Holiday Magic – Main Street at Disneyland


I hope this post will get you into the Christmas spirit….. Let the {holiday} memories begin. Being surrounded by so many Christmas lights can cheer me up any day. I’m feeling the holiday magic very early this year.  I’ve been feeling it since mid-November. I can’t help it. Do you remember how Christmas makes you […]

That Is All


After Christmas, I purposely did not make any plans so I can have some downtime. A much needed downtime. I’ve spent a few days like no other days during the year. Just relaxing. Relaxing like staying in my pajamas all day, eating my meals in my pajamas all day and watching movies in my pajamas all day. […]

Christmas Day


After my family’s Christmas Eve party, I woke up early on Christmas Day ready to greet the day :)   I was the first one to wake up. So I made a pot of coffee and sat down near the fireplace and just relaxed. Ahhhhh, I love the smell of Christmas and being surrounded by […]

The Joy of Christmas


It is our family’s tradition to celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve. ‘Twas the night before Christmas, our families gathered to celebrate together. With food a plenty… like traditional food such as whole roasted pig (lechon) and noodles (pancit palabok)   and of course desserts.   We had some healthy snacks too. I ate my heart out […]

Candy Cane Lane

Feel The Burn + Sugar Cookies


It was raining all night last night and all day today. It was really cozy inside the house and the perfect day for baking :) I was planning to eat breakfast burrito today but since I woke up with rain outside, I did a switcheroo and ate my usual breakfast lately, protein oatmeal with melted peanut […]

The One with all the cookies


I love Fridays, I’m always in a good mood. The hot Christmas weather is now gone and has been replaced with cold and rainy mornings. Today’s early drive to the gym required a thick hoodie and gloves. Yes, the temperature is around mid-40s (and some of you might say it’s ONLY 40s) but that is […]

Toasted Coconut Chocolate Chunk Cookies


I love baking. Whenever I am in the kitchen baking, I go to my relaxing place, where I have the music in the background and I breathe the sweet aroma swirling around me. I bake all year long. But throughout the year, I bake mostly healthy treats like batches of snack bars here and there, […]

Hello again


Well hello again, it has been awhile. I have been busy the last several days spending time with family and friends, and taking care of family matters. But the calm is here and my schedule has finally slowed down. I think this is longest time I’ve disconnected from my computer, which at times can be […]
