Pancake Balls

Hi Guys!

Ever since our father brought us to Rustan's Cubao to eat Samurai's Takoyaki (Japanese Octopus Balls) when we were kids, we've been big Takoyaki fans. We can gobble a lot of this Japanese street food. We love it so much that my brother bought a Takoyaki pan and even studied how to make it.

Here's a video on how to cook Takoyaki.

Anyway, this post is not actually how to make Takoyaki but of a snack or dessert that's inspired from our favorite street food.

Easy-Breezy BBQ with Clara Ole Barbecue Marinade

Hi Guys!

You might be wondering why I've been posting recipes featuring Clara Ole lately. Well, if you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you would know that they sent me a few of their products to try. I have been a Clara Ole fan for quite some time now and one of the first Clara Ole products I loved is their Three-Cheese Pasta Sauce. I then later on tried their salad dressings and the Caesar Salad dressing became my instant favorite. That's why I am so thankful to Clara Ole because I got to try products I would not have thought I'd like particularly this Original Barbecue Marinade.

Easy Turbo Macaroni Recipe

Hi Guys!

I visited my best friend one day, and she made baked macaroni for me. She lives in a condo with very limited space so instead of baking the macaroni in an oven she used her Turbo Broiler instead. I never tried cooking baked macaroni before because the oven intimidates me, BIG TIME. So when I saw that I can make my favorite dish in a Turbo Broiler, I thought it's about time I learn how to make this myself.

Barbecue at Bar-B-Skew!

Hi Guys!

Filipinos undeniably love to eat . That's why D.I.Y. and all-you-can-eat buffets seem to be big hit lately. All sorts of buffets from those that serve Filipino dishes to various Asian dishes have sprouted everywhere. D.I.Y buffets serve a wide array of menu which diners can cook/prepare themselves. There's a D.I.Y buffet for almost every kind of food you can think of (hot pot, barbecue, pizza, burger, and even pancakes) . And just when you think you've seen it all, comes Bar-B-Skew, the first and only barbecue skewer buffet in the Philippines.
