Farm to Table: Cauliflower Popcorn

A healthy way to have Sunday afternoon popcorn. It is another farm to table tale, how I enjoyed harvesting cauliflowers from our Kipalbig vegetable farm.
Farm day
It is one of the many recipes that I been wanting to try. And finally I get to, thanks to Papa's organic cauliflowers.
Cauliflower Popcorn
2 heads of cauliflower, cut into bite size
olive oil
pinch of salt
flavorings (optional)
Direction:
Cut cauliflowers into bite sizes. Wash and Drain.
Place it in a baking dish/pan. Drizzle with olive and sprinkle with salt.
Bake it in a 370F for 10 to 15 minutes, or until tender.



With Browie's approval, Cauliflower Popcorn is THUMBS UP!

Hole in a Wall: Snack Kooh Food House (Chicken and Pork Siopao)

from inside the car; Snack Koh's drive thru counter
Snack Koh is an institution around Yumang Street in General Santos City. I got to know about Snack Koh’s siopao when I rented an apartment in Yumang Street for more than a year. A colleague introduced it to me and the rest is history.
It is my go to place when I am hungry and lazy to prepare something to snack on or it can be dinner sometimes.
They only serve Chicken and Pork siopao, but during merienda time the street looks like there is a drive tru. Some cars just stop open their window order and go.



And on Valentines Day after delivering the day’s orders, I went to grab Snack Koh’s siopao. What I like about their siopao is that the dough itself has flavor, it is not just bland white dough. The fillings are very tasty, at Php 10.00 each, I can say it is “SULIT.”

Snack Koh’s is located at  Yumang Street, Lagao, Generla Santos City.

V-Day of Blessings!

BLESSED to be doing the thing I am most passionate about, BAKING. And GRATEFUL to be an instrument to surprise and show one's love to someone.
VALENTINES DAY of BLESSINGS!!!

S & R Shopping, Davao City

Baked goodies order keeps coming and since most of my baking ingredients where from my Ma Net based in US, the opening of S&R Davao is a breather for me. From more than a month of waiting for “balikbayan box” to a four hours bus ride to Davao City, erased the lull time.
With Valentines Day around, I got to have reserved ingredients. I left the house past 4:00 A.M. and got back home by 3:00 P.M.
S&R is membership shopping. Membership is easy, just bring two valid I.D., signed up the membership form, pay Php 700.00, have your photo taken and viola you got your S&R Membership.
5:00 A.M. on my way to Davao City


As I roam around S&R a lot of business ideas keep popping, but I have to keep it a secret for now. It is a haven for bulk shopper, almost everything comes in big containers or in bulk.
After shopping, one of the must try when in S&R is their PIZZZZZAAAA. I had their Cheese Pizza and a cup of Cappuccino, for early lunch.

S&R Davao City is located beside NCCC Davao City. Very accessible and not having your own car is not a problem, taxis are readily available, it being located in the major thorough fair.
I am done with my shopping and early lunch by 11:00 A.M., that I get to ride the same YBL Non-Stop Bus on my way to Davao City.
11:00 A.M. on my way to General Santos City

S&R shopping will always be fun.

Yellow Cab, Best Way to End my Week

It was a week long of blessings for me, with daily orders for baked goodies, I can't wait for a weekend with Mama and Browie. It was a supposed Browie's treat for his white card but he just can't spend a day eating and enjoying the treat with out Mama, kaya naman "sama natin si Mom, Ate?" With such a sweetie, I just cannot say no.


I love Yellow Cab and I have to share it with Mama and Browie. Thanks to KCC Veranza for bringing Yellow Cab in General Santos City.

We had; Pepperoni Folded Pizza for Php165.00, Parmesan Garlic Wings for Php255.00, Potato Halves for Php 205 and 2 Sola Raspberry Ice Tea.

I am a bit disappointed that their Yellow Cab  Ice Cream is not available. But the fun of sharing this moment with Browie and Mama is more than enough.

More Mai Wanders and Eats!!!!
