Grape & Nectarine Relish

Grape & Nectarine Relish

I am not sure it is called preserve or relish, but it is either one of them. I get mixed up sometimes!!! I know relish is made from fruits and/or vegetables. Also has a sharp and spicy flavour, balanced by sweetness and tang. Today I have nectarines and grapes at a bargain price, so that’s it the main reason I decided to make.

Gingery Rhubarb & Blueberry Cobbler

Gingery Rhubarb & Blueberry Cobbler

Today I’m not going to make rhubarb crumble, I know that’s my all-time favourite crumble. I love rhubarb, not only it can help my health problem, also I love their tangy flavour.

So, I think I’ll have a change today. But I won’t change the rhubarb, it still my main character and add some blueberries for sweetness! I can reduce the sugar content for good reason.

Vegan Coconut and Avocado ‘Nice’Cream 純素椰子牛油果雪糕

What you guy want to do in the steaming hot weather? Are you still staying in the hot kitchen to cook and feed your families? Do you have to or do you love to? Tell me honestly!

Luckily, I don’t have to if I don’t want to sweat all over for cooking. 😍 :p Sometimes I just fancy a snack or a bowl of salad full of goodies, or maybe a bowl of cold noodle. What’s yours in the hot summer?

I started up my Instagram account more than a year since.  Looking up all my favourites bloggers is the most relaxing time. Also, is my normal routines now. I can catch lots of ideas for my cooking or baking.

This is one of the bloggers called: nice cream. Every time, he or she put the post on the IG, drooling is only my expression! I altered the recipe a bit and satisfy my intense cravings.

Vegan Coconut and Avocado ‘Nice’Cream 純素椰子牛油果雪糕 

Ingredient: 

  • 1 can Full fat Coconut milk, chill overnight
  • 2 Avocados, peeled and scoop out the flesh
  • 4 to 5 tbsp Maple syrup or Agave nectar
  • 2 tsp Fresh lemon juice

Method: 

  1. Put the avocados, maple syrup and lemon juice in a high-speed blender. Blend until smooth.
  2. Use an electric whisk to beat the coconut milk until smooth, mix with the avocado mixture.
  3. Store in an airtight container, and chill in the fridge for at least 2+ hours before serve.

Note: 

  • If you have any granola on hand, you can sprinkle some on top of the ‘ice’ cream with more syrup before serving. Or other chopped nuts will do!

Vegan Black Sesame Rolls II ~ 黑芝麻卷

Vegan Black Sesame Rolls II ~ 黑芝麻卷

Have you tried this before? Definitely, not many people remember it now. It is one of the traditional dim sums. If you like Chinese dim sums, do remember to save this recipe. It will disappear soon or later.

This is my second time to make this roll. Tune back to the first version was a long time ago, back to 2012. Wow, five years ago since.

The first recipe that I made was a bit thicker. Not easy to roll up but the taste was good though. The thinner the better! If anyone likes to try later, remember this little hint.

Vegan Passion-Fruit Panna Cotta ~ 熱情果奶凍

Vegan Passion-Fruit Panna Cotta ~ 熱情果奶凍

Panna cotta (Italian for “cooked cream”) is an Italian dessert of sweetened cream thickened with gelatin and molded. The cream may be aromatized with rum, coffee, vanilla, or other flavorings.

But if you want me to translate the Panna cotta to Chinese, I just called it ‘奶凍’!. Right? I don’t know even I search the web. They translated to a funny name that I’m not like it at all. Never mind! ‘Panna Cotta’ is nice enough to be named.

Vegan Carrot Cake with ‘Cream Cheese’ Frosting

Vegan Carrot Cake with ‘Cream Cheese’ Frosting

Since I made the hot-cross buns on good Friday, I get the craving to something sweet again.

A few days ago, the weather forecast said Sunday will have rain. Then we’re not willing (but have to) to cancel our annual barbecue party. Surprisingly, we saw the sun shining through the curtain in this morning. Although it is still a bit of windy and chilly. Nevertheless, it still sunny though.
