Moist Bola-Bola

Moist is always better. Aren't you just disappointed when your bola-bola turns out to be dry? The secret actually is in the extender. Thanks Tita Ging for the tip!


1/4 kilo of ground beef
one head grated garlic
one whole white onion
1/4 cup grated carrots
1/4 cup minced spring onions
4-5 slices of bread, sides removed
1-2 cups of milk, depending on the size of your bread.
(note: you want your bread to be soaked in milk but not dripping)
olive oil


Mix everything in a bowl and allow to sit in the ref for 20 minutes before molding. Fry in heated oil until both sides are golden brown.

Sardine Eggplant

This is a staple in our house, because my Dad loves both key ingredients: Eggplants and Sardines. This is very easy to cook and prepare and can be done in 10 minutes or less!


Olive Oil
Eggplants cut in your desired shape and size
Sardines in Tomato Sauce


This is very simple. Heat a little oil in a pan, put two cloves of crushed garlic and the eggplant until they are halfway done. Remove from your skillet. Using the same oil, put the rest of your garlic and onions, saute, then add your sardines in tomato sauce. Add salt and pepper, and a pinch of sugar. Once the mixture is about to boil, add your eggplants and allow to sit for a few minutes.

Serve with a cup of steaming rice.
