Stir-fried tomato and scrambled eggs 家常蕃茄炒蛋

Tomatoes are in season!!!

It’s one of my favorite ingredients to all kinds of dishes. No matter Asian dishes like beef stew, Mexican dish such as salsa, or pasta, burger, or sandwiches, I always love lots of tomatoes. I prefer cooked tomatoes over fresh tomatoes. The cooked tomatoes taste sweeter and the flavor is much more enhanced. Also, cooked tomatoes contain rich lycopene and antioxidant which is really good for health.

Super Easy Baked Italian Meatballs 偷吃步義式烤肉丸子

This is a super easy/ cheating recipe. 😛 Instead of the ground beef or pork and all kinds of seasonings, I just simply use the stuffing of Italian sausages which already have plenty of flavors or even a little salty. Adding the vegetables, an egg, and all other ingredients can not only add more layers of flavors into the meatballs, but also can mild the saltiness.  Continue reading Super Easy Baked Italian Meatballs 偷吃步義式烤肉丸子

Ma-Po Tofu (麻婆豆腐) Sichuan Peppercorn spicy sauce tofu, another rice killer

I love the scent of Sichuan peppercorn in stir fries. However, the restaurants normally use the whole peppercorns which irritate and numb your tongue when you bit one accidently. Some restaurants would strain the Sichuan peppercorns and just leave the oil after frying them, but with this way you lose lots of flavor.

Copycat Hot N Juicy Boil~ Let’s get your hands dirty!!!

Absolutely LOVE this recipe!!!! Recommendation: 100% Must Try

After our last visit to Hot N Juicy, me and J kept thinking about the savory, hot, buttery taste of those shrimps. Occasionally we found this video tutoring how to make copycat version of Hot N Juicy cajun boil and garlic butter sauce. It seems not difficult at all!!! And the best part is when making your own Hot N Juicy boil at home, you get to choose what to put include in your meal, the quality of seafood, and you can tweak the taste as much as you want~~~ (Best of all, it’s a lot cheaper LOL)

Home made Shabu Shabu and Sichuan pepper hot pot 溫暖麻辣鴛鴦鍋

One of the best thing in winter is to stay at home having hot pot Shabu Shabu with families and friends. I got this new two-sided hot pot and a portable gas stove from the Asian super market. Can’t wait to try it out at home. 🙂

In Taiwan, having a hot pot is so common and is really popular during winter time. The base soup can have many varieties. One of the most popular is the Sichuan pepper hot pot and the basic plain stock. Not only the base, you can also boil all kinds of different ingredients into the pot from meat, seafood, vegetables, mushrooms, tofu, or all kinds of fish or meat balls.

This could be the best sunday brunch sandwiches or a great but easy meal for working day dinner.

I really like the Torta bread I bought from Costco. It has a really nice and crispy crust and chewy body texture. The size of each bread is perfect. Not too big nor too small.
