Honey Soy Chicken recipe

Honey Soy Chicken with De’Longhi Multifry

I have been using my De’Longhi MultiFry for more than 1 year now and it has reduced my work time in the kitchen. The first time I got to use the MultiFry was with Chef Osama where we made Um Ali. Some Dubai base Mama media influencers were invited to celebrated Mother’s Day with Chef Marta and De’Longhi at Galeries Lafayette Gourmet, The Dubai Mall. Fun morning with Chef Marta and #DeLonghi at @galerieslafayettedubai We made sweet potato fries, blueberry muffins and Chicago style pizza with the use of @delonghioficial #MultiFry A post shared by Abigail Caidoy (@cuddlesandcrumbs) on May 7, 2016 at 3:42am PDT   Chef Marta Yanci taught us how to properly use the Multifry and showed us 3 recipes (fries, pizza and muffin) that we can re-create at home. The kids and I prepared Sweet Potato fries and it was surprising that both really liked the fries. I have mainly been cooking most chicken dishes and crispy lechon on our MultiFry because it just cooks much faster and use a small amount of oil. …

JC Nichols Memorial Fountain with horse

Kansas City Fountains at The Plaza

We spent 1 week at Kansas City during our US trip to spend time with my Uncle Bernard. It was our chance to experience the “American life” my Uncle has been living for more than 10 years. I just use to hear stories of how life is back in Kansas, it was nice to finally see the places in his stories and dine at his favorite restaurants. The first things that the kids noticed on our drive from the airport to my Auntie Lory’s house was the big fountain located at the entrance/exit of the airport and then some more along the way. You will see more beautiful fountains at the Plaza. To which the kids declared that they need more quarter to make a wish. Later on we found out that Kansas City is also called The City of Fountains. We were then on a quest to have the kids photo taken on each fountain we see. The first fountains built in Kansas City were made for the horses, dogs and birds to drink. If you are on …

Pan Asian Night at Kris with a View

Thursday is movie night at home, kids get to pick one movie and eat all the chips & popcorn they want. We made one exception last April 28 because it was LittleMiss C’s school concert. Girls in her class dressed up as witches and boys as sorcerers for their Happiness Spell themed concert. We are so proud of LittleMiss who danced and smiled during her performance. Definitely a reason to celebrate. So we headed to Park Regis Kris Kin Hotel located at Karama just across Burjuman for their Pan Asian Night buffet. It was our first time at Kris Kin, our friends said they have one of the best panoramic city view of Dubai. Kris with a View is situated at the 19th floor of the hotel and they have an unobstracted view of Karama, Bur Dubai and Deira. Kid’s suggested that we can celebrate New Year’s eve here with a clear view of Burj Khalifa. The Pan Asian Themed Night offers best dishes from Malaysia, Thailand, China, Japan and India. We arrived just before 8pm and the restaurant was already busy with diners-family and friends …
