The best meals are always the ones shared with one’s family. It doesn’t matter where you are as long as you’re with your family, you’re bound to be nourished, physically and emotionally.

Feast shared with a cousin:


Dinner with my father:

An aunt recently gave us a pack of Kielbasa. I did not want to just fry it and eat it as is.

So, I decided to look for a recipe that will showcase Kielbasa. And since I haven’t made pasta in a while I decided to do a pasta dish I found in

Kielbasa and Broccoli Linguine

But, I only had spaghetti so it became Kielbasa and Broccoli Spaghetti. It still turned out pretty amazing. 🙂

Tried a recipe I found in

Meatballs with Tomato Sauce


It’s my first time to make meatballs so I followed it to the letter. Well, except I used pork and not beef. I also added basil and chili salt to the meatball mixture and a few dashes of dried rosemary in the tomato sauce.

Served it with rice.

I love how yummy it turned out. I will definitely make this again. Maybe, serve it over a bed of spaghetti next time. 🙂

Veneto Chicken

Went Italian again tonight with Veneto Chicken.

I was afraid my father would not like it but it was a success, I guess. He said it was yummy.


Got this recipe from:

But (here I go again) changed it up a bit to suit Pinoy taste.

Rubbed the chicken with salt and let it stand for an hour. Also added salt, pepper, chili salt, and dried basil to the flour.

After that, I followed the recipe to the letter except I used tarragon vinegar because I don’t have balsamic vinegar.

Good thing I rubbed the chicken with salt because my father said it would have tasted better with a bit more salt. So, if I hadn’t it would have been very bland to a Pinoy tongue. 😀
