Our breakfast at home:  Fried smoked fish served with sauteed tomatoes & onions I shared before that in our family, eggs, may it be salted, soft-boiled, hard-boiled, scrambled, cooked as sunny-side-up or omelet,  are always breakfast food.  Well, actually, that’s how our Mama raised us.   If she is not serving eggs with fried meats …

My Husband’s Spaghetti in Marinara Sauce

I’ve been forced feeding my husband with some of my experimental pasta dishes.  Most of the time he will complain before eating but he will finish his plateful of pasta anyway with no left-overs (wide grin).  Then one day he announced that he’s going to cook spaghetti in marinara sauce.  And he did.  He based his …
