Filipino Barbeque

For those who have been sending me requests for Filipino Barbeque recipe, your wait is over! I finally got the chance to make barbeque again and take some pix...so today I'm sharing with you how we make these yummy pork skewers...
Filipino barbecue is made of thinly sliced pork which is soaked overnight in a special marinade and then skewered on a bamboo stick and grilled over charcoal while basting. Though a little time consuming to prepare, the wait is worth it, and you won't regret making this Filipino favorite!

Want to know what the special marinade is? Check out the recipe...

Ham and Broccoli Breakfast Casserole

Filling my daughters up with nourishing breakfast has always been part of my daily goals. It is a challenge sometimes, but a tasty and healthy casserole like this one that I am sharing with you today, never fails to get my girls to eat the most important meal of the day!

This casserole has been a favorite here at our home for years now. It is a combination of traditional breakfast food including bread, eggs, ham, cheese and milk...with the addition of broccoli. It's very easy to prepare...you just have to toss everything together, put it in the oven and VOILA...you have a delicious and nutritious breakfast!

I know that time is the biggest obstacle to preparing a good breakfast. Well, the good thing about this casserole is that you can make it the night before and just heat it up in the oven or microwave in the morning. :)

Blueberry Bread

My daughters are now in the second week of school...and I'm really loving this new book from Laura Fuentes called The Best Homemade Kids' Lunches on the Planet! It has really given me a lot of new ideas on what to make for their packed lunches. 
On the first day of school, I tried one of the sandwich recipes in the book called Kid's Philly Steak Sandwich. I tweaked it a bit by adding caramelized onions and bell peppers. The result was amazing, and both Clarise and Cherlin loved it!
During the past week, I have tried five other recipes from the book, and I must say that they are all good! Love Laura's easy and healthy ideas! The book has over 200 recipes which are not just for lunch, but for snack and for breakfast as well!

This Blueberry Bread recipe that I'm sharing with you today was from the said book. It's a little different from the blueberry bread recipes I've tried before because of the use of coconut oil as substitute for butter, and yogurt as substitute for milk. I followed the exact recipe except for the amount of blueberries. Instead of the suggested 1½ cups, I just used 1 cup which I think is just the perfect amount. The result was wonderful! It's soft, moist, yummy...and healthier compared to the usual blueberry bread!
