Garlic Butter Salmon

I am always looking for good salmon recipes. Especially now that we are entering Lenten season. A keeper!

Beef Pares

From the Yummy PH website. I saw this on my Facebook feed and could not resist trying it out.

Spaghetti Carbonara

Pasta craving + whatever I have in the fridge and pantry = Spaghetti Carbonara. Made with 5 ingredients and yummy!

Pininyahang Manok

Translation – Chicken in Pineapple. This one is a recipe from Panlasang Pinoy again but modified based on my mother-in-law’s. 

Hototay Soup Recipe

I have been making this for my family and friends. Always a hit and now perfect for this super cold day in Canada.

Easy Honey Garlic Chicken

It has ‘easy’ as part of its name and was exactly that. Needs ingredients you probably already have in your pantry. Just need some chicken thighs and you are set.

Pork Dinuguan

A famous dish for non-Filipinos to try to make them feel like they’re in ‘Fear Factor.’

This is a blog for recipes I tried or planning to try. I am not a chef. This is to record and actually try those small pieces of paper I used to hurriedly scribble recipes from friends, HGTV or Food Network shows.
