One of my readers was asking for a recipe of 密汁鸡 (Pronounciation in Mandarin as “Mi Zhi Ji”) in my FB Fanclub. Without her further elaboration on the dish title, I assumed she wanted the honeyed chicken. However, I had an urge of making the honey char siew flavour version instead, last weekend. So, I cooked this for this time, and I promised to cook the other honey chicken next time, ok (smile)?
Well, it’s still worth cooking this recipe even if it’s not the desired recipe as it was so delicious! For the sake of the appetite of your kids, cook this, anyway. They will certainly love the sweet savoury taste!
“You can never resist this beautiful and lips-smacking prawns with thick miso and (chili) tomato gravy dish.”
This dish was taught by one of hubby’s old friend years back. So, I envisioned and cooked this dish at home recently, with the ‘recipe’ left in my memory. So, I guess this dish is more like an adaption of his original recipe which supposed to use prawn with shell intact, rather than my ‘ball-shaped’ prawns. I did it this way was to save me from peeling the prawn shells during the dinner, for hubby and girl who hate to dirty their hands on meals. And, with the shaped prawns, I think it makes the dish looks much more presentable, at least it was to me (smile). Well, of course, some may prefer the whole prawns as it is believed to enhance the flavor of the dish with the fresh seafood taste. It’s up to you.

“Hearty one-pot dinner, Braised Pork Belly and Braised Egg (卤五花肉&卤蛋), try this simple Chinese braise dish that whets appetite! Do it simple, with your slow cooker.”
I braise often as I think this is the easiest 1-dish-meal as an express cooking for the working class, like myself. Braise or stew, they are both good cooking method that make your cooking less hassle, which you could have this robust 1-pot dinner packs in meat, mushrooms, tofu, and/ or eggs. The flavourful gravy from the braised pork dish truly whets your appetite, too. A plate of plain steamed rice or a few Chinese steamed bun is the only accompaniment you need for a complete meal.
“Making of round-shaped Fresh Mango Cake as birthday cake.”
I first baked this mango cake (in square shape) as ‘tea cake’ for my hubby’s meeting at his office. And now, I have readers who like to bake this the birthday celebration. I am sure this will be a good choice, for an easy baking, and yet, impressive enough to surprise and make the loved one happy!
So, I would like to share this mango cake, in a round shape this time, it tends to be more like a birthday cake. Yes, I baked this for special occasion. So, I am sharing the pictures of my round shape mango cake, just to give you an idea how your round shape mango cake will look like, as compared to the square one which I have posted previously, even though the recipe is the same.
