What kind of food/ dish out there that is exotic and can be cooked at home?
Something with flavors, simple to make, cheap, and healthy
Well, I love Thai food and my favorite dish is Tom Kha Gai soup which I make quite often. It always looks harder to make than it is and is actually quite filling. It always impresses my friends and I don't even make it the traditional way at all. I change a lot of the ingredients but it works for me. There are few Asian markets where I live, so I learned to improvise.
I added a site for you to see it but there are other versions. The one I make is similar but I do not use Galangal. I use Ginger. I do not use Chili Peppers, I use Black Pepper and regular red peppers for color, sometimes yellow. I use Lemon Grass and instead of chicken thighs, I use breasts cut into small pieces. I do not use Lime juice, I use Lemon (I put in extra) and I do not use Lime Leaves at all. If only for the presentation, I will drop in a couple of Parsley leaves, which I know is so NOT Asian but it's only for the color and it smells nice.

Brown rice or wheat berries........add veg, shrimp, dried cranberries, almonds or walnuts or just cold with homemade vinegrette. Easy and satisfying. Exotic comes from whatever you add to call it your own! Herbs, spices, etc. I use fresh rosemary and thyme from my garden to add flavor. Happy cooking, rutley

How often do you prepare home cooked meals?These days it seems more and more people are going to the fast food restaurants. Cooking is becoming a lost art.

Do you eat out more than cook at home?Nothing is better than a home cooked meal, many people choose to eat out for convenience and miss that family time spent at the dinner table.
