My parents are from Cambodia. During my childhood my mom would make Cambodian fried rice and it's one of my favorite dishes. It's so delicious. Nothing is better than mom's homemade cooking. I miss her cooking so much and it's not so easy living across the Atlantic far away from my family back in New England. Every time we visit she would make all my favorites. It's so nice for her to cook and share Asian/Cambodian food with her grand kids too.

- Sorieya Neang-Hansen
- 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.
