Zucchini cakes – revisit

As mentioned in my early post, when I first made zucchini cakes, I didn’t have a large zucchini so it didn’t turn out close to the original recipe I followed. This round, with a large zucchini on hand and adding 1 extra egg, I made a revisit to this recipe. For recipe, please refer to here. If you have a picky eater who refuses to eat vegetables, give it a try. But remember to control the amount...

Special egg rolls with rice, salmon and spinach

This egg roll is not a pre-planned dish. The idea came to me when I was cooking lunch for both my son and myself on one Saturday afternoon when my hubby was away for his overseas trip. Basically, I just combined some ingredients from my cooked dishes and followed the method in this post. (If you can read chinese, refer to this site). Thus, I didn’t have the exact measurement. You may need to use your own...

Not my usual lunch

This afternoon, I had created a very “fusion” combo for my son and myself. => Cabbage omelettes + sesame seeds rice balls + stir-fried mushrooms. (However, my son who is a fan of soup, after finishing his meals, said “Mummy, where is today’s soup?” :-[ ) This lunch combo is also great to use as a bento set. Recipes for cabbage omelette rolls and sesame seeds rice ball are adapted and modified from...

Simplified “Kwai Fa Chee” (桂花翅)

I saw a recipe from a cooking magazine on how to cook the real fried sharkfin. Long list of ingredients and complicated steps. Too difficult for me to “digest” as a beginner in cooking. Hence, with some tips from my mom, I had derived at my own simple version of “kwai fa chee”. This is also a dish that I managed to “convince” my son to start eating cabbage. Ingredients: 200g...

Steamed egg rolls with fish paste (2)

In my earlier post about steamed egg rolls with fish paste, I took my pictures under poor lighting and the effect was not impressive even after some editings. So I decided to try this recipe again in the morning. I noticed that with more eggs and lesser fish paste, I manage to make a better and firmer egg rolls. You can try the following 2 new combinations: a) 2 eggs and 150g fish paste; or b) 3 eggs and 200g...

Ridge/ sweet gourd (丝瓜)with prawn omelette

I always try to introduce as many variety of vegetables as possible in my son’s diet so that he has a more balanced diet but it is not an easy job. For instance, cooking ridge/ sweet gourd is a BIG challenge to me because it is not my son’s favourite. My past attempt (eg, braised sweet gourd with bean curb) was not well-accepted at all until I had tried out this cooking method based on my MIL’s...
