Kinilaw na Tuna

Kinilaw by Magat
Today is my Fatther's birthday!!! Happy birthday Pa! The family celebrated his birthday last weekend and as usual, they teased me with all the yummy food he cooked for his birthday. He is the cook in the family. I miss the food that he makes especially the KINILAW or raw fish salad. I think I posted before his recipe on how to make it but I have another recipe here that I want to share from
"Kinilaw na Tuna or raw fish salad is an appetizer dish that is usually consumed as “pulutan”; it is best served along with cold beer. This recipe does not involve any manual cooking but the tuna meat is semi-cooked once served. This is made possible by the acids in the vinegar (acetic acid) and calamansi or lemon juice (citric acid). These mild acids slowly cook the fish meat when soaked for a few hours."
2 lbs tuna; skinned, deboned, and cubed
1  1/2 cup vinegar
3 tablespoons ginger, minced
1 large red onion, minced
2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 cup lemon or calamansi juice
1 to 2 tablespoons red chilies, chopped
1. Place the cubed tuna meat in a large bowl then pour-in 3/4 cups of vinegar.
2. Let stand for 2 minutes then gently squeeze the tuna by placing a spoon on top applying a little pressure.
3. Gently wash the tuna meat with vinegar. Drain all the vinegar once done. This will help reduce the fishy smell.
4. Add the remaining 3/4 cup vinegar, calamansi or lemon juice, ginger, salt, ground black pepper, and red chilies then mix well.
5. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
6. Top with minced red onions and serve (you may also add the red onions with the rest of the ingredients in step 4).
7. Share and enjoy!

Chicken BBQ Pizza

If your kids love pizza, you should try this! This is so easy to prepare. All you have to do is follow the instructions and you can modify or add your own ingredients. I didn't use the spicy BBQ, I used the sweet kind (Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce). I omitted cilantro too and added bacon bits instead. I also used left-over roasted chicken meat. Top it with more cheese!!! I love mozzarella! Below is a recipe from Enjoy!

       1 (12 inch) pre-baked pizza crust
    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
    2. Place pizza crust on a medium baking sheet. Spread the crust with barbeque sauce. Top with chicken, cilantro, pepperoncini peppers, onion, and cheese.
    3. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly.

    Oatmeal Cookies

    Mommies who love to bake must try this oatmeal cookies. My kids and I love oatmeal for breakfast that is why I tried baking this as cookies. I notice that when I buy a pack of ready-to-eat oatmeal cookies in store, my kids just ignore it but when I bake some, they are so excited that they can't wait to eat it. Maybe because they get to help preparing and making it. And when it is done, they can't wait to try what they made. So this sells like pancake! Below is the recipe from




    1. This is a very important first step that makes the cookie: combine eggs, raisins and vanilla and let stand for one hour.
