As a mom, you'll never be perfect, but you can give your very best to your children. - Anonymous 

Being a mom does not come with a manual. You learn as you go and make the most of what you have, with the end goal of having a happy, healthy, and functional family.

I’m the designated cook and it’s my responsibility to prepare delicious dishes that will nourish the family. When you have kids at home, it’s important that the food they eat gives them the energy they need to sustain their activities throughout the day.

This pandemic helped me re-evaluate the food I prep for the fam. With our children in distant learning and us busy working from home, I have to plan our meals ahead. I also have to be creative, while also keeping the budget in check.

Home-cooked meals are still the best. That said, I’m sharing a recipe that we now consider as one of our favorite snacks in-between meals. Oh, and did I mention it’s a veggie? Yep! Since I always experiment in the kitchen, I thought of a new way to cook… potatoes!  

My fambam loves potatoes! Ang dami pwedeng gawin sa patatas. From snack to main dish, we can always rely on potatoes to create easy and yummy recipes.

The potato is highly nutritious, too. It contains many important nutrients vital for health, including vitamin C (27 mg) and plant-based protein (3 g), which is more protein than other commonly consumed vegetables. It is also a source of nutrient-dense complex carbohydrates (the good carbs!), fat-free, cholesterol-free, and sodium-free, and has only 110 calories per serving (148 g).

If you're looking for a new potato dish, why don't you give this a try?  This is so easy to make, and you don’t even need an oven. Check out my recipe for U.S. Potato Cheesy Bread.


For the Bread:

  • ¾ cups bread flour
  • ¼ cup whole milk
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter, melted

For the Potato Filling:

  • 1 cup of U.S. standard potato flakes
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp parsley, finely chopped
  • ½ cup mozzarella, grated
  • salsa for dip (optional)


  1. Mix well the bread flour, milk, and butter to create the dough. 
  2. Set aside.Mix the potato flakes, salt and pepper, mayonnaise, and parsley.
  3. Knead and flatten the dough with a rolling pin to create a pizza-like form.
  4. Put mozzarella in the center of your pizza-like dough, then spread the potato filling, and the mozzarella.
  5. Cover the top by folding the edge of your pizza-like dough.
  6. In a pan, cook in medium heat until the dough turns brown.
  7. Serve and enjoy! You can also serve with salsa dip.

So easy! So good! It’s a healthy and filling snack for the kids, too.
