Prawn and cashew nut 1

Do you know you can eat cashew fruits? When I was a kid, during dry winter in Thailand, there were cashew apples hanging on the trees. Yes, the fruits look kind of like apples or maybe pears, with yellowish orange to juicy red. I took a bite once, but didn’t like it one bit. I

I love chicken wings. It’s the ultimate party food of all time. My favorite chicken wing is the BBQ ones, but this Asian twist will do, when I run out of BBQ sauce. I love the nutty flavor of toasted sesame seeds. It gives that crunch to the soft and juicy wings. It’s super easy to

Chicken and Tofu with Basil

Chicken and tofu with basil 2

I’m surprised my kid likes tofu. It’s funny because tofu and I didn’t really have a love at first sight kind of story. It took me a while to get used to it. I think the reason I like tofu is because of its nutrient more than its taste. Anyway, I’m blessed that he is

I am missing a humble kitchen back at home. I remember walking down the stairs early morning to the sleepy kitchen. It was a plain room without cabinets or sink with the wooden windows facing our backyard garden. I always wished my parents make a door from the kitchen to the garden so I didn’t

Lately, I’ve been day dreaming about my childhood, when the world was simple and full of adventure. I love every part of this memory, but most especially, I adore anything that involves going to the forest. Like wild mushroom picking, finding bamboo shoots on the mountains was so much fun. On the weekend, my mom

Stir Fried Chicken with Pea Eggplants and Kaffir Lime Leaves

Chicken with pea eggplants 7

When I was a kid, my parents always asked me to pick some pea eggplants from our garden for them. I hated it dreary because not only the shrubs of pea eggplants are covered with sharp spines, but the taste of these green berries is awful, bitter and unpleasant. I never understood why my mom
