Last Saturday, I hosted a small lime ( and in my constant quest  to master Thai cuisine, I decided to prepare steamed mussels with a Thai dipping sauce.  A good time was had by all :).

Here is the recipe that inspired this dish

Girl Taken to US In Mistaken Identity Case

This is wrong on so many levels! I can't believe this craziness actually happened. Regardless, after the lawsuit, she is going to be a very rich girl. 
A teenager filmed being dragged screaming from her school and sent to the US is back home in a bizarre case of mistaken identity.

A Trip to the City's Open Air Market

Recently, I was in the nation's capital, Port of Spain, to visit a friend and take care of some personal matters.  On my way home, I decided to stop by  the open air and sidewalk market which starts at the intersection of Park and Charlotte Streets then south along Charlotte then east along Prince Street and finally south on George St. (10.653351, -61.507805 - ). 

I was able to capture some photos of the fresh produce at Singh's Fruit & Vegetable stall.

Thai Stir-Fry Beef In Oyster Sauce (Neur Pad Num Mun Hoy)

Lately, my mission in the kitchen is to improve on my Thai cooking, while continuously expanding my food universe - yesterday was no different!

Recently, I came across this easy to follow recipe; however, I changed it slightly by adding some crushed, roasted peanuts towards the end. Regardless, it turned out yummy and here is the recipe's link:
