Orange Roasted Chicken Thighs

Question, how do you cook big chick thighs? In my usual way I would have to prepare and make them boneless. But on a lazy Saturday morning, you are supposed to be lazy. So I landed on the section that I usually don’t touch, roasted chickens. I just don’t know how and fear that I…

Chicken Cream Stew

Right now I’m drunk, but in a happy way. All the overtime work seems to pay off, well, at least for today. My mind is constantly occupied by work recently and that’s not good. I’m far far away from the Zen state that you eat when you eat and you sleep when you sleep. Keep…

Mustard Greens Soup

I never thought I would ever find mustard greens again because even though I’ve had it so many times as a child, its name was always a mystery to me. But it seems that we are connected. The moment I saw it in the local market, I knew it was the one! And I was…
