Gotta-taste Ingredients

Great stuff to try!

LB Maple Treat Maple Butter lends a richer flavour to your pancakes, poached fruit sauces and daily toasted bread! You'll want more than one bottle of this!

Precious Green Tea Milk Spread by O'sulloc! Great with soft and hot bread rolls. I have tried it on a hot pan de sal, raisin bread and brioche roll--you can finish a bottle in one sitting.

This stuff is great! I couldn't believe that you just need a teaspoon of this to make a cup of matcha green tea latte . So potent!

Trader Joe's Cocoa Almond Spread is super good on pancakes! Aside from this, I also use Goya's Hazelnut Spread and Nutella on my pancakes.

My sister sent this container of Trader Joe's Matcha Green Tea Latte Mix. I used it in making some delicious and moist muffins (Match Green Tea Muffins) and vowed to make some more the next day!

I used this Magnolia pancake and waffle mix to make some delicious, tasty and easy crepes! 

I love this RED LOBSTER Cheddar Bay Biscuit Mix! The biscuits are just as tasty as the ones they serve in the restaurant!
 I tried the lotus biscuit (middle) spread to make some cookies and I really loved the taste--not-so-sweet cookies that's perfect with a cup freshly brewed coffee! I used the 3 spreads (above)combined together, dark choco dreams, lotus biscuit spread and american maid peanut butter, to make more cookies and everyone loved them! I used 1/3 cup of each spread.
I used 1/2 cup of this Mezzetta bottle in my Muffaletta Sandwich and it really made a lot of difference! This has just become a staple in my fridge.

'Just bought this olive oil based mayo! Great for my tuna spread and spinach dip!
'Made some oatmeal muffins with this quaker oatmeal muffin mix! I love it 'coz it makes such moist muffins! I added some rolled oats and pili nut crumble on top for some texture! 'Will buy this again!
'Got a pack of these toffee bits, Heath, and made some delicious cookies! A bite into the cookie will make you just love its crunchiness(from the toffee bits) and chewiness(cookie dough) at the same time!

I bought this Pumpkin Pound Cake mix specifically to have a fuss-free Thanksgiving dessert. I baked this and coupled it with canned peaches, vanilla ice cream and some whipped cream! 'Will definitely do it again!
This soup mix by Lipton surely completed the taste of my slow-cooker beef stew! 'Got to stock up on this!

 We enjoyed this Chili Con Carne with some Tortilla Chips and Cheddar cheese! The Ultimate Sunday food! I used McCormick's Seasoning Mix and made this dish in no time!

I love trying out new stuff like this raspberry flavored wine vinegar. I♥ it with my salad!

Who can't resist a Buy1-Take 1 offer for Betty Crocker's Low Fat Fudge Brownie?! Not me! I used one of the boxes this week to make my brownies with Snickers slices on top! The caramel in the Snickers added some more gooey-ness to the brownies! I ate it, again, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream(not in photo)!

Finally got to taste cardamom! I have seen this spice in a number of baked good recipes so it has made me wonder how it tastes. Luckily, I was given these Belvita waffle-cookies with cardamom spice. Cardamom for me is a bit ginger-y and minty at the same time. Enjoyed it with my favorite green tea.Unfortunately, it is not so common in this part of the world.

I had a good experience using this Pure Agave Sweetener in my peanut butter cookies. 'Will be using it in my next baking escapades!

Since I was craving for some Southern food, I got this Gumbo Box from the nearby supermarket and made my very own Gumbo with smoked sausage! Tasted like the real thing! Thumbs-up for Zatarain's Gumbo Mix!

Another quick dessert! No-bake-just assemble Rum Mamon Kiwi Dessert! I bought 3 pieces of Marby Mamon (sponge cake) for this dessert. I just made a quick rum sauce for this: 1/4 cup butter,1/8 cup water 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/4 cup rum. Mix all ingredients in a saucepan and boil! Spoon sauce over the mamon and let it soak for 15 minutes or more. Eat this with some sliced kiwis just to lessen the guilt!!?
No-bake-just-assemble TV Night dessert! My own version of Strawberry Trifle! I just bought one slice of Goldilocks Butter Cake(divided it into 2), a box of fresh strawberries and whipping cream. Voila! My very own super delicious strawberry trifle!
Can't help but show-off this precious plate, handpainted by the late mother of my husband!

I enjoyed this Southwestern Cornbread of Marie Callender's from S&R! I served this with meatloaf and a bowl of salad. For the next day, I kept to the southern theme serving this with Blackened Tilapia and coleslaw!
I always use the Minute Tapioca from Kraft for my pudding. It has never failed me!The pure vanilla extract from Papua New Guinea simply adds that much needed spark in all of my desserts! I wish this could be available locally.
 A definite staple in my pantry!! Aside from waking ME up, it definitely wakes up the flavors in any dish!  The Delimondo Chili and Garlic Drizzling Oil is a treaure found in the Saturday Salcedo Market. I also use this on my siomai.  The Trappey's Bull Hot Sauce is a great find by my husband just at Landmark Supermarket.  Great on fish cakes!! Hope you'll enjoy this 2 sauces too!

I got this from Landmark Supermarket! It really made my dish taste authentic! Made my meal preparation easy-peasy!
Jackpot finds!! The Ortega Hot Taco Sauce really brought LIFE to my Tuna Tacos!! I was so happy when I saw these whole-wheat tortillas because the whole wheat version added some 'rustic' taste to my tacos!
This is a really Authentic Roti!  The onion flavored Roti is to die for! You can also get the whole meal version or the plain one. You can find this at the frozen section of any big groceries. I have tried eating it with curry and beef stew---and, it is really very tasty!

 Won't get tired of Adobo! I just got this pack of ready-made pork adobo flakes from S&R Supermarket and prepared it for supper!! For my husband, I fried 2 eggs, made adobo garlic rice with some of the adobo flakes and heated the adobo flakes.  Super Comfort Food!

 I just cooked Pancit Lomi (follow link using Veggie Plus Pancit Bato this time from Declaro and it turned out great! I'll definitely do this again! Trying to hit 2 birds with one stone--malunggay-enriched pasta! Why not?!
