Super Special Super Moist Avocado Mini Muffins

I am so excited to write about my new experiment. Definitely, my own recipe and did not copy from anywhere else. I called it “Super Special Super Moist Avocado Mini Muffins”. Super special because I use plant-based butter(anyways I always use plant-based butter), soy milk and coconut juice. Super moist because it was really very moist. I think that’s because of avocado itself. Not sure about that. So how did I come up with the idea? My daughter used to […]

Time to make things right

For the past months, I was really emotionally unstable and my brain was a mess and my previous post have the details. I really felt the stress all over my body and I also got sick. Thanks God I was able to get out of that situation. One day, we were in the library and saw one of the books with warning tag, “The Less Stress Lifestyle”. Maybe it’s time to read this and it might help me. But one […]

When things seem to be going wrong

Place to live is ticked. It’s time to focus on finding a job. Oh man, it’s so difficult. There are not much C++ opportunities in Australia. If there is, it’s either not match with my skills or need to obtain a security clearance which is only given to citizens or for some with special cases. Because of this, I have too much time to think, to reflect on so many things and look into the future. Now it’s not good. […]

Embutido

My challenge last week was to take a break from stir fry dishes ‘coz my husband started to request some viands. To take the challenge to the next level, I decided to finally make an Embutido, a Filipino style meat loaf. The first time I made an embutido was when I was in Grade 6 as part of Home Economics project. This dish takes a lot of effort to make. I just like to cook those which I can finish […]

Moving to a new home

After moving to the new apartment, I became busy finding the right furniture and appliances. Right means, within a budget but trusted brands and can fit on the allotted space. This is again something new to us. We had never shop for furniture and appliances before because we rented fully furnished HDB units in Singapore. Thanks to AU-NZ trips last year and the airbnb where we stayed. They gave me the idea of what to put in the small apartment […]

Pancake with Strawberry and Salted Caramel

Pancake is one of my daughter’s favorite food. I guess most kids love pancakes. Since she turned 2, we are almost eating pancake weekly or fortnightly. Inside or outside home or even outside the country, she’s requesting for pancake. So last week, I made a pancake but I don’t want to be just plain buttermilk pancake. Sometimes I try different flavors such as honey, cheese, fruits, chocolate. This time I want to try something new. I went to Woolworths to […]

When finding a place to rent feels like finding a job

Migrating to another country is really a tough one. In Australia, at least in Melbourne, finding a place to rent is more difficult than Singapore and Philippines. Here, when I was looking for a place to rent, I felt like I was looking for a job and when I got it, my heart was overjoyed. We booked an airbnb apartment unit in Docklands for 3 weeks. Our requirements for the house/apartment were: near to tram/train station, not too far from […]

Banana Bread with Cheese

Our typical breakfast is having a bread and a cup of coffee or chocolate drink for adults and a soy milk for the toddler. It has always been my task to think of what bread to serve. My husband and I are not fans of eating the same food at least in 2 weeks unless we don’t have any other choices. One week ago, I bought the Paradise’s banana bread mix in Woolworths. It is exclusively packed for woolies anyways. […]

Tortang Talong with Minced Pork and Spices

Few weeks ago, I started to introduce the eggplant to my daughter. Having a child who shows food allergic reactions, I introduce food one at a time. I was thankful that the first Tortang Talong, a Filipino dish which consists of eggplant and egg”, she ate did not show any reactions on her skin. Whew! So this week, I cooked it again. What could be done to make it something new? I checked the fridge and found excess minced pork […]

It’s a Wrap on Mother’s Day

It’s Mother’s Day and I feel like serving something new at the same time consuming our leftover foods from yesterday. The leftover rice becomes fried rice with egg and spinach. To put the “adobong chicken na may gata” in a wrap, I cut them into strips using fork and fried 3 slightly scrambled eggs. All are still well until I warm the wrap in the oven. I played with my daughter and forget to remove them immediately. By the time […]
