When we moved to Bangkok in 2010, going out for a beer usually meant drinking one of two things – Heineken or big-name local beers (Singha, Chang or Leo).  The latter options taste, in my opinion, like flavored water (they’re often served with ice) and are pretty much guaranteed to give you a headache the…

Pesto Pea Soup with Tortellini

Pesto Sweet Pea Soup

This pesto pea soup is spring in a bowl – sweet and fresh and topped with tortellini.  And it’s super fast since it uses frozen peas, but if you had fresh sweet peas (lucky you!), this would be a great way to use them. I always love spring food.  This time of year makes me think…

sweet potato fries

Parmesan-Thyme Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Crispy baked sweet potato fries are one of those holy grail foods for me. When they’re good, they’re really good, but for having only one real ingredient, those little fries are so darn finicky. Just when I think I’ve found a way to make those healthy-yet-snackable potatoes hold their fry-like shape, I make them again…
