I’m quite fond of pairing up pork chops with fresh fruits sauteed in a little bit of butter. The natural sweetness from the fruits, like apples and peaches, gives that caramelized flavor enhanced with a bit of salt and pepper as seasonings. The traditional way of serving pork chops with...

This colorful and delicious green beans and cherry tomatoes salad was inspired by Food Network’s Giada De Laurentiis green beans salad recipe. While she also had wax beans (yellow) for an added color, I only used green beans and cherry tomatoes to keep it simple for the kids. The dressing...

This Zucchini Sautéed In Butter & Dried Herbs side dish is hardly a “recipe” but I’ve decided a few months ago that I will be better at sharing simpler dishes in my foodblog since that’s my mantra around here after all. I for one have a hard time coming up...

The last time I went to the local farmer vendor I only spent $13. This weekend I spent $16.50 but that’s only because of the jar of apple butter. If it wasn’t for that I would’ve just paid $11. Nevertheless, under $20 for the whole thing is still a very...

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...

I mentioned before that I love fresh corn, right? I’ll say it again, I love fresh corn. They’re perfect as boiled or grilled for grilled meat entries. Or chucked in kernels to cook in lots of butter. Or combined with black beans as a salad dish.

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...

Last Saturday, our neighbor Miss Peggy gave us a bag of frozen pork bbq. It’s basically the southern shredded pork bbq that she stored in the freezer for future consumption and she was so nice to share some with us. All I had to do was thaw ‘em out and...

Yah know, I actually like cabbage but I don’t cook with it that often. Unlike the napa cabbage or bok choy which I always use for stir-fries. The regular cabbage?, not the much. Mostly when we’re having corned beef brisket or the once every 3(or 5) years stuffed cabbages which...

My husband teased me when he saw this plate of Asparagus with Bacon because usually, bacon is only a sprinkle. This time around, the bacon is overwhelming. I guess I went overboard when I started chopping the bacon.

I’ve always wanted to try Kale and find out how it tastes. I’ve read and heard how it’s one of the most, if not THE most nutritional green leafy vegetable out there. Late last year I started feeling dizzy out of nowhere so my husband suggested that I should...
