Tilapia Cooked in Vinegar & Spices

Tilapia Cooked in Vinegar & Spices is also known as Paksiw na Tilapia in my country.  This recipe is very easy to make, and so delicious.  I don’t make tilapia cooked in vinegar & spices all the time since my husband cannot handle the smell of the vinegar.  Most of the time I make this dish when he is not home.  By the time he gets home, it’s all done and ready to eat.

Paksiw is a very popular dish in the Philippines, there is a different variation of paksiw recipe.  My favorite, however, is the fish paksiw, you can use any fish you want for this recipe.  Tilapia fish is one of my favorites to cook other than the salmon.  My husband, he does eat the tilapia but the filet, every now and I then I buy fish with the head included, just because I love it that way.

Tilapia cooked in vinegar and spice is very delicious, I love the combination of the flavors. The ginger has a big part to this dish.  As you all may know already, I love using ginger pretty much on everything.  Not only it makes my dish taste good, but it’s also good for our body. Read more

Sauteed White Squash with Sardines

Today recipe is Sauteed White Squash with Sardines.  Such a simple dish to make, and doesn’t require too much of the ingredients.  I just put this together on the last minute since I had no idea what to make for dinner.  White Squash is very popular in my country, I can remember eating them all the time since we have planted some on our farm.  White Squash is known as Upo in my language, this has a softer texture than the regular squash.

You can buy white squash at some international store because I don’t think I have seen our local grocery store with this type of vegetables.  To this recipe, I added a handful of spinach and some spices that I wanted to go with it.  Then I also use two cans of sardines, onions, olive oil, salt, water, and pepper.  I also used fresh parsley, ginger, tomatoes, garlic, and fresh jalapenos (this was optional).   The reason I added the jalapenos, is for it to have a little bit of spice.  Yes, I do love spicy food, but I don’t make them all the time since my husband and daughter don’t like it too spicy.

Beef Mami (Beef Brisket Noodle Soup)

Beef Mami (Beef Brisket Noodle Soup) is something I don’t make all the time.  It’s not that I don’t like it but sometimes I don’t have all the ingredients to create the recipe.  I had beef mami a long time ago back when I was living in Texas.  My friend took me to this little place which I called the china town of Texas.  Just everywhere you turn around there is Asian store.  Beef Mami (Brisket Noodle Soup) is a very comforting soup to have especially during winter.

Although, you can pretty much have this all year around not just in the winter really.  Back when I was living in the Philippines we make soups all the time even it’s super hot outside.  This beef mami (beef brisket noodle soup) doesn’t require so many ingredients.  Most of this recipe is probably already in your fridge or pantry.  This meal is ready for about 30 to 45 minutes, perfect for lunch or dinner meal.

Blue Crabs with Lemongrass

Blue Crabs with Lemongrass is the recipe that I am gonna be sharing with you today. I went to one of my favorite farmers market located in Bufford, Georgia.  Whenever I have time to visit this farmers market I never missed buying some of the food that I need.  I have been sick for the few weeks, so I was in the mood for some seafood.  My husband was very supportive for me to visit the farmers again so I can buy few things.

I bought different kind of fish, vegetables, some Filipino food and then, of course, the crabs.   During my visit, I decided to buy some blue crabs that are alive.  Catching them to put inside the bag was a lot of challenge.  I was trying not to get bit and just to drop them on the floor at the same time.  It has been a long time since I had some blue crabs so I thought why not buy some.

Delicious Deer Meat Lasagna Recipe

This delicious deer meat lasagna recipe is so good, my husband and daughter love it.  Even though I am not able to eat this lasagna due to the gluten.  I’d say I am very pleased with the finished of this dish.  Since we have some deer meat in our freezer that we need to be using.  I decided to make lasagna for my dinner, this dish is quite simple. It probably took me about 40 to 45 minutes total to finish this meal.

If you have been following me for awhile, then you know how much I love cooking using deer meat.  There is a time where I wish I am out hunting during the hunting season.  But unfortunately that would never happen, so what we do is just go to our local meat processor and see if there is unclaimed process meat.   Anyway, back to my lasagna, this recipe doesn’t require much of ingredients.  I pretty much used what I already have in my pantry and fridge.

Honey BBQ Wings is a recipe that I’m gonna be sharing with you today.   I was thinking of making spicy wings but since my daughter will be eating the wings, I decided to make the honey bbq wings.   You will need 12 different ingredients to make this wings.  Not bad right? These wings are really delicious, and so tender it come off the bones just perfect.  Total of wings I used on this recipe is about 32 wings, over 3 pounds I would say.

When my daughter and I went to Walmart today, I saw few wings that were cut already on sale.  So I didn’t hesitate on buying them, I bought 3 packages of small wings. I’d say they are about 1 pounds or so on each package.  Most of the ingredients that I used in this recipe was already in my pantry.  Although I didn’t have bbq sauce I found a substitute for it, which is the ketchup and brown sugar.

Honey BBQ Wings is something that I just came up with because I wasn’t sure how to cook all these wings.  I asked my husband if he wants to eat some wings and he was like oh yeah.  Then I was like you know what I will make some honey bbq wings. Something different that we all going to enjoy. This is a finger licking good wings, definitely perfect to make for game day.  Yeah, this is something that your guest will enjoy while watching games, or even on any gathering.   Read more
