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...

Can this heat ever be bearable? Even if we set our air-conditioners at home to full blast, there are days that these machines aren’t able to handle the heat. It’s so difficult to feel cool, isn’t it? With the daily grind at home and this feverish temperature, sometimes the only way to escape the burn is to go to the mall even for a few hours. But to make summer more interesting and a lot sweeter, our favorite dessert donut J.CO launched its new Affogato series.A traditional affogato is a scoop of ice cream drowned in...

I go frequently to Goldilocks branches, not only for the breads and cakes but also for their value meals. I like their pasta, Pinoy dishes such as kare-kare and bistek, and their halo-halo and coolers. So the first time their Gtizen My Wallet rewards card was released which I saw through my email, I made sure that I got one. The application was a bit tedious then because you have to fill up an actual bank (RCBC) application form and have an accumulated amount in your receipts before you can get one. But this time, you can get a Goldilocks...
