Asian Pear & Lotus Root Juice 藕梨汁



Winter months, for many people is the months of chronic feeling of dry throat and dry nose.

If you’re someone who’s battling itchy throat and bleeding nose, here is one simple solution that requires little effort, the best part of it is, it tastes really good!

深秋、冬季气候干燥,每天在开着暖气的屋里生活很容易上火,造成喉咙鼻腔干燥发疼。

秋冬季节是吃藕和梨的好季节,鲜榨的藕梨汁清火润肺,是冬天最好的降火、润肺饮品。

Millet Steamed Cake 小米糕



I like making Millet porridge once in a while for breakfast, I like the unique nutty flavor that it has and its high nutrient value is definitely a plus. One good choice for healthy plant base diet.

Making it into steamed cake is another way to enjoy this delicious healthy grain.

冬天我喜欢熬点南瓜小米粥喝,很喜欢小米特殊的香气,它还是个营养价值很高的粗粮。
小米拿来做糕点也非常好,今天的这款小米糕好吃还不上火,真是早餐的另一个好选择。

Mashed Potato with minced meat gravy 肉末土豆泥



My son A is not a big fan of potato unless it is cooked in a certain way. This mashed potato with minced meat and gravy is one of them. 

I normally served it with some steamed vegetables, which makes it a complete meal for a little boy. 

俊宝不爱吃马铃薯,只有几个有限的马铃薯菜他愿意吃。这款肉末土豆泥是其中一款。

每次做这个菜,我会给他蒸上几块西兰花和胡萝卜一起吃。这样就各种营养都有了,是个不错的儿童餐哦!

唯一不足的地方是俊爹这个土豆控每次都会和儿子抢着吃这道菜。

Stuffed Red Dates with Sticky Rice Balls 心太软



I made Gold Fish Tang Yuan for winter solstice and have some left over glutinous rice dough that I freeze up. Since "Storm Cyclone" is in town and the temperature plummet to a single digit. 

It is time to thaw my glutinous rice dough and make yummy snacks with red dates and stay warm!

冬至时做金鱼汤圆剩的粉团我给冻上了。

这两天“炸弹气旋” (Storm Cyclone)肆虐美东地区,气温达到创纪录的零下二十度,天寒地冻的周末最适合做的事情就是在家做甜糯的甜点吃啦!

Enoki Mushrooms & Sliced Beef Soup 肥牛金针菇



We don't normally eat beef, let alone cooking at home. I wanted to buy some sliced mutton last week for hotpot, but brought sliced beef back instead. Since I also bought a few packets of Enoki mushrooms, I made this spicy soup for lunch, a perfect dish in bitter cold weather.

上周去超市买菜的时候我想着天气那么冷,买两盒羊肉片做火锅吃吃。到家才发现我带回的肉片里有一盒是牛肉片。

刚好超市里的金针菇买一送一,我也买了好几包。那就做我很喜欢的酸汤肥牛金针菇吃吧!大冬天的吃完全身暖暖的, 很舒服。

Salt-Free Chinese Pickled Cabbage 东北酸菜



The North East is the granary of China, it has very fertile lands and very distinguish seasons. Winter is harsh in North East, with harsh weather comes very little fresh vegetables.

Fortunately, fall in North east abounds in Chinese cabbage, one vegetables that is known for its storability. Another way to preserve the abundance Chinese cabbage is to pickle the vegetable. 

The pickled cabbage has a long shelf life and a distinctive sour flavor, which makes it a very unique ingredients in many delicious dishes mainly made in Winter.

我想渍酸菜想了好些时日,刚好超市里的大白菜又好又大,还打折。选了一颗最大的回来渍酸菜.

渍酸菜的方法有好几种,我选择了这款最简单、最传统的无盐法,这种方法做出的酸菜色泽很好,香气扑鼻。

Fish and Chinese Chive Dumplings 鲅鱼饺子



I grow up eating Tang Yuan (Glutinous rice balls) to celebrate winter solstice. And I came to know that the Northern Chinese eats dumplings/Jiaozi in the winter solstice.


Since I am craving for some dumplings and it is winter soltice yesterday, I made this fish and Chinese chive filling jiaozi for lunch and Gold fish glutinous rice balls in gingery syrup for dessert.


That makes 2017 winter solstice celebration a "Fishy fish theme"


我是南方人所以自小冬至是要吃汤圆的,出国后才知道原来冬至也有人吃饺子。


冬至这天我不忙,刚好馋鲅鱼饺子很久了。早上做完金鱼汤圆后就开始包鲅鱼饺子,刚好俊爹今天上班半天,午饭就吃了鲅鱼饺子,甜点是金鱼汤圆。


2017年的冬至庆祝妥妥地就是全鱼宴呀!
