Kids Say The Darndest Things: Counting Undies

Hi folks! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas despite some sad news we have in our country.

Our family had a wonderful Christmas as we spent it with hubby's family and relatives in Baguio City. Nothing beats being in a house jampacked with love ones, enjoying countless meals, freshly brewed coffee and good conversations for days :) Everyone is on vacation mode.

More of our Baguio trip in separate post.

For today, I want to share another hilarious remark from our little girl. It was just so funny how it came out so unexpected. Lately, we call her issues 'sossy problems.' I tell you, as she nears her 6th birthday, it's just really more of kikay problems it starts to get into me (how my mom handled my sister and I, I wouldn't know)

On our way to Baguio, as we were traversing Kennon road:

Sophie:    Daddy, ilang beses ba tayo sa Baguio?
Hubby:    What baby? (he concentrate on Sophie's spur-of-the moment question because he was tackling Kennon rd.)
Sophie:    How many days ba tayo sa Baguio?
Hubby:    Ah, What do you mean?
Sophie:   (now impatient) hindi mo pa alam ilang days tayo, eh 9 lang ang panty ko! (you don't know how many days we're staying in Baguio? I only have 9 panties for this trip!)
Hubby:    (totally clueless...)

This is an example of her 'sossy problem': panties! I explained to husband that when I was helping Sophie pack her stuff for the Baguio trip, I told her to count her panties so she'll know if she has enough for the trip. Before I could finish explaining, hubby was already laughing so hard! I laughed so hard I almost cried.
I also told husband: ' wag ka, pinili pa namin ang panty na walang sira.' (mind you, we chose the panties that are still okay). That made hubby crack up even more! LOL! :)

Baking Partners Challenge #5: Plum Cake

This post is late (again) but with a purpose so I hope my excuse is acceptable :) I delayed doing Baking Partners challenge to today to coincide with hubby's birthday. No better way to appreciate a homemade cake than in a special occasion such as birthday.

Yep, this month's baking challenge is CAKE. Honestly, I haven't done cakes this kind and I'm glad I did. I must say that every time I do one recipe from Baking Partners, I learn not only recipes but also techniques along the way. For this recipe I learned how to make caramel syrup the right way (never stir with spoon) and I got to experiment with lime since I ran out of lemon.

The recipe I chose is Plum Cake since I'm a personal fan of this cake and my hubby enjoyed as well (with that touch of rum and all :) ) 

Let's get started with ingredients.

1 cup Raisins                      
1 cup Dates, chopped
1/4 c. Candied Orange/Lemon Peel   ( I used lime instead)     
1/4 c Brandy or Rum                                       
1 cup Unsalted Cashew Pieces                        
Few drops of Lemon Juice          (used lime juice as substitute)                
1/2 c Boiling Water                                         
2 sticks (8 oz) Unsalted Butter at room temperature 
2 1/2 cups Powdered Sugar                                      
3 large or 4 medium Eggs (separated)
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract     
2 cups All-Purpose Flour                                     
1 tsp Baking Powder
6 tbsp Sugar
3 tbsp Water                                     
1/2 tsp Cinnamon Powder                             
1/4 tsp. Ginger Powder                                  
 /4 tsp. Clove Powder                                              
1/4 tsp. Nutmeg Powder                                         
Brandy _optional for soaking

1. In a medium pan, add Brandy/Rum, Dates, Raisins and Orange Peel. Cook for 1 minute on medium heat.
2. Add Cashews and continue to cook for 1 minutes until heated through. Keep aside.

3. In a small pot, add 6 Tbsp Sugar and 3 Tbsp water and few drops of lemon juice. Swirl pan to mix – do not use spoon.
4. Heat until sugar changes color and becomes caramelized. (approx 7-8 minutes).
5. Add 1/2 cup boiling water and swirl pan again to mix well. Keep aside.
6. In a large mixing bowl, combine softened butter and powdered sugar and beat with hand blender.
7. Add one egg yolk at a time to the mix and blend well.
8. Add Vanilla Extract and blend.

9. Combine all dry spices, baking powder and flour and sift it into the bowl, adding little at a time and blending.
10. Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
11. Lightly coat baking pans with spray cooking oil or regular oil.
12. Add caramelized sugar syrup a little at a time into mixing bowl and blend.
13. Add fruit/nut mixture into mixing bowl and mix with a spoon.
14. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until they are fluffy and soft peaks form.

15. Fold beaten egg whites into the cake batter.

I say the egg whites did a lot of transformation on the texture of the batter.

16. Pour batter into greased baking pans and bake for approx 1 hour at 325 degrees F. For smaller pans, baking time may vary.
17. Remove cake from oven and allow it to cool for few minutes

Our Plum cake, dressed simply. I had no time to garnish or decorate since I still did 3 more dishes for my husband's birthday.

First slice goes to the celebrant of course, he loved it! t's a celebration of flavors in one cake, very festive indeed :)

Recipe Share: Beef Empanadas

Here's another recipe share from my kitchen to yours. Empanada (or stuffed bread or pastel in other countries) is such a Pinoy favorite and my perosnal fave too so I decided to make one for lunch on a weekend. 

The recipe I got from Flavors magazine. I mentioned in my previous posts that I love buying food magazines in the grocery stores especially if it features new recipes and tips. This recipe is  by chef Jill Sandique, captured using my phone cam.

the prepared dough made into equal sized balls. These dough balls are as small as a munchkin donut and can be as flatten to the size of a saucer. 

The filling; I slightly altered the recipe. Took out the olives and added peas so that kids will eat them. I love raisins and peas

folded dough before frying

finish product. I think I need to practice more on sealing these stuffed bread 

 an inside look.

Happy Monday everyone! :)

My First

Yes mam, yes sir bili bili na po! Chants the saleslady in 168 mall. It's the month of shop and spend 'til you drop and everyone is into such mood.

I was lucky enough to do my Christmas shopping early so December is not as hectic so when I got an offer to join a Sunday bazaar as a vendor I immediately grabbed the offer. At the back of my mind I know where to get goods to sell but not sure if I can get the stuff all in in time for the event.

The bazaar was scheduled on Sunday in our nearby church so I spent the remainder of the week gathering up stuff to sell. And then my schedule got hectic. The masochist me even decided to sell cupcakes and pudding bars so on top of doing inventory and price tagging on Saturday night, I made cupcakes and finished almost midnight.
Sunday morning, bazaar day – setup time was 530am so we can catch the early church goers. Haggard ‘di ba pero sayang ang benta. I also wanted to sell my pastries while they were warm from the oven. In fairness, my pumpkin and choco chip cupcakes got sold out in just an hour. I was a happy baker! :) I even got an additional order for 11/2 dozen of cupcakes so I asked hubby to watch over the paninda while I drove home and baked. Haha! My pudding got easily sold too but I couldn’t count how many puddings hubby and Sophie ate, they were my handy helpers so it's okay.
my neighborhood bazaaristas setting up their spots

bili bili na kayo! stuff from China, Korea and Divisoria :)

I don’t have much photos of the bazaar. I don’t even have time to play on the tablet or my phone which I brought in case I got bored. The people were constantly coming and going.

Being a bazaarista was such a fun experience; busy but rewarding. I gave me a renewed spirit to take on another enterprising adventure and reminded how much I enjoy selling. On top of it I met fellow bazaar vendors who share the same interest and found new contacts. 

Given a chance, I would like to do this again next year. People were telling me to concentrate on my cupcakes and pastries as they were marketable. Not a bad idea.

Season of Happiness

It's been Christmas in Garcia household since November. We put up the decors soon after Hallooween. That excited, yeah. We love decorating the house and I love seeing the kids' face when we light our Christmas lights for the first time.
For the indoor decor, we recycled last year's theme as they still look fab and current. I just added new silver decors like the mirror balls and glitter butterflies.

For the outdoor, it was inspired by Trinoma's white Christmas (gaya gaya much) so I bought decors in white and gold and additional white lights.

 I'm still thinking on buying a white Christmas tree for the garden, the only thing that's keeping me from doing so is storage problem after the holidays. We never had a tree for 3 years now since I found it too space consuming but the kids wanted one this year. We'll see. Maybe if I find that perfect tree for the house.

Another happy thought is that I'm almost done with my Christmas shopping. Yay! Wrapped some them and I intend to finish wrapping the gifts this weekend. I want to enjoy the rest of the season stress-free and have time to prepare for our Baguio Christmas this year.

How's your holiday season prep coming along? :)

Wednesday, November 28, 2012


This morning I woke up with the just the little boy by my side. His arm and leg imprisoned me to the bed while he continued to sleep peacefully. As I carefully made a move in an attempt to get up, he woke up, gave me the sweetest smile ever and rubbed his nose on mine. The nose to nose gesture is our version of the secret handshake.
As for hubby and our little princess who are naturally early birds, they’ve already gone down to the living room. The bedroom door was ajar so I can hear the little girl screaming numbers to her dad who seem to be inside the bathroom, “Daddy, 57 na!” Is that NBA game she’s watching? Oh no, a basketball convert?

This is one of those mornings that I love to wake up to. Some days are better than this, some days are not so heavenly with kids crying (in unison) when they realize mommy’s not beside them anymore.

There are days when I totally regret mornings with whining kids. They just cry for no reason at all and won’t let me go to work. In moments like this I just think that ‘this too shall pass’ and I close my eyes and imagine them as teenagers retreating to their own corners with their gadgets and without a care for Mom or Dad.

Then I begin to appreciate again their ages right now, 3 and 5 and wish teenage life will not come so soon. When they get older,  I will miss the clinging on my leg like a koala, the horsey play on the bed, the hide and seek which Sam is very good at and the dancing moments (they both love swing).

They will not be toddlers forever. Sophie right now is showing more interest in girly stuff. I miss the time when I fuss over her head-to-toe outfit or when I watch and sing Barney with her. Now, she chooses her own outfit and if I interfere it’s another argument between us. We now argue like she just turned 18 and so grown up. Can’t imagine how it’s gonna be when she’s actually 18 years old.

Sam will always be a baby to me although he refused to be called that. He even refuses to bring ‘gatas’ (milk bottle) to school saying it’s baby stuff and teases his classmates who are still in their diapers and drinks bottled milk to school. Mind you, when he gets home, he takes off his shoes and the first thing he asks for is his ‘gatas.’

Our household is never dull and I that is not to say that it’s always all fun and games. If you have kids at home you’ll know. Just recently, we frequented the doctor’s clinic because of on-and-off fever, cough and colds.

Sometimes when things just get too toxic at home, like everyone wants a piece of me and I seem to have nothing left, I have that tendency to mentally go to a place where I am without family and kids. Will it be more peaceful? Definitely! I’d have more money now. Heck, I’d probably be blogging now from somewhere else in the continent or in my Tagaytay resthouse.

Then again, I wouldn’t exchange the NOW with all those what would have beens. The moments we have every morning, the exciting chaos during kids' birthdays and enrollment, the playtime on weekends and my kids’ witty one liners and funny observations in life…P.R.I.C.E.L.E.S.S.

Baking Partners Challenge # 4: Shaped Dinner Rolls

Uh-oh, I'm sooo late at posting this for Baking Partners. My apologies; work and personal life are hectic as they can ever be with the holidays coming. Plus, my internet is doing crazy stuff lately I couldn't post blogs for a few days. 

Anyway, here's what I have for our shaped dinner rolls challenge. I used the Lions Roll recipe but substituted with whole grains flour instead of white flour. I'm such a fan of whole wheat bread so I thought this challenge was a great opportunity to learn to work on this ingredient. It was really a challenge for me, double up, since I don't do bread that much and I worked on wheat for the first time.  

Here's the recipe which I halved since we still have lots of bread at home when I made these. Honestly, this is such a great recipe, I'm keeping it for life :) The bread is soft even if it already cooled. 

Lion House Rolls 

. 2 cups warm water (110-115 degrees) 
. 2/3 cup nonfat dry milk (instant) 
. 2 Tb. dry yeast 
. 1/4 cup sugar 
. 2 tsp. salt 
. 1/3 cup shortening (butter or margarine) 
. 1 egg 
. 5-5 1/2 cups flour, all purpose (bread flour can be used if you have it on hand) 
In the large bowl of an electric mixer, combine the water and the milk powder and stir so the 
milk dissolves. Add the yeast to tthis mixture then the sugar, salt, shortening, egg and 2 cups of 
the flour. Mix on low speed of mixer until ingredients are wet, then turn to medium speed and 
mix for 2 minutes. Stop the mixer and add 2 more cups of flour then mix on low speed until the 
ingredients are wet, then turn mixer on medium speed and mix for 2 minutes. The dough will 
be getting stiff and you may need to remove the bowl from the mixer and mix in the remaining 
flour by hand. Add approximately 1/2 cup of flour and mix again. (This can be done by hand or 
mixer). The dough should be soft, not overly sticky, and not stiff. (It is not necessary to use the 
entire amount of flour). Scrape the dough off the sides of the bowl and pour approximately on 
tablespoon of vegetable oil all around the sides of the bowl. Turn the dough over in the bowl so 
it is covered with the oil. (This helps prevent the dough from drying out.) Cover with plastic and 
allow to rise in a warm place until double in size. Sprinkle a cutting board or counter with flour 
and put the dough on the flour. It is now ready to roll out and cut into desired shape and size of 
rolls. Place on greased (or parchment lined) baking pans. Let rise in a warm place until the rolls 
are double in size (approx. 1-1 1/2 hours). Bake in a 375-degree oven for 15-20 minutes or until 
they are browned to your satisfaction. Brush with melted butter while hout. Yields 2 to 2 1/2 
dozen rolls. 
mixed ingredients ready for the plastic wrap

left the dough overnight to rise

here's what greeted me the next morning

I also checked Youtube to see some videos on how to do:
1) Croissant

added choco-hazelnut spread since my kids love bread with chocolate

2) Clover with raisins 

3) Kaiser buns

left it for an hour to let it double up in size again. I brushed with milk before before putting the trays in the oven. 

Here's the finish product. At first it felt daunting because they didn't look as soft as I expected. I was thinking maybe because I used pure wheat / bran flour. Maybe I should've mixed it with white flour. What do you think? 
Nevertheless, when I made my first bite, it was as soft as I wanted it. Love wheat bread with raisins :)
I will continue practicing bread-making with wheat until I can make them soft and fluffy.

Recipe Share : Beef and Beans

A bag of red beans has beed sitting in our fridge for I don't know how long. I already forgot when and why I bought those beans, as weight for the pie or to replicate my FIL's pata beans (he makes really good Pata beans). 
since it was holiday last week, I found the perfect time to make beef and beans. I'm not very good at recreating Mexican dish and so I experimented with spices because I know if I put in the basic tomato sauce and soy sauce, it can taste like any tomato-basef dish. So here are  what I used:

250 g. red beans, boiled until cooked
1/2 k. ground  lean beef
3 gloves garlic, chopped
1 onion, julienne
1 cup of canned peeled tomatoes, you can include the juice
3-4 tbsps. soy sauce
2 tsps. paprika, you can add more if you want
1/2 tsp. cumin, for heat
salt and pepper to taste
1 small cabbage, thinly sliced

What to do:
1. saute garlic and onion in a pan with 2tbsps. hot oil.
2. add in beef and cook until brown. add the tomatoes and soy sauce and simmer for a minute or two.
3. add the beans and spices and simmer some more
4. mix half a cup of cabbage, turn off fire.
the paprika and cumin , even just a few tsps into the dish makes a lot of difference. 
top with fresh cabbage and it's ready to serve. perfect with corn tortillas or rice. happy weekend!

HTC One V Phone User Review

This is another gadget post to share my view of the HTC phone, a not so very popular brand with Pinoys.
This phone was an accidental phone; I never had any plans of buying a new phone as I was happy (in simple terms) with my office-supplied mobile phone. It’s a basic Android phone but it serves well…until it dimmed its light one me one day. Something about the strip that snapped which is a common problem with slide phones.

Upon knowing that repair takes days, I decided to buy a new one. Who can survive a day without their mobile phones nowadays? It’s like a security blanket for most of us.

Honestly, hubby and I went to the mall without any inkling what to buy.  I didn’t even bother checking online for reviews of phones in the market now as I was still depressed over a defective phone.

Anyway, after going around the stores in SM North Edsa, I finally settled for an HTC phone and bought the HTC One V, an Android phone. Hubby really sales talked me into getting one as he is a happy HTC user. I teased him, 'binayaran ka ba para mag-promote? Grabe sales talk mo ah? :)
My only question to the sales guy, does it have office programs Word, Excel and Powerpoint? He said it’s not built-in but he can install it for me. That’s all I needed to hear and I bought the phone. Yeah, my life revolves around reports and notes and lists so these programs are very very important to me.

Oh and here are other things I likey about HTC One V:
  1. It runs on Ice Cream Sandwhich OS or 4.0 and costs a lot more affordable than its Android counterparts. Got this unit for less than P15k. 
  2. Camera is the next selling point; they had me at depth-of-field feature, simulataneous still and video recording in HD (720p). 
my fave Tartufo and prosciutto pasta at Amici
little boy's beautiful smile, see the (slightly) blurred background. You can adjust which part of the composition you want to blur 
kid's baon
the trick or treat mermaid, low light capture
    3. Storage capacity – it’s expandable so I can download all the apps I want and can store more videos and photos.
    4. Apps galore! – usapang apps na naman,  my current faves are
    1. Calorie Counter - really helpful to monitor how much I eat to help me keep the extra pounds off.
    2. Runkeeper - it has a voice coach feature which helps me get more of a 1 hour run. Although the first time I used it on the field, my phone shut down but when I restarted my phone, it went okay. Never had that problem ever since. 
    3. MMDA app – helps us know traffic situation in Metro Manila especially EDSA.
    4. Games – right now we’re addicted to 3D bowling, Smurfs, Angry Birds, etc. Sophie is particularly fond of Text Twist. Games are really helpful to keep the kids stay still in restos or at home, we just make sure they play age-appropriate games.
    5. HTC Car – this feature is new to HTC. The interface helps me view maps, contacts and music while driving. Cool right?
    6. Beats Audio – audio right now is good and even better than hubby’s older HTC version but will be much appreciated with Beats headphones which I don’t have yet. Until then, I can’t really say much about this feature.
It also helped that we recently got a Sun broadband package with unlimited internet conection for a month (where we got the free Alcatel tab) so we get to enjoy the apps and other features that requires internet connection even on the go. 

Let's just say, like hubby, I'm a happy user :)

alcatel one touch tablet test run

i write this post using hubby's alcatel one touch tab.
 i decided to give it a test run with my blog while waiting for my little boy to fall asleep. he woke up late from his afternoon nap and now still up playing smurfs village on my htc onev phone. i'll tell you about the phone in another post.

the tablet came with our sun postpaid broadband subscription and so far, performance is okay. hubby downloaded most of his reading files aka comics here and number of apps and games (we're so addicted to 3d bowling game right now).

except that i can't figure out why  the capital letters wont work, typing and web browing experience is pretty much okay. that's a big compliment coming from a person who easily gets techno stressed especially with slow performing machines, my husband can attest to that.

although nothing beats typing on a pc or laptop for the screen size and functions available to both, it may take some getting used to navigating the tablet. let's see later if i can publish this post using the tab.

another thing i like about the tab and my android phone is that you can download apps that will make your life easier such as notepads where you can make your weekly grocery checklist or draft your blog while on the go, maps for travels and a bible for daily reflection. how convenient, right?. you can also download apps that are fun like instagram (it's janakidiary on ig by the way :) ) and games like smurfs (i think sam just spent all my smurfberries). i believe that if there will be a word for the year, the word apps will beat the word 'wagas' by leaps and bounds.

i need to end it here now, it's getting a bit of  chellenge reviewing a long post on a small tab. the keypad ate all the space! and where is that damn cursor when you need it? arrrgh! piece if advice, dont write a long post with a tablet.

Quality Time With Family

Happy Sunday everyone!

Tomorrow it's back to work for hubby and I and back to school for the kids but right now I'm just thankful for the long holiday and whatever is left of it. When a friend asked me last Friday what I plan to do with the long holiday, I answered 'Nothing. I plan to do some planking.' Planking is hubby's term when he wants to be a couch potato all weekend. Planking as in being catatonic or inactive for days.

Seriously, I couldn't do that, stay still for even just couple of hours, I'd go crazy. Seriously still, we didn't plan any out-of-town trip or major activity, we just wanted to spend some Q (quality and quantity) time with the kids. It's been a hell lot busy at work the past weeks, I rarely go home on time so the four-day off work is such a blessing. Time to make it up with the kiddos so we played with them, biked, did arts and crafts and just got crazy silly most times.

Yesterday was the only time we went out of the house, to do some Christmas shopping since there was toy sale at Megatrade Hall in Megamall. It's a nice thought that my Christmas list is getting more names checked. I hope to finish all my gift shopping by end of November.

Anyway, while we patiently go through aisles and aisles of toys, hubby and Sophie spotted a Barbie coin bank and the little girl asked is she could have one.

So her Little Ms. Piggy, her coin bank since she was 2, is getting replaced. Awww! I love Ms. Piggy, she's been a loyal money keeper for years but it seems that the little girl has outgrown her fave coin bank. .

Anyway, one thing good about having a new and bigger coin bank is that she's determined to keep on saving more. I always tell her to save because if she save much she can buy much. If she save little, then she'll have to settle for something small. She always wanted to buy a Barbie Princess and the Popstar toy set (her recent addiction, as in she memorized the lines of all characters) so I told her to save everyday with that toy set in mind.

By the way, another good news is Little Ms. Piggy is not going anywhere. She's got a new friend by the name of Sam who's more than willing to keep her stuffed with coins and bills :)  I'm pretty sure he knows what he wants to buy with his saved money...

Cute Halloween

This is obviously another Halloween post and, promise, my last for the year :0 With kids around, there's always a reason bake and have fun with food. This year our theme is cute Halloween inspired by the cartoonish monster candy topping I bought from Sweet Craft :)
I made muffins and dirt cake. The muffin recipe came from our recent Baking Partners challenge, Pumpkin Chocolate Chip muffin and topped it with dark chocolate ganache as adhesive for the icing. Isn't that vampire the cutest?

And this is our dirt cake, made out of Betty Crocker fudge brownie mix, glow in the dark gummy worms, more of monster candies, choco lentils and marbles. The kids dig this so much!

When I went to the market to buy squash for my muffin, I spotted a couple of these really cute squash, they're as small as a coffee bun but they're perfect shape for a jack o' lantern. I used one squash for my muffin and the other we carved into a lantern.

Lighted with a tea candle. Our very first pumpkin lantern and we're definitely doing this again next year.

To complete our cute Halloween theme, we dressed up the outdoor with these monster faces. I bought corrugated card boards in bright colors (P44 per pack) and cut them to different shapes and sizes. Can I just share how much improvement  an additional layer of eyes can make?

Here, Sophie was adding dots to the ghost's face

We hang all the monster faces on the window and added some bats and black cat (not in photo). I also found jelly eyes in the grocery and hang them around the lawn.

 Happy Halloween! More so, this time is also the perfect occasion to remember the Saints who guide and help the living and our departed loved ones. Let's light some candles and pray for the soul of our departed relatives and friends.

Halloween 2012: Costumes and Candies Galore!

I've never seen so many Spidermen in my life until October 26th. I'm talking about the Halloween costume party in my kids' school with countless Batman, Spidey and princesses came to strut their special outfits. 

Just look at the throng of kiddos in princes/princesses, superhero and modern day cartoon costumes - the three categories of the costume contest. 

 As I shared in my previous post, the little girl came as Ariel under the princes, princesses/fairies category. That's her with the red hair and blue mermaid outfit.

And my little prince went as Spider-Man (but refused to wear his mask, itchy daw). I suspect that Sam's fascination with Spider-Man was hubby's fault. I try as much as I can to limit their TV viewing to Disney channel and educational shows. Then hubby came home one night with a Spider-Man comic book for the little boy. Naghahanap na karamay sa comic book addiction niya...

Back to the party, even the teachers came dressed in fun characters like Jasmine, Pocahontas, the jester, Alice in Wonderland, etc. 

Sophie with her K1 teacher who came as Pocahontas
And yeah, I was one of the judges that day and being so disallowed me to vote for my kids. Bummer right? So it was to my utter surprise when my little girl won the top two best costume in princess category. Yay! All that sewing and beading paid off somehow.
After the party the original plan was to go house to house for the trick or treat but due to the bad weather, the school came up with plan B, trick or treat in the classrooms. Parents just brought the bags of candies in school. Kids were ecstatic with their pumpkin baskets overflowing with candies and other goodies from the trick or treat. 

The following night, it's another trick or treat in our subdivision and both kids went house to house with their cousins and friends. That means MORE CANDIES and sugar rush problems. lol!

How was your Halloween fun? :)
