Chicken Teriyaki

It's been awhile now since we haven't dine to our favorite place to eat Asian food at  Joy Teriyaki. I consider this as one of my favorite restaurant. Their food is absolutely yummy and healthy. I was craving for a  teriyaki chicken that we always got from Joy . Last night I was trying to order something but unfortunately, it was past 10pm which they already closed. So what I did, I cooked teriyaki chicken in my own version. I sliced the boneless chicken thighs, marinade it  for half hour  with soy sauce, teriyaki sauce (yoshida sauce), lemon, a little bit of salt and pepper and stir fry them. It turned out so good and was exactly what I wanted. Hubby also loves it ;).

Lunch at Baja Fresh

It was hubby's day off and we had our lunch date at Baja Fresh (Mexican Grill) which is just a walking distance from our place. We arrived there around 1:30pm and we just knew that they offer a happy hour  lunch specials  which we only have to pay half  of the regular price  menu around 2pm-5pm. Since we were not hungry yet, we decided to walk around the shopping center and come back after 2pm so we can avail their discount. 

 I have my own preference when it comes to Mexican food. Its not really my type of cuisine but I also have  few of my favorites. As usual, I ordered the Chicken Quesadilla  which i like from Baja Fresh. It is serve it guacamole, sour cream and chips. 


Hubby got this big chicken buritto which is also serve with guacamole,salsa and chips.

Italian food for dinner

Nothing's special for our dinner tonight. I ask hubby earlier before he leave to work what should I make for dinner. Then he told me Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo sounds good to him. I had to admit, I was not really a fan of Italian food the very first time I taste it. The flavor was so bland and tasteless. Then my hubby's family likes to go to Italian Restaurant and cook Italian foods so I myself used to the flavor and began liking it :).

As expected, I made chicken fettuccine Alfredo and baked the cheese bread that we got from winco. It would be healthier if I also include spinach in it but we forgot to get it from the store. However, it was real good and we both love it.

Chili : Hubby's version

The other day, hubby and I went grocery shopping to buy the stuff that we needed for chili. I haven't make a chili from scratch before since we only buy those already in the can or ready to heat and eat. This time, hubby was determined to cook his own version of chili.


2 lbs.lean ground beef
coarsely chopped onion
2 cloves of chopped garlic
1/2 tbsp of ground hot red chile
2 1/2 tbsp ground mild chile
1 1/2 tbsp ground cumin
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups water
1(15oz) can tomato sauce
1(28oz) can peeled whole tomatoes
1(16oz) can pinto/kidney beans (rinsed)

It turned out so good and delicious. Everyone has a different version of it. It depends on what on  your creativity and taste preference. You can also add vegetable like green bell pepper or  more chile (hot/mild) if you want to make it more spicy. And for a healthier chili, buy a more combination of coarse-ground beef and hamburger-ground chuck. That way, some of the meat remains in a larger pieces once browned. Happy Eating!

The Yummy Blog is born

Welcome everyone to my new yummy blog. Since I was a kid, I like to watch cooking shows on television.  I also dreamed that one day I will have my own cooking show. I learned how to cook from my father. I was his assistant when we prepare food every time there is a big  occasion. Though I'm not that great  cook or a famous chef ,  I didn't even study nor  go to culinary school, I believe that if you have the passion, and eager to learn and love what you are doing, everything is possible. 

This blog is all about my passion for food and anything related to it. I will also include the food escapades that hubby and I will explore to different restaurants, the recipe's, kitchen stuff, home and garden , health and lifestyle. Come, follow and allow me to share to you the perfect recipe called a taste of life.
