Sweet Chili Fried Pork Chops

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 ...

Quick & Easy Pork With Cauliflower, Green Beans, And Napa Cabbage Stir-Fry

I love green beans. My husband loves cauliflower. I love pork. I think he does too or he just learned to tolerate my love for pork. I like stir-fry. My family didn't have a choice but to like stir-fry, HAH! If there's napa cabbage in the vegetable crisper, well hey, add it to the stir-fry too.

Spicy Pork & Green Peppers Stir-Fry

When I made this Spicy Pork & Green Peppers Stir-Fry, I was actually trying to recreate the peppery beef and green peppers stir-fry that Scott likes to order whenever we have the occasional Chinese food take-out. With the obvious changes of course. I used pork instead of beef and I made it spicier because I was in a everything-must-be-spicy-kick around the time I made this. Well it turns out, I forgot one thing. The ground ...

Spicy Crab & Green Beans Stir-Fry

I've mentioned before how much I love green beans. I love it so much I should just create its own category in this blog, HAH! My husband is getting tired of green beans but that's fine because that means I'll have more green beans for myself. Since he doesn't like green beans as much as I do I mostly make a stir-fry dish for lunch for me. Like this Spicy Crab & Green Beans Stir-Fry. ...

Pork With Carrots & Napa Cabbage Lo Mein

I think Lo Mein has been my go-to dish to make when I'm craving for pasta but not necessarily with the Italian flavors. It's the Asian in me, I guess?

My Lo Mein dishes are a fusion of my 2 favorite cuisines, Italian and Asian.   Recipe: PORK WITH CARROTS & NAPA ...

Meatless Monday: Veggie Lo Mein

This Veggie Lo Mein which is perfect for Meatless nights was actually created because I was getting rid of the extra vegetables from the crisper.

It was definitely a delicious way of getting rid of leftover items from the fridge to make room for new ones. And quick too.   Recipe: Veggie Lo Mein Ingredients 2 cloves of garlic, chopped 1/2 ...

Roast Duck For Christmas

This past Thanksgiving Scott suggested to try out duck for our Christmas dinner. I was all over the idea since the few times I had duck I remember it being good and it will be a new experience for me to cook a whole one that of course leads to a new foodblogging subject. As the phrase goes or whatever, everything has a purpose. Scott saw the frozen whole ducks in Walmart back in November but ...

Meatless Tuesday: Veggie Dumplings/Potstickers With Homemade Dough

Whenever I make dumplings or potstickers I usually use either ground beef or pork. I was craving for something different so I decided to make a vegetable version. For another twist, instead of using wonton wrappers I opted to make my own dumplings dough. I've discovered that I actually prefer homemade dough. Store-bought wonton wrappers are very convenient but if you have time, I suggest you try making your own. Homemade potstickers dough has a ...

Sesame & Sweet Chili Tilapia Bites

Trust me when I say the dish in the bowl involves Tilapia. I can't blame you though if you thought it's sesame chicken. The inspiration came from the latter but it's really fish you're looking at in that picture. When I took out the tilapia fillets to make for dinner last night I really didn't want to do anything breaded and the usual pan-fried way. I wanted to make something new. That's when I thought of ...
