Rice Dumpling Stuffed with Split Moong Beans

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 Sago Pudding

Thai Sago Pudding 1

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. The tables are usually spread with colorful desserts from coconut jelly to the delightful drops of smooth,

Khanon Khrok 1

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

Creamy Potato Custard

I don’t cook potatoes that often because no one in this house really likes potatoes. Sadik thinks they give him gas. Yaseen only eats potatoes if they are fries or chips. But when I go to the market and I see a mountain of newly harvested potatoes that look wet and cover in mud, I

Sadik and I plated pumpkin seeds in the pots 3 weeks ago. They sprouted very quickly and now the tiny plants have thick luscious green leaves. Our obsession with growing stuff seems to increase every day since we worked on our small balcony. Now we have dill, basil, red spinach, and even a small kumquat

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

Chocolate and Peanut Butter Brownie

Chocolate and Peanut Butter Brownie 1

Do you like brownies? I do, but I won’t go as far to buy a brownie from a bakery. I am unfortunate because I never find a place that sells good brownies that aren’t dry. Also it’s my weird eating habit that I only love to eat all bake goods while they’re still hot. So

Pretty Pink Brownie

Pink Brownie 1

Pink was my favorite color once. It’s one of the cutest colors in the world. Now my favorite color is purple, and I feel like it’s more me. Okay, back to pink. Pink just turns anything into “cute.” Remember the dark luscious brownies we all love? Now imagine it in pink. It’s so pretty, right? So
