Happy Fall everyone! Although Fall doesn’t quite exist in Florida like most Northern States we still really enjoy this season.  The temperature in Orlando has actually dropped a bit and if we go outside very early in the morning we can almost feel “Fall”… LOL. Colder temperature always translate to soupy/brothy dishes for me.  Yesterday …

Prime Day 2020

The day that I’ve been waiting for is finally here!  There are so many deals to watch.  Here are some Instant Pot deals might be interested in:  Instant Pot Duo Nova 10-quart 7 in 1 for $99.99.  This is the best price I’ve seen so far on Amazon.  Been waiting a long time for this …

Hope everyone is staying safe.  It’s such a weird and difficult time that we are in but this too shall pass! I like to once in awhile update recipes on here especially the ones that I mass posted when I started the blog.  Some I changed the seasoning and for others I revised the techniques …

My husband suggested that for 2020 that I continue with my CƠM GIA ĐÌNH (FAMILY DINNER) menus for the blog.  It was very well received last year and I got so busy with the move that forgot to pick it up back up.  After being quarantined for days and eating all different kind of food, …

I’m calling it a new recipe but it’s actually a really old one.  I joined the Vietnamese Instant Pot Facebook page in Spring 2017.  I think that following Summer was when this recipe came about.  Everyone on that page was making Mango Sticky Rice using their Instant Pot around that time! The taste is very …

Most time I pull my hair out trying to come up with recipes to test for Instant Pot or to simply figure out what to cook for dinner that the family would enjoy.  I would walk through my local Asian grocery store aisles to aisles looking at different ingredients to draw inspirations.  A few days …

If you grew up in Vietnam like I did you would probably remember all the wonderful snacks that we eat at breakfast before heading to school.  A lot of them involve sticky rice, one of which that is very memorable to me is Xôi Bắp Nhão.  It was served wrapped in banana leaves, and the …

Wow… my first blog post in ages!  The 2nd half of 2019 was a bit of a blur for me as we went through a complete kitchen renovation.  It was so painful but the end result was well worth it.  Stay tuned for photos of my new kitchen which I love so much that I’ve …

It has been awhile since I post a new recipe to the site.  We have had quite a busy Summer so far with moving and lot of visits from our family up North. The kids are home so spend most days trying to entertain them while unpacking. Today I want to share with you a …

Recently I scored a few set of chicken bones at the local Asian market. I’ve been making broth for different dishes using these chicken bones.  I love using the IP to make chicken stock.  It’s so easy, effortless and efficient.  I can turn 2-3 lbs of chicken bones ($2) into over 20 cups of chicken …
