Szechuan Vegetable Soup with Dried Scallop and Spare Ribs

“Time to put on your appron! A simple and yummy soup tonight, please.”

Today, my colleagues and I had a “secret slimming soup” topic over lunch. She wanted to get some ingredients to cook a soup meal for herself tonight. I was pretty excited to find out more as my interest is to cook fast and easy meal (winking smile). She found some vegetables soup recipes from a site that claimed to help weight loss by having the soup with the exact ingredients of vegetables given. I was curious, and asked to know more… Well, the vegetables ingredients mentioned such as cabbage, carrot, green pepper (capsicum), pasley, and etc, are colourful combination and each vegetable is nutritious, but… hey, I really cannot imagine what taste would the soup be, seriously.. It’s kinda taste weird to me huh. read more

Need Better Digestive System? Acidophilus, the Good Bacteria, is the answer.

“L. Acidophilus – a friendly bacteria to our body system”

I take L. Acidophilus powder on regular basis to prevent indigestion or bowel disorder. Most importantly, it helps to improve absorption of the nutrients into my body. Its health benefits are too great to list out.

Let me name a few of its benefits… L. Acidophilus boots up our immune system. It prevents indigestion and diarrhea. When we have good disgestive system, it naturally helps to improve our skin and complextion (smiling). L. Acidophilus provides great benefit to woman’s health, too. It decreases the frequency of getting yeast infection. read more

Mashed Potato In Cup

“Mashed Potato with 2 toppings of sweet & salty that never fails to impress. Served in petite cup size, just as perfect as the canapés for your house party.”

Looking for something to be served at your house party? Or a quick snack before your dinner date? Maybe for an afternoon tea?

This was one of the sides I had in my food library brain that I wished to share. Previously, this mashed potato was served in large single portion meant for 1-2 of us at home as our quick lunch. I thought it might be better to remain it as a side and to serve at a tea party or something. I decorated it in cups, instead. read more
