Crispy Burger Steak with Mashed Potatoes and Buttered Mixed Veggies Recipe


I always get a compliment from my kids every time I cook something special or something new. That's why no matter how busy I get, I try my best to cook for them. Remember when I shared about stocking up on easy to cook food? They are a life saver especially during crunch time, but of course, I still make it as special as possible. 

Last time, I shared about how I whipped up something special out of the CDO Crispy Burger which is the Creamy Mushroom Burger Steak with Brocoli. Now I am sharing another recipe that I cooked tonight for dinner- Crispy Burger Steak with Mashed Potatoes and Buttered Mixed Veggies. The kids loved it and again I received an earful of compliments from them. It's like getting a 3 star Michelin rating, if I have my own resto. Haha!

Creamy Mushroom Crispy Burger Steak with Broccoli


We're on our 3rd day of the kids' First Quarter exams, that's why I've been MIA on social media lately. Aside from this, I also have a lot of deadlines to meet. Ugh, so many things to do, so little time! Then here comes the struggle of thinking about what to cook. It has always been my struggle, let alone in times like these. I tried planning our weekly menu, it was okay but, most days hindi rin nasusunod. Hehe. So what I do is I stock up on easy to cook food like chicken nuggets, hot dogs, and one of the kids favorite, especially Tristan- CDO Ulam Burger and the CDO Crispy Burger.

Chunky Chicken Caldereta Recipe in less than 20 minutes

Sunday is family day! No work, no online classes. It's been a stressful past 2 weeks since the kid's distance learning started. I haven't cooked a decent meal, we mostly order food or we cook instant food. So today, I cooked something special for lunch (brunch for me hehe).



I cooked Chunky Chicken Caldereta. It's my 2nd-time ko cook Caldereta, first one was beef. Oh wait, I think I cooked Beef Caldereta twice already. I am sure I took photos but I don't know where they are now so I haven't blogged about it yet. I'll probably cook again soon. So it's the first time I used Chicken meat for Caldereta and kung gaano katagal lutuin yung beef caldereta, with this, it only took me less than 20 minutes. Sharing with you my secret- I used Mama Sita’s Caldereta Mix. I don't have all the ingredients on hand so, Mama Sita's Mix was a lifesaver.

Make Your Own Fluffy Pancakes from Scratch

Pancakes anyone? I don't know about you but we all love pancake in the house. Wether you top it with maple syrup, whipped cream, chocolate syrup and fruits, it's perfect for breakfast and snack time. 

With all the ready mix pancake that is available in every supermarket everyone can have instant pancake anytime. I remember cooking my first pancake that way, it's so easy just add water, cook and voila! No hassle right? But did you know that making your own pancakes from scratch isn't that hard at all? You might say why bother when you can do it the easy way, but hey it always feels good to learn! 
We have a huge pack of all purpose flour which we won from an online promo so I found ways how to make use of it. 

I remember my mom cooking pancakes from scratch when I was young so I called her up and asked for the recipe. Google was of course very helpful, I was able to check other recipes though it's pretty much the same hehe. 

So here's an easy recipe for a fluffy pancake from scratch!

Ingredients:
1 1/2 all purpose flour 
2 teaspoon baking powder 
A pinch of salt 
1 tablespoon white sugar 
1 1/4 cups milk 
1 egg
3 tablespoons melted butter/ oil 
A dash of vanilla extract (optional)

Procedure:
1. Mix together dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, salt and sugar). 
2. Make a well in the center and pour in milk, egg, melted butter and vanilla extract
3. Mix until smooth.
4. Heat a lightly oiled frying pan, I use nonstick pan so no need for oil. 
5. Pour about 1/4 cup of batter in the pan and cook both sides.
6. Drizzle with desired syrups and topping. Serve and enjoy!

Easy peasy! It's been quite a while now since the last time I bought those pancake mixes because now I can make my own! You should give it a try and let me know how it turned out! 

Anyway For our snack earlier, i prepared the traditional Pinoy pancake which is just butter/margarine and a sprinkle of sugar on top. The kids and the husband loved it!

Quarantine Date Night + Corned Beef Hash with Eggs Recipe

Recently, I've been posting a lot about missing date nights with my husband. And honestly, we also rarely spend time alone together, you know, without the kids around since the pandemic began. So yesterday, since it was our break from work, I put the kids to bed early so that Jaear and I could have a "husband and wife time."

7-day Menu Challenge: Safeguard yourself against COVID-19


It is without a doubt that meal planning has lots of benefits. First, it's less stressful as you don't have to worry about what to cook each day. Second, instead of worrying, you get to save time and spend it on other equally important things. Third, you also get to save money as you only have to buy the ingredients you need, according to your menu, which means less to zero food wasting. Lastly, since you get to plan, you are more likely to choose healthier meals.

Steamed Cream Dory Fillet in Soy Sauce Recipe



I've been a homemaker ever since Jaear and I got married, but until now, meal planning or thinking about what to prepare every meal is still something I haven't mastered. I tried planning our meal weekly, it was great as it helped me save time and from last minute worries. But, the problem is, I keep on listing the same food over and over again. I only know of a few ulam to cook! Haha.

How to Make Heart Shaped Hot dogs with eggs


I cooked heart-shaped hot dogs with eggs last Valentine's Day. I've been meaning to write about our #TeamBahay Valentine's Day Celebration but for countless valid and not valid reasons, it just didn't happen.

Merry Cheesy Christmas: Cheesy Buko Salad Recipe

Our not-so-little family
Christmas Day may be over, but I'm still feeling the Christmas vibes and yea the coming New Year! Oh how time flies. Anyway, how was your Christmas? I hope you were able to celebrate it with your loved ones, which is what really matters. As for me, it was a bit sad, but nevertheless I'm glad that I celebrated Christmas Eve with my family over a simple Noche Buena feast. On Christmas Day, we went to attend the mass which is our family tradition and then we had dinner at Dampa with my in laws. 

Okay so right now, I'm really curious about what you prepared for the Noche Buena. I believe that in festivities like Christmas, Pansit, Spaghetti, Fried Chicken and Buko or Fruit Salad are staples in most Filipino families. We all had those 4 dishes last Christmas Eve plus we had ham and fruits. I've been cooking creamy tuna spaghetti ever since I learned how in 2013, but this time around, I cooked Carbonara for the first time. At home, we love buko/fruit salad, we even make some even though there's no occasion and for the first time ever, I tweaked my original buko/fruit salad recipe. This time, I added Eden Original Cheese in it.


About two weeks ago, Eden Cheese sent a Christmas gift beautifully wrapped in a Christmas package. It contains ingredients for buko/fruit salad and Eden Cheese original. It may not be new to some, but cheese in a buko/fruit salad is something we've never tried before, so I was quite surprised and excited at the same time. And, surprisingly, it turned out great! It was, cheesy and creamier!


 If you also haven't tried it before just like me, it's not too late, you can prepare this on your Media Noche this coming New Years Eve or any occasions! So I'm sharing with you its super easy recipe, below:

Cheesy Buko/Fruit Salad



INGREDIENTS
  • 4 cups, Coconut, shredded
  • 30 oz, Fruit cocktail, drained
  • 1 cup, Pineapple tidbits, drained
  • 15 coz, Sweet corn kernels, drained
  • 12 oz, Kaong
  • 12 oz, Nata de coco
  • 14 oz, Condensed milk
  • 14 oz, Cream
  • 1/2 cup, Eden Cheese, cubed
  • 1/2 cup shredded Eden Cheese - for garnish.

PROCEDURE

1. In a large bowl, combine young coconut fruit cocktail, pineapple, corn, kaong, nata de coco, Eden cheese, condensed milk, and cream. Stir gentle to distribute.

2. Chill for a few hours or freeze until firm.

3. Garnish with shredded Eden cheese when ready to serve.



There you have it! Enjoy :)

FOOD: Creamy Tuna Pasta (Red Sauce)

It's already 2 in the morning and I am still wide awake! Remember about the Creamy Tuna Pasta I prepared for Kuya T's 4th birthday last September 15? I promised to make a Recipe post about it, so here it is!

We love Spaghetti and since I also love tuna, I just decided to put a twist on it and came up with this, it may not be an original Recipe but I came up with this on my own, didn't copy it from anyone.

Ingredients:
 
Spaghetti Noodles
Spaghetti Sauce
Century Tuna

Nestle Cream

Onions
Garlic
Salt
Cooking oil

Excuse me for using different brands, yan lang kase available (tee hee)
We, especially Kuya T and Jaear prefer the Filipino Style Sauce
If you like it Spicy, you can use the Hot and Spicy Century Tuna.
The size of the ingredients also depends on the number of people you will be serving this to, as for me I cooked 1 kilos of pasta, snack and dinner na rin. And the left over could still be served the next day, so hindi sayang.
Cooking Procedure
Pasta: 
1 Pour water in a large pot and bring to a boil
2. Put in salt and oil
3. Add the Spaghetti Noodles, and cook until tender.
4. Drain then set aside

Sauce:
1. In a pan, saute garlic and onion
2. Put in the Tuna and let it cook for 3-5 minutes
3. Add the Spaghetti Sauce, then let it simmer for 10-15 minutes. You can add salt if desired.
4. Add the Cream while continuously stirring for a minute.
5. Remove from heat and pour over to the cooked pasta and serve!

I was only able to use 1 Nestle Cream, according to J it's already okay na. So that depends on your taste preference. 


 Voila! Creamy Tuna Pasta (Red Sauce)
Same Filipino style spaghetti with a twist of Tuna and Cream. 

There you have it, easy and yummy you should try it too!
I'm hitting the sack now, Good night♥

Easy Cooking: Sardinas Patty

Hey Mommies! Have you ever been in a situation where you ran out of ideas to cook for your family or just too lazy to cook? Because I do, Most of the time! I am a full time mom to 2 kids, Kuya Tantan 3y/o and Athena 11 m/o and I am 6 months on the way with my 3rd child plus we don't have a Helper/yaya so yes I got a lot of duties to perform. So there are times when laziness attacks but of course family's needs are always my priority. (martir? ganyan talaga pag nanay)

Anyways I just wanna share my latest food imbento, which I call Sardinas Patty hehe can't think of anything creative to name it so yan na lang lol. Well, I don't know about you but I like Sardines I remember growing to this canned good since I was a child my mom would even cook it with malunggay leaves (sa province kase namen mahilig kame sa gulay :p). On the other hand J (my husband) doesn't really eat sardines until we lived together pero as much as possible ayaw talaga nya. But just a week ago we ran out of stock in the kitchen, nothing left except for Instant noodles and Sardines. It was raining so we can't go out to shop and didn't want to call for a food delivery so my creativity kicked in and that's when the Sardinas Patty was invented.
So here's the easy steps to make your own Sardinas Patty.
First, you have to separate the sardines/fish from the sauce/sarsa.
Second, Smash the sardines/fish. Your choice if you want it finely smashed or if you want it to have chunks.
Third, Add beaten eggs.
No need to add seasoning or salt, as the sardines has a strong taste already.
Fourth, Fry it!
Easy to prepare, easy to cook! And it tastes good, Winner kay J he didn't even expectt it was Sardines. It tastes better with ketchup.

And of course you wouldn't wanna waste the Sarsa/sauce so I just sauteed it with onion and poured over my rice, as if I can except J to do it haha! So I just cooked chicken noodle soup for him and Kuya Tantan. 
So there you have it, my latest invention para maiba naman. It's very easy, you can try it on your own. 
How about you mommies do you have any recipe invention? I would love to hear about it :)
