Healthy Meal: Pan-fried Tofu with Mixed Ground Beef and Veggies

Image
Being a mom, we are used to waking up early and sleep late. Making sure that everything is in place and ready for the next day. It is the same with the meal that I prepare for my family.

A one-dish meal that we can share during lunch or dinner time. When I say one dish meal, it means it's already packed with all the nutrients and vitamins that our body needs, especially for growing up kids.

What's good about the one dish meals aside from it having a full meal in one, it is also not time-consuming. You can finish a simple dish in 15-30 minutes.


As long as you have the right ingredients and seasoning in your kitchen, preparing a yummy and healthy dish will be easy.

If I don't have much time to do grocery shopping, I usually check what's available in the fridge or in our food stock.

Here is one of the recipes that I can share with you that you can also prepare for your family

Luxury at Home: A gourmet meal to kick off your evening

Image
You don't always need to go on expensive trips on a weekend or a fine dining experience to relieve that stress, you can always maximize relaxation in the convenience of your own home.

Giving yourself some "me time" does not mean you need to spend and splurge in luxury to give yourself a treat. a simple preparation at home while playing the relaxing playlist that you kept on your phone for a while is a great way to start, no shopping required unless there's something that you specifically need for your pampering.

A good bottle of wine, a couple of cans of tuna in the pantry, and a few odds and ends in your refrigerator are all you need for a gourmet meal to kick off your evening of indulgence.


Something light
If you’re watching your weight, skip the carbonated alcohol and alcopops and go straight for the good stuff. A lively Beaujolais would be perfect, or some nice mild Rioja Crianza. Despite these being both red wines, they’re light, young, and slightly acidic, pair…

Akrotiri: A unique gastronomical experience!

Image
According to James Beard, Food is our common ground, a universal experience. With this being factored, we learn to socialize and learn more about different cultures because of food. With the same reason that us Filipinos have learned to embrace both local and foreign cuisines.

Just last week, I was honored to be invited to the gathering of the top local and lifestyle bloggers for a night of extremely appetizing modern dishes, in one of the newest restaurant here in the south.


Akrotiri is located at the G/F of Commerce Center Filinvest City in Alabang. Akrotiri introduced the unique Eurasian culinary concept. It reflects the Mediterranean classics with a combination of Asian taste which creates a new flavor and mouthwatering dishes. The menu was co-conceptualized by  Luca Maffei, an Italian chef with intricate taste to flavors and fusion.

Rice: The staple that Filipinos can’t live without

Image
Rice is considered as the global staple food. In most of Asian countries , rice is the staple food in every table. Filipinos can eat more than one cup of rice with almost everything. It's the food source that completes the meals on the table.

This is why a Filipino meal is not complete without rice. Rice has also been an important part of the Philippine culture, that one basis of growing up and maturity is whether or not you can cook/steam rice properly.

Rice is versatile and it’s what makes the dish unique. Besides the fact that a meal is more scrumptious with rice, it is also nutritive. It helps control blood pressure, improves metabolism, and promotes cardiovascular health. Rice is also rich in carbohydrates that provide energy, and has small amounts of protein but has no fat.

The versatility of  rice is just one of the many reasons why rice continues to be the most dominant cereal crop.



Rice can be served and enjoyed in many different ways:

Fiery Style: Experience the Modern Mexican taste in Newport City

Image
I am not a fan of Mexican food, but that could have been due to those restaurants that I have dined that promises  "authentic and delicious dining experience" but ended up with a regretful dining experience

A close friend recommended to try Fiery Style in Resorts World and I was not disappointed, although you really need to wait for the food to be served, I can say the wait was worth, I've read some bad reviews but I am glad that I still tried coz I definitely had a different and pleasant experience.


Place
4/5

A combination of Modern design and Mexican ambiance with perfect lighting not too bright in the eyes and not too dim for you to appreciate the color of the food and the Mexican styled designs, perfect for food selfies.

Although the place was kind of hiding from the sight of possible customers, they have courteous usherettes that will guide you to where the restaurant is and is more than willing to take your orders.

It was a warm sunny morning that day. I and Chelsea were really excited to meet the newest Jollibee Spaghetti family celebrity endorsers. I can say that I'm one of the loyal fans of Jollibee since I was nine years old.
