Ginataang Bayabas

Mammy cooked ginataang bayabas for merrienda and it brought back fun memories of our Lola Paring (Mammy’s mother).

Tinuno nga Bangus (Broiled Stuffed Milkfish)

This is just an update on a grilled tilapia recipe which we have posted  in 2011 (see Tilapia :  Grilled Pinoy Style )  I can’t say that this recipe is Ilocano since most Filipinos would grill fishes the same way, stuffed or not.  What makes this an Ilocano food is the dip.  In our house, …
