The hoisin chicken was excellent, just the way it should be! Unfortunately the picture is not the prettiest but I guess its the taste that counts. Unless of course if you are seeing just the picture, in which case the picture counts, not the taste!

Interesting article on common foods and herbs with antibiotic properties.  Some of the food items got me by surprise.  The foods mentioned in the blog are onion, garlic, honey, cabbage, fermented foods and a long list of herbs.

I was surprised to see cabbage making an appearance in the list. Cabbage is high in vitamin C. Fruits and vegetables high in vitamin C are considered a natural antibiotic and a one-cup serving of cabbage provides about 75% of an adults daily allowance. For those of us not eating enough cabbage, myself included, this is a nice reminder.


  1. Now those wings look like something I would totally enjoy!

  2. I love those bbq chicken wings! Fingerlicking!

  3. haha you really did make hoi sin chicken! I'm sure it tasted delicious!

  4. Those chicken wings are absolutely one of my favourites and I think I can detect a calamansi seed still sitting on the top? :) :)

  5. this cookies looks delicious!

    say what you think about my dishes :)

    Have a lovely weekend,

  6. I just saw Jen's hoisin chicken and now I'm seeing yours. It probably means it's time for me to cook it! :-)

  7. The Hoisin Chicken looks scrumptious and personally I like the photo very much! I am ashamed to admit it, but I have never had or cooked it...

  8. I was initially surprised when I heard that cabbage was very high in Vitamin C, fortunately I love the stuff!
