    Homemade Pimiento Cheese

    I have no excuse for not writing. NO EXCUSE AT ALL!  I was half lazy and half busy to take decent food shots, curate the photos to my desired mix, and write an equally passable entry. My goals of posting consistently has failed, and I feel remorseful. I should do better (here I go again). AND I WILL. The other day, I played around with cheese that was lying around in our refrigerator for a time. I rushed to a nearby grocery to buy Pimiento and made my self a fresh serving of Pimiento Cheese spread. It was late in the afternoon and I made myself a cup of coffee…

    The Silog I love

    I have a new source of amusement! a washing machine haha. We just bought one and I have been thrilled to pieces just trying to work my way through laundry. I have been hand washing our clothes since we got back from our honeymoon (six months ago)! My hands need a rest, they have been dry as ever! wrinkles and all. 🙁 However, towards the middle of me sorting out the buttons, I realized how much of a noob I was! haha oh well. ANYWAY. Tomorrow is another holiday! Eid al Fitr, which is a special religious holiday celebrated by the Muslims; but Andre decided not to go to work today…

    Classic French Toast

    Yay for the holiday! This is one of those rare occasions that I get to sleep longer and wake up to prepare quality breakfast. Thankfully, French Toasts are really fuss free alternatives to pancakes, since I was craving for one. I just wish I had fresh fruits on hand! The site where I got this recipe from looked enticing with all the berries on the side of her plate. Delish! But oh well, this will do for now!  Lica

    A Mug Cake + Tales from the Weekend

    Hellooooo, sweater weather! Two causes for a celebration! I made my dad’s blog site work! I have been toiling all morning to fix his new domain and it took me quite awhile to figure things out (more like four hours). Since I have more time in my hands the past few days, I have been experimenting and teaching myself how to do new things. One of my latest contributions to my accomplishment collection is the ability to put up a site via wordpress.org (aka ramosontheroad.com). Recently, I was able to replace a bulb in our lighting fixture that went kaput! (yay haha small sources of joy). And, last but not…

    Clay Pot Chicken

    Thursday = bible study and Chinese food!  I feel like doing a Sheldon (from Big Bang Theory) and declaring tonight as Chinese Food night! Minus the junk that comes with take out grub, since they eat their nosh from boxes. Andre usually holds his d-group (bible study group) at our house during Thursdays and it is such a challenge to whip up something different each time. I am just so grateful that it is so easy to feed boys haha. As long as its edible, then it is good to go! (Right?)  I love love love having guests over! Sometimes it just gets too quiet at home, even for me…

    Mac and Cheese + Trip to the Farm

    One of my go-to comfort foods is Macaroni and Cheese for the very reason that it is so easy to do. I had two objectives for this recipe : 1) I got home at 5 pm and I only had 30 minutes of window time to catch the natural light for my shots (thank God for summer! the sun sets at 6 pm) and 2) I needed a quick meal to prepare for André’s lunchbox tomorrow before we leave for dinner. With all that has been said and done I had to narrow my choices to something quick and good! Thankfully, my husband loved Mac and Cheese. ( I mean…

    Ham and Egg Sandwich

    After I realized my husband has left for work, I sent him a message telling him I wish we had more time in the morning. I long for Saturdays when we could just stay in bed longer and have meaningful conversations over breakfast once we finally decide to get up. That is pure bliss, but it just happens once a week (since we prepare early for church on Sundays). Rrrrr. ADULTING. Sometimes I wish we married young so we can just dismiss the responsibilities of being an adult but still be together. WHAT AM I SAYING?! HAHA. HUHU (even my emotions are confused) I am just that sad. This is…
