Maple Glazed Porkloin & Pumpkin Hash with Sage  |

So where do you find your inspiration?

Oftentimes, I would find myself inspired by a new set of bowls or plates…

I’d find myself inspired by the sight, smell and texture of spices: Rosemary, Basil, Oregano, Cumin.. Oh I could just go on and on with the list of spices….

Always, I’d find myself inspired by people: peanutbutter, Ykaie, my mom and most specially, YOU {because I know you’re always visiting}.

I’d find myself inspired by a beautiful cup of coffee, sunshine and that slice of Kiwi in the fridge.

Yesterday, I got inspired by the scent of cinnamon and nutmeg…

Today, I got inspired by this recipe

In a way, it’s kind of telling me to add more vegetables — specially pumpkin or squash– in the dishes that I make. and it’s right, it coincides with my resolution of eating healthier this year. It also inspired me to  look for tender cuts of meat without fat which most likely you won’t find me doing…

Sometimes all it takes is a little nudge. I would like to try cooking with a different kind of squash next time…

    Try ko yan pag nabuhay na uli yung sage ko! Hehe. (Hinihintay kong mag-resurrect kasi mukhang nag-hibernate for the winter. Baka sakaling mabuhay uli sa Spring!)
