Our favorite weekend activities is to snugged in and watch a good movie or read a good book, with that often accompanied by some homemade snacks.

This lightly spiced peanuts is one of the snacks that we liked. It can be done preparing under 10 minutes and stored well for days, a good choice for party starter as well.

【韩式海鲜豆腐汤】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 【泰式塔香鱼块】

I always planted some Thai basil every summer, it is an essential ingredient in Thai dishes, which I love 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 has 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.

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!
