Easy Recipes: Creamy Chicken & Mushroom dish with corn on the side

We call this recipe Chicken a la Chy after my friend, Phoebe a.k.a “Chy” to her childhood friends,  who introduced the dish to us. But in the cook book Cherished Traditions that was published by our South church a couple of years ago, they entitled it “Chicken a la King….and Phoebe.” What it actually is, is a creamy chicken & mushroom dish served with corn (and apparently, chips!) on the side. But you can call it any way you like. I realized that I haven’t shared any recipes lately and since we cooked this tonight, I thought I’d share with you how […]

When the home schooling journey ends

We’ve been home schooling our eldest since he was three years old. It was a tad too early to do so, but I was an eager mom who knew nothing much about the movement back then, so I thought the earlier we start teaching him the ABC’s and the 123’s, the better. Of course, throughout the years, my mindset has changed, after expanding my homeschooling circle, reading several books and blogs about it, and the experience itself has taught me to appreciate and enjoy each of our children for both their strengths and their weaknesses, their impressive qualities and their individual quirks.

We don’t need little geniuses

For the past few weeks, my husband, Jay, and I would bring the children to play at our new favorite spot in BGC. There, Jay would teach the two older kids to bat and catch ball, while I look over our youngest who seems to enjoy gathering sticks and building structures using rocks and dust more. On other days, we let them just chase each other in a game of tag or roll down the hilly mounds while we sit by the picnic tables munching on the sandwiches or chips that we bring along with us. A video posted by […]

Press Release: Bubble Man dishwashing liquid and my (not-so) sensitive hands

I can’t begin to tell you how glad I am to have been introduced to Bubble Man dishwashing liquid last year. It’s the only dish washing liquid that doesn’t make my hands dry, peel and itch. My hands aren’t exactly a pretty sight because of my allergies. I don’t remember exactly how the allergies in my two fingers started, but I’m pretty sure it has something to do with the strong chemicals in the dish washing soap we used. Mind you, I don’t have delicate skin, I’m used to getting my hands dirty, but the chemicals in the dish washing […]

Press Release: Great Kids and Great Expectations

One of the sponsors of Mommy Bloggers Philippines last Christmas party was Great Expectations, a maternity line created by the same people behind Great Kids PH. I was given Gift Certificates to check out their products and do a little shopping. Since Great Kids PH carries clothes designed for little girls (and I have three boys!), I opted to give my GC’s to my fellow mom blogger and friend, Nhessie Agustin, to add to her own GC’s so she can buy more outfits for her baby daughter whom I’m claiming to be my inaanak, haha! Nhessie sent me photos of the […]
