Thank you once again Ozeri for letting me expericnce your awesome products! Thanks for the  Ozeri Green Earth Textured Ceramic Nonstick Frying Pan, 100-Percent PTFE and PFOA Free you’ve sent me. It was perfect from what I’ve expected.  DSC_0383

This is my first ever pan with a different look. I am not so good at telling which brand is good or not so I have to really experiment on everything and read reviews about the products. This pan is my 3rd pan along with my other 2 pans with different brands I had. They are all non stick but this is the biggest one and quite deeper pan I had so far. DSC_0392

What I love about it is that I can put it in an oven without burning the handle!  Cool! I haven’t baked using my other pans so I am kind of amazed when I used it. Just be careful when unloading it from our oven, it’s still a little bit hot so use a potholder.

I also love the bottom of it, some of the pans are leaving stains on the beautiful color of the pan, I don’t wanna clean it too much for I dont wanna scratch it but with OZERI you dont have to worry for it’s scratch free!

I am so happy with this product,  love to use it when cooking lomein and fried rice, the size is perfect! Next time will have the smaller size too!!!

This was our lunch last weekend…slices of carrots and celery, baked spicy chicken wings and our all time favorite  – Lumpiang Shanghai or most commonly known as Spring Rolls. I’ve been eating spring rolls my whole life in the Philippines but last year was my first time to make some since I am craving for it, then I realized it’s not that hard to make but a lot of process. Usually if you go to a party, this appetizer is always present! For most of the people this is classified as appetizer but not for most Filipinos like us  coz we love to eat it with steamed or friend rice! Preparing it is a little bit complicated because you have to grind   most ingredients with food processor or blender if no other choice.  Let me try to write my version of recipe for some people that asked for it… IMG_146810333036_633023386789268_374482674_o

Lumpiang Shanghai Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs. ground pork
  • 1/2 cup green onions
  • 1 cup carrots
  • 1 cup onion
  • 1 cup cabbage (optional. I wanted more veggies for my kids thats why I added it.)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoon soysauce
  • 2 teaspoons garlic or garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup parsley, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Lumpia wrapper (you can find it at ACHAU in Rogers or at MANNA ORiental in Springdale)
  • cooking oil

Cooking Procedure

  1. Grind the carrots, onions, cabbage, garlic , parsley  and green onions using food processor one ingredient at a time
  2. Mixed all ingredients in a bowl starting with the onion, carrots, cabbage, green onions, parsley, salt, ground black pepper, garlic powder, and 2 pieces raw egg. Mix well. (You can use 1 raw egg only if you want and use the other one egg for wrapping, but in my case, I used both eggs and I used water to seal the wrapper)
  3. Once all ingredients are mixed, scoop 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoon of our mixture and wrap it with thr lumpia wrapper. (but the large square wrapper instead of the small one. You can wrap it the way i did and cut it after frying in small portions or you can cut the wrappers into 2 triangles and make 2 spring rolls out of it.
  4. Heat the cooking oil in a pan or deep fryer. Deep fry your lumpia until golden brown. Remove from the fryer and put in a paper towel to remove dripping oil.
  5. Transfer to serving plate with Sweet and Sour sauce in a separate saucer and voila! Enjoy your SPRING ROLLS!!!!

You can always leave a comment for questions and suggestions.

NOTE: If you think you cannot finish everything in one meal, don’t fry them all. Just like frozen products we’re buying in store, it can also be stored in freezer and fry it next time you feel like eating Srping rolls again.

Thank you for visiting!!! ENJOY!



I am thinking if I really need to buy a kitchen processor, I love to make shake for my kids but I don’t have it. We have a food processor back in out country I broke it twice. I don’t have any choice but to buy again coz there are no kitchenaid food processor parts sold in any store that time. Food processor is not that expensive so I guess It’s okay to buy a new one than buying a parts and have it fix.  I saw this 2 in 1 food processor for sale online and I wanted to buy it. But since my main objective is to make a fruit shake, just thinking carefully if I really need it or not. A blender or a food processor?

Base on what I read there are top ten ways to use a food processor:

 1. Puréeing Soups and Sauces

2. Preparing Salsas, Pestos, Dips, and Spreads

3. Grinding Meat

4. Grinding Nuts

5. Making Nut Butter

6. Grinding Flour

7. Making Pasta and Pizza Dough

8. Making Homemade Mayonnaise

9. Making Bread Crumbs and Cookie Crumb

10. Shredding Cheese

 

Food processor has plenty of things to do but all I need is to make a shake so I guess buying a food processor is too much. But if they have almost the same price then I’ll go with food processor.
