Hainanese Chicken Rice »

Hainanese Chicken Rice

This rice and chicken dish is very savory. It is similar to boiled chicken, well, it is actually boiled chicken but with accompanying rice cooked with the chicken stock from boiling the chicken. It is more delicious than it looks; I added some turmeric powder to give the rice a touch of color; it may [...]

Kung Pao Chicken »

Kung Pao Chicken

Another classic Chinese dish that I wanted to try for the longest time. I don’t know what kept me from trying this sooner-it was so simple to make, really. Just like the General Tso’s chicken this is the first time that I’ve tried this dish, I don’t remember ever seeing this on the menu of [...]

Chinese-Style Spareribs

I found this recipe from my old Turbo Broiler’s instruction manual and cookbook. I didn’t know that I still have this and was surprised to find it while cleaning out one of my cabinets. It’s about time I give at least one of the recipes a try and this spareribs appealed to me. It was [...]

General Tso’s Chicken

This is a very popular Chinese dish but I have never tasted it until I tried to cook it at home.   I have eaten in many Chinese restos here but I have never seen this on any menus or maybe I just didn’t browse long enough to find it. Anyways, it is delicious as [...]

Lemon Chicken

Sweet, tangy delicious lemon chicken that finally, FINALLY my family likes. I haven’t cooked lemon chicken for a long time because well, my family doesn’t like the lemon sauce -it’s too sour they say. But it was a different recipe that I was using before so I thought I’d give it a try again using [...]

Yang Chow Fried Rice »

Yang Chow Fried Rice

Yang Chow fried rice is practically a meal by itself – it has some meat, veggies and carbs but it’s more satisfying to eat with delectable dishes that one normally orders along with it in a Chinese restaurant. I don’t really make this often at home, it’s too much work compared to my favorite garlic [...]

I’m not Chinese and don’t normally celebrate Lunar New Year but this year, I kind of did..I prepared our house for good luck by making sure it’s very [...]

Taho (Silken Tofu with caramel syrup and tapioca Balls)

I love taho since I was a kid; I love watching the taho vendor precisely scoop silky bean curd into plastic transparent cups (he does it with 2-3 cups at a time) and watched how beautifully and deliciously the golden dark caramel syrup covered the white velvety tofu…oh, yum! (How I wish I can capture [...]
