Matcha Tofu Pudding

Finally a Friday with no pressing issue at work that “may need some of my help at weekend”… Man now I know how it feels like to work almost two weeks in a row without a break. We also just bought our first home, while my wife was recovering from her wisdom teeth removal. You can…

Fried Rice with Soy Sauce

Whenever I think of a list of fried rice, it’s always the fried rice with eggs popping up first at the top while the one with soy sauce staying at the bottom. I’ve always thought “how could something with just soy sauce be good? ”  Again, I hate my own ignorance. It’s more than just…

Strawberry Topping Pineapple and Cheese Sticks

Strange weather today, jumping from -10 C to 17 C. The warm sunshine and sudden rain drops make me feel like it’s summer already. I don’t know when is the real deal here in Toronto, but I’m gonna catch this opportunity to do a pre-celebration with this interesting recipe 菠萝芝士小甜点 I found out a couple days…

Jade Cabbage Rolls

Thank God it’s Friday! Two weeks working overtime is not fun, at all. Before I joined the new team, the estimation of the current project was all set, and sadly unrealistic…I haven’t been in the kitchen for a week, which is torturing me, especially after reading some mouth-watering posts in the reader feeds. After yesterday’s mess, I…

Pan Fried Tofu with Spicy Cabbages

When I woke up this morning, I knew I wanted to make this tofu dish, without my daily struggle of wondering what to eat. The first time I had this dish was back in my 5th grade, visiting a friend and his grandma made it for lunch. It was a hot summer and this spicy dish really…

Pan-Seared Green Chili Pepper

What do you do with only a bag of green chili peppers and several gloves of garlic in the fridge? Going out to get more food is not an option for me since I’m on pager duty and it will be frustrating to be paged when I’m happily doing grocery shopping, let alone the weird…

Purple Potato And Goji Berry Congee

So this week I spent most my time through the employee training program in the US and it happens to be my first visit to the US as well. It was not an easy trip. Our first flight was delayed. When we arrived at Charlotte NC, the connecting flight was already boarding. Unfortunately, we didn’t…

Green Tea Marble Cookies

I’ve been looking for an opportunity to try out baking for quite a while. The Luna New Year seems to be a good reason to try new stuff. So here comes my first edible version of cookies. Well it’s definitely not the first batch of cookies I made in the last couple of days. Most…

Spicy Quail Eggs in a Nest

Occasionally we buy some quail eggs, usually when we want a change from chicken eggs everyday. It was pretty rare back in the old days to. When my parents brought some home I was so delighted as if they bought me a present. I wonder how many times they used this kind of trick to…

Dragonfruit Shrimp Boat

I came across this recipe a few days ago and thought it would make a good dish for the second part of the Fiesta Friday Anniversary 🙂 Fruits are unusual choices when we make stir fries. It’s easy to over-cook it. The last one we’ve tried was the Duck Breast Stir Fry with Pineapple. Since it…

Arugula Salad

Today is the first anniversary of Fiesta Friday. It’s the first event I joined in my less-than-one-year blogging experience and it’s a great pleasure to meet all fantastic bloggers out there. Of course, many thanks to Angie for hosting such a great event! I hope I’m not too late for the party as there are…
