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.

Fun sandwiches I made for my kids

Ordinary open sandwiches were kind of getting boring (plain squared bread with boring cold cuts, plain cheese slices). In our family my husband and our kids eat a lot of open sandwiches because it's the Scandinavian way. I wanted to get creative so I started to browse around online about  fun sandwiches. So I got into making these characteristic sandwiches. I think it's fun making these.

Here is a link of more fun sandwiches I've have made. Click on the link and check it out :)
