  1. Thank you soooooooooooooo much for these simple recipes! I’ve been living on my own for 2.5 years now away from home (I’m a University student) and I miss my mom’s cooking dearly. Also- it doesn’t help that I cannot cook for the love of God lest make authentic Vietnamese dishes.

    I can’t wait to try out these recipes.

    • Awesome. LMK how it goes when you do try out the recipes. Look forward to your feedback.

  2. I’m REALLY excited to try this dish tonight! I’m always looking for delicious low-carb options and am also a huge Vietnamese food fan so this is perfect! I’ll sub artificial sweetener for the sugar and voila 🙂 Thank you for this awesome blog!!
