I love to make food and eat food! Let’s talk about recipes, new discoveries, our personal connection to food, and more.

Creamy Pasta With Truffle Oil and Prosciutto

It’s been a while since I made some pasta dinner at home, but a recent craving called for some creamy truffle pasta, which I decided to top with prosciutto. A glass or two of wine may have been consumed with it too. For this recipe, you need some pantry staples…

Salmon Baked in Foil

If you have yet to enjoy the benefits of baking in foil, now is the time. This salmon dish turned out so moist and so flavorful I might just make baking in foil my go-to method for preparing my favorite fish. The foil helps lock in moisture and flavor, resulting…

Omelette Tortilla Breakfast Rolls

Even though I’m not much of a breakfast person, I do enjoy my brunch — and having breakfast food for brunch. Two of my favorites: definitely omelettes and wraps. I often make omelette wraps as they’re always so satisfying and filling, but this time, I thought I’d vary it a…

Roasted Chicken and Chickpeas

Thanks to a friend’s recent suggestion, I decided to incorporate more chickpeas into my meals. I usually just use them whenever I make hummus, but chickpeas are definitely more versatile than that. So for a recent dinner, I thought I’d roast them along with my protein. I’m a big fan…

Wagyu Beef Bulgogi Noodles

There are days when I want something quick and easy but am not really keen on ordering delivery or takeout. Usually, I look at what’s in the fridge and the pantry, and I try to come up with something simple but satisfying. A few days ago, I was wondering what…

Maruya (Banana Fritters)

There are good problems to have, like a surplus of fruit for example. In our case, we have ripening saba bananas waiting to be enjoyed. Last week, I made minatamis na saging (sweetened banana in brown sugar syrup). This week, I decided to revisit a childhood favorite I haven’t had…

Baked Salmon

There’s joy in looking back. Just recently, I was reminded of my first baked salmon. Oh boy, was I proud. What seemed like a highly intimidating dish turned out to be very achievable. And in no time, I was making it from memory. Salmon, probably my most favorite fish, is…

Lemon Garlic Baked Tilapia

I’ve been having a lot of fun with my meals lately. To complement my indoor training plan, I have been cooking up dishes that increase my protein and reduce my carb and sugar intake. I’m of course being careful not to fall into the diet mindset once again. This isn’t…

Banana Bread

I don’t know about you, but when I hear “banana bread,” I’m instantly taken back to the early days of the pandemic when everyone was stuck at home and learning how to cook and bake. Out of nowhere, banana bread became the quintessential quarantine food. It was, unsurprisingly, one of…

Chicken and Mushroom Tomato Pasta

Having a busy schedule with barely enough time to prepare your own food can often mean consuming a considerable amount of takeout and delivery meals. While these are a nice treat now and then, constantly ordering in or eating out, even with its convenience, can become repetitive, costly, and unhealthy.…

Creamed Chicken

I still have a number of recipes lined up to share here, a backlog from the past couple months that I was a tad busy to sit and write. This one in particular is from a dinner we hosted at home last April. Along with this Creamed Chicken dish, we…

Pork Asado

Good things take some time, just like a winning serving of sweet and tender pork asado. While I still think my father’s take on the dish is the best one I’ve had so far, my own version is still something I can be proud of. Consulting other recipes (including my…

Cheesy Spinach Mashed Potatoes

I’m the kind of eater who needs to vary her meals. I’m not above leftovers, though I do prefer to not eat the same thing consecutively. I also like to play around with my veggies, proteins, and carbs so that I get to experience different flavors, textures, and pairings whenever…

Honey Beef Strips

I have to say—my boyfriend’s becoming quite the chef. One day, he decided to make honey beef strips and when I tried them, I liked them so much that I requested he make the dish again soon. And he did, and I was stuffed. So I’d like to share his…
