How many of us stick to a few tried and tested recipes? Cooking for friends, I decided to try a few new recipes.
Two desserts to try
From Oh! you cook! and on my pinterest board I tried Fruit salad with a honey and lime dressing. This was very easy and quick to prepare. Only three fruits and looked and tasted good.
From Ken Homs' travels with a hot wok, a new take on fruit crumble . I used mango and raspberry for the fruit and less sugar than suggested. The magic ingredient is to add dessicated coconut to the crumble topping. Served hot with vanilla custard , this was delicious. One of my friends had 3 helpings!
From Malaysia Kitchen USA I tried
Mango Salad, Char kway teow noodles and coconut milk and seafood soup all of which were enjoyed by my friends. I especially loved the soup and will add that to my repertoire of favourite recipes along with the coconut crumble.
