I’m sure I can’t be the only one who dilutes condensed milk and drinks it! It’s a childhood tradition. I haven’t tried making pastillas ever, so maybe this is the time? I heard that pastillas sounds easy to make as it’s just milk powder and condensed milk and sugar (plus some other ingredients), but getting the consistency right is hard. To get it to that firm but chewy consistency is apparently hard, and that’s why grandmothers go to great lengths to keep their recipes a secret passed down from generation to generation.
My cholesterol still needs to be kept in check but I’m so excited to be making carbonara, mac and cheese (yes i will still add cream onto cheese), and of course truffle pasta with this.
And yes, early stocks for the summer! Lotsa possibilities with iced beverages. I really need to find our automatic ice crusher because it’s so hard to do it manually! But it’s so exciting to make mais con hielo, buko pandan ice slushie, and simplified halo halo (I want to indulge right away so it needn’t be complicated). I’m also eyeing making sopas as the rainy days approach.
The interesting thing about Alaska? They have this whole website called the Red Kitchen Network and it’s filled with all sorts of recipes we can try! I love it when Pinoy brands do recipe websites, because the ingredient lists are sane. It’s hard to find a recipe online only for it to be asking for so many things that can only be found in the US or UK.
