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,...

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...

Braised dried oysters with minced meat

During Chinese New Year, the most popular dish in Cantonese’s cooking is braised dried oyster/ ho si (蚝豉) with black moss/ fat choy (发菜). Both of these ingredients sound auspicious in Cantonese’s pronunciation. Ho si means good business(好市)whereas fat choy means prosperous (发财). Besides braising, dried oysters can also be used in porridge and soup. Today, I will share with you my mother-in-law’s...

Rainbow seafood pasta salad

Before posting the photos I shot in Penang, I would like to begin my 2009 posting with a food recipe. Do you like salad? I never have a chance to made one so far as my Emperor is not supportive enough for this idea. But after all the Christmas and New Year festive celebrations, I desperately need one now. Remember what I mentioned in my last post? It is my 2009 New Year resolution! As we know, another festive...

Fried shallots

Out of all the cooking methods, deep-frying is the least preferred cooking method for me. Why? Besides health reasons, I want to minimize my cleaning job. But this doesn’t mean I am totally rejecting deep-frying food. I don’t mind to eat it once in a while if it is done by others. Hehehe! This fried shallot is the only deep-frying dish in my entire recipes. I made it on a weekly basis as I need the flavoured...

Sushi rolls 寿司卷

I always love to admire those beautiful sushi rolls posted by other food bloggers but have never attempt to make it myself. Until recently, when my son started to crave for Japanese food especially sushi, I decided to give it a try. It took me quite a while to learn the “theory” before proceeding to the “practical”. As compared to baking, the risk of “disaster” is definitely lesser. No matter what...

Broccoli – How to blanch

“What is your favourite vegetable?” “BROCCOLI!!”That’s the immediate response I always get from my son. The strange thing is he enjoys eating broccoli using his fingers. Maybe it is really a “finger lickin’ good” vegetable! When I first started to make my own baby food, I read about broccoli is one of the high-nitrate vegetables (besides beets, cabbage, carrots, celery, spinach etc) which should...

Teriyaki chicken skew (Yakitori)

This teriyaki chicken skew (Yakitori) is a very simple and easy dish. You can even marinate the chicken the night before and grill it the next day. It is our family latest hit. I hope my special visitor who had requested for this recipe (when I put a picture of this dish at my previous posting) will enjoy making it for her children from a Japanese cookbook shared by my cousin in Japan. Servings: 2-3  Ingredients: 2...

SUPER FAST MEAL (超级简单快餐)

Sometimes, I really don’t favour the idea to dine out. If I go to Ikea, under normal circumstances, I need to spend around 20 minutes for traveling and another 20-30 minutes to find a place and order my food (during peak hours). The total time spent is actually equivalent (or maybe more) to cooking a simple one-dish meal at home. This is why I love one-dish meal so much. Among the entire one-dish meals I...

Scrambled eggs with cauliflowers

Previously, my son always rejected cauliflowers but I managed to “convince & confuse” him with this recipe. Since then, he can easily accept cauliflower in other cooking methods. Sounds like “Crouching tiger, hidden dragon” as described by my foodie friend? In fact, this is the most effective way to coax a child to eat certain vegetables. This recipe is adapted and modified from...
