Hello everyone! I am writing you from Manila, Philippines. Yes, it is good to be back in my native land to see good old friends and good old places, and of course the new places as well. Boy, does Manila have anything new? Are you kidding me? The city is in constant evolution. Perhaps we will get to that as I blog from here. But first, ever wonder why Filipinos bring boxes instead of Samsonites?

Here's a quick meal that I would like to dedicate to all Catholics out there. If keeping your "no meat Friday" is a challenge, here's a quick and delicious alternative to help you fulfill your religious duties.

As Veggie Girl had mentioned, she and I are on a quest toward healthier eating. Though I don't aim to be a vegetarian, I am trying to minimize my consumption of meat and have more veggies in my diet. Here's a quick salad dish I made up, and it's what I had for dinner tonight.

Shepherd's Pie is one of those comfort foods that'll warm your soul but could really stick to your ribs at the same time. Anyone who loves meat and potatoes will enjoy Shepherd's Pie because it's essentially ground meat and some mixed veggies topped with a layer of mashed potatoes and baked until golden brown on top. My family loves Shepherd's Pie but since I'm on a quest to shed some weight, I thought, why not make a lighter and healthier version that everyone will still enjoy?

I recently bought a new kettle/teapot and I've been in tea heaven! I love tea and I used to have an old metal kettle which started rusting, believe it or not, so I went shopping on Amazon and saw an awesome glass kettle. It now doubles as both my kettle and teapot (since I prefer loose tea) and I've been sipping tea all day long on a daily basis this week.

Hello again! This blog has officially made a come back. The last time we had a post here was sometime towards the end of last year and it's hard to believe several months have already gone by and we're now in the new year! Well, seeing as how it's a new year, what better time to tackle our resolutions than now? A big one of mine is to lose some weight and drop some pounds which I've accumulated over the years. Apparently GG also has the same goal so we're planning to refocus the content on this blog on healthy eating and weight loss management.

Take the guesswork out of chili and do this simple recipe. This is just far better than the ones you buy from a can. It's quick and simple and it's made from "semi-scratch."

Let me start by saying that this post does not contain fancy Thanksgiving photos of lovely table settings or decorated platters of food or any of that. It's merely a quick recap of a simple Thanksgiving dinner which I cooked for the most part, despite feeling really sick and tired. And when the time came to eat, the fam was so hungry, they had no patience for food decoration, props or fancy photography so brace yourself, the food pics in this post can best be described as "rustic". :)
