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

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
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
It’s almost Super Bowl Sunday folks. I couldn’t care less which teams are playing against each other, HeHe! We’re a Baseball family(Yankees Baby!). However, I do like the Super Bowl half-time show and of course the million-dollar funded commercials. Some are funny some are, ehhhhh. But most of them are clever and hilarious. That’s what I’m looking forward to. Plus the super bowl party food .
The best things to make for parties like Superbowl are appetizers and finger foods. You can easily buy prepared-stuff from grocery stores but if you’re like me, you prefer making things at home.
Here are a few EASY Super Bowl Sunday Party Ideas that you might want to serve your family and friends. Click the highlighted title link underneath some of the pictures to get the recipe.Read More
When I make spaghetti meat sauce for a spaghetti dinner I always end up with more sauce than the noodles. Throughout the years I’ve always been making too much spaghetti that gives us leftovers for 2-3 days worth of lunch. Fortunately, I have learned to save spaghetti sauce for other pasta dishes for future dinners. Sometimes I just ladle them into a jar then store that in the fridge to use a few days later. For longer storage, it’s best to store the extra sauce in a ziploc bag, then into the freezer.
So to use up a bag of frozen spaghetti meat sauce, I decided to use it with Corabella’s Mezzaluna 4-Cheese Ravioli. To make the dish more exciting and filling, I also added ricotta cheese and shredded cheese before baking in the oven. This Baked Ravioli With Meat Sauce & Ricotta Cheese is almost like the Baked Potato Gnocchi W/ Spinach & Ricotta Cheese without the spinach.

When browning ground beef (or pork, turkey), the meat seems to always be in clumps form. The usual way to un-clump the ground meat is by using a wooden spoon or a fork to break the meat apart. But for years I have been using one kitchen gadget that works even better in my opinion.Read More
I served this cheese and fresh fruits platter for lunch but this would also work nicely as party appetizers. Sometime this weekend, or the upcoming Halloween, or even Thanksgiving and Christmas. Super Bowl party? Sure, why not.
The good thing about this is that you can use any fruits you want. Whatever are in season most preferably.Read More
This is the first installment of my Budget Cooking: How To Stretch A 6 Pounds Pork Shoulder Into 5 Dishes For Family of 4 series. The $7.67 pork shoulder is technically 5.99 pounds but I’m just going to round it up to an even 6 pounds. This size of pork shoulder itself is good for either huge family dinners, formal or holiday dinners cooked as: Baked Pork Roast With Dry Rub, Crockpot Cooking: Southern Pork Barbeque, or give a couple more pounds to make a Lechon Kawali aka Deep Fried Pork Roast. But today, I’m going to show you how you can divide a pork shoulder to stretch into 5 different dishes to serve on different nights, for a family of 4.
FYI, the pictures are not glamorous because this is a real kitchen not some fancy decorated kitchen from a Food Network show. If you’re a vegetarian, well, don’t click “read more”…
There’s the evidence of $7.67 price...Read More
