Food Trip Friday: Alaskan Crab Leg

Last week, I told my hubby that I have been craving for seafood. So, he said that he'll take me to a seafood restaurant next day. On the way to the resto, we stooped by at Kroger to get some yogurt. We didn't know that they have a great sale on crab legs for $3.99 a pound; so instead of going out to eat, we bought two pounds of it and hubby lets me feast on it. Wow, that was yummy. Here is the picture of it after I steamed it.

Dermajuv, Best Skin Care Products!

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Dermajuv Skin Care Products. All opinions are 100% mine.

I must admit, I am not getting any younger. Anymore. And if I don't take care of my skin, who would. After neglecting of my skin for a little while, I decided to check on it and was very surprised to see a tiny wrinkles on both sides of my eyes. So, immediately, I open my drawer, picked the moisturizer and put fair amount of skin care products on my face and around my eyes particularly. After few days, it disappeared! Amazing, isn't it!?

Talking about skin care products, there are many of them being launched in the market today, that is why we need to be careful when it comes to choosing one that works for us...meaning effective, and safe. Ingredients and science behind skin care products makes these skin care products more effective in combating signs of aging such as wrinkles.


Dermajuv, is one of the best product that does miracle cosmeceuticals for beautiful skin. All their products are 100% paraben free. What I really like about them is that they never hide their ingredients because they believe that users have the right to know everything and what they are paying for. So, if you are looking for skin care product you can trust when it comes to you skin, you should visit their website for more info.

A Cooking Class For Hubby and I...!?

You Should Get a Couples Cooking Class

The only thing you want this Valentine's Day is more quality time with your sweetheart. It's as simple as that.

You'd trade all the chocolates and stuffed animals in the world to have a cozy, romantic experience together.

A couples cooking class, or a couples "anything" really, is the perfect gift for you this year.

Not only does it show that your partner cares, it shows that he or she also wants to go forward together.

What Valentine's Day Gift Should You Get?

Matt and I can cook, but not an expert of it. But the result on this test sounds like we don't know how to cook :-(. This is not right because so far, we love each other's foods and my in-laws are always happy with the foods we cook for them :-).

Otap from a Good Friend, Dhemz!

Yesterday, I got this package from Dhemz. author of My Life's Perception and Inspiration. An Otap all the way from Cebu! I am so lucky to have Dhemz as one of my best blogger friends. She is indeed a very nice and thoughtful person that is why she is love by many of her friends and I am one of them :-); anyway, I want to thank you, Dhemz for this sweet gift you sent me. I love and missed you dear Sissy!

Otap is an oval biscuit made of flour, sugar, shortening and the ever reliable coconut. Sprinkled with sugar, a careless bite of this fragile biscuit would send fragments of it flying to the floor. But it is not as scary as it sounds; though one have to admit that eating otap is an art by itself. Little children are often told to be careful when eating it, they are supposed to put one hand under their chin to catch the sugar and fragments that might break off from its thin mass. Even adults have to master the art themselves; careful to inhale a little at every bite to ensure no bits of sugar goes astray. The use of the other hand still proves useful at times, if only to avoid the ants from feasting upon the fragments on the floor; which would be a waste of treat. That, my friends, makes eating otap one adventurous eating experience.

Sunday Stealing: The Pretentious Blogging Meme 2

A note from Judd...

Hi everyone and welcome to this year's Super Sunday Stealing! Today our meme originated from TWO sources. When I edited last week's meme, most questions were multiple questions. So I separated them. It was suppose to be an 18 question meme. When I realized that 7 questions were missing, it was too late. At least a dozen people had already done the meme. So the first questions today are from the meme we stole from Little Bark from the blog

The Tree Unleashed
. Last week a player, Going Like Sixty added questions of his own and invited us to use them this week. So we took the questions that I didn't published (Boy, was Bud pissed! Only joking...) and most of Sixty's questions and we now have part two of a 25 question meme. If you missed last week, here's your chance to do a two for one!

Cheers to all of us thieves!

Food Trip Friday: Baked Chicken Thighs

This is one of my family's fave recipe for chicken. My son loves the skin because it is crispy and the fats are gone. Hubby likes the taste of dill weed in it. I like it because it is still moist inside. It is very easy to make and the ingredients are already in your fridge and pantry. If you do have: dill weed, salt, pepper, lemon or lime, then you can make it. All you have to do is sprinkle the rest of the ingredients and then squeeze lime/lemon on top of chicken. Bake uncover for 45 minutes on 350 degrees and then, enjoy!
