Maple Coffee Pork Ribs

Restaurant standard maple coffee ribs for tonight…. There is no excuse for you not to eat at home!

This is easily one of the best coffee ribs which I have created for my cooking assignment.

This is an easy recipe, with a little bit more steps to follow, but it’s definitely worth the time and effort. Well, everything was done from scratch! :)

Delicious, delicious…. Yes, the ribs were perfectly flavored. This pork ribs dish could be served as a Western cuisine, or your usual Chinese sit-down dinner meal. Just the plating that matters.. Otherwise, this is so yummy to enjoy on its own, or go with a plate of steamed rice!

Durian Cake with Banana Streusel in Glass

“Scrumptious durian dessert recipe, now comes with a professional video cookbook, by and on”

The media news and durian experts speculated that MSW (Musang King) durians would drop its price this August. So, I thought it’s the best time (again) to eat the king of fruits, durian. To me, it’s more that just eating this creamy fruit, incorporate yummy durian into your homemade dessert and baked goodness would be an excellent idea, too!

The super aromatic and crunchy banana crumbs as the topping is something you wouldn’t want to miss. Make sure you have it to compliment this durian cake in glass well.

Japanese Egg Salad Wraps

“Complimentary ideas for simple & quick dinner”

I posted my new creation for Spicy Pork wrap (See Recipe) dinner just couple of days ago, my children and hubby had been asking for it, again… However, I decided not to make that again so soon, because I had more wrap recipes which I was so keen to try out! Here’s one of them…..

Yes, if you are very keen to try out the wraps, but wondered how to fix more than a meal with it, just to let you know that Mission Foods are now having a great promotion on giving away free recipe booklet with every purchase of two packages of wraps. With this recipe booklet by Adam Liaw, it was easy to finish using up my wraps, even by a small family like mine.

Creamy Curry Pork 6-Grain Wrap

“Delicious and wholesome lunch with healthy multi-grain wrap.”

Wrap meals often remind me of Mexico food, but I would prefer having the wrap with an Asian flavor closer to my palate at times, if I were to make one at home. For this reason, I chose to make my wrap in my Asian inspired recipe. Yes, with curry, pork… Already having my dry curry pork recipe which cooked to more an Indian cuisine (See recipe here), the curry pork cooking has now been simplified, for the wrap creation. Call it Asian-fusion recipe here, it’s mixed to a western flavor, instead.:)

Mushrooms & Pea Sprouts Stir-Fry

“It’s just the abalone sauce you need in your stir fry!”

In order to fully appreciate the freshest taste and natural sweetness Of the fresh pea sprouts as well as the highly nutritious mushrooms, minimal use of condiment to taste is more than just required. I needed only the abalone sauce in my recipe.

If you are a vegetarian, use the mushroom sauce. Otherwise, the Abalone sauce is the best to go with this stir fry! That’s because the golden spring mushroom (金源菇) used in this recipe yields a tinge of ‘seafood’ taste after cooked. Hence, adding abalone sauce was sure to good in enhancing the flavor of this seafood-tasted mushroom in the dish.
