Baked Barbecued Pork Puffs-Char Siu Puffs


With the leftover barbecued pork, I used it as filling for my Baked Barbecued Pork Puffs. I cut up some ready made puff pastry into rectangle pieces and sprinkled some sesame seeds on top just before baking. Besides making the puffs look prettier, the sesame seeds also ensured the puffs will have a lovely fragrance when it’s done!

  7. these look fantastic. i think my problem is that i'd probably never have any leftover barbecued pork in the house, so making it from scratch would take some work.

Raw Energy Bars~Chocolate, Cashew, And Almond

I get energized everytime I make Raw Energy Bars at home. I have tried several recipes and flavors before; but, this Chocolate, Cashew, and Almond flavor is currently my favorite! It's made from scratch using raw ingredients, such as Medjool dates, cashew, almond, cocoa, and coconut. You will be amazed with the end result. Not only are these bars good for you, they also taste great! So, if you are into raw energy bars, then you may want to try this recipe. If possible, please send me your feedback as well. Have a great weekend.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
