Ginger and Brown Sugar Tea (Chinese Health Tea)

Ginger Brown Sugar Tea01

When it turns cold, it’s good to warm up your body with a healthy warm tea. I especially like this simple Chinese ginger brown sugar drink. It tastes not too sweet with a touch of ginger taste. Ginger has a wide range of antioxidant properties as well as helps reduce digestive disorders. The extra ingredient I added, dried longan pulp, is good to calm your nerves and help you have a sound sleep. Not only does brown sugar sweeten your tea with a molasses flavour, it also gives you more minerals, like calcium, potassium and iron. In Chinese medicine, this tea can help relieve menstrual cramps.

Tofu and Pork Mince Patties

Tofu and Pork Mince Patties01

Tofu and pork are perfect partners. As for this dish, the tofu, adding a refreshing note, helps turn the pork mince patties even more tender with moist. On the plate, a bed of crispy and crunchy lettuce to balance the texture will make you feel like never having enough of those pan-fried patties. Each bite of it that dipped in the delicious sauce will make your taste buds dance. Both my hubby and I found those four tofu and pork meat patties are really not enough. I have to double the portion when I make this dish next time.

Flourless Nutella Cake01

If you’re a big fan of Nutella like me and my daughter, this is a Nutella cake recipe for you. No flour is needed. With only 2 ingredients, you can make this yummy cake on the go. The main ingredients of Nutella are hazelnut and cocoa. So, you can imagine this yummy cake is full of chocolate flavour. Oh another important kitchen gadget you might need is an electric mixer that will make the job done perfectly and easily. Or else, you need more elbow grease to beat the eggs with a balloon whisk. Sounds easy enough? Give it a go then.
