Posted on November 14, 2011 by in vegetables

Of all the curry recipes I use, this recipe for curry beans is my favorite meatless or vegetarian recipe. I feel so good when I make this, because although it has all the elements of comfort food which normally means it contains sugar or starch or some kind of fat, this recipe is super healthy, […]

Authentic Thai food – Tom Yum Goong

Posted on September 6, 2010 by in soups

Authentic Thai food places the emphasis on dishes that are quick to prepare but delivers on  bold aromatic tastes.

Spicy food is just what the doctor ordered for this blistering cold weather! Yikes, winter really has arrived with a dramatic bang and I love it! Spicy, but not blow-your-brains-out hot!

Coconut reminds me of summer, sunny beaches and a day sun tanning which, by the way, I haven’t done in years! Years ago, my sister and I went to Mauritius for a holiday and the first thing I ordered on arrival, was a coconut! Coconut, cut open at the top with a straw to drink […]

Grilled Chicken – I finally found the way to Soft, Juicy Grilled Chicken breasts.

When we grill chicken, I prefer the thighs and drumsticks or even the whole chicken as […]
