I’m back! I took a few much needed weeks away from blogging to focus on end-of-term papers and such. Feels wonderful to wrap up the last of my courses, well, until September that is.
But enough about school, I’m very excited to have the opportunity to return to the topic of food! You may remember that I’ve been blogging recently about the Thai Culinary Adventure class I attended at Relish Cooking Studio.
- Goog Kratiem (Garlic Shrimp)
- Tom Yum Goong (Hot and Sour Soup)
- Som Tam (Green Papaya Salad with Peanuts and Cilies)
- Pad Thai
This is my last post from this class. However, I attended a second class and have many more fantastic recipes to come!
Today, I’m excited to share their dessert recipe! I’ve mentioned this before, and I’m sure it’s not the last time I will mention this, but I’m not a huge fan of sweets. Which means I will usually pass by a dessert, or enjoy the obligatory small serving. I’m excited about sharing today’s recipe because it’s one that I enjoyed, it’s sweet, but not too sweet. Also, it’s simple to prepare (albeit a bit time consuming) and I can actually picture myself making this at home.
