El Real: Pasta Cravings

Pasta can never be absent in a pantry of a home who everyone loves pasta dishes. We are certified pasta lovers and there is not a week passed that we don't enjoy pasta together. One of the pasta brands we love is El Real Pasta. " EL REAL’s special quality pasta retains the richness of your pasta sauce allowing you to savor every mouthful! " - El Real's Facebook Page What makes it different from other pasta brands, it is relatively affordable which nearly all mommies in a budget like me preferably look for. El Real pasta is easy to cook and very firm. It cooks up nicely and has a smooth texture. I don't really like mushy pasta because it doesn't tastes that good. El Real Pasta tastes like pasta should, one of the best tasting pasta we ever tried. It makes our every pasta recipe very scrumptious. One of the best pasta choices in our local market.

As my children grows up, they develop different potentials. That is why I never stop from trying new products to best suit their changing needs. Now I would like to share my review about my newly discovered baby product, White Dove. This is not new in the market, I have seen several mommies using this to their kids but this is just the first time I let my son tried this. I chanced upon this brand of baby products when I was with group of mommy friends. Some of them recommended to try White Dove brand for my toddler. Just a little background about this product, White Dove is a quality product of Personal Collection.

Gathering Preparation

During family events, I am always in charge for all the table setups and I am pretty sure why. It is because I already own all kinds of table fabrics our family event could ever need. We are currently cooking a reunion or a small gathering next month and I already have the best table set up in mind. Perfect to use are my 72 inch round premier tablecloth. This Poly Premier products are stain and wrinkle resistant which shows great quality. I have them in several colors which I believe will make our gathering venue more visually attractive. I am still planning what other decorations to add. I am pretty much excited, we are sure it's gonna be a very memorable event for everyone.

Easy Puto (Steamed Rice Cake) Recipe

Last month, I spent a lot of time in the kitchen because of the holidays which is good because I was able to try more recipes and was able to learn few kitchen skills, lol.

It is one of the traditional merienda (afternoon snack) and also almusal (breakfast) we keep in the family.

#ProductReview: JERGENS Lotion

When it comes to taking care of my skin, I always look up to my mom. She is the most vain granny you'll ever know, hahah. Her skin and face doesn't look her age because her skin has been properly taken care of eversince she was teenager. She started early on proper skin care routine and stick to it to maintain a naturally healthy and young looking skin.  I always wish my skin is like hers, if only I listened to her and as patient as her to maintain proper skin care routine,  sigh .  No, she has never been to any facial center or spa because she really don't like the idea of spending that much when the costs can already buy the skin care products she has been using for years.

Home Office Organization Inspiration

Some of you might know, I have been working on how to organize my home office eversince late last year. To be honest, I am running out of idea of how I will organize the paper stuff and all the small and big items. I also wanted a small vanity area at my office since I like to fix my face everytime I am feeling so stressed out with my daily activities at home.  So most probably, I am collecting ideas using Mr. Google and looked up on organization ideas to inspire me in designing my home office. And here are some of what I am thrilled of to try getting the idea and incorporate in designing my own home office.
