Roast Chicken Thighs on Bed of Potatoes & Carrots Posted by: | January 2, 2012
 

Happy 2012! And it’s been exactly one year since I re-launched this blog on my own server and domain (this time last year, I declared it was an important step and a new beginning towards my blogging identity – and it really did make a big difference). One year has passed since, and though I […]

Roast Chicken Legs with Tomatoes (revisited) Posted by: | May 27, 2011
 

I made this classic Roast Chicken dish (a fantastic Jamie Oliver recipe) about a year ago, for an Easter dinner with friends. Back then this was the first roast chicken I had ever attempted and it succeeded in creating the impression that I knew what I was doing in the kitchen (which I hardly did […]

Chicken Pho (Pho Ga) Posted by: | April 11, 2011
 

Today I am introducing to you the Pho as I know it. Not the famous Pho you’d find in those Hanoi Old Quarters with their traditional sweet bone broth (and also the infamous amount of MSG they use), but the Pho I grew up with in my home, made by my Mom on those lazy […]

Vietnamese Caramel Ginger Chicken a la Bobby Chinn Posted by: | June 3, 2010
 

I know this is lame but being a Vietnamese, I always feel that I do not need to buy any Vietnamese cookbooks, since I already know most of the basics, and I could just ask my Mom for recipes anytime. I’ve been trying out lots of fancy recipes from all kinds of cuisines, except for […]

Chicken kebabs with Chickpeas salad + Pita bread with Hummus dip Posted by: | May 25, 2010
 

So as promised… here are the recipes to my Middle Eastern dinner this weekend. I’m gonna keep it short as I’m really sleepy after a long day of work and a good dinner at a Sri Lankan crab place. The Egg sauce crab was soo good, I’m still flashbacking about it now. Kebabs are really […]

Chicken in Marsala & Dill creme sauce Posted by: | May 13, 2010
 

Today I had the pleasure of having TL (my long time work buddy) over for dinner. The idea was for him to provide free photography service of me and my food, in exchange for the meal he was shooting. I wish I always have a photographer beside me, snapping away as I cook, instead of […]

Vietnamese Style Healthy Chicken Stir Fry Posted by: | April 15, 2010
 

Tonight I had the pleasure of hosting a simple midweek dinner for 2 of my closest friends I met through the working world: Gary & Jolin. It was a rather random and last minute thing. Luckily I already had some nice chicken fillet in my freezer and a bunch of dry and fresh mushrooms I […]
