Fish Stewed with Vinegar, Garlic and Ginger

I really don't know the exact English of this recipe, but we call it Paksiw na Isda. Paksiw means cooked with vinegar, salt, garlic and ginger while isda means fish. I have missed this recipe because my mom used to prepare this for us. We don't even happen to have that fish she used for cooking. So since our vacation here it is timely that we taste her favorite dish.

You can also include eggplant in this delicious dish. The eggplant will really absorb the taste of the vinegar, garlic and ginger which I really appreciate the taste. But my brother is not a fan of this recipe so he just eat less whenever our mother prepares this food.

Have you also tasted this type of dish? You can try this in any small but tasty fishes. IT is just simple to prepare because the main ingredients will just be vinegar, salt, garlic, ginger, black pepper, lady finger chili, onion and vegetable such as eggplant to include. You can include water but not too much as this is not a soup recipe.

Exotic Foods like Snails and Slugs..Do you Eat?

I guess you will wonder if I tell you if you eat such exotic foods. But people have different palette and tastes so it will just be fine for them to eat slugs or snails. Well, this afternoon, our lunch was snails. It was with coconut milk and lady finger chili and you can see that it was cooked in a very presentable way.

But when you ask me if I have tasted it, yes tasted! But hubby will never want to eat it. He might feel gross or something on eating snails but he likes frogs instead. Have you also tasted something exotic like this? I do believe that whenever you are in the province, you will also have the chance to taste different food offers from various cultures.

I do believe that eating such will not harm the health. Actually, it has a taboo of healing properties with them that nature has to offer. But as I have said, it will all depend on your own taste and guts to eat also such food offer. Have you tasted some snails lately?

Pizza and Pasta For 2014

I have been away blogging and I do miss to write food blogs again. Well this will be my try for this year 2014 and I will be happy if I can buy my own domain name and transfer everything that I have from this wonderful site that I have started long time back.

Well I just want to share what we had when we went out. It was pizza and pasta from Domino's and since I have been craving for pizza for so long, I really do like to order Barbecue Chicken and Cheese Pizza. I really adore Domino's give away sprinkles (Chili flakes and Oregano). I always do keep them even when we finish our pizza, we used to take these home and I use it as a sprinkle for my other recipes and it makes the food perfect.

I do like pan pizza than crust types and of course pizza will always be enjoyable when hot and fluffy soft. But I don’t have a problem even when it is already cold. For me pizza is my comfort food and I like to take it with any cold beverages like soda, juice and beer of course.

Well about the pasta that we ordered, it was Italian pasta on their list but I was not satisfied on the taste because it was too sour for my taste and pasta with white sauce shouldn't be tasting sour. I told my husband that it looks like they have used sour cream on the pasta instead of just using a plain white creamy sauce for the real Italian pasta. I do know because I have been cooking and preparing white sauce pasta for my family and I just don’t know why on earth the taste was really sour that time we ordered our pasta.

Anyway, I guess this depends on the variations of white sauce pasta to use but I really haven’t heard anything about using sour cream if ever you have to mix it on pasta. By the way what is important is that my tummy was full and we went home with our remaining pizza on the box and we ate it after dinner. I just hope that I will have more chance of sharing some food menu and restaurant experiences I have in here. Have a blessed New Year to all my readers and God bless you.

Green Mangoes with Bagoong Alamang

Bagoong alamang or also known as shrimp paste is my favorite for dipping green mangoes. Here in the Philippines it is really a great combination for unripe mangoes and what I like the most was Indian mangoes which is available in summer season.

I also do like shrimp paste in kare-kare which is a famous dish here. But anyway I will be posting kare-kare some other time, but for now I have to talk about green mangoes. This was given to us by our auntie in Sta. Rosa Laguna where they have mango trees which keep on growing sweet green Indian mangoes.

I remember when we were kids; we just wash off these mangoes and eat it straight away without using any knife for removing the peel. Now that my teeth are already weak after I gave birth, I can’t do the same thing.
I do like shrimp paste that are spicy hot, but this one on the photo was without chili because my family would not like much chili on it.

My Son loves Pizza Seafood Marinara

If I have money I will buy this kind of pizza which was really addictive and yet not expensive. We bought it at only P170.00 which was sliced in 8 pieces of yumminess. It has tahong (seashell), anchovies, squid, shrimp, koros (smallest shrimps), crab meat, onion and cheesy cheddar.

We bought it at Chef Arnolds Pizza just nearby our place and it was my first time to hear this type of pizza joint but it was really a steal if you would ask me since I really love their pizza when I tasted it. I will want to buy and try more of their other pizza variants such as New Yorker, Hawaiian, Pepperoni and Mushroom, Margherita, Chicago, Wild Wild Mushroom Cajun Pizza and more.

By the way if you ask me, I only gave my little one some pieces of seashell, anchovies and shrimp, not yet the squid meat. He also likes to eat cheddar cheese.

How I wish I can get juice more on my online money so that I can buy these delicious pizzas on my mothers’ birthday and also to celebrate another month milestone for my little one. I also like to add in the list and celebrate Father’s Day next week. How I really have a lot of things in mind, wishing all the best. Have a yummy and tasty food trip to all.
