  1. I used to have lots of steamed chicken with preserved black beans, and yours with goji is definitely better and healthier.

  2. Hi Angie
    I've never tried steamed chicken with black beans, braised, yes, with bittergourd. This dish doesn't entail too much oil and free range chicken aren't that fatty.

    Yes, it goes very well with rice, and quick and easy to prepare.

    I normally add the wine after I've turned off the fire, so that the wine won't evaporate in the heat.

  8. Hi Kristy
    Yes, we have to cook to their liking, otherwise we'll have to end up eating it all up, then our waistline will expand. Actually, I like salted fish, but have stopped taking it for a long, long time, not so good to take preserved food.
    Oh, thanks so much for the Friendship Button, have finally installed it in my blog, with Elin's guidance. So kind of her to help me out.

  9. Aunty, maybe you could include an enlarged picture of the herbs that you use in your cooking (like the dong quai). It helps tremendously to see the ingredient as it may not be our common pantry item :)

  Wool Roll Bread ... its popularity is booming and bursting the seams of Facebook and Instagram.  Every day you see new posts of it, with different ways of making it as well as an endless assortment of fillings to experiment with.  I too have been browsing the internet to research these various methods and their outcomes.  What is it that makes Wool Woll Bread so crazily popular?  To satisfy my curiosity, I tried my hand at making it and was very happy with the results.  I love seeing the bread strands when I pull apart the bread to reveal the meat floss filling and I enjoy how soft and chewy the bread is.  Jump on the bandwagon, folks, you won't regret it!

Marble Butter Cake ~ 大理石牛油蛋糕

This is one of the most popular Butter Cake recipes among fellow bloggers and I've read many reviews about this cake.  Credit must be given to Mrs S K Ng for so generously sharing her recipe.   This cake is moist, fluffy, soft, not overly sweet and the texture is just right.  Must admit that this is the best butter cake that I've ever tasted.  I tweaked the recipe to make a Marble Butter Cake instead.

Bika Ambon Panggang ~ 印尼糕

Kuih Bika Ambon or Honeycomb cake is an Indonesian dessert and from the outset it looks quite challenging to attempt baking this cake in order to achieve a honeycomb pattern.   There are many recipes online and I also googled for Indonesian recipes and watched the video on youtube.  I was looking for a recipe that is not so complicating but straightforward and I managed to come across Whattocooktoday's blog and found her recipe.  I was very delighted when the cake turned out to be a success.  Thanks, Marvellina!   Bika Ambon Panggang  ~   印尼糕 ( adapted from  'here'  with adjustments)   Ingredients for : - Yeast mixture 2 tsp dry yeast 1 Tbsp plain flour 1 Tbsp sugar 2 Tbsp warm water Coconut Milk 350 ml coconut milk 160 gm sugar 1/2 tsp turmeric powder 10 kaffir lime leaves (tear to smaller pieces) 2 lemon grass, bruised for flavour Cake Batter 180 gm tapioca flour 1/4 tsp salt 5 large eggs   Method Mix the ingredients in the Yeast mixture and set aside to let it ferment.
