Banana Chiffon Cake





"A Banana a day keeps the doctor away" - as compared to an Apple, it has four times protein, twice the carbohydrates, three times the phosphorous, five times vitamin 'A' and iron and twice the other vitamins and minerals. Being an inexpensive supplement, it can also help overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions, thus making it a must add to our daily diet.

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake ~ 2013

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake was my dad's perennial favourite.  At that time I couldn't understand why this festive traditional mooncake was most enjoyed by the older folks.  But nowadays, I too have slowly acquired the taste for this sweet, salty and nutty variety.  These cakes are best cut in  small wedges, savoured by small delicate bites and not by the mouthfuls, and they are best enjoyed with a pot of hot Chinese tea.

Curry Chicken Puff ~ 咖哩鸡角

This is a 'cheat' version of curry puffs.  Why do I say 'cheat'?  Because the puff pastries were store bought.  It's very much easier to make these curry puffs snack with instant pastry for if I were to make the pastries from scratch it's going to be very tedious.  Also, shaping and baking them in a muffin pan is less time consuming.  Enjoy!
