Aromatic Pan-Fried Five Spice Meat Cake (香煎五香肉饼)

“The very own homemade meat cake to be marked 100% by your kids!”

Just like what my reader, Anne, told me that her son rated her cooking with 100 marks, for some pork dishes cooked with my recipes. I created this pork meat cake,and hope Anne (and any of you) could try and receive compliments from her loved ones again (winking smile)! My little one did praise me for making this meat cake for her.. As for her who does not really like pork, she loved this meat cake so much! This meat cake creates aromas in the bites. And I loved it with a touch of five spice flavour, not too strong but enough to taste its fragrance. However, not many children like five spice flavour, if your kid doesn’t, omit the five spice powder and substitute with some ground white pepper. Yeah, just call it a pan-fried meat cake dish will do (smile). More

Cutie Bear Chinese-Style Steamed Egg (熊仔蒸水蛋)

“Add a little bit of surprises to your usual steamed egg”

Seriously, it wasn’t easy to cook a perfect steamed egg dish, to me. It took me years to experiment this cooking. Even to-date, I had the egg steamed slightly too long at medium fire (should steam at low flame instead), caused slight imperfection on the presentation of my egg dish. The more runny (softer) texture you’re trying to achieve, the more difficult to have the egg smoothly steamed.. See, the surface was a little ‘uneven‘ and ‘bubbly‘ along the edges (sobbing)! More

Chocolate Cookies Recipe For Beginners

“Simple recipe for best homemade cookies. Beginner, you can do it!”

This is the simplest cookies recipe for first-timers and beginners. I am, one of the first timers in baking cookies, too (laughing)! Yes, this is the result of my first cookies baking. Yes, the cookies taste delicious. I brought them to the office the next day, to share with my colleagues. The feedback was good, and I have impressed them with these chocolate cookies, especially the texture. Shapes are kinda odd (I had square and round shapes from all 4 rounds of baking.. ha..), but taste is perfectly good. It feels so crispy to chew and the level of sweetness is just perfect for everyone. More
