Tips for Economical Cooking at Home

One of the best things that came about during the lockdown is the onslaught of online cooking videos found across all social media platforms. More and more people are honing their culinary skills by experimenting and trying out new recipes in the kitchen. While this is great, it’s always good to keep a few important things in mind, most especially conserving energy and avoiding food waste when preparing meals for the family. 

Here are some useful tips from  Solane, one of the country’s leading LPG solutions provider, on saving energy, time and ingredients in the kitchen:


Get your ingredients ready. Some people tend to prepare the ingredients in the middle of the cooking session while the cooking gas is on. Not only is this a waste of time but also an unnecessary waste of gas. Be sure to prepare all the ingredients ahead of cooking time and put them within your reach as you cook. That way, you don’t need to run around the kitchen to hunt for ingredients, making your cooking time shorter. This will also help you  save cooking gas.

Defrost before cooking. Some of us are probably using our microwave to defrost our frozen food. Doing this consumes a lot of electricity, when our aim is to save money on our bills. Instead of using a microwave, take out frozen ingredients ahead of cooking time, place them on the counter and thaw at room temperature. 

Use low heat as much as possible. If you’re cooking or tenderizing meat by boiling, make sure to cover the pot with the lid and lower the heat as soon as it starts to boil. Leave it simmering until soft and tender. You are making the most of your cooking fuel by doing this.

Choose your burner. The bigger the burner, the more energy or cooking gas is used. When you’re using a small pan to cook, use a smaller burner. But If you have only one burner or your burners are of the same size, turn down the flame as soon as food starts to boil to maximize cooking gas.

Keep your LPG well-maintained. Keep your household safe by turning off the LPG cylinder valves when not in use. Do a regular maintenance check on your stove and LPG tank such as checking if your burners, regulators and hose are clean and functioning well and that the LPG tank is in good working condition. Regular inspection of your stove and  LPG is a good safety and energy-saving practice.  

Cooking at home is great but remember to be practical and smart about it. Save your time, money and maximize your cooking gas by following these easy hacks from Solane. For more information, visit www.solane.com.ph. 06/05/2020 (Bits of Rocks)

A Special Graham 'Buko' Dessert!

As promised, I will share with you my second recipe which I made last Sunday together with my corn flavored maja blanca! This time, let us "feel expert sa dessert.."!

Yup, this is a Graham special dessert! But I made my own! Since everyone of us were popular with the mango dessert using Graham biscuit, in my recipe, I used 'buko'!

Well, let me share with you how I made it!

Preparing All The Ingredients

Mixing All The Ingredients in a Bowl

Of course, prepare all the ingredients! These were the Graham Biscuit (ang bida ng recipe), all-purpose cream, condense milk, and the 'buko' (ang special star ng aking recipe)! And also prepare all the utensils and trays to use!

Mix all these ingredients in a bowl. Stir it well until the all-purpose cream and the condense milk combine as one!

When they were already mixed, start now putting the Graham rectangular biscuits in the tray where you will put the mixture. Shape the rectangular biscuits in the bottom of the tray. These were serve as the baseline!

Crushing the Graham Biscuits

Finished Product! Ready to Put in the Freezer!

Now pour the mixture in the tray where you put the Graham biscuits. Shape it accordingly. This will be your first layer! Afterward, put again another Graham rectangular biscuits on top of the mixture then pour another mixture on it! This is now the second layer! Do it repeatedly until you run out of mixture to pour!

In my case, I came up with three layers. On the very top of my dessert, I put crushed of Graham biscuits. Yup, I patiently crushed the whole Graham biscuits and put it on the very top of my finished dessert!

Now, we already had a so-called special Graham 'buko' dessert! The finished product was put in the freezer to froze!

I love it! This is my sweetest dessert! I was inspired by the same Graham dessert brought by one of my officemate one dinner night! So I made my own (gaya-gaya..haha!)! It was more special than her since I used 'buko'! =)

This Graham 'buko' dessert as well as the corn flavored maja blanca were all made in one Sunday afternoon! Oh, how great was that day! I made two desserts! Wow!

There was no such occasion on that day! I just felt like doing special recipes. So here were the products! Maybe we can tagged that day as The Rock's Sunday Recipe Specials! Haha...! Do you love my products?! See you once again next time for more menus! C",)

My Beef Taco Recipe

It's another yummy post once again! Today, I will share with you another recipe of mine! I was inspired to cook this own recipe when my officemate brought a dish like this in our office. So, I make my own!

After I let you taste my special pasta macaroni, spaghetti de rocky, and choco-gelatin dessert (did I forgot something?), now come and taste my very own...beef taco recipe! Ohh yeah!

These are my ingredients:

A Grind Beef

Red Slices of Tomato

Cabbage Toppings

The Taco Chips

Also part of the ingredients were tomato paste and white onion rings! I just forgot to took a photo of them!

So since our ingredients were complete, let us now start cooking!

The first thing to do is to saute the grind beef in hot cooking oil together with the bits of tiny-chopped garlic. Stir them until the beef turns brownish indicating that it is already cooked. Mixed now the tomato paste into the cooked grind beef. Then put drops of grind pepper, salt, and very little amount of vetsin to it. Taste. Once the taste is ok, remove the cooked beef from the frying pan then put it in your serving bowl.

Now prepare the other ingredients of your beef taco, the raw vegetables! Put them in the other separated plates. With the cooked beef blended with tomato paste, cabbage, tomato slices, white onion rings, and taco chips, our special beef taco is ready to eat!

The taco chip will serve as your plate (but of course you will still put it in a small platito). Put teaspoons of cooked grind beef in your taco chip. Then top it with tomato slices, cabbage, and white onion rings! Now you have your beef taco ready to eat as a snack or a main dish! Yum-yum-yum!

In addition to this, you may also combine a grind pork together with the grind beef to make a beef-pork combo taco! If you want, you may also top a cucumber ring in your taco! But remember that, always use a white onion in your toppings rather than the red one to prevent your breath from smelling bad! Yup red onions are a mere source of bad breaths!

Well, what more can you add?! Do you like my recipe? What other more ingredients you may suggest?! Next time I will share with you more and more recipe from your very own Chef Rocky! At your service...!!! C",)
