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.

This summer I bought several pints of blueberries at Greenlife. I baked some treats. Whatever blueberries were left over, they're in the freezer, awaiting winter.
Although the muffins were pretty tasty, the cobbler scored higher.

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.

In Thailand, goji berries are often put in soups. I do that from time-to-time when I cook here in the United States. You can buy by the berries at most health food stores. Whole Foods actually has a few different brands, including the type shown in this video. For breakfast, try adding some goji berries to your oatmeal.

I followed Ina Garten's Beatty's Chocolate Cake recipe.
I shared some of the cake with a colleagues and they said it was very delicious. I used cacao (healthier) instead of cocoa powder (recommended) and local Dynamite Sumatran coffee for the icing instead of an instant coffee listed in the recipe. The key is try to improvise a bit.
"The cake was out of this world delicious. Best chocolate cake I've ever had. Seriously, no kidding." Ralph

This is after I mixed it all together and packed it into jars.
Then I let it sit outside at room temperature for almost two weeks. The fermentation process can be done in different ways. I would study the video below and also research online.
This is the final product. Of course, I now refrigerate it.
