While I am off jaunting around Thailand with some friends, Kalyn’s Kitchen is turning eleven years old! How did that happen so quickly?

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 11 Favorite Recipes with Thai Flavors that I’ve shared on this blog and schedule this post for the big day!

I’m sure my recipes aren’t that 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!

Grilled Eggplant and Zucchini Salad with Thai Flavors is a fun idea for something new to do with zucchini!

I’m not even sure they actually have butternut squash in Thailand, but this Slow Cooker Thai-Inspired Butternut Squash and Peanut Soup has a lot of Thai flavors.

This Thai-Inspired Ground Turkey Stir-Fry with Basil and Peppers has been a bit hit on the site.

This Thai-Style Spicy Cabbage Slaw with Mint and Cilantro is so good, I’d even make it in the winter when (gasp!) I have to buy mint at the grocery store!

Chicken Breasts with Cilantro and Red Thai Curry Peanut Sauce has been pinned over 70K times, and I’ve made this many times for guests.

A Thai shrimp salad at one of my favorite restaurants inspired this Shrimp and Cucumber Noodle Salad with Thai Flavors.

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 Thai-Inspired Ground Turkey Larb Salad with Sriracha, Mint, Cilantro, and Peanuts

Wake-Up-Your-Mouth Thai Cucumber Salad has lime juice, fish sauce, sweetener of your choice, Green Tobasco Sauce, and garlic, plus fresh mint. Oh yeah!

Cucumber Ribbon Salad with Peppers, Radishes, and Thai Dressing is perfect for summer!

Thai Basil is one thing that makes some Thai dishes so good, and I love it in this Sriracha-Spiced Stir-Fried Tofu with Eggplant, Red Bell Pepper, and Thai Basil.

And finally, there are plenty of Thai flavors in these Thai-Inspired Mini-Meatball Lettuce Wraps!

As I’m exploring Thailand I’ll be be reflecting on how I’m thankful for my blog, and for the opportunities it’s provided me, including this latest chance to see the world! If you’re been to Thailand or have any favorite Thai flavors, I’d love to hear about it in the comments.
