Authentic Thai Red Curry


My husband Scott gave me the challenge of making Thai Red Curry like he had at Thai at Silver Spring. I tried a few different recipes but didn't quite get a "thumbs up." While perusing the web I found a recipe from the Adobe Nido Bed and Breakfast in Albuquerque, New Mexico (now closed) and headed over to the local Thai market to get the ingredients.  Incorporating some suggestions from one of the market employees, Scott says I've got the winner right here!

Since that challenge back in 2012, this recipe has become one of my favorite authentic Thai recipes to cook for family and friends. Pictured below are a few vintage shots of a cooking lesson with my sister-in-law Erica.

  1. Looks beautiful! I love thai curry -- might need to give this a try. Is switching it up and making green curry as easy as changing the paste, or would veggies and other ingredients need to be switched out as well?

Moe's Famous Queso (Copycat Recipe)

After my dad retired from over 40 years of paper mill management, he did a short stint working at Moe's Southwest Grill before he and my mom moved down here to Maryland. After working a shift, he would often bring home Moe's famous queso and heat up their fresh tortilla chips in the microwave. I started craving Moe's queso, this unique white cheese dip packed an addicting heat that I had never had at any other Mexican restaurant. I started searching the web looking for the best copycat recipe and found the closest replica at  Seeded at the Table . I think it's right on the money!

Whole Foods Cracklin' Cauliflower

Whole Foods opened up across the street from our neighborhood. Like, literally, across the street. It has been a long time coming and highly anticipated, so when they finally opened their doors, I went THREE times on the first day! The ever-changing salad bar is our bank account's downfall. Every day at noon it keeps calling my name, taunting me with quick, easy, and healthy options for lunch when I'm hangry.   I always get a little bit of this, a little bit of that, and a bigger receipt than I had hoped for. So, I decided that I would start making batches of these sides in my own kitchen so that I could enjoy them all week long without the guilt. You can purchase the Whole Foods Market Cookbook on Amazon! First up, one of my absolute favorites, the Indian inspired Cracklin' Cauliflower! It's so good that I recommend making at least a double batch! Download the Printer-Friendly Cracklin' Cauliflower Recipe Card

I'm Loving Lidl's Sauces and Marinades

Last Saturday we packed up and headed to our borrowed beach house for the summer.  Before heading out, I stocked up on a bunch of Lidl's Sauces and Marinades for quick and easy meals at the beach. Lidl has a great variety to choose from, and look at the prices!!! So far we have tried Ya Mon Jerk Style Marinade, To-Kill-A-Lime Sauce, Nashville Style Barbecue Sauce, and Bailando Habanero Mango Sauce. All have been bold and flavorful. Scott especially enjoys the Nashville Style Spicy Barbecue Sauce, which definitely has a kick to it.  On our first night I served up this grilled steak marinated in the To-Kill-A-Lime Sauce, with a refreshing Watermelon Cucumber Salad, and fresh grilled corn. So good!  The next night I used the Nashville Style Spicy Barbecue Sauce for BBQ Chicken.  This spicy BBQ chicken went great with grilled fingerling potatoes and a chilled Blackberry Goat Cheese Salad. The then I turned up the heat even more with the Bailando Habanero Mango Sauce. .  It reminds me
