Sweet Pumpkin White Fungus Soup 南瓜銀耳羹



Here it comes another pumpkin dish made with the pumpkin planted by Auntie Lisa.

It is again very dry and cold these days. I will made this white fungus soup, it helps me fight cold and dryness.

Note: White fungus or snow fungus is a slight yellowish dried fungus, after soaking and cooking it will become white and almost translucent in color.

White fungus is believed to be a good immune stimulant, it fights infection, inflammation, cold and cough, studies have also found that it has anti-tumor property, could lower levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL, or the "bad"cholesterol). It is also believed to slow the aging process, though I am not sure if there is any scientific research supporting this!

天气开始变得干燥的时候会炖一锅银耳羹做早饭,刚好冰箱里还有阿姨送的南瓜,这次就炖了个南瓜银耳羹,排毒养颜润肺,还很饱肚喔!

Lotus Seeds Snow Fungus and lily bulbs Soup 百合莲子银耳羹




Fall and winter are both very dry seasons.I for one always suffer dry and itchiness during these seasons. Lotions or oil won't help much. This sweet soup is supposed to help prevent dryness during cold weather. It is a pretty good breakfast too!


每每一到秋冬我就觉得皮肤容易干燥痕痒,用很多润肤霜喝许多水都没用。炖一锅百合莲子银耳羹来调理一下,据说能养颜润肤哦!

Watercress soup 老火西洋菜汤



I learnt to enjoy Cantonese soups from my cantonese flatmate when I was in England. I also think a good pot of soup can only be made using claypot.

I have been wanting a good claypot for a long time now and did not see anything of my liking, until one afternoon when I visited Chinatown in PA, I saw this simple claypot sitting right on top of a shelve. and I knew that it is mine.

我很喜欢老火汤,但家里没有一个适合炖汤的锅,就一直很想找个适中而且质量较好的瓦煲。新泽西的几个华人超市我都找过了,都是看起来很漂亮设计很精美却让我没有什么信心的瓦煲。

上星期刚好到费城附近上班,去了中国城吃烧鸭,吃饱后顺道逛逛唐人街,就给我看到这个瓦煲了,价钱还不贵,马上就淘回来了。


晚上向在加州出差的老公说起。他就说:“是呀,我看你也找了很久了嘛!”原来傻大个也有细心的时候,有在留心我的需要喔。

Kashmiri Pulao 克什米尔香饭




Unlike most Pulaos in India, Kashmiri Pulao is known to be mild, aromatic and slightly to the sweet side. Garnishing with fresh fruits like pomegranate and some dry fruits makes it look so colorful and appetizing.

克什米尔菜在印度是比较特别的一个菜系,口味更接近中东菜。这个米饭比较味道温和,很香甜爽口,不用任何的配菜就很好吃了哦!

Accordion Potato 风琴土豆



I made these grilled potatoes to go with our XinJiang Style Lamb Chops today. This spiced potato chips are so good that we fought for the last bite!

For those who doesn't like your potato too spicy, you can try the non-spicy grilled potato chips that I made earlier.

感恩节烤羊排的配菜我做了一盘的烤蔬菜和这款风琴土豆,撒上自制的烧烤撒粉,土豆和孜然香料出奇的配,结果都还吃不够呢!

不嗜辣的朋友可以试试我之前做过的做法类似的烤薯片


XinJiang Style Lamb Chops 孜然烤羊排



It is Thanksgiving today, we decided to have a quiet celebration this year, just the three of us.  I decided to make hubby's favourite lamb chops instead of Turkey as there is no way we could have finished the whole turkey, no matter how we try. 

I have made this lamb chops many times with my Homemade BBQ seasoning powder, it always turned out very juicy and delicious. 

今年感恩节我们决定在家过,就我们一家三口静静地感恩一切,感恩所有帮助过我们的人,感恩让我们成长的事。

两个半的人口是吃不了十几磅的大火鸡了,冰箱里刚好有一排Costco的羊肋排,就做了俊爹很爱吃的这款新疆孜然烤羊排。烤羊排的撒粉是我前阵子调配的烧烤撒粉,在我们家它可是百用调味料哦!

Pad Thai (Thai Fried Flat Rice noodle) 泰式炒河粉



Pad Thai is a very common street food in Thailand, especially in Bangkok, those hawkers who made this dish day in and day out do it with such a perfection, they managed to stir in right amount of char to the rather common ingredients of all Thai foods and make it taste so unique and unforgettable!

I have tried Pad Thai in many restaurants here in the states and in Europe, I wouldn't hide my disappointment, as it is often too oily and way too sweet! I stopped ordering from a restaurant, when I crave for it, I just make it at home, since I almost always have the ingredients needed at home.

Pad Thai在泰国是大街小巷都可以找到的炒粉,它几乎就是泰国人口味的缩影,酸甜辣鲜。来了美国我尝试过好几家泰国餐厅,不得不说的是,都让我非常地失望。

尤其是这个Pad Thai,来到了美国变成又甜又腻的炒粉。在泰国,它不是这样的,泰国街边的Pad Thai,干爽,香辣,火候足,颜色没有那么红艳。今天,让我们在家试试泰国街边摊的Pad Thai吧!

Mustard Green Rice/Dua Cai Peng 芥菜饭





My mum used to make this Giam P'ng (Hokkien Salted Rice) back home, there are similar dishes made with pumpkin, Long bean and yam.

It is prepared almost like the Spanish Paella, the rice is cooked together with ingredients and seasoning in a pot/wok and later simmer to perfection. It is simply irresistible, every spoon of it is a charm!

I have planted some Chinese mustard green end of summer, harvested handful of times, with the last two batch, I made this rice casserole to remind me of the taste of home. 


咸饭是我在家乡时妈妈常做的一个饭食,妈妈常做的有菜豆饭,芥菜饭,芋头饭和南瓜饭等等。

就是把蔬菜类的食材加上香菇,虾米,葱蒜和五花肉焖好,再炖一锅汤,就能美美地喂饱一家子。很方便,又美味喔!

夏末的时候我在后院撒了一把芥菜籽,后来张出一大片的小芥菜,我收了好几茬送朋友,最后两茬我自己做了芥菜饭和芥菜粥。好吃又营养,很适合秋末养生。
