Calamares




78/365 - Calamares for Dinner

If there's one food that I really crave, it will have to be this. I don't know what's in this food that I just love it so much! What's funny was that whenever I'd eat this, I suddenly become this uber annoying, or someone who just had a shot of Jolt cola (in reference to that character in the animated movie, "Over the Hedge"). My sister would always say that no one should ever feed me calamares anymore because she's the one suffering from my annoyance - I'd hug her and shake her and annoy her to the max. =) But, that annoyance do give us time to laugh out loud.

I make my own calamares in simple ways. I'd coat it with those fried chicken coating mix, added with a little cornstarch so it won't be too salty. I guess the fact that this food was just way too easy to cook made me want to cook and eat it over and over.

Nothing beats home made cooking. Aside from the fact that you can make your portions bigger, you can also enjoy cooking another batch ;)

Jenn, the Foodie


I come from a family who loves cooking and eating. I never had any formal training in cooking and that I taught myself how to cook based on the handed down recipes, but I could say that I can cook good food. In 2008, I started documenting my food trips for my travel blog, and since I have quite enough to start a food blog, might as well put all those food trips in one location. Thus, a food blog is born - thanks to the new Friendster Blogs. However, due to several problems, I was left with no choice but to pack bags again and move here instead. Here's the permanent address, promise! Enough talk, let the food trippin' begin! {Know More About Me}
