My goodness I have one free Friday!  Literally Happy Friday!  I just wrapped up a deadline yesterday, not that I don’t have few more to sink my teeth into again, but I think I’d grab this time for a much-needed break and do some food blogging.  Baka amagin na mga litrato ng mga pagkaing niluluto ko hehe.

Pork BBQ spareribs

This BBQ pork spare ribs recipe has become a favorite.  Why not when I combined elements I like from reading Martha Stewart and watching Jamie Oliver?  Not that I’m a big fan of Martha but I am 100% for JO.  Oh you will definitely love this tender, finger-licking, fall-off-the-bone goodness.

I am not a professional cook. My only claim to having a culinary background is a short stint as my dad’s teen ‘sous chef’ in his carinderia ages ago. Dad ran small eateries since I was a young kid - serving standard ‘turo-turo’ food ranging from the likes of menudo, adobo, pritong isda, dinuguan, binagoongan, bopis, munggo, pinakbet and giniling to merienda fares like goto, ginataan, pancit bihon, halu-halo and saging con yelo.

My father, a farmer in his hometown before working his way to becoming an accountant, definitely influenced my cooking in a lot of ways than I thought. My siblings and I were raised in a backyard full of fruit trees and vegetable garden. We spent weekends and the summer breaks running around with ducks, chickens, goats and pigs. I had wonderful memories of gathering eggs, butchering chickens, selling vegetables and the sweet aroma of preserved fruits. But my love for art led me to a degree in Architecture. Just few months after getting my license, I went abroad and lived independently at age 23. Definitely no maid, no cook, and a totally different food culture. Along the way I met lots of friends and spent what seemed a lifetime learning new tricks and recipes.

Now living in Auckland, I am a work-from-home mum who juggles time between work, fun and family - in pursuit of work-life balance. No matter how busy I am, I love the idea of cooking for my family. My blog chronicles home cooking greatly influenced by life outside my home country from Southeast Asia to Beijing and Auckland. And most of the time, being busy also means easy (sometimes quick), affordable meals.

  1. This is my kind of barbeque ( I think I can do this with chicken right?) made from oven not from the grill for I do not like gas grill. I am drooling just by looking at it and is now bookmarked! ^_^

  2. Haven’t done it with chicken but I can imagine it would also be yum. Use the oven by all means. These ribs are oven-baked and oven-fangrilled :D
