Have a great day folks! How's your weather in there? As of this time and yesterday, the weather here in this side city of ours is certainly hot and humid. But I couldn't complain for more. This is what our weather supposedly and I am embracing it. What I just do to combat this humidity aside from air conditioning stuff or fan, is drinking a lot of liquid. Yes, a lot of water usually cold water and stuffs like ice cream, ice drop, juice, fruits or just anything that is cold. Just lately, I had this thought of making some avocado stuff which ended as my own recipe.

Yep, my own recipe which I called it as "Iced avocado with ice cream". I had a rip avocado which was ready to turn into something, either with my simple mix of condensed milk and mashed it all together with cubes of ice on it or with my thought of such what the title can tell. :) An ice cream adds flavor with it. My taste buds craved for an ice cream so I just put it altogether instead of eating one by one with all the sweetness of them. So I just did what my usual process was which is to mash the avocado with a spoon and put some condensed milk (only this time condensed milk is lesser) then put my favorite "rocky road" (flavor of ice cream) at the top. Then done! And here's another one..

And.. time for chow time! ;-)

By the way, how you like your avocado to be eaten? Can you share your secret?

banana peanut salad

How is everyone this weekend? I hope you guys are enjoying bonding with your family in there. Mine is pretty okay though it is still raining over here until now. The good thing is I have not heard major damages aside from minor floods in the road and peeps who want to have a walk cannot do such. Anyway, would you care to prepare my own banana salad recipe? This is just a simple and out of my curiosity as well on experimenting my recent craved peanuts in a fruit salad. Usually I put peanuts on maja blanca dessert only and some on vegetable salads. So I thought of putting it in one of my top fruit of my choice which is banana. It is done just like fresh or canned fruits salad. The procedure is so easy as 1-2-3! (1) I just slice the banana fruit into small slices, (2) then I put nestle cream and condensed milk (you can substitute nestle cream and condensed milk with evaporated milk or fresh milk if you wish too; that's what I did when I run out of such), (3)then put peanuts (or you can add too whole kernel corn with it if you like corns), and done! It is good when it is cold, you may feel like put ice or put in the fridge before eating. It is easy, isn't it? Have a happy dessert eating with sprite without caffeine. Have a nice day and TGIW (Thanks God It's Weekend)... (~_~)

Nobody beats fresh fruit salad but I don't have that much but I had canned so what I did was I just combined the two to attained what I wanted to or should I say I could have fresh too---knowing that a canned fruit cocktail is enough to make a salad. :-) So I drained the canned fruit cocktail to separate the juice and the fruits. I also had a can of whole kernel corn and drained as well. While those canned fruits draining, I peeled red apple and so the green ones but then I thought that it would be nice that the skin would be left on (for some other apple) for colorful purposes. So that's what I did. Some cut apples were skin peeled off and some don't. I also cut fresh ripe banana. Then opened the small canned nestle cream and condense milk, prepare two to three tablespoons peanuts. Yes, I put peanuts. You can lessen or add more if you like. I then mix all the ingredients (drained small can fruit cocktail, small can whole kernel corn, cut peeled and skinned red & green apple, small can nestle cream, two to three tablespoons of condense milk, two to three tablespoons peanuts) and done! I let it cool first (I put in freezer for two minutes and transfer down after) then serve! It's eating time... :-)

sweetened root crops

I thought of cooking a dessert made of purplish taro root after I saw that I could put some ice on it and eat it cold. I usually eat this dessert on warm so, I decided to try it out. I was in the middle on my journey on making it, but then it turned out that the liquid (a little water part from boiling the taro root and a can of 400 mL coconut milk) was more than what was for the content. So I twist it into sweetened root crops. I add another taro root, potato, yellow squash, a can of jack fruit (more than the size of the coconut milk, and of course more granulated/white sugar. What I did was stopped the stove and peeled the root crops and boiled until half cook then put it into the stopped cook supposedly-sweetened taro root. By the way, I cut the jack fruits from the can into thin strips. To continue, I then together put the strips of jack fruits into the mixed root crops. After that, add sugar and boiled again. And done!
I tell you I made 6 servings! Yep, and because DH don't like to eat root crops, I was only the one devouring it. It was good for days of consumption for me. It was okay because it is good if it is cold. I put ice on it and it is yumm-o! By the way, I also called this as "root crops in coconut milk or not-so-binignit"

It was two weeks ago when I felt like eating young coconut meat but then I saw only a can of coconut strips at the storage. It was not intended for fruit salad but for the cassava cake but since I did not have some other ingredients for the cassava cake and I liked to eat with the young coconut strips , I just grabbed then the young coconut strings in a can and strained. I also strained the fruit salad so the juice and the fruits separate each other. Then as I thought that there's no watery stuffs, I mixed the coconut strings to the fruit cocktail. I don't have nestle cream and I didn't even like to put milk on it since the young coconut strings are sweet. The nestle cream is the other ingredient that I didn't have this fruit salad journey. (~_~) What I did was I put some little amount of water and strained to get rid of the sweetness. And that's it, after strained, done! And the above image is the result. (~_~) Well, this is the other recipe of fruit salad with my initiative.. :-) My other fruit salad recipe is here . Happy eating! (~_~)

*** {click to enlarge images-- never mind the date of d bottom pics- cam's date was late 4 days} ***

Okay, it's been a week or two already that I wanna make a mango and am glad finally I made it yesterday. I was just been so very busy for the past months and weeks that it's just recently I got a break to do some desert and kitchen cooking. Hubby and me mostly bought foods outside to give in our eating need, see how busy we were? Hemmm... Yep! But as I said I got a break now so I will be back cooking because mostly my beauty will be at the house already -- no more school for the summer so, am happy about it. By the way, here is the recipe of my own mango float version (fresh from my kitchen, this would yield a medium rectangular-shaped pyrex):


  • 4-6  pieces big ripe mangoes
  • 1 small condensed milk (227 g)
  • 1 small nestle cream (227 g)
  • 1 small bag of graham crackers (or any biscuit similar)
  • 1 small bag of crushed graham (optional, since you can make crushed graham but crushing the graham crackers yourself but that requires work, it's your choice)


  1. 1. Mix one small can of condensed milk and nestle cream in a bowl. 
  2.  2. Peel off the mangoes skin then after it's peeled off, cut the mangoes as your desired shapes. I like mine in chunks, I just only cut the whole mangoes twice, so one slice in one side and one slice in the other side, or, four slices (as in two slices in the one side and two slices in the other side as well). It's your choice,  your style. You are the master of your own creation.
    3. Then, put graham crackers first (serve as a thick side on on the very deep part so it's strong enough to hold if you're going to get it already to serve. After putting the graham crackers, put the mangoes.

    4. Put the mixture of milk and nestle cream at the top of the sliced mangoes.
  3. 5. Repeat the steps 1-4 until the container or pyrex ware for the desert full. Once done, put it in the freezer (yes, freeze it). You also need a sharp cake knife to cut before serving. By the way, it's also better to cut it into bite pieces before serving. So that's it, ready to eat after freezing overnight (I usually done it at night time)! Enjoy! :)

  { * Note: It's either your choice if you put the mangoes on top the crushed graham as seen in the picture. And let your imagination do on decorating the top using the mangoes. But I'll give you a tip. If you do the mangoes the last, make it sure you will going to consume it in one sitting, if not, just then cover the mangoes with crushed graham because the mangoes will going to discolor if not eaten right away fresh from the freezer.*}

Pretty easy, right? Why not try it for yourself? (~_~)

The fruit salad recipe which am about to share with you folks is my own version of making it. Actually, I got an idea of my fifth top woman of m y life which is my aunt-in-law Aunt Winnie of which she's fond of making desserts and am just adding my own version of it. Did you remember our school class event potluck folks? This is the food that I brought back of that time back then... Am glad my classmates liked it. As you can see below, it's just simple to do that's why that's what I did. (lol). By the way, here's the recipe:


6 cans
27 oz (766 g) fruit cocktail
1 can whole kernel corn
1/ 4 size of big green watermelon
1 1/2 pouch 10 oz (297 g) of colorful marshmallow

2 cans 400 ml nestle cream

1 can 14 oz (396 g) of condensed milk

Procedure (below):

  1. Get ready all the stuffs needed to use like container mixing and for the end product, strainer, can opener, and knife and chopping board for the watermelon.
  2. Open all the cans and set aside.
  3. Sift all the fruit cocktail in cans and put in container mixer.
  4. While fruit cocktails are into sifting, cut and slice watermelon as like to the size of fruit cocktail.
  5. After all the sifting and cutting, mix all the other ingredients to the sifted fruit cocktail and done! Put it in refrigerator to cool it off.

Happy eating folks !
