Espresso Day at McDonald’s

I first heard about the espresso day promo from facebook.  So here’s the deal.  You know McDonald’s has McCafe.  Mondays and Saturdays only.  For every value meal that you purchase, you can have your drink upgraded for free to a regular cappuccino or a medium iced mocha.  I think it’s a great deal because an … Continue reading

Dessert Duo: Oreo Cookie Balls and Banana Chocolate Mousse

My boss in the US always comments on how many holidays we have in Manila.  Practically every month.  More notably, we had 3 holidays for August 2013.  If our office had been located in Quezon City, we would have had 4 holidays this month. But I made good use of the last holiday and tried … Continue reading

Homemade Frozen Vegetables

The other day, I was at the supermarket to stock up on hubby’s office snacks and some coffee. When I reached the freezer section,  I saw some frozen broccoli, a bag of which was about as big as a legal-sized document and costs about Php180.  Beside it was a bag of the same size containing … Continue reading

Chocolate on My Waffles

No butter or maple syrup on my waffles please.  Just dark chocolate syrup, thank you.     If you find it weird that I put chocolate syrup on my waffles, you’re not alone.  A lot of people have told me how weird I am, haha. 🙂  Try it before you judge! Really good! Before, I … Continue reading

Cream Cheese Spread

There was a time when S&R was on sale, and I managed to buy a box of Philadelphia Cream Cheese for only Php65.  That’s really a good deal.  I would’ve bought more, but I was warned about how short the shelf life was.  Dad said that I had to consume it within a week after … Continue reading

Dinner at Diners’ Den

  We found a new affordable place to dine at at Tomas Morato.  Yes, Tomas Morato has dozens and dozens of restaurants, but finding one that is affordable is a real challenge.  Most of the restaurants there are familiar establishments, so we know which ones to steer clear of. We tried Diner’s Den simply because … Continue reading

Waffles at White Hat Serendra

Did you even know that White Hat served waffles? D and I went to Serendra after attending a wedding at Forbes Park.  It was a first time for D to go there, and book lover that he is, was looking forward to the huge Fully Booked branch there.  We had an early lunch that day … Continue reading

The Salad Lunch

September 23-25 marks the first Mega Food Sale at Megamall.  Apparently, how it works is that a vast majority of the restaurants there offer lots of discounts on selected dishes.  Some of my friends opted for the dimsum-all-you-want at HK Choi for Php300, and some had the churros-all-you-want at Dulcinea for Php99. As for me, … Continue reading

Broccoli Salad

This is a winner.  I made it as a side dish, but we realized that this could be filling enough for a whole meal in itself.   Real easy to make, and yummy, and nutritious.  What more could you ask for? Cut up the broccoli and cauliflower into bite-size pieces.  Wash and blanch.  I boiled … Continue reading
