Home Cooked Onion Chicken

Anyone of us have the habit of writing diary?
I know not many have that habit anymore and I know many will tell you that writing diary is waste of time! But have you ever thought of putting up your thoughts in Facebook or Twitter is always another form of writing your thoughts? What people says caption in your Facebook wall…

I used to have that habit… but along the years, growing with the technology, I have dropped that habit long long time ago. But nowadays you don’t have to have a physical diary to pen down your day to day happenings or your thoughts too! That’s why we have this thing call BLOG! JOURNAL!

For a start writing of this blog is more of having fun, releasing stress from work, and also the fun of making money. Though this money cannot make as much as your full time job, but, it does help me along the way; at least it helps me to reduce the working stress in those days.

Right now, making money from here is secondary… what’s important is to pen down what you have gone thru, what you’ve created for the recipes, and what you plan to say it out from your heart. And also, a network to know more people, and to learn from their knowledge and experiences in life.

For this post, I have to pen down what I have tried for the past few weeks and also to share with my family and friends if they ever swing by down here.

Well… comfort food, who doesn’t love it… comfort food to me means easy to make, easy to cook, and also it always makes your belly warmth and feel loved.

Have not tried onion chicken. Something similar to ginger chicken, but totally different taste.
