Choc*Nut Ice Cream

ChocNut Ice Cream

I have a small bag of peanut powder and didn't know what to do it with. The suggested banana peanut smoothie sounds yucky to me and cookies aren't appealing either. Last week, I used a little of the peanut powder to make chocolate and peanut candy similar to King™ Choc*Nut, a Filipino peanut and chocolate candy that isn't too chocolaty nor overly sweet and has been a favorite of every Filipino I know. This idea of milk chocolate and peanut combination produced a delicious ice cream flavor.

Puchero Filipino

Puchero Filipino

One of our favorite soup/stew dishes is Puchero or Pochero which is the Filipino version of another favorite, Spanish Cocido. The difference is the added vegetables: Filipino cooking bananas called saba, sweet potatoes, and bokchoy. The Filipino puchero is served with tomato sauce and/or sauce made with mashed boiled or roasted Asian eggplant seasoned with vinegar, garlic, and salt.
