This is the first pumpkin recipe I’ve ever made. Shocking for some of you, but growing up in the Philippines where pumpkins weren’t easily available, it’s not for me. I’ve never had the urge to buy them or even carve them, but I wanted to change that this year. I’ve inadvertently snubbed it in the […]
I rarely make lists as posts, so consider this a treat.I didn’t even make one for Canada Day! Shame shame. Anyway, if you’re still looking for ideas for the weekend, here are some easy peasy suggestions, ye American neighbors. Summer Strawberry Fro-Yo or Honey Peach Fro-Yo will beat the heat, the ice cream craving and […]
Quick and easy, just marinate and bake tasty chicken fillets!
Garlic + Rhubarb + Chicken Wings? What could possibly be wrong with that? NOTHING, I tell you! This absolutely delicious baked chicken wings flavor combination is a winner. I’m a very picky wing eater and this definitely–easily–tops all the other chicken wings I’ve made. There can only be one reason for this experiment: I had way too many rhubarb stalks stocked up on a night of craving for Hawaiian wings. An unlikely success to me at the time, but here it is, in all its finger-licking glory. Don’t say No before you even try it! :-)
Here’s a quick recipe for pork. It’s nothing complicated, but it’s not so humble in flavors either. The wine tomato sauce is semi-sweet and spicy, thanks to the cayenne pepper. Yummy all over and always good on steamed rice. You can easily use the same recipe for chicken.
Aloha! We’re back from our vacation and we’re slowly easing into reality. The luggage bags are half-unpacked. That in itself, is a great feat. It’s hard to wake up again in hot Arizona, staring at the ceiling and doing rock-paper-scissors to see who needs to get up first (just kidding!!!). We were so spoiled with […]
I could use a bowl of this right now: It shifts from cold to hot here in Vancouver. “Would you like the cold for breakfast? Sweltering heat for lunch? No problem!” That kind of thing. I made this a couple of months ago when Dan and I found some super sweet corn from Whole Foods. […]
I love Chicken Piccata — so much that get it each time when we’re at the Cheesecake Factory. Or Maggiano’s. As much as I like it, I’ve never made it before this. Yup, first time. It’s bound to happen somehow, eh? And I had my Duh Joy! moment when I realized how easy it was […]
One of the question during this week’s “Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader” was: Any number with a power of zero is equals to what? I answered aloud : ONE. I still remember! I’ve retained something after two decades in school. Wow, there’s my shining moment. Haha. My memory serves me better when it […]
