Mackerel and Spinach Adobo

Recently, I have made the conscious effort and decision to eat better. This is no small feat, as I barely have time to shop and cook (and blog it here) – and I refuse to eat anything that is labelled low-fat, low-calorie and whatever sugar free substitute is out there in the market.

Fried Whole Fish: Make It, Debone It & Eat It!

Growing up in Manila (Philippines), fried fish is usually on the dinner table. I loved having fried fish for dinner because this means that I can douse my rice pink with banana ketchup. As a child, I didnโ€™t know what fish sticks are, and I first learned about fish fillet from McDonaldโ€™s Fillet Oโ€™Fish Sandwich. … Continue reading
