Not Sure What to Cook Today? Here Are Recipe Ideas for Every Craving + Mood

There’s nothing better than a day spent in the kitchen, practicing your cooking and baking skills, and sharing prepared dishes with your friends and family! There are tons of moments and moods to cook for—a rainy day at home, for example, calls for warm soups, and a stressful day calls for no-frills comfort food recipes.

While music playlists exist for specific moods you’re feeling, so do “platelists”—a list of recipes created for different types of moments at home. We’ve listed down our favorite platelists that’ll fit any type of mood you’re down to cook and bake for:

1 For lazy, rainy days in.

This Bed Weather platelist takes care of all your rainy day cravings, whether you’re looking for something sweet or savory. There’s Creamy Ginataang Mais for a warm and comforting merienda, and Chompy Cheddar Corn Chowder for kids who love cheese and bacon

2 For when you want to give a twist to a classic dish.

There’s a Boredom Busters platelist for kitchen pros who are looking to update classic dishes! Feeling like your regular recipes need some exciting updates? Try Creamy Pork Steak or Ube Leche Flan for new flavor twists.

3 For when you need to cook for kids.

We’ve got a list of Kids’ Faves! Here’s a platelist for days when you’re looking for fast, simple, and fuss-free dishes to make for the kids. The kids will go crazy over the Creamy Milo Dinosaur as their post-nap merienda, and the Creamy Filipino Spaghetti uses ingredients that are easy to find in the grocery or even ingredients that you may already have lying around the house.

4 For when you’re feeling nostalgic about Lola’s cooking.

Paborito ni Lola lists down all the homey dishes that are often passed down through the family by none other than the queen of the house, Lola! Check out the Ube Halaya or the Creamy Beef Adobo (because Lola has the best adobo, right?) and get cooking!

5 For when you’re feeling adventurous to try something new in baking.

This Baked Delight platelist is every baker’s dream—time to preheat that oven! Find exciting, new recipes to try like a trendy, luscious Ube Tin Cake or a Mocha Mini Cake. Invite your friends and family to join in on the fun and make the experience truly delightful.
