So I finally made that Tortang Talong that I was craving for a month ago but was too lazy to make. Not only did I labor over making 1 tortang talong, I dressed it up too by adding cutup leftover lemon-pork.Read More

There were a couple of leftover pan-fried breaded Swai fillets the other day so I decided to warm it up, sliced it diagonally then laid it on top of a bed of mixed greens for a healthy and hearty lunch.Read More
I had one eggplant left from the local produce vendor loot so I figured I’d cook it up before it goes bad. I really don’t know why I saved that 1 eggplant when I made the pork, green beans, & eggplant curry stir-fry. I was actually craving for tortang talong which I haven’t had in a looooong time that I can’t even remember the last time I ate some. However, I felt a bit silly grilling 1 eggplant, and then peeling the skin off, then beating an egg, and frying it up. It’s easy to make but I didn’t feel like doing all that stuff. Plus, I just finished doing a hardcore cardio workout courtesy of TurboFire 55 so let’s just I wanted food at that moment and I wanted it fast and furious.

Another best way to use up leftover chicken besides making a sandwich filling or adding into fried rice, is to make soup. And not just chicken soup with vegetable but a chicken and pasta soup using Corabella Tortelloni(classic four cheese) pasta. So delish and so filling that’s perfect for those rainy days or when you’re not felling well.

Food Lion had a buy-one-get-one-free sale on their rotisserie chicken that other day. They were cooking the new batches for the end of the day so the chicken that were cooked earlier in the day had to be put in the cold area to preserve and sell. We were actually going to wait a few more minutes for the new batches but the salesclerk said the already cooked yet cold chicken are on sale. BOGO she said so I was like yah know, That’s $5.99 for 2 whole Rotisserie Chicken. I could easily warm it up in the oven or in the microwave.
As soon as we got home, I turned the oven on to warm up the bbq flavored whole chicken while I put the groceries away. Let me just say that we tore that up for dinner. Poor chicken didn’t see it coming. The next day, I decided to use a portion of the other whole chicken(the free one) to make a filling for a hearty sandwich.

I’ve been trying to eat more salad these past few months as part of my healthy diet. I actually do love salads and when I opt for a bowl for dinner, I make sure I still add a bit of protein in it. Like when we had London Broil. While everyone ate the steak as is with a couple of side dishes, I sliced my share then added ‘em in a bed of organic mixed greens then drizzled light raspberry vinaigrette all around. It was sooo good. It helps when the steak is perfectly cooked.

I had a leftover piece of steak which was actually my piece but didn’t eat coz I wasn’t hungry when dinner time came. My husband let me have a bowl of ice cream with him though after he ate his dinner that night, hehe. I decided to cut up the steak in small pieces 2 days after to make fried rice. I also had leftover peas from the night we had stuffed meatloaf so all I needed was cooked rice, an egg, garlic, onions and the seasonings.
Frittata is one of the Family’s favorite for weekend brunch. I’ve made potato & bacon frittata, corned beef hash frittata and sometimes I used leftover meat or seafood from the night before as part of the filling.
Here’s a salmon tomatoes and scallions frittata from the leftover pan-fried salmon.
Finding an easy way to make Siopao was an accidental feat while perusing The Pioneer Woman’s Tasty Kitchen portal a few months ago. I was just surfing around the site really. Until I saw one of the recent headlines which said “Siopao W/ Sassy Sauce” from blogger Skwishface. In the beginning of the recipe there was a note about excessive step-by-step photos so I went to the original post to see the pictures coz I love recipes with a lot of pictures . So from there on I learned how to make siopao so easily that I could make it with my left eye closed. Well maybe not but you’ll see what I mean when you read this whole thing.Read More
