Guest Post ~ Hazelnut mini loaves


I'm very happy to have been asked to do a guest post for Shirley of 'Enriching your kid'.  But what to make to entice the kids has got my head cracking.  A clinical psychologist by profession, Shirley has a lot of tips on nutrients for growing-up kids in her blog.  You can also read up on the various spices and herbs that she uses in her cooking, baking and other interesting recipes as well.  Do visit  'Enriching your kid' for nutritious and healthy eating and to read my post  ~ 'Hazelnut Mini loaves'.  Thank you!

Vietnamese Caramelised Chicken ~ 越南焦糖鸡

This is a quickie and delicious chicken dish, braised in caramelised sauce.  The ingredients are not too difficult to find and if you can't find kaffir lime leaves, you can omit them altogether.  This dish serves well with white rice and a side veggie dish.  Try it!

Matcha/Green Tea Pound Cake ~ 抹茶磅蛋糕

I was so pleased when I saw the nice green colour of this pound cake after I removed it from the oven, for true to the recommendation by the lady at the shop where I usually get my ingredients, she assured me that I won't be disappointed.  Yes, it is green and not pale or brownish.  The homemade red bean paste complimented well with the green tea and the cake stayed moist and soft even after three days kept in an airtight container, refrigerated.
