Of all the household chores there is, the only thing I like doing is cooking. As often as I can, I try to prepare and bring packed lunch (and sometimes dinner) to work. It’s just more economical and healthier than the common fast-food alternative. As much as I can, I try to cook clean but still try to keep it exciting. (Read: TRY) I could always use new recipes, though. Leave in the comments what easy recipes you love to cook. 🙂






(1) The usual suspects: pan-grilled chicken breast with veggies. Sometimes I replace the chicken with skinless porkchops.
(2) Steamed cream dory with bok choy and chayote tossed in oyster sauce.
(3) Simple pasta with spicy tuna.
(4) Corned beef omelette topped with grated cheese: a clear sign that I’m running out of fresh produce and that I need to do my groceries ASAP.
(5) The usual way I prepare my veggies: steamed or pan grilled with some butter and pepper.

Lunch the other day was spicy tuna with cabbage. This kind of combination was a first for me and it was surprisingly good. I think you could put cabbage in anything and the dish would still be good – mainly because cabbage does not have a very strong taste to it.

Okay, on to more exciting news. We already bought a fridge and stove for our apartment!☺ Last night, I cooked beef and broccoli stir fry.

3 cloves of garlic
1 whole onion
1 head of broccoli
¼ kilo beef strips
Cooking oil, salt, pepper, water and soy sauce

It is a very basic dish and anyone can do it. Sauté garlic and onion in a few drops of cooking oil. Then put in the beef, add salt and pepper to taste. Add a little amount of soy to darken the sauce a bit. Add desired amount of water. (I’m not really a fan of measurements; I just add and taste along the way.) I ended up adding more water again and again coz the beef strips were tougher that I expected. Once the meat’s all tender and done, throw in the broccoli. And voila! You got yourself a meal.

I enjoyed cooking it and I’d definitely be cooking more in the near future.

So, what’s your favorite meal to cook?
