Uni-Pak Sardines Pasta + Giveaway

My girls love pasta to bits! That is why I do not just settle for one recipe and continue to explore whenever there’s a chance. Fortunately, I got to try the first dibs of Uni-Pak’s new variants just in time when we were so hungry and tired from a long travel.

Here’s what I cooked earlier and named it, UNI-PAK SARDINES PASTA.


Ingredients:

3-4 cloves of garlic
1 whole small red onion
400g Spaghetti Noodles
2 tins of Mackerel in Natural Oil
1 club can of Sardines in Soya Oil
1 club can of Sardines in Spanish Style for toppings
Dried basil leaves
Dried rosemary leaves
Salt & Pepper to taste

Serves 6-8

Of course, I am very much willing to share with you my recipe. Please watch the video below:

Quick n’ Easy Banana Muffin with Maya

When I get a chance (that happens almost everyday anyway), I prepare something for my girls and make sure that before the clock strikes at 4pm, everything is ready! Today, I made muffins without getting messy in the kitchen. Less ingredients, happier mommy!

The other day, my youngest, Ishi requested for pancakes. Since we have it available in the cupboard, I gave in. As I was taking out the half pack (250gms) from the box, I read that you can also make muffins out of it, so I kept the half pack aside reserved for muffins.

Despite being mentioned in the mechanics that:

This contest is open to all readers with a METRO MANILA address where they can deliver the prize.

I still joined and hoped that I can use a friend’s Manila address perhaps. And I did win! I’m just so glad that DOLE and The Peach Kitchen were so considerate, that they allowed me to have these goodies sent to Nicquee instead, who was also one of the lucky 4 winners. Thanks Nicquee for sending them over to me!

Oyster Mushroom Sisig

Cooking healthy meals puts me to challenge daily. It’s not that I have a zero knowledge in cooking or ingredients are nowhere to be found nearby where we live (though that also happens at times!) but it’s having a picky eater in the household. There were times that I had to be harsh not letting my 4 y/o get in the way. My house rule is “Eat what is served on the table or do not eat at all“. I’ve always believed that “Pag nagutom yan, hihingi yan” but that only works after a struggle or after I let my convincing power handle the situation. Some cases were manageable but of course who would want a dramatic meal time spent with any of your family members?

I gotta do something. Do some magic!
