ever since i decided to learn how to cook (and i mean really cook and not just fry stuff) this site has really helped me a lot. it's detailed and not that hard to follow and her stories behind her dishes and recipes are really entertaining. when i decided to try my hand out in cooking i went for the simplest dish i know, chicken adobo. i still haven't found out this site yet so i just googled for the recipe, picked one then went for it. well, it didn't turn out the way adobo was supposed to be. so i read up on some tips on cooking and i stumbled upon the pinoycook site. i find her recipe a lot more interesting to do so i tried and yes!!! i had a great adobo =)

adobo is usually chicken cooked in vinegar and soy sauce. potatoes and eggs are sometimes added as "extenders" to the dish. there are many types of adobo. there is pork, eel, gizzards, fish, frogs legs, even vegetables cooked adobo style like string beans and water spinach. you can even have it a bit fiery if you like spicy foods. fiery adobo is also called "adobo diablo".
