By Juvy S. Iliwiliw

Years after I first learned to make them as a child, I still enjoy making brownies. They can be made in a snap, I always have the ingredients on hand, and best of all, even dessert aficionados still rave about them!

Since  I work with so many recipes I usually have to consult my notes when I want to cook something. Not so with brownies - I can recite the list of ingredients from memory anytime!

Imagine a very colorful treat right your very eyes. The beautiful colors illuminated in your mind and you can't hardly control the wanting for it. It could be your rainbow cookies freshly baked from the oven that still spreads the delightful aroma to your senses. Each colored cookie has its own flavor and decorative edge and you can barely wait for that chance to grab all the colors to paint your hungry world.

Refrigerator cookies are made of cookie dough that is shaped into logs, chilled until firm, and sliced before baking. The great thing about them is that you can keep the unbaked logs from days to weeks in your refrigerator and even months in your freezer. Then just slice and bake when you need them.

I accidentally created this ginger thins recipe when, making a regular batch of refrigerator cookies, I mistook a jar of dried instant salabat (ginger tea) for brown sugar! Realizing my error before I mixed all the powdered ginger into the dough, I removed as much as I could and proceeded with the recipe. The result was a cookie with a spicy flavor, just like gingersnaps! If you like gingersnaps, you'll love this.

Oatmeal Bread

My sister just can't get rid of her cravings for sweets. It was really in her to munch something sweet almost everyday. A very sinful habit she wants to let go but just can't find the easiest way out. Sweets are just as tempting to eat as to see. She would sometimes turn her head away from looking it but she still struggles to forget it in her mind. One day, she has become so unstable that the doctor insisted on stopping her eating habit just that. She can't stand it at first but with her determination and lots of courage, she was able to do it sweetly. She manages her diet well and even substituting a whole lot of healthy options for her once awful eating habit.

Now, this is her oatmeal bread that says, "if you don't want to give something that's sweet, why not a healthy loaf of bread?" It is like satisfying yourself without having to worry about becoming unhealthy again.

I first tasted this sweet bread that's served in Germany at Christmastime when my aunt baked and gave us a loaf as a gift, and have loved it ever since. It has almonds, lemon peel and candied fruit. Try giving it in place of fruitcake some time.

In my hurry world, I always lost track of the hour especially when the work has to get done. This has been my life for years being part of the educational world. There are needs to be met both the students and administrators. I usually leave early for work and come home very late because of work again. My loving mother would always remind me of eating but when she's tired of reminding me about it, she just simply put crackers to my spacious shoulder bag. So, every time my stomach feels like crying because of hunger, there is always cracker ready for me to munch. And they are just bought crackers by mother that I may not even welcome its taste sometimes.

This has went on for years and I am just getting used to both the skipping of meals and the crackers. Until I finally decided to try making my own crackers at home so mother won't have to buy every time. These crackers I will share with you are good for snacks by themselves or with dips. The recipe is super easy!

These are easy to make with packaged frozen puff pastry. As a cheaper alternative, use pie pastry. I used to make this for myself whenever I craved something hot and cheesy! They are fine at room temperature but you can also heat them in a toaster oven before eating.

Give this trendy flatbread by itself or as an accompaniment to dips and spreads. Focaccia can be eaten alone  but it is best if its eaten together with your homemade spreads, it would enhance the look of your flatbread as much as it enhances the flavor. We often resort to making this flatbread when we feel like being idle on an evening with my family just sitting there watching movies we like while feeling the taste of focaccia on every bite. My family will always enjoy its flavor enhanced with another dish.

This is another version of something I came across at a food fair. The bread rolls are sold only partially baked, and you complete the cooking process in your toaster oven. Neat! Stuff the rolls with ham and cheese, corned beef, cooked ground beef or anything else you fancy. There seems to be a lot of filling to choose from, well, sky's the limit to your imagination with this stuffed bread rolls. Nothing feels good more than this, to be part of cooking your own meal.

Here's a novelty food gift that will surprise your friends - someone might have thought of this after seeing all those bean soup mixes in the U.S. Frankly, it doesn't taste as good as monggo guisado from scratch, but it's fun to make and give. Look in the big supermarkets for the seasonings used here. With the right ingredients comes out the right taste and just the right flavor for your guisado.

Siopao is surprisingly easy to make that's why it's a regular part of the curriculum of my nieces' cooking classes for the past five years. Long ago, we would occasionally receive small bamboo steamers filled with frozen miniature duck-filled siopao for Christmas. The beauty of frozen siopao is that you steam it only when you're ready to eat it. This recipe and suggestion for packaging borrows from that idea.

I used to occasionally see deboned chicken in the supermakets. If you have a source for deboned chicken, or know how to debone one yourself, this makes an easy, elegant gift because the stuffing calls for simply mixing all the ingredients together. To make this into a perfect gift for an occasion, wrap the entire basket in sinamay and tie opening with a colorful bow. Attach gift tag or label.

Green tea health benefits will be significantly enhanced when blended with lemon juice. In order to comprehend this theory, let's first analyze the importance of food combination.

Most nutrition experts will likely agree that blending food can harm or benefit a person's health condition. Most people experiencing acid reflux after a buffet may blame the amount of food, however in most instances bad food mixing is the contributing factor. For example, combining melon with another food is a bad combination.

This is much easier to make than its cousin, the chicken galantina, unless you are able to find whole chickens already deboned. Embutido will be good as your main dish even more it could be served hot or cold on the table. Because of the elongated shape of the embutido, you can wrap it up to look like a giant candy. Wrap the foil-enclosed embutido with colored cellophane and tie both ends with ribbon. You can then attach a gift tag or label. Now you are ready to share your embutido wrapped or unwrapped with your friends.

If you like the gourmet tuyo that is available in supermarkets, here's a very easy way to make your own. You will notice that even for the first time you will serve this to your friends, they will immediately say they would order if you care to sell it! For gourmet tuyo that's not spicy, just omit chilies.

Bake these small chicken pies in disposable aluminum pans. These are good for busy single people who have the option to heat just one dish at a time. You can also bake your pastel in one large pan instead of many small ones. For a really special gift, use a ceramic baking dish and the container itself becomes a more permanent gift.

Mexican salsas are uncooked combinations of tomatoes, herbs and chilies that make a great dip for tortillas and even potato chips. They need to be consumed fairly quickly, but I include a couple of recipes here because I think they make an interesting gift. You can package the salsa and chips together for a gift that's also an instant snack.

Pasta Sauces

Here's a gift idea: why not package together a jar of pasta sauce, some dried pasta and maybe even a package of focaccia and give to a friend who has no time to cook. No time or has time to cook friends will never neglect to appreciate your generosity if you will wrap them with your own homemade flavors. Hope these recipes will make a good stuff inside those shiny wrappers.

Green tea extract benefits can be significantly increased if lemon juice is added. In order to understand this principle, one must first explore the importance of food combination.

A lot of diet experts will certainly agree that combining food can negatively or positively impact a person's physical condition. Someone who is in discomfort with heartburn following a buffet may blame the unlimited food, however in some cases poor food mixing is the contributing reason. For example, combining melon with any other food is a bad combination.

Several coffee makers blend a mixture of the cheaper priced Robusta beans together with the more expensive Arabica gourmet coffee beans. The Arabica beans possess a finer odor, a more potent flavour and more body compared to the less expensive coffee beans.

The quality of the coffee is dependent on the proportions of the combination of these types of beans. In many cases a coffee might be advertised as a combination of gourmet beans and lower grade beans while in fact there are just small strains of the gourmet beans within the mixture.

Champagne is a beverage that can turn a simple celebration into something elegant and classy. That is because the thought of champagne is commonly associated with wealth and high standard. Champagne is no doubt a popular drink during celebrations, and that is why many people have entered the business of champagne making. Unfortunately, there are also fake or poorly made champagnes on the market, because some try to imitate genuine brands illegally.

Whenever we are talking about unwanted effects regarding pills, we should pay close attention to the amount we intake. Numerous negative effects are directly associated to the amount you intake and tea is not an exception.

Although it comes from coffee beans, it's not the same as drinking your usual cup of java, as this supplement is made from raw coffee beans rather than roasted ones. Green coffee beans thus have nutritional properties that have been found to help in weight loss. Let's take a look at how you can lose weight with the help of this extract.

Salad dressings don't have a long shelf life, but they make an interesting gift packaged with, say, a head of lettuce and a few nice red tomatoes. Your recipient will have to make use of both the dressing and the greens fairly quickly. Don't shop for your salad fixings at the supermarket: visit an organic or regular market for fresher and cheaper produce!

Flavored Honey

Look for local honey sold on the roadsides when you go out of town and use that for this recipe. Local honey is not only fresher, but also cheaper than imported honey from the supermarket. You can find pots of sage and thyme fairly easily at the many organic markets that have sprung up all over the city.

By Juvy S. Iliwiliw

These are fun and easy to make. Simply combine softened butter (not margarine) with a variety of flavorings that turn them into sweet or savory spreads. Sweet spreads are good on sweet breads, waffles and pancakes, while savory spreads are good on slices of French bread, steaks and freshly cooked vegetables including boiled corn. Whipping the butter first increases its volume and makes it both lighter and easier to spread.

The best way to package these butters is in little crocks; look for inexpensive pieces of ceramic factory outlets like Cardinal Ceramics. Add a tag with a suggested use of recipe.

The bhut jolokia or the ghost chili pepper is known to be the spiciest of all peppers in the entire world.

Herbed Olive Oil

By Juvy S. Iliwiliw

Olive oil with different herbs and spices steeped in it turns into a unique condiment perfect for serving with breads. It may also be used in your favorite recipes to add a flavorful twist!



A word of caution, though: there are unsafe ways of making flavored oil, and you need to be very careful to prevent food poisoning (including botulism). The main thing to remember is that adding any substance containing water - and these would include garlic, fresh herbs and spices, fresh peppers or citrus peels - to the oil can create a breeding ground for harmful bacteria. Commercial preparations of flavored oil either preserve the fresh or water-containing ingredients they add or press the oil directly with the flavoring ingredients.

Flavored oils should be kept refrigerated, and to ensure this, the bottle you put them in should carry this reminder on labels that cannot be easily removed. Since it might be difficult to make sure that the flavored oil is consumed by your recipient within a week, the only recipe I am suggesting makes use of dried herbs and peppercorns. The flavor may not be as intense but, again, better safe than sorry!

Most likely you are familiar with the Chinese stating, "Firewood, rice, oil, salt, sauce, vinegar, and tea are the seven necessities to begin a day." Though tea is last on the list, we can still see exactly how crucial the tea is for the Chinese.

There are in fact hundreds of Chinese tea varieties. These are usually classified by treatment, quality, and preparation approaches and so on. However, if we will certainly consider tea in regards to quality, there are in fact eight classes of Chinese tea. These include green tea, oolong, black, red, white, yellow, flower, and compressed tea.

You'll get more for your money quantity wise, and the cheese will be fresher than anything you can find in the supermarkets. Tip: In Lumban, Laguna buy your kesong puti in the morning from the market. In Sta. Cruz, Laguna look for roadside stalls advertising the stuff. Avoid buying from individuals peddling the kesong puti on foot; the cheese may already be old and shrunken.

It is nearly time for families to uncover the grill and fire up the barbecue, sending the tantalizing fragrance out to neighbors.

Regardless of the occasion, the family will be glad that the BBQ is again ready to make delicious meals.

Custard-Filled Angel Food Cake with Meringue Frosting and Cherries

Here's a lovely cake, one that will look queenly and elegant on the holiday table yet is easy on the tummy. Custard-filled angel food cake with meringue frosting and cherries has a superbly moist and light body, with a wonderful texture that simply melts in the mouth.

The snowy white frosting makes an elegant background for the bright red, stemmed cherries, the swirls of cherry syrup sauce, tiny sprigs of mint leaves, and the shiny little balls of gold and silver dregees. Best of all, since only egg whites and no yolks are used for the cake, you'll find comfort in knowing that it's low-cholesterol dessert (you can use the egg yolks to make leche flan or eggnog).

Chicken Pie

By Juvy S. Iliwiliw

     We often hear people ask this when they find themselves in difficult situations. But in reality, we do always have choice.
     That's probably one of the best things about being alive, here and now: the freedom to choose what you want to do. Now we live in a world that offers many options. Be a doctor or a painter? Be both! Can't catch your favorite TV shows? But the DVD. Don't want to walk to where you're going? Take a train, bus, taxi, jeepney, or pedicab, take your pick! These days, it is ALL about choice.
     They say that a man is measured not by what he wants to be, but what he chooses to be; the decisions that he makes in life. This is especially true when it comes to health. Living a healthy and active lifestyle is all about making choices that fit your needs and wants. And it's not complicated either. It actually involves three key values that anyone, no matter who or where they, are can can easily do. These values are having a balanced diet, always being active and proper hydration. You can choose to live a healthier and more active lifestyle. You can live your life the way you want to, with balance and without compromises.
     If you are healthy, you can never say no to anything you are craving for in your food. I hope you are healthy enough to freely have a big bite of this chicken pie.

Pieces of beach glass or driftwood would also work.
