Foodie Goodies

I’m craving for a very tasty meal…how can I get it home?

I believe we are all foodies of some sort- no matter the size of your appetite, I’m pretty sure there is that delicious meal which tickles your fancy and you’d give up all others just to have it. Thank God for TV and internet whereby we don’t only get to hear of good food but we also see it…and when you see it you know you want it!

Sometimes you run out of ideas on what to cook and especially when you get tired of having the same thing over and over: get a tip or two from some of the most creative food blogs I have ever come across…

When you take a peak, you’ll see the ingredients are pretty basic and you probably already stock them in your kitchen.

TIPS:

Don’t forget to Decorate

I always recognize, food is an ART, how you present it is so important, it can either lead one’s appetite on ten times over or throw it off altogether! I insist on creativity in everything; so after food is served, add some colour on that plate with a red tomato, a slice of carrot, a teaspoon of mayonnaise or a twig of dhania!

Food channels and Cook books

Food channels and cook books also come in very handy and you can pick up a thing or two as you prepare your meal.

I may have left out a couple of places where we could get good + affordable recipes, please share with us…
