Portobello & Basil Cheese Tortellini

My husband loves pasta. I love pasta too but I think not as much as him. There are pastas that doesn't appeal to my palate maybe because they aren't sweet. I like them a little sweet.

But when my friend offered to share a pasta recipe that she found online and tried, I didn't have second thoughts at all. I love mushrooms so the name certainly sounded delicious to me. And when I showed the recipe to the husband, he was more than excited to shop for the ingredients. We both haven't tried the dish yet and we are always willing to try new dishes. That's how adventurous we are when it comes to food.

The husband chose the flavor of the Tortellini which was the tomato and basil. He also chose to be colorful and chose the ones that had color. Look how colorful it is in the photo.

And tell you what. Without a doubt, it was so delicious both the husband and I were happy campers. The little one who can be picky at times also liked it but wasn't crazy about it like us.

Have you tried this dish before? If not yet, go check some recipes online. If you want the recipe that I used, just let me know and I'll be glad to share it with you.

Seafood Medley Alfredo

Gourmet dining straight from the what the hubs called it.

I'm not a big fan of TV dinners or frozen dinners/foods, and the hubby certainly knows that. I've always been a lover of home-cooked meals and that's why I prepare home-cooked meals as much as I could. I don't consider myself an excellent cook, but I do love to cook. 

There are times though that I prefer to be lazy and eat simple - most especially during the weekend when my boys are here. We want to spend as much quality time together so that is when frozen dinners come in.

We grabbed this one night at the grocery store that we frequent. Both the husband and I love seafood so we chose this one. It was good, but I wasn't crazy about it. The good thing was, it was easy to fix and was ready in a sec. Still a good meal for those lazy nights.

With Forgetnic, You Won't Forget to Protect Yourself

With online security breachs and the online hacking that big companies have experienced recently, it is for sure internet users should worry. And now, these big companies are investing on security not only to protect themselves but their consumers as well. And for us who also invested on security for our personal computers, I think it is already a given that we can't help but worry too because these hackers manage to get into“secure” protected connections. Although we don't have millions of dollars like major corporations, we still do have our identity to protect. An identity that could be stolen and used to destroy our financial security which is really scary to comtemplate.

Thanks to, their secure email service is certainly one thing that would at least take some worry out of our life. Their goal is to provide us with security starting with our email. Email is one among the most sought after modes of communication now and in it we share certain facts and important information which could actually be viewed and stolen by hackers. doesn't only offer secure email, they have more than that. You might as well visit their website to learn more if your online security and secrecy is one of the goals that you intend to focus on .

Steak Gyros

Our Friday nights are usually what we call "quick-fix" dinner no-cooking night. Hubby was the one who thought of it. I think he got tired of eating my home-cooked meals for days that's why he wanted something different for the end of the week. But he told me he wanted to give me a day-off. Really now? Nice way of saying it, huh? LOL.

Anywho, he was craving for a Greek food one Friday evening. There is a Greek restaurant about half a mile from our house so off we went and this was what he got - steak gyros.

It was delicious, but it was his dinner so I only had a bite. Me and my son chose to have Chinese food.

Sounds Greek to you? Certainly "looks Greek" to me. (",)

Though Separated By Miles, We're Still Together

My sister celebrated her 44th birthday today and, more than anything, I was drooling over the food and the cake (Like how my husband looks like when he looks at those p90 guitar pickups online. You bet, he does drool over those things). And that's only by looking at the pictures that my Aunt posted on Facebook. That's all I could do because being in her party is impossible for us (the hubs, the little one and I) because we are thousand of miles away from her.

This has been the fourth year that we missed her birthday celebration. Same with the rest of the family's birthdays. Thanks to Facebook, at least I get to see the happenings. And even though I only see the photos, I still feel like I was there celebrating with them. Not to mention, eating and enjoying the food with them too. Heehee.

Well, she still has more birthdays to come and I know we will get to celebrate more of those with her eventually. I do believe!
