Low-Carb, Low-sugar Peter Pan Peanut Butter Cookies Using Coconut Flour

I was finally able to use the coconut flour I bought last month at Healthy Options.

Apart from using almond flour and oat flour, I also have added coconut flour in my baking. YAY!

#FlavorYourFun with Conagra Brands at the Family Preview of Ralph Wrecks the Internet

What used to be a leisure to me had turned out into one crazy chore with my kids, and not to mention the cost I would be spending when my kids would join me.  I have my list, they, however don't but we'd end up buying more of  the things they want than buying all the things on my list.

Grocery shopping isn't just about crossing items off a to-do list, anymore, for me, it’s more of knowing what your family loves and spending delicious, memorable moments with them.  But of course making sure that they are made according to health standards I adhere to, and what sumptuous dishes I could create with them ingredients.

Good thing there's Conagra Brands.

You too can discover delectable ways to get creative and make memories with Conagra Brands’ roster of quality products the whole family is sure to love. One of North America's leading packaged food companies with beloved brands including Hunt’s tomato products, Libby’s Vienna sausage and corned beef, PAM cooking spray, Peter Pan peanut butter, Act II popcorn, Snack Pack pudding and gels, Reddi Wip whipped cream and Blue Bonnet margarine, Conagra Brands lets you #FlavorYourFun with ease and share it with the people you love whenever you’re together.

Conagra Brands sure had hit the warm spot that thugs the heart of every consumers.  At the media preview of Conagra Brands, they had invited celebrities, influencers and media representative to watch the private screen of Ralph Wrecks the Internet, all while indulging everyone with snack creations made from Conagra Brands.

In the media round off held at the movie screening of Ralph Wrecks the Internet last November 24, Saturday at Bonifacio High Street (BHS) Central Square Cinemas, the marketing arm of Conagra Brands showed us how we can take our favorites even further, coz they know specially with moms who are all about getting their family to spend time together in delicious ways.

The event was taken up further with fun- (and food-) loving kids and their doting parents who got to sample more of Conagra Brands’ flavorful and fun treats as the company showcased its flagship products and ambassadors at a special block screening of Ralph Breaks the Internet on .We all sampled unique and yummy movie-themed snacks before the film, got to meet Conagra Brands’ team of mom ambassadors who shared and showed off their inventive twists on their family’s food favorites.

Caught up with Ms. Danica Sotto Pingris.  She's an actress, host, and rising YouTube chef.  She finds that Conagra products are a worthy addition to her kitchen arsenal. As the mother of two school-age children, she is familiar with the task of preparing baon for them every day. “Since my kids love Libby’s Vienna Sausages, I cook it for their baon all the time! Libby’s Corned Beef makes a great and tasty breakfast too, it’s such a staple in our household.”

She also finds herself reaching for convenient and delicious Snack Packs to make lunchboxes both fun and healthy. “I love how Snack Pack gives me a way to feed my kids fruits. Since you can easily mix in fresh fruits to give the pudding some extra flavor, it’s a perfect baon treat that will give kids the nutrition they need!” she exclaims.

When it comes to preparing snacks and desserts for the family, Peter Pan peanut butter is another one of Danica’s favorites. “I love how versatile it is,” she gushes. “It’s always a hit when I spread it on pancakes, make it a dip for my homemade granola bars, or simply put it on my bananas! You can do many wonderful things with Peter Pan!”

As a model, food enthusiast, and host, Xandra Rocha Araneta’s busy schedule and energetic family keep her on her toes too, which is why she enjoys leisurely weekend brunch at home. “My go-to meal is always Libby’s Corned Beef,” she says. “I add in tons of onions and tomatoes. My husband likes it a little crunchy, so I let the corned beef crisp up in the pan before serving. We enjoy it with fluffy scrambled eggs and garlic fried rice!”

When she’s baking, Xandra loves how convenient it is to have products like PAM Cooking Spray handy. “Just a couple sprays of PAM on the pan, and my baking sessions are hassle-free!” she says. As a health-conscious foodie, she also finds that Conagra strikes the perfect balance between indulgence and nutrition.

She also found that using Blue Bonnet margarine makes for a great alternative to butter that’s still delicious!  Hence, I'm taking her word for it, as I haven't tried it with my baking.

With so many kitchen favorites to choose from, you’re sure to love making every moment more delicious thanks to Conagra Brands.

At the event, the guests, including yours truly were given chance to bring home some of the feautured products, and I'm just as excited to prepare good-tasting meals with these.

Enjoying Taiwanese Fare at Fat Fook's Newest Branch in BGC

"Once in a while it really hits people that they don’t have to experience the world in the way they have been told to."

Have you ever heard or read that statement?

This holds true to any travelers. To really know the real deal of certain cultures, you have to be there where it is supposed to be based, like when we talk about Taiwanese cuisine, eating their dishes off the streets gives you a sense of authenticity, when you start learning about tradition one bite at a time.  It is so different when you just read it in blogs or magazines, it's all about the sights, sound and taste.

The Peak Raises the Bar on Dining, Literally!

Have you ever  heard of a penthouse-living inspired restaurant?  It's when the top floor of a building is modified where one room flows to another, with the cozy ambiance of home while reveling at the scenic views of Manila skyline.

How Our Family Got Korean Visa Despite NOT Having ITR's

Don't you just think airline companies has multi-faceted ways of luring you to buy flight tickets to one of the world destinations you have been dreaming off?

I've been sober from impulsive buying for a decade already, and being a learned frugal mom, I now know where to put our hard earned money.

Insurance investment and T-R-A-V-E-L.  Want me to spell it again?

"But traveling isn't cheap," as most would argue but it's one of the best investment you can gift yourself and your family.  Education should not be contained inside a four-walled room, kids will learn more through experience, culture and history.  History can be tangible and is not just written in textbooks.  My four kids would attest to that.

Let LG Keep Your Food for Longer

We’ve been witnessing an eating revolution over the last few years. More and more, modern recipes and cooking techniques have been emphasizing the importance of eating healthy and sourcing fresh ingredients in order to cook well-balanced meals from scratch. Cooking with fresh ingredients instead of processed or preserved food results in meals packed with more nutrients and flavor. Ingredients that don’t come out of a can or plastic packaging are also infinitely healthier.
