Lightly Spiced Peanut Masala (Microwaved)




I love to sit home and watch a good movie or read a good book with family over the weekends, and that good family time often accompanied by some homemade snacks, and one of them is this one.. it is easy and could be prepared under 10 minutes... a good starter for party too!

Korean Seafood Tofu Soup (Soon Doo Boo Jjigae)




This Korean spicy soup is my second favorite soup after tom yam seafood soup, it is great for cold weather or when I don't have much apatite for anything.

I almost always made this whenever I have ingredients in the fridge!!

Thai Basil Fish




I always planted some Thai basil every summer, it is an essential ingredients in Thai dishes, which I love dearly...it could also be used for some Taiwanese dishes like Salt fried Chicken (盐酥鸡) and 3 cups chicken (三杯鸡).

My Thai basil grow well as usual for this year, and we have got some fresh salmon at home, so I made this delicious fish dish for lunch!

Thai Green Papaya Salad (Som Tam)【泰式青木瓜沙拉】



I love having Thai foods in summer, the sweet/sour/savory mix of taste just helps to open up an appetite  in hot summer months.

Mum and I saw this unripe papaya at the Asian supermarket the other day. Since it was more than a 100 F out there these days. We decided to make this papaya salad for our lunch!

Som Tam is traditionally made pounding in a mortar, I do not have a big mortar, so I just mix the ingredients together to form a salad. It still tastes great!

Note: The original post was created in the year 2012 and updated 1/2/2019 with new recipe (I bought the Laos mortal and pestle!) and pictures.

泰式菜酸辣开胃的特点很适合夏天的时候做了吃,前几天和妈妈出去买菜的时候看见了青木瓜就兴起做这道木瓜沙拉的想法。

传统的木瓜沙拉是要在石捣臼里把材料用木棒捣在一起的,我家里没有那么大的石捣臼,就直接凉拌了,味道也很不错喔!

(注:我后来有了泰国辽国的捣臼,所以食谱更新时用了捣臼做的。)

原食谱于2012年7月10日编写,2019年1月2日更新。

Almond Milk (Badam Milk)




I like badam milk, cold or hot, and with vitamix, it is much easier to make this drink at home.. it was more than 100 F here in NJ for the past few days, I decided to make the cold badam milk as refreshment in the afternoon!

Green Chickpea (Hara Channa)



Green Chickpea is the raw chickpea (Channa/Chole) in pods, it is easier to prepare compared to the dried version and very nutritious!

Being in NJ means we got choices of very nice and fresh Indian food ingredients, which of course includes this beautiful and delicious raw/green chickpeas!
