My final first batch of recipes on my SUSHI FEAST PLATTER... Crispy Dinakdakan Crunch Roll. Typically, dinakdakan is a grilled pork belly with ear, tongue and liver like that serves as a starter in our province of Ilocos. But in this recipe, I fried the liempo or pork belly without the other organs but with the same cooking techniques and ingredients. I made it according to my children's liking. So here I go again, sharing another type of sushi which is a crunch roll: a flour coated-fried seaweed that results in a crunchy texture.

For what I know, the filipino term "Pancit" is simply called noodles. I think it's the top most pinoy's food of choice for rice substitute. I would say, it's a part of our daily lives. If you are a tourist, you don't need to worry if you feel starve because it's locally available. It's really a budget money saver. Besides being very affordable, you'll get instantly busog (satiated). It has many variants to choose from. One type of pancit is the one that I had learned from my mother in my younger days.... "Canton ala Mama Loves".

Usually, we, nanays are the in-home-chef. But surprisingly, our children also want to act like a pro in the kitchen sometimes (it's summertime anyway~giggles~). So, I sit back, chillin' for a while as my daughter Lia shows off her skills in baking her recipe which was featured in my "Mango Rama Dessert Favorites: #2.Mango Graham Icebox Cake".
This yummy ice cream I made is my way to bond with the kids since they are still on summer vacation. It's very simple to make. Here's my added list of my "Mango Rama Dessert #1: My Spongy Mango Gelato". It's a classic tiramisu recipe that just made into an ice cream. You will all going to enjoy this toothsome gelato recipe while watching your favorite movie with them, like us.

I'd like to share some of my toplist in best coffee shop in Doha, Qatar ( toured around the city a few years ago). To those who are coffeephile like me, I knew several places there to unwind during your stay. Coffee really is like an important part of me, as a mom; especially when busting out a load of chores plus my batutings (my endearment for my children)... uhm, you know what I mean (laughs). This idea can't make me wait making myself barista at home. As saying goes, "Coffee with loved ones is like capturing happiness in a cup".

Since it's mango season, it's such a blessing to receive a bunch of mangoes this summer, thanks to my very generous uncle! It's time to make great desserts with these sweet, beautiful and freshly picked native mangoes.

Here's my additional sushi recipe...Chicken Inasal Caterpillar Roll!!! Inasal word is originated in Bacolod City (PH), a term in cooking which is composed of meat, marinated in a mixture of soy sauce and other flavorings then chargrilled. In this recipe, the ingredients were just fried instead of grilling it. In the other hand, caterpillar roll is the same thing with dragon roll - a thinly sliced avocado placed on top of a sushi roll thus, look-like a caterpillar.

Sisig is from a kapampangan word. It's a meat (a pork,more of an ear pig, liver and fat; it can be a chicken or a fish) cooked and dressed with a calamansi to make a soury taste...its like a salad. I know I should have made this as a home cooked meal but for the meantime let's make it into a bite-size "uramaki dragon roll". Uramaki means a rice rolled outward the nori and the nori encloses the fillings while a dragon roll is a type of sushi that usually an uramaki sushi roll and has an avocado on top of it.
