Really cute, ready to give boxed sets that have everything you need to grow your own herbs and flowers. And all for a good cause as the proceeds go towards helping the communities served by Hands On Manila volunteers.

The single plant kit comes in BASIL or SUNFLOWER.

The garden kit is comes with 4 plant sets. The PIZZA garden kit has: basil, tomato, hot pepper and arugula. The FLOWER garden kit has: sunflower, zinnia, marigold and dwarf sunflower.

Everyone asks if the seeds will really sprout – yes they do! The box comes with easy to follow instructions to help bring out your inner green thumb. They work for condo dwellers too – just put the pots by a sunny window sill or a balcony, if you have one.

Hope you enjoy these! For orders call +63 917 855 8514 or 843 7044

Happy Holidays from all of us at Hands On Manila!

Naan Bread

By | Yummy! | No Comments

 Thank you to Chef @ndelarama for this tip!! Naan bread which is imported and in the frozen bread section of @rustansfresh  It’s so easy to heat ! From freezer just heat in pan and it will rise. I got the one with garlic and butter but you can get it plain and put your own garlic and butter. I even make it like pizza I add toppings :-)  If you want it crispy you need to toast it in toaster after heating in the pan. Yum yum #rustanssupermarket#h2hrustanssupermarket #h2hrecipesNaan Bread (1) Naan Bread (2)

The Finest Rum Butter Cake from Flour Pot

 The Finest Rum Butter Cake from Flour Pot

                Rhea Castro-Sycip has been baking since she was eight years old. “It was my aunt who introduced me to it.  She gave me a stove top steam oven, more of a pan, actually. I started with coconut macaroons and just followed the recipe at the back of the desiccated coconut pack,” she fondly recalls. That experiment was followed by baking lessons with Heny Sison and Dorothy Ferreria.

Chef Rhea Castro-Sycip

                “Techniques wise, I learned a lot from Jill Sandique and took classes with her when I was 15,” relates the Communications graduate of University of Santo Tomas who later took formal culinary education at De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde and Le Cordon Bleu Dusit.

                Encouraged by family and friends to turn her passion into business, she recently started to accommodate orders for some of her specialties. Topping the list is her signature Rum Butter Cake which took a year to develop. “I am very critical of my work. I want it to be perfect,” she says. The rich, golden ring-shaped treat is whipped up with free range eggs and artisan butter from Bukidnon then carefully soaked in rum sauce using local and premium small batch rum. Packed in a pine wood craft gift box that adds a huge wow, it definitely makes an impressive gift. It is available in two variants, plain original and nut crumble. There are two sizes to choose from, 7-inch bundt pan and 9-inch bundt pan.

                Other items on her menu are the Hummingbird Cake (spiced cake made from sun-riped bananas and fresh Tagaytay pineapples in light buttercream frosting),2-Tier Hummingbird Cake Strawberry Shortcake (light sponge cake with pastry cream, dressed with chantilly cream and topped with Benguet Shoga Strawberries),

Strawberry ShortcakeTres Leches Cake (yellow pound cake soaked in rich milk mixture), Malacanang Roll (sponge cake with dark chocolate ganache filling covered in boiled icing frosting), and On the Fence Brownies (chewy and moist, topped with roasted walnuts)

                “I love desserts but I do not enjoy them overly sweet. A lot of those who have tried my cakes say they love it because they can have another slice,” she guarantees.
