Here I am, so proud – I’m finally following my goal to cook more.

I’m no stranger to the kitchen. In fact, I bake on a daily basis.

But, guys, here’s the thing – I am notorious for ordering food – and so is my husband. After a long day, there’s nothing like having someone serve you a hot meal – or, in this case, bring it to your door.

However, ordering take-out was burning a hole through our wallets. Plus, it took away the fun in cooking together – an activity we loved doing pre-parenthood.

So, as a couple, we decided it was time to ditch the delivery service, and cook more often together. Obviously, we haven’t completely abandoned the idea of ordering from our favourite restaurant, but we do it much less frequently.

Recently, I found myself craving my favourite Thai-inspired dish: Thai Green Beef Curry. Rather than heading over to the local restaurant to fulfill that craving, I researched and developed a recipe of my own.

It was incredibly satisfying to have it come out exactly how I planned. What’s great about cooking is the manipulation aspect when altering flavours, textures, etc., and create a dish exactly to your liking. While most Thai Green Beef Curry recipes tend to have have a strong kick of spice, I‘ve held back on certain ingredients to keep it on the milder side.

I've always been intimidated by curry but with this simple Green Curry Beef recipe, the sky's the limit and I can prepare a delicious meal for my family. #instantpotrecipes

I shopped at our local Asian market for most of these ingredients. It made me extremely nostalgic going through the aisles, as this is where my mother did the majority of her grocery shopping when I was growing up.

All thanks to mama, I knew exactly what brands to reach for. She came over a day before I was making this dish. When she spotted my coconut milk in the pantry she said, “Oh good. You chose the good brand!” Safe to say, I was extremely proud.
