The Perfect Gift for Your Office

It can be difficult to shop for those who are in your office. Whether you are shopping for administrative assistants or CEOs, you need to consider an appropriate gift. Various executive gift baskets can make it easy for you to get a gift while staying in your price range.

Variety

One of the top reasons that a gift basket makes a perfect gift is because of the variety found inside of it. You may find items ranging from bottles of wine to different types of crackers or cookies. It ensures that the person you are buying for will enjoy at least some of what is inside the basket.

Various Price Ranges

Everyone has a different budget when it comes to shopping for gifts. Executive gift baskets have a broad range in price. This way, you can get smaller gift baskets for some and larger gift baskets for others. You may find that it’s easier to give everyone a gift basket so that you don’t have to shop at a variety of different stores.

Themes

The many gift baskets will have themes. You can choose from candy themes, wine themes, pet themes, coffee themes, and more. This way, as long as you know even a little bit about the recipient, you can be sure to get them a gift basket that they are sure to love. If you don’t know much about them, you can stick with one of the more generic names, offering up a delicious variety of snacks.

Gift baskets are popular for anyone in your office. Plus, many are large enough that they can share with those around them, including family and friends. It will make it easier for you to give gifts throughout the holiday season and all year long.

Bibingka: My fave rice cake

From a previous post. Check it http://www.yamikitchen.com/bibingkinitan/

Magpapasko na naman. Naaamoy niyo na ba ang mga pagkaing mabili tuwing sasapit ang Pasko? Dito sa amin wala pa akong nakikitang nagbebenta ng bibingka. Kung tutuusin available na ito kahit anong panahon nagiging mabili lang tuwing Christmas season. Saan kaya makakabili ng pinakamasarap na bibingka dito sa Quezon City? May alam ba kayo kung saan? 🙂

Pansit Miki Guisado

What did you get your Mom for Mother’s Day? A cake, a bouquet of flowers, or the latest brand of cell phones? Or did you treat your mom to a sumptuous meal in her favorite restaurant.

When I was young, it was my mother who treats us during Mother’s Day. She would cook Pansit Miki or spaghetti and banana cake for the occasion (and for other special family gatherings that require her cooking expertise).

Here’s my simple version of Pansit Miki :

Ingredients:

Miki noodles
Diced tofu
Chopped cabbage
Julienned carrots
Chopped spring Onion
Pepper, Salt
Water

Procedure:

Saute garlic and onion, add in diced tofu. Add ½ cup water and seasoning (salt, pepper), bring to a boil. Add in carrots, miki noodles and chopped cabbage. Stir. Simmer for a few minutes and serve. You can add strips of chicken or diced pork or shrimp. You can pair pansit with fried fish, chicken or pork dish.
