Krissy in the Kitchen

24 November 2013

Aside from frying eggs and bacon, making pancakes, and cooking rice, I never learned how to cook. In the How I Met Your Mother universe, that is my "But umm..." You can ask for my help in your schoolwork or even make me join trivia games, but please don't ask me to cook sinigang or kare-kare for you.

Uhh... No.
When I was still living independently, my roommates cooked for us all the time. And then, when I had to live alone for almost two years, I subsisted entirely on takeout food ( ˘▽˘)っ♨ My old apartment had a spacious kitchen but I didn't have a stove, and instead of groceries and ready-to-cook meals, my kitchen cupboards housed bath and beauty products.

When Maggi contacted me about cooking using Maggi products and writing about it in my blog, I was predisposed to say no. But then, as I am wont to do, I squared my shoulders and said, "Challenge accepted!" Of course I made sure I enlisted my friends' help first ha ha.

A couple of weeks ago, my happily married friends Eric and Erica went with me to wreak havoc in use our friend-who-cooks-so-well Anne's kitchen. Before that, we had a lot of fun choosing the dishes we want to cook for our mini party of five humans (including Anne's boyfriend Chad) and three fat cats. I love Maggi Philippines' website because it's a treasure trove of Maggi Magic Recipe Cards - healthy and easy-to-make recipes you can prepare for your family and friends! Yep, they are all fool-proof even for me. Among all the many choices of recipes available, we decided on these two: Magic Egg, Bacon, and Cheese Cup and Magic Spinach and Mushroom Lasagna.

Disclosure: This is not a paid post. Maggi sent me a gift pack containing their many different products but the money for the ingredients came from my and my friends' pockets.
