Christmas Wishlist: Sharp New J-Tech Inverter Refrigerator

If you’ve been following me in Instagram (@mommykach P.S. follow me you’re still not :D), you’ll notice that I’m been embracing the #homemaker state of mind lately.

I’ve recently discovered the joys of cooking and baking, I even found a way to make a small business out of it. I’ve been selling homemade banana cakes and leche flan to my office mates and neighbors. And you can say that business has been kinda good lately because of the Christmas season, I can hardly keep up with the orders! It’s tiring since I do have a full time job plus still breastfeeding Raven but it’s a good kind of tired. I really enjoy baking, sabi ko nga ‘I think I found my passion na.’ Plus having a raket for added income doesn’t hurt either. Continue reading

MOMMY HOW TO: Easy Turbo Broiler Banana Cake

 

girlygoingawayparty

Yey! I made banana cakes. From scratch!

But before that, please let me lay out a bit of a back story first:

When we were in high school, we have home economic classes where for one quarter, us girls learned how to cook basic dishes and  bake a simple cake. We were divided in groups and each one had a designated task. There was one who’s in charge of the ingredients, the actual baking and the cake’s decoration. I knew I was helpless and honestly, not interested, in the kitchen so I wasn’t part of any of that. Continue reading

Ajinomoto: Kathryn and Liza’s Kitchen Best Friend

I never really knew how to cook growing up.

My Papa and Mama are both excellent cooks that we kids were contented to just sit by the table and wait for our delicious ulam to be served to us every meal time. So, when I got married and had kids, I really had a hard time in the kitchen.

I often joked that it’s a good thing my husband knows how to cook or else we’ll go hungry. Lol.

But lately, I’ve been stepping out of my comfort zone and been braving the kitchen. I started with our daily meryenda. From leche flan to biko to yema cakes. I also started experimenting with our ulam. Just a couple of nights ago, I served meatballs and misua soup for dinner. That I made from scratch. I’ve never been so proud of myself haha!

I maybe a little late in getting comfortable in the kitchen, but hey, I’m slowly getting there.

That is why I’m amazed at how kids and young adults nowadays are so much into cooking. I guess technology play a role in all this. It’s now easy for new cooks to search online for cooking videos or check out ‘food hacks’ to be able to come up with any dish they want that they can, in turn, show off on social media.
