Thai Pumpkin Dessert 【泰式南瓜甜汤】



I harvested the pumpkin at my front yard, it is very sweet and tasty, thus a good candidate for this Thai pumpkin dessert. I sent some to my neighbors and they loved it too!
Note: I cooked with the skin on as my pumpkin is homegrown, if you buy yours from the shop, you can remove the pumpkin skin.

Steamed Pork Belly with Yam 【芋头扣肉】



I made a few dishes that I really liked during the Chinese new year period this year, but had little time to work on the recipe and pictures. Since this month is a little more relax work wise, I finally find time to write the recipe.

Steamed pork belly with yam is a very traditional and loved dish for Chinese New Year, this version turned out good and it actually tasted better the day after!

Deep Fried Pumpkin Blossoms【酥炸南瓜花】

We went back to Malaysia for 2 months for the summer holiday thus I was not able to plant much in my backyard this summer. 

But the compost at my front yard that consists of my homegrown pumpkin peels and seeds last fall has turned into a big plant when I return from Asia. Since it has blossoms galore, I am so happy that I can still enjoy some harvest this year even though I had not planted anything this!

Vegetarian Egg Dumplings 【素食蛋饺】

I made this dumpling dish for my son's Chinese school New Year celebration, the parents and teachers loved it and was praising the taste and appearance of it a lot! Worth the effort of spending the whole morning making the dumplings !

Note: I have scaled the recipe down to 3-4 servings which is more suitable for a family, the pictures taken was for a much larger servings.
