Almond Flour and Oatmeal Chocolate Cookies

I always, always make time to do some research in the kitchen, removing guilt whenever I feed something delightful to my family.  It's really hard to get focused and staying up tuned to healthy living especially when you have a diabetic in the family.

Discover the Flavor of Tex-Mex in SM MOA at Fiery Style

I could not forget the first time our family had Tex-Mex together and it was five years ago in Dumaguete. Imagine, we even have to travel all the way to Dumaguete to be able to try what is said to be authentic yet with a modern flair of Mexican dishes.

We loved that foodie experience and since then, we'd have this hankering for Tex-Mex or even some true-blue Mexican dish, from time to time.

Lessons LIFE Taught Me for 42 Years

You've heard it right I'm already 42 (March 20 was my birthday, haven't you known) and I never denied my age,  but I try to conceal it, I'd to thank good health, contentment, and love for that.  

Again, many would be surprised if I tell them my age and I always get this statement, "You don't look your age!" And I would joke like "Oo nga parang 39 lang" (when I told them I'm already 40). Many would say, age is just a number, I couldn't agree more, but I'd rather use this thought - As we grow old, We grow riper.

On Being a Prime Mom with Mega Prime’s Canned Fruits and Vegetables

Mega Prime, the brand that paved the way to quality canned vegetables in the market had just recently renewed their contracts with Marian Rivera-Dantes.  Since it's plunge into the market bringing canned Mushrooms, Kernel Corn, and Green Peas products, they knew Marian would best suit the embodiment of a Mega Prime endorser.

Many girls look up to Marian especially now that she is a mom to an equally beautiful girl. It was indubitable for people not to notice the brand without Maryan in the picture, and according to her, she uses the products and believes in the products.  She added, "if you know the product and can trust it, why would I not approve the tie-up with Mega Prime?"

LG's Stand for a Cleaner, Greener Environment for Women

In modern societies, it is important to consider how we connect and preserve with nature.

Pollution (air, noise and waste) is on the rise, biodiversity is lost, and, all over the world, people are suffering the consequences of climate change due to constant development.

Women, in particular, are more vulnerable to the detrimental effects caused by pollution and toxic substances compared to men. Women have a different relationship with the environment given their needs and responsibilities as household stewards, economic providers, and their role in reproduction.

Birthday Month GIVEAWAY!

HELLO everyone!

Have you ever heard of the phrase "mad as a March hare?"

Well, that's literally how I would sum up this month! Try as I must, I don't want to put myself in the same idiom sense.  I still managed to be collected and not too frantic about my calendar being full and wonky, but there would be times, that I would be likened to Mad Hatter but definitely not the March Hare.

Recipe: Cheesy Beef Stroganoff

Sometimes, when we're tired of eating chicken dishes, we buy fresh-cut beef in the market and end up cooking it either "tapa-style" or "Bistek."  But when you have tons of Anchor products in your fridge, especially having their cheeses in packs, you get to be inventive.

Endless Possibilities of Celebrating with Feliz Dish & Details

Throwing a festive fete can be exasperating, but when managed properly and a little help from creative people who walk the talk, having one can be so rewarding and fun.

Parties are getting more and more novel, and Pinterest can be of help or could add to the confusion.  Whether you want to go with the trend or just have it simple, your event, intimate or grand, can be memorable and worth the effort.

Last Saturday, I was able to attend the launch of Feliz Dish and Details.  But prior to that, I received a wonderful invitation that came in this gorgeous little party in a box.

Mott's 100% Apple Juice and Peter Rabbit Equals One Exciting GIVEAWAY!

Beatrix Potter has created a character which children can easily relate to. The story is so simple yet seemed engaging enough for young kids.  We can all agree that nothing is as irresistible as something that is off-limits, and Peter Rabbit is no exception to this rule. Peter’s wayward behavior is in contrast to his sisters, Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cotton-tail, who were well-behaved little bunnies.

Surviving Two Days in Taipei, Taiwan

Ever heard of bizarre travel plans, well that's probably how I roll with my family and the trip I had with my husband is no exemption.

We tend to create unconventional itineraries when we travel. It’s a little alarming at first as we worry about what we might miss out on. But in the end, we see the place in our own way, at our own pace and it doesn’t matter that we haven’t checked all the standard sights off our checklist. We have something to go back and see in our roundabout way on the next trip.

I've been so busy with a lot of things as of late but at the back of my mind, I've been thinking about how I could make my husband and I's anniversary less tacky, not boring and something we could say "glad we did it" or just "WE did it."
