FOOD FINDS: El Mateo's Mixed Berries Chia Spread

El Mateo's Mixed Berries Chia Spread is a delightfully delicious and nutritious spread that you can put on top of toast, crackers, scone, cakes, and even ice cream. Haha, no kidding, I love experimenting when it comes to food.


This berries and chia spread is quite addicting with the right balance of tart and sweetness. And since its the Holiday Season, this bottle is the perfect companion on your festive table or better yet, you can share this with family and friends.

Aside from Mixed Berries Chia Spread, El Mateo also offers other equally delicious spreads: Salmon Pate Spread, Cheese Pesto Spread, and the mean Chilicioso if you are hankering for something hot.


Cheese Pesto Spread. This is more on cheese than pesto so even kids will love this spread. I guess this can be perfect on pasta also but you need several bottles.


Salmon Pate Spread. This is another favorite because it is a creamy salmon pate spread that you can slather generously on your toast or crackers. Perfect if you are having a cocktail party at home, or when you feel like having a gourmet snack.


Chilicioso. Okay, I have to admit, I chickened out and haven't tasted this one yet. Just by the look of it, I know its going to be hot, hot, hot so I am saving the bottle for my friend who keeps on posting photos of dishes with tons of chilis.



El Mateo Spreads can be ordered by Facebook: El Mateo Deli.

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

RECIPE: TKG's Brownie Balls with Cointreau Infused Cranberries

We may still be quarantined inside our homes but that doesn't mean we have to let go of our love for food. And if there's something positive that happened in our new normal, I'd say that most people (including me) have discovered the simple joys of spending more time in the kitchen. Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.
