This is a super easy light dish which has appeared in many blogs. I didn't use much oil to cook this and occasionally it will appear on the table whenever I prepare white porridge, much to everyone's delight!
The classic 'Victoria Sandwhich' .... an 'oldie' but certainly a goodie and have you ever wondered how it got its name? There's a history behind this Victoria sponge cake. It was named after Queen Victoria, who favoured a slice of the sponge cake with her afternoon tea. A traditional Victoria sponge consists of jam sandwhiched between 2 layrs of sponge cakes, the top of the cake is not iced or decorated. If you wish to know more of this history, then read it from here.
One can easily detect Herbal Tea Eggs in the shopping mall especially in areas near the supermarket or food court. Sniff, sniff, you just follow your nose and the smell will eventually lead you to the outlet having these black, cracked, ugly looking eggs bubbling in a big rice pot of black liquid. Many of these are found in Chinese medical product outlets, placed in a corner right at the entrance.
Vegetarian Soup ..... as the name implies, this is a very nutritious, healthy fat-free soup and yes it's meatless.
Therefore, it's very suitable for people who are on a vegetarian diet be it due to religious, health reasons or otherwise. On top of that this veggie soup needs very little effort and it's easy to whip up!
When I saw the post of Strawberry Cupcakes from Biren's blog @ 'Roti n Rice', I was so impressed with the pictures, especially the cross-section of the cupcake exposing the red, juicy strawberry. It was so pretty and without much hesitation bookmarked it.
This is steamed whole chicken with Chinese herbs and sauce. Steaming the chicken wrapped in foil, helps to retain the natural juice from the chicken thus enhancing the taste. Tasted somewhat like the Salted Baked Chicken except that this is wet with more gravy!
This is my first attempt at making this 'Savoury Steamed Pumpkin Cake'. I was a bit hesitant in the beginning and after googling here and there for the recipe, decided upon trying it out. Fortunately, it turned out well and family members gave the thumbs up. Phew ....... worth all the effort, chopping and frying in this weather!
Many of you who have been ardent followers or readers of MaryMoh's ~ 'Keep learning keep smiling' blog would have known that I met up with her in London, Westfield recently. I was indeed very excited when she confirmed that she was available for a meet up, a 'blind' date so to speak. Oh, not totally 'blind' because I've a vague idea of how she looks like from her picture in her profile but she doesn't have a clue about me. How interesting! I told her that we'll be playing 'hide and seek'!
I said that I'll definitely be the first one to spot her but she replied she'll arrive early and it won't be too difficult to spot Asians with black hair! I was early too and initially I couldn't find the 'venue' of our meeting place as Westfield had other entrances and it was huge. Somehow I managed and as I was walking, from a distance I spotted an Asian petite lady walking towards my direction, bag in hand and her signature hairstyle ...... ah, it's her! I walked up to her and asked ..... MaryMoh? She stopped, turned round and we laughed! She's such a nice, friendly and warm person, very comfortable to talk to and my family took an instant liking to her, and to my girls, she's sweet Aunty Mary!
