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.

Black Bean Soymilk 黑豆漿

I always have the impression of making own soymilk is so troublesome. The traditional ways to make it needs overnight soaks, grind the beans, filter the milk and then carefully boil it but not to burn it. So many steps….

After I got the Vitamix, lots of friends told me they use it to blend soymilk and it turns out really simple and tastes great. The best part is, you can blend the serving for the day each time. Since the natural soymilk spoils really fast, the traditional method which makes a big pod of soymilk bothers small family size like mine. With this method, I can just freeze the beans and took out whatever portion you are planning on making. Very convenient and simple

Super easy braised chicken thigh 超簡單滷雞腿

I recently got a great deal on whole chicken legs. This is such an easy but savory traditional Chinese cuisine that pretty much all Chinese families cook very often. All you need to do is put all ingredients in one big pot and let it simmer for about 1 to 1.5 hours or until the meat is tender. The sauce is great with rice or noodles. Try it and you will love it!!

Spicy Guacamole Dip Recipe 墨西哥酪梨醬

Guacamole is one of my favorite American-Mex appetizer. It’s so easy to make, but taste so good. I normally make salsa and guac the same time since it contains very similar ingredients. Chopping double the ingredients saves time and can have two different dip at the same time. Awesome!!

To make a good guac, you don’t need skills at all. Just mix all chopped ingredients together and adjust the taste to your preference. The guacamole could go with chip, wraps, or into sandwiches. Sometimes, I even just use a spoon and eat it all directly. Love the creamy and spicy texture and taste. 🙂  Continue reading Spicy Guacamole Dip Recipe 墨西哥酪梨醬

Three Ingredients Banana Pancake (Do Not Recommend…)

This recipe has been popular for a while and I haven’t really got the gut to try it out since I’m not really a big banana person.

The truth is…. for people who are not absolutely LOVE bananas, don’t even bother to try. 🙂 It does taste ABSOLUTELY like banana. In regards to the texture, I would say it’s more like a “tamagoyaki (Japanese sweet omelette)” than a pancake.

 (Tamagoyaki)

Even Though, in other recipes or videos recommend to add a little baking powder to make the texture more like pancakes, it was still not like pancake at all to me.  Continue reading Three Ingredients Banana Pancake (Do Not Recommend…)

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
