Easy Recipes: Cauliflower Fried Rice

I decided to go the Ketogenic route four weeks ago at the encouragement of a friend of mine who now looks fabulous, by the way, 5 months after she’s started on it. I was hesitant at first, not because I don’t think I can give up the carbs and sugar, but because I wasn’t sure I could afford it. You see, it would mean having to substitute many of our food products to keto-friendly versions. Later on, after reading up on it and studying my pro’s and con’s, I realized it doesn’t have to be complicated. Of course some substitutes […]

Easy Recipes: Mushroom and Garlic pasta

I just might be sharing more easy recipes in the next few weeks here on my blog until after my son’s season with Matilda ends. (Yep, he’s in the show alternating as Nigel and it’s been crazy for us schedule-wise the past few weeks) Sorry guys, being a stage mother takes a lot of your energy) That’s actually how I ended up cooking Mushroom and Garlic pasta today. We’re due to visit the supermarket but I feel too lazy to go out and do so and I didn’t consider Honest Bee because we’ve got a tight budget this week. Hello […]

Food of my Childhood: Mom’s Kare Kare

I’m an avid fan of only one Kare Kare – my mom’s. Unless it’s crispy Kare Kare, then I may not be very eager to taste your Kare Kare if you serve it to me. Especially not the one using Ox tripe.

I grew up eating my mom’s Kare Kare, which she usually served on Sunday lunches. I’ve always looked forward to Sunday lunches because my mom always prepared great feasts on Sundays because that’s when […]

Easy Recipes: Scotch Eggs with Sweet & Sour Sauce

I first tasted Scotch Eggs when my friend from downstairs, Edz, the woman who taught me how to make Chicken Fajitas, brought it over for dinner with me and the kids. Our husbands were both out of town on a kids ministry event and since we live in the same apartment building, we decided to have dinners together during the time our husbands were away. I learned later on that Scotch Eggs are common in the UK. You can find them being sold in corner shops and supermarkets, much like how you see Kwek Kwek at the mall food court. […]

Easy Recipes: No Knead Artisan Bread

I love baking! It helps me relax and take my mind off the stressful and sometimes, dreary stuff that goes on in my head sometimes. I think I mentioned once that I even tried my hand at the baking business. My dad paid for a few workshops and off I went selling my cookies and my goodies at local bazaars. Alas! I lack the entrepreneurial skills I need to grow my income so I ended up letting the idea go and just baked for my children, which, to be honest, I find much more fun. Anyway, a friend of mine, […]
