Steamed Minced Pork with Mei Cai (Preserved Vegetable) 梅菜蒸肉饼

“It’s always known as the childhood dish cooked by grandma…..”

One of the regular Asian dishes often cooked by grandma back in our childhood days. It’s nothing fanciful, and almost every household knows how to make this. However, this simple pork dish carries most memorable childhood moments as well as the home-feel taste for most people.

Low-Carb Cheesy “Toast”

“My toast ain’t bread. It’s low-Carb food. It’s vegetable!”

Yes, having on diet to shed away the final round of my baby weight for the past few months, I learnt to eat low carb food. This is one of the dishes I have learnt to make, to replace high carb ingredients, once in awhile.

You may call this a “toast”, “pancake”, or “Rosti”. It’s made of mashed cauliflower as its main. I liked it a lot as it’s just yummy and doesn’t taste like vegetable. Even my toddler son ate it. To me, it resembled a cheesy pancake meal. :)

Papaya Snow Fungus Sweet Soup with Black Sugar (木瓜雪耳黑糖水)

“Come, learn the correct method, follow the actual steps, to cook this nourishing papaya snow fungus sweet soup in my recipe.”

Just realized that I did not have my papaya snow fungus sweet soup recorded. I thought I did, but apparently only having the savory version as well as the adaption with winter melon. Well, this was a great time to showcase it as I boiled this nourishing goodness with Okinawa black sugar instead of rock sugar. It turned out to be even tastier and smoother mouthfeel. For sure, black sugar is healthier version of sugar than other kinds of sugar, especially for women, as it provides nutrients such as Iron, Calcium, Potassium and Magnesium. Plus, this sweet soup helps in nourishing the lungs as well as skin complexion. What’s more can I ask for?! :D

Salmon Sushi Cake

“Happy birthday, girl!”

Yesterday was the birthday of my elder girl. She wanted the same strawberry cream cheese sponge cake I made for hubby just last month. Having to make so many cakes in a roll, I was kinda feeling lazy. It might also be lacking of surprise element to the birthday celebration.

Making a sushi cake not only special, sushi is also her favorite food, especially with salmon as its filling. Hence, I decided to make this as her birthday surprise, at the same time, our quick and simple dinner meal. I thought this was the best simple celebration to mark this day during her exam period. Yes, it was the second last day of her year-end examination period. :)

Avocado Cake with Chocolate Cream Cheese

“Simple and delicious avocado cake for a healthy afternoon.”

Avocado is definitely a superfood for all ages due to its high nutritional value. However, not everyone would accept its creamy texture and taste. I personally loved it so much that I would eat it whenever I could, but it wasn’t the case for my children. In order to make them eat, the taste of the avocado mustn’t be present in their palate. If you, too, encounter hard time getting your young ones (and even the big ones) to eat avocado, here I have a great & simple solution for you. Here you go, having the superfood disguised in my little sweet treat. Who says this is not one of the best ways for treats & “tricks”.. :D
