Wok With Me Baby is Back…in Hanoi!

Guys, it’s been a while. A rather long while.   However, ever the optimist, I kept on paying my annual website hosting fees and renewed my domain name for nearly two years after I posted my last post here. Since November 2013, when I last explained at length how to make sweet potato or pumpkin…

Eating My Way Through Winter: Coconut Spice Bread

  This is going to be a new series, if I can get my act together.   At the moment my act is very obviously not together, but more about that later. I’ve decided that the best way to deal with an unwanted winter is to ignore it entirely, to stay in bed as much…
