Giada’s Simple Tomato Sauce

This is Food Network’s Giada de Laurentiis’ recipe for Simple Tomato Sauce. I always make a batch of this whenever I have the time and store it in the fridge or in the freezer. This is great for those time that I’m too busy (or more likely,too lazy) to cook, I just cook some pasta, […]

Raisin Pecan Oatmeal Cookies

One of the best cookies I’ve tried.. it’s chewy, nutty, yummy and healthy.  I didn’t expect I will like it this much because it doesn’t have my fave ingredient: chocolates!!  I was tempted to add chocolate chips but this recipe has great reviews over at the food network site so I decided I will just replace the […]

Nigella’s Chocolate Chip Muffins

A good healthy and hearty breakfast is what we all need and should have every morning but sometimes I like to prepare something quick, easy and yummy-thank goodness it’s not-oatmeal or rice again- breakfast  like these chocolate muffins which my kids and yes, my rice-loving husband too like it very much. These  are so much like […]

Carrot Muffins

One of my favorite carrot cupcake  muffin’s simple and easy and healthier than most carrot cupcakes   muffins recipes I’ve tried. This is similar to this recipe but quicker because this one doesn’t have chopped  dates, and that save me extra time  plus I did not make the creamcheese frosting because honestly in my opinion it didn’t need any […]

Cabbage Rolls (Galumpkis)

I first saw this dish in a publication way way back when I was in college and I said to myself that I’m gonna make this dish one day…after a decade and a half, I finally got to make it..yay!  I’ve since lost that recipe I’ve been so meaning to make, luckily there’s internet already and I […]

Indonesian Ginger Chicken

I can’t believe I did not make this sooner…this is such a super yummy and really, really easy dish.    There are only a few ingredients and I have them in stock.   I made this the same day I got the recipe- I have all the ingredients for the marinade, and we had it for dinner the next day.  This […]

Apple Cheesecake Streusel Bars

I made this really yummilicious bars last year , it’s like an apple crumble and cheesecake rolled into one.  The recipe is from Paula Deen, it’s originally with caramel topping but I didn’t add  it ( actually, I overlooked the caramel topping..totally missed it,  hehee);  if you want you can use any ready-made caramel topping or dulce de leche.  […]

Croissant Bread Pudding

Bread pudding is one of my favorite childhood eats, but the bread pudding that I used to eat, I have to admit, wasn’t as delicious as this croissant bread pudding.   It’s not surprising though because the deliciousness of  a bread pudding depends on the quality of the bread you are using. I once saw […]
