Growing up I know I have three favorite dishes – Pinoy Sweet Style Spaghetti which I truly love because my mom add tons of hotdogs, Sinigang na Baboy (Pork Sour Soup) and Fried Chicken.

My folks were also heavy meat eaters when they were younger. Mostly, they would prepare dishes like Menudo (diced pork with carrots and potatoes in a rich tomato sauce), Nilagang Baka (slow cooked Beef with lettuce, onions and potatoes) and Adobong Baboy (Pork Adobo cooked in a complimenting blend of soy sauce and vinegar with tons of garlic). Seafood such as mussels, squid, crabs, lapu-lapu, shrimp and prawns were prepared during special occasions.

As years went on and I took over the household and our daily menu, my food preference changed. I still love Pinoy Sweet Style Spaghetti, Sinigang na Baboy and Fried Chicken but seafood has greatly been added to our menu. Not only does it help with a better digestion as my parents get older, but it is healthier and easier to cook.

Shrimp is one of my favorite ingredients whenever I prepare my menu. Readers of this food blog know how much I adore shrimps and prawns. It is also one of the easiest seafood dishes to prepare. If you’re like me who juggles numerous hats, your priority is to feed your family with easy to cook dishes without suffering the taste and health benefits out of every meal.

Allow me to share with you my collection of shrimp recipes here at Eat To Your Heart’s Content. After all, May 10 is the National Shrimp Day. Let me help you celebrate with this RECIPE ROUND UP : SHRIMP ALL-YOU-CAN.

Have you experienced an intense craving of a certain dish, dine at the nearest restaurant near your office or home and end up disappointed? Disappointed that you felt short-changed for paying a hefty price but the taste was not even near the vicinity of saying the dish was good.

Heck, you can’t even say it was okay!

I’ve had several occasions when I dine out, mostly to eat pasta dishes and end up disappointed. The promise of an authentic Italian cuisine, were all just a promise. Of all the many restaurants I have been to, I only have about five of my favorite restaurants offering good and I mean delicious pasta dishes but some that makes you go over your daily budget.

Now if I have a pasta craving and needs to stay on a budget, I whip up an easy to create pasta dish. Whether I will devour this with my family or bring home to work to share with my colleagues, it is comforting to know that the dish I created won’t fail me.

Allow me to share with you this Easy Recipe : Creamy Shrimp Linguine Pasta, using the freshest shrimp you can find, this delicious pasta recipe is a sure winner. No disappointments. No promises. Just simply delicious!

 Recipe Round Up Grilled Cheese Sandwich Eat To Your Heart's Content

Every day is a celebration of food. I am not just saying that because I LOVE food (isn’t it obvious?! Lol) Every day is practically a food day on a certain state, country or worldwide. There are also national food months. These food celebrations occur when an individual, a company or an organization chooses a certain food or ingredient and creates a campaign, which is then picked-up by others and goes viral. To make a food day or month official, certain laws on a particular country must be processed. Once everything is in order, a national food month or day is celebrated.

For the month of April, aside from the fact that we celebrate the National Food Month, it is also the National Pecan Month (and day on the 14th) and National Soft Pretzel Month (plus National Pretzel Day on the 26th). As for food days, National Sourdough Bread day celebrated last April 1, National Cheeseball Day on the 17th and National Blueberry Pie Day on the 28th.

Apart from those food days mentioned, two of my favorite food celebrations in April are the National Grilled Cheese Month and Grilled Cheese Day on the 12th. Yes cheese lovers, this is for us.

What is it with cheese that makes every dish so comforting? Don’t you just drool when you see melted cheese once you slice a perfectly grilled sandwich?

Allow me to heighten your cheese craving and make you drool even more as I share with you some downright delicious creations by fellow food bloggers and a bonus recipe (so don’t stop scrolling and reading okay?). Here’s a collection of cheesy goodness, RECIPE ROUND UP : GRILLED CHEESE SANDWICH and let’s celebrate the National Grilled Cheese Month and devour them to your heart’s content. (Let’s do the happy tummy dance!)

April 1, 2016


For the past few weeks, the temperature in this side of the globe has been extremely rising. My weather app has registered a whopping 96°F to 98°F. I have been gulping ice water – I keep my water bottle frozen over night which I bring to work and I am not even half way through the day, the frozen water is just ... water and not so cold anymore. That is how hot each day has been.

To beat the heat, I enjoy a variety of ways from a simple chocolate fudge sundae, smoothie, freshly made gelato, frozen yogurt, ice cream cake and the iconic Pinoy layered dessert Halo-Halo.

If you’re searching for summer indulgences to beat the heat, look no further. Stay glued, it’s Chill Time here at Eat To Your Heart’s Content.
