Yoghurt Custard with Mixed Berries01

I like all sorts of berries, blueberries, strawberries and raspberries. Not only they have amazing health benefits with lots of antioxidants that can boost our immune system, but also they are juicy and tasty. With some berries, this baked custard was turned into a very balanced delicious dessert to wrap up my dinner. The dessert was even more superb by adding some yoghurt. It’s absolutely a guilt-free dessert. It can be served warm or cold. Yet I couldn’t wait to taste, so it’s gone in a few minutes once it’s out from the oven.

Sago Dumplings with Red Bean Filling01

Dragon boat festival is coming around the corner, exactly falling on this weekend this year. We will surely have some traditional savoury Cantonese sticky rice dumplings. As I was itching to make some sweet ones for my family as well. I soaked some sago for a little while, then wrapped in with red bean filling. Voila, the steamed sago dumplings looked so spectacular and went so well with the fragrant Osmanthus syrup. Immediately I brought a batch for a family gathering. And it’s gone so fast. The second batch is reserved as afternoon snack on the weekend.

How To Wrap a Pyramid shaped Sticky Rice Dumpling

Pyramid shaped Sticky Rice Dumpling01

Dragon Boat Festival (端午節) is coming on the weekend this year. Get ready to make some sticky rice dumplings (zongzi 鹹肉糭) to celebrate? When I first learnt to make zongzi, I took the easiest way. Here's the recipe I posted previously. It only needs three pieces of bamboo leaves to wrap a zongzi. If you jump on the bandwagon to try making zongzi at home, I highly recommend the easiest method.

I reckon this pyramid shaped sticky rice dumpling is the most beautiful one. It’s the traditional shape mostly made by Hong Kong people. You need four pieces of bamboo leaves to make a dumpling. It sounds too many things to manage. But don’t be nervous. I posted a tutorial video below the recipe. It’s not that difficult as you thought.

Slow Cooked BBQ Pork Ribs01

These are the best slow-cooked pork ribs I’ve ever had. The nearly fell-off-the-bone pork meat with the sweet and slightly tangy sauce will make you want more. The taste is well-balanced and the meat is not fatty at all. With minimum preparation, all the cooking can be done in one pot simmering on stove. If you have a slow cooker, draw it out from your pantry to serve you. This recipe will work perfectly either with a pot on stove or a slow cooker. This dish can be served with steamed rice or salad.

Water chestnut cake is a must-eat snack during Chinese New Year. But I won’t wait a whole year to enjoy crunchy and tasty water chestnuts. Its mild sweetness is so pleasant. They can be eaten on its own. For cooking, I’d like to put some in my pork patties or make myself a sweet treat, like this water chestnut sweet soup. This sweet soup can be served hot or cold. It’s comforting on cold days and refreshing on hot days. Oh yeah, the egg drops are the highlight too, feeding my stomach as well as my eyes. This sweet soup looks very appealing, isn’t it?
