Thai

Pad Thai

I've always liked Pad Thai. It's sweet, it's sour and spicy all at the same time. I use lime juice instead of tamarind in my version, since those are more readily available to me. The lime juice imparts a freshness to the dish, in my opinion.

Thai Tea Frappucino

With warm weather coming on, what better way to cool down than with a cold icy drink?  I have always loved Thai Tea with a teaspoon or two of condensed milk to make for sweet treat.  Here I have added ice and ice-cream (instead of condensed milk) to make it a luxurious sweet drink perfect for a warm day.  UPDATE:  I added an extra 1/2 cup ice cubes to the recipe below to make for a more "blended" drink.

Thai-inspired Corn Cakes

I enjoyed this at a Thai restaurant once and couldn't get it out of my head.  I have spiced mine up with lemon leaves and chili flakes but feel free to omit these if you prefer or if you don't have it on hand.  Sweet, spicy and lemony, these corn cakes are a nice afternoon snack, or a unique appetizer.
