It’s not Easter yet, but these egg-shaped, pastel-colored chocolate treats from Villa Del Conte resurrected my craving for chocolates! Villa Del Conte Ovicinis are delicious, candy-coated dark chocolates from Padova, Italy. Each of these treats are filled with premium hazelnut cream.  The coating is crunchy and not overly sweet and the chocolates (they are made of dark chocolates so less guilt for us) are so rich and luscious when they melt inside the mouth.The pastel colors are so pretty and my and my girls just love them (baby...

Last month, my father in law celebrated his birthday and usually, when we go to celebrations like these, we have potlucks. This time, I decided to make my own blueberry cheesecake because Daddy has a sweet tooth and I know a cheesecake will just be a hit in special occasions like these. Last time, I made a Dulce De Leche Cheesecake but this time, I wanted to make something classic and fruity. So here’s a very easy recipe you can use if you want to make one at home. I used very basic ingredients which can be bought from any grocery...

Have you tried joining a fitness run? It’s fun and it’s always much better when you have a buddy or someone to run with. This year, the four of us were fortunate to be able to run altogether in Robinson Supermarket’s 10th Fit & Fun Wellness Buddy Run. It’s a much anticipated event annually because there are so many participating brands which sponsor it and everyone in the family can join. We’ve seen huge families who joined, couples only, small children (even infants), and even people in wheelchair.This...

Most of us love to eat US potatoes, more than we know it. We Filipino moms won’t find our “afritada” and “menudo” complete without potatoes. And there are a hundred more dishes where we include potatoes in them. Of course, most kids we know crave for French fries! Luckily for us, these humble potatoes are considered “wonder foods”. Let me tell you some of the most important reasons why.Packed with Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, Iron, and PotassiumUS potatoes contain more vitamin C than tomatoes or sweet potatoes. Vitamin C helps...

Robinsons Supermarket continues in its aim to make all Filipinos fit and healthy as it launched its promos a week in advance in time for the National Wellness Month which is the month of July. My daughter and I were so delighted to participate in their kick-off event, the Wellness Festival, which was held at Eastwood Central Plaza – Citywalk last June 23. It was a free event open to the public and there were several stations where visitors were encouraged to see and try the different products by Robinsons Supermarket’s wellness...

This dessert has been a long-time family favorite (at least for me and my youngest daughter). I remember when I was just discovering internet and I needed work ( I just resigned from my office work then to take care of my kids), I actually made leche flan  in different flavors and sold them in ebay. Facebook is not that popular then. I made the classic vanilla, chocolate and strawberry flavored leche flan. I stopped because the commute to deliver was tiresome although I earned at least a bit. So I tried making leche flan again and I thought...

The third Friday of May is the National Pizza Party Day, did you know that? This year, it will be on May 19 and what better way to celebrate it than eating your favorite pizza with your closest friends, barkada and of course, the family! What pizza will you be having? I’ve got the perfect idea! Greenwich, the Philippines’ favorite pizza and pasta chain, decided to put the the spotlight on their Hawaiian Overload Pizza in celebration of this year’s Pizza Party Day. And to help spread the news, a media launch was held this...

We only have several weeks more and the kids will be back to school. AND we will also be back to planning the daily baon and snacks. Despite all the choices we have, there are many times when we run out of ideas. Good thing, Mayora Philippines just launched CalCheese. It’s a new wafer snack, a little bit sweet and cheesy to taste, and available in sizes easy to pack in the kids’ lunch boxes. The wafers are very affordable too so I can just buy a couple of boxes and my girls can open some whenever they want to snack on them...
