Beancurd Skin Roll (Fu Pei Guen)

I am sure whoever loves Chinese food will automatically falls in love with "Dim Sum" too.  Dim sum is a style of Cantonese cuisine prepared in small bite-sized portions of food that traditionally served in small steamer baskets or on small plates.  There so many varieties of them, which normally are carted around the Chinese restaurant for the customers to choose while seated at their tables.

Today I am going share a recipe on one of my favorites dim sum - Beancurd Skin Roll or "Fu Pei Guen" in Cantonese.  This dim sum normally can be served in two different way - deep fried or steamed after deep fried.  I love both of them, so, I will share both ways.

As I had just got a new meat mincer just a few days ago, I wish to try it out.  It does not fails me, as the texture of the minced meat is so much better compared with those I bought directly from the market.  It just blend well with the prawn meat and other ingredients.  Oh yes, before I forgot, to make the fillings more smoother, I used mixtures of minced and ground meat.  

Believe me, it's easy to prepare and is not as complicated as you thought and am sure you will love them than those serve in the restaurants.

Carrot Walnut Chocolate Chips Muffins

I been craving for muffins lately.  I used making them every weekend because of my work, that need to do lots of demonstrations on ovens many years ago.  It could be that, that had stopped me from making them again in my own kitchen.  Well, those desire and fun of baking them are back lately.  

Those outside muffins normally are not up to my desired taste.  Therefore, I would  make it as my  this weekend project.  Muffins are great for breakfast on the go or as your late-morning snack and of course it will be perfect for your hi-tea too.  There are lots of variations of tastes.   The one that I am going to share with you all, are not too sweet, even though it has chocolate chips in it and has a great combination of carrot and the crunchy of walnuts.

This is another easy to make recipe and it suitable for every one at home or any occasion.

Mandarin Pork Ribs

Hi everyone, I am back after taking a month long of break, as I was away from home for almost three weeks.  I had a good bonding time with my family members during the Chinese New Year celebrations and right after that I was adapting in a new working environment.  As I am more settle down with everything now, is time for me to back to my kitchen.

As the Chinese New Year celebrations had just over, I am sure most of the Chinese families will still have some Mandarin oranges leftover in the fridge.  Well, I have made use it to come out with a tantalizing dish - Mandarin Pork Ribs.

For those who loves the citrus taste in your food, this recipe can be your consideration.  I used the fresh juice from the Mandarin oranges not only on the sauce of glaze, but also when I do my pork ribs marinating.   It's did not fail me, I got the taste that I desired!
