And this little figgy piggy screamed “kiwi, kiwi, kiwi” all the way home!
This semi-exotic fruit lends a clean, tart flavor to savory dishes.

I was already enjoying whatever Thai and Vietnamese foods I could find in Dallas and Fort Worth before I met Vic. It was only natural afterward that I would become well fed with foods from Southeast Asia. Vic’s mom, Pranee, has made many memorable dishes that I find difficult to enjoy at restaurants because her homemade versions are usually better. Mango and Sticky Rice is one of those, and it’s a welcome end to any spicy, chile-studded meal. Making this treat at home is easy provided you can get fully ripe mangoes.
Cornish Game Hen, Poussin, Coquelet, or Baby Chicken – which stage name do you prefer for this pint-size poultry? All except “baby chicken” sound exotic. I learned that they are all one and the same and, despite the name hen, they can be of either sex, and they’re not really a game bird at all. Confused? Poussin and Coquelet do sound exotic but then again, French words are exotic to all except the French. Even Cornish Game Hen sounds exotic next to baby chicken which, to me, suggests cute little fuzzy chicks and Easter.
