Last month, my father in law celebrated his birthday and usually, when we go to celebrations like these, we have potlucks. This time, I decided to make my own blueberry cheesecake because Daddy has a sweet tooth and I know a cheesecake will just be a hit in special occasions like these. Last time, I made a Dulce De Leche Cheesecake but this time, I wanted to make something classic and fruity. So here’s a very easy recipe you can use if you want to make one at home. I used very basic ingredients which can be bought from any grocery...

Most of us love to eat US potatoes, more than we know it. We Filipino moms won’t find our “afritada” and “menudo” complete without potatoes. And there are a hundred more dishes where we include potatoes in them. Of course, most kids we know crave for French fries! Luckily for us, these humble potatoes are considered “wonder foods”. Let me tell you some of the most important reasons why.Packed with Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, Iron, and PotassiumUS potatoes contain more vitamin C than tomatoes or sweet potatoes. Vitamin C helps...

This dessert has been a long-time family favorite (at least for me and my youngest daughter). I remember when I was just discovering internet and I needed work ( I just resigned from my office work then to take care of my kids), I actually made leche flan  in different flavors and sold them in ebay. Facebook is not that popular then. I made the classic vanilla, chocolate and strawberry flavored leche flan. I stopped because the commute to deliver was tiresome although I earned at least a bit. So I tried making leche flan again and I thought...

As a mom, I’ve always wanted to be able to bake bread and cookies for my family. It warms my heart whenever I see them eat my finished products. But while baking by merely following recipes and watching tutorials worked for a time, I knew in my heart that if I wanted to be able to bake better cookies and bread and eventually be able to sell them if I want to, I really have to know the proper techniques in baking. PACE (Professional Academy for Culinary Education) is now opening their facility for students of Baking and Pastry Arts...

When I saw the limited edition Jack ‘n Jill Nips Color Series , I got excited with the colors. Nips is a favorite at home, mine is the Fruit and Nut variant, while my girls like the classic multi-colored variant. Since it has been a while since I baked cookies, I thought to surprise my kids with some colorful Nips Cookies which they can nibble while they do their assignments. I just used a basic butter cookie recipe with the colorful Nips on top.  Each pack of this limited edition treat contains single-colored button-shaped candies...

I have a can of Jolly fruit cocktail left from last Christmas and so I thought to try this recipe. I had to make it with chocolate graham crackers to make it more appealing to my kids, who won’t refuse anything chocolate. This will be win win for all of us (kids and adults) because it has fruits, it’s a cold dessert, and it’s chocolatey. Crema De Fruta – Jolly Fruit Cocktail on top, it looks syrupy but it’s clear gelatin on top My Masflex Saucepan – which I mainly used for this recipe. It’s a stainless...

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?...
