The Green Lantern Kreme Doughnut

Krispy Kreme Introduces The Green Lantern Kreme Doughnut
I finally tried it last night after watching The Green Lantern movie, and i I loved it. I loved it so much I had three in one sitting!

The Green Lantern Kreme Doughnut is Krispy Kreme’s version of the comic book classic made of rich chocolate dough, smothered with Hershey’s milk chocolate icing, doused with confectioner’s sugar and topped with a dollop of green jelly. Sounds good right?

If you haven’t tried it yet, grab one or even a dozen, and get in on The Green Lantern craze. This limited edition doughnut is available only from June 3 to July 10.


I love buro! I sometimes eat it everyday, with fried fish, eggplants and steamed okra.

Buro is made of fermented rice with fish or shrimps, and originated from Pampanga. It is sauteed in oil with garlic, onions and tomatoes and served as a condiment to grilled and fried fish, fresh mustasa (mustard greens) and fried or steamed eggplant and okra.

Argentina Canned Cuisine Chef's Series

I can’t talk enough about the versatility of corned beef! This canned food can be used in a multitude of dishes. I’ve used it in soups, pastas, sandwiches,… it just goes on! Check out how I used it in this dish. While I do prefer a particular foreign brand because of it’s texture, I do find that local brand Argentina’s Gold Label Corned Beef is just as good.
