Upgrade your homemade Halloween goodies

The spookiest night of the year is coming up! Soon it’ll be time to slip on fun costumes and hand out all kinds of treats to the kid-sized ghouls, goblins, and ghosts who will come trick-or-treating.

Children adore Halloween, the one day of the year famous for its connection to candy and every sweet treat imaginable. But all that sugar isn’t very good for them, and it’s a challenge for parents to come up with tasty treats that are as creepy (or creepier!) than mass-produced chocolate eyeballs and gummy monsters.



It’s not impossible, though, to produce treats that are wholesome, tasty, and still thrillingly Halloween-y! One such parent is self-professed travel enthusiast, foodie, and writer Stephanie Zubiri-Crespi. As a mother of two young children, she recognizes that her boys should enjoy the thrill of Halloween just like all the other kids, but also knows that curbing their sweet intake during this candy-crazed holiday is also important.

To strike a balance between treats, Steph cr…

Roast Beef with Mushroom Gravy


First on the line was the Roast Beef with Mushroom Gravy. The beef was really flavorful, soft and easy to chew, the beef compliments with the rich herb cream sauce, giving another level of taste to the dish.
Chicken Parmiagiano
. My second choice is Chicken Parmigiano conveniently placed on top of the rice. I love the crispy coating of the chicken on the outside but still juicy and tender on the inside. topped with melted cheese, spinach, and marinara…

Five ways recess time shaped our childhood

At a young age, what was your favorite part of the day in school? 
Aside from the core subject like Science, Math, Language, Reading and Araling Panlipunan, almost everyone is looking forward to taking recess either on the school cafeteria or enjoying a snack box from home.
A lot of your most cherished school memories would probably include a funny or embarrassing moment during recess time.

For generations of kids, recess time was, and still is, more than just a time for eating. It is a time for bonding, developing social skills and forging friendships over the shared love for food.

Remember those carefree school days?



Here are five ways snack time made a lasting impact on our childhood.

1. It gave us motivation to go to school. Remember when you couldn’t get yourself out of the bed on a school day? Aside from fear of mom and ‘ma’am,’ the thought of eating, and sharing, your favorite snack was enough to make you want to go to school.

2.It taught us about barter and sharing. Recess time …

Great food comes from quality ingredients and a great kitchen companion. As a mom, I usually spend my time in the kitchen preparing a hearty meal for my family, so having a kitchen companion like La Germania range can give us a peace of mind in knowing that no matter what culinary style a modern woman has, there’s a La Germania range suited to her and her needs: reliable,durable, and ready for action whenever she is.

Eatigo’s delicious discounts brings you a taste of Manila’s finest classics

Filipinos love for food is never ending, with almost every region in our country has its own specialties that they are truly proud of, we associate our emotions and memories with the food that we eat so we end up being attached to the taste and experience every time we dine. Admit it or not but aside from our love from food, we learned to value the money we spend for it so most of us not only seek the best tasting in town but also the best deal for our hard-earned money.

But that doesn't mean that every time we dine need to be priceless. Thankfully we have Eatigo, Asia’s leading online reservations platform which affords users time-based deals up to 50% off on their favorite participating restaurants.


A familiar choice from Eatigo would be Pancake House. This breakfast staple has been around since the 1970’s, inviting customers in with their vibrant orange and pink booths. But the real stars of this diner a…

Jollibee’s latest ad showcases its best-selling crispy-sarap fries!

To highlight the crispy-sarap in every bite of its best-selling Jolly Crispy Fries, fast-food giant releases an ad that will get you rushing to the nearest Jollibee

“Malata” (limp) means a general lack of energy, pep, enthusiasm, and when used to refer to food, a lack of crunch, lively flavor, or interesting textures. For many Pinoy French fry-lovers, there’s nothing better than enjoying crispy-sarap right from the first bite, like with Jollibee’s best-selling Jolly Crispy Fries.

Jollibee, the country’s number one fast-food brand, recently released an online video that hilariously captures how unfortunate malata—especially in a traditionally crispy favorite—can be. With on-point comedic performances and crave-inducing beauty shots of the Jolly Crispy Fries.



By focusing on situations where malata just wouldn’t cut it, the video—conceptualized by creative agency Dentsu Jayme Syfu and brought to life by Makina Productions—shows a scene familiar to many Pinoy teens: a volleyball game.
