My name is Joyce, author of Eat What Tonight. Spending time in the kitchen has been one of my greatest therapeutic passion thus far even though I couldn't do it on a more often basis than I wish I could. I do not prized myself as a great cook or baker, after all I am a one-woman show in the kitchen and blogging scene. Nevertheless, I hope this little space of mine can aspire anyone like myself to appreciate and enjoy the best of oneself's efforts in every single home made dish.
Although home-made soups does not belong to quick fix catergory, but with the creation of many effective home appliaces, tasty home-made soups can still be made available for busy working class people. Before I bought the slow cooker, I never had the chance to prepare any home-made soups. As we all know the longer soup is being simmered, the tastier it becomes. If I start to simmer the soup after I come back from work, by the time we manage to enjoy the meal, it would have become our late supper. Now with the slow cooker, all I need to do is to pour all the ingredients (prepared a day earlier) into the cooker in the morning before I proceed to work, and by the time I come back from work, there’s a great home-made simmering soup before mine eyes !
Health Tip : Watercress is abundant in vitamins A and C. An excellent source of iron and is believed to be effective in reducing phlegm.
