Eating My Way Around Salcedo Saturday Market


I've been a resident of Makati for a good 4 years already, but I still haven't explored that much! I love the idea of weekend markets, but my body seems to be unwilling and I always prefer to sleep in, who doesn't? I've been to Legazpi Sunday Market, but that was light years ago. So, armed with an alarm clock and 2 smart phones bombarded with alarms, I was sure as hell determined to wake up early on a weekend.

Creamy Sweet Potato Soup #HealthyEats


I've been bitten by the cooking bug lately, partly because dining out is costly but more so because I'm struggling with to keep my weight at an appropriate level. Well, what was I supposed to expect really? All that stress eating, add my sleeplessness and factor in my lack of physical activity and you have got a recipe for disaster! So, I've resorted to eating sweet potato to limit my rice and junk food intake. Sweet potato is good, but sometimes the good old boiling method gets a little too boring. So, I took it up a notch and made a hearty sweet potato soup and I swear, this soup's never boring.

No-Bake Mango Cheesecake with Oreo Crust
