UI know a lot of you are waiting for a post about Industriya. I highly recommend this for events and those seeking a relaxing and sumptuous dining experience. The place is spacious, yet cozy, and the food tastes great! We celebrated my sister Rona's birthday there last week. :)

We were able to try their Seafood Thermidor pasta, Gamberetti pasta, Truffle Cream pasta, and I definitely would like for you to try the Industriya Pizza!! Salmon, anchovies, blue cheese, mozzarella on a perfect thin crust... What can go wrong? A dinner for two would cost about 500 up, depending on the orders, entrées would cost a little more of course. 

For the ambience and food, I would say it's worth the visit. Visit our Facebook page (All Over Marikina) for photos ofbthe menu. 

Shoutout to Allan and team who were amazing crew attending our table that night.

Address: 23 M.A. Roxas St., Marikina 
Tel. No. 904 8372
Familiar with the lovely Patio Vera restaurant? Follow that street and you will see Industriya at the corner. For those with cars, go around the bend and it will lead you to the entrance.

Now if you don't believe in overnight success, this homebaker will prove you otherwise! Khriz got in touch with me through the All Over Marikina Facebook page, and asked me to sample her products. One bite, and I was swept away!

Guess what, a few days later, she was booked for a morning show and has not stopped baking bulk orders since then! What an inspiration KHRIZ CRINKLES is!

"My name is Khrizel Molina and our brand name is Khriz Crinkles. I started baking only last July 2014. I retired from my work last May 2014 to give time for my child. I worked at Cathay Pacific Airways as Sales Executive for more than a decade.

"Since I have new priorities, so I needed to retire for my family. Our family loves to cook. We normally cook for our friends and family. One day I tried baking my favprite crinkles and it was a success! Then I studied several recipes for chocolate and red velvet until I perfected it. I tried selling it to my friends and family, and received good feedback."

"Unang Hirit featured us last September 2014. This really helped us specially with our target market, the Mariqueños. Before, I used to sell 30 tubs a week, now I am selling 100 plus tubs a week! Thanks Unang Hirit! Flavors available are plain Khriz Crinkles, Creamed Khriz Crinkles, Cookies and Cream, Khrofee (mocha flavored crinkles), and Nutee (Peanut Butter creamed crinkles)."

"Future plans? We have been receiving a lot of requests to put up shops in QC And Marikina area. Hopefully we can at least have one. We will be releasing several flavors soon like our Hazelnut Khriz Crinkles, Rock Salt and Cheese and Choco and Mint!"

Christmas is just around the corner and what better way to spread the holiday cheer than by sharing with you talented homebakers from our city! When you buy from them, think about how you will both have a better Christmas. You have helped a small entrepreneur, and you have delicious treats for your family and loved ones as well! I am kickstarting this series with SWEETS BY KALI. Kandice sent me a message through the All Over Marikina page about her creations. They were all yummy! Take a look at the photos below, and don't forget to like Sweets by Kali on Facebook, too!

Name / Nickname: Kandice Lei Santos (my relatives and childhood friends call me 'Precious')
Brand name: SWEETS BY KALI

Oreo Stuffed Cookies
Specialties / recommended products

"Chewy oatmeal bars, my mom's recipe that's passed on to me. My banana choco chip muffin is also a click to most of my consumers, and also the Red velvet crinkles with cream cheese which is sweet, soft and so chocolatey."

 Banana Chocolate Chip Muffin

Red Velvet Crinkles with Cream Cheese Filling

Do you have a day job aside from baking? Can you share a bit?
"I am a registered nurse here in the Philippines but after a year of practice, I flew to another country to study and work for almost 4 years. I came back last year, 2013. I didn't work since then but instead I helped my mom at home and took care of my cousin's kids. Until I started Sweets by Kali."

How long have you been baking goodies? What started the idea of being a homebaker?
"It all started with my mom's hobby of cooking and baking. And I always observe and look on what's she's doing in the kitchen. So she started teaching me, I think that was during my grade school days. Every time she bakes something, I always help her and that's how I also practice baking.

When I was away in another country, most of my Filipino friends and family friends craved for Filipino sweets. So I started thinking on baking and selling Filipino sweets to earn extra money, such as Leche flan, Brazo de Mercedes, puto, pichi-pichi, cassava cake, banana cake and special coconut macaroons, which were my bestsellers then."

 Chewy Oatmeal Bars

Brownie Fudge Bars

"After a year of not working, since I came back, my friend asked me if I can bake something like brownies and cookies for her friend's tea shop. So I didn't think twice as I really like to bake and to earn money at the same time. That was 16th of May this year, when 'sweetsbykali' was born. I am supplying them fudge brownies and chewy oatmeal bars once a week. I post pictures on fb about my sweets and had quick response from my friends and my sister's friends. As of now I have 5 resellers who sell my sweets in their offices and hopefully more to come! I also accept package orders for souvenirs and giveaways in weddings, birthdays and any event. The price of the package depends on the kind of sweet they like. The prices of my goodies are very affordable they only range from 100-150 pesos per tub. They are perfect for Christmas gifts that are suitable for your tight budget!"
