Home-Cooked Meals with Knorr #LutongNanay

Posted on

I’ve been trying to cook more often and so far it’s been great. I’ve had some dishes that have been more successful than others and I get inspired to try more dishes when my kids ask me to cook them again. That’s why I couldn’t pass up the chance to learn some home-cooked meals from Knorr.

Knorr held a #LutongNanay event at The Cookery Place in BGC, Taguig for mommy bloggers of Mommy Bloggers Philippines. The #LutongNanay campaign is on its third year and aims to promote home cooked meals for the Filipino family.

“Our goal is to bring back the value behind home cooked meals especially since people choose to eat outside or even alone in this fast-paced world. Knorr aims to help more moms bring the family together through the best flavors in their cooking.” said Knorr’s Brand Manager for Bouillon and Seasonings, Dhiren Karnani.

Louise Fandino-Santos, a Knorr Mom and fellow mommy blogger, hosted the event.

We were grouped and given a special sinigang recipe to recreate. We were tasked to cook Knorr Sinigang with Pakwan (recipe below). My group included Joy (joygurtiza.com), Erica (stuckwith3.com) and Lani (tweenselmom.com).

I’ve been hearing about Sinigang na Pakwan and was eager to try cooking this. Surprisingly, the watermelon doesn’t mash or melt while cooking.

The Sinigang na Pakwan was just the right amount of sour and sweet. I’m sure my kids will like it and I’m giving this a try at home real soon.

I looked for my dream Lego set, the Harry Potter series. I learned though that those sets were no longer available and that there were many people also looking for the same Lego sets.

I would love to have the Harry Potter Lego sets but after perusing the store I also saw so many more sets to choose from.

The BGC branch being the flagship store has many sections and carries all original and licensed toys. If you’re looking for quality toys that are both unique and authentic Hobbes and Landes is the best place to look.
