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 Eggnog ~ Cheers

Vegan Eggnog ~ Cheers

What is Eggnog? It is historically also known as milk punch or egg milk punch,  is a rich, chilled, sweetened, creamy dairy-based drink traditionally made with dairy milk, cream, sugar, whipped eggs (which gives it a frothy texture, and its name) and in some version add alcohol such as brandy, rum or bourbon.

I had been back for a month since my long holiday around China and HK.

The only one that I missed when I traveling was my little cosy kitchen and all my healthy and yumminess food. :p

I always dream of transform all the recipes with dairy or egg into vegan versions. Some of them are work, but still, have lots to do more research and experiment.

Annual Chinese Mid-Autumn festival will be tomorrow. And I still haven’t got anything to post. Apart from too busy , I have gone through a few failure. Try to work out a vegan mooncake that can please me.

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.

Steamed Golden Custard Cake ~ CNY, 富貴黃金糕 

Happy Chinese New year to everyone! It is the year of the Monkey on 8th Feb 2016! Wish everyone full of energy, happiness, and good health.

More people celebrate from the 23rd of the twelfth lunar month (January 31, 2016). They start to clean, thorough their houses to welcome a new year from then. And the other thing is people buy New Year food and snacks, New Year decorations, and clothes for the New Year before New Year’s Eve. Chinese New Year, like Christmas for Chinese.

I haven’t made this tart for a long time since!

Why? Cause they’re too unhealthy and too fatty, high in calories, high in cholesterol, high in sugar.

But if those are not bothering you, you got to have a try. They’re so delicious when they came out from the oven, I recommended it to you entirely.

Hi everyone, Happy Mid-Autumn Festivel!

And tonight will be a full-moon night, wish it will be a nice and clear sky, so we can enjoy our mooncake with our family and friends together.

I remembered that when I was little, me and my brother and sister will play the paper-made lantern ( I liked my rabbit and star-fruit lanterns ) and went around our neighbours with our friends together, and our family would have a big feast to celebrate that night, lots of yummy food and seasonal fruits, like star-fruits, sharon fruits or persimmons, pomelo, pear, grapes, etc…

Crispy Custard Mooncake II (2013)

What is the difference between this custard mooncake with the one that I made from last year? I just can’t tell  you , it is quite personal like.

 The one that I made before was less cholesterol because it hasn’t got any salty egg yolks. If you don’t like it, skip the egg yolk, it will be fine.  Anyway, I made some without egg yolk, those are for me because I need to watch out my cholesterol. But I did try one of them, the custard filling was nice and has the salty egg yolk fragrant. So for my opinion, try your best to buy the salty duck egg if you haven’t tasted it before. It is quite interesting, the salty duck egg has more flavour than the normal one. I heard some chefs prefer to use the duck eggs to make their own noodles, they emphasised that the noodles will be more tender, but it is true, lots of people did try it before and put their thumbs up as well.
