FOOD FINDS: JacknJill's Calbee Potato Chips

Because its summer, daughter and I are on the lookout for new "noms." So here's our new food finds from the grocery --- Calbee Potato Chips. Luckily, it has three flavors that we seem to agree on (hubby included) - wasabi, classic salt, and cheddar and sour cream.



I am particularly fond of the Classic Salted. That's the blue colored pack. At first, I thought that it will taste a bit salty but I was pleasantly surprised that its "lightly" salted. I do have a low tolerance for salt so believe me when I say that this is not salty. ;)

My hubby, on the other hand, love the "wasbi" flavor. That's the yellow colored pack. This flavor is a hit-or-miss. Either you love it, or you hate it. The "wasabi" flavor stings the tongue but the flavor soon disappears after a few seconds. This flavor is for those who loves wasabi.

Daughter gives the cheddar and sour cream flavor a nod (predictably). She also loves the fact that the chips are coated with just the right amount of flavor. She prefers to pair it with Dr. Pepper's Cherry Soda.

The small packs costs P16.50 and the huge one (no photo) costs P99.00 in the grocery.


Verdict: thumbs up. we're definitely buying again. :)

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.
