Chopsuey is the quickest dish I can cook at home when I feel like serving lots of veggies for lunch or dinner. I usually buy a pack of pre-cut assorted vegetables from the grocery, wash them, and sautee them with spring onions and garlic, and meat (either lean ground pork or shredded, left-over chicken meat). But recently, I found a way to make my chopsuey much more creamy and lovely to eat. I say lovely because we love to top it over rice because of the creaminess. The secret? A can of Jolly Cream of Mushroom Condensed Soup. Easy right?...

I know you’ll agree that as years pass by, providing healthy food on the family table is getting more difficult. Why? Vegetables are getting more limited as the weather becomes unfriendly to our crops, thus making our favorite veggies very expensive. Sometimes, the “sayote” I buy, are cheap but sometimes they become steep. Don’t mention potatoes, oh my, they are so expensive these days. Gone are the days when you say vegetables are affordable. I can hardly make salads these days. Then, consider the number of new...

Pesto pasta, I just found out, is one of many’s favorite alternative pasta dish from the usual red sauce and white sauce pasta. But most of us only eat pesto pasta from Italian restaurants or spaghetti houses. Luckily, Contadina makes it easy for us moms now to make our own pesto pasta dishes. I was just craving for that pesto taste when I saw my Contadina Pesto sitting comfortably on my pantry. And since I also have a stock of Jolly mushrooms, and a brick of Eden cheese, but all my meat were frozen, I thought why not make a no-meat...

The kids will be back to school tomorrow and we will be officially back to business. Work at home, house chores and the usual stuff. Before we plunge in, I let my husband satisfy his curiosity in this vintage shop he was eyeing for so long to visit. It was somewhere K-1st Street near Kamuning Northwest Estate and Collectibles. You may click the name to be directed to its Facebook page. It was a house open to public and it was filled with vintage LPs, cds, casette tapes, toys, cards, comics and a little bit of home stuff like jars, salt...

Here’s a recipe I learned from the cooking bootcamp I recently attended, the Masflex Kitchen Camp. You may have tasted that glorious crepe cake in your favorite cake shop but it was quite pricey.

And you know what, the frosting in this recipe is delicious, and the ingredients are super simple.

Nigella Lawson, the domestic goddess (credits to owner) When I received an invitation to join the Contadina Supermarket Raid, I almost jumped with joy. Why? Because finally, I’ll get to know the brand which Nigella Lawson is endorsing. I’ve been watching Nigella ever since I became a full time work at home mom. She’s a gourmet and food writer and I am a total fan of hers. I could watch her forever, the Domestic Goddess, with her pretty face and I dig it whenever she sneaks in to munch on something from her refrigerator...

In this recipe, I’ve used Contadina Arrabiata Pasta Sauce as a marinate for my chicken wings. This is my entry for the recipe contest in the Contadina Supermarket Raid held in Robinsons Selection at Venice Piazza. I’ve decided to use this pasta sauce variant of Contadina because of its main ingredients which are Italian Tomatoes and Red Chili Peppers. Instead of using a typical marinate for chicken wings (such as soy sauce and calamansi), the Contadina Arrabiata sauce gave an Italian taste and a spicy kick to my chicken. The...
