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.

What a wonderful weather around us, at least, such waiting for a long, long freezing winter more than 6 months.
Can’t wait to dig out the veg patch, sowing the kale seeds, beet-root seeds, butternut squash and some kind of green vegetables as well, all are ready to get more sunshine and waiting to sprout from the ground. I do make a wish to the snug will keep away my plants, but unfortunately, they’ve been there already. It can tell because they leave some shiny trail around the patch, and they have been stalking a few of my young plants already. I hate them, sorry for my words, but they’re so nasty. Don’t know how to get rid of them not to eat all my plants.
Hello all, I love to share a wonderful recipe for you today and this formula has held back in my old precious recipe box for more than 20 years since. As a long history, but it is one of my easiest recipes, only need few ingredients that always keep in our house, and the way is far easier than you think, not much time consuming compared with the classic steam pudding, you can’t believe this cake so moist and the texture just like a cheesecake, so soft and smooth! What else do you want to ask for?

Tropical Fruit: Papaya
This tropical fruit is so popular like mango or bananas in South-East Asia or Asia area, but the variety in England was a bit difference, they’re not good as the Asia papaya, they’re smaller in size, less in flavour. But mix up with other ingredients for dessert, that’s will be fine.

The nests have been used in Chinese cooking for over 400 years, most often as bird’s nest soup. Our ancestors are far too clever to find those good and full of nutritient food for their health and benefit for skin or more….lots of information from the internet.
