Potatoes USA Cooking Workshop + My Shrimp and Bacon Balls Recipe using U.S. Dehydrated Potato Flakes

Potatoes play a big part in the diet of Pinoys. We use them in a lot of our ulam (viands), we enjoy them for snacks like chips and fries, and they are often our preferred side dish like mashed potato.

They are so versatile, and may I add, very nutritious, too!They are packed with vitamins and minerals like Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, potassium, complex carbohydrates, fiber and calcium among others. My daughter who is now in grade school benefits from all the nutritious goodness in potatoes.They are a constant in my pantry because they are very affordable. A win-win!

So, I said yes right away when I was invited to the Potatoes USA Cooking Workshop. It was held last October 25 at the Magsaysay Institute of Culinary Arts in Mandaluyong City.

The event was a collaboration between Potatoes USA and Momma ‘n Manila blog with guest celebrity mom-chef Rosebud Benitez-Velasco. She shared three potato recipesthat are so easy to prepare! These are U.S. Potato Crusted Salmon with Truffle Potato Sauce and Fruit Salsa, U.S. Potato Pudding and U.S. Mashed Potato Truffle.

I am amazed with U.S. dehy. It just makes cooking so much easier! Instead of spending time peeling, boiling, and mashing, U.S. dehy makes kitchen work less complicated. It is also easy to store and has a long shelf life.

I especially enjoyed the hands-on cooking activity where we tried to recreate one of the dishes earlier demonstrated by Chef Rosebud. We prepared the salmon dish and it was so much fun! See the final product below:

Let me talk a bit more about U.S. dehy because that’s what I’m going to use in my recipe. U.S. dehy is a true blue U.S. product made of premium potatoes. The only difference is in its more lightweight and compact form and perhaps in its great versatility. You can use it in so many ways! Add them in soups, stews, sauces and even use them in baking. It can also be used to make siomai, pizza dough, hotdog and native kakanin. The possibilities are endless!

U.S. potatoes are now available in the Philippines in three forms:  fresh potatoes, frozen potatoes, and dehydrated potatoes.  You may find them in your local groceries. If you’re looking for dehy, you may find them in baking supply stores. You can also contact the local Potatoes USA office to request for a supplier near you.

Here is one of my latest recipes where I used U.S. Dehydrated Potato Flakes. I can’t get over how easy it is to use and how much time I saved.

My family absolutely love it! I hope you do, too.

Staycation at Bosay Hotel and Resort in Antipolo

After a gruesome week at work, I was able to spend my off with my family and we decided to have a staycation, with some recommendations from my colleagues and friends, we chose to stay in Bosay Resort in Antipolo.

Although I have read some bad review, we decided to still pursue to see what they have to offer since the place is pretty accessible by commute or by car.

We stayed in their hotel for 2 days and 1 night and here's what I can say with the experience that we had with Bosay Hotel & Resort.

First of all, I am proud to say that I am really impressed with their customer service. It was superb, we were assisted from the time we arrived, during our check-in process and their staff is really courteous.

The staff who assisted us on our way to the hotel even spent the time to explain details about the resort and its facilities, and I can say that their employees are really knowledgeable about what their resort has to offer.

Upon arrival at the Hotel lobby, it has a relaxing am…

Say Yass! to Two Greenwich Lasagna Supreme Regular Pans for the price of one

Pasta comes in different shapes and sizes but whatever it is no one can keep us away from loving it whether it be a red or white sauce, Italian, Filipino Style, Pesto or in any way you like it pasta will be a Filipino favorite.

Speaking of pasta, aside from our regular favorites, this pasta has been a favorite of a lot of Filipino, and this is Lasagna, a delightful pasta dish oozing with multiple layers of meat and sauce on every layer of pasta and cheese, giving every bite a wonderful experience.

But what makes lasagna so special? The Greenwich Lasagna Supreme, for instance, an all-time favorite of actress and Greenwich kabarkada Yassi Pressman, has four delicious elements that make it so hard to resist.

It's beefy. One of the secrets to a great lasagna is in the meat. Greenwich uses high-quality ground beef that is perfectly simmered, browned and delicately flavored with spices to release its juicy and beefy flavors. If cooked correctly like the way Greenwich does it, the beef fl…
