Sinigang na Hipon

Recently I was receiving a lot of emails and messages from my social media accounts.
They’re asking why I suddenly stop writing and posting new recipes.
I’m really SORRY about it… Since I got home few weeks ago I was really enjoying my TIME with my FAMILY.
My Family is my top most priority. But since I treat you us a member of my Family,
I will try my best to retro-post a ton of recipes and stories from my previous adventures.

Believe me, I have a lot for your Hungry Mind and Tummy!!! So please keep on visiting from time to time.

Now let’s start cooking… This Filipino soup is so good that I don’t wanna waste your time reading my lousy story.

  1. I also was wondering where you were! Good you are enjoying your family time. Sinigang anything. My favorite comfort food ever. Would you happen to have the recipe for the tamarind sauce that doesn’t require the package? I’d love to be able to make that version as well.

    • Hello Diahann!
      I will try to do one sinigang recipe with the real tamarind fruit.
      Hope I can still find some in our local market.
      It was nice to hear from you, thank for your suggestion! 🙂

  2. That soup looks divine. We are not really in a prawn part of the world, but I imagine it would work with another firm type of fish. Will give it a try.
