My first Chinese homecooked meal

I’m an absolute noob when it comes to Chinese cuisine and I’m always afraid of cooking because I’ve never really tried it before.

Today, I took the first step. Today, I cooked some Chinese food.

Since it’s just the 2 of us, I usually use the electric lunch box to cook our rice. Then I remembered seeing quite a number of dishes you can cook with it in YouTube so I did a quick search!

I decided on steamed tofu with minced pork 😀


For the minced meat!

1 tbsp oyster sauce (I’m using vegetarian because the husband is going vegetarian for CNY soon)
1/2 tsp sugar
A few drops of sesame oil.


Mix everything together!

Place it on top of tofu.
Steam it until the light goes off.

My rice is on the bottom tier heh


Tadaaaaa!


Cooked long beans with carrot and corn.

I thought it might end up quite badly because I put a tad too much water, turns out okay!

Our simple meal today!

Sent this photo to my mum and it got her approval!

“Looks nice”

“枣米饭?

“Good”

The husband says it’s okay too so I’m happy! 😊

Recipe: Honey Cornflakes Cup

Honey Cornflakes Cup

With CNY just around the corner, my mom has been experimenting with different snacks recipes with our air-fryer. Air-fryer is amazing seriously, it can do a lot of things!

So A and I decided to experiment too, and since he was craving for some honey cornflakes cup, that would be it!

It’s very simple. Only 3 ingredients needed!

Tada! This recipe serves about 70+ mini cups. It’s really simple and fast! We gobbled up the first batch rather quickly so we made another serving.

Method:

1. Melt butter and honey over small heat until mixture turned into liquid.
2. Crush the cornflakes into smaller pieces.
3. Add the honey butter mixture into the bowl of cornflakes and stir to ensure cornflakes is coated with the mixture evenly.
4. Spoon the cornflakes into mini baking cups. Add some rainbow sprinkles if you want to!
5. Bake at 150 degrees celcius for 15 minutes, especially if you like your cornflakes to be golden brown and crispy.
6. Wait for the cornflakes to cool before packing ’em.

My parents loved them, A is now a happy boy and I just bought more cornflakes to make 😀 I heard how expensive some places are selling them, like $14 per container.. like whut?! This is definitely wayyyy cheaper to make them at home and it is not time-consuming!


Just reposting an old entry here for my own record!

I got all the ingredients ready but with moving and spring cleaning, I still haven’t got the time to do this T.T
