In the Kitchen will be the category where I will post some of the recipes I cook for my family. I promise you these are super-duper easy recipes because I’m really not an expert in the kitchen plus the fact that I don’t want recipes with so many steps/how-tos. Just 4-6 instructions, anything more than that, I skip the page of my recipe book and look for simpler recipes. So newbies in the kitchen, I hope you’ll try my recipes or suggestions and let’s share kitchen secrets!
It was a rainy week and Gwen’s classes were suspended since Wednesday. Since we’re all at home on a rainy Friday night, I decided to cook some comfort food for the family. There’s nothing more comforting than warm hugs and cuddles from your loved ones especially during this weather. It’s a great prelude to the weekend, watching our favorite TV series while enjoying our bowl of Chicken Sopas.
Macaroni Soup is one recipe I can make using what’s available in the fridge. Ground meat, corned beef, ham…. this is what I like about sopas, it’s very versatile. Last week, Magnolia sent me 5 of their #PambansangManok, Magnolia Whole Chicken. So this is what went to my Chicken Sopas.
Feeling Miss Universe naman ako while prepping the Magnolia Chicken. If you haven’t watched it, Pia Wurtzbach, Margie Moran, and Gloria Diaz also chose Magnolia Chicken. Don’t settle for less, sa Magnolia, you can be sure that the chickens are free from antibiotic, rich in omega-3, free from hormones and steroids, and grown from stress-free environments.
