Meyer Lemon Bars

Lemon lemon. I just love them. I have a huge lemon tree at my backyard but the lemon is not that juicy as for my little meyer lemon plant, it’s not producing any fruits this year. Not sure why. My good friend Maria gave me some Meyer Lemons from her backyard and she told me she love lemon bars. So lemon bars it is. So I made some to share it with her and Linda. I prefer meyer lemons as they are more juicy and less tart. Hopefully my meyer plant will give me some fruits next year but if not I can always get some from Maria.

I used Ina Garter recipe but the next time I make this again I will cut down a bit of the flour for the filling as I like the filling to be softer. For the sugar I cut it down to 2 cups as meyer lemons are not that tangy so needed less sugar.

Snowskin Mooncakes

Mid-Autumn Festival is just a few days away and is time to make some mooncakes. This year I just did the snowskin kind as I don’t have time to do the bake ones. I’ve been pretty busy with some orders and also social life. Have invites to gatherings most weekends. Anyway, I made these mooncakes for a Malaysian get together a couple of weeks ago and I just used back the same recipe from my previous one.

Oven Baked Honey Sriracha Chicken Wings

Wow, I have not updated my blog for over a month. Why such a long silence? Well, laziness I guess. I still cook at least 3-4 times a week but mostly some repeat dishes and sometimes I am just too lazy to take photos but I still update it on my Instagram though. You can follow me there if you want to.
Anyway, I baked these wings some time ago. I am a huge fan of wings but I try not to eat it as often. Maybe once every 2-3 months. I have shared quite a few recipes here and this is one recipe that I have yet to post it here which uses one of my favorite chili sauce: Sriracha. I like baking it as it is less messy than frying and probably a bit healthier. These spicy, sweet and slightly charred wings are pretty addictive. I don’t think you can stop eating it with just 1 or 2 so I hope you try it out.

Ham and Corn Croquettes

I don’t make this often but sometimes I do crave for it. I prefer Croquettes made from b├ęchamel sauce rather than potatoes. I like the soft, creamy and buttery interior that oozes out of the crispy breadcrumbs when bite into it. The mixture is quite soft to handle, so it is better than you let it cool down really well in the fridge before handling it. These savory patties are good as an appetizer and you can mix anything in it into the b├ęchamel base.
