauteed tomatoes with egg was one of my comfort food while growing up in the province of Nueva Ecija. It still is one of my comfort food today. While you can eat it as is, I normally pair this with fried fish (galunggong or GG is the best!) or pork. The more garlic, onions and fresh tomatoes in it, the better.
This is one easy peasy recipe that I’m sure you can whip up at home:

The hubby is a big pancake fan, and so are my mom and my FIL. I like pancakes, too, but not so much. If before, I would stock boxes of pancake mixes in our pantry to satisfy the hubby’s pancake cravings during weekends, now I just make pancakes from scratch.
I never thought making homemade pancakes was easy! It only requires a few ingredients and having a supply of them in your pantry means pancakes galore whenever you like. The hubby likes his pancakes with lotsa butter and maple syrup. I’m not a superwoman to produce homemade maple syrup so I just buy Clara Ole’s for less than P100 a bottle.

Have you planned your Christmas menu yet? As for me, it’s gonna be effortless because the hubby and I are having the traditional Noche Buena with my side of the family at our parents’ place in Cavite. I don’t have any idea what my siblings planned to prepare but I’m guessing it’s gonna be a decent spread.
But since we’re spending the afternoon of the 25th in our home, I might just cook one or two dishes for a few expected guests. Two of my godchildren are showing up, too, as I was told by their moms. Hmmm, I need to prepare something sweet and filling for the kids. And the kids-at-heart. Haha.
