“What’s up, Doc?”, is a casual catchphrase usually being said by Bugs Bunny while standing and chewing a CARROT.
When I was young, my mother would always tell us that we should be eating carrots, they help prevent cancer. Food on our tables with carrots are Pork Relleno, Chicken Pork Afritada, Soups and Salads. Carrots are typical ingredient in our dishes but unlike Bugs, I don’t find chewing a carrot my snack.
Anyway, here is my carrot bar recipe. I got this recipe a year ago from my Tita Beaulah, and had the step by step procedure over the phone. It is the simplest baked goody I usually do as a treat to my friends during birthdays and get-togethers
2 large eggs
¾ vegetable oil
1 cup brown sugar
2 cups flour
½ tsp. salt
1 tbsp. cinnamon
1 tbsp baking powder
1 cup grated carrots
¼ cup raisins
½ cup chopped peanuts, unsalted
Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
Beat eggs, oil and sugar. Set aside.
Sift together flour, salt, cinnamon, baking powder, and add to egg mixture.
Mix well. Add carrots, nuts and raisins.
Pour in batter in a greased pan.
Bake for 25 minutes.
Let it cool for a while and slice according to desired size of bars.
It is a sweet and mellow bread but not as fragile as the carrot cake which is always with icing or cream frosting. It is quicker and better for moms who are always running out of time, just like me.

hi! my name is nez.
i am a mother of my 3 year old son, colby, who is extremely fidgety, always on the game and very choosy with his food to eat. i am always on the experiment of foods to give him. he loves the taste of pasta, pizza, anything that has tomatoes. he is not into sweets, no ice creams, no cakes. he loves veggies which i am so very well pleased. he doesnt like meats except for fish meat like bangus, tilapia, tanguigue, blue marlin and the like. he is into junk foods. i cant blame him for we, royce and i, are into chips and snacks.
i am the wife of royce, an entrepreneur, who is very loving, patient, has a passion to achieve his goals. he loves to eat, does experiments, always tries new restos, new food offers. he is not into sweets either. he would rather have a full meal than having small snacks.
as a couple, royce and i love to eat out especially if we get tired and stressed from the day’s work. when at home, i just prepare simple food on our table but make sure something special during weekends. i get my recipes from the trainings i had from programs our church offers, i am a Latter-day Saint by the way www.lds.org and also from the mothers who i love especially their cooking. i usually browse the net for new recipes like www.pinoycook.net, whom i got the inspiration of creating my own food blog, cooks.com, kitchenomics.com and many more.
i want to share my experiences in eating, cooking, baking, which i know, i am not a pro but just by creating this blog and making myself be read, i hope to give an inspiration to those who wanted to travel with me in journey of living with food with families and friends.
