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!

Fish Steak Recipe ( Milkfish )

Bangus or Milkfish is very popular because of the distinct taste of its meat and belly fat which melts in your mouth especially on how it compliments the ingredients on whatever dish that you made from it, may it be fried, with sauce or placed on a soup, you can never go wrong with it.

I love making different dishes using Bangus since this is my husband and daughter's favorite. With this same reason why I am meticulous whenever I buy Bangus, I make sure that it is fresh and I always buy it from my trusted vendors.

Not all the time our favorite fish is available, but there are no worries for me since I am sure that Sarangani Bay Prime Bangus is available at our favorite supermarkets and I can make sure that their products are packed fresh and also export-quality.




I am one of the satisfied consumers of their products and my family loves their Marinated Bangus especially my daughter who can eat almost one serving of it.

Here are some key ingredients from King Sue and the recipes that you can prepare for yourself and your loved ones. It’s what is called the perfect pambaon.

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

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

Cooking up steps to self-improvement

Cooking can be simple and easy for some and others might find it a bit difficult to handle for different reasons. Some started to value and know the importance of cooking or making a mess in the kitchen at an early age but still enjoys the atmosphere and willing to learn more about it.

Young professionals today are not only eating out more but also leaning heavily on the convenience of takeout. But that leads to a whole different set of problems. Not only is it more expensive to eat out, but when you live on meals made for you by other people, you tend to gravitate towards the unhealthy- fast food, deep-fried, overly sweet or salty, or loaded with saturated fat.

That can lead to weight gain and all the health problems that come with an unhealthy diet.

Skills to a healthier, happier life

However, a lot of men and women have decided that enough is enough and take matters into their own hands, learning how to do the basics that have been forgotten while growing up.

For a lot of them, wor…
