Vegan Chocolate Bundt Cake

December 19, 2013

I love to bake. I bake 1-2 times a week and our cookie jar is rarely empty. So, for my son’s 2nd birthday I originally wanted to make a watermelon cake, but (duh!) watermelon isn’t in season. So I opted for a chocolate vegan bundt cake. It was very easy to make and only took me an hour. Ingredients: 2 cups flour 1 cup sugar 2 teaspoons baking soda 1 tablespoon corn starch 1/3 cup cocoa 1/2 teaspoon salt 1.5…

4 words I will Never Use.

November 25, 2013

There are certain terms I rarely use in my vocabulary that has been used a lot lately via comments on my Facebook page and website. While I am often portrayed as uncompassionate by viewers, personal friends and family members know I am highly sensitive and very direct.  I don’t view life with negative lenses, I see how people react as a reflection in how they see themselves or what they are intimately experiencing in their own life. Since my influence…

The 5 issues with America Today

November 5, 2013

I’m alive! After the onslaught of last week’s media blitz and feeling like a punching bag from commenters, emailers and news/talk show hosts (won’t say who) I feel like I can still smile knowing that the many who got my message, truly received it. I do have to admit though. I have looked at this man to my right and asked “what is going on?” a few times. (thanks hunny for your support) Here’s what I believe is going on:…

Blueberry Muffins

August 25, 2013

Nearly every Sunday morning I look at my leftover fruits from the week and try to make use of them. This week I am left with an abundance of blueberries as my husband went a little wacky when he shopped at Costco the other day and bought 3 organic containers of blueberries! Unfortunately, it was very sour and the boys (and me) didn’t enjoy it very much. For those who follow my Instagram (@mariakangfitness)  you know I’m not particular about…

Clean Eating: Chicken Adobo

August 21, 2013

My family loves my version of healthy chicken adobo. This is a Filipino favorite that is usually made with chicken thighs and legs, served over a generous portion of white rice because the soy sauce and vinegar makes the dish so salty!   I actually don’t make a lot of Filipino Food (as there is a lot of  pork, frying and sauces…3 things I’m not a fan of)  but my family loves this. When I was younger I loved to…
