This simple and delicious treat tastes best if you use fresh ground cinnamon and make sure you don’t over-toasted the bread. I came up with this easy recipe because I was too lazy to melt the butter or to spread it on the bread. Crispy caramelized toast is a good way to use the almost stale bread or even a little stale one. Little princesses have tiny hands, so I cut the toast in little triangles, cooked some cinnamon apples to serve with it, just scoop a little apples on top of the toast, yummy snack is done.
One of my favorite street food in Hong Kong is egg waffles. They are tiny ball-shaped waffles, fluffy inside but crispy on the outside, you pull them apart and eat them one by one, yummy. I used to buy them everyday after school for snack, the hawker made them fresh to order, so I got to watch how was it made and learned a little techniques here and there.
So glad to find the egg waffles pan in the USA finally, I can try to make this yummy street food at home. The best part is to see my girls happy faces when they stuffed their mouth full of little waffles. They enjoyed watching mommy make the cute yummy waffle balls , just like I used to watch the hawker cooked them in the street, like mother like daughters. They learned stories about mommy’s school life in Hong Kong, and how to say egg waffles in Cantonese (雞蛋仔，which pronounces “kite down jei “), it was so much fun.
This is another dip for new year eve snack – Artichokes and Spinach Dip. I always like it but never make it at home. Honestly, artichoke is a really new ingredient to me, so glad the only 2 attempts (including this time) came out good.
New year started. Let’s start a new blog too. This is my first post here, I will move some old recipes here soon.
New year parties were just over a few day ago, this was one of my new creations. First time making a clam dipping sauce, I only tried it once many years ago. Hubby wanted some chips and dips, so I made this baked clam dipping sauce.
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.
Fruits Salad is so simple, no cooking skill is needed. It is so colorful, healthy and nutritious, a great breakfast choice, afternoon snack or serve it as a side. Kids love it so much, watch out they will eat yours too.
It was Alexis big day yesterday. She is now 4.5 years old and passed the evaluation to move up to the next level in gymnastics school, which means her hard work and all those practices at home (she did it all by herself with anyone asked her to, what a self-motivated little one) had paid off. She was so proud of herself and so did mommy. She improved a lot within the last 2 weeks, even I was impressed. To celebrate her little milestone and show my support for her hard-working, I arranged a movie date with the girls (we watched Rapunzel), served them these girly and pretty pink kettle popcorn for snacks. Everyone had a good time and they said it was the best day ever.
My husband wanted to have chicken pot pie but don’t want the puff pastry on top of the soup bowl like traditional one. So I turned the puff pastry sheets into this tasty appetizer and served as dipping bread sticks on the side. The girls loved it so much and finished them within 5 minutes.
The little princesses love to cook with mommy. They have been helping me prepare and cook some simple food since 2 years old. This rosemary garlic bread is one of their favorites, helped me so many times before, mommy is only allowed to place them in the oven while they get the bread ready to bake.
