I'm a self-confessed coffee addict. Coffee is a huge part of my day as I cannot function properly without it and one of the things I always look forward to in the morning is enjoying my first cup, while taking in all the beauty that's slowly unfolding. I guess it's safe enough to say that I cannot live without coffee. In our futrue dream home, we plan to have a coffee bar/ library-it's a must for coffee junkie bookworm me.

Shakey’s Super Grand Slammin’ Deal

Shakey's Super Grand Slammin' Deal Poster

There's always something appetizing about the look of pizzas that I can't seem to resist. Whether one is a food lover or not, no matter what time of the day is, everyone finds pizza this way. Is it just me, or is pizza more sumptuous to eat along with a better half? Say, pasta or chicken? What better way to enjoy your favorite slice of pizza than by getting it in a bundle. Luckily, Shakey's is way ahead of us as they created their Super Grand Slammin' Deal. The Shakey's Super Grand Slammin' ... [ Read More ]

The Bento Mommas held their bento box workshop at The Urban Food Collective at Commerce Center in Alabang. Meet Moneigh, April and Kaye the 3/5 ... [ Read More ]

I'm starting to get the hang of bento-ing and luckily, I've got a few tools to get me started. And because Halloween is just around the corner, I've decided to make a Halloween bento snack box for my darling ... [ Read More ]

Baked_Cheesy_Garlic_Fish_2

One of the challenges I face as a homemaker is preparing the weekly menu for my family. While I rotate my family's favorite dishes every now and then, I try to come up with new dishes that hopefully they would enjoy. Currently I am at a stage where I need not to worry much about what they want as my children are still too young to request for a TexMex night of tacos & burritos or an All-American night of burgers, fries and pizza. I figured I should enjoy this for I only have a few more years ... [ Read More ]
