Cooking for ze huzband!

One of the major adjustments I’ve had to do after getting married, is getting used to the idea that I now have to cook for my family. Remember when I became so stressed about trying a few Jamie Oliver recipes?

Well, my stress level has gone down significantly and thru our first year, I’ve managed to cook most of the Filipino classic recipes with success: adobo, sinigang, nilagang baka, sinangag with tocino, chopseuy. I’ve also tried out a few Japanese, Italian and Chinese recipes. All that time I spent playing kitchen with mom actually subconsciously gave me some useful skillz around ze kitchen. Of course, I’m not at the level of my mother-in-law who has the patience to do this, without using a food processor:

But baby steps, right? Here are some of my efforts!

I don’t really get to take much photos of what I cook, but if I had this as my kitchen, I would probably take a whole lot more! hahaha

None of those stainless steel kitchens! Warm stone is just lovely!!
