Cheers to life. Cheers to everyday.

Life with three kids… Where do I begin?┬á Everyday is an adventure – no dull moments with them. Sure it’s hard (say that again!?). But it is also full of rich and rewarding moments. Each day is a reason to say “cheers to life!”

It’s not the big and the great, though, but the small pockets of happy moments that really make mothering my three kids fulfilling. And when are we really at our happiest, nicest, best moments? When else, but while we’re eating together! ­čśŤ

Whether we are making food or partaking of it, celebrating a birthday or a high grade, going out for a family meal or a quick after-school snack, eating brings the “cheers to everyday”.

So I put together a video of some of our best moments with food!

Homemade longganisa recipe

Because my son is atopic and has many food allergies, we’ve avoided eating food with preservatives as much as we can for the longest time. That means hotdogs, commercial tocino and longganisa, Spam, ham, instant noodles, and a lot of other convenient foodstuff are off the list.┬áThis homemade┬álongganisa recipe is a family favorite, along with our chicken tocino recipe.

The package had a warning at the bottom that said: “The chicken you are about to experience is highly addictive.”

I’ve read mixed reviews about Chicken Charlie. Some raved; others were bleh about it. Continue reading Chicken Charlie Korean style fried chicken
