Brownies with Dark Chocolate Walnuts

Brownies with Dark Chocolate Chunks and Walnuts

We have a fudgy, chunky and easy cocoa brownies for your family. I guarantee that the chocolate lover in your family will ask for more! This brownie recipe will easily become a family favorite! Tips: I prefer to use Dutch processed cocoa powder when available. Otherwise, a natural cocoa powder will do great as well. 70% dark chocolate chunks is a MUST. You can double the amount of chocolate if you don’t fancy nuts. CHECK brownies after 20 minutes of baking, if the middle is still runny and wet, bake for 5 minutes more. Continue baking until you see the middle part is set but still give a bit of movement when pan is moved. I baked our brownies in our electric oven for exactly 27 minutes. Important! Bake two batches and hide one tray for yourself.

Spanish Bread Recipe

The smell of freshly baked bread greeting me as I step out of our room and on the dining table a brown paper bag filled with soft bread filled with sweet buttery filling and my aunt Mama Alma pouring ice cold coke on a glass with a smile “Meryenda na ‘nak! Nagpapalit si Daddy ug tinapay.” Right there at that moment I was a small kid again forgetting for a minute that a newborn baby was peacefully sleeping in the bedroom. Spanish Bread is a childhood favorite which was always available at the neighborhood bakery. It tops my list next to ‘double body’ and ‘pande coco’. I’m so happy that the first batch I baked hit the spot! As soon as I took a bite, memories of me as kid enjoying afternoon snack with my Lola Mommy, Mama, friends and siblings embraced me.

Grilled Chicken Wrap

Sandwich wraps is a fun alternative to our good old sandwich for school lunch. I find it much more filling and my kids find it easier to eat. Filling for a sandwich wrap can vary from the protein, vegetables and dressing desired. What I have here is a marinade recipe for chicken that would work for a lot of dishes.

Easy Mango Float Recipe

Mango Float is one of the easiest, delicious Filipino dessert you can make. I grew up enjoying this delicious dessert that my Mama whips up every chance she gets hold of a sweet ripe and juiciest mangoes. What is a mango float? Close your eyes and imagine biting into a spoonful of soft cloud of sweetened cream with generous mangoes between layers of graham crackers. Thank you for sharing your recipe, Mama. The mango float you make still remains to be the best version I’ve had all my life.

Having a school lunch menu will help us parents pack healthier options for the whole family, especially if we are press for time in the morning, planning ahead is key to a smooth week ahead.

I have been packing my kids school lunches in an OmieBox several times for the past school year. Now, my kids and I can give you our thoughts on this product. OmieBox is the only compartment style lunch available in the market that is capable of storing both hot and cold food. Perfect for kids who enjoy hot meals for lunch. Pros: Tons of space, each compartment is a whole thumb deep which means you can pack a lot of food to satisfy a big appetite. The handle makes it easy for the kids to carry around without the need to pack it inside another bag. Leak-proof – each compartment is sealed individually, packing yoghurt is possible. Insulated bowl is made of two layers of stainless steel. I pack hot food around 6am and the kids said it still is warm by break time which is around 10am. A slider …
