Banana-Coconut Flour Pancakes

DSC_7340

My husband and I have been frequenting the Farmers’ Market at SRP, and last Saturday, we bought half a kilo of bananas. Because we had a rather heavy dinner last night (thank you family!), I decided to make a healthier breakfast to try to make up for the scrumptious dinner. These banana pancakes are an update to these Flourless, 3-Ingredient Pancakes as today’s pancakes involved more than three ingredients and incorporated a new twist.

FOOD | Spanish Sardines Spaghetti

How was your long weekend? Mine was a regular long weekend, dotted with DIY and craft projects, family meals, and work. Today’s gonna be hang-over day for some people, so I’m sharing an easy to make, delicious and not very expensive pasta dish that you bring for lunch or whip up tonight after tackling your work backlog. I love this dish because it involves a good bottle of Spanish sardines, which I consider a luxury food.  Continue reading “FOOD | Spanish Sardines Spaghetti”

Cauliflower Rice

Filipino that I am, I am a big rice eater. Even when I’m eating noodles, there should be rice on the side. At worst, even when I’m eating spaghetti, I sneak in a few spoons of rice. Rice is not bad, not bad at all, but I’ve been trying to experiment with cooking rice and incorporating vegetables and proteins into it so that I can consume less of the rice (carbohydrates!) and more of the nutrients from the vegetables and meat.  Continue reading “Cauliflower Rice”

How to Make Crepes at Home

Happy Monday! To start off our week, let me share with you something I thought I could never make at home — crepes! My nephew LOVES crepes, especially mango crepes with vanilla ice cream. When we go out, he’d always ask for crepes. It never occurred to me that crepes are so easy to make until I had leftover batter from this pancake recipe and leftover milk from the said recipe.

Instant Chicken Noodles

DSC_6975The sun has steadily come out the past days, but the nights remain cold, with me often getting up in the middle of sleep to urinate. Oftentimes, I couldn’t go back to sleep immediately and would be tempted to get a bit of work done or do some reading or research (on food). Also, oftentimes, I would be tempted to eat something warm and savory, like a bowl of noodle soup. I don’t stock on instant noodles because I try to stay away from processed food as much as I can. So, when I have leftover chicken (roasted chicken tastes really good, as well), I save some for instant just-add-water noodle soup. This noodle soup healthier because it has lesser salt and sodium compared to instant noodles, but is not any less tasty. This noodle can also be prepared ahead in the evening for tomorrow’s lunch (just add water!) Continue reading “Instant Chicken Noodles”
