Fisher Farms Gourmet Baked Rellenong Bangus for the Holidays

Move on over ham and lechon, our family enjoyed a healthier kind of Noche Buena this year as we shared with our loved ones this 1.3kg Gourmet Baked Rellenong Bangus created by celebrity chef and food expert Reggie Aspiras. 

The milkfish is stuffed with a savory filling of fish, sweet potato, bangus belly, shrimp and other premium and special ingredients that give a holiday twist to this traditional dish. Juicy and flavorful but not cloying like its fried counterparts, the Gourmet Baked Rellenong Bangus makes any celebration merry and healthy.

Manulife’s Bundle of Joy: A lasting gift for our young family’s future by Cheryl De Guia-Lim (Guest Post)

If there’s one thing I learned as a newbie parent, one should give what’s best for the child, especially for a newborn baby. Parents are expected to know how to feed, bathe, clothe, play with, and generally care for their baby – but babies don't come with instructions. And even if this isn't your first, you may still be trying to figure out how to deal with it physically, emotionally and financially.

The vast majority of newborns enter the world healthy but they are more vulnerable to germs than older babies because they simply haven't had time to build up defenses. Sometimes infants develop conditions that require medical tests and treatment. All signs and symptoms are of even greater concern if the baby is less than 3 months old.

We experienced this first hand as my husband Oliver and I found ourselves rushing to the emergency room at 2 a.m. due to the high fever of our newborn son. After a series of laboratory tests to rule out bigger complications, our little boy was diagnosed with Urinary Tract Infection (UTI). Seven days and eighty thousand pesos later, we were discharged with our baby healthier and stronger.

Krem-Top's Change for the Better Campaign

When else is it more apt to call on people towards progress and doing things better than the end of the year. While others might think the start of the year is better, this end of the year campaign also allows for us to celebrate the great accomplishments of the year that we are about to conclude.

Krem-Top has just spearheaded a national campaign towards "Change for the Better."  This started in 2012, as a call to action for people to commit and sustain the change to become better individuals.

Lotus Biscoff is now available in local stores

Lotus Biscoff, which is known to jetsetters as the "in-flight treat" has arrived in Manila through Flying Ace Corporation. The cookie butter craze has dominated the market in this last couple of years and the only way consumers can buy it is through online sellers who also order from overseas. 

The newly acquired exclusively distributed brand by Flying Ace is going to make a lot of households happy now that Lotus Biscoff can be found in supermarkets nationwide. 

From top to bottom: Roquefort Salad with Biscoff, Crostini Biscoff Salpicao, Pumpkin Shooter with Biscoff and Fish Finger with Biscoff Crumbs 

When we attended the Grand Lotus Biscoff launch in Makati last week, it didn't occur to me the endless possibilities of Lotus Biscoff, whether it's the spread or the cookies themselves. Renowned French Chef Patrice of Society Lounge did a great job in coming up with such delicious array of Biscoff-infused (spread and biscuits) dishes. They all tasted so good, on a very first class level. We helped ourselves with more than a single helping. 

The concept of Biscoff (Biscuit + Coffee) isn't really the norm for us in the local scene. Yes, we have biscotti in coffee shops but there's really not so much to hype about. For some very gastronomic and palatable reason, the caramelized Biscoff goes well in perfect harmony with the taste of coffee. My wife and I agree that it's the ultimate coffee experience. We haven't enjoyed coffee as much as we do now. 

Biscoff Cinammon Rolls

Biscoff cookies have been Europe’s coffee break favorite since 1932.  It is baked in the small Belgium town of Lembeke, in the same location where its founders, the Boone brothers, opened their first bakery. Once the cookies were packed, the brothers would drive around town in their trademark red truck to deliver these prized treats. Eight decades later and the recipe still remains. It was in the 1950s when Lotus introduced pairing these cookies with coffee, which then became a routine in Belgian hotels, restaurants, and coffee shops. Soon, Lotus Biscoff became “Europe’s Favorite Cookie with Coffee.”
