 I’m so pumped up to make my Bell Pepper Egg Rings and make use of the kitchen tools I got during the Masflex Kitchen Camp held in the Maya Kitchen in Makati.  Masflex has invited select bloggers to a new exciting and challenging event and I’m so happy to be included. πŸ™‚

The Masflex Kitchen Camp was hosted by Masflex Ambassador, the Adobo Queen Ms. Nancy Reyes-Lumen.

The Masflex Kitchen Camp (Blogger’s Edition) was held in line with the celebration of it’s 25th year of excellence and innovation of high quality and affordable cookware and kitchenware of Masflex.

The kitchen camp gave me the feel of MasterChef (U.S. TV series) the part where Ms. Nancy announce what to cook next and we will all rush in front, where a long table of ingredients is available, we hurriedly pick our ingredients.  It was super fun. I was nervous the whole time, I wonder if I will get kicked off if my cooking doesn’t pass to her standards. πŸ˜›

I went to the kitchen camp with my friend, Lani.  When we were our way home she told me she got nervous too and felt strange in front of the cooking tools and cooking ingredients.   We have been cooking our entire marriage life and we felt like first timers during the kitchen camp.   The kitchen camp was really an awesome experience!

We made the famous bibimbap with blue rice.  I never liked bibimbap but, what I made during the kitchen camp was different, I loved it.  I brought it home and shared it with my husband he said he likes it too.  It’s a true testament that Ms. Nancy’s bibimbap recipe is really good.  And of course, I’ll share it with you soon. πŸ™‚

We were also taught how to make a rainbow crepe cake.  I’m one hell of a cook, I made pancake “cakes” instead of crepe cake!  πŸ˜€  

Hahaha.crepe cake

I went to Chef Jaja, she’s the lady at my right, she gave me tips and trick to make it really thin, like a real crepe. πŸ™‚ Chef Jaja is a real angel, I feel like if I sit down with her for a coffee she will tell me all her cooking and baking secrets. πŸ™‚

I love every thing about the kitchen camp.  I love all the tricks and smart cooking tips of Ms. Nancy!  I learned soooo much.  What I realized was, learning it hands-on was different from learning it in Youtube.  

Thank you so much Ms. Nancy, Chef Jaja and of course Masflex for hosting the event. πŸ™‚

3 Easy to Prepare Snacks for Guests Who Just Dropped By

3 Easy to Prepare Snacks for Guests Who Just Dropped By

Posted by on Dec 26, 2016 | 0 comments

Are you still looking for ideas to serve to your guests this holiday season, especially those who just dropped by to say hello in the spirit of the holiday season? Invite them in and serve any of these three easy to prepare snacks. πŸ™‚

1. Gouda cheese.  My personal favorite is gouda cheese, perfect for my grilled cheese sandwich.  I also used ARLA’s salted butter to brush both sides of the bread before grilling.  Gouda, or “How-da” as the locals say, is a Dutch cheese named after the city of Gouda in the Netherlands.  It is a semi-hard cheese that has a nutty and creamy flavor.  πŸ™‚

2. Unsalted butter. I also like ARLA’s unsalted butter for my oatmeal cookies. My home-baked cookies have been a family staples. I have been loyal to another butter brand for a long time, until I discovered ARLA’s unsalted butter. My husband asked me what changes I made from my recipe because it tastes extra special this time.  Dang! I used ARLA’s unsalted butter and from this time forward and this will be our official butter. πŸ™‚

3. Fresh Cheese Herbs and Spices.  I’m not a fan of bread spreads but when I tried ARLA’s Fresh Cheese Herbs and Spices, it changed my mind.  πŸ™‚   A few slices of  toasted bruschetta or a simple crackers with ARLA’s Fresh Cheese Herbs and Spices makes a good welcome guest food.  πŸ™‚

fxe12666

ARLA is an international dairy company from Denmark and its gaining popularity to local foodies like me. πŸ™‚ 

This holiday season #LetInTheGoodness to ARLA’s all-natural dairy that offers no preservatives, no stabilizers or artificial colorants products.  

Arla products are available at leading supermarkets nationwide.  Visit their Facebook page for more recipe ideas this holiday season.  https://www.facebook.com/ArlaPH/
