My Easy Pad Thai

I just felt like having Pad Thai today. 

Not having the Thai ingredients at home, I decided to cook my own style of Pad Thai. How about Korean glass noodles? Positive. It was easy to prepare and the noodles were soft and chewy.

Hong Kong Snack: Shark's Fin in a Bowl

Shark's Fin in a Bowl (碗仔翅) was one of my favorite afternoon or late-night snacks when I was in secondary school. To be exact, I loved to have Shark's Fin & Fish Paste in a Bowl (魚肉翅). People used glass noodles (粉絲) as the fake shark's fin, but more and more restaurants are using imitation shark's fin instead. 

The imitation shark's fin was on sale. That was why I bought it and made the soup today.

Delicious Lamb Loin Chops Ready in 10 Minutes



Hubby and I have been in San Francisco for five months already. Have been invited to several homes, and enjoyed wonderful meals with our new friends. We had several simple steak dinners, a big thanksgiving dinner, a typical western dinner, some hot pots, and a Vietnamese spring rolls dinner. One of our latest favorites is lamb, no matter how it is cooked - whether it is sliced lamb in hot pots, or lamb loin chops. 

The special taste of lamb makes seasoning super easy. Plus, I enjoy having the original taste of our food. I decided to season my lamb loin chops with only a few spices. To my surprise, the simple dish lured me into eating more and more. (Hubby said the lamb was so juicy and tender. The recipe was a success!)

Cream Mushroom Chicken Rice Casserole



I love pasta more than rice. Having tried to cook rice in ways I like, I believe I've started to love rice. Here comes my first love of the rice world.
