Easy Apple Streusel Muffins Recipe

This is really delicious recipe to make and eat. It's very simple and quick to bake, which makes it perfect for a mid morning snack or afternoon treat! Depending on what apples you use you might get a different flavour. I like to use green apples most of the time, because they have a sharp taste and stay firmer than other types of apples. You are welcome to use any type of apple you like, but I would avoid using cooking apples, as these disintegrate completely when you bake them.

There are obviously regional variations in the herbs and spices depending upon what is ...

Thai Green Prawn & Coconut Soup Recipe

This soup is one of my favourite Thai dishes to make. It's the ultimate comfort soup, which is also filling enough to be a meal on its own. I'm always amazed at the skills that you need to make traditional Thai food. I'm just a home cook that enjoys cooking food inspired by other cultures, but it must be pretty amazing to learn how to prepare all these complex dishes like a professional, especially if you can study at authentic cookings schools such as Thai Chef School in Bangkok. Another reason why I like Thai food is the variety of fresh ingredients that make the whole dish taste so fresh and full of flavour. To make sure your Thai food taste good always use as many fresh ingredients as you can find in your local shop. Rather ...

How to host a dinner party

So, if you are anything like me, this blog is for you! I hope it helps you to plan your next dinner party and the whole event is a big success! Choose your menu carefully As tempting as it sounds, I would always advise choosing dishes that you've made before, rather than choosing new or elaborate recipes with lots of complicated ingredients.

Remember, ...
