Panang Curry

Love this curry. The panang is so different from others. It has the spice of masman with a heat like red curry but more subtle somehow. I’ve only done this once before with red pepper and tofu. I wanted to try different veg and decided on carrot and pea pods. As usual this wasn’t totally […]

Pad Woon Sen

Iron Chef….pad woon sen! Or something like that. 🙂 This was part one of my experiment to recreate a dish we absolutely love at Thai restaurants. It was the first time working with bean thread or “glass” noodles”. I soaked them for approximately 5 minutes before adding to the stir fry. I think I’ll soak […]

Laksa

We absolutely love laksa. It’s such a burst of complex flavors. The only problem is that I don’t have a true recipe yet. So far I always throw in a little of this and a little of that to get it just right. I started with my base recipe for the soup and paste. During […]

Pad Thai Project

** Please now go to the “personal discovery of Pad Thai & Pad Thai Sauce” **Please check out the even more updated and simplified recipe. I did three versions of pad thai this past weekend. The first version is the definite winner. Again, I started getting too far away from original ratios and it lost […]

Pad Thai v.2

Day #2 of the pad thai project was totally tasty. It didn’t have the WOW factor of the first day, but maybe once it’s good….it’s just good? This time I wanted to decrease the honey, especially because I ate the whole portion of sauce in one meal. Two tablespoons of honey just seems over the […]

Red Curry for Kids

We love some curry around here, so of course the little one wants some too. Red curry is pretty high on the heat scale, so I decided to make a tame version for the kiddo. He loved it, and he insisted on having it for breakfast the next day… and every meal until it was […]

Panang Curry

Another curry! Interesting and tasty. Panang is somewhere between masman and red curry on the flavor scale in my opinion. Peppery goodness. I kept this really simple so that I could get a baseline for the flavor of the spice paste. Even though this was super tasty…I think next time I’ll use less liquid, and […]

Summer Squash Yellow Curry

Another delicious curry. I’m feeling like you really can’t go wrong with curry. Different spice pastes, different veg, different heat levels, herbs, etc. It’s all so tasty. I decided to go with a yellow curry this time. Sticking with the “yellow” theme I used some gorgeous squash we picked up at the market. I’m really […]
