Char Siew Pau

It's been a long time since I last update my blog and it's looking more like a foodie blog now :) I bought a bamboo steamer not long ago, and thought I should make myself some char siew pau (one of my must order dish when i go for dim sum). I made some char siew yesterday using aunty lily's recipe,, and made the pau today,

the final results. i am quite satisfied since this is the first time i made pau. The fillings is quite dry, I will remember to make more gravy next time.

the pau before steaming. To know how to pleat the pau, watch those videos on youtube, loads of them :)

steam the pau for 10 min

ta-daa... looks a bit ugly, got to improve my pau pleating skill :)

I tried a very simple dish tonight, tomato eggs, which turns out very nice and sweet! See the recipe here.

Blueberry muffins!

I have my own Saturday kitchen this weekend, trying out James Martin's blueberry muffins, see the recipe here. I bought more blueberries than the recipe asked for and thought it does not matter . However I found out that too much is not necessary a good thing :) Its a bit runny and blueberries everywhere!
