GREAT SUMMER COOLER!
"Filipino Tan #1"(The Manila Bay)
1 cup brewed coffee preferably not instant
1/2 to 1 cup creme or half and half
3 heaping tbsp coffee mate (optional)
3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1/3 to 2/3 cup chocolate milk syrup
1 tsp finely powdered coffee
Take all the ingredients and stick them in a blender.
Set the blender on whip for about 15 to 30 seconds or
until well blended. At this point you have a number of
options. You can place the drink in the fridge for 30
minutes, pour over ice cubes, shave some ice sno-cone
style and mix the ice and drink, or you can dump between
6 to a dozen ice cubes in the blender and set the blender
to chop or puree until the ice is blended with the drink.
If you choose the last option, you may want to increase
your ingredients because as the ice melts, it will make
the drink bland.
Tan #2 (Filipino Twilight): instead of brewed coffee, use
cappuccino and top with whipped cream.
Tan #3 (Magandang Gabi): instead of brewed coffee, use
expresso...double brewed.. and top with whipped cream.
Vary the amounts of each ingredient and create your own tan!
1/2 cup pureed cantaloupe
1/2 cup pureed mango
1/2 cup pureed papaya
1/2 cup pureed strawberries
1/4 to 1/3 cup rum (optional)
12-18 ice cubes
This is so easy. Take the strawberries pureed in a blender with
four to six ice cubes and crush the ice. DON'T LET THE ICE MELT!
put the mixture in a tall glass until the glass is 1/4 full. Do
the same with the others in this order: Strawberries, papaya,
mango, cantaloupe. If you pour slowly and do it right you got a
sunset. If you like rum, add 1 part to each 4 parts of the fruit
blends per layer. In other words, pour strawberry then add 1/8 cup
A small section for cooking chicken which is very versatile and
my favorite food. Try them out or make your own and e-mail it to

I have so many variations on this it's amazing. The taste for
each is really up to you because you can adjust each to suit your

2 tablespoons salt*

1 tablespoon onion powder
1/2 package of tamarind soup base mix
4 large eggs
1/4 cup lemon juice
4-6 pieces of chicken drumsticks, thighs, etc.

You can find the tamarind mix in any asian grocery store. Take
all the dry ingredients and whisk them together in a medium bowl.
Put that aside. Whisk together the eggs and the lemon juice. This
will be your egg wash. Take a piece of chicken and put it in the
egg wash, until well coated then place it in the dry mix coating
it well. Then dip it in the wash again and in the dry mix again.
this will ensure that the chicken stays moist. Repeat with the
other pieces. Discard any remaining dry mix. Coat a shallow
baking pan with olive oil. Place the chicken about 1 inch from
each other in the pan. Preheat the oven to 375°. Bake for 30
minutes to one hour (ovens vary) or until juices run clear when
poked through center with toothpick. Turn pieces twice during
If you prefer, you can fry the chicken in a pan. If you do, put
only enough oil to cover the chicken halfway. DO NOT FRY IN A
DEEP FRYER!!! This will cause the chicken to be underdone inside
and scorched outside. Fry over medium heat covered for 15
minutes. Then turn the pieces and fry uncovered until juices run
If you enjoy finger food, you can take skinless chicken breasts
and cut them into strips. Then follow the above directions
reducing the cooking time accordingly.
Instead of using the tamarind mix, you can use one envelope of
ranch dressing mix, or italian dressing mix, or even beef stew
mix! Hey! Be spontanoeus and inventive! Take portions of all of
the above and throw it together! Oh the possibilities are
