While love for food is universal, another thing that most people can relate to is the state of dilemma that tends to take over upon entertaining the question, “Ano kayang kakainin ko ngayon (what should I eat today)?” Whatever you’re feeling — whether you’re down for some comfort food for staying in or wanting an energizing power meal to kickstart your week — there’s a meal for every kind of mood.
Good thing NESTLÉ All Purpose Cream’s website — www.createwithcream.ph, created “PLATELIST”. The first curated recipe list based on moods, moments or even trends — from the simplest “bed weather” mood, the much celebrated “birthday bash” occasion and even the nostalgic “Batang 90’s Mix”, each PLATELIST offers the perfect recipe collection that will definitely inspire anyone to prepare home-made dishes.
Check out these Platelists to see which one fits your mood:
1. Bed Weather
Is the weather perfect for sleeping in and just having some much-needed R&R in bed? Are you ready to Netflix and chill the day away? A comforting soup could be just the perfect companion like this Chompy Cheddar Corn Chowder. You can easily prepare it in one pot with fresh milk, all-purpose cream, creamed corn and corn kernels. Add in some cheddar cheese and crispy bacon and you’ll have the best comfort food for sleepy weather.
Any win, however small — finishing work deliverables on time, a painless commute home, not spending past your budget — deserves to be celebrated. A simple way to do that is by enjoying a delectable treat like this Avocado Graham Float that’s easy to make and easier to finish off. With a rich layer of whipped cream and avocado, finished with some buttery avocado slices and candied pili or cashew nuts on top, this sinfully delicious dessert will be just what you need to savor your everyday victories.
3. Boredom Busters
Do you have some extra time on your hands and are you itching to get creative in the kitchen? To battle boredom, get busy to create excitement in the kitchen by making simple, easy food extraordinary. Take the well-loved Pinoy classic, fruit salad, and give it a creamy twist by making Fruit Salad Ice Cream! Simply puree fruit salad and condensed milk together, whip all purpose cream until it can form stiff peaks, and fold together. For best results, freeze overnight.
4. Don’t Stress
Just coming off of a hectic week? Looking for the perfect treat to indulge in? A sweet and refreshing dessert is the way to go — after all, “stressed” spelled backwards is just “desserts”. Try making this Cookies and Cream Ref Cake to satisfy your sweet tooth. Made with crushed cookies and fluffy whipped cream, this elegant cake creation is guaranteed to hit the right spot.
5. Going Green
If you’re looking for opportunities to add some green into your diet, this Crunchy Craving Caesar Salad is a fun and yummy way to do it. Taking on a classic Caesar salad recipe but with added tweaks like some cream and mayo in the dressing, this salad creation will make you forget it’s a healthy dish. Creamy and savory dressing on a bed of crisp, fresh veggies? Make way for your brand-new craving.
6. Movie Night
Your movie marathon deserves a blockbuster snack to go with — and you can’t go wrong with this Pizza with Cream Sauce! A warm, cheesy, and creamy take on this favorite Italian comfort food, this variation’s sauce is made with butter, all-purpose cream, garlic, onion, and butter. Drizzled over seasoned tomatoes on pizza bread, and topped with mozzarella and parmesan, this is guaranteed to be your new favorite movietime snack!
7. Rise and Shine
What’s a better way to start your day than with a hearty and delicious breakfast? Make a rich, tantalizing Banana Stuffed French Toast for you and your family and get the day rolling. Using a sweet banana and brown sugar mixture stuffed into batard, plus a creamy batter made of eggs and all-purpose cream, this recipe is sure to be the star of your breakfast spread. Top with more cream and melted chocolate sauce!
8. Romantic Nights
If you’re looking to woo your significant other, there’s nothing more romantic than a home cooked meal. Impress your loved one with your cooking prowess by making this Salted Egg Shrimp Pasta. This seemingly complicated dish is actually pretty simple to make — all you need is grated salted egg, chili flakes, garlic, onion, and all-purpose cream to make the sauce. Then, just toss them together with seasoned shrimp and cooked spaghetti noodles. Your date will definitely be wanting seconds.
