Corn Muffins ala Kenny Rogers Roasters
Sep 3rd, 2012 by niceyfemme

I’ve been having way too much cravings recently now that I am near my due date much more than when I was in my first trimester when I just couldn’t eat. I’ve been trying and rediscovering different foods. One time I ate in Kenny Rogers because I wanted spaghetti but I am sick of Jollibee’s spaghetti which was my go to spaghetti. I ordered a combo meal which came with the muffin and to my delight, it was the muffin that I enjoyed the most and not the spaghetti which disappointed me a bit. There was a time in college when I loved Kenny Rogers’ corn muffin but through the years the quality has declined but now I find myself enjoying it again. Oh can I say that I miss their blueberry muffin as well?

So I made a mental note to try to bake a corn muffin that taste like theirs and buy corn meal. Problem is corn meal isn’t available in the supermarket where there’s one everywhere. I bought a box before in Trinoma and so when I found myself in the area I just had to buy a box asap. (BTW can I just say that in all the malls in the Philippines, Trinoma has the most expensive parking fee I have encountered. Grrrr)

I found two seemingly alike recipes online. Read the rest of this entry »

Steak with Veggie Salad
Jul 6th, 2010 by niceyfemme

So this is what I had for lunch today. Inspired by a dinner last week with Mommy in Kenny Rogers Roasters where we ordered Honey Bourbon Ribs and All Vegetable Salad… One of the most satisfying meals recently. Maybe because I’ve been eating egg and egg and egg for quite a while now. Variety really is the spice of life.

This is the photo from Kenny’s website. Hmmmn I have to say that it looks bigger in the photo haha!

One thing Mommy and I both agreed on was that the ribs tasted like tinapa! I guess it’s not a bad thing since that flavor is the smoky flavor I like.

I forgot to take photos of that satisfying meal. Hmmp! I remembered to take when there was only a couple bite’s left in our plates. And I left the camera in the car.

We headed out to the supermarket to buy veggies and meats to replicate that meal. Lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, corn, carrots, croutons…. I’m not sure which BBQ marinade is best so I tried my luck with this brand.

Kenny Roger’s Roasters is baaackkkk!
Sep 11th, 2009 by niceyfemme

They never left. I know.

But the quality of food did die for some time.

See Kenny’s (my term of endearment for them hhehe) was my favorite way back in 2003. I love their muffin, their spicy roasted chicken and java rice. My bestfriend and I always ate there when we were still in college.

Then the food I loved changed. Quality that is.

Muffin didnt taste as good, java rice seems like they just used some kind of food color in it and too few pimiento bits. So not my favorite anymore.

Then a few months ago, fire happened in Kenny Roger’s in SM Bacoor.

They undergo major renovation.

Took them months to finish.

What a nice surprise when they opened!

So spacious! so nice! I was tempted to try them again.

So me and my mom did last night…
