Trying Out Easy Quaker Oats Cream Pie Recipe

Trying Out Easy Quaker Oats Cream Pie Recipe


I can say, I grew up with Quaker Oats. We always have Quaker Oats at home. My mom use it for champorado or lugaw. It is a go-to breakfast which is easy to prepare, delicious and healthy. 

When I received a DIY Kit for a Quaker Oats Cream Pie, I was excited to try the recipe that Chef Miko Aspiras has created using Quaker Oats Rolled Oats. First, I haven't baked any pasty/dessert/cake for almost two decades! Second, I was curious how I could enjoy Quaker Oats in different ways - and cookie/dessert seemed like a good start.

Easy U.S. Black-eyed Beans Recipe

If there is any staple food that we have at home, it is got to be sauteed ground pork (or beef). We use it for favorite dishes like Siomai, Lumpiang Shanghai, Picadillo or even for pasta.  We always end up with left over stocked in our fridge. 

I grew up full of reminders from my parents and elders not to waste food. It is reported that one-third of the food produced globally is either lost or wasted every year. In this time of crisis, and COVID-19 pandemic, it is more concerning. I decided to try and re-create a dish using left over Sauteed Ground Pork and incorporate U.S. Black-eyed Beans.

A little surprised to read a baby / mommy - related topic here on my blog?  😀

Let's just say, Tita Talks are real here. Our lives our connected, and when my brother and his wife are not home, my parents and I played the role of the guardian and babysitter for my 1 year old nephew. Yesterday, I got an awesome opportunity to learn more about AIA Philam Life's newest product through Tea Time with the Bolz with Nico Bolzico and Solenn Heussaff. A new medical insurance product is now made available covering kids from 0 to 17 years old.
