Be a Shopwise Home Wise Mom!

When you're a busy mom, a trip to the grocery is not a chore, it's a getaway! Mommies like me enjoy walking through neatly-stacked aisles, thinking of what new dishes we can serve our families. That's why when you find that matches all your needs, from Papa Alfredo Olive Oil, Southdale Farm Butter, Sun Harvest Jam, Veneto Italian Water, Brewtime Tea, and Red Peak Australian wine and even Aquabliss, BacAttack and Vitapet at the sweetest deals, you know you've stuck gold.

This March, Shopwise and Mommy Mundo have partnered for our best grocery trip yet. Last Saturday (March 3), Shopwise HomeWise Moms' first leg happened at Shopwise Alabang. The event featured a cooking demo with Sabrina Go, author of and an empowering mom talks with Ms. Minnie Jumaquio, the mompreneur behind Snug-a-Hug. 

Sabrina Go shared new recipes; Adobo Sushi and Ube, Mango and Cheese Crepes.

Sabrina Go,

Adobo Sushi

For Japanese rice
     Rinse the Japanese rice and drain. Repeat until water runs clear.
     Cook in the rice cooker.

For Sushi Rice
     While Japanese rice is warm from the rice cooker, mix the cooked rice, sugar      and rice wine vinegar until rice cools.

For Sushi rolls
     Lay a nori wrapper on top of your bamboo mat. Get some rice and start patting it down gently on the nori wrapper, covering more than half of the wrapper, leaving a bit of space on the top part (away from you).
     Spoon some of the adobo creating a horizontal line an inch from the bottom of the rice layer.
     Take your bamboo mat from the bottom and roll like a cigar, making sure that the adobo is tucked in nice and neatly. Try to roll as tight as you can. Dampen the top sheet of your nori wrapper to seal your roll. Repeat
     Slice 1-inch thick pieces and top with garlic bits. serve with adobo sauce for dipping.

Ube, Mango and Cheese Crepes

     In a blender, combine flour, sugar, salt, milk, eggs and butter
     Puree until mixture is smooth and bubbles form on top, about 30 seconds. Let batter sit at least 15 minutes at room temperature (or refrigerate in an airtight container, up to 1 day; whisk before using).
     Heat a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium. Lightly coat with butter. Add 1/3 cup batter and swirl to completely cover bottom of skillet. Cook until underside of crepe is golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes.
     Loosen edge of crepe with a rubber spatula, then with your fingertips, quickly flip. Cook 1 minute more. Slide crepe out of skillet and repeat with remaining batter. (Coat pan with butter as needed)

For Ube-Mango filling
     Whip the cold cream cheese until loosened. Add the powdered sugar and ube extract, whipping until incorporated and smooth.
     Add the heavy cream and ube jam until light and fluffy.
     Carefully fold in small cubes of cheese and diced dried mangoes. Set aside and chill.
     Place Ube-mango filling in crepes, fold,top with fresh mangoes, dust with powdered sugar and serve.
