I have lost count with regard to the number of adobo recipes I have! This is the latest and probably the 5th! Well, we love chicken adobo so much that I want to try all the different versions. I have my own classic adobo, our helper's awesome adobo, Chinese-style adobo, slow cooker adobo and then this --- a pressure cooker version. And this time, I am talking mainly about chicken adobo -- pork adobo is equally as popular and for me, equally delicious!

I am grateful that my kids love to eat vegetables or at least are willing to try new vegetable dishes which is why I try to look for new recipes so they don't get tired of the same old fare. The other day I got some haricots verts instead of the usual green beans. Haricots verts are also called French green beans - they look like the regular green beans but with thinner edible pods and smaller seeds. Nonetheless, despite seeming smaller than their bigger green bean cousins - they are more intense in flavor and taste. Well, at least according to my taste buds!! :)

Nearly 13 years ago when hubby and I first came to the US, we fell in-love with the many delicious food that were available and uniquely American. We were likewise amazed at the sheer variety of food we saw in all the grocery stores. Aisles of cereals, countless types of ice cream and simply just the overwhelming amount of food choices! It was dizzying just looking at how many food to choose from. At the same time we were also very excited to try as many food as we can! After all, whether in England or the Philippines, we didn't have that much to choose from!!

Last Saturday the ladies at our church met up to celebrate the birthday of one of our friends. It was a big milestone in her life and we all wanted it to be special. Our hostess organized not just an ordinary party but one which involved cooking demonstration - the food prepared during the demo was what we actually ate. I was assigned to make dessert and guess what I made? My favorite French dessert - Clafoutis.
