My Top 10 Favorite Recipes Of 2015


My Top 10 Favorite Recipes Of 2015

Xmas gone. New Year party done.

Thank you 2015. Halo 2016!

2015 was a memorable year, despite the many ups and down.

5 memorable events in 2015

  1. My first Buzzfeed feature. It was HUGE for me!
  2. Moving back to the old house.
  3. New kitchen cabinets! Always wanted them!
  4. Starting a new forex managed account.
  5. One of the BCF (best cousin forever) going off to Ireland for further studies while another one got married.

I am glad that the cousin came back from Ireland for a break and all 5 of us still got to be together for our Christmas cum New Year party. SO glad that the tradition continued. 

Two days ago, my friend was asking “so what is your new year resolution?” I was tempted to say “I would probably keep it at 1280×1024 like always” but I didn’t want to sound dumb.

If I were to write a letter to my new year’s resolution. It would most probably look like this.


Well, me and New Year resolutions, we have never got along well for long. It is such a short-lived relationship. ↓ Resolutions When I said drink more, I meant drink more water. I just realized that the list above makes me sound like I am a drunkard in the making! I am trying not to get upset over my absurdly unattainable New Year resolutions every year. Well, it’s the time to start again. Time to forget what happened in 2015, time to learn from the past mistakes and try to make a better 2016 right?

2015 was definitely not all bad, especially when it came to cooking and baking. I came across some new recipes that I loved immensely.  So here are My Top 10 Favorite Recipes Of 2015 among the 75 recipes that I shared in 2015. Drumrolls  pleasseeee….

ONE: Thai coconut chicken soup

What do I say about this recipe besides the fact that I have cooked it 101 times in 2015. This is officially a favorite in the household and I have not seen a single person not liking it. Be it chicken, prawns or even a mix of seafood. Everything just works with this recipe. The soup is the star. Sweet, sour and spicy, what’s not to love?

TWO: Best Salmon with Avocado Salsa

By the way, what is your hope for 2016? In 2015, I asked God for a fat bank account and a thin body. I am worried that if I ask the same, he might mix these up like he did last year. So for this year, I just hope for good health, happiness and success for myself and my loved ones. Oh yeah, and world peace too! *gives the miss universe wave*
