I finished reading my regular blogs and every time I visit stephenfung.net, I end up feeling hungry and longing for some tasty treats, so you can say that it was Stephen Fung that inspired me to do this post.
Ok the reason that I am such a great cook (so I have been told repeatedly; it’s not just my own conceit speaking), is for two reasons: I love good food and I am self taught. If there is a particular dish that I like to eat, I teach myself to cook it. And there is this incredible resource which gives you every recipe you can possibly dream of and that is the World Wide Web. For years now, I have not bought a recipe book; simply because any recipe that I want I can find on the internet free of charge! And the really good thing is that you can browse by cuisine, calorie, snacks, desert, main course or just about any criterion.
So you have the weight watchers recipes, some nice saliva inducing ones here, which even includes a pizza recipe! Then they have a point system which helps you calculate what is your daily allowance and how to keep within that in order to lose weight.
Here as well I found some very delicious looking and healthy recipes, including, whole-wheat wraps, sprout sandwiches etc., but I kept feeling that something was missing. I soon realized what it was that was missing: meat. It is a vegetarian site so be warned. There are some useful resources here about baby food, a calorie counter, info about how much fat you need to consume and why, so good site all in all.
If I were asked to pick my favorite cuisine, it would have to be Italian and Chinese, I can’t choose. I loved this Italian food site, with its main coursed, soups, breads, cakes and yes I really recommend their chocolate mousse recipe: tried, tested, tasted and digested!
I thought this was a good comprehensive Chinese recipe site, well subdivided into the different meats, salads, soup, rice, noodles, dim sum, sauces and marinades etc. I am so inspired with all this reading about every imaginable recipe, that I am just heading to the kitchen to whip up some hot and sour soup which sounds really delicious!
