Basil Eggplant


I never liked eggplants until I discovered this Basil Eggplant recipe. Basil adds so much flavor to dishes, it is my favorite herb in the kitchen. Use Chinese eggplants and do not peel the skin; the purple skin is the most nutritious part of eggplants. I added the colored bell peppers, and this turned out to be a very colorful Read More

This recipe is so easy when you can get Mae Ploy green curry paste at the Asian market. I added an assortment of seafood, meat, tofu, Read More

Pad Thai


One of my favorite dish when visiting a Thai restaurant is Pad Thai. I like its sweet, salty, and tangy taste. The sprinkle of ground peanuts also gives this tasty, chewy noodles a little crunch. One important note is that you need to serve this dish immediately; all that tasty, yummy sauce gets soaked up by the noodles quickly if Read More

Fusion Fresh Spring Rolls with Three Dipping Sauces


  I saw the the above at Trader Joes last weekend. It redefined carrot = orange for me. I found out that Carrots Used to Be Purple Before the 17th Century. What a discovery! This big bag of multi-color carrots has been sitting in the refrigerator for one week. What am I going to do with it? I have left Read More
