Dinner!



I apologize for the crappy photo. I was in a hurry because, well- we're all hungry.
The citrus roast chicken turned out excellent. No need for gravy, ketchup & other whatnots.

ingredients:

1 whole chicken
orange or ponkan or kiat-kiat
1 clove garlic
calamansi
salt & pepper

wash the chicken and pat it dry with towels. rub salt & pepper all over including the crevices. then squeeze the calamansi all over the chicken and gently massage it. yes- massage. not the shiatsu-type though. when you feel that the chicken is already relaxed and happy, slice the orange (in this recipe, i used kiat-kiat since that's available in the fridge) in quarters and stick it inside the chicken. pound the garlic a bit so let out the flavor and stick it in also. if you feel that there's still space, add more orange.

then roast it in the broiler (much more healthier that way ... i think)

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

RECIPE: TKG's Brownie Balls with Cointreau Infused Cranberries

We may still be quarantined inside our homes but that doesn't mean we have to let go of our love for food. And if there's something positive that happened in our new normal, I'd say that most people (including me) have discovered the simple joys of spending more time in the kitchen. Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.
