Back in February we had a brunch at IHOP where my husband and I both ordered one of the new breakfast items on the menu. The Fiesta Omelette with corn cakes on the side. Because we ordered something new, they’ve asked us to fill up a form to review the dish and we’ll each get $3 rebate in the mail. We said sure and almost 3 months alter, we got the rebate cards...Read More

Pappardelle noodles are flat and wide noodles similar to fettuccine. I decided to use them for a Ricotta & Meat Sauce Lasagna dish. Please don’t get technical and start lecturing me on pasta shapes or whatever. I wanted to use the Pappardelle attachment for my pasta maker and figured they’re wide enough to pass along as lasagna.

Make this for your future weekend brunch with your family. Unless you’re going to IHOP of course.
I had leftover crumbled bleu cheese from the time Scott made his black and blue burgers a few days ago and he suggested I should sprinkle some in an omelet for breakfast. It just sounded so delicious so I did. It pays to listen to our husband sometimes. You’ll be enjoying a delicious breakfast in return, HAH!
When I bought the can of condense milk the last time I went grocery shopping I actually intended to use it for fudgy chocolate chips brownies. I went on a baking a couple of weekends ago wherein I made self-frosting nutella cupcakes and nutella-chocolate chips cookies and thought I’d make brownies too. I decided to hold off on the brownies and save it for when all the goodies are gone.
When I finally got to making the brownies, I changed my mind. I was looking at the can of condensed milk and it said something about a triple layer cookies bars recipe inside the label. I checked it out and made a mental inventory of the ingredients I have in the pantry. I have all of them, plus a pack of walnuts which I figured would make a great topping.
So that’s the story of how this Too Decadent Triple Layer Cookie Bars With Walnuts came about. I’ll explain the “too decadent” part after the recipe.

On the many times I’ve made shepherd’s pie in my life, I’ve never thought of adding shredded cheese on top of the mashed potatoes until a couple of days ago. Just for a twist, I figured, why not? And it turned out really good. Then again, how can you mess up sprinkled cheese on any kind of casserole dish, right? Try this next time too.
I love breakfast bagel sandwiches. I have a blueberry bagel sandwich with egg, bacon, cheese, and cream cheese in the archives. It’s a family’s favorite. However, I’ve always thought bagel sandwiches would be so much easier to bite into if the bagels aren’t so thick. So when I found a Thomas thin bagel in the bread aisle I was like, HALLELUJAH.
That’s the pack of cin...Read More
Are you getting ready for your Cinco de Mayo party? Here are 15 ideas you could make to make your fiesta even more festive. You don’t have to make all of them of course. I personally would pick the 7-layer dip, salmon tacos, pork bulgogi tacos, and mexican lasagna for my own Cinco de Mayo party. Plus Margarita of course. Oh and Tequila shots. Ay Papi!
Advance Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone! Enjoy the dishes and let me know how you parties turn out.Read More
For my son’s 15th birthday, we decided to try out Pizza Hut’s Crazy Cheesy Crust Pizza(+wings). It sure looked good in the commercial but then again pretty much everything looks so much better in ads. Check out that picture above. Perfectly round and just waiting for you to grab it.
In reality this is what it looks like. That’s a large size by the way...Read More
When I’m finishing up the last groceries in the fridge I usually make tacos out of meat or leftover veggies. Like these Beef Green Pepper Corn & Eggs Tacos. I had 2 pieces of thin steaks, 1 green pepper, and a little bit of leftover corn from a side dish some other night. I didn’t have any shredded cheese left though so I figured I’d make scrambled eggs instead to serve as topping for the tacos.

More often than not asking children to to eat their veggies results in a pout, or worse, a tantrum. It would have been great if commercially-produced foods were nutritious but reality dictates the opposite.
Instead of force feeding your little one’s boiled broccoli, or reminding him every meal time how unfortunate other kids are to not have any food at all why not make meal times more fun by educating your little about foods from around the world. You could create themes which should be fun for both you and your little one.
Here are some healthy and tasty ideas to get you started:
German Golden Pretzel – German kids just love pretzel dipped in mustard, it goes down well as a treat. For a better-tasting version, you may opt for the one dipped in honey and mustard.
Chinese Peking Duck with Wheat Noodles – in a country as vast as China, it is expected that their cuisine is also as vast. In Beijing, one of the most sought out foods is Peking duck served with a special sauce. Pair this with noodles made of wheat (which is widely grown in the region) and you’re in Chinese heaven!
Japanese Yakatori – this is a meal in Japan that is made of skewered beef or chicken chunks. Japanese kids love Yakatori served with sweet sauce such as that of teriyaki. For safety purposes, remove the meat from the skewer before serving.Read More
