Free Krispy Kreme Doughnut from SM Supermalls App

SM Supermalls is bringing back its "Download & Win" in-app mobile game where users have a chance to win a box of 3 Original Glazed Krispy Kreme doughnuts everyday. Isn't that great? Also, it's fun because the game is in the form of a scratch card on the app. What's more, there are 100 winners everyday - more chance of winning for everybody.


So what do you have to do to win this sweet treat? Just download the SM Supermalls app from either Google Play or Apple Store, if you haven't already. You will then be prompted to sign up. You will receive a scratch card daily to see if you've won. And so you don't miss a chance, the app will send you daily reminder that your scratch card is already available. Don't worry if you don't win right away because you get a shot at this until June 30, 2016. I haven't won until now too, you know. Haha. Hoping I would get lucky, maybe tomorrow.



This promo was re-launched on April 30, 2016 after it ended on March. It was initially launched as part of SM Supermalls' 30th Anniversary - which also included giveaway prizes such as free mobile data, free Spotify, Facebook, Games, Unli-Call and Unli-text for the entire month of March.

The SM Supermalls Mobile App can be downloaded for free and loaded with other great features as well.

Slow Cooker Recipes: Like Restaurant Eating at Home + a Giveaway!


For a long time now, I've been fascinated by food prepared using a slow cooker or crock pot. Imagine, you just load all the ingredients in the pot and leave it for many hours while you do what you need to (at work or at home)? That's fantastic! And with its low temperature of slow-cooking, it's almost impossible to burn food with a slow cooker. That's just perfect for someone like me who tends to forget that something's cooking in the oven or stove. Haha.

Now, what's better than cooking with a slow cooker? Getting free slow cooker recipes, of course! Antares Press introduces this Slow Cooker Recipes for Beginners: 55 Fast and Easy Slow Cooker Recipes to Lose Weight Fast. It's available in ebook format so you can easily access the recipes through your smartphones, your computers, tablets or ebook readers. 

This recipe book is targeted for beginners so all the recipes are really easy and quick to prepare. I've gone through it to see which recipes I can actually cook and I was glad that most don't include those hard-to-find ingredients. Living in the Philippines, there are ingredients that are not readily available here or are too expensive. So yeah, that's definitely a plus for me.

Anyway, this Slow Cooker Recipes for Beginners ebook is going to be perfect for those people who are always on the go. Those people like me who needs to be able to prepare food in advance but still want to have restaurant-grade, tasty and nutritious food when mealtime arrives. 

For those looking for great ways to lose some weight, the recipe ebook is also packed with a variety of vegetarian recipes Ratatouille and Veggie Chili. There's even dessert recipes for the sweet tooth! Chocolate Mousse and Cheesecake are just two of the amazing desserts included.

Here's a couple sample recipes to get you started:

ITALIAN CHICKEN 
Serves: 6

Ingredients:
6 boneless skinless chicken breasts 
16 ounces Baby Portabella mushrooms, sliced 
1 packet dry Italian dressing mix 
1 cup white wine 
1 8-ounces package fat free cream cheese (room temperature)
8 ounces fat free chicken broth 
1 tablespoon butter 
2 teaspoons paprika 

Procedure:
In a medium sauce pan, melt butter then whisk in wine, chicken broth, dressing mix, and cream cheese until smooth. Place mushrooms and chicken in the bottom of a large slow cooker. Pour wine sauce over the chicken. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours.

CHEESECAKE 
Serves: 8

Ingredients:
4 cup low-fat chocolate or cinnamon graham cracker crumbs 
1 1/2 tablespoons butter, melted 
8 ounces reduced-fat sour cream, at room temperature 
8 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese, at room temperature
2/3 cup sugar 
1 egg, at room temperature 
1 tablespoon vanilla paste or vanilla extract 
1 1/2 tablespoons flour 
1 tablespoon lemon juice 
1 tablespoon lemon zest 

Procedure:
In a small bowl, mix together the graham cracker crumbs and butter. Press into the bottom and sides of a 6 inches springform pan. In a large bowl, mix the sour cream, cream cheese, sugar, egg, vanilla, flour, lemon juice, and zest until completely smooth. Pour into the springform pan. Pour 1 inch of water into the bottom of a 6-quart slow cooker. Place a trivet in the bottom of the slow cooker. Place the pan onto the trivet. Cook on low for 2 hours. Turn off the slow cooker and let the cheesecake steam for 1 hour and 15 minutes with the lid on. Remove the cheesecake from the slow cooker. Refrigerate 6 hours or overnight before serving.

I didn't even know you can make cheesecake using a crock pot. Now, that I wanna try one of these days. So there you go.
