The other day when i bought two bundles of Chinese baby spinach from the usual stall at the market, not sure why the boss gave me extra one bundles for free (maybe due to i am their loyal customer ^_^). With this extra spinach, i immediately decided to make this pie that i saw from the Food & Travel magazine (i bought this magazine because Nami Just One Cookbook was one of the recipe contributor).
After i eaten a very nice Borek during my trip to Queen Victoria Market Melbourne, i have been thinking to try the similar filling that using spinach and cheese..I prefer savoury pie more than sweet pie..
I am glad that this pie turned out so good, love the flaky and crumbly crust , and yummy spinach and cheese filling!
Today again about tomato ^_^. I have to post by this week because next week is school holiday and we are going to visit a state in Malaysia that we have never been there before, Kelantan (Let me know if you have any nice recommendation where to find good food or nice places to visit)..
Tomato noodles is famous in Sungai Lembing Pahang, and they use homemade Lembing noodles. I can't call my dish as Lembing tomato noodles since i did not use Lembing noodles..so i just called it as Chinese braised tomato noodles..
This stuffed cabbage rolls was inspired and created after i saw a Guangdong famous dish cabbage rolls 津白卷 recipe (filling is using meat ) was published in a Chinese news papper and a another cooking show using tomato and scrambled eggs as the filling for dumplings..So i combine these two ideas and turned into this stuffed tomato and eggs cabbage rolls. A plain, light and healthy dish , Chinese said 清淡可口..
After every Pai Tin Kong celebration (CNY day 9) , my mom sure give me one pomelo. Usually i don't buy pomelo because kids don't appreciate this fruit. When i was thinking to make this dessert using the pomelo given by my mom the other day. I saw Jessie also sharing this dessert using so beautiful pinky pomelo. When i was trying to peel this pomelo, I was hoping my pomelo will be look pink like her but i still got the same ordinary plain pomelo, so sad ^_^..
Yesterday when i watching a travel show talking about Greece Santorini has the best sunset in the world. Then reminded me of my last year Bali trip which i have almost forgotten to update after the 1st update. So today i also want to share with you the best sunset i have ever seen, sunset at Tanah Lot, Bali..If i have a opportunity to see sunset in Santorini next time, then i will tell you which is the best sunset, LOL!
And you must visit Tanah Lot if you happen to visit Bali, one of my favourite place during this trip !!
We had this Birthday longevity noodles when we were having Chinese New Year lunch together with few relatives at Banting. The other day i tried to imitated this noodles at home for a light lunch..If for Hokkien people like me, usually we will have mee suah soup when Birthday but those restaurant outside usually serve this type of Birthday noodles. Nowadays we can easily have this type of noodles in any days.
There are various version of these noodles served in different restaurants such as mee suah (flour vermicelli), yee mien and etc. But one common in this noodle is that cooked thick gravy with vegetables, seafood and meat and pouring on top of the noodles. The version we tried was using wanton noodles.
The idea of making this Baby ABC soup has been in my mind for quite some time after seeing in Wendy (Table for two or more)'s blog. Today when i was doing my marketing at the Tesco, i saw cocktail potatoes and small red onion from India, immediately i decided to make this soup. The usual ABC soup we made is normal size of ingredients, but this Baby ABC soup is using all mini size of ingredients such as baby carrots, baby corns, baby tomatoes, baby potatoes and baby onions (not shallots)..
Enjoy this hot noodles soup in this recent hot weather was not a good idea, my daughter and I were sweating like no body business after we finished our bowl of Kuey Teow noodles soup, Hahaha. Nevertheless, this was a bowl of yummy noodles soup, i think i can open a stall outside ^_^.
According to here, Johor style Kuey Teow soup is mainly consist of minced pork which made the soup more tasty.
After few days of busy activities (response to the inquiry for my kedai runcit , arranging order for my kedai runcit and sending gifts to the giveaway winners & etc). Today i just got some free time to steam this banana cake that i have bookmarked when i first saw in makcik manggis that i know i will like it. I made the right choice, this cake is less oily, nice banana fragrance, not too sweet and spongy..yummy..
