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 ...

Knorr Pork Sinigang With Sweet Peppers, Green Onions, & Green Beans

While reading the book, The Butcher by Jennifer Hillier, I thought about spending a whole week in my kitchen cooking Filipino dishes. Pinoy dishes like Adobo which is basically, sort of, the star in the story aside from 'The Butcher' of course were prominent in the story. There were also references to lumpias, champorado, and sinigang. The Butcher is a psychological drama with the Filipino flair thanks to the grandmother of one of the main ...

Margaret Holmes Simple Suppers Review

We were first introduced to Margaret Holmes when our neighbor Ms. Peggy invited us to her family's Easter dinner a few years ago. She served Margaret Holmes Collard Greens as one of the side dishes and it was really good. I love collard greens but I don't make it that often because it takes a while to cook and it needs to be seasoned well. I have no expertise on collard greens. I think I've ...

How Do You Serve Your Tacos?

This might be a silly question because really, how else can you serve a taco but by filling a taco shell with the usual taco fixings? What I meant was, do you prefer to serve the fillings in separate bowls and everyone will build their own or do you assemble the tacos beforehand then family members or guests would just pick however many tacos they want to eat? This is one way I serve my tacos. ...

Angry Birds Freezer Bars

Who doesn't like freezer pops during the Summer? In this humidity albeit rainy weather, freezer pops really helps keeping us cool and refreshed. Generally, we're satisfied with regular freezer pops and we try our best to avoid the novelty brands as much as we can. However, when you have a 6 yr old who is head over heels in love with Angry Birds, sometimes you just have to indulge. She saw this box of Angry ...

Farm Rich Italian Style Meatballs Sub For Lunch

While meat shopping at Food Lion last Saturday we walked by the pasta aisle and saw these microwavable palm-sized bowl of meatballs. The picture of the meatballs with marinara sauce looked yummy. But I think everyone knows by now that in most grocery items, the real product is so much different than the pictured ad. Not to mention it's $4 prize for a small package. The meatballs swimming in yummy marinara sauce must have haunted my ...

More International Delight Coffee Creamers

I first wrote about how much we love the International Delight Coffee Creamers back in June 2012. I was basking in the flavors of Southern Butter Pecan, Cold Stone Sweet Cream, and Almond Joy. I mentioned in that post that we'd be trying new ID flavors, starting with Cinnabon and Heath. We did of course, plus other flavors. I was really so excited about the Cinnabon flavor but unfortunately this didn't ...

Better Oats

If you've been Feistycook's avid reader you'd know that I'm not a breakfast eater. I'm more of a brunch kind of girl. But I make sure I keep up with our occasional weekend breakfast when my husband is off from work. It's always more fun to have huge breakfast of bacon, eggs, hashbrown, or pancakes, or waffles when everyone in the family is present, just as it is required in our family to eat dinner ...

Potato Gnocchi With Leftover Lemon Chicken & Butter Garlic Caper Sauce

Ever since I got the box of new batch of Corabella pasta products I have been itching to make something with the potato gnocchi. I could've made the Baked Potato Gnocchi W/ Spinach & Ricotta Cheese right away but I'm going to reserve that recipe for some other time. I want to make something new to present here in the foodblog. The new recipe presented itself the day after we had lemon chicken. There ...
