Steamed Mini Abalone ~ 蒸小鲍鱼

Today is the Seventh Day of Lunar New Year which is traditionally referred to as 'Renri' or  ( 日 ) or human day, the birthday of mankind. So this is the day for everyone to celebrate their birthdays. I didn't prepare a big feast for the family and since I had some frozen mini abalones from Tesco, I attempted to steam them instead of cooking them in a soup. The tedious job is the cleaning of the abalones and also the shells but after that, preparing them for steaming is rather quick and easy. The result? Reaping the fruits of labour, these mini abalones are crunchy and yummy !

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.
