My new kitchen toy


As the man and head of my family, I try to be the best father figure for my son and daughter teaching them between right and wrong, good and bad, respect and love for everyone. As the husband to my sweet wife, I try to give her my unconditional love and support. Since being on temporary disability for the last month, I've been devoting a lot of time in the kitchen trying to cook wholesome, delicious and satisfying meals for my wife and kids but it's not easy because most of us are picky about what we will or will not eat and I'm no exception. Do you have a similar situation in your family? How do you deal with it? Money is tight right now with gas prices sky rocketing out of control and being on disability, it's hard. It's not like we can just go out everyday and buy ready-made food. It would be too expensive, right? So we have to endure and be creative at home. In a previous post I wrote about cleaning up the kitchen cabinets of boxes of cake mix, etc. To make a long story short, I used leftover cake mix to make a cake but it didn't come out too well since I didn't have an electric mixer to mix the ingredients. Actually, it came out pretty bad but in the picture, it looked pretty good. I said I would not do any more baking until I was able to purchase a mixer. We purchased it the other day and I couldn't wait to use it. Today, I went to one of my favorite filipino websites and that's none other than panlasangpinoy.com to find the recipe for the banana bread that my kids love to eat. It came out great and my family loved it. I'm looking forward to making some french croissants here soon. I love to cook for my family. How about you?
