A year on and I fancy talking less!
Ok, I’m back! Wow, it’s been a busy few weeks with cookery classes and The Olympics! I have actually been posting recipes, just not had the desire to blog, would you believe?!
August sees me not only celebrating a 13th wedding anniversary but also my one year of blogging. It’s actually quite interesting to see the road I’ve travelled compared to the plan I had when I first started out, with all the challenges, etc that I’ve participated in.
The idea behind this website was to set up an online cooking club amongst my friends by posting recipes. Somewhere along the line, I got more involved in the actual blogging world with its various clubs and challenges. While I’ve enjoyed the experience, I must say for the most part I’m going to go back to the original idea of mainly posting recipes. Quite often, I find my recipes collecting because I haven’t got the time or the inclination to blog and at other times, I just don’t have anything to say! So, you might find me posting less frequently but each time with 2 or 3 recipes like I used to when I first started out. Or maybe not!
I’ve been running cookery classes for children during the school holidays for a year or so now and these summer holidays were no different with each week devoted to a different type of cuisine/course. We had a lot of fun doing Thai, Desserts and Italian.
So, I’m listing 3 of the recipes we covered in Thai week – the Prawn Cakes, Green Rice and Chicken Tom Yum (recipe link in the next post) are dishes I created about a decade ago when I ran my first Thai Cookery Classes, because I wanted something more to the usual Pad Thai, Red curry, etc. While you don’t get Thai sausages here, they are very common in Thailand and the recipe here is my idea of what should go into making a Thai sausage! As usual, click on the individual recipe to go to the recipe page.
So, if you fancy something original, have a go at these recipes, the Prawn Cakes make perfect finger food.
Catch you all real soon,
