Hello friends. Happy 2016 and Year of the Monkey.
Sorry for being out of action for a bit but I have a really good excuse ….I had a baby!
That’s right, our little bundle of trouble, B came into the world like a proper American, right in time for Thanksgiving lunch.
Here she is…
I would have warned you of my impeding absence but pregnancy quickly morphed me into a miserable, brain dead, water retaining dragon lady with absolutely zippo appetite. I became a culinary recluse that lived on fried egg sandwiches, very tiny lattes (sad face), and Pb&J, if I was feeling fancy.
Now that B is about three months, I am ready to re-enter the food blogosphere with recipes squeezed in between naps and nappy changes. In the meantime, if you haven’t already sorted out Valentine’s Day dinner, check out my Pan-fried Duck with Massaman Curry Sauce featured on diyready.com.
Glad to be back.

Happy year of the Goat and one year anniversary of Thai Me Up Kitchen.Yup, that’s right. It’s been one whole year of burnt fingers, failed recipes, photo-editing hell, and attempts to write code (and failing miserably), all in the name of bringing you food porn.
So thank you all for your support/comments, even if you are a spam robot from Russia, ruining my google stats. I love it all.
Alright now, enough with the sentiment. Let’s get this party started with my favourite party snack, the Crab Rangoon.
