About Us

Why do we have this blog.

We’ve always wanted to journal our adventure in our own small space online and I think this is worth a try.

So, here we are.

Who we are.

Let me introduce ourselves…

Hello!, We are the Spadings. My name is Josie, my husband Mark and our precious daughter Marquita. We welcome you to our blog, ZestyOutdoors!

I’m from Manila, Philippines and he’s from Iowa, USA. We met online and that was the start of our  East meets West love story.

He is  a 21st century hunter/gatherer. LOL. Seriously, He loves to hunt, fish, mushroom hunting and gardening, providing food for our table from mother earth. Me, a city girl who finally find life away from the hustle and bustle of a big city. I’m a System Developer by profession and Web Designer enthusiast. And of course our daughter Marquita,  our miracle and our life. We praise God everyday for giving us this precious child

Though we may not be the best and expert in this field, We are excited to share our passion. Our goal is to inspire you of what God has in store for us even in small little things in  life has to offer. We’ll keep in touch with you through our post about hunting, fishing, our own recipes of what we hunt and fish and a lot of multi-cultural cuisine we’ve learned from experience

We hope that you will try our recipes and we absolutely LOVE hearing from your stories too.

Thanks for visiting friends.



Mark,Josie and Marquita
