Donating Breastmilk

Being a breastfeeding/breastpumping mom - I've had my fair share of highs and lows.  Good thing is that I have a supportive family, supportive friends and supportive (online) strangers who lift me up and give me advice on breastfeeding/breastpumping.  My Kailee is nearing her 10th month mark and STILL I am giving her my breastmilk! Freezer Stash To pay it forward - I have been donating my frozen breastmilk to friends and strangers in need.  Since I have a good supply - I share to those in need.  Its just my way to support lactating mothers - help them when they need it.  You see, breastfeeding/breastpumping is not easy - its really hardwork!  One may say its FREE but you have to be healthy, nourished with good food and is hydrated at ALL times!  And being well fed - well, that's not cheap! Storing and collecting breastmilk too is not cheap.  You'd have to have ample refrigerator and freezer space.  You'll need storage bags, storage containers and etc.  You need

Chef Boy the Kusina Master

I like watching cooking shows. When I was younger, I remember getting up early on a Saturday morning to watch 'Cooking it up with Nora'.  I used to play with my then only girl cousin - a cooking show!  Since she had those Little Tikes kitchen set - we would pretend being hosts to a cooking show.  This I think helped with my fascination with the culinary arts.  I pursued this fascination by enrolling in Sylvia Reynonso-Gala's kiddie cooking classes.  I wanted to further my studies when I was in Senior year BUT there wasn't a college degree in culinary arts.  It was only recently that culinary art schools were put up that gave you a bonafide diploma on cooking. You see, I have this idea in my head.  That being a chef is a title to be earned and not learned.  That one does not need a diploma that proves he or she is a chef.  I look up more to those cooks who earned their being called a chef.  Rachel Ray always said that she is not a chef but is a cook - and I understan

Irene's Quezo de Bola Cheesecake

Cheesecake was the first thing that I learned to make - a lot of.  It was easy and most everyone likes cheesecake.  My cheesecake was really simple - I got the recipe from my ICA HS Home Economics class - it was a no bake recipe.  You can say I impressed quite a number of people with it - hehehe... To tell you the truth - Cheesecake is not something I really really like.  I appreciate it but its not my favorite. That is UNTIL - Irene's Quezo de Bola Cheesecake! She gifted me and my Panget one for Christmas and it was D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S!  The mix of sweetness and  tartness of the quezo de bola was WONDERFUL!  It was actually love at first taste - my Panget said it was really good and sinful (the cheesy-ness is loooooooooove!)  We decided to keep half of the cheesecake for the next day - but while watching TV - I couldn't stop thinking about the cheesecake!  I finally gave in and took the half out of the ref and ate it all.  Imagine - it was haunting my mind the whole tim
