About

In addition to my reviews, I’ve decided I will blog about the food that I make, both homemade, and from cookbooks. Ever since college, cooking has become a way to relax. Once again, I love being creative and this is another form of it.
Chicken Afritada is a Filipino dish of chicken, potatoes, and bell peppers in tomato sauce. It’s tasty, especially with a side of rice. I’ve eaten this so many times growing up that I’m glad I obtained the recipe from my mom & now I can make one of the comfort foods I’ve loved so much.
