Hi ya’all. I hope everyone had a happy and safe 4th of July. And I hope you ate your fill of everything summer has to offer, including Sweet Corn. If you have any Sweet Corn leftover (if you don’t, make some) you’ve gotta try Thai Street Corn. It’s a revelation.
Ok, so do you ever fall in love with a dish at first sight? I did, and these Thai Beef Rolls called to me from the moment I first saw them until I had them on my plate. Heck, there are a couple still in the fridge and they just won’t be quiet! Shush now, I already ate too many of you!!
So I’m not usually a huge fan of chicken wings, but my son is. Wow, can he put them down. This is a recipe that changed my mind, and I can’t wait to serve them to Kraig. Thai inspired Chicken Wings.
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 Thai Chicken Burgers, no less!
When Angie over at Fiesta Friday challenged other food bloggers to create a healthy dish this month, I was all set. See I’ve been making so many marvelous healthy dishes with cauliflower this month (I just can’t seem to get enough of it – maybe I’m lacking some trace mineral it has) that I thought I could just slide a recipe right by her.
Quite some time ago, I watched an episode of Diner’s Drive-Ins and Dives, the Best of Las Vegas. Ming Tsai just couldn’t seem to get over Nam Prik Ong from the Lotus of Siam. And I couldn’t get over his ravings! Months later, I finally made it.
When January rolls around, I like to take stock and go through the pantry to see what needs to be used. This year, merry little red lentils were calling, “Use me! Use me!” Well, I did and made Thai Red Lentil Soup with Coconut & Curry.
Gosh, I’m spoiled – I lived for years not far from an excellent Asian restaurant in Colorado and know how wonderful and healthy food from the various cultures that loosely comprise Asia can be.
Minutes to make, absolutely delicious, a handful of ingredients come together in a gorgeous, healthy meal. Thai Curry Chicken will impress anyone it’s served to and make you look like a genius when you whip it up.
Diners, Drive Ins and Dives – I haven’t seen the show since I chopped my cable, but they featured Pork Larb made by Chef Opel (Opal Thai Food) on the episode All Family, All the Time. I was completely enamoured – and Guy Fieri? There’s very little that shuts him up, but this dish did! 🙂 Unfortunately, no recipe! I rewound a couple of times, and here’s my take on it, down right addictive, simple and inexpensive. Make with pork or chicken.
