Bonz’ Kitchen Escapade

This recipe is shared by my hubby’s friend when I saw him posted this delicious looking food at his own Facebook account.  This friend of his really loves to cook and his posts makes me drool. Figuratively speaking.  What’s also great in his food posts are really affordable, they can be easily found in the nearby market.  Well, for this recipe, except for the fish fillet, that’s why I stock up for the fillet when we went to the grocery store last week.  

Since this was an unmeasured shared recipe, he pm-ed me the ingredients and recipe but not the measurements, I can’t use my recipe plugin for this.  I will just be sharing the instructions on how to do it, and it will be up to you to play with the measurements.

I used 3 pcs. of cream dory fish fillets, I think it is almost 2 kilos if you weigh them.  Marinade them with calamansi juice, turmeric, salt and pepper.  Let it sit for 15-30 minutes.  While you’re waiting, prepare the ingredients for breading the fillets, you need 1 lightly beaten egg & Japanese bread crumbs.  Dip the fillets in the beaten egg, then into the bread crumbs.  Do this one at a time, until every fillet is covered with bread crumbs.  Fry these fillets.  Set aside.

For the white sauce, I realize that it is the same recipe for my carbonara recipe, less the basil.  Simply saute garlic and onions in butter.  Use butter instead of oil, but you can use if you preferred to use that. Follow adding mushrooms, then heavy cream.  I used the 250 ml. Nestle All-Purpose cream for this recipe.  Add the basil after the cream.  Add a bit of water if you find the cream too thick.  Use salt and pepper to paste.  

You can add vegetables in this menu, simply blanched asparagus or broccoli florets.  Enjoy!



Today is my daughter’s first day in the big school.  As her school year ended last March, we decided that it’s time for her to experience a change of environment.  Making her world a little bigger than what she’s used to for three years now.

We’ll I don’t know if she’s that excited for the change of scene, but definitely I am so I made a resolution that her packed snack will all be homemade and no junk foods.  As if I’m letting her them all the time, once in a blue, yes.  Anyway, now that I have already an oven, thanks to my MIL, I can find interesting recipes for her packed snacks.  But for now, I did not use my oven, I decided to try the No-Bake Chewy Oreo Bars I’ve seen online and a perfect timing because a pack of crushed oreos has been in my cupboard for quite sometime now.  I think it’s time for it to be exhausted.

Yesterday was my sister’s and son’s birthday.  My sister turned 24 years old and my son is now 2.  Celebrating birthdays is a good time to practice baking and decorating cakes, if not cupcakes, and this was a perfect time since it is two birthdays in one day.

Honestly, I don’t have any cake designs in mind for my younger sister’s cake but I do have two designs, still deciding which one, for my son: Spiderman or Baymax of Big Hero 6.  I already have searched for a Spiderman cake inspiration weeks before the birthdate but when I noticed that my little boy is getting interested with the white fluffy robot in the Big Hero 6 movie, I’m having second thoughts of using the Spiderman design inspiration.

When I asked of hubby’s thoughts on this, he voted for a Baymax design cake so I searched Pinterest boards for any ideas how to make a Baymax fondant topper. And this is what I’ve got…

Last April 17 was my grandmother’s-in-law 89th birthday but the family decided to celebrate it on a family day, Sunday, April 19.  The plan was just a simple get together with everyone bringing their share of food for the party, and since I am baking, my mother-in-law assigned me to create Lola Mommy’s birthday cake.
