Cooking is like therapy for me, it simply makes me feel good and relaxed. I have been experimenting and creating my own dishes lately and I can be proud to say hubs loves it all. I tend to cook dishes with veggies may it be pasta or meats, even with seafoods. We really want to keep a balanced diet as much as possible. This kind of eating will also influence baby in the future, he will learn how to eat veggies without much fuss if he's well exposed seeing us enjoying eating veggies.

Italian cooking has a big influence in my cooking lately. I love to use wines for cooking my roasts and pastas which makes me consider getting jk adams wine rack accompanied by jk adams spice rack for my expanding spice varieties. I also better change my stove side rack which often hooks on my clothes when I'm going back and forth the kitchen. The jk adams pot rack can hold my pots and pans better without sliding by and getting hooked to my shirt. But even without these upgrades that I'm thinking of, it can't stop me from cooking anytime I wish to do so.

I can't wait to have a bigger kitchen where I can do more things without much space limitations. I plan to get baby involved with mommy in the kitchen as he grows up so he can have better interest with foods and nutrition. This will encourage him to appreciate other foods because he had his hands work on it. This is a better way of introducing foods to the kids, by letting them be involved in the process.

    cooking is fun and relaxing when one has time, isn't it? I remember when I used to work, came home at 6 and still have to cook. It was tiring.

    Ayie ganda, you are a great cook. The food looks really yummy. How do you cook the casserole? Does it involves baking?

    mummy sexy,

    You can use any chicken part or even any meat you like, even fish like salmon... pan fry it skin down first with olive oil (any oil preference) and little butter for taste til it's crispy and cooked all the way through then saute some garlic and onions, deglaze with a little white wine and toss in any veggies you wish to put. Easy right? just season it with salt and pepper and any other herbs and spices, that will be just fine. One thing I did with the chicken to make it tender is that I brined it first with salt+sugar+water solution and just left it in the fridge for before I used it. Try it with salmon, no brining needed just plain seasoning and it will cook faster. The asparagus i used is canned that's why it's mushy but it;s great with fresh of course. No baking needed but it's an option
