Classic Polvoron

December 2016, I landed a one-time freelance job wherein I earned Php 10,500 ($207.70) in just four days. I am not joking (but I can’t tell any info about the job). Since I know that that kind of opportunity may not happen again, I decided to buy stuff that I can use to start a small business with small capital.

Here in the Philippines, in my opinion, polvoron and pastillas are the best sellers for all ages. Why?

First, they are affordable. Polvoron is usually priced as low as Php3 ($0.06) to Php15 ($0.30) depending on the variant, and for pastillas its Php1 ($0.02) to Php10 ($0.20) depending on how big it is.

Second, their ingredients are household staples. You can actually start your small business by using what you already have.

Third, Filipinos, regardless of their age, loves anything sweet. By anything, I mean A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G. We love sweets so much that sometimes we make a sweet version of foods that are NOT meant to be sweet.

I decided to make polvoron first. It’s my first time preparing this. The recipe that I used is from Pinoy Cooking Recipes. Continue reading “Classic Polvoron”

Mango Custard on His 5th Month

This is one of the posts that stayed way too long on The Drafts. This was for my son’s 5th month (remember the no-bake fudgee cake? ) and I got so busy. Well, here it is.

For the ingredients, we need:

1 cup fresh milk (or evaporated milk)
1 pack all purpose cream
1/4 cup condensed milk
2 medium sized ripe mangoes
1 tbsp Yellow Mr. Gulaman (unflavored)

Procedure:

  1. Dissolve 1 tbsp gulaman in 1/4 cup water. Let it sit for 10 minutes.
  2. Prepare the mangoes. I used this Speedy Chopper from Tupperware to easily make the Mango Puree.

Rui’s 5th month

Last October 6, we celebrated Rui’s 5th month. We prepared pasta and mango jelly (I’m not sure of the name). I was supposed to make a no-bake black forest but I’m worried that Erika and Alexis would eat too much of it.  They just finished medication for tonsilitis so… 

 Later that night, CJ came home with this black forest cake which they obviously enjoyed.
