Recipe: Banh Cuon (Rice Rolls)

Wow, we’re nearly at the end of July! Time has surely flown by these past couple of months, hasn’t it? Sorry for the lack of diligence in posts! Puppy has hit 4.5 months and is now much more well-behaved so I’ve gained some time back from needing to watch him every second 🙂 Ah, July.Read more
