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 …

If you have been following my blog you’d know my family loves vegetarian food!  I grew up eating many delicious dishes with meat substitute.  Vegetarian food to me doesn’t mean lack of flavor or taste.  It means to simply find an alternative way to make the same dish without the meat/bone component.  So far I …

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 …

Since I started this blog, I got numerous requests on how to make Vietnamese Fish Sauce Mixture (NƯỚC MẮM PHA).  I finally now got a chance to share this with you.  This is my Mom’s recipe and have been loved by many.  In our house we almost always have a jar in the fridge ready …

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, …

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 …

Today my Mom came over to help me harvest my lemongrass.  They are so easy to grow, super low maintenance and supposedly deter snakes!  I have 7 bushes total.  We harvested almost 7 lbs on the largest bush!  Mom will mince them with her food processor and we’ll freeze for later use.  Newly harvested lemongrass …
