Classic Glazed Ham




If you are a subscriber of our blog, then you probably already know that we are on holiday in Asia at the moment. I do try, when I get the chance, to spend the Christmas season with my family. There's just no place like home for the holidays. It doesn't hurt when you can spend Christmas season by the beach and enjoy the sun and the sea either! For me that's the ultimate holiday treat!!! :)

Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup


Whether the weather is cold or hot a good soup is always a delicious option! When I was in the Philippines, I practically and literally knew only one kind of soup and that is "sopas" - the Filipino version of Macaroni soup. I don't know why. Perhaps because sopas is my family's perennial favorite and so it's the only one that I can remember eating while I was growing up.

Cranberry Eggnog French Toast Casserole


Oh the weather outside is frightful....let it snow, let it snow, let it snow....so goes the song. Thankfully, this year I won't have to sing this song as I am in a warm and beautiful tropical island republic - The Philippines. This year I will have a wonderful warm Christmas, yay! Please don't get me wrong - I do like a white Christmas, too. After all, I have lived in the US for over a decade and am used to having a cold and wintry Christmas. However, this year I am home not only to be with my family, whom I haven't seen for 3 years, but to celebrate my parents' 50th wedding Anniversary! So, I do have the perfect excuse to have a warm Christmas this year! I am truly delighted to be with my family for such a special occasion.

Ginisang Munggo (Mung Bean Soup / Stew)



Mung Beans or locally called Mango is considered a staple food in the Philippines especially in the provinces. Just a small amount of mung beans with added meat (like chicken, pork, or shrimp) or even meatless truly goes a long, long way and can easily feed an entire family. I think that's why it's quite popular. Not only can it feed a lot of people - it is also quite cheap and also very nutritious! If you're abroad, you can find mung beans either in the Asian section of your grocery or in any Asian store.

Apple-Pumpkin-Pecan Pie



So many desserts to make, too little time. Don't you often get the feeling that there are so many types of desserts or pies that you want to make for Thanksgiving but you simply don't have the time to make each and every one of them? Or perhaps, you are looking at the feast of pies in front of you during Thanksgiving and wish you can try each slice of pumpkin, pecan or apple pie - but feel like it's way too much to eat all three in one go!  I hear ya! I know the feeling!!!

Yummy Cranberry Cheesecake


Last year for the holiday season, I made a No Bake White Chocolate Cranberry Cheesecake as part of the 12 Cakes of December series. I joined 11 other food bloggers and we each took turn to make cakes that we felt best represented the season. I wanted a truly festive and lovely cake so I chose to make a cheesecake with cranberries - since cranberries have a deep red hue which of course is the color of Christmas. Besides, I truly love cheesecake!
