Longevity Buns

I attended a wonderful birthday dinner of one of my elderly aunts. The meal was good and the ambiance was just perfect. Every dish served has a good symbolic meaning and one course caught my attention and it was the longevity steamed buns or known as paus. Paus are literally steamed buns.

Toasted Baguette

It's been more than a week now since my last post. Been extremely busy with spring cleaning. Yes, although I have tried some new recipes at home but am sharing one for now. It's a very simple toasted baguette. Sounds easy, right? But I have tried more than 5 times before making the perfect toasted baguette. Pair it with a nice warm thick mushroom soup or simply dip it with a bowl of tangy tomato soup. Or... coarsely crush them to go with your favorite salad. I guarantee it won't disappoint.

Haw Flake Drink

Have you heard of haw flakes? Okay, if you are an Asian, there is a high chance you have came across haw flakes as a common tangy disc snack wrapped in paper which is imported from China. It is still found in almost all Chinese medicine halls. This is actually made from a very sour fruit that has beneficial properties to our digestive system and packed with vitamins. I'm sharing this recipe today to ease the effect of overeating.

Tropical Shrimp and Tuna Pizza

I have been quite busy over the last few days. Surely stress of work is building up and what i really look forward to share are food we can prepare in a jiffy, tastebud-friendly and most of all, balanced diet to keep us going. Today, I'm sharing a simple pizza idea which we can prepare very easily at home and will leave your kids begging for more.

Caramel Pork with Onions

Judging by the name of the dish, one probably can guess that this dish is slightly sweet. Which is not wrong, therefore, this very appetizing dish can be served with steamed rice or plain bun (mantao). I was inspired to cook my version of this dish after tasting it at a famous Hokkien restaurant. One word to describe, YUMS!

Barley and Winter Melon Drink

Barley has always been a popular ingredient for a common Chinese coffeeshop drink which can mildly expel heat and balance our bodily fluid to keep us well-hydrated. You will be surprised to know how easy it is to make this drink at home at a fraction of what you pay at the coffeeshops. Ok, let's get started.

Special Tangy Lime Dipping Sauce

Dipping sauce can greatly enhance an otherwise bland dish or add more flavour to an already delicious dish. I am sharing this special tangy sauce which goes well with any seafood. Since this dipping is sans chillies and mainly made of fruit and garlic, even children will like it.

Avocado and Egg Sandwich

Today is Tuesday, which means we still have 3 more days to go before the weekend. Amidst our hectic schedule, I am sharing an easy and delicious lunch and breakfast idea which you can prepare and go in less less than 15 minutes. Avocado is a fruit filled with vitamins and healthy fatty acids to keep you glowy and healthy for days to come. Talk of a balanced diet. This is an easy one to start with.
