Vietnamese Sweet and Sour Fish Recipe

A special thanks to my beautiful manicurist Kristi,  for not only taking good care of my nails but helping me get fresh seafood and taught me how to make this super yummy authentic Vietnamese dish. I never tried to make Vietnamese dish at home, expect spring roll, so I was really excited to learn something new. With her permission to share this recipe with you, I wrote down the steps and seasonings I used as close as she taught me. Please taste repeatedly as you season the sauce because all fruits and canned tomatoes taste different.  Hope you enjoy this delicious dish like we do. Enjoy.

Fluffy Pancake Recipe (Make 8)

I have been trying to figure out how to make fluffy pancake for a long time. Saw this method on TV from American Test Kitchen and Iron Chef Michael Symon from the Chew, so I decided to give it another try. This recipe requires to separate the eggs into whites and yolks, whisk the whites and fold it in at the end. Sound like should be more fluffy, however, when I used it  to make the Hong Kong style egg waffles, I didn’t notice enough different, so I decided not to bother with the extra step. After created 2 okay pancake recipes, I made up 2 other recipes today and one of them using this whisk egg whites method. To my surprise, the pancakes came out really fluffy and soft, much different than the other one. (Compare photos at the very bottom of this post if you are interested)

Hong Kong Street Food – Rice Noodles Recipe

Hong Kong is a food heaven with countless delicious food, from street food to Michelin starred restaurants, you can pretty much taste the world in this little city. One of my favorite street food, some times serve in restaurants (dim sum or congee restaurants), is rice noodles loaded with sweet soy sauce, peanut sauce and hoisin sauce (the original “sweet sauce” is not available in US), sprinkles with some toasted sesame, the most traditional way to serve it. If you like it spicy, add a few drop of Sriracha wouldn’t hurt.

Easy French Onion Soup Recipe (3 ingredients in 30 minutes)

I tried French onion soup once in a chain restaurant 7 years ago, that was the first time and last time for me. Since that bad experience, I told my husband this soup would never make it in my kitchen. One day out of nowhere, my husband had this soup in mind and requested it for dinner. So much for the “never” like many things, I made this super easy and crazy good French onion soup to go with a spring mix salad. It was a hit and changed my opinion of French Onion Soup forever. My daughters loved it so much, they asked me to make this soup just a few day later. This healthy and yummy soup need 3 ingredients only and take less than 30 minutes from scratch to the table.
