Heading Home

Copyright 2012 LtDan'sKitchen blogs
The time has finally come to pass, again. I am going back on hiatus indefinitely. It will be much longer than the one I took last year since this time, I'm heading home for good. And by home, I mean the Philippines. I had a great run living in the US for about 15 years but it is finally time to go home. My decision was made not just for my Dad but also to do what I promised myself a long time ago, to give back and share what I learned in the US to the next generation of scientists back home. It is also time for me to go after my other passion which is cooking. I'm not sure in what capacity but it will be something I will have to figure out with the other cooks in the family, my cousin Estela and my Nanay Mercy.

It has been some time since I have been home but I know that the kitchen has to be remodeled to accommodate my more extensive culinary experience. This might be the major setback to my posting of new recipes but I'll try to post as much recipes as I can once I'm home. There will also definitely be a change in direction in terms of the recipes I post but I will try to strike a balance using recipes that will be easy to cook given the rarity of Asian ingredients in the US or Europe. I may have to find inventive alternatives for some of the ingredients but I promise that it will be delicious.

To all of you who have been following my blog, thank you for keeping me busy in the kitchen. You were all my inspiration. Just keep checking for updates and once settled, I'll try to get back into the swing of things. But for now, happy cooking and until next time!


  1. hey Dan, good luck on your new endeavor! for as long as you love what you're doing, it doesn't really matter where you are. if u don't mind, what field of science is your expertise and when did u graduate from UP? :)

  2. Carmel, I'm a batch 89 Chemistry major. And thanks for wishing me luck. From back home, I'm actually looking forward to showcasing Filipino food but in a different way that will appeal to everyone. Hopefully, this could be a start of a second career for me aside from teaching Chemistry. A few friends have told me I should publish a book with my recipes and I might just do that.

  3. well, why not? be sure to post it here when u publish a book :)
