Steamed Ginger Milk Custard (served with Osmanthus Syrup)

Steamed Ginger Milk Custard was listed in my trial list for so long.  I have fallen in love with this dessert when I first tried a few years ago during my first visit to Macau.  This dessert is well known among the Chinese community inclusive me!  I just love the smoothness of this dessert when it melts in my mouth with little of spiciness taste from the ginger, heavenly.

As I have a practice of controlling the sugar level in my food, I have cut down half amount of sugar when I made this dessert, but then, when I thought of others who might have a different perception, I have this idea pop-up in my head - to serve with syrup like what we used to do when we eat bean curd custard (tofu fa).  I have added some ginger juice and dried Osmanthus in my syrup.   Dried Osmanthus is my regular item of making flowering tea or blooming tea, which could improve skin complexion.  

So ladies, how could you miss this wonderful easy to make dessert!

Baked Cheesy Chicken Wonton Cups

If you were given a task to prepare an appetizer for a party, potluck, picnic or gathering, what will you prepare?  There is one which I had in my mind and wish to try out for quite some time, that is baked wonton cups. 

Baked wonton cups can be easily prepared and be invented in so many designs of flavors of fillings.  It can be blended with meat, fruits, vegetables, etc., etc....  

This is my first trial, I would like to try with chicken meat mix with colorful bell peppers and add in with some spiciness when I stir-fried the fillings.  I just use some chili flakes, you may ignore them if you don't like them, as it will still taste good when those cheeses topping melted after baked.

So, if you wish to prepare something look classy and presentable yet yummy, try this out!
