My daughter sent us this superb tasting ready to prepare cappuccino mix.
Made in Indonesia, it comes in two separate packs: (1)the coffee mix and (2)a much smaller sachet which contains the chocolate granules. Judging from the Italian flag type packaging I surmise the choco granules originated from Italy.
I tried to experiment to test how the mix could achieve a superior flavor. For my initial test, I used 1 cup of boiling hot water per packmix and then added the chocolate granules. Ooooh! It was too sweet.
The next time, I used 1 large mug of boiling hot water plus the chocolate granules. Surprise! I got the perfect blend.
Unlike other coffee flavors, even those dispensed by large coffee shops, Tora Bika tastes good even when it is cold.
Upon the request of GFAS, I am reproducing here the Chicken soup recipe from my Mom.
My Mom's good old recipe is a real healthy soup because it requires not the commercially bought chicken but rather native poultry which we usually get from the province. Native chicken is poultry raised without the usual chemical-filled chicken feeds. These are poultry raised in remote provincial backyards, allowed to roam about, scratch their own food and if at all, fed with mountain corn grown also without the usual pesticides.
Yes. Her recipe requires clean and organic ingredients and cooking implements. Tough if you ask me. But that was way, way, way back.
Today, it is very difficult to find these healthy attributes from food ingredients. But anyway, if you can source the following, organic, then we're on to a good start.
What we need:
1 kilo of Native chicken breast and back (Note that natives are usually not plump, unlike commercially sold poultry. We all know why) 3 organically grown ba…
