A recap of Food and Light 2011, held last week in Boulder, Colorado.
Cooling off with a lava flow: piña colada and strawberry dacquiri.
It's like pizza, but the toppings are fillings and the sauce is meant for dipping. Stromboli!
Mee krob - my favorite Thai appetizer.
French toast is an easy way to use up leftover bread.
It's sandwich time: feta artichoke sandwich and a bonus mention of Thundercats!
Trail mix - any way you like it. I happen to like it with dried cranberries, cashews, pepitas, sunflower seeds, and chocolate-covered raisins and almonds!
No matter how hot it is, it's never too hot for a bowl of curry laksa.
Bathrobe. Bowling ball. White Russian cocktail... er, make that a White Russian cake!

So addicted to the strawberry mochi that I ate in Hawai'i that I had to learn to make them myself!
Don't miss the party! It's all in this calabrese sandwich.

Getting tropical with macadamia nut shortbread cookies.
Baby bok choy is so good when simply prepared. The hearts are so sweet!
Blackberry curd... on a cheesecake... in a jar.
Sour cream lemon pound cake is great for tea time, breakfast time, cake time, snack time or any time!
Chinese fried rice is totally versatile and there are many variations. Here's my favorite.

Chocolate chip peanut butter cookies.
Vietnamese pickled green mangoes: sour, sweet, spicy.
