Smooth & Easy Hummus

So someone has been asking me to make hummus for months now. I finally gave in and tried it out earlier today!

Basic Ingredients: (AKA what you really need)
1 can (400g) of chickpeas
1/4 cup water
1 & 1/2 tbsp olive oil
1/4 tsp salt

I am aware that hummus is commonly made with lemon juice and tahini. However, these ingredients are not as easy to come-by. So yay for tahini-free hummus!

Mogu Tree Noodle House

It’s my first holiday since I started working! The start of the rainy season was not going to keep me from enjoying this day. So we had a mini adventure at one of my favorite cities ever. Yup, Marikina! Woot.

After visiting the kids at CRIBS we took a cab to Lilac Street, Marikina. The cab ride was awful but that’s not what this post is about so I’ll save that for later.

For those of you who are in to the make-your-own dish restaurants, this is a definite must-try! You get to pick your soup base, type of noodles, and toppings.

Office Hacks: Microwave Poached Eggs

I leave way too early to prepare and eat breakfast at home, so I’m usually stuck eating oatmeal at the office pantry. However, there are days when I just want to have a hot plate of eggs and toast. Eating out is not an option for me because I’m cheap and the eggs served in restaurants are way too oily. Needless to say, we do not have a stove at the office. So microwave eggs were the perfect solution!

3. Vinegar (optional)
4. Microwavable mug (better if you use a regular mug, not an oversized mug/bowl like mine)
5. Microwavable plate/cover
6. 3 minutes tops Continue reading
