    Eggplant With Pork Bits Adobo

    In one of my previous posts, I have mentioned that my kids eat eggplant veggie. They only differ in how they prefer it to be cooked. Another challenge for the Mom, right? To be honest, I really do not have issues in making my girls eat vegetables. They got used to it. There is always a certain kind of veggie in the dinner table. When I saw this Eggplant Adobo dish on TV, it caught my attention. During weekdays, I get to watch a morning show called “Magandang Buhay”. It is hosted by celebrity moms, Melai Cantiveros, Karla Estrada and Jolina Magdangal. In one of their most recent episodes, they…

    FMS Photo A Day: September 4 – Sauce : Filipino Dish

    I’d like to also share here my entry to FMS Photo-a-day for September 4, a Filipino dish called Laing. That in the photo is how I want it to be, a little saucy. Most of the time, this Filipino dish is spicy but I didn’t crush those chili. My hubby did when he took some on to his plate, though. Laing is one of the many delicious dishes that hails from the region of Bicol. My Mom was a true-blooded Bicolana from the province of Camarines Sur, in Buhi town. Bicol is geographically big, there are several versions of Laing out there and almost all, spicy! This Filipino dish is made…

    Chicken with Creamy Corn and Potatoes

    Chicken with Creamy Corn and Potatoes is definitely a new dish for me, for the family. As a Mom, have you ever experienced asking yourself what dish to prepare for your family as soon as you open your eyes in the morning? It is quite challenging especially if you are a working Mom, right? Even if you are like me who work from home, it is really a test.  There are many things to consider in preparing everyday dishes for the whole family. It has to be healthy. It has to be something that everyone will eat… and appreciate – a bonus! One morning, I already know I am to…

    Okra Poppers

    My daughters eat veggies, but there are some slime-y ones that they sometimes hesitate tasting. One of which is okra and  the other is eggplant. They do eat eggplants depending on the was it was cooked. My elder daughter likes it fried or mixed with pork & “bagoong”, while my younger daughter likes it in “Paksiw” and when cooked the “torta” way. There are many ways how to incorporate eggplants in different dishes but it is quite hard to do that with Okra. My husband has recently shared a post about the health benefits of Okra and the girls were put up in a challenge. Eat Okra more often! Like…

    Breakfast: Banana-Raisin Oatmeal Cookie Cups

    One morning, I decided to serve both K & Roey Banana oatmeal. K ended up eating both servings and Roey ate Bananas instead. K got used to eating anything you serve her, believe it or not. My Mama has really helped a lot in her eating habits. She may be skinny but I am thankful that she is not sickly as well. Both my kids, actually. Thanks to HIM! Because, health is definitely a priority for me, and then education. Roey, on the other hand, is the picky eater, she is not skinny though. She has just learned ( I don’t know where!) to say no to any food she…

    Serve The Kids with Fun!

      A number of parents have already ventured into Bento. Be it their kids’ snack or lunch at school. I have not tried Bento-ing or experimenting in serving my daughters with cute looking packed foods. But, I guess this was one of the firsts. I used my gingerbread man shaped cookie cutter to serve both my girls with peanut butter sandwiches. The scraps satisfied me, I have no problem with that. Since I have been Pinterest-ing for quite sometime now, I have seen pretty cute and clever ideas how to serve kids with fun and healthy snacks. From the simplest to the most creative ideas, Pinterest have it! So, if…

    Snacks and Sweets

        Every Mom wants to serve her child/children all the healthy foods there is and it would bring her so much joy if the kids would like it and enjoy! I never had trouble giving veggies and fruits to my girls. They’re both curious and experimental (with the different tastes), I may say. Now that they’re able to help me out with little things and chores, I ensure to compensate them (okay, reward is the word) with healthy snacks.   Nutty Banana cake   And I give in to sweets too, sometimes. In the next photo, lucky Roey has a 70 grams of assorted candies. That includes caramel fudge…

    Simply Healthy, Simply Happy!

      Cooked a simple yet healthy lunch for the family one day last January. For a stay/work from home Mom like me, it is quite hard sometimes to think and prepare the family’s meal of the day. Especially if you have a picky eater, a curious toddler and a spouse that loves to alternate most all-time-Filipino-dishes. Not to mention a slightly tight budget. I have to set my own choice most of the time… not until this particular day when I did not ask for their meal requests. I gave in to mine! To my surprise, they all liked it too! I am just glad that both my girls eat…
