The Philippine Star
***the other article was all about reflections only so i just have to share the cooking part..hehe***
"We had a househelp,but she didn't know how to cook.So,Iwould experiment with cooking.That's how I discovered I could cook pala."
The recipe for tuna she shares today is her diet fish."I guess ang mga mahilig magluto ay mga taong mahilig kumain.Basta marunong kang manggisa,you can learn how to cook.Nag-uumpisa naman sa gisa lahat eh.(I guess people who love to cook also love to eat.As long as you know how to saute,you can learn how to cook.Everything starts with just a little sauteing.)"
Someone gave her a cookbook and she followed the recipes there.She feels very proud to have been able to bake lasagna the first time she followed the recipe.She also makes delicious French toast.Her sister Dianne adds,"Masipag si Ate magluto.When we were single pa,we had dates,like we would go malling,and we would ask Ate to cook,and magaagawan kami sa mga niluluto niya(we would make a grab for her cooking)."However, REgine normally does not follow recipes and cooks by taste,so she just gave us the ingredients and procedures,giving Philippine STAR readers leeway on how to personalize the recipes according to their individual tastes.Happy cooking!
