Vietnamese Noodle Salad Recipe - Made Personal by SORTED

If, like Ben, you spend most days cooking, then when you finally get home you don't want to slave away in the kitchen... what you do want though is more grea...
Olive's insight:

I enjoy watching them cook because they always make it seem so effortless. I get stressed in the kitchen a lot, but seeing how they experiment with different ingredients, throwing whatever they like into the recipe and playing with flavours makes me feel like doing it too. I think the most important thing is not to feel scared and just have fun in the kitchen! This vietnamese noodle salad recipe has so many components involved, and it looks so tasty but still easy to make.

What better way to usher in a virtuous 2014 than to purge those guilty items and create an organized pantry full of healthful ingredients now?

I love cooking but I've also been trying to watch my diet. This list of healthy foods is really useful because the ingredients mentioned are generally versatile, and I am sure I'll be able to work my way with them into my food. For example, I can add Chia seeds when I bake a cake next time, or add seaweed into my soups or stews. Also, replace mayonnaise with avocado on my sandwiches, like what the article said.

Another dessert chef, but this dish is invented by the man himself, Stephen Jackson. The recipe looks quite difficult and technical. There are so many steps involved, and so much layering for a single dessert.

Olive's insight:

I really like this recipe because it involves so many different flavours, but still seems fairly easy to make. Although the salsa component only includes lime zest, I would add a bit of lime juice as well when I cook to give it an extra kick.
