Easy Recipes: Dona Elena’s Easy Pesto Pasta

Hi everyone! I have fifteen minutes before I wake my kids up for their Musical Theatre and Hip Hop classes. This afternoon, I’m accompanying two of them to their recording in Makati. That’s how busy the day’s going to be. So what I’ve got on the cooker right now is Dona Elena Linguine pasta boiling in water. I’m packing the kids’ baon and I’ve decided to prepare Dona Elena’s Easy Pesto Pasta because they love it. I made a video a few weeks back on how to do this. The feedback on it was crazy! People, I’m not sure yet […]

Easy Recipes: Cheesy Low Carb Eggplant & Broccoli Dish

I honestly don’t know how to call this dish so I’m just going to be literal about it — I call it Cheesy Low Carb Eggplant & Broccoli dish. I just came up with it last night, but I think I’ve based it on an eggplant cracker dip I once saw. Only that I added broccoli and beef, and left out the cream for this one. Anyway, I’ve been struggling to go back to a low carb diet (just so hard to steer clear of rice, bread, and pasta when you’re a Filipino!) and I thought last night was as […]

Easy Recipes: Ketogenic Chocolate Mug Cake

I’ve been wanting to try this recipe on YouTube for so long, but it’s kinda tricky to put together the ingredients because we sort of have a fixed budget for groceries.

Some keto-friendly products are not really available at the usual supermarkets or if you do find them there, like Swerve or Almond flour, they’re a little too expensive than when you buy them from independent distributors and suppliers. So I’ve had most of these ingredients […]

How to Make Easy Choco-Banana Milkshakes

No need for Vanilla Ice Cream! I’ve blogged before about my two younger kids’ YouTube Channel, Home Cooking with the Tornadoes. They love playing around in the kitchen and I thought that they can learn a lot about food and how to prepare them by actually turning them into cute little chefs. Of course, being the mom that I am, I made them do their thing on video, haha! Anyway, Judah’s request for this week’s episode is Milk Shakes. Most milkshake recipes I’ve seen online require Vanilla Ice Cream, but I remembered that my mom had a milkshake recipe that […]

Home Cooking with the Tornadoes

I promised the kids that I will teach them to cook more this school year. We started our home school year in January and home cooking would be a great life skill to teach them. Besides, they love helping me out in the kitchen. They don’t mind chopping veggies and would beg me sometimes to let them put the ingredients into the pot, so why not take advantage of their interest in the kitchen, right? So I started teaching them basic Filipino dishes, like Sinigang (Tamarind soup), Chicken Adobo, Tinolang Manok (Boiled Chicken in ginger soup) and some of their […]
