Moms take pride in their home cooking specialties and they're prone to guard their recipes like a hawk, until you are able to coax them out of their shell and share it with the world. This week's Kris TV featured the moms of reel-to-real loveteam Jason Francisco and Melai Cantiveros and their secret recipes. We love their take on how to prepare and cook seafood in a different way. They're definitely worth trying in the kitchen today.
Josh and I fell in love with Singaporean black pepper crabs during our last trip to Singapore (Sept 6-9). I searched the Internet for an approximate recipe and found two that seemed simple enough to recreate.
Kris loves adobo and that is why she has really worked hard to perfect her version of the dish. One of her interpretations of adobo has everything - chicken, pork and some liver (called CPA for short in the Philippines). It is even made more delectable with the addition of Worcestershire sauce and as much as possible, she uses sukang Iloko (Ilocos vinegar) which has a more distinct flavor.
Here's a super quick pasta recipe!
Prepare spaghetti or linguine noodles.
While the noodles are cooking, heat half a cup of light olive oil with chopped garlic. Low heat so as not to burn the garlic. Put a bit of salt and pepper.
Kris is an avid book reader. And through the years she has amassed quite a number of books. She recently revealed she has three rooms filled with books. But what do you do when you don\'t have extra rooms to put books in? A simple solution is creative shelving.
