Philips Avent Combined Steamer and Blender for making yummy and nutritious baby food

=&0=&=&1=&

This 2-in-1 steamer and blender is what I always want to get for making baby food as I think it is one of the great baby food making equipments.

Besides enjoying the convenience of ‘steam, flip and blend’, all in one appliance, the main plus point of buying this is actually the benefit of retaining possibly all nutrients from the food.

Yes, steaming is probably the best cooking method for baby food as it helps to preserve the most original flavour as well as its nutrients. Oh well, you might be thinking why can’t I steam it with the usual steamer or the conventional ‘wok’ way? Of course, you can. It’s still workable and good. However, in my opinion, this steamer cum blender may be able to do a better job here. According to their introduction, this Combined Steamer and Blender actually retains more essential nutrients as the juices that are released from the food during the steaming process will be retained and mixing back into the food during the blending process, instead of evaporated through the steam releases out during the conventional steaming process.

Pan-Fried Chicken Wings in Soy Sauce

“The simplest chicken wing dish”

Learnt this from the new TVB cooking series hosted by Maria. It was a pretty good show as I learnt a lot of tips in cooking and selecting better food ingredients.

This is one of the dishes I think is the easiest and simplest to follow. However, it was rather bland in taste for the first time I tried it. More

Yes, simply top this delicious avocado paste on the plain cracker to eat. It doesn’t really matter which time I have this, it will just make my day brighter, or simply end it on a sweet note. More

Green Papaya & Pork Knuckle Soup

“Soup for nursing mums”

Yes. This soup is great for increasing breast milk supply, and hence, it turns out to be an important and great confinement soup dish, especially beneficial to the new mummies who are breastfeeding their new born during this period.

Green papaya soup is also recommended by the hospital. If you happen to browse their lactation leaflet, you will notice some recipe suggestions listed on it include the green papaya soup. Mostly using fish meat to complement the soup, but I personally believe the better effect in increasing milk supply by adding pork knuckle (pork hock) instead. More
