Simple Basic Crepe Recipe

Simple Basic Crepe Recipe

Preparation time: 30 minutes


1 cup all-purpose flour
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter, melted


Add all ingredients to list. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour
and the eggs. Gradually add in the milk and water, stirring to combine. Add
the salt and butter; beat until smooth.

Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or
scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each
crepe. Tilt the pan with a circular motion so that the batter coats the surface

Cook the crepe for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is light brown.
Loosen with a spatula, turn and cook the other side. Serve hot.

Dress it up with Nutella and fresh fruits.

Whats in my Medicine Go To Bag ?

Boo Boo Go Away

As a mother of 4 children, I constantly worry about what I do not have in my diaper bag.  I am always known to always carry a big bag.  I carry almost everything in my bag.  With 4 children and I am always on the go, I must must have all items handy.  This is where I play a magnificent Doctor role.  

My motto "You can never be prepared for anything, but at least you can always try to beat the unexpected things and make them better".

So my usual travel make up bag is now replaced by "medicine go to bag".

Whats in my "Mommy's  Medicine Go To bag"?  All these items are over the counter.   

- Benadryll (allergy relief)
- Advil Childrens Tylenol (fever & pain)
- Tylenol Cough and Cold
- Gravol for kids (for nausea)
- Orajel (for teething)
- Thermometer (2)
- Manzanilla oil / Chamomile Oil (for abdominal pain gas relief)
-Alcamporado oil (generally used in the Philippines) - Extract Camphor Oil (to numb sprains)
- Syringe (2) 
- Eye drops (pink eye)
- Eye ointment 
- Vitamin E Oil 
- Nasal Aspirator 
- Vicks Baby Rub
- Sunscreen lotion
- Bioderm Ointment / Polysporin (to prevent any infection)

- travel size baby powder, shampoo, lotion
- Cotton balls, cotton swabs
- Baby nail cutter, baby file and baby scissors
- Extra roll up of garbage bags (for wet clothes or vomits)

The most important stuff of all are our family records.  I keep all the children's immunization records, health cards and write down all medical information about them.

Have fun creating your own Medicine Go To Bag.

Simple Banana Bread Recipe

Simple Banana Bread Recipe

Preparation time: 1. 5 hour
  •  3 - 4 very ripe, peeled bananas
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cup of all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup of melted unsalted butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • pinch of salt
Substitute Baking Tip:  (if you do not have baking soda, you can substitute baking powder but double the volume)


Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C), and butter a 4x8-inch loaf pan.  Spray the loaf pan with baking oil spray or grease the loaf pan with butter.

In a mixing bowl, mash the ripe bananas with a fork until smooth. Stir the melted butter into the mashed bananas.

Mix in the baking soda and salt. Stir in the sugar, beaten egg, and vanilla extract. Mix in the flour.

Pour the batter into your prepared greased up loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes (check at 50 minutes) at 350°F (175°C), or until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean.

Remove from oven and cool completely on a rack. Remove the banana bread from the pan. Slice and serve. (A bread knife helps to make slices that aren't crumbly.)

Taa daa..... Enjoy

Meet the Mom behind this blog

I am starting this personal blog to express my opinions, beliefs, and to share all of my amazing experiences and at the same time cry out for help.  That being said,  please note that any of the topics you read in here does not come from an expert.  I can only share with my readers what I know and what worked for me.  I believe that everyone should follow their own instincts as a parent and find out what works for them.

My name is Kim and I am a mom of 4 to 2 beautiful girls and to 2 handsome identical twin boys.  I was born in the Philippines but raised in Canada at a young age.  I am married to a Canadian born Latino man of a Guatemalan descent. My life is a product of a beautiful interracial marriage.  My children are  therefore (half Guatemaltecos and half Filipinos).  

My blogs will consist of many topics.  Topics of which are all about learning and growing as a person both physically and mentally.   I will incorporate my thoughts about love and my faith with God.  I will also share a few good laughs when it comes to my perfect imperfections.  

My objective is to share and to inspire.  To live life day by day and find strength to breath and enjoy what life has to offer.  To learn and grow physically and mentally in the eyes of our innocent children and in the eyes of our "wiser" parents.  To laugh every moment at every chance you get.  But most of all to love unconditionally with no regrets.

As I always remind my children " Sharing is caring - carebears".  Embark with me on a journey to living, learning, laughing and loving.  Enjoy my blogs.
