“Enjoy!”, that’s how I always end my posts, reminding you to not just enjoy the food, but relish the tiresome, yet satisfying moments in the kitchen as well.

My mission when I started this blog was to share my love for food through good recipes and I’m happy that I am able to do that. Thank you for joining me in discovering great food and wonderful recipes.

Cheers to 4 years of great food, and cheers to  4, 40, 400 years more!!!

Hey friends! Sorry I’ve not been updating this blog for the past few weeks. Just busy with work, then went on a quick vacation for some R&R.  No worries though, I’ll be posting some great recipes soon!

And speaking of birthdays, watch out for my next post…

Pinoy-style Spaghetti puts the classic (read: boring) tomato-basil sauce to shame. This particular pasta sauce uses sugar (lots of it!), banana ketchup, ground beef, ham, and lots and lots of sliced hotdogs!!! It is then topped with a generous serving of grated cheese!

Still smokin’

Hi Friends!

I’m really sorry for being out of the blogosphere these past few weeks.

I’ve been busy with work and with my sister’s wedding preparations. Now that the latter’s over and done with, I only have the former to worry about 😛

I still have lots of recipes and blog posts stacked in the drafts section that still need some modifications. Also, this coming 2012, I have some new things happening in this blog, so watch out for that too 🙂
