There are two traditional feasts that Filipino families often look forward to during Christmastime: the Christmas Eve Noche Buena and the one that follows on the 25th itself, which is often held as part of a festive family reunion. Either way, expect those in charge of preparing the dishes to pull out all the stops to serve the most delectable food on the table for everyone to enjoy.

And if that happens to be you, chances are high that you already have some recipes in mind to make each of these feasts a gastronomic delight to remember. They might even be all-time family favorites or even hand-me-downs from your great-great-grandparents. Having said that, it certainly wouldn’t hurt to learn a few more recipes just to keep things fresh and put something different on the table for Christmas. Two that are guaranteed to make you look like Master Chef are Meatballs in Black Truffle Sauce and Three-Cheese Truffle Macaroni and Cheese.

The recipes are as follows:

Meatballs in Black Truffle Sauce


Ingredients
• 2 slices white bread crusts removed, broken into pieces
• scant 2/3 cup whole milk
• 2 1/4 cups finely minced ground beef (or a mixture of meats, such as pork, chicken, or turkey)
• 1/2 cup meat pâté
• Salt and freshly ground black pepper
• Plain all-purpose flour, for dusting
• Olive oil for frying
FOR THE BLACK TRUFFLE SAUCE
• 1 tablespoon + 2 tsp butter
• A drizzle of olive oil
• 1 bunch spring onions scallions, finely chopped
• 1 carrot finely chopped
• 1 heaped cup button or oyster mushrooms finely chopped
• 3 1/2 tablespoon plain all-purpose flour
• 1/4 cup white wine
• 2 cups beef chicken or vegetable stock
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 1 teaspoon finely chopped rosemary
• 1/2 cup double heavy cream
• 1/2 teaspoon Umbria Black Truffle Sauce


Instructions
1. Place the bread in a bowl and pour over the milk. Set aside to soak.

2. In a separate bowl, mix together the meat and the pâté. Add the soaked bread and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Mix until smooth and well combined. Form meatballs by rolling walnut-sized pieces of the mixture between your hands. They should be about 1oz each. Dust the meatballs in flour.

3. Heat some oil in a shallow pan over medium-high heat and fry the meatballs just until they are golden. Do not overcook at this stage as we are going to finish them in the sauce. Set aside.

4. To make the sauce, heat the butter and olive oil in a pan over medium-low heat and add the finely chopped spring onions, carrot,s and mushrooms. Cook for about 10 minutes, until the onion is transparent. Reduce the temperature to low and add the flour to the pan, stirring with a wooden spoon to make a roux. Cook for about 4 minutes and then add the wine, continuing to stir until you get a paste and the alcohol has evaporated, then add the stock with the salt and rosemary. Keep stirring and cooking until the sauce thickens, then add the cream, stirring so that the mixture doesn’t split or curdle. Add the meatballs to the sauce and cook for a further 5 minutes.

5. Put Umbria Black Truffle Sauce into the sauce, mix and fold and serve hot.

If you're a stay-at-home mother, there must be a mountain of things to do on every day. For one, you have at least one other person you are taking care of. In addition to that is the abundance of house chores that greet you the moment you wake up.

 

Still, despite the busyness and stress of being a mom, many little joys come with the job. One of them is being in the loving company of your family. Another is the relaxing joy of experimenting with new dishes in the kitchen.

 

When the pandemic struck, it became all the more important to pay attention to the things you eat. The immune system is tied to our diets, after all. Unfortunately, it may also be draining your creative cooking juices.

 

One tip for moms who are stuck? Cook more eggplant dishes.

Want to know why some people’s weight loss strategies fail? It’s in the way they eat. Some people neglect to nourish their bodies properly by choosing the wrong diet. Some people don’t plan their diet at all, relying completely on exercise, instead. Others want quick results; so quick that they resort to unhealthy means of shedding weight.
However, one of the secrets to a healthy weight loss is planning what to eat. This is why “meal prepping” has become one of the most-followed weight loss trends.

Shaquille O'Neal has gone from being one of the biggest men in pro sports to being THE biggest pizza spokesman on the planet. Shaquille O'Neal made headlines around the country when it was announced that the former NBA big man and TV analyst was partnering up with Papa John's. Shaq will be incorporated into a string of franchises that seek to utilize the famous Hall of Famer's charisma and athletic past in order to fundamentally redesign operations. Right now, reports are showing that Shaq will become the owner of nine franchises around the country. The first of the pizza franchises to open under the Shaq redesign will be on the Georgia Tech main campus, right near the TNT Studio that Shaq works at for 'Inside the NBA'.

For Shaq, the partnership with the famous pizza chain makes plenty of sense. Since retiring from the NBA, Shaq has been one of the most enterprising athletic entrepreneurs in the world. Outside of his work on television and in Hollywood, Shaq has been nearly prolific with his investments. Shaq is already the owner of a Krispy Kreme Doughnuts shop in Atlanta as well as 27 Five Guys locations throughout the country. Shaq is also the owner and founder of a Las Vegas chicken-themed restaurant known as Big Chicken. Shaq also has several major endorsements including a partnership with National General Insurance, Carnival Cruise Lines, and even the medical balm, Icy Hot.


How would you like it if investors had such trust in a company that you had built that they decided to put a collective $50 million dollars of their own money into its operations? That is exactly what has happened with the company known as Talkspace.

You may have heard of this brand as it has been around for the last seven years. They are the company that decided that they wanted to change the way that we all receive our mental healthcare. The biggest way for them to take a chance with this was to provide that healthcare in a way that was not commercially available up to that point. Their big idea was to provide these services over the Internet.

Nothing starts our day right better than a cup of Joe in the early morning. Coffee culture is and will always be centered on the idea of starting the day with a delicious cup of hot coffee. Throughout the years, coffee culture has evolved beyond its distinct taste, aroma and energy-boosting capacities. Thanks for brands like Organo Gold, coffee is not just a drink we’ve all come to love. It has become a drink that has become an essential part of our lives.

Organo Gold is one of the caffeine products that is changing the coffee culture one step at a time. The product goes beyond traditional coffee beans at it adds fungus to the mix. In hindsight, each pack of Organo Gold is made of 100% Arabica coffee and Organic Ganoderma Lucidum. The resulting drink is a regular coffee that comes packed with other essential benefits.

Not everyone is a brilliant cook but even if you aren’t a whizz in the kitchen, you can still convince your friends that you’re a gourmet chef if you follow these top tips!

1.Preparing Raw Onions
If you’ve ever made a salad with raw onions and thought they tasted too pungent, no problem. Fill a bowl with cold water and soak them first before slicing and you’ll discover their odor and flavour isn’t so overwhelming.

2.Seriously Impressive Coffee
If your friends are just popping around for a coffee, impress them with a barista style coffee made with a sprinkling of cinnamon and just a tiny pinch of salt. Add before you brew your coffee grounds and you’ll find that your coffee not only isn’t bitter but is actually amazing. Also, if you invest in a milk frother, you’ll achieve the true coffee shop look when you serve a brew. You can find more details on this link about how to choose the right one for you.

3.Banish Bland Vegetables
If you hate the boring taste of boiled vegetables, try cooking with stock instead of plain water. You’ll be amazed by how much richness and flavor you’ll taste.

4.Forget Table Salt
Table salt is a useful addition, but kosher salt is even better. As it’s less processed it has larger crystals and is flakier than regular salt. This makes it a lot simpler to control the amount you aadd to your food.

5.Make Your Meat Tender
Tenderizing your meat can be a pain, but if you use the velveting method even the toughest steak will suddenly be silky and moist. Coat the slices of meat in egg whites and cornstarch then add a dash of rice wine to really bring out the flavor.

It’s just a mixture of gin and tonic, right? Wrong. There are plenty of dos and don’ts when it comes to making this delicious and refreshing summer staple drink, so before you even think of throwing an outdoor party or make a drink for yourself after a long day at the office, take the time to learn a thing or two about mixing and matching, because believe it or not, making this drink is an art form in its own right.

When we think about changing our eating habits, we usually think of the foods that we should eat less of or avoid completely, like processed meats and artificial sweeteners. What most of us don’t realize is that it is equally important to consider what we should eat more of to get the nutrients we need.

One such food that should be included in a healthy diet is the cashew nut. In the old days, the fruit was given more importance over the nut. The juice was consumed both as medicine and beverage, while the flesh and oil were used for various cooking purposes. Indeed, in Brazil where the plant originated, cashew fruit juice is highly popular and more people prefer eating the “apple” to the nut.

Looking after your family’s health, and your own, is inarguably hugely important and something you should be primarily focused on up keeping and improving continuously. Keeping you and your family in the best possible health needn’t be difficult nor strenuous once you know exactly how to do so, and you understand the ways in which you can benefit from investing in your health. Often the problem in starting to implement a new healthy living routine is that the plans initially laid down are too ambitious and they fall flat before even taking off from the ground. While still in its infancy, the route towards getting you and your family in peak health should climb to the top in a steady and sustainable fashion, so this means not going cold turkey, so to speak, straight off the bat. With this talk of food and exercise, it’s about time the topic of keeping you and your family healthy is tackled and explained.
