    I am lucky to have a beautiful pinoy wife who makes the best pork adobo for me on a regular basis. Coming from a western background it took me some time to get used to some of the dishes on her menu but after 16 years of happy marriage I have come to love them all.
    She keeps all her recipes online so we have a wide variety to choose from when we cook together. I hope someone else likes her wonderful selections πŸ™‚
