Sponsored Video | Knorr's Flavour of Home.

Ever since we were kids, my siblings and I would always look forward to the summer season with eager anticipation. Aside from the fact that we're on a school break during the months of April and May, it's also that time of the year when Mum usually comes home for her annual vacay. (She's a cardiology nurse in London who officially became a British citizen three years ago.)
London calling. :)
And for us, Mum's vacation would mean lots of pasalubong, shopping trips, videoke nights, weekends at the beach, and home-cooked meals everyday! My Mum makes the most awesome kare-kare (a traditional Filipino ox tail stew in a thick peanut-based sauce) in the world, and I'm pretty sure my brother and sister would agree with me on this one. Sure, my Mum taught me how to cook this dish, but I can never ever replicate the taste of her kare-kare. It's true what they say - nothing beats your mum's cooking!
Just another weekend at the beach.
In a research conducted by Knorr, results show that regardless of how much time passed, many of us still find our mother's cooking to be the greatest flavor on earth, and how these flavors can make people happy, feel comforted, and be reminded of loving childhood memories.

These sentiments are echoed in this short film, which celebrates a mother's love, the taste of home, and the power of flavor. Dubbed as 'Flavour of Home', this heart-warming film by Knorr tells the story of Carmen - a husky safari guide who works in the Arctic - and her mom, who traveled more than a thousand miles just to surprise her with a wonderful, home-cooked meal.

This video tugged at my heart and made me miss my Mum - and her cooking - all the more! We all can't wait for her to come home this May!

How about you, which of your mom's dishes do you love or miss the most? :)

I have always loved my mom's own version of Adobo. Actually, there's nothing really that special in it, but I got used to her cooking na parang it's filled with so much love na that's the taste I crave and look for when I eat Adobo. :)

It's true, nothing beats my moms cooking. I make the same recipes and mine doesn't even come close.

Growing up, my mom made the best biscuits from scratch anyone could ever make. Once we all married and moved out, she quit making them and I really miss them. She doesn't like to cook and I never realized that as a child. So we all cook for her :)>
