A Traditional Vietnamese Family Meal at Thuan Kieu Com Tam


Houston Press

One of the first times my parents came to visit Houston, their friends invited them to eat at Thuan Kieu Com Tam (10792 Bellaire Blvd; 281-988-8865), which at the time was a rather shabby hole-in-the-wall place. To hear my dad describe it, it was practically slum-like. "When I pulled up,...

Recipe for a Tabletop Terrarium

Be inventive with the vessel… you probably have some clear glass vases or a small forgotten aquarium somewhere. Maybe you have moss or succulents growing in your garden. If not, your local nursery will be able to help you pick plants that are happy to be part of your project...

Four Steps to Prep Your Favorite Freshman for Eating Well in College

by Hannah Bertiger @ Cookbook Create

The freshman 15 have nothing on teens with these healthy life skills. You’ve created so many memories around the dining table with your college-bound teen; now that they’re leaving the nest, let’s get them cooking and shopping healthfully for themselves! I learned to cook, both from recipes and from my parents, who have a love of cooking and eating. I’ve had life-threatening food allergies for my entire life and I was a lacto-ovo vegetarian all through college. There was a lot to juggle diet-wise, but I prepared food and cooked for myself through college, with a spirit of creativity and play. From my experience as an eater and a psychotherapist who specializes in food allergy management, here are four must-have life skills that your college-bound teen will need in their back pocket. Unlike studying for the SAT, practicing these four skills before heading off on their own will reward them with a lifetime of healthy food choices. The sooner you start working on them together, the better off your loved student will be in the school of life.  Skill 1: Plan a Balanced Meal Food is how we fuel our bodies so we can work, sleep and play at peak […]

Slow Cooker Veggie Lasagna

by TheKidsCookMonday.org @ The Family Cooks & The Family Dinner by Laurie David

This simple lasagna recipe is packed with veggies and calcium-rich dairy. Cooking it in a slow cooker is a great way to prepare a healthy home-cooked meal on a weeknight. This recipe comes to us from our friends at Produce for Kids. Cooking Tip of the Week: No-boil lasagna noodles are a great time saver, but you may need to add extra liquid to your recipe since the noodles will absorb it. Check the package for a recommendation on adding water or additional sauce to the recipe. Food for Thought: This recipe calls for sweet onions, which have a pleasant, sweet flavor that kids love! Sweet onions are typically white or yellow and have a flattened (or squished!) look. White onions are the strongest tasting, so they’re best when cooked, while red onions are best for eating raw in salads or guacamole. When in doubt, just go with yellow onions, they’re all-purpose! Family Dinner Conversation Starter: If you could have dinner with any person in the world, who would you pick? Visit The Kids Cook Monday for the full recipe for Slow Cooker Veggie Lasagna.

The Perfect Gift for Father’s Day

by Laurie David @ The Family Cooks & The Family Dinner by Laurie David

Don't fret that Father's Day is only a couple of days away and neither you nor the kids have bought anything. The very best gift anyone can give isn't something bought at the mall or gift-wrapped. The very best gift of all is right under your very roof. Make Dad dinner. Figure out the menu, buy the groceries, organic when possible, and cook from scratch. Engage the kids in the kitchen and let them be an integral part of preparing this special meal. Set the table with love by adding a budding branch found outside or pick a family heirloom found in the cabinet, something that can be the centerpiece of the table and the conversation. Or perhaps find a fun and different location for dinner -- a picnic in the backyard or on the living room floor. Hey maybe even dust off that dining room you rarely use! Then sit down, as a family, with phones and TV screens turned off. And talk. Tell stories about your parents, grandparents and far-off uncles. Talk about what you all love best about Dad. Remember, great meals make great memories. Because on top of all the benefits of family dinner, it spreads love too!

Dinner With a Local Vietnamese Family in Hanoi - LET'S BE WANDERERS


LET'S BE WANDERERS

On our second night in Hanoi we were lucky enough to be invited to have dinner at my boyfriend’s Vietnamese friend’s house. This was an incredible experience and a real highlight of the trip. Driving to Thuy’s house through crazy traffic and tiny streets definitely more suited to motorbikes and bicycles than a car! Upon arrival we were greeted by Thuy and were introduced to his wife, two beautiful daughters and mother-in-law. We were later joined by his father-in-law, brother-in-law and two sisters-in-law. We joined Thuy to buy some ingredients for the meal at the local market. This was a fascinating experience in itself! The street was lined with vendors selling items including meat (including roast dog much to our surprise/shock), fresh fruit and vegetables, grains, eggs and soft drinks. After purchasing the ingredients we needed we returned to Thuy’s house and spent the next 20 minutes or so blowing bubbles, laughing with and chasing his adorable 3 year old daughter outside. Myself and Thuy’s two beautiful daughters. When dinner was served, we sat cross-legged on a bamboo mat covered in plates loaded up with delicious-looking food. The meal included traditional Hanoi-style fried pork spring rolls, fresh spring rolls, chicken, [...]

The Family Cooks

by Laurie David @ The Family Cooks & The Family Dinner by Laurie David

What began as a casual conversation during a hike on a beautiful, sunny day about the need for a cookbook with easy, healthy, delicious recipes for families to cook together has become a beautiful book we are very proud of. For families, eating right has become a huge challenge. We’ve become convinced we no longer have time to cook, and food marketers spend billions persuading us that packaged, processed food is convenient, satisfying, and the key to happiness. Not true! Luckily, home cooking is making a comeback, and we hope The Family Cooks will inspire you to take control of what you and your family eat by making it yourself. The Family Cooks contains over 100 fast, tasty recipes with real ingredients for people who think they are too busy to cook. We tested all the recipes with parents and kids to make sure they were family-friendly. We give you ways to play with the recipes, like fun garnishes your kids will love (try the yogurt “spider web” garnish on pea soup) and extra ingredient suggestions to alter dishes (add a few spices and lentil soup becomes curried lentil soup). For those who find cooking intimidating, we made sure the recipes were easy to prepare. We explain cooking terms, break down basic prep techniques, and decode food labeling practices to help you avoid falling prey to marketing tricks, like believing “natural” on a package means it’s healthy for your family. We include lots of tips on how to get your kids involved in the cooking, and offer recipes they can make on their own. Cooking together with your kids is one of the most powerful ways to ensure your family’s health, build self esteem, develop your child’s palate, and set your kids on a lifetime path of confident cooking and healthy eating. Pick up a copy of The Family Cooks online from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, IndieBound, or Books-a-Million, and let us know what you think. Thanks for your support and happy cooking!

Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich

by Kirstin Uhrenholdt @ The Family Cooks & The Family Dinner by Laurie David

How many times has Laurie said, “Dinner is not about three courses and dessert, it can be as simple as a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, it is the time you spend together that matters.” She has said it many, many times. And she is right! So I am going to say it too, but let us make it a little cozier, by grilling the sandwiches with bananas and honey.

As a cookbook author and local food magazine editor, I get lots of opportunities to write, review and test recipes from my community. But my favorite recipes to play around with are those from my grandmothers, Ruth and Dorothy. They were excellent cooks, in different ways: Ruth enjoyed baking and favored fancy dishes that were fit for company; Dorothy cooked simply using produce from her vast backyard garden. While both of them have passed away, I still feel them standing over my shoulder whenever I make one of the recipes they shared with me.
