I discovered a new, easy and delicious recipe last Christmas. Our company’s christmas party was held at La Quinta Hotel. Everybody brought something, ofcourse I didn’t cook so I just bought disposable utensils while others brought different specialty of their own. Don’t ask me how they taste like coz it didn’t stick in my mind tastebuds. What caught my attention was the Sopapilla Cheesecake. One of my close friend/ co-worker made it so I asked the recipe right that moment!


My first Sopapilla Cheesecake

Here is the recipe my friend wrote for me:


– 1 (8 oz) packages of cream cheese (softened)

– 1 and 3/4 cup of sugar

– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

– 1 (8 oz) cans of refrigirated original crescent rolls

– 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

– 1/2 cup butter (room temperature)

1/4 cup honey


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F then prepare 9×13  inch baking dish with cooking spray

2. Prepare the Cream Cheeese Mixture – Beat the cream chesse with 1 cup of sugar and vanilla extract in a bowl until smooth, set aside.

3. Prepare the Butter Mix – Stir 3/4 cup sugar, cinnamon and butter , set aside

4. Prepare the Cake – Unroll the cans of crescent dough, use a rolling pin or just press it into the bottom of your pan/baking dish,  spread the creamcheese mixture on top evenly then cover with the remaining crescent roll. Dot the butter mix on top of the cheesecake.

5. Bake in the preheated oven for  30 minutes or until the crescent dough has puffed and turned golden brown. Remove from the oven after and drizzle with honey. Cool pan then cut into squares.

I hope you like it like I do. Serve it warm, ENJOY!

Tip:  Store left overs in the refrigerator. Heat in an oven for 8-10 seconds and serve!

Riding a horse is one of the best activities a family could have during family day. And so, it is really nice to get along with our family in an activity that both of you would have fun and enjoy the rest of the day together. Isn’t that great that you don’t just have fun but of course, you have learned a lot about the said activity too-  on why do we need to wear outfits like jodhpurs jodhpurs instead of ordinary pants and so much more?  Thus, it does not just bring fun and enjoyment to your family but as well, it teaches us a lesson too.

It’s Ber Month! I can feel Christmas coming. Well it’s good to plan early for Christmas shopping to avoid the rush. Creating a list of what to buy is the first thing to do. Gift giving is the first in my list next to food list. For this year I’m planning of giving ferds childrens clothing and toys for my nephews and nieces. They are located at the other side of the world and rarely see them now so I just did an research on what would be the latest trend for kids nowadays. Good thing I mostly have nieces so it’s easier for me to shop but the problem is that I am a little bit outdated with what’s new in the market. Thanks to online shopping aside from  I don’t have go through the long lines, I can able to see all the latest  and the best part of it, it will be delivered!

Celebrating with family is indeed the best bonding we could have, thus planning a party in every occasion is the best thing we could do. Preparing foods is not that hard to handle though, because with just one call to catering equipment supplier then you can present all the foods the way you wanted it to be and of course, the program too. In every event, there’s always a program that flows. But what matter the most is that either it is celebrated in simple or in an elegant way either with music used korg triton le or not, you and your family is celebrating that very important occasion in your life together.

The kids enjoyed Easter Egg hunt adventure in our friend’s house last Easter Sunday. We had our simple celebration with Ihaw-ihaw  (grilled) foods, play time in their backyard, easter egg hunt and egg decorating.

 Before we had lunch, the kids enjoyed the new trampoline our friend got in their backyard.  They loved it and even asking if can buy it too aside from the patio swing that they keep on asking us to buy. Unfortunately we can’t have this stuff until we got our own house in the future.

After playing we had feast on the Ihaw-ihaw foods…

Grilled Liempo, Grilled Fish and Chicken, fresh fruits and veggies :)

And finally, EGG HUNT and EGG Decorating time!!

HAPPY EASTER everyone!

Another marvelous and amazing cake made by our friend of A Lot of Sugar. I requested a Cars Lightning McQueen a month before my son’s birthday and she just said OKAY and viola, look at this perfect CARS she made!

My son loved it so much that he doesn’t even wanna slice it ….

Ate some of the icing….

And then ask me to keep it… he doesn’t want it to be sliced 🙁

And finally after 4 days….he let us eat it!

In my other blog, I posted about how I would have wanted to attend a costume party as a leather-clad biker girl. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen last year. So I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I’d be able to attend one this year. If I get to attend one in November and I can’t wear my leather jacket, then perhaps I would just get myself a Joe Rocket Ballistic Jacket. I have no idea why I’m posting a fashion idea on my food blog, but to tell you the truth, this fun idea entered my mind as I was looking for new recipes to cook for my family. Now that’s what I call multitasking.
