Sinigang Fried Salmon Belly

It was all because we were at the supermarket yesterday and I saw several beautiful strips of Salmon belly. I was raised in a home where everyone love seafood and vegetables; where Shrimps were served on regular days and crabs and clams were a familiar sight at Sunday lunches.  My siblings and I argued over who gets the last squid, craved for our mom’s Ginataang Tulingan (Tuna in coconut milk) and fought over who deserves to get the head of the Maya Maya (Emperor white snapper), aside from dad who pretty much wins it all the time. My husband is no seafood […]

Pork Cottage Pie for Picky Eaters

Note: This recipe entry was the 2nd place winner in “Pork Savor All-in-One Cooking Challenge.” I married a picky eater so we were bound to have at least one picky eater among our kids, too. When you’re tight on the budget, it’s quite a challenge to come up with healthy dishes that would get a stamp of approval from my hubby and our brood of three. That’s why when I joined the Pork Savor All-in-one seasoning Cooking Challenge, there was no doubt in my mind that the perfect dish to share is Pork Cottage Pie. The basic cottage pie is made up of ground beef, carrots, […]

Stir-fry Chicken with Broccoli

My good friend Michelle Remulla gave me this magazine called The Australian Women’s Weekly cookbooks featuring sensational stir-fries several years ago when we came over their house.

It took me another year before I actually got to try any of the recipes and some of them became meal favorites. This recipe I’m going to share with you was originally published as Chicken and Cashews with broccoli but I don’t really follow […]

No fuss Spanish Sardines Pasta

I’ve been meaning to share something else these past two weeks in light of our 10th year anniversary this month but I haven’t really had the time nor the sanity for my thoughts to come together and finish that particular blog. So instead, I’ve decided to share another one of my husband’s favorite dishes. I got this idea from a friend of mine, Deedee, who is currently serving as a missionary in Africa. She posted a picture of their simple dinner and mentioned “sardines” which got me thinking of how great it would be to rip off the idea and […]

Easy-to-prepare Taco Bowls on laid back Sundays

I love tomatoes which is probably why I fell in love with Tacos. Just the thought of those ripe tomatoes packed with white onions and beef is enough to make me drool. I’ve been seeing a lot of recipes being shared by fellow mommies and WAHM-ies, and since I love preparing food for my family and friends, I thought I would share my own favorite recipes at least once a month starting with one of our favorite Sunday quick-to-prepare meals: Taco Bowls. Sunday is special for me and Jay. It’s not quite a completely free day as my hubby works […]
