I made a big pot of Tom Kha Gai the other night. May last all week! This is simply one of Thailand's signature dishes. Click here for a recipe.

Although my home country (Thailand) is renown for its wide variety of fruits, my adopted country (United States) has several standouts. Cherries, strawberries, watermelon, peaches and grapes are some favorites of ours. Another one we really love is cantaloupe. I cut them like this every time.

I made this refreshing Thai Lime Tea (Cha Ma-Nao) a few weeks ago. I used some tea I brought back from Thailand on my last trip. However, you can find good brands at your local Asian grocery store. If you visit Thailand, especially when it's hot, I would recommend Cha Ma-Nao. You can get it on the street and in most restaurants.

This is a favorite dish in Thailand, and you can find it anywhere. Great served over rice. After trying it a few times, I think I have finally got it down pat. Although I have cooked it with chicken in the past, this time I used pork shoulder and pork belly. Click here for a recipe.

We don't really grow peaches in Thailand. I guess the ones I've seen were imported. But in the USA, in the Deep South, where my husband is from, peaches are popular and locally-grown. This summer we ate a bunch. They were very sweet, and all grown in South Carolina. Click here for the cobbler recipe I used.

I baked this caramel cake for my husband on his birthday back in June. It was my third time trying one. He said this one was pretty close to perfect! I used Southern Living's recipe.
Update (10/4): I just recently baked another caramel cake, using the same recipe.
