English Tea with Donut and Biscotti

I love any kind of tea especially Japanese green tea and English black tea. I take afternoon tea with anything sweet on the side like biscuits, cookies or donuts. Today, I had English tea with cream and sugar paired with Chocolate Donut and Biscotti. This is my entry to Food Friday.

Fried Vegetable and Pork Potstickers

Potstickers are one of our favorite snacks or dinners depending on the amount I cook ;-). I normally steam them in my bamboo steamer, but for a change I fried them in canola oil. I used lite soy sauce mixed with calamansi juice for dipping sauce.

Cassava Cake

Here's another easy dessert recipe for everyone to try. Promise you can make this with eyes closed, but don't try it anyway, you might make a big mess in the kitchen ;-). Cassava cake is a very easy and popular Filipino dessert, as the name implies it is made of cassava, a starchy tuberous root crop common to tropical region like the Philippines. Cassava is sometimes called yuca, manioc or tapioca. Cassava is already great as it is, we used to just boil them and eat them with sugar sprinkled on top. Sometimes we boil them in water mixed with sugar as syrup.


1 lb Frozen Grated Cassava
1 can Coconut Milk
1 Can Condensed Milk
1/4 cup Sugar

1. Thaw the frozen cassava
2. Mix all the ingredients together and pour in a baking dish
3. Bake in a preheated 350 degree F oven for approximately 45 minutes or until the top is golden brown.

Chicken BBQ for Cookout

Hi friends, how did your 4th of July celebration go? We had a cookout in my house yesterday and of course my hb, the master chef was so busy manning the grill. Nobody touches the grill except the man ;-). We had the usual hamburger, hotdogs, back ribs and chicken barbeque on the hot grill. I want to share this very easy and no-brainer chicken bbq recipe. For the marinade - whatever you have in the pantry that you think will make the marinade tasty and juicy just throw them in. That's what I did and it turned out great. These are some of what was left from the cookout and I paired the chicken bbq with hot steamed white rice and vinegar with hot green pepper on the side, yummy!


Boneless chicken thighs, cut into bite pieces

Toyomansi (Soy Sauce with Calamansi)
Vinegar with Hot Pepper
Ginger Ale
Teriyaki Sauce
Hot Chili Sauce
Sweet Chili Sauce
Sesame Oil
Oyster Sauce
Worcestershire Sauce

Garlic Powder with Parsley
White Ground Pepper
1. Just mix all the marinade ingredients together and soak the chicken there overnight.
2. Thread the chicken in skewers and discard the marinade.

Kitchen Tip #4
If possible, I use kitchen shear instead of knife to cut the chicken or other meat and
cut them up in the sink. That way, I won't use chopping board anymore and
therefore only have few utensils to wash and
won't make the kitchen counter messy too.
