Apricot Filo Rolls

Labels: ,

It's California apricots appreciation week or maybe month if they are available all month long. They are very juicy and sweet and best eaten on their own like an apple or a pear as a snack, and also great added to vegetable salad.

No-Bake Peach Kefir Cheesecake

Labels: ,

I'm going nuts over kefir milk lately. I love to drink it flavored with fresh mint leaves and salt but I want to use it for snacks and desserts too so I started draining out the whey to make it thicker similar to yogurt cheese. Et voilĂ ! Light and yummy no-bake cheesecake in small glass containers.

Bulgogi Burgers

Labels: ,

I was going to make hamburger sliders and thought why not season the beef mince with bulgogi seasoning. This way they won't need ketchup, mustard, tomatoes, pickles, and mustard which make eating regular hamburgers very messy.

I served the hamburgers in mini pita halves together with red and green lettuce. I also had one of my favorite Korean side combination: pan-roasted Korean sweet potato and kimchi. I had a really great lunch today.

Puto Maya

Labels: , , ,

Reading always makes me hungry. Once again I cooked something after reading a novel; this time it's FALLING TOGETHER by Marisa de los Santos. The last third of the novel is set in Cebu, Philippines and she mentioned some of the delicacies of that region. One of the yummies is puto maya, glutinous rice mixed with a little regular rice, cooked/steamed in coconut milk, sugar, salt, and a little ginger.
