A New Batch Of Goodies From Joe & Cherry Just Arrived!

food, food online, food musings

I really loved what I ordered from Joe & Cherry the last time so I decided to order a couple of more items for their July shipping. It sure took a little while for the items to arrive since they will be shipped from the US, but it sure is worth the wait. I ordered a number of items this time around, including the well-talked about Cocoa Almond Spread together with a few more items and the Katella Bagel Chips, which I am most excited about! I cannot wait to know how this one will taste. Just the mention of bagel and Parmesan is making my mouth water!

Oh well, it is a good thing I do not have to wait for much longer as my orders just recently arrived! I cannot wait to sample each of them + I will let you know how my gastronomic adventure goes. 😉

If you would like to order Trader’s Joe and other imported delicious goodies, do not forget to check out Joe & Cherry, one of the owners is a friend of mine. And did I mention I am about to place my next order as soon as I am done reading all about these awesome silver maple leaf from Canada? 😉

a very simple mac n’ cheese recipe

mum cooks, recipe

I am a big fan of Mac N’ Cheese and will not miss the chance of ordering a serving whenever we visit Kenny Rogers. I also used to like the ones they serve at Chansel, yes that pizza chain, we used to frequent their Starmall branch in Mandaluyong. Now as much as I would like to cook my own recipe, you are fully aware that I lack the culinary skills to whip up a delicious version so I decide not to. Until I chanced upon this very simple recipe from the Peach Kitchen, which I thought was easy enough to do.

For the ingredients, I used:

  • about 300g of macaroni small shells, which I cooked according to packaging instructions
  • 2 200g pack Del Monte Cheese Magic
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 cup of fresh milk
  • 2 tbsp butter

This is how I cook it:

  • heat butter in a non-stick pan
  • sauté butter until brown
  • pour in Cheese Magic and milk
  • put on low fire and stir in cheese until until it melts
  • add the macaroni shells and mix until all the shells are coated with sauce

Easy enough, right? I bet you can easily cook it in your own kitchen. My sister and I loved it, but the little man refused to even take a bite. Next time I will try to add in a few broccoli florets, as well as some meat bits so Jared will find it more appealing as much as a remo kids percussion konga at musician’s friend. I will also use a different kind of macaroni shells.
