    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…

    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…

    In The Kitchen: Holy Week Special – Sardines

    Catholics observed the Lenten season last week. No meats, that is! As expected, prices of seafood and vegetables went up. For a budget conscious mom like me, “diskarte” is what I implemented! Ha ha! I bought a can of Ligo sardines and a medium sized Chayote. I have 2 kids that needs to eat too so this is the idea that came to my mind last Good Friday. Very timely for the Holy Week. My 2 year old loves tomatoes and fish and my elder daughter likes to eat vegetables, Chayote in particular. Hubby and I can go with anything that is not pork that day. I normally saute Chayote…

    In The Kitchen: Nilaga

    I’ve been having a hard time deciding on what to serve for lunch and dinner lately. If you are surrounded with picky eaters, I guess this really happens. It’s just so hard to prepare for a meal that will best suite 2 adults, a 4th grader and a toddler. It’s definitely a challenge to come up with something everyone would like, appreciate, and benefit from it too. And as I was much more concerned about the kids, I decided to serve what we call “Nilagang Baboy” or Pork Stew. It’s healthy, and the vegetable ingredients are something that I already have in the fridge, if not, can easily be bought…

    Chicken and Veggies Fritatas

    Who’s in the kitchen? Me! What’s there to look forward to? I’m ready to try something for the family. I have seen an early morning show featured and cooked Fritata sometime last month and I decided to come up with my own Fritata recipe. I used ground chicken breast instead of pork and so as added minced garlic, onions, potatoes and carrots. Egg, salt, pepper and dried Basil completed the mix before I wrapped them in Molo wrappers. Sealed the mixture and pierced it with fork. As soon as I made a few, the uncooked Fritatas were deep fried. It’s ready and my toddler was totally excited. She had it…
