Pineapple Chicken with Coconut Milk

This Pineapple Chicken with Coconut Milk is a recipe I saw from a friend of mine. I’ve never tried combining pineapple and coconut in a dish like chicken. However, I didn’t regret doing it so, because of how delicious it came out.

My husband and daughter love this dish, a matter of fact we all enjoyed it. It took me about 30 – 45 minutes total to finish cooking this dish. As you can see in my video, none of the vegetables is overcooked. The chicken was marinating on the pineapple juice while I was prepping all the veggies.

The reason I marinated the chicken with the pineapple juice, is to give it more flavor. You can pair this dish with rice or eat it by itself. So let’s get this recipe started, shall we? Read more

Teriyaki Shrimp Stir Fry

Teriyaki Shrimp Stir Fry is the recipe that I am gonna be sharing with you today.  Thanks to One Love One Kitchen for guesting here again on my blog.  Teriyaki is something that my husband and kids love to eat.  I am not a big fan when it comes to teriyaki however, I eat teriyaki but not all the time. Teriyaki shrimp is really delicious, if you don’t like seafood, you can make teriyaki chicken, beef or even pork.

What I like about teriyaki is you can load it with a lot of vegetables.  Some chef only adds certain vegetables that they prefer or like.  But when I do cook teriyaki chicken or shrimp I always add different vegetables that way the flavor will be much better.  This teriyaki shrimp stir-fry would be perfect to pair with some brown rice or even quinoa.   Read more

Banana Blossoms With Fish

Today I am sharing you this Banana  Blossoms with Fish recipe.  This recipe is very flavorful and does not require a lot of ingredients at all.  Lately, I was able to visit one of my favorite farmers market in Atlanta. Whenever I’m there I always buy food that I want to make.

Most of the food I buy at this place is fish, the banana blossoms, and other vegetables which I cannot find in any local store near me. Banana blossoms are one of my favorites to eat back when I was a child, so finding them here in the US is a big deal for me. 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.
