Hi Elna! I'm really glad you enjoy 80 Breakfasts....

2006-08-19T17:49:00.000+08:00

Hi Elna! I'm really glad you enjoy 80 Breakfasts...thanks so much for your nice comments! :) I know what you mean, I only really started cooking "when I had to", not when I got married but when I lived on my own abroad. There was a time when all I would eat was tomatoes and stale bread. Those were the days. Oh boy. I've been meaning to do a post about fabada at some point, including the places I get my ingredients, but if you'd like it soon please email me at eighty_breakfasts@yahoo.com. Thanks! :)

Hi Paz! Thanks :) Maybe one day we will all have a dinner together!

I wish I were at that dinner party! Yum! Looks like you did an excellent job on both those parties.

2006-08-18T04:59:00.000+08:00

Wow fabulous dinner! Everything looks so yummy! You seem to be a great cook! As a new bride, I didn't know how to cook as I've always relied on our family cook to prepare all the meals and was never interested in cooking. My mom would always say "you'll learn when you need to!" True enough, i did learn when I had to! That is, after I got married and moved out of the Phils. By the way, I love your blog and keep coming back when I get the chance. I wonder if you can share with us your fabada recipe. I did try some from a recipe I found over the net but wasn't very pleased. Would love to try your recipe. Thanks a lot. Keep up the good works!

Hi Lani! Thanks! :) Will definitely try the spray technique next time! :)

Hi Yvonne! Will do! :)

Next time you have a dinner part ... don't forget to invite me!!!

Congratulations, JOey. You're such a wonderful hostess and cook.

Yup, spray water while roasting the pork to ensure crispiness, JMom is right.

2006-08-16T09:01:00.000+08:00

Hi Jmom! Thanks! I know, it's such a temptation to try new things...and I feel too that it's an opportunity to try something new (as it's unlikely I would try a roast pork just for me a C!) :) Thanks for the tip on the moisture...will keep it in mind!



Gosh, wouldn't I love to attend one of your dinner...

2006-08-16T04:51:00.000+08:00

Gosh, wouldn't I love to attend one of your dinners! :D and so many new toys to play with! Your table looked beautiful and your food even more so.

I don't know why, they tell us over and over again never to try new dishes during dinner parties, but I do it all the time too! Sometimes that's the only opportunity you get to try something new. Your roast still looks delicious though. Zita is right, I have tried this method of having some moisture in the oven and the cracklings always come out perfectly. My mom even sprays her roast with water during roasting to ensure crispness.

Hi Puspha! Thanks :)

Hi Cin! Hehe...our "hidden talents" ;)

Hi Midge! Thanks for the crackling tip! I am definitely trying this again and again until I get crackling! :)

2006-08-15T07:45:00.000+08:00

Oi ne! Bocconcini, gateau au chocolat, and roast pork - heavenly!

Oh, and a tip for some lovely crackling: add about an eight of a teaspoon of white sugar to your lemon-and-salt rub. It does the trick for me. ^_^

2006-08-15T07:04:00.000+08:00

looks like a wonderful spread! my mum was pretty amazed to know that I could cook too after getting married, but I tell her that I learnt from the best :-)

2006-08-14T14:11:00.000+08:00

Hi Ces! Thanks! :) It is really exciting to have all these new things and a place to call my own in which to play with them :)

Hi Lori! I couldn't resist when I saw those plates :) Hehe...I'm hearing the senti music already! See you at your demo!

Hi Ipshi! Thanks for dropping by :) My goodness...I am so happy and very flattered at all your wonderful comments! Thank you for making my day :) I am so glad that the recipe worked for you! Funny that you should mention Nutella because I just made those cupcakes again this weekend...as for the stroop, I can't get it here (Manila, Philippines) either...oh well. I don't have any microwave recipes, dessert or otherwise...sorry! But if I do come across one I will let you know. And yes, definitely you can link to my blog...thanks!!! :)

Hi Melissa! Thanks :) You said it...Donna rocks! :)

Hi Marketman! Thank you! You know I get a lot of inspiration from you blog...especially the entries describing meals you've prepared, or the place setting entry (loved that one)! I know what you mean about getting more elaborate...your imagination just starts to run away with you! :)

2006-08-14T08:35:00.000+08:00

Oh my God!!! The menu looks like something out of a cooking show by some celebrity chef or something! Yikes!!! It looks fantastic! You realize, your meals will just get more and more elaborate...heehee...

2006-08-12T00:23:00.000+08:00

Wow.....looks like it was a grand success! You can't go wrong with a Donna Hay recipe!

Joey, I also love that dessert plate, although mine would say, "I'll have the whole cake, please!" :) I also make fabada and I LOVE it to death. Ay-yay-yay, reading about your newlywed adventures makes me reminisce about mine. (cue senti music here).

::::Rob! Hello there :) Sorry to dissappoint, no brussel sprouts this time ;) One day soon so stay on your toes...hehehe :) Thanks for your words of encouragement! Just don't eat too much late at night before sleeping...::::


hmmmmm sounds kind of suspicious to me. Kind of like the person nobody knows maybe got to you. Holding you hostage or something? If she is making you speak against your will then clear your throat once......if not then twice....she whom we dont know will never know.

2006-08-10T09:38:00.000+08:00

Lovely dinner! Sarap naman. One thing I've learned from my mother-in-law about cooking roast pork is to put the pork on top of a water bath. Use a large baking tray then pour hot water, then put the grill and place the pork on top and bake it. The water makes the pork moist. But make sure that the pork is not submerged in water. Works everytime for me. I've tried it w/out the water bath, and the meat was dry. I haven't hosted a dinner party in a while. I'd preffer to be the guest! LOL.



looks wonderful!
