As a working mom, food preparation and cooking has been a challenge for me. For one week menu, I normally setup the ingredients needed in my grocery lists every weekend. To take notes on my grocery lists and menu, I use my color note in my android phone and take photos of new recipes that I could follow as a cooking guide. With the launch of My Great Food website and mobile App by San Miguel Pure Foods (SMPFC), life in the kitchen for food lovers and cooking enthusiast has been lighter and yummier.
What is My Great Food? My Great Food is a consumer portal designed to provide food lovers with new and interesting recipes that can be easily done at home.
