Food From Home

Mmmmmmmmm....I do have to say....Vietnamese food is my favorite cuisine.  Nothing beats my mother's cooking, but I'm always inspired to recreate those wonderful memories of the delicious meals she would whip up in the kitchen.  I knew what she was making most of the time just from the lingering kitchen smells.  Just one sniff from the living room and I would think, "Oooohhh, star anise....Mom's making Pho (noodle soup)!" I didn't make pho, but I did make some tasty meals. 

Dishes include Ga Nuong Chay (Grilled Veggie Chicken with Tomatoes), Hu Tieu Xao (Stir-Fried Rice Noodles), Goi Cuon (Summer Rolls), Cha Gio Chay (Veggie Spring Rolls), and Ca Ri Dau Hu (Curry Tofu).

    Oh My. Those foods makes me hungry. I've never tasted Vietnamese food but by looking at those photos it makes me want to.

  5. Yummy! I love the Goi Cuo my mom used to make some of it. I just love it. Also, it's very healthy.
