I love this savory pastry very much but never have a change to make them. Two days ago, it happened that it was raining outside and prevented me from going out to check the New York City (especially Manhattan borough). I decided to stay home and bake my BBQ Pork Puffs. View more

Golden Raisins have always been my favorite fruit. I love to eat in any way…fresh or raw or cooked or pickled or dried. Recently, I went to an Indian Grocery store and got some dried golden raisins at a good price. I ate some of them and the rest I decided to cook them. So, the next day, I made this into a sweet dish.

Many of the biscotti are made up of cake flour or AP flour and hard to find in whole wheat. If you can, it is very expensive, so I decided to make my own. View more

My grand-daughter, Jade came over for a visit and we both had a great time together. She is my little helper in my kitchen, helping me to bake, grocery shopping and table-setting. She and I shared baking this dessert and she did all the mixing and putting the batter into the paper cups. This dessert turned out well. It is a very easy muffin to bake. So share with your grand-kids to make this wonderful brownie muffin. View more

Two nights ago, I made this dish for dessert and shared with family. In Southeast Asia, this is a very popular dessert/snack using over-ripe bananas. It is so easy and flavorsome. So next time when you have over-ripe bananas, do not throw them in the trash, used them for this awesome snack. Enjoy!! View more
