Coleen's Recipes: Yellow Chicken Curry

I've been cooking a lot lately.  Experimenting, feeding myself, rediscovering our kitchen.  Since I will be leaving tomorrow evening, I decided to cook something today and just pack it in the freezer for later consumption, in case anyone in the house gets hungry.  Let me present to you, my version of Yellow Chicken Curry.  I had help, care of McCormick Philippines but I still think this is my original recipe since there's a twist to it.  Read on to find out what. :)

#DoItAllBella: Pantene Pro-V's 3-Minute Miracle

I may be months late but it's because I really want to sample and see the results of products I try.  A couple of months ago, BDJ (Belle de Jour) sent me a trial pack of Pantene's newest product – the 3-Minute Miracle.  The pack had a small bottle of shampoo, conditioner, and the 3-Minute Miracle conditioner.  According to its packaging, the 3-Minute Miracle Conditioner will make your hair "stronger, shinier, and smoother in just three minutes."  Sounds impossible and kinda unbelievable, right?  Yes, but with Pantene, not really.

Coleen's Recipes: Sinampalukang Manok

I think I've mentioned it a couple times before that I really, really love soups, especially sinigang.  I learned this recipe more than a decade ago from my aunt and I've considered it as one of my specialties ever since.  This version has been modified according to my taste so beware. :)

Coleen's Recipes: Sinigang na Sardines

It's been a while since I last posted a recipe on my blog.  I guess I was a bit overwhelmed with all the good food, beauty products and new places that have been popping up the past 2-3 years that I completely forgot about posting my own recipes (or maybe I wish to keep them secret haha).  Anyway, tonight will be different.  I've been sick the past week (since Monday, if you constantly read my blog).  I was bedridden for about three days, including New Year's Eve AND day.  I was able to walk around a bit today but I still tire easily.  Since it was only Nan, the kids, and me tonight, she didn't cook anymore.  But I was craving for some sinigang – something hot and sour to relax my tired body (and soul).  So the kids had some chicken sopas from lunch, while I decided to hit the kitchen and concoct something for myself.

I originally planned on opening a can of fried sardines and cooking sinigang soup for dinner.  But as I was rummaging through our fridge, looking for some vegetables I could add to the soup, I got tired.  I don't eat sardines straight from the can.  I always have them sautéed in garlic and onions before eating them but my body was not ready to get tired just yet.  I had to think fast.  I want hot sinigang soup and I want to try this hot and spicy fried sardines but my body is telling me to just lie down.  What to do?  What to do?  

Bam.  Why don't you cook Sinigang na Sardinas (Sardines Sinigang)?
