RECIPE: TKG's Shrimp Scampi Paired with Mekeni Cheese Hotdog

This year has been a life-changer for every one especially for moms like me. Imagine preparing tons of meals that will satisfy the whole family, and at the same time making sure that they are eating healthily. Another factor is that since the community quarantine began in mid-March, by the end of the year, I am really running out of ideas on what meal to prepare. 

Here's one of the dishes I prepared for my family this quarantine season- Shrimp Scampi Paired with Mekeni Cheese Hotdog.


Ingredients: 

Shrimps, 300g butterfly cut and deveined

Spaghetti noodles, 300g cooked al dente

Olive oil

Parsley or Celery leaves

Garlic, 1 medium head, crushed

Salt 

Pepper

Chili flakes

White wine (optional)

Mekeni Cheese Hotdog, 3 pcs or more (as desired)

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.
