The Sweet Taste Of Success

If you like working for yourself and enjoy ice cream and frozen yogurt, then consider opening your own frozen yogurt business. This is an endeavor that is often rewarding personally and financially. It's a business that will allow you to talk to the customers and get to know their likes and dislikes. Since there isn't a large variety of items that are sold, you likely won't be spending as much money on your product as ...

Pork Sinigang With Tamarind Pods

This is a very late post. If you noticed around the bowl, the table has Christmas decorations. I've completely forgotten about this Pork Sinigang With Tamarind Pods that I made last year when I found them at Walmart back in December. I was really surprised to see them there so I grabbed a pack right away to use for Sinigang. It brought me back to when I was a little girl and how my grandmother, ...

Chorizo And Leftover Cheeseburger Quesadilla

The Quesadilla night idea we had last week came after I was writing our dinner's menu in my kitchen chalkboard. Unless we're eating either pizza, spaghetti, tacos, or burgers, I always have to make something different for Emma. If this is your first time in this foodblog, my daughter has Autism and she's a bit of a picky eater. It's a texture thing. I get to be creative when it comes to her dinner combos. ...

Recipe: Venison Adobo With Green Beans Ingredients 1-2 pounds of venison, in medium chunks 1/2 cup soy sauce 1/2 cup vinegar 1tbsp of oil 2 cups of ...

Red Potatoes & Chorizo Frittata

Am I obsessed with frittata? At this point I can honestly say, yes I am. Can you blame me? It's the easiest but most scrumptious breakfast or brunch dish anyone could make anytime. Make it for dinner too if you want. Here's my new frittata creation from this past weekend's brunch, Red Potatoes & Chorizo Frittata.   Recipe: Red Potatoes & Chorizo Frittata Ingredients 4 sm red potatoes(wash thoroughly) 1 link of chorizo sausage 2 strings of scallions, chopped 6 eggs 1/2 cup ...

New Year’s Eve/Birthday Feast

We usually order take out on New Year's Eve because it also falls on my birthday but since Hubby and I already went on a lunch date the day before I've decided to cook instead. Plus, I've actually already planned it weeks ahead so cooking on my birthday is definitely something I wanted to do.   Maine entree was Southern Pork Barbecue cooked in the crock-pot.   Steamed fresh green beans with garlic powder seasoning.   Rice, of course and Margaret ...

Prime Rib On Christmas Eve

Food Lion had a Manager's Special sale on meat a few days before Christmas. Scott found a really good deal on this prime rib and lamb roast. He made me pick which meat we were going to devour on Christmas Eve. It was basically a life and death decision because as much as I wanted prime rib I also wanted to eat lamb. To make it easier I suggested to stop eating meat and just ...

Easy Appetizer Dish For Parties: Tortellini Skewers

I made these easy appetizer dish for my sister-in-law's Christmas party this past weekend. I really didn't know what to make at first. I knew there were going to be a variety of chips & dips plus the usual party appetizers so I wanted something different but didn't know what. I was scrolling Instagram and chanced upon tortellini skewers with mozzarella cheese and grape tomatoes. I was like, THERE IT IS!! I can't remember whose ...

Pillsbury Holiday Shape Christmas Tree Cookies

Before making our Christmas Sugar Cookies, Scott got Emma a box of Pillsbury Holiday Shape Cookies to bake in between. Something easy for her to do and to add into our baking series this year. These cookies were so good. The taste and texture are like shortbread cookies and they are so good dipped in cold milk. Just follow the instructions from the box. The cookies are cute and like I said, really good. Coincidentally, ...

Hershey Kisses Blossom Sugar Cookies

I made these Hershey Kisses Blossom Sugar Cookies on December 1st and I'm just posting the recipe now because well, I got busy decorating for Christmas. These cookies are the first batch of our Christmas Baking Series. At least that's what I'm calling our baking marathon anyway. 'Our' meaning me and my Sous Chef Miss Emma who is just absolutely loving all our baking extravaganza. We get to eat cookies afterwards so what's not to ...

Sweet Chili Fried Pork Chops

I love sweet chili sauce. I use it as a dip for lumpias/egg rolls, sometimes as the sauce base for stir-fry, a marinade, and my favorite and easy way of enjoying it is a sauce to coat with either chicken wings, fish nuggets, or pork chops. Recipe: Sweet Chili Fried Pork Chops Ingredients 4-5 pieces medium pork chops 1 1/2 cup of flour 1½ tsp of salt 1 tsp of black pepper 1 tsp of paprika 1 tsp of chili powder oil for ...

No-Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake

For our Thanksgiving dessert, I went for the No-Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake instead of the usual baked pumpkin cheesecake with dulce de leche topping. I just wanted to try the cheesecake prepared in a different way and in a way compare which is better. Baked or No-Bake? After having been tried the no-bake version I think I'll go back to baking my cheesecake next year. Don't get me wrong, the no-bake cheesecake was good and easier ...

Christmas Wish List: Fondue Set

While I was organizing my pantry when we first moved into our new home I somehow broke the pot of my fondue set. I calculated my movement wrong which I'm usually good at when reaching for stuff on higher shelves but not that day apparently. So I have been without a fondue pot now. I really miss having our chocolate fondue and cheese fondue nights. Since Christmas is upon us, why not start a Christmas ...

Our 2016 Thanksgiving Feast

LATE POST: I finally have time to share our Thanksgiving feast this year which was spent with my brother-in-law's family same like last year. Pardon my lack of perfectly styled pictures because the reality is, when we're all together and we're all ready to eat there's just really no time to make everything pretty for pictures. Nevertheless, everything was delicious. Super easy turkey seasoning. I went with creole butter this year. I usually rub butter on ...

Bacon & Bleu Cheese Frittata

Scott was originally going to make bacon and bleu cheese omelet this past Saturday but along the way we agreed that bacon and bleu cheese frittata would be even better. My husband and I are bleu cheese fiends so we can pretty much eat anything with bleu cheese on it. And hello, BACON! Out of all the frittatas I've made so far, this is the best one yet!   Recipe: Bacon & Bleu Cheese Frittata Ingredients 4-5 pieces of ...

Pork Sotanghoon Noodles With Carrots And Snow Peas

This Pork Sotanghoon Noodles With Carrots And Snow Peas was my comfort food last week. I wanted to drink but it was still a weekday and as much as I love wine, believe it or not, I'm capable of waiting until Friday night. Or at least Thursday night since it was a 3-day weekend for everyone here. Anyway, I already have a few sotanghoon/pancit recipes here but here's one more if you need another with ...

Funnel Cakes From Funnel Cake Kit

https://www.instagram.com/p/BMeXdOoDoT6/ I found this Funnel Cake Kit at Walmart for $7.88. I was just really pointing at it to my husband but he grabbed and put it in the cart fast than you can say funnel. He insisted I said 'I want one' when what I really said what, 'oh look Babe a funnel cake kit.' He Said She Said, basically. Who really wanted to eat funnel cake so badly he supposedly heard his wife say ...

Fried Pickles, Anyone?

My husband had been talking about fried pickles for quite some time now and after chatting about it one day on Face Time, he came home with 2 jars of pickles. So off I fried them pickles. They're actually better than I've anticipated and as you may have guessed by now, yes fried pickles are good accompaniment to either burgers, hotdogs, or fish fry. I adapted the recipe from Food Network. Recipe: Fried Pickles, Anyone? Ingredients 1 jar ...
