It’s still dark when I woke up in the morning. The air was really chilly, too, because last night we left the windows opened. I went to the kitchen and put a pot of water on the stove. We still don’t have water heater, you know, so I need to boil some water for Yaseen

If you’ve been with us for a while, you probably know that we just love deep-fried food. We deep fry everything, from Oreo to a whole big fish. The other day, Yaseen even invented his version of Deep Fried Marshmallow, which I’m going to share a recipe with you soon. And although we always try to

Thai desserts can act as breakfast because of how light and nourishing they are. When you visit the fresh markets in Thailand as early as 4am, you will see several dessert stands under the hanging yellow light bulbs.

So I haven’t told you guys that Sadik might be gluten intolerant. He hasn’t officially been tested, but after talking to his doctor about certain allergies, we are kind of sure about it. The first thing my husband said when he doubted that he might be allergic to gluten was he’s gonna miss all the

Winter is slowly blowing away from the city. At night the hot air already sneaks in to our bedrooms. We need to crank up the fan to sleep now. I put my winter clothes away and tug the thick blankets in a storage under my bed. I never like summer. It makes me feel tired

Steamed Rice Balls with Coconut

I always wonder why we called coconut grater “Kra Tai Khood Ma Praw” in Thai. It basically means a rabbit for grating coconut. I couldn’t find any connection between coconuts and rabbits whatsoever. And rabbits don’t eat coconut, as far as I know. Anyway, in Asian households, we cook with coconut a lot. Coconut is used

I can’t believe I’m teaching people how to make syrup. But guys, it’s necessary. Let’s face it; we need to talk about this. Syrup is important ingredients in Thai drink mixes and desserts.

The other day, I talked to my friend about how I wanted to cut down dairy products in my diet. I looked back at my childhood and I noticed I rarely felt unhealthy when I was a kid. I was an energy powerball. I was active and strong. Diet was almost like a taboo topic.
