The Texture And Flavors Of Thai Pineapple Fried Rice

Nick loves Thai Pineapple Fried Rice, the singular thing on any thai menu that jumps out and calls out to his taste buds. It is a shame then that ever since moving to Sydney he has been searching in vain for a decent bowl of pineapple fried rice. Strange as it may...

I had never had a crab muffin till insanity struck earlier today as I prepared to make cheese, corn and bacon muffins like my friend Petra makes. The story behind those muffins is a long one but to sum it up, Petra made these delicious savoury muffins for a toy-clean...
