DIY Thanksgiving Buffet Table – Free Printables

The Thanksgiving table can get very crowded.  What with the turkey, side dishes, gravy, and sauces, there's no place for anyone to actually sit down and eat!

Depending on the space you have and the number of guests you are expecting this could take some doing. You might consider setting up different stations or bars; appetizer, sides, desserts, and ...

Beef Afritada Recipe!!!

Beef afritada is a variation of the popular Chicken Afritada which is a basic Filipino tomato based chicken stew. Instead of chicken, you use beef. Basic ingredients include potatoes, carrots, and tomatoes. Unlike Chicken Afritada the only drawback about using beef is the time it takes to prepare.  Basically it takes longer for beef to become tender than chicken or pork.  So most of the time is spent continuously cooking the beef in medium heat until it becomes tender. I highly recommend ...

Halloween is a time for kids, costumes, candies, and fun.  But who says it's just for kids?  Halloween is loved by the big kids too!  Adults love to dress up and act silly too!  And we certainly enjoy the treats too!  My favorites are those bite sized chocolate bars, specially Snickers!  But if that spooky caldron  of Halloween Hawaiian Punch doesn't quite do it for you, or you're looking for something a bit boozy here are some fun Halloween Cocktails for you! So get out your shakers ...
