Recipe: Seafood Pasta

It’s been so long since I’ve posted a recipe here on my blog! In fact, the last recipe I posted was during the holiday season. It’s been that long. I’m still not a pro in the kitchen but I believe I have a better understanding and taste palette a year ago. Without further ado, here’s my version of Seafood Pasta!

Recipe: Homemade Lechon

I love Lechon. I sincerely thank the Philippines’ Spanish colonizers for bringing this to our lovely little island home. Lechón is a pork dish in several regions of the world, most specifically Spain and its former colonial possessions throughout the world. The word lechón originated from the Spanish term lechón, referring to a suckling pig that is roasted I’ll admit, I was staying away from food like this this holiday season but when my mom said she was making this, I had to eat it. This recipe is by my mom and the only reason why I’m sharing this on my blog is for future reference. #goals

Recipe: Easy Hainanese Chicken

If you knew me and you followed this blog since its conception last year, you’d never ever ever believe that I could cook something like Hainanese Chicken. I couldn’t believe it myself but get ready to shock yourselves for the easiest Hainanese Chicken recipe ever. I would just like to include that this recipe is my version to the million of other Hainanese Chicken recipes out there. I researched a lot before finally deciding it was time to cook it.

Recipe: Asian Green Mussels

Today’s simple recipe came to life the day my mom decided to leave the house. I was extremely tired that day and just wanted to rest but life, as usual, had other plans. Here in the Philippines we have this seafood called tahong. In English, its called Asian Green Mussels. Yes, I didn’t know what it was called in English so I had to Google it. 😛 Okay, enough ramblings.

KyoChon Round 2 // Eastwood Eats

Inspired by my previous post for Kyochon, Mike and I decided to eat there again. We found out that they have a new addition to their menu, bulgogi! It has other flavors but Mike and I opted for the safe yet yummy Soy Bulgogi. Here comes the really embarrassing part, I couldn’t figure out for the life of me what I ate! I don’t know if it was chicken, soy or beef. (FACE PALM)  It was so good I really didn’t bother asking what it was. I think that’s good though. It was such a hit for me I just finished it. 🙂
