Sweet Potato Chicken Pie


I've made pies with potatoes before but haven't tried with a mix of potatoes and sweet potatoes.  Spotted this recipe from a Coles magazine which spurred me to give it a try.  It wasn't bad really.  I think that the sweetness of the sweet potatoes did blend well with the savoury filling.  All in all, a comforting one-dish meal for my family.

  9. I can see how this would work, Cheah. I made cod fish cakes the other night with both kinds of potatoes and it worked out really well. The sweet potatoes add a subtle sweet taste that is very interesting...Your meal looks so much better than mine did though. Mine fish cakes were messy, lol...

    Thanks for sharing...

    1. I did fish cakes before, yes can be messy. Must try again but cod fish here is super expensive!

    2. I used leftover cod, not very much Cheah. I've been thinking about trying this method with canned tuna too, just for the heck of it!

Yam Puff ~ 'Wu Kok'

This is one of the must-have items whenever we go for have dim-sum ...... 'Wu Kok' or Yam dumplings.  Initially I had a hard time struggling with the soft and sticky dough in the hot and stuffy kitchen, but fortunately after chilling it in the fridge for 50 mins., it could be 'man-handled' quite easily!  Phew, not too bad as this is my first attempt!

Mixed Fruit Bread ~ 杂果面包

Homemade bread is always more nutritious than those bought from the supermarkets.  For one I don't add any bread improver or preservatives to my bread making.  Store bought ones may be fresh but they have loads of preservatives added to prolong their shelf life.  When I make bread I can control the ingredients that I want to put into my bread and I can customise the flavour and I find that kneading the dough can be quite therapeutic too!
