    Let My Jinga Juice Bring Out Your Youthful Glow!

    Do you ever have skin problems? Eczema, acne and Psoriasis, to name a few. Do your kids or someone you know suffer from itchiness and discomfort these irritations bring? Most of us do or did have to go through irritations like these and we have to resort using expensive topical creams or maybe dermatological remedies. A lot did not know that Guyabano (Soursop) and Wheatgrass can help – clean, safe and healthy! My JINGA JUICE is made from Guyabano (the whole fruit and its seeds) and Wheatgrass…the first of its kind in the market. There were reports that Guyabano seeds and leaves were used as skin astringent, used to treat…

    Recommended: My Jinga Juice!

    Why we highly recommend Jinga Juice? Thought you’d never ask! WHEATGRASS alone is a powerful detoxifier and bloodstream protector. It restores alkalinity to the blood and can double your red blood cell count. Wheatgrass is perfect as it contains Chlorophyll. Chlorophyll improves blood sugar problems. GUYABANO on the other hand, is an effective help to lower high blood pressure. It is also used for depression, stress and nervous disorders. In addition, it is highly effective against internal parasites and worms. Perfect for kids! Jinga Juice is something they would surely enjoy!

    1st of May

    The month of May has always been special to me. It is but an extra ordinary month since I was a kid. First of May, besides being the Labor Day, is the feast of St. Joseph the Worker, our barangay’s patron saint. I have lots of happy “fiesta” memories. Several group of friends at our place would set up parlor games with prizes and there were a few times I took home cash prizes. =) Besides the feast, May 2 is my Dad’s birthday. May 3 is one of my nephew’s birthday too. He’s someone my Mama and I took care of when he was a baby to his toddler…

    In the Kitchen: Merienda Galore

    What is one best way to spend time with the family? During merienda! Afternoon snacks besides night chats is one part of the day I enjoy spending with my kids. My kids don’t have high levels of appetite (especially my elder daughter) but they have all the thrills and giggles whenever I serve something for them. We call it “Takaw-Tingin” here in the Philippines. It is summer and kids are out for vacation and as we all know, kids nowadays are unstoppable. They make it necessary for us parents to prepare something new for them, be it food, games, toys or unlimited number of activities so as to keep their…

    In the Kitchen: Beef Kare-Kare

    I have cousins who do really good in terms of cooking. There may not be a chef in our clan but a lot of them (excluding me since I only have the interest but not the skill) really can make delicious dishes. We have been teasing one cousin to put up a catering business – this excites me in all honesty. I just wish she would soon agree and have the guts and capital to start the business. I have been wanting to serve the family something out of the usual dish we have everyday and so I thought of Kare-Kare. Kare-Kare originated from Pampanga, Philippines. Kapampangans use either oxtail, tripe or…

    New Flavors: Selecta Ice Cream

    We are beating the summer heat! Either we go out swimming or just chill and spend time at home, we make sure to keep our cool! One way of doing so is enjoying cold drinks and desserts – ice cream on top of the list! We have tried the new flavors of Selecta ice cream, Mrs. Fields Chocolate Chip Cookie and Oreo Rocky Road. And to tell you honestly, these tubs were empty in less than 48 hours. It was not quite fast since I get to enjoy these new flavors with just 2 kids. We all love the new flavors, hmmm… I personally have enjoyed the Mrs. Fields  Chocolate Chip…

    Good Enough for Royalty?

      Since her pregnancy was announced, earlier than planned due to her acute morning sickness, all eyes have been back on the Duchess of Cambridge, if they ever left her in the first place. The past few years have seen obsessives pre-empting her every outfit for all kind of event and it is unlikely it will stop now with maternity wear. We all know she is going to be a yummy-mummy and she will regain her figure in no time but we are left wondering whether she will return to the Dukan diet as a healthy diet plan or not. All diets have controversies, especially those used by high-ranking celebrities…

    My Tabletop Electric Oven

    My tabletop electric oven was a gift. I have been eyeing a beautiful oven from the appliance center for a long time but saving to get it will take a lot longer. So, with a friend”s suggestion, and since I am not really planning on using it for business purposes (using it now just for my kids), I told Ronald (yes, he”s the financier for this oven) that I would go for this one. I have been Pinterest inspired! As soon as I have read the manual for this tabletop oven, I started baking! I have had my share of baking failures but have a atoledo.com lot of successful ones too. Most…

    In The Kitchen: Bake Time!

      If I have had a baking sad story, I can tell you more successful ones at least. That disappointment I felt with the cupcake disaster that happened the first time I tried to make buttercream frosting did not stop me from baking. As most positive individuals do, I took it as a challenge to be better.  Carrot-Yogurt Muffins Since most people here says no to super sweets, I decided to do bold cupcakes instead – muffins! The photo above shows a carrot / yogurt muffin and in the next photo are chewy Lemon cookies. Pardon the photo quality as these photos were taken using my netbook’s camera.  Lemon cookies…
