tmckitchenseries-2-simple-and-yummy-recipes-using-alaska-evap-and-condensada

Mother’s Day came a bit late for me this year. Still, better late than never, don’t you think? Last Tuesday, I got a package from Nuffnang and Alaska full of Evaporated and Condensed Milk plus Recipe Cards mommas can easily whip in the kitchen. I also got a preserved floral arrangement from Te Amo Floristeria (IG: @teamofloristeria), which I absolutely love. Never really a flowers-type of girl, but I wouldn’t say no to this, especially when the husband seem to forgot that he owed me one for years. Haha! On a serious note…

#TMCKitchenSeries: Another Easy-Peasy Chicken Recipe

at

Work, kids’ activities, and the Holiday season are getting in the way the past few weeks that I wasn’t able to cook “properly.” I’ve been cooking the same quickie meals and re-heating leftover foods to save time and so I can focus on other tasks (like laundry!). Thankfully, I was able to slow things down this week and get back on the kitchen. I saw this recipe from Tasty’s Facebook page, so I decided to replicate it and made it easier for me. Say hello to Cheesy Tomato Chicken (okay, I just made that up…

#TMCKitchenSeries : Give Your Beef Stir-Fry a Twist with This Recipe

at

What comes to your mind when you hear, “Beef Stir Fry?” When I do this, I usually cook beef sirloin strips in onion, garlic, a little bit of soy sauce, salt, pepper, and any vegetable I can find in the fridge. It is a simple dish I can easily whip in a few minutes, excluding the slicing and preparation time. Plus, I can cook this in big batches and re-heat anytime. Apparently, cooking the same dish over and over, no matter how yummy it is, can make the dish less exciting. Since I am the designated cook at…

#TMCKitchenSeries: The 15-Minute Pork Stroganoff

at

I am such a sucker for quickie meals. I am able to save time from cooking, which I could use to do other equally important stuff – like doing the laundry or teaching my kids. This is why I enjoy preparing make-ahead meals because it is so convenient, time-friendly, and I don’t have to worry about what to cook the following day. Read: The Benefits of Meal PlanningOne of the quickie meals I mastered these days is Pork Stroganoff. While I was browsing for recipes for stroganoff, I was a bit disappointed to find out…

#TMCKitchenSeries: Easy Baon Ideas for Your Little Einstein

at

It’s back to school once again. One of the biggest challenges (so far) during school days – aside from waking up early – is preparing baon for my little one. As much as possible, I want to prepare healthy, natural meals and avoid store-bought snacks for my daughter’s baon. At the same time, my daughter’s school encourage healthy snacks, which I plan to abide. I’m no expert in making baon and I’m still in the process of learning making bento meals. In the meantime, you can try these simple and easy-to-do baon ideas…

#TMCKitchenSeries: Fish and Tofu in Oyster Sauce + Few Tips when Frying Food

at

I love tofu, whether fried, baked, or even steamed. When I was younger, I remember my lola making this tofu dish with oyster sauce, garlic, and some herbs I can’t recall. I could finish an entire plate of tofu in just one sitting, she had to set aside for other people in the house. LOLI wasn’t able to replicate that dish, but I did try. Since I am more of a one-pan-only kind of cook to save me time from washing, I decided to add more to this tofu dish. Say hello…

#TMCKitchenSeries: Easy Peasy Garlic Chicken

at

It’s been a while since I last posted a recipe. Since I am currently yaya-less, I am officially in charge of doing the cooking. This also means I have to whip dishes that are quick and easy to do since I still have two kids trolling along, plus online work and gazillion household chores I never get to do. Anyway, my husband and I love chicken that we could it eat everyday. Since I want to stay true to “Easy Kitchen Recipes” mantra, I came up with this dish: Garlic Chicken. The good thing about this…

#TMCKitchenSeries: Chicken ala King in Croissant

at

I love chicken. I love anything cream-based. This is why any dishes that combine these two will be a surefire hit on my tastebuds. One of this is Chicken ala King. Since I am yaya-less for the past few months, I became in charge of cooking. I admit I am not a kitchen diva, which is why I needed good ol’ Google and my mom’s recipe notebook to keep me company in the kitchen. One day, when my kids decided to be in their best behavior, I tried cooking Chicken ala King. Thankfully, I did…

#TMCKitchenSeries: Jumpstart Your Morning With Breakfast Oats

at

Motherhood changed me in so many ways, my weight included. From XS, I jumped to medium and refused to buy anything with L on it. It didn’t bother me that much since my weight is still “fine” with my height. … until the dresses I bought last December don’t fit me anymore. It was a wake up call for me. Not only because of my clothes but also my health. I am perfectly fine now with no medical conditions, but of course, I wouldn’t wait for that to happen. That is why I am making a…

#TMCKitchenSeries: The Day I Cooked Ribs for Valentine’s Day

at

If you checked my posts about the recipes I do at home, you will notice that I always use chicken and pork. I’m no kitchen diva and cooking is not really my thing so I stick to the basics. My husband and I are not fans of going out during V-Day. Instead of a fancy dinner in a posh restaurant, we decided to stay in and cook something new. And yes, he requested for ribs. It was my first time to cook ribs and to be honest, I have no idea how to do this. I…

#TMCKitchenSeries: Pork and Beef Tortilla Wrap + My (Not So) Secret Ingredient to Make the Sauce Taste Better

at

My husband and I love eating out. On date nights, we enjoy trying out new restaurants and getting back to old favorites. Now that we have two kids tagging along, it is hard (and stressful!) to eat out. What we do is we just buy ingredients from the grocery and cook at home. One of our favorite afternoon (and midnight LOL) snack food is tortilla wraps for two reasons:  It is easy to make.  It is fun to experiment with.  Here is my version of Beef Tortilla Wraps: Saute onion and garlic in olive. I…

#TMCKitchenSeries: The Simplest White Sauce Pasta You Can Make

at

I love pasta in all forms. Since then, I prefer cooking my own pasta meals instead of buying from restos. It was a good thing my husband loves pasta too, which makes it easier for me in the kitchen since I am not the best cook around.Few weeks ago, we attended our neighbor’s birthday party. They served the simplest yet yummiest white sauce pasta. It’s just a cream-based pasta, but not carbonara, where they used fusilli for noodles, chicken, and lots of Parmesan. Since my husband is craving for it, I decided to replicate it, which…

#TMCKitchenSeries: Breaded Parmesan Chops

at

I was waiting for my preschooler outside the classroom so I decided to browse my reliable online magazines to keep me busy. Then I came across this simple recipe, which includes breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese and pork chop. It’s been a while since I last set foot on the kitchen and cook something for the family. So I told my ever-reliable yaya that it’s my turn to cook dinner. Say hello to Breaded Parmesan Chops. It’s pretty easy. Start by seasoning pork chops with salt and pepper. Set aside. In my case, I…

#TMCKitchenSeries: Easy Chili con Carne with Hormel ChiliΒ 

at

One of my favorite go-to restaurants is Mexicali. On rare occasions that my husband and I decided to watch a movie on the big screen, we always pass by Mexicali to order ground beef burrito and cheese and garlic quesadilla for our movie snack. Last weekend (and because we forgot to bring extra cash for lunch out. LOL), we decided to eat in Mexicali. We still ordered burrito but this time, we added chili con carne among our favorites. Of course, we got bitin with the serving, although a bowl of chili is enough to fill two…

#TMCKitchenSeries: Mango Crumb Muffins

at

There’s mango overload at home. I already ate it as it is (everyday), made mango shake (every other day) and used it for mango-banana float since I don’t like throwing food away. I even gave out mangoes to my parents and neighbors since we can’t finish everything with only three adults in the house. My husband told me to bake something using mangoes. It’s been a while since I last baked so I decided to do it. I asked my good friend, Google, to look for a recipe for mango muffins / cupcakes and came…
