Five Yummy Years

I have been a fan of Yummy magazine since their first issues came out 5 years ago.  As I had shared in my previous Yummy post I shared how this magazine help me cope during a very difficult time in my life.  On their fifth year the team behind this magazine continues to inspire its readers with mouthwatering photos and easy to follow and do recipes.  Here are some of the pages in the March 2012 issues that I have bookmarked. 

Yummy Likes is a recent addition that has become a must read for me

I will be making this for the Little Ones soon

The sweet labuyo chili sauce will be for me

The Yummy pages are always visually appealing 

10 Ideas is one of my favorite things in Yummy, you get 10 food ideas in one page

I miss Divine's "Fresh for Last" however Kristine's "Making It" is also a  wonderful read.  I have always admire Kristine's writing, she was 
a batchmate of mine in highschool.  
I hope that Divine would return to Yummy
so that I could enjoy reading both  her's and Kristine's articles.
Happy 5th Birthday Yummy, looking forward to more delicious cooking and eating  years with you =)

Adobo Rice

As promised here is a new food post, after a long absence.

I have not perfected my adobo cooking skills, however I proud to say I make very good adobo rice = )

When I was young, whenever my Lola Ying made adobo she would make this too. After she took out the cooked adobo from the pan she would stir-fry some day old rice in the same pan.  This way she would get every morsel of adobo from the pan, absolutely nothing is wasted.  The result was a wonderfully delicious rice dish a perfect match for her yummy pork adobo.  In fact I was more excited eating the adobo rice than the adobo itself. In Lola's version she did not have to add anything else except the rice, since her adobo was perfect.  In my version I need to add some minced garlic, salt and a little sugar to make it flavorful.  It does not taste like that of Lola's but I and the Little Ones like it very much.  

Now if only I could finally perfect my adobo dish, so that I can make Lola Ying truly proud.

Thinking Of Having My Own Website

Lst year, about 6 months into blogging I got interested in How To Make A Website but never really got around to giving it much serious thought.  However this year one of the items on my list is to try to earn some extra money from blogging, so I am doing some more research on  making and maintaining my own webstie. 

I am still in the initial stages of my research and planning.  One thing I have learned and quite excited about is  that a blogger you owns a website has many advantages than keeping your blog hosted for free.  Basically owning your website gives you more flexibility with the look and content which translates to more opportunities to earn from blogging. 

Good thing that there is a ton of useful information out there on making your own website, all you really need to do is research.  You can also ask more experienced bloggers for their tips.  I have found the blogger community to be helpful and loves to share their knowledge, this is extremely beneficial for newbies like me.  

So wish me luck in my latest endeavor.

Making Money Thru Blogging

When I started this blog almost a year ago to help me with my recovery from my illness,  I did not know that you can make money by blogging.  It was only last month that I learned How To Make Money online.  

I was so excited to see that there are  so many avenues for you to make money from blogging.  I would like to share with you  the 2 easiest ways to earn:

1. You can monetize your blog by joining GoogleAdsense and other advertiser programs.  You just sign up with them for free and they run ads on your blog.  Apparently once your blog is popular enough you can charge ad space to direct advertisers, giving you a chance to set better rates. Note to self, make this one of my goals for this year.

2. You can write sponsored posts.  This is very simple they give you a topic to write about and you get paid for the post.  This is one exciting avenue that I want to explore more this year.

There are  plenty of other ways to earn from you blog, and even more ways to make money online.  All you really need is to do is a little research to see which avenues will work for you.  Even if you are not a full time blogger I encourage you to explore this opportunity, who doesn't want to earn some extra money, right?  I know I want to so that I can buy the ingredients for all the new recipes I want to try out.  Blogging is a simple, easy, and best of all fun  way to make some money.

Starting A Blog

The first year anniversary of this blog is coming up this month.  I can hardly believe it that its almost been a year since I decided to start blogging.  At that time I was recovering from an illness, I turned to cooking and eventually blogging to help me with my recovery. 

I had no idea how to start blogging I tried to look for information off the Internet but the information out there at the time was not very useful or easy to follow for a newbie like me.  If you are thinking of starting a blog you should check out this helpful link on how to start a blog.    It gives you step-by-step instructions on how to do it and offers some valuable tips.  If you have an existing blog, this is still a good read because who can enhance your blog.  They have the answers to your questions so check them out right now and start blogging. I am sure you will love blogging just as I do.  Happy blogging everyone.
