About Me

My photo
Welcome to my ScandinAsian food blog. A blog about what I like to make in my little Norweigan kitchen, from homemade meals to fun creative sandwiches. My parents gave me the name Sorieya, a Cambodian name, which means sun. I'm originally from the United States. Now I'm currently living in Norway, married to a Norwegian man with 3 beautiful children. It's hard being away from my family back in the States and I miss them everyday. I am not an artist but I love making fun sandwiches for my kids. I am not a professional chef but I love to cook and I love being in the kitchen. I love introducing my children to different kind of international food, introducing food from my childhood and explaining to my kids the history about their culture and food. I love spending those quality time together teaching my little ones how to make bread, Khmer food, and teaching me Norwegian. My Norwegian isn't that great but I do understand just the basics but speaking it, that's another story.

Yummy Cambodian/Asian food

My homemade Cambodian/Asian food
I miss my mom every day and especially her cooking. Living in Norway and across the Atlantic far away from my family is hard. I have 3 small kids and my husband works a lot. I'm usually doing all of the cooking, cleaning, taking care the 3 little ones. I don't get a break or any help. It's mostly tough for me because I get homesickness and have been through a lot and these past years hasn't been to good.  It would be great and a big help to live closer to my family because they offer to help to watch the kids once a week and it would be nice for the kids to spend more time with their grandparents. My parents haven't meet their 3rd grandchild yet. Anyways every time we visit she would make Vietnamese noodle soup but the Cambodian way because she knows that it's my favorite. She makes fresh spring rolls, Vietnamese omelet with the ground chicken, bean sprout, veggies, and her homemade sweet fish sauce, Cambodian lemon chicken soup, other soups, egg rolls.


I have made a lot of my mom's cooking. I've tried and I have to say she would be proud but her cooking is way better. I love cooking Cambodian/Asian food and sharing it with my family.

My homemade spring rolls.
These are my homemade egg rolls served with spring roll sauce.
My family loves these and my husband's family them too. It's fun to make with my kids. I usually would use ground pork, ground lean beef, potatoes, vegetables, Asian seasoning and spices. Serve with spring roll sauce or sweet chili sauce.

One of my favorites is my homemade Vietnamese beef noodle soup. Topped with mint leaves, bean sprouts, cilantro, coriander, green onions. Dipping sauce I would use Golden Seasoning, Hoisen Sauce, and hot sauce. The beef broth is so simple to make.
