Sausage rolls

(My night project with cocktail sausage fresh from the oven) I always wish that I can make some bread and rolls for my family since we eat them for breakfast almost every day. As we say a wish is still a wish if no action is taken. But when I chanced upon Elinluv’s blog, I was so inspired with her success story in making sausage rolls (originated from dailydelicious). What makes me even keener in trying out...

Corn chicken soup

  From young, soup has been served regularly in my family’s daily diet. As far as I can recall, my mom has been boiling different types of Chinese soups almost every day. After I got married, I too enjoyed all the home-boiled soups of my mother-in-law. Now, as a “minister of home affair cum head chef”, I continued with our family’s tradition to boil soups for the family as my son is a big fan...

Luo Han Zhai/ Loh Han Chai (罗汉斋)- 2

  Luo Han Zhai*/ Loh Han Chai^ (braised mixed vegetables) is a popular home-cooked vegetarian dish during Chinese New Year. As it uses a lot of ingredients which require braising, the preparation is tedious and time-consuming. For the recipe, please refer to my earlier post. (* – pronunciation in Mandarin / ^- pronunciation in Cantonese ) Although “lam yue” (南乳 fermented red beancurd)...

Braised taro with dried shrimps

Taro (芋头 , yu tou) is commonly used in Chinese cuisine for a variety of dishes ranging from main dish to dessert. Some of my favourite taro dishes are: braised pork with taro (芋头焖猪肉), taro/ yam rice (芋头饭), steamed taro cake (芋头糕), taro puffs (芋角) , taro nest/ yam ring (“fatt put”) and sweet taro puree with gingko nuts (白果芋泥). In my 1st attempt to cook with taro,...

Baked donuts

  When I first saw the healthy baked donut from Little Corner of Mine, I was so excited to know that you can bake donut instead of deep-frying it. A healthier choice for my son who loves donut so much. Even more interesting is this recipe uses yogurt instead of milk and yeast. As a novice at baking, I personally find this recipe pretty simple and easy-to-follow. No electric mixer is required either.   Although...

Penang nyonya kuih

(Ang koo kuih from Eaton) What is nyonya kuih? Nyonya may be originated from the Portugese word “dona”, which means “lady”. It refers to female descendants of the early Chinese immigrants who settled in Penang, Malacca and Singapore. Kuih is an Asian concept of cakes and pastries, different from that of the Western one in term of texture, flavour and appearance. ****************************************************************************************************************** Ever...

Scrambled eggs w/ tomatoes (黄金满屋,鸿运当头)

Have you seen a TVB Hong Kong cooking show called “SO FAR 苏 GOOD”? It is hosted by Susie Wong (苏施王). I love watching her show as she is straight-to-point, sprinkled with lots of typical Hong Kong humour. When I first chanced upon her show, she was teaching a group of newly wed couples (all inexperienced in cooking) on how to make the perfect scrambled eggs with tomatoes (蕃茄炒蛋). Although...
