French Toasts

French Toasts again for breakfast! This is one of my son's favorite meals in the morning. He likes it with strawberry and maple syrup. Hubby and I like it too. It's very easy to make. All we have to do is dip the bread in a bowl of beaten eggs and fry it on both sides. I put a bit of vanilla and cinnamon powder. I don't like much the latter but a bit is okay. It makes the french toasts smell good and yummy! It's today's breakfast with bacon strips and fried eggs.

Recipes Online

It's more than a year now since I started blogging. Thanks to my father who shared with me his recipes and that made me create this site. He's the one who cooks in the family most of the time and he is good. Family friends and even his co-workers will ask him to cook for them if there's a special occasion. I regret that I didn't try learning or even observing him while cooking before. But it's not too late that's why I have this food blog.

Thanks to technology and other bloggers too. All recipes which are popular can be found now online and people like me who just learned to cook can have a lot of choices on which recipe to follow. There are a lot of variations online. Just like my site,, some of my recipes are modified by me. I tried other recipes then share it here with the ingredients and directions that I added or omitted. I like visiting other food blogs too and websites like It has information about food and recipes. You will find or search all your favorite recipes there and a lot more. I am sure that you will like this website too. So just keep checking online for recipes and enjoy cooking!

Quesadilla is my new favorite Mexican food aside from chili relleno. I just learned to like it recently when I tried to order at Los Hermano's Mexican Restaurant. Their food was good especially the quesadilla. I ordered the chicken quesadilla and my son even liked it too. So after I tried it, I always order quesadilla then at Taco Bell. I tried all the different kinds that they have and I like it all. I am not too picky with food and when I like something, I won't get tired easily of eating it over and over again. I should have tried the quesadilla long time ago. Then I could have other choices every time we dine in at a Mexican restaurant.

Lavazza Coffee Beans

Have you heard of the Lavazza Coffee Beans? I am not a coffee addict so I am not really familiar with coffee beans. But I do drink coffee once in a while. It was only during my pregnancy that I always drink coffee. It was like a cup to two daily and it should be cold or iced coffee. The same with my second pregnancy. Pregnant women should avoid caffeine but a cup to three cups of coffee daily won't hurt the baby. Blame it to pregnancy hormones, I really loved the coffee aroma as well the taste that I really craved for it. I still drink up to now but not as much when I was pregnant. So this made me come across to Lavazza Coffee Beans.

My husband and I use the ground coffee beans. He brews it every morning and I take a sip if I am too lazy to make a cup. When I heard about Lavazza coffee beans, I would like to try it. I might get addicted to it just like my husband and who knows he might be hooked to it. I heard that Lavazza is Italy's #1 espresso coffee roasting company. They begin by selecting the best coffee beans that the world has to offer, and then roasts to perfection. It's their roast, which is much lighter than then flavor you may be accustom to from Starbucks, that allows for more of flavor of the bean and less of the bitterness to shine through. Because these beans are not oily on the outside, they work exceptionally well in superautomatic espresso machines and will not cause the level of clogging that oilier beans do.

If you are interested with it too, you might want to visit their website. Check it out now and let's make a cup to take a break.

What's for Breakfast?

It's my son's favorite-French toasts, eggs and sausages! I used strawberry syrup for his French Toasts and he really loved it. Aside from pancakes, he loves these wheat bread dipped in beaten eggs with a bit of vanilla and cinnamon. Frying it is so easy. I like it not so toasted, just light browning it. It tastes really good with fried eggs with salt and pepper and little sausages. A perfect breakfast for a beautiful morning. Better start the day with a yummy meal!
