Savoury Chicken Crispies ~ CNY 2012




Sweet goodies are usually served to visitors during Chinese New Year and very rarely do we see anything that is savoury.  So for this year, I made something different ~ Savoury Chicken Crispies.  They taste delicious and family members do agree with me that this is something different from the norm and gave the thumbs up!









These savoury cookies have a slight tinge of chicken flavour and I'm sure they'll stand out amongst their sweetie counterparts during this festive season.

Chocolate chip banana bread ~ 香蕉巧克力蛋糕

This is an easy peasy recipe where no mixer is required.  Method is more or less like making muffins.  The texture of this banana loaf is soft, moist and there is a perfect blend between the aromatic bananas and chocolate chips.

Topo Map Cake ~ 地图蛋糕

I think it is more appropriate to name this cake just as 'Topo map cake' for the layers in this cake really look like a map.  Layering this cake can be quite challenging as a great deal of patience is required.  But patience and endurance do pay and after the cake is baked and once you sliced it up, you'll be so pleased to see the pretty layers and the colour combination.  Not only does it look awesome, the texture is good too, soft and moist.
