    Not sure what you mean by "gummy". I've never had that problem even with freshly made ones, taken to friends' home then steamed. These were straight from the freezer into the steamer.

    Appreciate your comment on my soups. 😘 The tarts taste pretty darn good chilled as well.

    I am not a fan of the sweet tang yuen, which is traditionally served to the family at the end of the 15 day festivities. The savoury variety is served on New Years eve in my family. The broth is usually made with pork. The additions are lap cheong or sliced pork, re-hydrated dried shrimp, shredded daikon (my favourite part).

    Ha Looks like we were on the same frame of mind today. Your tarts look fabulous. I just used frozen unsweetened tart shells from the Chinese grocery store. They are nice and flaky and saved me stress. Nearly burned my tongue off as I couldn't wait for that first bite.ðŸĪŠ We each had one after our dim sum lunch. The har gow, xiao long baos, and nor mai joon were also boug

    Been so lazy! Spend time checking out all the fabulous meals everyone is posting, but then too worn out to post! Have some catching up to do. Steamed Ginger Soy Pickerel Fillets Oven-baked Meatballs in Filo Cups Sous vide and pan seared Bison Steaks with Brussel sprouts and mixed grains / rice.

    It's been such a change in our weather. A cold snap has had temperatures around the -30Cs, with night time temp around -40 and windchill -50C. The sun shines but the wind freezes water pipes and knocks out power. We are lucky, staying at home, have power, and monitoring everything. Soup is something that keeps us warm from the inside out. Loaded congee with bones from crispy BBQ pork (siu yook), pork slices, fuyu, pork floss, Chinese crueller, and crackling. Rice vermicelli with leftov

    Dinner 2021

    Cumin seasoned strips of beef tenderloin, stir-fried with bell peppers and onion chunks. Lightened-up sesame chicken. The strips were just marinated with sesame oil then dusted with cornstarch and pan-fried. My old recipe had chicken strips mixed with flour, cornstarch, egg, then coated with bread crumbs before deep frying. They were SO much better! Used the same simple sauce I used in the restaurant: water, vinegar, 5-spice powder, sesame oil , and red pepper flakes.

    A couple of lunches as I am still nursing my sore jaw. Moroccan Spiced Butternut Squash Soup. Have some left over and found it works great as a dip for al dente steamed vegetables (cauliflower and broccoli) Boston Clam Chowder: would love oyster crackers with the chowder but available only via amazon.ca, and it's $33.70 for 9 ounces! Saltines it is!

    @Kim Shook: re-turkey drumsticks: I just did what the instructions said on the package: roast @375F until internal temp reaches 170. But I pulled them @160 and let rest 10 minutes. I had some stuffing under the drumsticks. They were very good and I am glad I picked some packages up and tucked into the freezer. Gave 2 packs to my son as his 6 and 8 year old love "dinosaur legs"! I love that chana masala. I need to make some roti jala - memories of our first breakfast after landing in Malaysia!

    Dinner 2021

    Picked up several more packages of seasoned turkey drumsticks with price reduced stickers. Guess nobody want them after Xmas and NY. Hubby ate a whole one while I cut a couple of pieces of mine. Eaten with sweet potato and peas. Pretty cheap meal!

    Oh sorry...WW = Weight Watchers. I have only used one setting for my Ninja Foodie TenderCrisp - 390F That's a good idea to brown the Panko crumbs. I'll have to make a note on the recipe!

    Lunch 2021

    Hurt my jaw last night, and it's swollen. So it's soft food for lunch. I had picked up Cantonese BBQ ducks and Siu Yook (crispy skin BBQ pork) from the Chinese grocery. because I am a regular, the owner gave me several BBQ Pork bones for soup. Those are SO full of flavour and still a lot of meat attached. I used 2 smaller pieces to make jook / congee for lunch today. It was really flavourful! Eaten with preserved egg, Chinese crueller, and few slivers of crackling.

    Ninja Foodie air-fryer fish'n'chips with pickerel. It's a WW recipe - batter made with beer and egg white then coated with Panko crumbs. Had the usual Glico Curry gravy and spicy ketsup.

    Enjoyed Yaki Udon at a hotel restaurant while in the city. The last time we were in, they had taken it off their menu and replaced it with a quinoa salad. So I did a riff on it when I had a request from hubby. Ramped it up with shrimp and Chinese sausage. I sure showed them! 😆

    Wanted MaPo Tofu, but I like to add eggplant to mine ( 2 dishes in one!). But I didn't have eggplant so I went with oyster sauce instead with some lean ground beef. Instant Pot came into use last night, with Thai Coconut Curry Chicken. Took a meal over to the bachelor neighbor with the bobcat with snow removal blade! Good insurance if we have major snow falls!

    These are the noodles that I use. Shrimp roe / eggs are incorporated in the noodles. These I use when the soup is made with just water and not stock. But with the rich pork broth I had, it was doubly delicious.

    THIS is all I have in my "book". The portions, taste for tang and heat are up to you to adjust. Google and see what comes up. The green containers are 16 oz. food containers that we used in the restaurant. MSG is optional. We stopped using it when customers request no MSG. No sugar is added as per other recipes, but there is some sweetness from the BBQ pork (char siu) I don't use pepper, but the chili paste gave our soup a "signature". It's a well-kept secret! 😄, so sssshhhhh...

    Great idea! Our fireplace needs work before we can use it. Meanwhile, I bought 2 bags of marshmallows intending to make a new marshmallow treat! And thanks for the sympathy on hubby's never-ending saga.

    Hot'n'Sour soup makes a regular appearance for lunch even when there isn't any cold viruses around. Wish it would take care of Covid, but alas, no such magic. Didn't get to make the Winter Solstice daikon & dumpling soup. Finally found some lovely daikon and made the Savoury Turnip Cake like my Mom used to make. She had chopped Chinese bacon, mushrooms, dried shrimp, and salted turnip. Steamed for an hour then chilled in the fridge. I had to be patient and waited until today to fr

  24. At Xmas 2019, I made four Beef Wellingtons for family dinner at our daughters. She has a double oven so it worked perfectly. As before, we made it without any bacon, prosciutto . Just made sure the duxelle was not watery. No such gathering this year due to Covid-19 Level Red in Manitoba, so it was Wellington for two. Due to various health issues - extreme
