Quick and Easy Burger Steak

Instead of buying ready-made burger patties, it is more fun making your own burger because you can add different spices and herbs. All you have to do is mix them all up then fry or grill. I'm going to share this quick and easy burger steak recipe that is also easy on the pocket, which is perfect for busy moms like me. 


1/2 kilo of lean ground beef
1 big white onion (minced)
1 egg
spring onions (minced)
1/2 cup bread crumbs
salt and pepper
1 pack of instant mushroom gravy sauce


1. Combine the ground beef, white onion, spring onions, and egg in a bowl. Mix all the ingredients then season with salt and pepper. Add the bread crumbs but make sure to check the consistency of the mixture. It should not be too dry nor too sticky. Shape them into patties by rolling a small amount of the beef mixture on your hands and pressing them on your palm.
2. Fry the burgers over medium heat or you can grill them too (which is healthier). Put the fried burgers on a paper towel to drain out excess oil.
3. To make the sauce, just follow the directions written on the instant gravy mix. Pour the sauce over the cooked burgers. You can top that with cooked mushrooms or fried garlic bits. 
4. Serve the burger steak with rice or mashed potato and buttered corn so kids will enjoy their meal.

MyHealth Clinic Takes Care of My Health

Getting sick is a real pain in the *** but to wait for a long queue in discomfort and end up with a list of expensive medicines to  buy would definitely make anyone feel more sick! I was glad I have a health card from work so that lessens my worry about the check up and laboratory expenses. I usually go to Medical City Clinic in Trinoma and Waltermart for the check-up but my experience there was not really that good especially in Waltermart, Munoz. The nurses there and attendants seem so laid back (which is a better term for being lazy) and busy chatting with each other. I waited for a long time (around 30 min.) just to have my Maxicare approved and after that I went to the nurse's station to give my papers but the girl was busy on her phone so the guy beside her placed my paper on her table and told me to wait for my name to be called. So I waited for my name to be called and it was almost an hour. I was really wondering why it would take that long just to have my blood extracted…

Ampalaya (Bitter Melon) Salad

Ampalaya (Eng: bitter melon)is hated by many because of its bitter taste. It is rare to find a kid eating ampalaya and even only a few adults would dare ate this vegetable. I think the first time I ate ampalaya was in grade school when we were asked by our teacher to eat it since it signifies the bitter herb mentioned in the Bible. Now that I am all grown up and enjoy eating all kinds of food, I happen to love ampalaya. My former colleague brought ampalaya salad  at work and it was good! You won't taste its bitternes so I asked her how she did it. I made it at home and mom liked it, but my sister did not because she said it was still bitter. FAIL! 
As years go by, I think I have finally perfected making the not-so-bitter Ampalaya (Bitter Melon) Salad. I am going to share this to those who love this green veggie and the first-timers who dare to taste it.

Easy Beef Sukiyaki Recipe

I love Japanese food and one of my fave meals is Sukiyaki. My mom spent a lot of time making that dish when we were little so I thought it was difficult to make.
