Last week, we harvested our first batch of home-grown labanos (radishes). Of course, we were so excited at first that almost every meal we had had fresh labanos salad until each of us didn’t want to even smell a single radish, LOL!
This was the Instagram shot I took before we pulled out the radishes.
Nothing beats fresh and organic veggies!
We obviously had excess radish and the boys didn’t want to eat a single radish anymore. But I didn’t want it to go to waste and I thought, well if they don’t see the radish, they’ll eat the dish. What better way to hide radishes in a dish than to make burgers! Anyway, I already tried mixing in turnips and carrots when I make burger patties or lumpiang shanghai filling so I knew it would work. To make the burgers yummier for ulam, I then thought of mixing the grilled burger patties with mushroom gravy.
And so, my very own creation, Labanos Burger Steak, was born!

Tired of the usual lumpia? Here’s a new spring roll recipe courtesy of the NESTLÉ Cream Facebook page. Rapi loved it so much that Dadi only got to eat one roll, LOL! He said it’s a cross between chicken curry and cheese sticks which are his favorites.
2 tbsp cooking oil
1/3 cup minced onions
250g chicken breast, minced
1 8g pack of Maggi Magic Sarap
1 tsp curry powder
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 cup grated quick melt cheese
1/4 cup NESTLÉ All Purpose Cream
10 pcs lumpia wrapper, cut in half
oil for deep frying
When we think of Filipino food, adobo instantly comes to mind. Even with countless of variations, adobo is still the ultimate Pinoy comfort food. “Adobo connects us all,” don’t you agree?
This is what the founders of Adobo Connection
believe. They have designed Adobo Connection to be a place where friends and family connect over adobo and other home-cooked meals.
From it’s first-ever branch in Dela Rosa, Makati, Adobo Connection has grown to be a franchise of nine branches
, the latest of which is this one at World Corporate Center, Shaw Boulevard (near EDSA)
. New ones are opening soon at One Archer’s Place in Taft Avenue, Manila, at SM City Fairview, and at Valero, Makati. Continue reading
Happy New Year! I’m sure your tummy had its fill of yummy feasts during the past holiday season. Honestly, I and the boys gained pounds when my sister-in-law and her family came from the province and stayed with us for a week. Ate Cel is a certified cook and she has a catering business in Naga City. That’s why, when she’s with us, it’s almost always fiesta food at home!
