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. :)
Planning for any gathering, or feeling like fixing a feast for your loved ones? For the seafood connoisseur, here’s my easy and delicious all-in-one seafood treat.
This is especially great to cook for a group epicureans to get together. Chatting, laughing and having great food together… Great food, great home cooked food, but minus the hassle of cooking up extensive dishes. You would still be able to impress your guests with this lucious meal. :)
“Mother’s Day special wrap meal for the mothers. Serve this restaurant standard dish at home to celebrate with your mommy and loved ones!”
Oh yes, Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and it will be the perfect time to go the extra mile and show your appreciation by whipping up an awesome Masterchef-worthy meal for the leading lady in your life! That’s what Mission Foods Singapore has planned about..
And here, I came out with my newly created wrap recipe, for my mother, your mother, you and me! Of course, fathers and sons were not missed. My hubby and daughter loved this wrap so much! Each of them had two large rolls which required using 2 wraps for each roll they had!
“Anytime, any day, with these light tasted biscuits, actually.”
With the recipe’s name, you know it was for the day. Oh, sorry.. it’s just butter biscuit, actually. Since today’s Valentine’s Day which coincides with Lunar Renri (Human’s birthday in Chinese), it seemed like a big day that I had to do something.. Simple baking, but I tried to make some of my biscuits into heart shape, just for the sake of the festive. :D
Crispy on the crust, and cottony soft inside. That’s the wonder of using buttermilk in the recipe. To make cottony soft texture of a bake. Yes, that’s the trick.
This is the same steamed fish you always get to taste when attending wedding Chinese banquet dinner. Some called it Hong Kong Style, whilst others called this steamed in light soy sauce… There were even more names in Chinese menus.. Whatever name to be called as desired, I knew this would be so well liked by anyone, both the adults and children. :)
Why steamed fish for festival?
Sure thing, this is a festive dish. That must be the reason why this was seen so often in the Chinese festive occasions. Of course, you wouldn’t omit those auspicious garnishing and sides in the plate, too.. Let me explain.
“Wing-to-wing for all couples in this Lunar New Year!”
If you are still thinking of chicken dish for the coming reunion dinner, but tired of fixing a whole chicken… Chicken wings could be ideal for the lunar new year celebration. Afterall, who doesn’t want to be wing-to-wing with your beloved spouse. Yes, having wings at your reunion dinner is to symbolize flying together, wing to wing like a pair of bird… Walking hand in hand with your loved one… Sweet. :)
