Coconut Macaroons


Coconut Macaroons01

These coconut macaroons smell pleasant, taste not too sweet, crisp outside and chewy inside. For those who like gluten free treats, these macaroons will be a good one to keep in your cooking list. I ate three in a row when they were straight out from oven. It’s perfect as snack with a cup of tea or coffee, or as finger food for a party.

Braised Chu Hou Chicken Wings (柱侯雞翼)


Braised Chu Hou Chicken Wings01

If you love the classic Hong Kong hot pot dish, stewed brisket with Chu Hou paste (柱侯牛腩) like me, you will like this braised chicken wings. The taste of Chu Hou paste goes really well with the chicken wings. It’s wonderfully delicious. The wings and the sauce were gone faster than I thought. This dish is so perfect for big fans of rice like my family.

Salt and Pepper Chicken Wings


Salt and Pepper Chicken Wings01

This was one of the celebration dishes I made on the day of Mid-Autumn festival. Oh, goodness me, it's been a while until I finally post the recipe. I guess it’d be better to post some time after the festival as this dish is very versatile throughout the year and you can whip it up in 15 minutes. If you or your family is a fan of chicken wings, you have to give it a go. It’s also a life-saver on a hectic day. You can refrigerate the marinated chicken wings well ahead, then pan fry them whenever you’re ready. The key to making this dish successful and delicious is not to over cook the chicken wings. When they are just done, the chicken meat is succulent and juicy.
