Sweet Tooth Solutions with Microwavable Desserts

As Filipinos, most of us are born with a hefty palate. Food is a big part of our culture, and we all know how to appreciate a good feast. However, not all of us are blessed with the skill to be masters in the kitchen. The result? We often resort to buying takeout meals or ordering from trusty fast food chains.

But nothing beats homemade food, especially when it comes to desserts. The problem is that when we think of sweets, we always have this misconception that we need to slave hours in front of an oven just to make them.

Did you know that anyone can easily whip their own batch of sweets with just a bit of ingenuity and creativity? And no, you don’t even need to have an oven to make your own comfort food. Check out the desserts below and impress your loved ones with these easy to make recipes for times when your hunger pangs call for something fast and sweet.

Here’s a merienda kids and adults will love: for your very own French toast, whisk milk, egg, vanilla, and cinammon together in a bowl and soak slices of bread in the mixture. Using a microwavable plate, heat the slices on high setting for one minute. Garnish it with syrup for extra flair.

Need a quick and healthy dessert minus the elaborate prep? Do your own Sabang Saging in a minute with your microwave oven. Take two raw bananas and prick them with a fork before washing and wrapping them with paper napkins. Pop them in the microwave and cook for a minute or until the sides turn soft.

Midea’s microwave oven can help you create these desserts minus the hassle of a long cooking time. Designed to promote healthy cooking, it retains nutrients in food and lets you cook in seconds.

Worried that you might rack up on electricity bills while whipping up your own sweets? The microwave has the piso meal guarantee, which means you pay a peso for every three minutes of cooking. It’s the perfect addition to your kitchen especially when cravings are high but time is limited.

EMBOA: Handog Pasasalamat, a Christmas Thanksgiving


Queue in Christmas music: “Malamig ang simoy ng hangin, kay saya ng bawat damdamin…” Brrr.. Lumalamig na ang klima, sumisiya na ang kapaligiran at ramdam na din ang diwa ng Kapaskuhan. Christmas is indeed in the air!

At dahil Pasko na, panahon na din ng regalo, caroling, simbang-gabi, get-togethers at thanksgiving. Sabi nga “Bless to be Blessed” o “Blessed to be a Blessing”. Masaya mamahagi ng biyaya na syang ginawa ng samahang EMBOA (Ermita Malate Business Owners Association) nun nakaraang Huwebes.

December 17, 2015 (Thursday), Remedios Circle, Malate“Maligayang Pasko, Handog Pasasalam ng EMBOA”, Hindi matatawaran ang kasiyahan naidulot ng pag-awit ng Christmas Carols ng Philippine Women’s University (PWU) Choir at pag-indak ng mga Universidad De Manila (UDM) Dancer sa entablado. Hindi rin maitatago ng may tinatayang 500 kabataang kapus palad (edad 7-12 años) ang kanilang mga ngiti ng mabahagian ng gift bags mula EMBOA, lokal na pamahalaan ng lungsod ng Maynila at iba pang pribadong sektor.



Ayon kay Michelle Pe (EMBOA President) ang gift giving at simpleng Christmas production nun ay pamamaraan nila upang magbigay ng pasasalamat sa 16 barangay na naging katuwang ni EMBOA na muling ibalik ang dating sigla at ganda ng Ermita, Malate.

“This Christmas Season, we wanted to share joy, love, happiness, and peace to the people most especially to the less fortunate kids. We want them to know we care for them, same as we care a lot for the development of Ermita, Malate.”

– Michelle Pe –



Dumalo din sa pagdiriwang si Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada at nagpaabot ng pasasalamat sa mga kasaping barangay at nangako sa mga residente at negosyante ng Ermita na maasahan nila ang ayuda ng lokal na pamahalaan hingil sa kanilang mabuting layunin.

Samantala, inaasahang magdaraos at maglulungsad pa ng samu’t saring proyektong kapayapaan at pagpapaunlad ang EMBOA sa darating 2016 ayun sa layunin nilang maibalik ang ningning ng Ermita, Malate.

Beaucoup D’amor,
