Fish Dinner Meal

 This is Alaskan Pink Salmon Fillet in Sweet Teriyaki Sauce. It was pre-marinated when I bought it. It was like $7.99/lb but got it with 30% off discount. I don't buy fish it it is not on sale or no discount. It is really expensive here. Regular price is $9.99-$10.99 a lb.

Anyway, I baked the fish for 30 minutes or so until golden brown at 450°F. Served with brown rice and mixed veges with chicken meat. Yum!

Baked Chicken Egg Rolls

 Another family favorite dish. Baked Chicken Egg Rolls! We also call them lumpia. Lumpia shanghai are smaller and thinner and mostly made of ground meat and so flavorful.

  • With baked chicken egg rolls, ingredients are precooked so this is really a quick and easy recipe. 

  • I used left over chicken breast from Costco's rotisserie chicken, a 16 oz pack of frozen diced carrots and peas-cooked as directed on the package, 1 tbsp seasoning without msg (Costco's less sodium boullion), 1 tbsp minced garlic, 1 tbsp onion powder, 1 tsp black pepper and a cup olive oil for coating.Youtube Video
  • On a skillet, use cooking spray or a tbsp of olive oil; heat pan over medium heat. Add all ingredients; cook and stir until heated through. Set aside and let it cool a bit. 
  • Then spoon 1/4 cup chicken mixture on the bottom third of triangular shape egg roll wrapper; fold sides toward center and roll tightly. Keep remaining wrappers covered with a damp paper towel to keep them moist. Place seam side down on a a tray.  Repeat in every roll.
  • Preheat oven at 425°F. Arrange rolls on a tray, seam side down. Brush egg rolls evenly with olive oil (both sides). You may also use cooking spray. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • Serve with sweet chili sauce or with any of your favorite dipping sauce. Enjoy~

Swai Fish Fillets Paksiw/Paksiw na Isda


Paksiw na Isda: Swai Fish fillets in a pot filled with a cup of cider vinegar, a cup of water and plenty of pepper corns, 3pcs whole crushed garlic +garlic powder 😁

Add all ingredients and bring to boil. Simmer until cooked around 20 minutes or more until half of the juice has evaporated. Make sure there is still juice left.

I used no salt but this tastes good already. Juice is kinda sweet. You can add soy sauce or salt to make it tastier. Enjoy~ #indayskitchen #indayskitchens

Baked Sweet Potato Wedges/Yam Slices

I highly recommend this recipe!!! I found one on but I used salt-free seasoning and added a little garlic powder, no salt. My daughter really loves them and I am making some again. I just bought 8 pieces of yams and sweet potatoes. 

The slicing takes time but it is a good exercise for me. I get to sweat at least😁 2 big yams or sweet potatoes is enough if you are slicing them in quarters then thin pieces. You can also slice 3 pieces of yams or sweet potatoes, in half lengthwise and make wedges. Bake in the oven at 400°F for 30-40 minutes.

Here are what you need:

3pcs Sweet Potatoes or Yams

1/3 cup olive oil

1 tsp pepper

1 tsp salt (i used salt-free seasoning, you may also use italian seasoning)

1 tbsp garlic powder (you may use rosemary)

1 tsp chili powder (optional) if you want a bit of spicy taste


1- Preheat oven at 400°F. Cut the potatoes lengthwise into quarters, then cut each quarter lengthwise in half again. This will make 8 wedges. You may also cut these crosswise in half to make smaller wedges.

2-In a bowl, combine  olive oil, salt and pepper and the remaining ingredients. Toss the wedges and mix. Make sure the wedges are evenly coated.

3-Arrange the wedges on an oven-safe tray. Bake for 30-40 minutes. They cook easily so don't burn them.

4-Serve with your favorite dipping sauce or ketchup.

Cheese Balls

 I wanna share my favorite cheese snacks of all time- Cheese Balls!

My kids love these too but since it is not healthy, they only get to eat these during parties. 

When I was a kid, I remember munching to a similar snack that we call Sweet Corn Snacks. It was sweet and salty and I have been craving for it. We don't have that kind here in America and the closest I could get which is kinda similar to that taste but not sweet are these Cheese Balls. I love cheese so, this became a favourite.

What's your favorite munchies?
