While I am traveling around Thailand with some friends, Kalyn’s Kitchen is turning eleven years old! I don’t know how that happened so quickly, but here are 11 favorite recipes with Thai flavors!

It feels like I say this every single year, but truthfully when I wrote my first silly post on Kalyn’s Kitchen I had no idea how this blog would change my life! And last year I talked about some of those ways blogging has enriched my life for the ten year anniversary of the site.

Now Kalyn’s Kitchen is turning 11 years old, and I’m missing the party! I’ve been off traveling in Thailand with some good friends but I wanted to do something to celebrate the birthday with you. So in the frantic last-minute rush of packing for a two-week trip to a foreign country, I managed to collect 10 Favorite Recipes with Thai Flavors that I’ve shared on this blog and schedule this post for the big day!

For sure my recipes aren’t authentically Thai, but most of them do use at least some Thai ingredients, and hopefully they give you some idea of why I’m so excited to taste the food in Thailand. And while I’m there I’ll be watching and taking notes to see if I can find some healthy Thai dishes to share when I get home. Meanwhile, hope you enjoy trying some of these faves if you like Thai food!

Larb is one of the things I’m looking forward to trying in Thailand, and it’s something I often order in a Thai restaurant. I’m sure it’s not authentic, but I love this Turkey Larb Salad.
