Thai Slaw with Peanut Dressing

In the summer heat (and it has been so hot & so humid, here) I can hardly get enough cool, crunchy salads. Here’s a fantastic crunchy little salad with a little bit of a Thai twist. That this is more American Thai  than Thai doesn’t detract from the utter deliciousness.

Thai Chicken Burgers

I’m sitting in what seems to be the red meat capital of the world, folks. Right smack dab in the Midwest. At my folk’s in a small town outside of Sioux Falls. (We even went to see bull riding last winter!) So it might be considered a bit of a stretch to serve my fave octogenarians a chicken burger. And a chicken burger with Thai flavors, no less!

Thai Inspired Cabbage Salad

Cà Ri Gà – Vietnamese Chicken Curry

When we’re talking about Vietnamese cuisine in our family, my sis is all about the Pho. A few years back, I posted a phenomenal recipe for Pho Ga, Chicken Pho, just for her. Me, I’m all about the Cà Ri Gà. It’s a little harder to find in restaurants – and so a little harder to tame those cravings.
