Mini Blueberry Cheesecakes

by ·40 亚博体育下载comments
Can I say everyone in parties loves cheesecakes?If not everyone,then most people are so into trying these little cute cheesecakes.I made some for a bring-a-plate family gathering,they're gone quickly once served on table.

Mini Blueberry Cheesecakes01

What I like the most about making cheesecakes is that I can make them well in advance,chill in fridge,then bring them along inside an insulated food bag.Then off I go for enjoying the party without any stress.

As I got a new kitchen toy – a 12-cup mini cheesecake panrecently,I can't wait to try this nifty kitchen gadget.Baking cheesecakes turns out into a 20-minute-or-so matter.Then simply top the baked cheesecakes with some blueberry coulis,place one or two fresh blueberries for garnish.

by ·48 亚博体育下载comments
This steamed chicken with Sand Ginger powderdish is very simple and delicious.  It's a traditional Chinese dish,best served with steamed rice and ginger and scallion dipping.

Steamed Chicken with Ginger Powder01

Simple is the best.You can't imagine how nice the taste of this steamed chicken was.The chicken meat is so tender and silky smooth,steamed to just cooked.If you like the traditional,popular Chinese steamed chicken (白切雞),you have to try this dish as well,if you haven't.

Try to use organic or free-range chicken if you can to ensure the best result.Having said that,I used corn-fed chicken this time.So,that's why my steamed chicken was in bright,lovely yellow colour.The end result remained wonderfully good.

Steamed Beef Mince on Rice (蒸冬菜牛肉餅飯)

by ·18 亚博体育下载comments
Ever tried this Hong Kong rice dish,steamed beef mince on rice?It's one of my favourite childhood steamed rice dishes.I especially love the grains because they absorbed all the beef juice and sauce.So tasty!

Steamed Beef Mince on Rice01

Sometimes you may need a recipe to let yourself be lazy for some reason,not wanting to stand in the kitchen too long or dine out.No matter what the weather is like,this delicious steamed beef on rice is perfect to ease your starving.

Steamed Beef Mince on Rice02

My mother used to make this rice dish in an electric rice cooker.Yet a wok or hot pot will do too.The end result is equally good.All you need is to prepare some cooked rice that's a bit drier than usual because the rice will take up every bit of the tasty beef juice while steaming.

You can imagine how yummy the rice will be.Apart from making fried rice,you can turn leftover rice into another superstar on your dining table with this recipe.

by ·22 亚博体育下载comments
Thisbeef brisket in clear brothdish goes perfectly with vermicelli or egg noodles.Just add a few bunches of Chinese bok choy and cook in the soup.Then you and your family can enjoy a tasty light meal.

Beef Brisket in Clear Broth01

I had luck to spot this lean beef brisket from a nearby Asian butcher.Why not got some back home and cooked up for hubby as he's a big fan of beef brisket?

Every time I cooked beef brisket,I'd make the traditional flavoursome stewed beef brisket in Chu Hou sauce,a fool proofed dish for anyone who wants to try Hong Kong cuisine.

This time I tried another classic beef brisket soup dish that I grew up with and it's still popular in Hong Kong.The cooking method for both mentioned dishes is similar.As for making this beef brisket soup dish,the key to success is preparing a delicious clear soup base,not a cloudy one.

Chinese Almond Dessert

by ·33 亚博体育下载comments
Thisalmond dessertis not too sweet with a creamy texture.It's good for wrapping up your dinner or as a snack throughout the day.

Almond Dessert01

This is my childhood dessert that I often enjoyed with my dad in a little dessert shop in Hong Kong.The Hong Kong version of it yields those almonds for making Chinese soups,sweet almonds (南杏) with a little bit of bitter almond (北杏).

The fragrance of the almond is so strong that makes you love it or hate it,similar to the case of celery and coriander.I love it very much.Well,it's not the cup of tea for my family though.

Almond Dessert02

Almond is recognized as a healthy food.It helps lower LDL-cholesterol and reduces the risk of heart disease.I have been trying to add some almonds in my family menu.

by ·9 亚博体育下载comments
This popular Chinese dim-sum,Teochew dumplingscan be made at home. Best of all,it's healthier. Make more in advance,then you can enjoy whenever you crave for some.

Teochew Dumplings01

Would I make Teochew dumplings (aka Chiuchow dumplings) at home?When living in Hong Kong,I wouldn't give it a thought.Chinese restaurants are everywhere.I could enjoy any dim sim at any time anywhere.

Teochew Dumplings02

But if I make my own dumplings,I can choose any ingredients I like.The taste is tailor-made and surely suits my personal preference.I don't use lard,so it's much healthier.You can make as many as you like,then keep them in freezer for up to 3 months.

When you crave for some,just steam them in a wok.They are served as a perfect Chinese breakfast or afternoon tea.What a bliss having dim sum enjoyed at home.

Strawberry Smoothie01

Whenever I finish doing body workout,I like to have a full-glass of smoothie,like this mango blueberry smoothie,or this strawberry smoothie.Both are super healthy and handy to be prepared on the go.Yesterday was the starting day of Spring down under here.Strawberry is still in season.Lucky that I got some beautiful strawberries at a bargain price.I especially love the vibrant red colour of this smoothie,very pleasant and refreshing.If fresh strawberries are not available for you,you can use frozen ones instead.The taste is equally good.

Tofu and Pork Mince Patties01

Tofu and pork are perfect partners.As for this dish,the tofu,adding a refreshing note,helps turn the pork mince patties even more tender with moist.On the plate,a bed of crispy and crunchy lettuce to balance the texture will make you feel like never having enough of those pan-fried patties.Each bite of it that dipped in the delicious sauce will make your taste buds dance.Both my hubby and I found those four tofu and pork meat patties are really not enough.I have to double the portion when I make this dish next time.

Bread Pudding01

Making bread pudding is a good way to get rid of any stale bread.Not many people like eating stale bread,yet many people will surely want to taste the bread pudding.I made some for a small group gathering the other day.Everyone could taste a piece with the yummy sauce.The caramel sauce is loaded with rich sugar cane flavour,definitely naughty and good.The only complaint that I received was the portion was too small.I need to make more next time.

Mango Blueberry Smoothie01

Although it's a bit cold yesterday,my heart felt the warmth as hubby cooked me a bowl of noodles.Then I returned him a glass of healthy,yummy mango blueberry smoothie.What surprised me was that the cold smoothie went really well with the hot noodles.Blueberries are rich in vitamin C and antioxidants,blended with the juicy mangoes and creamy yoghurt as a result that I felt there's nothing could beat this super healthy and delicious drink.Best of all,you can whip it up in minutes if you have a food processor or blender.This drink can be served as breakfast or light lunch as well.

Mandarin Peel Prawns

Mandarin Peel Prawns01

Mandarin peel has long been used in Chinese cooking.It's quite expensive though.So my mother used to make her own every year and keep them in large airtight jars.Mandarin peel is quite versatile and can be used in many different dishes and soups.Its aroma goes really well with sea food.I often use a small piece to steam fish or make Chinese dessert,such as my most favourite red bean and black glutinous rice sweet soup.This time,I stir-fried some fresh prawns with my homemade mandarin peel.The dish was good as expected.One thing I might do differently next time is that I have to double the size at least.Well,this smaller portion could be served as an appetizer.

Stir-Fried Yam Bean with Beef and Cloud Ears

Stir-Fried Yam Bean with Beef and Cloud Ears01

This is a traditional Chinese stir-fry dish that I tried and loved when I was very small.The slightly sweet and crunchy flesh of yam bean impressed me very much.Yam bean (aka Jicama),a kind of edible root vegetables,is widely used in Chinese cooking actually,quite easy to get it from any markets in Hong Kong.It comprises of high quantity of fiber and anti-oxidants and can be eaten as raw.

That said,yam bean can remove body heat and help control blood pressure.I love its crunchiness going so well with the juicy stir-fried beef.Once the dish was served,I finished nearly half of it by myself.
