And anytime I can get dinner ready with minimal effort, I’m all about it! Drum roll please…..enter this amazingly fragrant and delicious Slow Cooker ChickenRead more

Filipino Chicken Adobo

If you’re from the Philippines or know someone from the Philippines, then you know all about Chicken Adobo! The term adobo comes from the Spanish word adobar, meaning marinade. And this marinade is always made with soy sauce, vinegar, and garlic. Simple, yet scrumptious.  What I love so much about Chicken Adobo isn’t just the fact that it was my favoriteRead more

Asian Salmon

Today’s post is a weeknight dinner champ at our house: Asian Salmon! It’s a total lifesaver for those nights that I JUST. CAN’T. EVEN. You know what I’m talking about….long day, you’re tired and hungry, and all you want to do is get some take-out. Don’t do it! If you’re prepared with the ingredients (aside fromRead more

Halo-Halo (Filipino Dessert)

Today’s post gives me all sorts of nostalgia. Growing up, I didn’t have Halo-Halo often, but when I did….man, was it a treat!

Cauliflower Fried Rice

Let me state the obvious: I’m from the Philippines and I love rice. Rice (specifically white Jasmine) is a staple and is served at almost every Filipino meal. Growing up I remember eating it almost every night, and never thought twice about it. Sometime around high school we switched to brown rice, which was ourRead more

Filipino Pork Sisig Tacos

I loooooove tacos. I’ve talked about my love for tacos before (check out my post on Fish Tacos). They’re such a crowd-pleaser, they’re delicious, and more importantly, they’re generally easy to make. But I’m always looking for different combinations to make. And I’ve recently noticed there is a trend of Asian-inspired taco trucks and also Asian-Mexican fusion restaurants.Read more

Hawaiian Garlic Butter Shrimp

A little over a year ago Ryan and I took the most amazing trip to Oahu, Hawaii. I’m lucky enough to have one of my best friend’s live there (hey, Lo!) so it was the perfect excuse to make the trek 🙂 And we’re so glad we did – it’s hands down one of our favoriteRead more

Filipino Lumpia

As one holiday ends another holiday is coming up, and that means more food! Growing up, New Year’s Eve always involved a very elaborate dinner spread, including some type of pancit (noodle) dish (to represent a long and happy life in the new year), twelve types of fruit (one for each upcoming month), and alwaysRead more

Sweet & Spicy Asian Wings

I really love this time of year – the crisp air, vibrant colors of leaves, and of course Thanksgiving is hard to beat. November is also the month I was born and the month I got married so there’s plenty to be excited about! But I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention another fall favoriteRead more
