Take your grilling FLAVOR to the next level!

Take your grilling FLAVOR to the next level!

The summer heat outside makes me remember my childhood. This is the time of the year that we usually held our family reunion at a beach  near our town. We usually had barbecue by the beach plus home cooked meals like Morcon, arroz caldo, embutido, pancit bato, puto, etc. All you have to do is name it and for sure my mama will cook it for everyone.

Let me share a childhood secret recipe. So get your grill out and take advantage of the sunny weather!  

“One flaming passion for flavor! One fiery showcase of grilled cuisine!

Here is one of my favorite Grilled dish. 

Grilled Chicken


1 whole chicken  chopped
1 onion, chopped
15 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon salt
6-8 lemongrass bulbs, bruised
1/3 cup Soy Sauce

Mc Cormick Pepper Steak

Preparation method

Prep: 20 mins 
Cooking time: 1 hour 30 mins 
Extra time: 4 hours to 24 hours, marinating

1. Wash the chicken, Clean even the inside part of the chicken and pat dry. Rub the whole chicken, including inside the cavity with chopped onions, garlic, salt, pepper and let marinade in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours to 24 hours.
2. Heat the grill. Take the chicken out of the refrigerator and stuff the chicken in bamboo skewers.
3. Put the chicken in the grill make sure to cooked both sides of the chicken. Add the oil to the leftover marinade sauce and baste the chicken with sauce a couple of times. Check if done already by poking through the inner thigh and if the juices run clear it's done. 

You can pair grilled main dishes with your favorite family recipes, such as potato salad or pasta salad. In our family reunion my mom pays and prepare everything. In your case you can ask everyone ro bring a salad of their choice. Salads make it easy to serve a large, hungry crowd at your family reunion. By assigning parts of the meal to different families, you’re assured of a variety of things to serve, and having something for everyone.

How about you? What grilled dish would you prepare for your Sunday family and/or friends gathering?”

Speaking of grill. McCormick will hold an event that highlights its Grill Mates line.

FUJIDENZO: My Preferred Glass Top Chest Freezer

FUJIDENZO: My Preferred Glass Top Chest Freezer 
Did you know that I used to be a businesswoman long before I started blogging. I used to sell Inihaw na Manok (grilled chicken) in the province. Since I am now residing here in Metro Manila, I am thinking of opening a similar business here. Opening a new business is not that easy so I am considering the idea of a partnership. As I am well-versed with the grilled chicken business, I think it would be wise if I will have a partner with similar interest (cooking) and the financial capacity needed in order to start a small chicken business. 

We will be needing a space of 1-1/2 meters x 1-1/2 meters, at least two helpers, electricity and a sturdy freezer. According to a friend who sells grilled chicken in Legazpi Citythe brand of Freezer that is most appropriate for a chicken business is Fujidenzo. I learned from him that he uses Fujidenzo Freezer because of its dual-function. It can be used as a freezer or as a chiller. Not only does it have a durable design, it also comes with 5 year-warranty on compressor and 2 year-warranty on other parts. You need not worry on after-sales service as there are 100 Fujidenzo service centers nationwide. Plus it's the trusted brand by major businesses like Arce Dairy, Bounty Fresh and King Sue.

Fujidenzo Freezers can also be use for ice cream business. They are available in the following models and capacities:

A. Solid top Chest Freezer 

FC-22 ADF 22 cu.ft. Chest Freezer/Chiller (Dual Function)
