Apple and Pear Soup ~ 苹果梨汤


This is an easy to make, simple comfort soup.  The apples and pears help to soothe and moisten the throat and lungs which are what we need right now to combat this extremely hot, humid and hazy weather.  I added in some lean pork and seedless red dates which help to enhance the flavour and make the soup sweet.

  2. Hi Soke Hah, I like this kind of soup with red dates. We eat up everything. This should be easy to cook if I use the thermal cooker. Thanks for sharing.

Yoghurt Fruitcake

T is the festive season again and the all-time favourite for X'mas is undoubtedly the ubiquitous fruit cake.  This Yoghurt Fruitcake caught my eye when I was browsing through a Food and Travel magazine.  As I've never baked a fruit cake with yoghurt before, I was very eager to try. 

Tau Yu Bak ~ Braised Pork Belly in Soy Sauce ( 豆油肉 )

  'Tau you bak' in Hokkien or 'Braised Pork Belly in Soy Sauce' in Cantonese is a very homey dish.  The main sauces are light and dark soy sauce with the addition of some spices like cinnamon, pepper and star anise and in this recipe I also added some oyster sauce, which is optional.  The addition of hard boiled eggs infused with the intense gravy makes this a very delicious and tasty dish.  Pair it with some sambal belacan to make it more appetising and appealing.

Sunflower Oatmeal Cookies ~ 向日葵麦片曲奇饼

  These cookies are crunchy on the outside and a bit soft and chewy on the inside.  They are healthy cookies with sunflower seeds and whole grains giving a unique and delicious flavour.  I used instant oats in this recipe and they tend to soften the cookies somewhat but if you prefer them to be more crunchy when you consume the next day, just pop them into the oven toaster for a minute or two. You may like to add this onto your CNY to-do list of cookies.
