Butter and Jam Cookies

by · 8 comments
These buttery cookies were dotted and filled with bright red plum jam. The slightly tangy taste of plum jam is just right to balance the no-so-sweet cookies.

While writing up this recipe and browsing these barbeque (BBQ) chicken wings, I was still salivating. What makes the homemade BBQ sauce special and good is that you can tailor-make the taste to suit your own palate.

This BBQ sauce is perfect to my family’s liking. The acidity is just right to balance the saltiness and sweetness with a mild kick. This sauce is also very versatile, going so well with meats.

This time I tried with chicken wings with satisfied results. I didn’t even want to waste any sauce in the bowl by mixing with some steamed rice for my dinner, making the fresh soft steamed rice tasted even better.

Wood Ear and Chicken Soup

by · 3 comments
Wood ear is a kind of edible fungus often used in Chinese cooking. Wood ear is black in colour, so looks not quite appealing to eyes. Yet, we can’t underestimate its value to our health. It can help lower blood pressure and cholesterol.

I often use wood ear in my cooking, like Chinese New Year traditional dish, stir-fry with chicken, make the classic hot and sour soup and imitation shark fin soup.  If you feel like having a vegetarian dish, wood ear will work with many vegetables. You can make this Stir Fried Bean Sprouts, Carrots & Wood Ear Fungus dish. When I make dumplings, I also like putting in some wood ear to add a texture in the fillings. Ever thought about making san choi bao (lettuce wraps) with wood ears? They taste really good with roast duck meat too.
