This Chinese tea, handed down from my mum, can help promote eye health. If browsing computer or reading a book for a while, we might feel our eyes itchy or dry.

This Chinese tea, handed down from my mum, can help promote eye health.

If browsing computer or reading a book for a while, we might feel our eyes itchy or dry. Sometimes when we work in an air-conditioned room for too long, our eyes also get dried as a result that our vision becomes not as sharp as it should be.

I often make this tea once or twice a week for prevention.

Shaoxing Goji Chicken (花雕杞子雞煲)

by · 16 comments
Traditionally, this Shaoxing Goji Chicken is a claypot dish made in winter days. I reckon this dish can be enjoyed on any days throughout the year. It’s so tasty with splendid aroma, perfectly goes with steamed rice.

I like the colour contrast of this chicken dish. It’s so appealing to the family’s eyes. Once it’s served on our dining table, everyone was eager to dig in and taste.

How nice would it be when having a tasty dish of chicken curry with a bowl of hot rice?

Chicken and Sweet Potato Curry01

I always love to cook this Chicken and Sweet Potato Curry with Thai red curry paste. The curry paste is handy to use and got all the necessary spices in it already. Sometimes going for such a modern convenience is a good ending of a hectic day with a tasty, yummy, juicy dish for dinner like this.

This dish looks so humble, yet with rich flavours absorbed by the sweet potatoes. Oh, I nearly forget to mention the little greens. They are our favourite extras in curry too.

When I traveled on a bus one day during my holidays in Hong Kong, I saw “Road Show” that was a TV program, showing former Hong Kong governor Chris Patten also liked eating egg tarts. There are two kinds of tart shells, one is puff pastry-like (酥皮底), the other cookie-like(牛油皮底). The governor liked the latter, just like me. Haha…

Chocolate Swirl Marble Pound Cake (Plus Video)

I’ve been quite into swirl marble cake recently. Previously, I’ve made a matcha marble chiffon cake. The swirling process is the fun part. Each time I slice a swirl cake, my curiosity comes up quickly, wondering how the cake will look like inside.

The outcome was great. Taste-wise, the slight bitterness of dark chocolate is just right to balance the sweetness of the whole cake. It’s perfect for tea. So I brought it along to join a gathering and shared with my friends.

This lemon Job’s tears tea is both appetizing and refreshing. I love its lemony aroma and mild natural sweetness, helping to lift up my spirit.

Lemon Job's Tears Drink01

Job’s tears are traditionally used for ages in Chinese home cooking. It becomes a rising healthy star in the recent food scene. Not only it can help to improve indigestion, diarrhea, and trouble urinating, but also lower cholesterol and prevent cancer.
