Cook at Home with Carnation Milk

Browsing the Carnation's website, Cook at Home made me realized I'm not yet ready for a high caliber recipe. However, I can't back out now. I made a promise. Limme share to you the easiest way to turn ordinary days into Mmmdays with Carnation!

Creamy Macaroni Chicken Soup with Carnation Milk

Here are the ingredients;

350 grams macaroni pasta
250-300 grams chicken breast
3 pieces hotdog, cut about 2 cm  thick
1-2 cloves garlic, crushed/minced
2 knorr chicken stock cube
1 small white onion, sliced
2 carrots, sliced in julienne strips
2 tbsp Butter
1 stalk celery, sliced
1-2 cups roughly shredded cabbage
salt and pepper
1 can Carnation Milk

Cuisineuer Steps:

In a casserole boil the chicken in the water. Add 1 cube of knorr chicken cube. You can add the salt and pepper, if you like. Once the chicken is cooked, take it out of the water to shred or to slice. Set aside the chicken. Put in the macaroni pasta on the chicken stock cover until cooked al dente.

While waiting for the pasta to be cooked, put some butter in a pan and sauté garlic, onion and carrots. Put the hotdog and cook for about two more minutes. Add your chicken and continue mixing. Add knorr chicken cube to taste. Turn off the fire.

When the pasta is cooked, add the meat mixture in the casserole. Then add up your cabbage, celery, salt and pepper. Turn off the fire. After a minute pour the Carnation Evaporated Milk.

Serve with a big smile during cold, rainy days.

Cuisineuer Tip/s: Put Carnation Milk after everything is cooked.  It will enhance the creamy flavor of your Chicken Soup. Use butter instead of oil, the yellowish color on top of your soup is so appetizing.

Carnation's GOOD EATS at Buenisimo

Sweet Corn Panna Cotta & Chocolate Truffles 

The Cuisineuer was part of an exclusive culinary event last week at Buenisimo in Eastwood Mall. Graced by Chef China Cojuanco, we feasted in a whole new dining experience with the goodness of Carnation Milk. The Good Eats Menu were Lengua Legislativa, Croquetas de Pollo con Huevos, Canadian Glazed Ham and Tricolor Pasta in Salmon Cream sauce. For dessert, we had Sweet Corn Panna Cota and the delicate, melt-in-your-mouth Chocolate Truffles (picture above), my utmost favorite.

Lengua Legislativa 

We were given a scorecard to rate each recipe at the start of the event. Majority of us chose the Lengua Legislativa cooked with Carnation Milk as the Good Eat of the event.

Croquetas de Pollo con Huevos

Another breakthrough star of the night is the Croquetas de Pollo con Huevos. I liked the crispy texture of the croquetas outside and the soft, good taste of the cheese inside together with the prepared sauce with Carnation Milk. I lost the pictures of  Canadian Glazed Ham and Tricolor Pasta in Salmon Cream sauce. You can check it out on The Peach Kitchen. All the dishes are magnificent. 

Who said that China and Rome are Continents apart?

Another good thing was Carnation gave us a bag of Carnation Milk. Hmmmm, what should I do with this, y'all know that I am dependent on the fastfoods and restaurants scattered around the Metro because I am living alone. Is this an omen  to start cooking at home and unleash my culinary talent? I'll give it a try. For the first time, I'll cook for y'all on my next post. I'll ask Chef China how or better yet limme check out Carnation's website, Cook at Home for a good Carnation recipe.

Brother's Burger - Satisfying Urge

Available in different toppings, flame-broiled, 100% beef burgers, served with fresh lettuce, tomatoes, catsup and mayo on an oatmeal bun. Isn't it tempting?

Big Brothers Burger 1/2 lb., Php 175

 Once in a while I go for burgers to substitute my rice topped lunch or dinner. So when Daffodil said she wants to treat me at Brothers Burger in Bonifacio High Street, I didn't say no. Daffodil was one of my officemates and she is resigning because of some issues in the office. You know, call center people. We talked about many things, and her growing  "love" with one of our officemates.Saying goodbyes are not easy, I realized, people come and go unto our lives but only few made a difference. We promised not to burn bridges afterall.

While my mind was preoccupied with a lot of things to talked about, my mouth otherwise was pretty much busy savoring the juicy, flame-broiled, 100% beef burgers, served with fresh lettuce, tomatoes, catsup and mayo on an oatmeal bun.  i would say that this is one of the ultimate burgers I had.

TOSH - The Old Spaghetti House

Fried Mozzarella Sticks

Just like vintage clothes, apparel and accessories, old restaurant and authentic recipes are fashionable. One of our favorite restaurants to hang out around the The Fort  is the TOSH. Whenever someone is sad because she has broken from a long, serious relationship we talked about it in Tosh. If somebody was promoted because she/he has done a good job we celebrate at Tosh. Or maybe just celebrating a daily triumph we love to eat and enjoy tosh's recipes.

Spaghetti Carbonara

Today is nothing special. We just hang out and chose to try their trio number 4, Itallian. For Php 635 it will full 4 people's empty stomachs with Fried Mozzarella Sticks, Spaghetti Carbonara, and Supremo Pizza.

Supremo Pizza

My utmost favorite here is their Classic Lasagna, i'll post one next time. Here at TOSH, there are really treasures waiting to be discovered.

Resorts World Manila's Mercado

Potato Salad

The long hours of work at night is tiring and starving. Call center agents and BPO workers could agree. So my office mates and I looked for a place nearby to spend a buffet breakfast to pamper our taste buds... to treat ourselves, somehow. 

Browsing the net, we found out that Mercado Restaurant in Resorts World Manila offers affordable buffet.  We all agreed to try it after work. Upon arrival, we were told that we need to register as a member first to be able to avail the buffet...good thing was, registration was free of charge. Government issued i.d. is needed to be able to sign in, after signing in, the membership card will be issued, don't worry it, was very fast! 

The card was auto loaded with 100 points slot credit. We were told that we can use the points to redeem for some beverages and food. I'm not a gambler and this is that's first time to enter a casino. To activate the card, I should play a bet to the slot machine. I won up to 600 points! I had fun!

After activating our membership cards, we headed to Mercado Restaurant for the "all you can eat breakfast". We just need to pay Php 96.33 each. I  took a snapshot of my plate. I had chicken tocino, longanisa  (sausage), bangus tinapa (smoked milkfish) and croissant.
