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...

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...

What is your favorite comfort food? A comfort food is a simple dish which you can cook quickly not only to satisfy a hungry stomach, but most importantly, to give “comfort” or pleasure to those who eat this dish. My comfort food is called “albondigas soup” and my family is my primary fan of this dish. It’s a clear soup with pork meatballs, carrots and misua (Chinese Vermicelli). It should be served hot and can be eaten with rice during lunch or dinner. It’s also our favorite soup dish for rainy and cold seasons.My albondigas...

Apart from milk fish (bangus), cream dory is my family’s favorite. And because it is always available in the supermarket and relatively affordable (depends on the brand), it’s also my favorite to cook.  For me, it has a unique taste but it’s very subtle that you can easily mix it to different ingredients, and make different kinds of meals. It’s also easy to cook. You can steam it, coat and fry it or fry it as it is. But what about the nutrients, what do we get from cream dory ? You’ll see the nutrient content...

Sugar for me is a true gift from the Lord. I couldn’t imagine living life without sweets and I will regret it if my daughters will ever experience being hindered from enjoying sweet foods. But we all know that sugar intake should be limited even if you are the healthiest and the fittest athlete who can burn all the sugar they want to when they work out. With my husband who has diabetic family history, the risk is much higher. The sad part is, you know, that when you try to limit your sugar, the more you crave for it, right? It’s...
