Easy Thai Yellow Chicken Curry

We love curry.  Filipino curry, Japanese curry, Indian curry, Thai curry… There is this lovely Thai restaurant near our house where we go for dinner once in a while and its owner is a friendly man called Jimmy.  He gave us a card that entitles us one free entrée when we go back to his place …

Broken Glass or Cathedral Windows Updated Dec 2014

Last night we watched a musical soiree of my daughter’s school where she performed as part of the Senior Choir and Grade 5 band playing the flute.  The show is not phenomenal as professional shows would be but it was heartwarming to see children trying their hands at various instruments and showing what they can do …

If you are thinking of what siding to prepare for your meat, try this simple recipe.  It’s easy to prepare and my daughter can’t get enough of it, which is good because they’re vegetables! Ingredients: about 300 grams of green beans, trimmed and cut in half (you can use and/or mix it with snow peas …

Pork in Coconut (My version of the Bicol Express)

Draining 2 weeks for me but that’s all done and dusted.  As for all women of the world, life goes on no matter what. Clothes to wash, pets to feed, house to clean and lunchboxes to prepare.  Dinner to cook. With what I have in the cold box and the pantry, here is one that …

I was about to check my emails and  before the page went on to my mails, I caught a glimpse of what was in the news.  One of them was about scientists finding evidence of an apocalypse (that word is so scary!) that happened to a different planetary system that is very similar to ours.  …

Mac’s Spanish Bread

As a child growing up in Manila, I have never been a fan of Spanish Bread.  People around me go gaga over these breads but it just isn’t my cup of tea (or slice of bread heehee).  A few months ago, my sister Anna made some and graciously sent some to us.  As I said, I …

(Super) Simple Bali Pork

I saw this very simple recipe for Bali Pork and had set it aside forgetting all about it until yesterday.  We have just purchased some pork belly and had a full bottle of kecap manis, both of which are the main ingredients for the recipe and decided to give it a go.  It is supposed to …

Chocolate Mousse

It has been really hot the past few days and I have been thinking of what to make for a light dessert that will both cool us down and satisfy our sweet tooth.  Checking my fridge, I saw some cream, some eggs and I know that I had some dark chocolate in the pantry. Hmmmm…. what …

Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters

School holidays.  What to do?  Watch at least one movie.  Not a downloaded one, but a “real” movie lol.  It was a toss up between Smurfs 2, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters and Turbo.  One Direction is definitely not in the list of choices. Percy won because my daughter is into these kinds of stuff, …
