Today, I’d like to share with you two recipes which you would love to try for merienda. Carbonara Not so much was written about the origin of Carbonara dish except that we know that it is Italian. Despite little knowledge, carbonara is almost always one of the favorites of every women. Why? Because it’s so flexible you can just put anything on top of your pasta and you have your own version of this dish. Here’s a recipe recently shared to me by my friend from Jolly Foods and Fly Ace Corporation. JOLLY FETTUCCINE A LA...

I think the easiest recipe a Filipina mom can cook is adobo but for me, who doesn’t have the natural cooking skills, it took me a while before I was able to cook this traditional dish without batting an eyelash. For the Ajinomoto Cooking Challenge, even delayed it might be, I decided to post this hoping that it will help some mothers out there who still hasn’t found the right mixture for the simple pork adobo. The twist on my recipe is that I always put sitaw (stringbeans) on it, to serve as an extender and to add nutrition...

When it comes to dengue protection, I consider me and my husband as OCs (obsessive-compulsives) and we are not ashamed of it. You can never be sure with dengue and with the rate of increase of dengue victims no matter what the weather is, we all have reasons to be fearful and protective. Honestly, when you open our medicine cabinet, you will see all sorts of brand of mosquito repellents (lotion/spray/stick on). I also grab mosquito repellent samples when I see them being given away in malls. As much as possible, we wear pants and clothes...

I remember reading about Blogapalooza last year and I thought it must be cool to attend such event. And now, I’m one of the first 200 registrants! Ha!Why am I excited? 1. It’s my first Blogapalooza and it feels good to say that I am really into blogging! You know that feeling when you have so many things to say which you feel are quite useful and you don’t have so many people around you to listen to you all the time? Through blogging, I now have an avenue where I think some people benefit from what I know, even if I...

  PR source: Ajinomoto Filipinos love food with strong meaty flavors, which is why saucy, soupy or stir-fried dishes would usually be accentuated with pork meat or broth. It is for this reason that Ajinomoto Philippines Corporation (APC) came up with a new product called Porksavor™ All-in-One Seasoning. Porksavor™ is made from natural pork meat extract and bone broth, complete with spices and seasonings to bring out the deliciousness of home-cooked dishes. The new Porksavor™ is available in 8-gram packs for only PhP 2.00 Suggested...

If you have been to Eastwood City in Libis, Quezon City, you may already know that the place is a foodie’s heaven. All kinds of restaurants have their own spots within this mini city. We have been exploring Eastwood for years since we attend afternoon Sunday mass at the Holy Family Chapel. After hearing mass, we will usually roam around and check out our possible lunch server that weekend. Like many families who treat Sunday as the most special day of the week, we try to dine in where we think we will get that special meal we are...

If it’s sugar-free, yes. And it’s a happy fact for me because we are chewing gum lovers. My daughters have misaligned teeth that’s why my eldest is wearing braces. But both of my kids do not have tooth decay. And I realized maybe because I have this habit of always bringing gum packs in my bag. Recently Xylitol invited us for an intimate meet-up of moms like me. And that was when I’ve learned all these dental benefits of sugar free chewing gums. To summarize some of them, here are some bulletpoints: 1. Tooth decay...

I’ve never thought we still have these lovely home items till I decided to join Nuffnang’s latest blog contest. Fortunately, I have been posting before on online classified ads and OLX is one of the most popular these days. We are unofficially what you call pack rats and we just keep items as long as we can. However, my kids are growing up and our space is getting cramped up. It’s just time to let go of some of these pre-loved items and let them be useful to others.As I took photos of these items, I tried to reminisce...
