Avocado Sweet Special

=&0=&

I told you into previous post on first baby food. Avocado is the greatest and tastier fruit to be indulged.

Indeed, this simplest and tastiest recipe makes the avocado much more pleasurable to eat. The add-on sweetness from my recipe elevates the original creamy and buttery taste of the avocado which goes well with plain crackers.

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

Homemade Mango & Strawberry Salsa

“Fruits day, it’s not necessary to be in liquid or paste form. I make fruits into refreshing briny salsa dish.”

I saw a very great Japanese pork chop cutlet from a Japanese variety show in tv, and decided to try it out as it looks really alluring (Show you the recipe next time!).

To make my pork chop meal more balance with both dry and moist dishes, the fruit salsa came to my mind. I had thus craving to make mt own salsa as I find it a great complement to something dry, like pork chop, since it contrasts the taste and texture.. The super refreshing mouthfeel to have a chilled side dish like salsa for piping hot pork chop is also what I was looking for. More

Sugar Cane Fish Meat Drumsticks

“An absolute kid-pleaser dish.. Fun to see, nice to eat!”

Having trouble getting your kids (or the big kid) to eat more fish?
Cook this to make the fish dish more fun. A way to disguise the fish meat in a fun-looking drumstick-like appearance, the kids will be more than willing to pick up one to try. Yes, it works!

This sugar cane fish meat drumstick tasted very delicate with an aroma of egg coated on the surface of the fish drumstick. I liked the tenderness in the fish meat, too. More

Mini Shrimp Toast

“My creation of shrimp toast, have it like crunchy bread squares, or luxury version of French toast with shrimp paste topping.”

This cute and handy open-face toast is often a hit for snack/ tea time when small and light bites are needed, and minced shrimp is the shortcut tips of the busy day. However, all shrimp toasts are not created equal, mine is tailored to taste homely with regards for your health… less oil, less fry.

Children will love it, if you serve with an addition of salad cream or mayonnaise. It creates kind of refreshing bites together with the soft and moist shrimp paste in the palate. But for me, as a regular diet-watcher, no cream, of course, I sprinkled a touch of Italian herbs and coarsely grounded black pepper when served. More

Sour Cream Bowtie Pasta

“Light and refreshing sour creamed pasta. Good as mains or eat as sides”

It’s beautiful in appearance with the choice of bowtie shaped pasta, and light savoury taste for the palate as a side dish with the use of sour cream instead of full cream or butter. Spice the pasta dish up with some chili flakes or paprika, this pasta is imaginably delicious and appetizing.

There was this old male friend of mine, asked me, where to get the sour cream, as he wanted to get one for his baked potatoes the other time. He tried looking for it in the supermarket at dry goods section (where you find bottled mayonnaise and other dressing), but in vain. So, now you know you won’t be able to find it at the dry goods area, of course. Fresh sour cream has to be refrigerated! Find sour cream in small tubs from the chilled compartment where you find butter, margarine, yogurt and whipped cream (smile). More

Homemade Pot Stickers (锅贴)

“Homemade Chinese Pot Stickers, from scratch! Even if these Chinese Pan-fried Dumplings do not look extensively appealing to you, never ever doubt the fabulous taste of its exquisite homemade meat & chives fillings!”

I made Chinese potstickers at home. Potsticker has been my favourite as I love starchy food since I was in my teens. When my reader, Tony, first mentioned about potsticker, I was forthrightly asking if this is a new food as the image of “potsticker” did not came into my mind so quickly (laughing). Yes, it is the Chinese pan-fried dumpling, in Chinese, we called it “Jiaozi” (饺子), or call it “Guo Tie” (锅贴), to be more exact and as direct translation of potsticker. They are called Gyoza, in Japanese, too.

The mention of potstickers fetched me with the idea of making my own “guo tie” from scratch, where I saw the making only once in my teenage when my grandma made it for the big family on occasion. More

Delicious Ham Rolls with Prawns & Vegetables

“Its sweetness and juiciness really whet your appetite”

So delightful to see my recipe creation appear in a popular women’s magazine – Her World (under 10-minute reader recipe column), in Oct 07 issue! It was also kinda sweet to be rewarded with a $150 gift hamper for my contribution. Yes.. :)

This is a simple dish with prawn, meat (ham), vegetable and mushroom, and it was very much likeable by everyone in the household. A tasty and nutritious dish which one would like it even if he/ she doesn’t take any green as the taste of the ham and prawn was over-powering enough to cover up the greens. More
