As a child my family's menu consisted of two choices: take it or leave it. ~Buddy Hackett

Whole Grain Corn Bread

I'd like to share this whole grain corn bread. I got this recipe from Natural Health Magazine. Whole grain corn flour and buttermilk make this rib-sticking corn bread and healthier choice than the starchy, fatty variety often served at holiday tables. Whole grain corn bread recipe is easy to prepare too.

Whole Grain Corn Bread


1 1/2 cups whole-grain corn flour
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt (optional)
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3 tablespoons honey
1 1/2 cups low-fat buttermilk
1/4 cup canola oil
2 eggs, beaten

Preheat oven to 400 F. Coat an 8-inch square pan with non-stick cooking spray.

In a medium mixing bowl, combine flours, baking powder, seasonings, and honey with a wire whisk. In a small bowl, combine remaining wet ingredients. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. 
Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Cut into squares to serve.

Ham and Double Cheese Sandwich and Shrimp Bisque

I’ve been very busy for the last three months, that’s why I was not able to update this food blog. Our transfer to a new home is one of the reasons why I’m so busy. Luckily, I had a chance to rent a vehicle for the transfer. It was like those offered by Philippines Car Rentals companies but much cheaper. Over all, it was a successful activity.

Here’s a new portion of this blog, the Recipes for the Week post. For this week, let me share to you two yummy snacks, the Ham and Double Cheese Sandwich and Shrimp Bisque.

Ham and Double Cheese Sandwich

This snack can be prepared within ten minutes. The serving is good for one person. What you’ll need are two bread slices, two slices Cheddar cheese, and one slice ham. How to do it? First, cut bread slices, cheese slices, and ham slice into star shapes using a star-shaped cookie cutter. Second, assemble the sandwich by layering a bread slice with cheese, ham, cheese, and then top with the other bread slice. In order to make more sandwiches, just multiply the recipe.

Shrimp Bisque

The second preparation for the recipes for the week is Shrimp Bisque. This snack is good for two to three people. The preparation time is fifteen minutes and the cooking time is ten minutes. You’ll need one third cup sliced celery, two tablespoons butter, one fourth cup crème cheese, one cup milk, three fourth cup tomato sauce, one cup frozen cooked tiny shrimps (thawed and drained) and pepper to taste. How to do it? First, sauté celery in butter on medium heat until tender. Second, reduce heat to low. Stir in cream cheese and milk; cook and stir until cheese is melted. Lastly, poor tomato sauce and add shrimp; season with pepper. Cook until mixture is heated through, stirring occasionally. Blend. Garnish with parsley and serve warm. That’s our recipes for the week. Thank you for reading.

Easy Cure For Anemia

We need easy cure for anemia. It must not only be easy, it should be less expensive and healthy. Anemia has been considered as one of the most dangerous nutrient or vitamin-deficiency in our body. Our body's red blood cells must be healthy in order to avoid diseases. Women try to drink vitamins and food supplements in order to prevent anemia. However, there are other options for anemia prevention. Let us try preparing camote tops. In other countries camote tops may be replaced by any leaves that can be eaten as green leafy vegetables. You can find green leafy vegetables in your garden, in supermarkets, and even in your backyard if you grow most of them.

All you need is to prepare some green leafy vegetables and water. Just clean the green leafy vegetables for cooking. Then, you need to boil the water. When the water is already boiled, place the cleaned green leafy vegetables in the kettle and cook in a few minutes. When cooked, place the green leafy vegetables in a plate and put a little salt to taste. Let cool the soup. You may drink the soup with a little salt then. That way, anemia can be prevented because green leafy vegetables like camote tops contain iron for a healthy blood.

Cooking With Love In Mind

Cooking with love in mind is an old-aged way of winning people and touching lives. We love to eat and share food with loved ones. We tend to enjoy each day of our lives by means of eating the right food and delicious meals. Our families are taken cared of because we cook only the most nutritious and palatable food for them. But how do we really share our cooked meals at home?

We should think of many ways to make our meals so exciting. For example, we should cook the favorite dishes of the person who is celebrating birthday. Or if we want to have a picnic in our favorite resort such as Watercamp Resort in Cavite, we should cook something suitable for a swimming party.

People agree that cooking from the heart is the most effective way to perfect a recipe. The perfect taste of a meal is only arrived by thinking that what cook is for our loved ones. Cooking with love in mind is also a unique way to enjoy cooking and preparing all the necessary ingredients. There are recipes that are not easy to prepare and it takes a loving heart to fulfill the task properly. I surely believe that cooking with love in mind is the ultimate secret of the best chef in town.

Shrimp a la Karl

Shrimps cooked with soda and vegetable oil are my favorite for lunch. I used to cook such food if I feel like I am sad or sentimental. I like the color of shrimps when already cooked. I like shrimps in medium sizes- not to big and not too small. As a seafood diet, cooking shrimp is also easy to do.

The things needed in cooking Shrimp a la Karl include cleaned half kilo shrimps, vegetable oil, 1 cup soda like Sprite, the usual spices like red bell pepper, garlic, onions, and seasoning to taste. Before frying the shrimps, just place it in a wok or pan, let simmer for a few minutes and then set aside. After that, fry the shrimps (saute) by adding the spices. When cooked, pour the soda and allow to simmer. Serve with steamed rice.
