- 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.

Chicken noodle soup with love
Today was a great day to make chicken noodle soup with vegetable. Now that my kids and I are doing a lot better than the past couple days with this flu that we've caught. This soup helped a lot. My husband is not a fan of soup at all. The only soup he like is my homemade Vietnamese Beef Pho Soup and some other soup I've made in the past. He is more into chunky stews with a lot of meat and thick sauce.
He said, " I will have soup if you put some spice into it, so I did. I even cut up carrots into heart shape just because I love my family and plus I was inspired from a picture I saw on pinterest, how to cut up carrots into heart shape. So I had made a big huge pot of chicken noodle soup. I should have made more because my whole family loved it especially the meat eater (hubby). This soup also reminded me when my parents visited me during the holiday, flying across the Atlantic to visit their oldest daughter (me). My mom had made me almost the exact same soup when she was visiting. I miss her cooking. Nothing is better than mom's home cook meal.
