No Bake Layered Blueberry Strawberry Cheesecake

      I brought this to our 2000 Hail Mary Prayer Group on the first Saturday this month and although I had to leave early to get some sleep for work, they said that it looks like the Filipino “Sapin-Sapin” and tastes better than the No-Bake Blueberry Cheesecake that I brought the other day….

Reminiscing 2016 & Positively Riding the Year 2017

  So many of you to thank from the bottom of my heart, concentrated on getting well from the Christmas weeks of 2016. I apologize for not messaging each and everyone of you as I lead a very busy RN life ( we cannot use cellphone while working unless we’re  on break ) so this is…

Salmon Scrap Cakes

Amazing salmon scraps from the wet market have been turned into savory and scrumptious cakes; the procedure is not as complicated as you think. Let’s get started but first remember that these scraps came  from whole salmon that the fishmonger trimmed off to sell you  five to six dollar/lb.salmon steaks. Don’t ignore the scrappy salmon,…

Not So Sweet Banana Mini Cakes

I didn’t realize that I had so many frozen bananas in my upright freezer, so I made these banana cakes; I used maple syrup, half cane sugar, and granulated sugar, so overall it isn’t too sweet. Also, I found some oven-safe paper bakeware from Homegoods, the website is welcomehomebrands.com if you’re interested in buying some….

Swedish Meatballs in Spaghetti Nests

Off from work, so we decided to head to Ikea in Hicksville and bought all the meatballs, beef, chicken, vegetables, lox, and everything else you could think of. I’ve suffered long enough with my flimsy and aged kitchen gadgets, so I bought new ones (I still forgot to get hanging hooks for my improvised hanging…

Chocolatey, Orangey Banana Cake Squares

Experimenting again, blame it on my genes, sorry I’m not necessarily traditional when it comes to food recipes. So let’s get creative and see if chocolate and orange can blend together.   INGREDIENTS: 2 cups of flour 1/2 tsp. baking powder 1/2 tsp. baking soda 1/2 tsp. salt 1 cup butter 1/4 cup white granulated…

Quick & Easy Beef Soup Stew

As it’s been quite cold and busy in New York and our life is hurried all the time, I decided to revise the tedious Filipino Bulalo and  make the recipe quicker and easier to make; no pressure cooking for the beef (I dislike soggy beef anyway) and simply boiling all of the ingredients including the…

Vegetable Frittata

  Since I was off for 3 nights, I decided to cook up a storm. Since all my grown up kids are into the gym and eating protein and low carbs, they can’t say no to eggs, especially when they’re tasty and loaded with a lot of fresh vegetables.   INGREDIENTS: 6  eggs (lightly beaten)…

Crunchy Banana Cake Slices

I was looking to make a healthy banana cake, but I tweaked the recipe by adding a tablespoon of my Jamaican rum cake mixture and surprisingly it came out to be a very crunchy cake on top with some good moisture on the inside with a tinge of rum flavor. It looks and tastes so…
