Homestyle 5 Treasure Soup.

There are not many Asian style soups that take my fancy as much as this one. Its thick and hearty; full of flavour and it brings back many comforting memories of home. This soup is an easy one-pot meal, and is what I crave when I am feeling under the weather or down with a cold. For a heartier meal I add glass noodles to the mix.

Spicy Chicken & Coconut Soup.

Had a craving for soup, but I didn’t want a broth … neither did I feel like having a heavy creamed soup. So I went fifty-fifty and devised my own version of Thai coconut curry soup. The ginger and lime leaves are so warming and refreshing all at the same time; the coconut milk gives it a creamy texture but not heavy. Perfect! A meal on it’s own, I must say.

Classic Brownies

Never made brownies for myself before … well I have but never successfully. Here I am using yet another Alton Brown recipe because I figured all his recipes should be fool-proof; after all he is who he is for a reason. I also made a second brownie recipe ~ Peanut Butter Brownies for all those peanut butter lovers.

The Maltese Muffin.

This is a recipe courtesy of the very honourable Mr Alton Brown, a self professed chef-geek-mad-scientist and T.V-show-icon. This dessert could not be any simpler to prepare, plus all the ingredients are all right there in your pantry already. So what are you waiting for? Go whip yourself up some of this decadence for you know that it can only be … “GOOD EATS!” (cue music).

These scrumptious little morsels are sure to be a hit with not only the kids but the guests at your next cocktail party as well.
