It’s always fun to try out new recipes. But it’s more fun to do adjustments on a recipe you’ve never tried and make it your own, especially if you have absolutely know idea how it’s going to turn out.

So, let’s night, that’s what I did to an egg noodle recipe I found online. As is my usual approach, I had to make adjustments as some ingredients will make the dish expensive.

I made my adjustments and hoped for the best.

Chinese Egg Drop Noodle Soup (Original recipe here)




2 chicken broth cubes, dissolved in 4 cups of hot water
1 cup water
1 teaspoon soy sauce
2 tablespoons grape juice
1 piece ginger, sliced thinly
2 cloves garlic
1 can Purefoods’ Sexy Chix (Hainanese flavor), drained
1 stalk Taiwan Pechay
4 rolls dried egg noodles
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 to 2 scallions, thinly sliced
1 1/2 teaspoons sesame oil

1. Bring broth, water, grape juice, ginger, and garlic to a boil. Remove ginger and garlic.
2. Stir in chicken chunks. Simmer for 2 minutes.
3. Stir in noodles and simmer for 4 minutes. Stirring soup in a circular motion.
4. Add pechay. Simmer for 1 minute.
5. Add eggs and simmer for 1 minute.
6. Remove from heat. Stir in scallions and sesame oil.


It has been a while, and I do mean a while, since I last posted one of my kitchen adventures but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been doing my magic in it. 🙂

So, here’s what I made for dinner tonight.

Pan-grilled Chicken Fillet


This was inspired by a fish fillet Greek dish  I tried a while back. Click here to be directed to my previous post.

For anyone who would like to try my recipe, here it is:



6pcs chicken thigh fillet
6 tbps Olive oil
2 pcs lemon, squeezed
8-10 cloves of garlic
Salt and pepper
Dried thyme
Dried rosemary
Dried basil leaves

1. Pound the chicken fillet to get a more uniform thickness to get an even cook.
2. Mix olive oil, lemon juice, and garlic in a container.
3. Mix salt, pepper, and the dried herbs in another container.
4. Rub herb mixture on chicken fillet and mix the rest of the rub with the oil mixture to make marinade.
5. Blend marinade well and pour over the chicken fillet.
6. Marinate and refrigerate chicken for at least an hour.
7. Grill on medium-heat for 8-10 minutes or until chicken is done.


I apologize for not giving exact measurements on the herbs as I kind of do those by feel, but I hope your chicken would turn out as delicious as mine.

Really? Just three?

Chicken Bacolod

Question of the Day: What was the last restaurant you went to?

Chicken Bacolod.

It’s local a restaurant that serves chicken that is supposedly cooked inasal way, an art of cooking chicken that originated in Bacolod. Thus, the name Chicken Bacolod.

Anyway, my father and I normally go to Sunday mass at mid-afternoon then have light snacks before doing the groceries. But, today, we were a bit sluggish so we went to mass a little later than usual and then had dinner. Good thing our refrigerator and cupboard are still stocked from the holiday feasts. Gotta have something to feed the monsters within. 🙂

Chilling out at Chili’s

Sometimes, I just miss eating at Chili’s.  So, last night I gave in to my craving and dragged my father to the branch in SM Megamall.

He had  Triple Smoked Burger.


It was the biggest burger we ever saw and he, for the first time, did not get to finish it off.  Tried the patty and it tasted real good.  But what I liked the most was the dip for the fries.  That was amazing.  I was tempted to go ask them for the recipe.

I had Sweet and Spicy Chicken.


I loved this dish.  It’s new on their menu and if I remember correctly, the chicken had a Habanero glaze. The fish was a bit dry but who cares? It tasted good.  The chicken had just the right amount of heat that was countered perfectly by the cilantro rice and the steamed broccoli.  Loved the balance. 🙂



It is always worth it to eat at Chili’s. Great food coupled with great service always makes the wait so worth it.

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.

Dinner with my father:

I love Thai food. The levels of flavor you get is simply amazing.

So, it’s a good thing my father can appreciate Thai food now because I love experimenting with Thai recipes.

And tonigt’s recipe is Curried Coconut Chicken.


Found the recipe at .

Followed it almost to the letter and the resulting dish is simply delicious.

Small changes I made are: used legs and thighs instead of chicken breast cut into chunks. And I made homemade stewed tomatoes instead of canned. 🙂
