Wanna share it to your friends….
I am not a Chef but I love cooking! I like to share you guys my winning recipe that I won in a contest two years ago. Yes, you read it right, “I won!” here, I joined a contest before in San Marino Corned Tuna competition and the theme was “Ingenious Recipe”. Well, to tell you the truth… I joined here because aside from making my own healthy recipe, I also truly like to own a mini IPAD, so I tried my best and wishes to win. Then, I made a recipe out of the main ingredient which is the corned tuna with banana blossom. Anyway, this is good for vegetarian lover. Banana Blossom have plenty of health benefits and because of this recipe, luckily, I won! www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10151545208659939&; . I am so proud and so happy to have my own Mini Ipad out of my cooking habits. Thank you!

The photo with plate is mine, that is the photo that I submitted for my entry in their contest. Not bad for a newbie food photographer huh? Eating healthy foods that are good for your heart can also save your life from heart illness.
