When a lot of us are used to heading out and exploring the next hot resto, staying at home can be a real struggle during quarantine. 

Instead of reaching out for another pack of chips, try to get creative and use this time to hone your skills and finally learn how to cook. 

Here are a couple of favourites—some yummy (and easy!) recipes you can do while you #stayathome, with ingredients you already have in the kitchen.
