Thai Tom Kha Gai or Coconut Soup


Hi There! Today, I will share with you the thai tom kha gai or coconut soup that I made the past weekend. I served it with corn tortilla for dinner and it came out really well. You can make it tofu to make it vegetarian instead of breast, which is what I have used here. I hope you like it has much I have enjoyed making it. Most of the items can be found in your local Asian grocery store.


  1. 6 oz chicken breast sliced into bite size
  2. 2 kafir lime leaves  or lemon leaves cut in half
  3. 1 lemongrass stalk (need 5-6 slice)
  4. 1 1/2 cup coconut milk
  5. 3-4 fresh or sliced galangal (need 5-6 slice)
  6. 1 1/2 chicken stock
  7. 1/2 cup mushroom sliced
  8. 1/3 cup fish sauce
  9. 1/3 cup lemon or lime juice
  10. 3 1/2 tbsp sugar
  11. 1/2 cup cilantro
  12. 1-3 fresh thai chilies cut in half (depending on how spicy you want them)
  13. 1-2 tbsp chili oil
  14. 1 green onion thinly sliced


  1. Add the chicken stock in a pot.
  2. Add the lemongrass and lime/lemon leaves.
  3. Let it simmer for 5-6 minutes.
  4. Add cilantro.
  5. After the stock start boiling, add the chicken, fish sauce, and sugar.
  6. Let it boil for 5-6 minutes until the chicken is completely cooked.
  7. Add the coconut milk.
  8. Add mushrooms.
  9. Put it in medium while it is boiling for 5-6 minutes.
  10. In the serving dish add lemon or lime juice, chili oil, green onion, and then fresh thai chilies.
  11. Add the soup on top.
  12. Garnish with fresh cilantro.

Again, you can substitute chicken with tofu for vegetarian dish, or shrimp for seafood dish. Additionally, you can add more vegetables of your choices, such as carrots, and cabbages.

Gluten Free Pumpkin Sneekerdoodle


Hi There! I know it has been a long time since  my last blog. Well, I am back with a delicious recipe from Whole New Mom. Hope you enjoy this healthy sugar free, gluten free treat. I would love to hear your comments.


  1. 1/2 cup organic coconut oil (or healthy fat alternative like I Cannot Believe It’s Not Butter)
  2. 3/4 cup granulated sweetener (I used splenda)
  3. 1 large egg or equivalent substitute
  4. 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  5. 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  6. 2 cups flour (I used coconut flour)
  7. 1 tsp cinnamon
  8. 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  9. 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  10. 3/4 tsp baking soda
  11. 1/2 tsp salt (I recommend Real Salt)

Cinnamon Coating:

  1. 1/2 cup granulated sweetener (Again, I used splenda.)
  2. 1 tsp cinnamon
  3. 1/4 tsp nutmeg


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Combine ingredients for Cinnamon Coating and set aside for later use.
  3. Combine flour, salt, baking soda and spices in a medium-sized bowl.
  4. If coconut oil is not soft enough to mix easily, melt in a pan over low heat. Place in a bowl.
  5. Add sweetener and egg (or substitute) to the softened oil. Beat well. Add pumpkin puree and vanilla. Beat well again.
  6. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients. Mix thoroughly, but do not over-mix.
  7. Take a small amount of dough ( can use a small cookie scoop for this process), roll into balls, drop in cinnamon sugar topping, and roll to coat. (NOTE: For gluten free cookies, the smaller the cookie the better as they will crumble more easily than those made with gluten flours.)
  8. Place on cookie sheet or baking stone (I highly recommend baking stones) about 2 inches apart, flattening a bit with your hand (or the bottom of a glass)
  9. Bake for about 10 minutes, or until slightly golden brown.
  10. Cool for approximately 5 minutes before removing from baking sheet to cool on a cooling rack.

Quinoa Crust for Pizza or Cheesy Garlic Bread


Today, I will share a gluten free, healthy pizza or cheesy garlic bread that you and your family will love. Hope you love it. Happy reading.


  • 1/2 cup quinoa
  • 3 tsp, olive oil, divided
  • ½ cup quinoa
  • 3 tsp. olive oil, divided
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 ½ tsp. garlic salt
  • ½ tsp. dried oregano leaves
  • ½ tsp. dried basil leaves
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ cup shredded fat free Italian-blend cheese (I use fat free mozzarella sauce)
  • Optional – For cheesy garlic bread: ½ cup shredded fat free Italian-blend cheese and pizza sauce for dipping
  • Optional – For pizza: ⅓ cup pizza sauce, ½ cup shredded fat free Italian-blend cheese, and your favorite pizza toppings


  1. Place the uncooked quinoa into a fine mesh strainer and run under cool water for about a minute until water runs clear. Shake off as much excess liquid as possible. Add the rinsed quinoa and 2 tsp. olive oil to a medium sauce pot. Turn the heat to medium high and stir occasionally for 6-7 minutes. The excess moisture will evaporate and the quinoa will begin to toast.
  2. Carefully add the water to the toasted quinoa and cover. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Let the quinoa cook for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove the lid and turn the heat to low. Cook 5 more minutes, stirring occasionally (evaporating excess moisture). Transfer the cooked quinoa to a large bowl and let it cool for at least 10 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray.
  4. In a small bowl, add the eggs, 1 tsp. olive oil, garlic salt, oregano, basil, and baking powder. Whisk until well combined.
  5. Add the cheese to the quinoa. Stir to combine. Add the egg mixture to the quinoa. Stir until well combined.
  6. Spread the quinoa dough into a ¼ inch, even layer on the parchment paper. I made cheesy bread sticks so I made a 10 x 7 inch rectangle. Bake for 18-20 minutes, edges should begin to brown.
  7. Top with the pizza, or garlic bread, toppings and return to the oven for 5 minutes.
  8. Let the pizza, or garlic bread, cool for 5 minutes before slicing.
  9. Enjoy
