Cambodian Stir Fry Crabs – Cha Kdam

Has it been really 2 months since I’ve updated my blog?! Geeeez how lazy am I? JK. I’ve been thinking of what direction I want to take this blog. As much as I love American food, I noticed my top hits are Cambodian recipes. I get it. It’s time for Cambodian food to shine. There aren’t a lot of really nice blogs out there committed to Khmer food. I will try my best to dish out Khmer food, but I’m no expert.

Grilled Dynamite Mussels

Happy first day of Summer!! It’s grilling season! I love grilling season, but I hate grilling myself. I usually leave that up to the bf because I can’t even start a fire and I’m too scared to use the gas grill haha. When the bf does set up the grill for me, I usually grill really easy simple recipes just because I don’t want to spend my whole time standing in front of the fire. This recipe fits the bill. Dynamite mussels are my absolute favorite thing to cook on the grill! So easy, so fast, and it really impresses your guests! And you betcha it’s yummy!

It will totally make me feel better.
