Creamy Potato Salad with Peas

It's December the 19th today and indicated my stay for past 365 days at this new place.   New environment, new journey of life and indeed the year of 2012 is a challenging year for me that blended with sweet and sad memories.

December is suppose to be a festive celebration month, whereby everyone is preparing to relax down from their busy schedule to welcome the Christmas and the New Year but it was hit by a sudden sad heartbreaking incident happened in USA last week that has grab the  global attentions.   Nevertheless, I hope everyone will be able to put let down the sadness and move forward to welcome the new year.

As for me, I am rather busy with my new house renovations, which we are planning to move in by mid of January.  That's the reason you don't see my post as often as usual.  My apologies.  Hope I can get back on track after we have settle down at our new house, kind  of looking forward to move in to our new home.

Today, I am bringing a rather simple recipe, perfect for those who are always rush of time to prepare their meal (like me).  The Creamy Potato Salad with Peas will be fit for those who wish to have "meatless" meal.  I personally like the combination of the cooked potatoes with peas and what about you?  Hope you will like it like me!

I wish to take this opportunity to wish everyone Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Fried Crispy Stuffed Egg Roll

This Sunday is the second weekend of the last month of the year.   2012 indeed was another challenging year for me with a new journey of life at a new place, new working environment, making new friends and of course the most excited thing was venturing into blogging world by initiate this food blog.  Thanks to my hubby who has given me more than hundred percent confidence that I can make it.  Tomorrow happens is his birthday and we planned to have quiet celebration at home and of course will plan to cook a feast for him!

Today, I wish to bring you with simple dish which you can treat it as a type of snack- Fried Crispy Stuffed Egg Roll.  I knew in American Chinese cuisine egg roll is a savory dish that served as an appetizer, usually stuffed with chicken, pork or shrimp with various type of vegetables and wrapped with ready made wrapper which we called as spring roll wrapper.  My egg roll will be different.  I made my own wrapper using eggs or I will called it as egg crepe.  I used ground pork meat to stuff inside egg roll and I only mixed some chopped scallions and other seasoning ingredients.  You may use fish paste or beef to substitute.  After I have rolled them, I cut them into bite sizes and deep fried them.

Is pretty simple and tasty especially its dipped with some chili sauce or other dips that you prefer and I personally like it to go with a piece of lettuce or salad greens by wrapping around it.  It will be also a perfect choice to serve at a small home party.  Hope you will like it!  Happy cooking!
