I love pancakes. Even my kids have soft spot when it comes to pancakes. When I was younger, I could still remember my mom making pancakes for us every weekend, or at least once a month. Now that I’m a mom, I try my best to continue that tradition with my kids.Maya (yes, the ready-mix pancakes) is my favorite when it comes to making pancakes. However, I decided to make one from scratch since it is much cheaper. Plus, the ingredients are not tipid and I want to give this a try too. After resorting to good…

#TMCKitchenSeries: Strawberry Banana Crumb Loaf and Cupcakes

at

I don’t like wasting and throwing food. I would rather have it inside my tummy than see it in trash, if that even makes sense. Every time I buy fruits and wasn’t able to eat it right on time, I just bake something out of it, which is what I did with my overripe bananas and strawberries. So I turned to good ol’ Google, typed in strawberry baking recipes and here’s what I got – Strawberry Crumb Loaf from Bakehappy.net. However, I added my own twist into it by putting bananas in the recipe. I was…

Have you checked “The Momma Cooks” category? If I’m not sharing my baking recipes, I always cook anything that involves chicken.

#TMCKitchenSeries: Easy to Bake Carrot Cake

at

 It was my husband’s birthday last month. I was contemplating on whether to buy 28 cupcakes for him (since he’s 28) OR to just bake my own cake. And since he’s a sucker for homemade stuff and prefers my baking over store-bought sweets, I decided to bake him a birthday cake instead. We have a favorite carrot cake store somewhere in Greenhills. It was really the best carrot cake we’ve ever tasted. So, I said maybe it’s time to make my own carrot cake. Since it’s my husband’s birthday, it…

I always make it a point to bake every week. And last week, I decided to combine fruit cocktail and brownies into one. When it comes to brownies, people always use nuts, chocolate chips, corn flakes or even colored sprinkles. I have never eaten a brownie with fruits in it (okay fine, I tried the ones with cherry). So when I saw the recipe from a food magazine, which combines fruit cocktail and brownies, I decided to give it a try. And mommas, I promise you it tastes really good.So here’s how to make easy fruit cocktail…

I’m a sucker for red velvet cupcakes. Every time I pass by Sophie’s Mom or Vanilla Cupcake Bakery, red velvet cupcake will always be part of my “must buy” list for cupcakes.
