After a long day of wearing a suit, I came home and immediately got to work testing my first recipe for Steamy Kitchen's new cookbook. Today, it was a simple rendition of vegetable tom yum soup. It's tailored to people without access to ingredients you typically see in Thai food. I loved it. The balance of flavor is there, and I'll be making this in the future. It's an easy, cheap contender with what you sometimes get in a restaurant. You'll have to wait for the book to come out to see the recipe!
And sorry for the weird photos! Chalk it up to not being able to cook during daylight hours and having the most unflattering kitchen light. Add the fact that I'm 5'3" with a macro lens and no stepstool.
