These responsibilities include all the house chores such as cleaning the house, taking care of your siblings and also cooking. But if there’s one thing I want to do about acting like a parent at home , it is to cook meal for the family.

At an early age, I learned how to cook for my family. My mom taught me how to prepare and how to make different dishes. The first dish I learned was how to cook nilagang baka. Nilagang baka is a Filipino recipe served with a special soup and vegetables in it. It’s very easy to prepare and cook. If you might be interested to know on how to prepare this menu, I will be glad to teach you how.

Here are the things you will need and prepare:
