Welcome to my virtual kitchen!

I hope you enjoy your visit here, whether it’s your first time or your 30th. I first started sharing my recipes as Facebook Notes, until my friends began asking how they could share them with their friends; so I gathered my courage and tiptoed into the world of blogging via Tumblr. As interest in my blog started “cooking,” my wonderful hubby set me up at WordPress with my own domain. (All the content from my previous blog moved here as well.) Let me know what you think, and be sure to bookmark it for future reference!

My other hobby, scrapbooking, is also documented at WordPress here.

Fish Sarciado

  • 4-6 fried fish fillets*
  • 1 tsp minced garlic (3-4 cloves)
  • 1/4 cup diced onion
  • 1 large can crushed tomatoes    
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp fish sauce (optional)
  • salt, black pepper, & hot sauce to taste
  • cooking oil

Heat oil in skillet and sauté onions until soft. Add garlic, tomatoes, and seasonings and simmer until sauce starts to thicken. Add egg and stir until fully incorporated and cooked. Nestle cooked/reheated fish into sauce and serve with white rice if desired.

*This Filipino dish is warm, comforting, and flavorful; I discovered it when looking for a way to refresh some leftover takeout, and it worked great! (Of course, you could also use fried fillets from the freezer or fry some fresh.)
