I’m going to try this hearty lumpia meal tomorrow (Sunday). Thanks Del Monte Kitchenomics for the timely recipe. I’m regularly receiving a newsletter from them and the suggested recipes are really very helpful for a busy mom like me.

Ideas for throwing a party

Plan for the party that you want to celebrate, be it Thanksgiving or you kid’s birthday party and stick to the theme. With a limited budget you can make creative displays using raw materials from your home. You can create interesting shapes and designs from empty cartons. Paint it according to the color and designs of your chosen theme.

You’re done with the displays now carefully plan the menu. Be sure the food is appropriate for the occasion and should be tasty. Guests normally talk about the food long after the party is over.
Don’t forget to come up with games to keep your guests entertained. Also, play an appropriate music. It’s good if someone from the family knows how to play a focusrite saffire pro 40 guitar to set the mood.

Max’s Heartwarming Flavors for Lent

Max’s is serving three delicious dishes as its offering to loyal patrons this season of Lent. These dishes are available in all their branches nationwide.

Sizzling Seafood in Honey Bagoong Sauce is a harmony of breaded cream dory, shrimps and squid rings that are deep-fried until light, golden brown, sprinkled with julienned red bell peppers and chopped spring onions, and splashed with a special sauce that brings together sweet honey and piquant bagoong. Served in a sizzling hot plate, this sensational dish is a guaranteed must-try for seafood aficionados.


Adobong Kangkong Stuffed Tofu is an inventive and mouthwatering twist to the quintessential adobo. Fresh kangkong leaves, shiitake and button mushrooms drizzled in sweet adobo sauce stuffed in deep-fried tofu blocks. The harmony of greens and earthy colors lend a refreshing vibe that appeals to both vegetable and non-vegetable eaters.


Cauliflower Puffs is the perfect dish for very picky young diners and self-confessed meat-lovers. Crisp cauliflowers are dipped in a special batter, deep-fried and tossed in a special sauce. Fun and vibrant colors of finely sliced carrots and spring onions also brighten up the plate. Every crunchy bite of this palatable dish makes diners forget that they are actually eating cauliflowers!
