Chocolate Dipped Homemade Peanut Butter Samoa Oreo Cookies.
Can you guys tell I am so ready for spring to roll in tomorrow?
Our weather has been so spring-like (well for the mountains anyway…), it’s been awesome. Really muddy… but awesome. I am well aware that we will for sure have more snow (there is actually a winter storm warning out right now for 6pm tonight), but this spring weather has me excited. Plus, I am loving seeing all the spring produce that’s been arriving at the grocery store. The strawberries have been insanely DELICIOUS and they smell incredible too! This may sound totally odd, but I’d be happy just sniffing them. Makes me think warm summery thoughts.
So I have been kind of having some fun with produce lately. Except yesterday, yesterday’s produce kicked my butt. I just could not get the pictures to look right. You’ll see them eventually and you can tell me what you think, but I felt like Peter outside of Mr. McGregor’s Garden, beautiful produce right in front of me, but I just couldn’t get what I needed.
And on (yet another) totally random note, I am sitting at my desk looking out my window and just saw probably the sweetest thing ever. It reminds me that I have the greatest parents. Seeing as I live (literally) down the hill from them (which yeah, some may find weird, but I love being so close to my fam), I watched my parents head out for their nightly walk just as the sun was setting. Yeah, they mostly walk in the dark…with headlamps. DORKS.
Anyway, watching them tonight reminded me of the night my mom returned from China last Thursday. As they where walking by my window, I caught my dad putting his arms around my mom and giving her one of those half hugs that you do while you are still moving. Something similar to this, but you know not a little boy and his grandpa. Sorry it was oddly the best photo I could find. Dad sort of gave her a little squeeze on the shoulders and looked at her with the biggest smile that literally just read, “I am SO happy you are home”. Now, my mom was only gone for one week, but my parents are the one and a million couple that actually like spending everyday together. Like they go everywhere and do everything together. It still amazes me daily just how much love they can still have for each other after seven kids and 30 years of marriage. Wouldn’t they be tired of each other by now? I mean, jeez.
Regardless, this moment totally made me smile and feel incredibly grateful that am lucky enough to have two parents that actually enjoy each other and are not constantly fighting.
But really, you just had to see the smile my dad gave her to really understand what I am talking about. The two should NEVER be in a movie, but that moment was basically straight out of The Notebook.
Ok, sorry to everyone who now wants to puke their brains out in love disgust. I promise I will stop being all gushy and just move on to these Thai red fish curry noodles.
So, lets talk curry!!
This is a Thai version and it’s possibly one of my favorites. It’s so simple and quick. Full of flavor and yet still so light and fresh! Perfect for these hopefully sunny and warm spring days ahead…well at least in a perfect world.
Honestly, this meal is just so simple there is not too much to say. The Thai flavors are truly amazing and pair so well with the fish. Plus, you get to top the curry with fresh mangos (my all time favorite) AND you get to eat the whole curry over a bowl full of noodles. Now what could be better than that?
Ahh, well maybe a Thursday turning into Friday and finding myself on a sandy palm tree filled beach with clear blue water? Well yea, that might be better, but since that’s NEVER going to happen, I’d gladly eat a couple bowls of this curry and dream about those blue waters and palm tree filled beaches.

Babbling finished for today. Let’s eat noodles already!!
Excellent! I did have to make a few substitutions, based on what I had on hand. I used tilapia as my fish, baby bok choy and mushrooms instead of snap peas, and brown rice pad-Thai noodles. Very flavorful!
Forgot to add the star rating.
Thanks again Djienne:)
Happy Sunday!!😃🍊 I appreciate you making this recipe and your comment, so glad to hear it was delish! xx
Wow! This was absolutely delicious! Followed recipe except didn’t have snap peas, we just had steamed broccoli on the side. Added chopped green olives to the sauce and served over jasmine rice. Incredible flavor, family loved it! My teenage son scarfed down 2 huge bowls, will definitely be making this again.
I love to hear that this recipe was a winner, thanks so much for giving it a try and sharing your review:) xxTieghan
My husband loves fish recipes. I did a quick search on your website to find something new to cook with fish. This one came up and I decided to try it. I am so glad I did! This recipe is amazing. I used cod and added shrimp. I also added broccoli. The sauce is so flavorful! Thank you so much for creating a great fish recipe to add to our dinner rotation!
Happy Friday! I am delighted to hear that this recipe was enjoyed! Thanks a lot for making it. xTieghan
So yum! I’ve made this a few times and tried recently with leftover halibut, adding just at the end. Awesome fresh or with leftover fish:).
Fantastic! I am so glad you enjoyed this recipe, thanks so much for making it! Happy Friday:) xTieghan
I love this dish! I scale back the sambal so it isn’t so spicy. Works really well with shrimp or salmon too.
Thanks for making the recipe, I am so delighted that it was enjoyed! Have a great week:) xTieghan
Perfect! So glad to have found this recipe!
Thank you so much Dennis! I am so glad you enjoyed this! xTieghan
This was delicious and so easy! A great way to serve fish!
Thank you Jacquie! xTieghan
This looks wonderful. Is there anything I can sub for the coconut milk? Half and half?
Your parents sound so sweet and you are so lucky to have such a good example of long-lasting love.
Hi there! I am sure half and half or whole milk will work great! Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you love this recipe! Thank you! xTieghan
Made an adapted version of this last night, ’cause someone in the family, *cough*mom, doesn’t like spicy food, so omitted the sambal oelek. Also, I forgot to buy spring onions, so used one stalk of lemon grass instead. ANYWAY! It was a huge success, both my mom and little sister said that I should make it again SOON.
Ah thats a great substitution!! So happy you all liked it!!
This tasted amazing! Made this a couple of weeks ago! One of my favorite recipes of all time! Will make it again for my family!
I loved all the flavors everything balanced out so well.

Thank you so much and love all your photos!
Followed this recipe to the T and it is absolutely delicious! I have never ventured to try and make Thai food but this is wonderful and a real keeper. Can’t wait to share with family and friends.
SO happy you loved it, THANKS!!
Great recipe, while I too, love Asian inspired cuisine, it’s important to remember that if a dish is labeled “gluten free” it should truly be so. Most celiac and gluten intolerant patients cannot consume fish sauce or soy sauce as they contain wheat. Opt for Tamari in your recipes intead.
We made this tonight! Another delicious recipe from you! Not sure what we would do without you to inspire us. We made it as directed except for the sambal oelek- we didn’t have that on hand 🙂
So happy you enjoyed this! THANKS!
Love what you wrote about your parents, love the recipe and your photos as always, and love your comparison to Peter Rabbit outside the garden! 🙂
Thanks Terry!! 🙂
