I love everything about Thailand, the shopping, beaches, culture and the industrious nature and energy of the people that I noticed when I was there. Above all, Thai food definitely is my favorite food. There are many different Thai dishes that I would love to post recipes of, but lets just start with Thai curry. Among many different kinds of Thai curries, Massaman, Panang and Yellow curries are my favorites. It is easy and quick to make restaurant quality curry at home in just 30 mins. The recipe I have makes any type of Thai curry as long as you have the curry paste.

So, we might have to go back again and take more pictures!
