Steamed free-range chicken with chicken essence ~ 鸡精蒸鸡


Essence of chicken is supposed to be beneficial to health and if you're feeling tired, taking a bottle of chicken essence will  help boost up your energy.  Unfortunately I dislike taking the essence straight from the bottle as I do not fancy the raw taste.  So, I poured in a bottle to this dish and it really helped to give some 'oomph' and value added taste to this chicken dish!

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. 

Chocolate and Matcha Chiffon Cake ~ 巧克力抹茶戚风蛋糕

  One of my family's favourite to have for breakfast or tea is the evergreen Chiffon Cake, be it in whatever flavour.   I have posted different flavours of chiffon cakes on my blog and this time I used matcha powder, and chocolate powder mixed with matcha powder not only for flavour but to create some swirl patterns.  As always chiffon cakes are light, airy, soft and most delectable.
