    Lemongrass Coconut Chicken Soup

    It was one of the weekend where it’s hot but i was thinking to make soup . Yes , crazy , but this morning i wanted to make Pho Noodles , it’s been months since i had pho noodles . Before lockdown was the last time we had pho noodles at our favorite Vietnamese restaurant . So i mentioned to my husband i wanted to get beef bones after the gym to make this soup . The soup would take about 5 hours to simmer , to develop its flavor , but he thought it’d be too long to cook in case we wanted to go out some place .…

    Meatza , Meat Pizza

    If you’re just looking at this picture at a glance you wouldn’t think of it as a different kind pizza . It looks exactly the same of any of those thin crust pizza out there . The truth is ,the crust what makes this different . No , it doesn’t use cauliflower rice ( I’ve done it before ) It’s better than cauliflower since it uses meat as the crust ! view full post » Hits: 0

    Indonesian Chicken Curry

    There are so many versions of curry , so i felt like i should add the ” indonesian ” word in it . LOL .. My mom used to make this dish quite often , she would call it ” Kare Ayam ” Kare = curry and Ayam = chicken . It is one of her favorite dish . I wasn’t really much into Curry back then . Although it was delicious , she would use whole chicken that she cut up herself and make a whole pot that would last us probably 3 days because there was only 2 of us . view full post » Hits: 0
