    Yes,my mum used to make this too. Many years ago it was the rage to have fresh'Gum Jum'in stir-fry. Fresh ones are available in Camerons, it's a flower, bright yellow in colour, just pluck it before it ripens. But now this dish has faded.

  6. I love this dish! I would have this with a condiment of sliced chili padi, soy sauce and a squeeze of lime juice! Sounds weird? But I love to dip the chicken in the soy sauce and top with the chili padi! :)

    Steamed chicken is quite common in Chinese cuisine. You may give it a try to see whether you like it.

    Yes, sounds weird to me. I'd prefer your dip to go with poached chicken.

    I think most boys do not like steamed dishes, fried would be their choice.

Chicken Floss Cake ~ 鸡肉松蛋糕

It's normal to find buns coated with meat floss in any bakery, but yet to find a meat floss coated piece of cake.  I saw this Chicken Floss Cake on youtube and was eager to give this a shot.  The recipe is quite similar to a chiffon cake and I was curious to find out the taste which should be slightly sweetish and saltish.  Wouldn't it be weird, I wonder.  But it turned out that the taste is rather unique with a light and soft texture and my family members gave me a thumbs up and asked for more!

Lavender lemon cookies ~ 薰衣草柠檬曲奇

These dainty looking Lavender lemon cookies have a subtle taste of lavender, not too much for I used  fresh leaves instead of dried flowers.  They are buttery, taste like shortbread with a light floral aroma.  They are simple, cute and sure to impress.  Try gifting them at a Christmas cookie swap or great to give as a gift during the coming festive season.
