Tom Kha Gai

Today my daughter was home from school sick, and when I asked her what she wanted for lunch, instead of requesting the classic chicken noodle soup, she requested this thai chicken coconut soup instead, which is one of our favorites. I know I throw the word “favorite/favoUrite” around a lot, (don’t mind me, I never know whether to spell British or American English)! But seriously, this is mine and my kids most-loved soup, and it checks so many of the boxes too: super quick & simple to make and to clean up, healthy (enough!) Feeds a crowd, (or makes plenty for leftovers), and everyone seems to love it. Minus my husband who would prefer a 5-star spicy Tom Yum instead. (Which I can post about later). Anyway, if you love thai food, coconut soup, or just want to try something different to your standard chicken noodle, try this recipe! I hope it becomes one of your new favorites too! Continue reading

I am always on the lookout for family faves that make everyone happy, because i’m an ENFJ/middle child, and it’s what I do, and the whole family loved this curry, and the sticky rice that I served with it!

Thai Massaman Curry

When I was attending BYU I had the chance to spend a Spring & Summer in Chiang Mai, Thailand. I worked at an orphanage, au paired for my professor, took classes on world religion, sociology and thai language, and travelled to 12 countries around SE Asia, Europe and America. It was incredible, busy, fun and pretty life changing. Amidst all that learning and growing, I found some time to take Indian and Thai cooking lessons, and have loved making curries ever since. Continue reading
