For my mother’s birthday years ago, okay like two years ago, I gave her Ellie Kriger’s The Food You Crave recipe book and she’s only made one recipe since. She tried making her Turkey Meatloaf and her Smashed Potatoes with Sour Cream & Chives. Well, it wasn’t a hit for her, but it was for me! So, ladies & gents… meatloaf is what’s for dinner tonight.

Sorry I’ve been M.I.A. this week. Nothing to say except that life gets busy!
I started my cake decorating class last weekend and I’ve already learned so much. Our instructor owns her own bake shop out in Pungo but primarily makes wedding cakes. The first thing she says is: “Homemade is great, but I prefer packaged cake mix…more specifically Duncan Hines’ Moist Deluxe Butter Recipe Golden Cake Mix.”
After reading this post in my Google Reader, I started to crave it. It truly is my Filipino comfort food. Luckily for me, my mother emails me and asks me if I want to have dinner at my parents’ house this weekend. Um, hell yes! Of course I ask her for the recipe, and she starts whining.
Oh yeah! I forgot to tell you…I sent her a link to my blog this past this week and at first she was happy. The next day? Not so much. She said, “Just look up Filipino recipes online! I don’t measure, it’s all in my head!” And after an hour of bickering, she says, “Fine!” Haha. Love you, Mom.
I promise I know other dinner recipes other than Chicken, but we just bought a huge bag of individually wrapped frozen Chicken breasts from Costco.
I got this particular recipe from the recipe book that came with the Bullet Express Trio my mom got me this past Christmas. You don’t necessarily need the Trio to make this dish, btw.
