  1. Hi and thanks for the feedack. The only way I can recreate the problem is if I used simple dictionary words. If I used obscure letters and numbers, though, I can create a password with 12 characters (which is the minimum character length). I tested this in FF, Chrome and Edge. Dont know about others. The e-commerce software I use, just had an update not long ago and password enforcement was a change mentioned. Thanks again for the heads up, though. Will code in a message on the registration page about minimum PW requirements.
  2. Hi. Thanks for the message. I will check on that immediately. The image is not clear.. Does that show that it's telling you to enter a stronger password? Thanks again.
  3. Hmmm.. sounds good. Will go to S&R later and see if they have some Kirkland Mayo. That's not bad, and will save me having to make. Thanks for the heads up!
  4. If you're ever down the Davao way, look me up will cook some more chicken and have a couple of brews!
  5. Bacon-wrapped barbecue chicken. Made with Lil' Jessie's Kickass BBQ Sauce!
  6. I love everything you mentioned! I have tried to make minestrone a few times, and it wasn't terrible.. but nothing to write home about. I maka a pretty mean lasagna and my gumbo is pretty darned good. if I do say so myself. bread.. blah. i can make pretty good biscuits, but my other breads are just okay.
  7. Yeah, I have tried those Mission flour tortillas. They're not too bad.
  8. I usually can find dry pinto beans at SM supermarket. They USUALLY have pintos, white beans and red beans. They're not too bad. I don't know if it's a Davao thing or if they're available everywhere. I make the flour tortillas also. Kids love 'em.
  9. Smoked fish sounds good. Never tried it, though. Time to Google it I suppose.
  10. While I was reading Jollygoodfellow's post on finding good ham, it got me to thinking about all the foods/food products that I used to take for granted when living in the States. I hadn't really thought about it too much. I had a few small restaurants back in the day so cooking has always come easy for me. Still, I make a lot of things here simply because I can't find sources here or the products that are here are really expensive. So... my question is. What do you now make yourself that you never would have dreamed of making when you were in your home country? Me, I make all kinds of stuff.. and have benefited greatly from doing so. The food is healthier and the family enjoys it more. Here's a list of things I can think of right off the top of my head: Ham, Sausage, BBQ sauce, steak sauce, Worcestershire sauce, butter, tartar sauce, sour cream, mayonnaise, mustard, ketchup, spice rubs, pancake syrup, pasta, bread and other stuff I can't think of right now. I would love to make my own cheese and have tried a few times. Never turned out so good, though. So, what do you make? I am curious to know. Thanks, Jeff
  11. Thanks for that. Very kind thing to say and I appreciate it. Yeah, it's not easy for sure, but then I knew what I was getting into when I started. I started a couple of businesses here years ago and they were a headache. So, I always swore I would never do it again. But this time around has been a lot more enjoyable and fulfilling. Honestly, the business is doing much better in Davao than I had imagined. Of course, there is always room for improvement.

    Ham, not frozen

    You don't really need a full-sized oven. One of the larger counter top ovens will work fine. Because of the sauce business, I have a whole new kitchen (lol) but for the longest time I used a large counter top oven for everything. You can get one pretty cheap at an appliance store or one of the less-expensive department stores. Don't know if they have Gaisano or NCCC there, but they're usually the cheapest here in Mindanao.

    Where do I find............Tesco

    Well, if it's the UK version of Walmart, there's a lot pros and cons I suppose. Everyone loves to hate Walmart, but still likes the money they save by going there to shop. I wish they would open a few in the Philippines. Of course, that will never happen cause the malls would shut down soon after I reckon.
  14. My Lil' Jessie's coming soon, so...
