Sweet Chili Fried Pork Chops

I love sweet chili sauce. I use it as a dip for lumpias/egg rolls, sometimes as the sauce base for stir-fry, a marinade, and my favorite and easy way of enjoying it is a sauce to coat with either chicken wings, fish nuggets, or pork chops. Recipe: Sweet Chili Fried Pork Chops Ingredients 4-5 pieces medium pork chops 1 1/2 cup of flour 1½ tsp of salt 1 tsp of black pepper 1 tsp of paprika 1 tsp of chili powder oil for ...

No-Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake

For our Thanksgiving dessert, I went for the No-Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake instead of the usual baked pumpkin cheesecake with dulce de leche topping. I just wanted to try the cheesecake prepared in a different way and in a way compare which is better. Baked or No-Bake? After having been tried the no-bake version I think I'll go back to baking my cheesecake next year. Don't get me wrong, the no-bake cheesecake was good and easier ...

Christmas Wish List: Fondue Set

While I was organizing my pantry when we first moved into our new home I somehow broke the pot of my fondue set. I calculated my movement wrong which I'm usually good at when reaching for stuff on higher shelves but not that day apparently. So I have been without a fondue pot now. I really miss having our chocolate fondue and cheese fondue nights. Since Christmas is upon us, why not start a Christmas ...

Our 2016 Thanksgiving Feast

LATE POST: I finally have time to share our Thanksgiving feast this year which was spent with my brother-in-law's family same like last year. Pardon my lack of perfectly styled pictures because the reality is, when we're all together and we're all ready to eat there's just really no time to make everything pretty for pictures. Nevertheless, everything was delicious. Super easy turkey seasoning. I went with creole butter this year. I usually rub butter on ...

Bacon & Bleu Cheese Frittata

Scott was originally going to make bacon and bleu cheese omelet this past Saturday but along the way we agreed that bacon and bleu cheese frittata would be even better.

Out of all the frittatas I've made so far, this is the best one yet!   Recipe: Bacon & Bleu Cheese Frittata Ingredients 4-5 pieces of ...

Pork Sotanghoon Noodles With Carrots And Snow Peas

This Pork Sotanghoon Noodles With Carrots And Snow Peas was my comfort food last week. I wanted to drink but it was still a weekday and as much as I love wine, believe it or not, I'm capable of waiting until Friday night. Or at least Thursday night since it was a 3-day weekend for everyone here. Anyway, I already have a few sotanghoon/pancit recipes here but here's one more if you need another with ...

Funnel Cakes From Funnel Cake Kit

https://www.instagram.com/p/BMeXdOoDoT6/ I found this Funnel Cake Kit at Walmart for $7.88. I was just really pointing at it to my husband but he grabbed and put it in the cart fast than you can say funnel. He insisted I said 'I want one' when what I really said what, 'oh look Babe a funnel cake kit.' He Said She Said, basically. Who really wanted to eat funnel cake so badly he supposedly heard his wife say ...

Chorizo & Green Peppers Fried Rice

Didn't I tell you I'm obsessed with chorizo before? I remember mentioning that in the ZUCCHINI BOATS WITH CHORIZO & MOZZARELLA CHEESE dish back in July.

Cooking with Your Fire Pit Table

If you have a fire pit or fire pit table, you've probably already flexed a bit to see what kind of entertaining and cooking you can do with it. There are some obvious cooking choices such as smores, hotdogs, and grilled steak, but you're really only limited by your imagination and the utensils you have on-hand.
