Conti’s is Set to be Your Next Breakfast Spot

Breakfast is often regarded as the most important meal of the day. There’s at least one very good reason for that. It’s the first after several hours of no food intake through the night. Therefore, it provides the nourishment needed to recharge the body and prepare it for the demands of the new day. Aside from that, breakfast likewise gives other essential nutrients that help maintain good health.

But not everyone is getting the right breakfast. Some don’t even get any breakfast at all. The reasons may include lack of time to prepare, a limited menu at home, and a pantry that isn’t well stocked for a variety of dishes.

Fortunately, there are excellent options to get the right breakfast and start the day optimally. At popular homegrown food chain Conti’s Bakeshop and Restaurant, there are several choices for dine-in, takeout, or delivery that are sure to delight different tastes.

Lovers of classic Pinoy dishes will get their rich and tasteful day starter with any of three favorites. The Homemade Beef Tapa Strips crackles with its perfectly crispy strips. Mom’s Garlic Longganisa is an excellent pick-me-upper with its potent mix of sweet and spice. Both are served with fried rice, eggs, and atchara or pickled ubod.

Conti’s breakfast options available for dine-in, take out, delivery

A new addition to the breakfast menu is Adobo Omelette Fried Rice. Conti’s’ own version of Omurice, it’s a delicious twist on a classic featuring fried rice mixed with adobo chunks enveloped in a silky scrambled egg mixture and topped with garlic aioli. To complete the meal, it’s served with fresh salad on the side. An alternative is the Chorizo Omelette Fried Rice filled with chorizo sausage bits.

For more health-conscious diners who still want a lot of flavors, there’s Salmon Belly in Olive Oil. This Norwegian-style dish boasts mouth-watering salmon belly strips in seasoned olive oil and is served with lemon rice, eggs, and pickled ubod.

Another international-style breakfast option is Conti’s Berry Brioche French Toast. It features a hearty mix of brioche French toast slices, mixed berries compote, crispy bacon and egg, and is topped with a light drizzle of honey and a dollop of whipped cream. A filling offering that’s perfect for those who want a lot of textures and flavors without feeling super heavy in the tummy.

If you love a good breakfast or brunch, then you’ll love this line of delectable and delightful treats from Conti’s. Truly delicious and satisfying. You’ll find that special something that not only starts your day right but takes your mornings to the next level.

Make Easy and Mouthwatering Dishes with USA Blueberries + USA Blueberries Recipes

Invitation to join A Blue Christmas – a Recipe Contest 

My kids love blueberries! Blueberry pancakes. Blueberry smoothies. Blueberry cupcakes. The list goes on. I simply put some blueberries in a bowl and they enjoy them as is, too. I love how I can easily include these berries in their meals. So, yeah, blueberries are always in my grocery list!

Blueberries are definitely a healthy food. They provide essential nutrients with a wide range of health benefits. Blueberries are low in sodium with virtually no fat. It is an excellent source of immunity enhancing-vitamin C, plus vitamin K and manganese for bone health, and dietary fiber for improved digestion. You get all that healthy goodness in just a handful of blueberries!

For quality blueberries, I always go for blueberries from the USA. During the summer season in the U.S., fresh blueberries are abundant. But year-round, frozen or canned blueberries are available in leading supermarkets and grocery stores here in the Philippines. 

Here are some ideas on how you can make easy and delectable dishes using blueberries:

1. Breakfast and Snacks

Use it in pancakes, waffles, and yogurt bowls. You can also make blueberry smoothies, trail mix, ice cream, and popsicles. 

2. Sauces and Jams

I recently discovered you can also make blueberry barbecue sauce! I have yet to try this and will share it with you once I do. You can also include blueberries in recipes for pork tenderloin, meatballs, chicken, pizzas, burgers, and sandwiches. It’s so versatile and nutritious! Blueberry jams, on the other hand, can be paired with your favorite bread or as a dip for your biscuits or crackers.

3. Pastries and Baked Goodies

You can never go wrong with blueberries mixed in with your favorite pastry and cake recipes. You can also use it to add flavor to your frosting or glaze. I’m not a pro in baking so I usually rely on cake mixes sold in grocery stores. I just follow the package instructions and add in blueberries to give it a twist and make it my own version.

I always have loads of fun in the kitchen when I’m prepping blueberries. So I’m sharing with you two easy recipes using pre-made mixes and USA Blueberries. Try it at home and enjoy!

My Top 3 Reasons Why I Love U.S. Potatoes + Potato Gnocchi Recipe

My kids have started school last month and we are still adjusting to their new schedules. This leaves me with not much time to prep for our daily meals, so I’m always on the lookout for quick and healthy recipes.

I try to incorporate their favorite vegetables in our meals and I’m thankful our family loves potatoes. We regularly buy spuds from the supermarket. Our choice? U.S. potatoes, of course! 

Here’s my top 3 reasons why I love U.S. potatoes:

1. HEALTHY

Potatoes are more energy-packed than any other popular vegetable and have more potassium than a banana. A serving of potatoes (148 grams with skin on) contains 30% of the recommended daily value of Vitamin C. It is also a good source of Vitamin B6; contributes 7% of dietary fiber, 6% of iron and 3 grams of protein — and all with only 110 calories and no fat, cholesterol or sodium. Potatoes are naturally gluten-free, too.

2. AVAILABILITY

Top-quality U.S. potato products come in many forms: fresh, frozen and dehydrated. They are available in supermarkets, groceries, and membership shopping outlets nationwide. 

3. VERSATILITY

Did you know you can also make dumplings, donuts, and whole lot of desserts using potatoes? I didn’t know that until I came across some potato recipes that really blew my mind! Amazing, right? 

Lately, I have been enjoying cooking with the multipurpose U.S. dehydrated potatoes! Let me share with you a delicious and nutritious recipe I recently discovered: U.S. Potato Gnocchi with Basil, Parmesan and Butter.

U.S. Potato Gnocchi with Basil, Parmesan and Butter

Gnocchi are a varied family of dumplings in Italian cuisine. The dough of gnocchi is most often rolled out before it is cut into small pieces. The dumplings may be pressed with a fork or a cheese grater to make ridges or cut into little lumps.

I used U.S. potato dehydrated flakes to make my Potato Gnocchi. I rehydrated it first by boiling water with butter and salt. Once the butter and salt have melted, I removed them from the heat. I then added cold milk and the potato flakes. I stirred it gently until all the ingredients were incorporated. So easy! You can also easily adjust it for your desired texture.

U.S. Potato Dehydrated Flakes
Preparation of U.S. potato dehydrated flakes

I enjoyed making my Italian dumplings from scratch. The gnocchi was soft and chewy, just the way I like it. It was a hit with the kids and I’ll definitely cook this again. Another dish added to our menu! Check out my recipe below:

U.S. Potato Gnocchi with Basil, Parmesan and Butter
Ingredients

U.S. Potato Gnocchi with Basil, Parmesan and Butter

Ingredients:

1 cup rehydrated U.S. dehydrated potato flakes

1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

¼ cup all-purpose flour (for dusting)

1 large egg

1 liter water

1 tbsp butter, unsalted

1 tbsp garlic, minced

½ cup of basil leaves

• parmesan cheese, grated

• salt & pepper to taste

Preparation:

1. Rehydrate the potato flakes. Follow packaging instructions.

2. Add flour and egg to the rehydrated potato flakes and mix well until a soft dough forms. 

3. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface. If the mixture is still sticky, add a little more flour. 

4. Cut dough into 4 equal-sized pieces. Using your hands, gently roll each piece out to form a log about 2cm wide. Using a lightly floured knife, cut each log into 1.5cm-long pieces.

5. Roll each piece of gnocchi over a fork and pressed gently with another fork to form a dent in the back of each sides. This will help the sauce to cling to your cooked gnocchi. 

6. Bring water to a boil. Add the gnocchi into the boiling water. The gnocchi will rise to the surface of the water once cooked. Continue cooking the gnocchi for 30-60 seconds then remove from the water and drain well.

7. Melt butter in a pan on medium heat. Sauté garlic. Toss cooked gnocchi until slightly toasted. Put salt and pepper to taste. Add basil leaves and remove from heat. Transfer to a plate and sprinkle with parmesan cheese and garnish with lemon (optional).

Choose Better and Eat Better with COOP Fresh’s All-Natural and Organic Selection

Over the past year, there has been a stronger preference for everything healthy and, naturally, it has led us to rethink our standards of what is good for us. Health is wealth and it can be achieved in even the smallest ways, like the food we eat. Recognizing this uptrend for healthier and cleaner options, online specialty grocer COOP Grocer has introduced its own line of all-natural and organic products: ranging from meat, seafood, fruits, vegetables, and ready-made food. Aptly called COOP Fresh, each item guarantees your food is non-GMO certified and was made with no growth hormones, preservatives, antibiotics, or pesticides. Additionally, all products are locally farmed from prime agricultural sites in Cavite, Laguna, Ilocos Norte, and Palawan—and its produce is freshly harvested every week using only natural fertilizers. 

Fresh produce harvested every week using only natural fertilizers

By working directly with local farmers, COOP Grocer effectively eliminates the middleman. This allows the company to offer competitive pricing for its customers and easier access to all-natural and organic items. When you shop the COOP Fresh catalogue, customers are assured of nothing but pure healthy goodness.

“We promote the use of affordable fresh produce for your everyday meals instead of going for highly processed or instant food. We have local produce at really affordable prices as we go straight to the source, but we also offer all-natural options if you’re more conscious of what you eat,” said Meileen Chang, COOP Grocer’s Brand Manager.

Coop Grocer works directly with local farmers

Offering 100% organic or 100% all-natural selections, COOP Fresh sets a premium standard for all health-conscious shoppers who can now save time from scrutinizing the ingredients lists and nutrition charts. Certified organic products guarantee that the animals used were only given hormone- and GMO-free feed and raised in an open range, sustainable environment. Natural, on the other hand, means that products were made with only all-natural ingredients and contain no preservatives, artificial colors, and flavors. Specific to its meat and seafood, all-natural assures that no MSG, additives, chemicals, or extenders of any kind were added in the preparation process. 

“Organic and natural products are used by farmers who practice good agricultural standards. When we eat meat filled with hormones or vegetables sprayed with pesticides, it eventually takes a toll on our bodies, leaving us more prone to sickness and diseases. That is why COOP Fresh is a welcome change for customers of COOP Grocer who have started to embrace a healthier way of eating,” added Chang.

Moreover, through the COOP Grocer website and app, the company eliminates the common obstacles of convenience and accessibility that health-conscious individuals face. Simply browse its wide selection of products, choose what you want, and click the checkout button at the end in one fluid and harmonious step – all from the palm of your hand. 

With just a few swipes and clicks: you can enjoy a twist to your breakfast with all-natural cheese hotdogs, add some zest to your pork and chicken with organic pineapple slices, healthfully snack on hamburgers made with organic ground beef served with side of an all-natural cherry tomato salad, and top off every meal with a refreshing fruit smoothie made with natural cold-pressed frozen coconut milk.

Erin’s Place: Lutong Bahay Experience by Chef Nanay

Moms hardly get a day-off especially this quarantine period! We cook to fill our family’s tummies. We clean and sanitize everything 24/7. We became our kids’ teacher for now. We also risk ourselves whenever we go out to run errands. This is really tiring! As moms, we can complain and ask for help but for sure we’ll still end up doing everything because we want to and that’s what moms do. Haha!

Last Sunday, Chef Nanay treated me to a well deserved day-off by sending us a couple of my favorite lutong bahay dishes from Erin’s Place Restaurant.

The delivery was very prompt, I had scheduled it for lunch and the food arrived around 10:30am. Chef Nanay have their own delivery guy, too. No need to book thru a delivery/courier service. I have just enough time to take some photos! Now off to the taste test part. 😉

I got 5 of their delectable dishes. I was also surprised that it was so heavy when the delivery guy handed it over to me. I thought there was a mistake with the delivery. When I opened the brown bag I was really surprised to see how generous their servings are! They sent me food good for 6-10 people.

I tasted the Beef in Mushroom Sauce first since it’s one of my favorite dish. The beef was so tender! I can taste the creaminess of the sauce with bits and pieces of mushroom in it. Oh boy, I make this dish too but Chef Nanay leveled up the creaminess and buttery taste of it.

Beef In Mushroom Sauce

I then moved on to taste their Fried Chicken. They sent a whole chicken so imagine how happy Renz and Luke was. It was really a feast. Crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside. It was seasoned just right even with the breast part. Chef Nanay’s Fried Chicken is perfectly partnered with banana ketchup. Just like many Pinoy’s want.

Whole Fried Chicken

My tummy’s getting all filled up by now so I tried Chef Nanay’s Chopsuey. It was a mix of cabbage, carrots, baguio beans, bell pepper and pork. The vegetables was tender-crisp. I can still savor it’s crunch in every bite!

Chopsuey

Next up is Chef Nanay’s Dinuguan. The pork was really tender. The sweetness and sourness of the dish was balanced. Since one of the main ingredient of this dish is pork’s blood, I am very particular when it comes to the taste of Dinuguan. I didn’t taste any lansa at all.

And now my favorite: Salmon. Sinigang na Ulo ng Salmon. I love that I can taste the sourness of the Sinigang! The strong fishy taste of the Salmon was mellowed by the ginger bits I found in the soup. This dish has a really huge serving, 3 big salmon heads with lots of Kangkong.

Sinigang na Ulo ng Salmon

The verdict: Chef Nanay will bring back your memories of home! Lutong Bahay indeed! Since their servings were really generous I also shared and sent some food to my mom back home. They got to enjoy Chef Nanay’s delectable dishes too. I heard from a friend that their Barbeque and Chicken Inasal is superb too. We’ll try that soon.

Erin’s Place MENU
