If anyone has seen any of my interviews, you know, Thai food is my favorite cuisine! Anything with coconut, curry, and peanut sauces, I’m there! This one has it all!! Eat alone or over rice (brown, white or jasmine) It has a great dose of healthy fats and is so yummy on a cool fall evening.

    love this recipe, but FYI when I hit the print button, it formats and prints it with the “share” , tweet, etc, buttons blobbed all over it, including over part of the ingredient list…no matter how it’s printed. Can you possibly fix that??

  2. This looks great. Do you think it would be a problem to leave on low for 8-10 hours? Thats usually how long I’m gone for

  3. I am so happy you put this back up. You had a version of this up a long time ago, not nearly as detailed haha. I used it once and it became a regular dinner request among the man and kids. Thank you!
