Garlic Ginger Rosemary Salmon

I love garlic.  I eat it raw. I add it in my food to most, if not all of my cooking.  I eat it pickled.  I eat it all the time. When we used to live in Texas, before moving to Thailand, I cooked fish more often. After moving to Thailand and no real kitchen … Continue reading Garlic Ginger Rosemary Salmon

Brought the … Continue reading Simple Sautéed Shrimp and Onion Recipe

Cafe Escape Number Four: The Ice Cream Festival

Although we've had rain here in Chiang Mai, the humidity still makes the city seems like an outdoor, oh-naturrel-sauna. Today was no exception.  It was humid.

Cafe Escape Number Two: A Massage and a Cheesecake

Remember yesterday I said I won't cook dinner until it rained.  And today, yes, it's raining at 5pm.  Oh sure, no problem!  You're welcome, the good people of Chiang Mai.
