The OREO cookies have always been my favorite cookies. They have been since I was a kid and they always will be. I usually like to dunk my OREO cookies in a big glass of milk but before I do that, I have to lick the fillings first. For me, dunking the cookie in a milk is one of the best ways to eat the OREO cookies.


Recently, I discovered a new way to dunk my OREO cookies. It involves a little bit of work but it is very easy to make and …

Mussel Soup

I was not able to cook this dish until recently. I did not know that I could find mussels here in the US. Mussel soup is a great dish to serve during the cold and chilly days. It is very simple to make a delicious mussel soup.

You can get frozen mussels at Walmart. I was craving for mussel soup and my hubby helped me satisfy that craving. I made this soup the way I wanted it. Fortunately, my hubby likes my mussel soup recipe. The preparation is so simple. Below you can find ingredients you need and the procedure …

Stir Fry Bamboo Shoots

I do not consider myself a good cook but my hubby says I am. I have never tried cooking stir fry bamboo shoots so this was my first. Fortunately, it turned out good. At least, that is what my hubby says. My hubby encouraged me to cook stir fry bamboo shoots after he tried it at lunch at my friend’s place. The missing ingredient in my version was shrimp because, at that time, I did not have some available in my fridge. I was using fresh bamboo shoots.

Below you can find the ingredients and procedure of my own version …

Tuna Sushi

Kinilaw or raw fish salad is a popular dish in the Philippines, especially for birthdays and family get together.  My sister ordered this raw fish salad pictured the day she and her family from Germany arrived in our hometown in the Philippines.  It is made with tuna, cucumber, vinegar, onions, ginger, salt, hot pepper and such.

I am not good at making kinilaw.  I tried making some with anchovies once but it did not turn out well and I have never tried making it again since. The problem was probably the anchovies. They were not fresh and had been frozen …
