Braised Nam Yue Pig Trotter

Most of my regular readers must be wondering where on earth have I disappeared to for the past couple of months. The thing is, audreycooks will be shifting to a brand new kitchen, middle of this year so I am terribly occupied with designing and supervising the whole rectification and renovation works. Prayerfully, this new kitchen can handle more home-entertaining than the present one. But surely I will miss my wonderful present kitchen which holds uncountable fond memories.

Stir-fry Watercress Shoots

Here in Malaysia, it is made into the popular soup, 'Sai Yong Choy Thong' (in Cantonese). Slow-boiled with soup bones, usually chicken or pork, some dried oysters and a handful of dried red dates creates a wonderful aroma fit to satisfy a rumbling tummy on a cool stormy day. I look forward to this slow-boiled soup very often.

Roast Turkey with Port Wine Finishing Sauce and Sausage Stuffings

Received a Williams-Sonoma Port Wine Finishing Sauce from my husband from his trip sometime ago. Have been saving it for a special occasion to give it a try. Roast turkey happens to be a lovely idea at this moment and now I can't wait to share this delicious recipe with you. Have a go at it, this Christmas season, roast a turkey and be proud of it!

Mini Milky Pancakes

I have not been diligently making pancakes for breakfast, but of late, my children were craving for some, especially my daughter. Lazy breakfast mornings are a hit during school holidays, so we whipped up some lovely milky ones for a cool rainy morning. You may add dried fruits, chopped nuts, muesli or herbs into the pancakes if you like.
