Happy Saturday y'all!!!! Love Love Love my Saturday mornings. My time with Family. My mornings with Jack. Our Snuggles in bed with the kiddos as we watch Saturday morning cartoons. Saturday wine with mom and grandma. Saturdays are one of my favorite days of the week. It is our day that is always devoted to family. Saturdays have been about family since my grandma moved up here from the Bay Area and since we use to visit to the Bay Area on weekends. I love our Saturdays together. Our Saturdays of bonding and reconnecting after our week. No matter what happens during out week, Saturdays always bring us back together. Saturdays have grown. It started off just mom, grandma, me and Ashley, and it has grown by three children. They join our Saturdays every week. I mean, I dare not bring them, I would definitely get in trouble. Grandma loves her time with the great-grand babies. We're building tradition together. We're building memories and these are the memories that will stay with the kids forever. They will remember these good times, our laughter, and our moments that bring us all together every single Saturday.
As far as cooking, I didn't cook today, but I didn't want to let y'all down either so I wanted to share a little recipe I had up my sleeve. It's a rainy windy day today.... Trust me, just ask my hair.... After pampering myself and getting dolled up today and I walked outside to have my hair completely blown like crazy by gusts of wind. That was fun. I swear it was going to swoop little Jonathan away because he's so little. He definitely got ALL of my Filipino genes!!!!
So on this windy, rainy day, I wanted to share with you a little soup recipe because there is nothing like some hot soup on a rainy day to warm you up!!!! So.... here's a little something I had up my sleeve for y'all... please grab a bowl, a spoon and come enjoy this deliciousness!!!

This dish right here is truly one of my specialties. I love making this dish. If it’s for Jacks Birthday, Valentine’s Day, or just because we want something fancy. Usually I just do the Filet with shrimp or lobster and topped with holandaise and asparagus, but this Valentine’s Day I decided to elevate my recipe a little more and try something new and this is what I came up with. I hope you all enjoy and if you have someone special, try it! Steak Oscar for Two Ingredients: For the Steak: 2 Filet Mignon Steaks 1 tbs . Himalayan Salt 3 tbs . fresh cracked black pepper 2 tbs . avocado oil For the Hollandaise: 2 egg yolks 1 stick butter Juice of 1 lemon Salt and pepper to taste Dash of fresh tarragon minced For the Crab Cakes: 1 Dungeness crab shelled, and cartilage removed 1 tbs . fresh lemon juice 1 egg 1 tsp. himilayan salt 1 ½ tsp . cracked black pepper 1 tbs. fresh parsley, finely minced ½ cup fresh grated parmesa
After years of cooking and sharing recipes, I have finally put together my blog site. Its been a long journey in cooking for friends and family. It wasn't until recently that I was given the confidence to actually create a blog and share everything I have learned and am still learning in the kitchen. I recently was given the opportunity to air on live tv with Good Day Sacramento. It was quite the experience. Friends and family told me I was a natural on tv, but what they didn't see on tv was how extremely nervous me. My mom and my husband were there calming me down. After each take, I would let out a big "Whew" and ask how I did. Apparently my nervousness did not show when the camera was rolling. Thank Goodness! I would like to share the recipe of my dish on Good Day Sacramento with all of you. Spaghetti Squash is that ingredient that we all seem to forget about. It's amazing and very good for you to eat. I think when people look at a spaghetti squash,
Motherhood. Where do I even begin. It is both beautiful, challenging and somehow completes every part of me. When I was a young child, I remember always picturing myself as a mommy when I grew up and I knew that I would be a great mommy and I wanted to be a best friend to my kids like my mom was to me. I never knew the challenges that came along with Motherhood. I never knew how much you would worry about these precious gifts from God that you brought into this world. A dear friend of mine is a new mommy to her second child and I have been chatting with her about her challenges she's been having and that has prompted me to write this post, because I'm hoping that, like some moms out there, I want you to know, that, yes, we go through this... so I want to share with you my story. I guess I should start with my birth stories.... Cause those are always fun... LOL With our first child, Nicholas, our birth plan, as with most, we wanted to of course go the natural way
