Nut-Hugging Bear Cookies 小熊抱杏仁饼干_2016 CNY cookies 年饼_金猴报春

When i first see this cookie, immediately bookmark to make them because they are so adorable. It was shared by a Japanese chef Maa . Before i can make them, i have to get the cutter first.Later i realized that not just any bear cookie cutter is suitable to make them, some are too short and some are tall.

Egg White Plain Loaf Bread 蛋白土司

The other day one reader left a comment in a very old post (way back 2009), said everyone should try this very soft bread. This is a bread recipe that i have totally forgotten. After i re-check back the recipe, and realized that this recipe is using egg white. Since that day i have leftover egg white, so i go ahead to modify this old recipe into plain loaf bread.

I have so long did not have this Hei Zho 虾枣 which is one of the Hokkien common dish serve during CNY.

But don't know since when she has stopped making this dish during CNY but instead she made the Hokkien meat balls which is nice too.
