Banana-Coconut Flour Pancakes

DSC_7340

My husband and I have been frequenting the Farmers’ Market at SRP, and last Saturday, we bought half a kilo of bananas. Because we had a rather heavy dinner last night (thank you family!), I decided to make a healthier breakfast to try to make up for the scrumptious dinner. These banana pancakes are an update to these Flourless, 3-Ingredient Pancakes as today’s pancakes involved more than three ingredients and incorporated a new twist.

Cauliflower Rice

Filipino that I am, I am a big rice eater. Even when I’m eating noodles, there should be rice on the side. At worst, even when I’m eating spaghetti, I sneak in a few spoons of rice. Rice is not bad, not bad at all, but I’ve been trying to experiment with cooking rice and incorporating vegetables and proteins into it so that I can consume less of the rice (carbohydrates!) and more of the nutrients from the vegetables and meat.  Continue reading “Cauliflower Rice”

FOOD | Rolled Oats-caldo

DSC_7260

My oatzcaldo (last recipe here) just got updated. In the last two months, we have been consuming rolled oats instead of the usual instant or quick-cooking oats. The rolled oats are heaven-sent as they give me a fuller stomach compared to instant or quick-cooking oats. A little research tells me that rolled (or regular) oats packs in a lot of fiber, which is good for the heart and the digestive system. The rolled oats take a little more time to cook, though, compared to instant. But, the difference in taste has me saying “I won’t go back to quick-cooking” anymore.

Vegan Pancakes

Good morning!

In the middle half of last year and for most part of this year, I was into “vegan” cooking. I was influenced by the Cebu Farmers’ Market, which still continues to thrive and displays organic produce at Handuraw. One of the first vegan recipe I searched for was a recipe for pancakes because my then-boyfriend loves pancakes. The recipe should be easy and the ingredients easy to find. Finally, I found the pancake recipe I was looking for from One Ingredient Chef‘s website. Continue reading “Vegan Pancakes”

TRAVELS | Rocks Coffee-to-Go, Dumaguete

 

Last year, my boyfriend and I decided on a very short (half a day) trip to Dumaguete. I was in Siquijor at that time and my boyfriend who was visiting me was going back to Cebu and I decided to go with him to Dumaguete and tour the small city in half a day. There is not much to do in Dumaguete except eat (or visit friends and relatives), and on that particular day, we just decided to take leisurely strolls in the city’s downtown. The day before we took the trip, I decided we will have breakfast at Rock’s Coffee-To-Go at Silliman University. The coffee shop opens at 8:00, and the staff was bright and sunshiny and played a good set of music (reggae!) to accompany us.
