Vietnamese people prepare a wide variety of food for Tet (the Vietnamese Lunar New Year). This dish, called Thịt Kho Tàu (caramelized pork and eggs braised in coconut juice), is one of the most popular traditional food served during Tet in southern Vietnam.
It's a slow-cooked dish with the sweet flavor of coconut juice and a beautiful caramel color. It is as comforting as it is easy to make. It's great with pickled veggies!

Even though Phoenix does not have 4 seasons in my eyes (no leaves changing colors in the Fall, snow in the winter, or trees budding in the spring), I love to cook with seasonal ingredients. Not only are the prices great, everything seems to taste better when it's in season. 
This kabocha pumpkin bun is one of my favorite things to make in the Fall. It's healthy, and a very convenient snack to have along for outdoor activities. It's tasty too!
