Moussaka



Moussaka is kind of like a lamb & eggplant casserole, or so that's how I think of it. Recently I went to Kokkari and tried their Moussaka. I loved it so much I decided to come home and make my own. Of course, theirs is still like a billion times better than mine.

Balinese Fried Chicken

Fried chicken wings. Who doesn't love fried chicken wings? There are so many variations: barbeque wings, buffalo wings, just plain old wings covered in batter, honey lemon wings, etc. I've always have crispy batter-less wings fried with fish sauce from my mom...because I'm Vietnamese unless you haven't noticed already. That can be the story for another day.

Honey Mint Lamb Chops



I recently bought myself a meat thermometer, and now I am a nonstop meat cooking machine! Before I bought a meat thermometer, I would butcher my meat by over cooking them ALWAYS. Well, not anymore! Okay, to be really honest, I've only used my meat thermometer once, and I'm not really a fan of poking my meat, BUT I have learned how to cook meat properly, so come along and follow me.

Fruit & Yogurt



Despite what it looks like, I've actually been doing a lot of cooking, but my disability* kicked in and prevented me from posting. This "recipe" is so easy that even my boyfriend can make it, and he is the worst cook in the world.

Squid Adobo

squid adobo 2

At the end of last year, I flew to Singapore with my little sister to meet up with my cousin who was going to school there. We flew Philippines Airline and they fed us a lot of adobo. It was either chicken or pork adobo and I must say, the pork adobo is my favorite. I know what you're thinking: airplane food, bleh! It's not "bleh" if it got me curious enough to note that I need to recreate the dish.
