Mango & Sticky Rice with Lime and Rainier Cherries

Mango & Sticky Rice with Lime and Rainier Cherries

One of the BEST parts of country living is having access to so much delicious FRESH produce! Some good friends of ours just started growing Rainier cherries here in Mattawa, and they ended up with so much extra, they delivered crateful’s to all their friends and neighbors! We are so lucky!! We have been eating them like crazy, but since there’s so many, and there’s only 4 of us… I have been thinking of some delicious, creative ways to use them. Tonight I was making a traditional thai mango and sticky rice dessert, and thought i’d change things up a bit by adding some of the Rainier cherries, and a little lime! The dish not only turned out way more beautiful than usual… but the flavors worked so well together, it was delicious, and summery, and my little family loved it! We hope you do too! P.S. I wish I could share out some of these cherries!

Raspberry Souffle

Raspberry Souffle

For valentines day this year I made a raspberry soufflé which was one of the best desserts I have ever eaten–but I couldn’t post the recipe because I didn’t have any decent photos! Then last weekend my little family and I went on a trip to Seattle, and as we were exploring Pike’s Place Market I found a cool little store that sold herbs, spices and extracts of every kind: all for super cheap! So I was totally in my element, and I found some Rose essence, which I thought would be awesome in my raspberry soufflés, so I decided to make some more!

Mango & Sticky Rice ข้าวเหนียวมะม่วง

Mango & Sticky Rice ข้าวเหนียวมะม่วง

When I was at BYU I had the opportunity to do a study abroad in Thailand for a few months, and while I was there, I fell in love with “Khao Niew Mamuang.” I’m not sure if I loved it so much because it was the BEST dessert they had in Thailand, or because it was the ONLY dessert they seemed to have in Thailand… but either way, it was awesome, and I probably ate way too much of it! My room-mate and I would go to the night-market quite regularly, and it was always served best out of plastic containers from the street vendors there.
