Chicken with Bell Peppers and Pineapple

This chicken with bell peppers and pineapple is a very simple recipe yet healthy.  Sometimes I love cooking something that is easy and quick.  I used boneless chicken breast for this recipe, you can also use the chicken strips.  Using pineapple to this recipe definitely add more flavor to the entire dish.  The combination of bell peppers, onions, garlic. ginger and pineapple are just amazing.

If you are using the boneless chicken breast you can cut it into big strips.  However, if you buy the chicken strips that don’t require cutting it’s even better.  It will make your preparation time quicker and faster.   I also use about two cups of water to this recipe.  You will also need a little bit of soy sauce, star anise,  salt, and ground black peppers.

This is perfect to pair with brown rice or even white rice.   If you don’t like eating rice, you can make cauliflowers rice as well, it’s healthier.  I cut the bell peppers the way my chicken is cut that way there is some kind of uniform. When I cook vegetables, I normally don’t overcook them that way I still have the crunchy on the vegetables. Read more

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.

Salmon Head Soup With Sweet Potato Leaves

Salmon Head Soup With Sweet Potato Leaves is so delicious.  It has been awhile since I cook fish head, I think its been about two years.  Yes that long, because the first time I made head fish soup I didn’t really like it.  I don’t know why, but I guess because of the head fish that I bought.  This salmon soup with sweet potato leaves is very healthy and delicious.  I didn’t use any oil, all I did is just boiled some water.

I used sinigang mix and knorr cubes as well, sinigang mix can be found at the Asian market.  The Knorr cubes you can pretty much buy this at any local grocery store.  Salmon soup with sweet potato leaves is very healthy and something that my husband loves to eat.  Even just with the soup with fish on it would be great for his health.  I am trying to make seafood each week because it’s food for all of us.

I was very surprised that my daughter also enjoys the soup, matter of fact she ate with some rice.   You can eat this soup just by itself or you can eat this with rice.   Read more

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.
