Mixed Berries, Gooseberries Crumble with Lemon Custard ~ Vegan & Gluten-Free

Apple crumble is my first dessert that I learned since I came to this country. It flashed back so many good and bad memory from the past.

Now is the summer time in England, the forecast said will jump up to 31°C ~ 33°C in the next few days. Global warming is causing climate patterns to change.

Slow Cook Kale & Butternut Squash Dal (羽衣甘藍 & 南瓜, 印度豆)

Slow Cook Kale & Butternut Squash Dal (羽衣甘藍 & 南瓜, 印度豆)

 

Dal or dhal is a dried pulse which has been split. The outer hull is usually stripped off; dal that has not been hulled is described as chilka (skin), e.g. chilka urad dal, mung dal chilka.

Dhal is the Indian staple made from split pulses. They’re high in fibre, full of good protein, low in calories, fat-free, quick and easy to cook, reasonable cheap, substantial, versatile and delicious. It can serve with rice or naan bread. The chana dhal, an Indian chickpea, used most often to make dhal in India. But now, most of the people use the yellow split peas, red or green lentil instead. Split peas will give a slightly creamier dhal. If you can’t find fresh curry leaves, you can use frozen one like me.

Homemade Figs & Cranberry with ‘Pu-erh’普洱茶 Mincemeat for Christmas Mince Pie

Homemade Figs & Cranberry with ‘Pu-erh’普洱茶 Mincemeat for Christmas Mince Pie

Wish you all have a wonderful and happy Christmas with your family and friends. Enjoy and have a great time together!

Mince pie is the must-to-do list for my family during every Christmas. But the shop bought mincemeat put me off. I don’t like them at all since I bought one jar from the shop to make my mince pie (I tried few of different brands already). They’re far too sweet for me.

Review My 2013

Review My 2013

Omg!  It’s hard to believe that nearly the end of 2013 already ~ only 1 day remaining!  Why is the time flying too fast and without any trace !!

I got few things that hit my heart deeply.

~ Nelson Mandela who died of 95,  (July 18, 1918 — Dec. 5, 2013).  He was South Africa’s first black president, anti-apartheid revolutionary, politician and philanthropist who changed the face of his country for ever.

In 1962 he was convicted of conspiracy to overthrow the state and was jailed for 27 years before an international campaign helped to secure his release. He received more than 250 honours, including the Nobel peace prize.

In South Africa he was known as the father of the nation and was laid to rest in his home village after his death on December 5.

~ Lady Margaret Thatcher who died of 87, (Oct. 13, 1925 —April 8, 2013)

Britain’s only female Prime Minister who will be remembered for smashing the miners, leading Britain to victory in the Falklands War… and trying to dismantle the welfare state.

She served as PM from 1979 to 1990 and was the first to win three successive General Elections.

Lady Thatcher had been battling dementia and died on April 8 at The Ritz where she had been staying since Christmas.

There still lots we’ll remember them…

Today let’s pay tribute to the famous or influential faces who went in 2013.

But in the whole year 2013, we still have some great news to remember.

~ Our Royal family has one new member:  Prince George, the first child for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge was born on July 22 and named Prince George Alexander Louis.

A Trip to Paris ~ Day 5 (Home Sweet Home)

A Trip to Paris ~ Day 5   (Home Sweet Home)

Hi all, can you believe it !  What?

It has been rain from last night or maybe early morning,  The sky was all dark grey, the rain was getting heavier and heavier… 😦

We’re not really care, because we’ll go home today!  But I felt very sorry for the tourists that they stay behind or just started.

Looked at the sky there when we’re on the journey to head back home, heavy rain!
