|Pancit Canton Guisado|
I can't believe that November is almost over. It's almost four months since I started experimenting in the kitchen. Not that I do not know how to cook, I do. Only when I came to America, my opportunity exploded into a thousand different proportion that I do not really know where to start, so I just have to deal with what I can and with what I have.

Another one of my low carb dishes, and still on the budget end. I tend to mix a lot of vegetables when I am on budget mainly because it is inexpensive, and a good low go for low carb followers.
Enough about the chit-chat, here's the recipe. It's as easy as one, two, three. Let me know how yours turned out.

A good chicken soup isn't only best served for the sickly and faint. It's a hearty meal, healthy and light. One serving is a meal in itself, well unless you want something added to it. Another good thing about this recipe is that it is under $ 10.00 and you still have plenty of left-overs for the next day.
This recipe is quite versatile in what greens you want to put in. There's a wide variety of vegetable to choose from

|Ginisang talong sa alamang - Sauteed eggplant in shrimp paste|
November became a budget month for me. Times are tough and so is my budget, but that doesn't stop me from serving healthy meals even on a tight budget. I still stay low carb and that's most important.
I am sharing this Filipino dish that I really liked, this is very good if you are fond of Asian recipes. I like the salty taste of this recipe.

|Turkey Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus|
This is the first time that I made a bacon-wrapped asparagus and it was mighty yummy! Next time though I will be sticking with using a pork bacon for flavor purposes, but this turkey-bacon is just fine. You should try this for yourself.

|Pork chop with sauteed zucchini|
This is fast and relatively easy to prepare. You can marinate the pork in advance or just prep it up with a little bit of salt and pepper and you are good to go.

|Salt and Pepper Shrimp|
I have not been able to post as much lately, as much as I want to. Things are getting crazy out there!
Okay now, I was hungry, I need a quick fix of quick food, and all I have in the fridge are jumbo shrimp and chicken? Now, what am I going to do with that? Salt and pepper shrimp!
The salt and spiciness drives the spike out of this recipe. It was just too good, my mouth waters as I type along the ingredients for this recipe.

|Bacon Wrapped Crusted Jalapeño Poppers|
Okay, so I suddenly had this urge to eat something really spicy, and I was eying the jalapenos at the counter top which I had for days...I have read about jalapeno poppers and they said that it's quite good so I decided to make a go for it, and...TA DAHHH! It was sooo good that I made a second batch the next day, only the I didn't make it with crust and I prefer it that way. Either way is good but I liked the one without the crust better. I didn't know it was that heavenly, I should have tried it sooner!

|Low Carb Chili|
*UPDATE: I replaced the picture posted here guys, this one looks more like it.
Ever since I got to taste the chili, I found myself craving for it more and more. Like say, every week. I REALLY LOVE IT! The only beef I have with it is the beans. Since I am following a low carb lifestyle, I looked over the internet for some good substitute for beans. I found one that suggested to use celery stalks. Well, I tried it and it was very good! I don't even miss the beans in it. It was cooked to that spiciness that I like, and it's low carb. PLUS factor? It was raining and cold outside. Good to eat it facing the window. Ahhh...just pure heaven.
Oh, please don't mind the picture...that's the only 'better' looking shot that came out. BUT I bet the taste isn't just better, it's VERY GOOD.

I prepared this tonight because I wanted to just re-heat it for tomorrow, I guess somebody just couldn't wait for tomorrow to come because it's almost halved now. Tsk.
The marinating time takes longer though. BUT TOTALLY WORTH IT! It's also low carb by the way.
|This dish can serve as an appetizer or light meal. I am not a big fan of eggplants, but I decided to try this one because after all, cooking for me, is all about adventure, good food and good health.|
|Arroz Caldo Con Pollo|
My mom is kind of sick the day I made this, so I thought that I would make her a chicken soup, chicken soup with rice. It is particularly known as lugaw in my country, Philippines.
This is a very hearty meal, and is really good for the sick, AND not to say, COLD WEATHER! The good thing about this kind of recipe is that, you only have to put everything inside the pot, stir, wait for it to get done and serve.

The start of November is kind of lousy for me, I haven't been cooking much, and I haven't been uploading my long-waiting-on-the-list recipes. That doesn't mean that I will stop cooking, discovering and sharing new recipes, though. I still have a long way to go for my goal, and I kind of like what I am getting myself into.

|Picadillo or Giniling|
In the Philippines, this is one of the popular dishes prepared among the Filipino people, we call this recipe, "giniling" or grounded. You can use a variety of meat for this recipe, I have seen people who used lamb, beef, chicken, and turkey. Several ingredients can be added or substituted, but for me, I like to keep it simple and as much as possible, less oil. So here's my recipe for you:
