Honey glazed Char Siew (3) 蜜汁叉烧

I have made Honey Maltose Char Siew and Chicken Char Siew before and this is another version of char siew,  glazed with honey.  I like my char siew to be slightly sweet and sticky and without the addition of red colouring.   Sliced up to serve, this juicy, tender char siew pairs very well with rice or noodles.

Angel Food Cake ~ 天使蛋糕

  Angel Food Cake is a meringue based sponge cake with no butter, no oil and no baking powder or any rising agent.  It's aerated texture comes from the beaten egg whites.  This cake is soft, cloud-like, pillowy with a slight tinge of orange and is great to serve as dessert with some whipped cream, berries and in my case I chose grapes.
