Thai Chicken Wings

Thai Chicken Wings - The BEST wings I've ever had. Not only is the flavor out of this world, but the method makes such a good baked wing. That's something I didn't think was possible before.

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.

Thai Slaw with Peanut Dressing

Thai Slaw with Easy Peanut Sauce Dressing - fresh, delicious, crunchy with just a little spice.

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

These Thai Chicken Burgers have a secret that keeps them moist! Yeah, that's a teaser - click to see the whole recipe.

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 Pineapple Fried Rice with Kale

This Thai Fried Rice is pretty amazing and has a dramatic presentation!

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.

Nam Prik Ong

Hot little dip for veggies & pork rinds. Incredible flavor!

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.

Pork Larb with Sticky Rice

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.
