This is one of the most common Chinese breakfasts in China, literally every Chinese have tried it and almost every one loves it. It usually pairs with soy milk.

I had tried to make it a few times before, but never once it came out as good as I remembered, but today I made a really good one, so I would like to share it with you.

Egg 1

Salt 8 g

Baking soda 4 g

Baking powder 4 g

Vegetable oil 15 g

Water 275 g

Mix everything together in a big bowl, and mix well, it will be very sticky at first, but keep mixing them for about 2 minutes until smooth, brush some oil on the top and seal the bowl with plastic wrap.

Keep it in the refrigerator over night.

Take it out the refrigerator the next morning and leave it in the room temperature for  30 minutes.

Take the dough out of the bowl and knead it with a rolling pin into a long rectangle, cut the rectangle into some strips, get one strip on top of the other, get a chopstick and press down in the middle.

Heat up some oil in a frying pan, pick up one pair of strips and stretch it a little so it will be a little longer and use some strength on the fingers used to pick up the strips so the ends will stick together.

Deep fried the dough in the oil and make sure you use something ( we use chopsticks) to turn the dough, it will turn into golden brown real quick. When it is golden brown on every side, it is ready.

Overnight Oatmeal/過夜泡燕麥片

WeChat Image_20200101200015

I am in love with overnight oatmeal recently, not only it tastes much better than cooked oatmeal, but also it is easier to prepare. I also love the texture of it too. You can add any kind of your favorite fruits or nuts or seeds to it. I even add ricotta cheese to it. So healthy and yummy! It is a new year, maybe you can do something good to your own health!

Old fashion quaker oats oatmeal 1/2 cup

Milk/soy milk/almond milk 1 cups

Honey (optional)

Add your favorite drink: Milk/soy milk/almond milk to the oatmeal in a container with a lid on then leave it in the refrigerator overnight.

The next day, you can garnish it with fruits, nuts, chia seeds or anything that you would like to eat it with. Be creative, you will find it is a lot of fun to decorate it! Let me show you some of mine from my recent breakfasts:

Try to use old fashion oats, and I recommend quaker oats, don’t use instant or quick 1 minute oat, they will turn out mushy so they won’t taste good.


我最近很喜歡過夜泡燕麥片,不僅味道比煮熟的燕麥片好很多,而且更容易準備。還有我也喜歡它的口感。你可以添加任何你自己喜歡的水果或堅果或奇亞子。我甚至加了裡科塔乳酪。 真的是又健康又美味!今天是新的一年的開始,也許你可以做一些對自己健康有益的事情!

牛奶/豆漿/杏仁奶 1 杯

Beef Congee/滑牛粥


This is another congee dish, I am very much in love with congee recently. The cooking is very similar to the previous post pork congee, but this time I used beef instead.

So add 10 times as much water to cook the short grain rice that was already frozen over night. Wait till the rice is ready, add Shredded ginger cook for 2 minutes, then add the marinated thin sliced beef to it continue to cook for 3-4 minutes.

Crack 2 eggs in a bowl and mix well, then pour the egg over the congee, turn the heat off right away.

Add some shredded lettuces on the bottom of a bowl, then add some hot congee to the bowl, garnish it with some scallion.








How To Cook Eggs/怎么煮鸡蛋

I have been thinking about this post for a while but never got it done. I promised someone I would do it soon, so here it is. Hopefully this will be helpful for you.

Fried egg


It is better to use a nonstick pan when making fried egg. Medium low heat, add a few drops of oil in the cooking pan. Even though it is fried, really with the nonstick pan, you almost need no oil at all.

  1. Crack the egg directly into the pan and season with salt and black pepper.
  2. Continue cooking the egg over medium low heat for about two to three minutes, or until the white is set but the yolk is still quite runny.


煎蛋时最好用不粘锅。中低火, 在锅里加入几滴油。尽管它是煎的但是用不粘锅的话你几乎不需要油。

  1. 将鸡蛋直接敲开放入锅中, 加盐和黑胡椒粉调味。
  2. 继续用中小火煎鸡蛋约两到三分钟, 或直到蛋白固化, 但蛋黄仍然是液状。


Over-easy egg



  1. Crack the egg directly into the pan and season with salt and black pepper.
  2. Continue cooking the egg over medium low heat for 2 minutes, or until the white is set but the yolk is still quite runny.
  3. Use a plastic spatula lift the egg gently and flip
  4. Cook the other side for 1 minute with low heat.


  1. 将鸡蛋直接敲开放入锅中, 加盐和黑胡椒粉调味。
  2. 继续用中小火煎鸡蛋约两分钟, 或直到蛋白固化, 但蛋黄仍然是液状。
  3. 使用塑料铲子轻轻提起鸡蛋并翻转一面煎
  4. 另一面小火煎1分钟。


Scrambled egg



  1. Crack 2 eggs into a bowl and season with salt and black pepper.
  2. Meanwhile, melt butter in a small non-stick pan over high heat.
  3. When the butter melts and begins to foam, pour in the eggs and immediately turn the heat to medium low. Stir with a spoon or spatula constantly as you cook.
  4. When the eggs are just set but still look too moist, remove them to a plate as they will continue to cook even though they are already in the plate.



  1. 将2个鸡蛋打入碗内, 加盐和黑胡椒粉调味。
  2. 同时在不粘平底锅里加黄油高温融化。
  3. 当黄油融化并开始起泡时倒入鸡蛋, 并立即将火关成中小火。用勺子或铲子不停的搅拌。
  4. 当鸡蛋刚刚凝固但看起来仍然很湿时, 把它们倒到盘子里, 因为余温他们还会继续凝固即使他们已经在盘子里了。


Boiled egg

5 minutes/5分钟



6 minutes/6分钟



7 minutes/7分钟



  1. Bring a pot of water to boil (water should be enough to fully cover the eggs)
  2. Add eggs to the boiling water, from this point set time for 6 minutes.
  3. Take the egg out of boiling water and leave them in cold water.
  4. Adjust time accordingly to how runny you want your egg yolk to be.


  1. 把一锅水烧开 (水应该足够把鸡蛋完全淹没)
  2. 将鸡蛋放入沸水中, 从这个时候开始设定时间煮6分钟。
  3. 把鸡蛋从开水里拿出来, 放在冷水里。
  4. 根据你希望蛋黄的软硬情况调整时间。


Steamed egg



Sweet one/甜的


The best ratio of water or broth to egg for steam egg will be (1.5-2) : 1. If you like your egg to taste like firm tofu then 1.5:1. If you like it to taste like soft tofu then 2:1 will be perfect.

  1. Heat up the water or broth until it is pretty warm but you can still use your fingers to test it and do not feel hot.
  2. whip the egg with a fork, add pinch of white pepper to the egg.
  3. Gradually add warm water to the egg while still whipping.
  4. Use a strainer to strain the egg and water mixture.
  5. Bring some water to boil in a large cooking pan (or wok), steam the egg in a bowl over the water in medium low heat for about 8 minutes for 2 eggs.
  6. Add some light soy sauce to the egg and serve right away.

You can make savory steam egg like this by adding either water or broth. Or you can have milk instead of water or brother, add maple syrup or honey at the end instead of soy sauce (no white pepper of course) for sweet one.


蒸鸡蛋的水或肉汤与鸡蛋的最佳比例为 (1.5-2): 1. 如果你喜欢你的鸡蛋吃起来像老豆腐, 那么比例是1.5:1。如果你喜欢它像嫩豆腐, 那么2:1 是完美的比例。

  1. 把水或肉汤加热到有点烫手但你仍然可以用手指测试不觉得烫。
  2. 用叉子抽打鸡蛋, 在鸡蛋里加入少量白胡椒粉。
  3. 在抽打时, 慢慢向鸡蛋中加入温水。
  4. 使用密的漏勺对鸡蛋和水的混合物过滤一下。
  5. 将一些水放入一个大的平底锅中煮沸, 将2个鸡蛋以中小火的温度蒸约 8分钟。
  6. 在蒸好的鸡蛋里加入一些生抽, 马上上桌。

你可以加入水或肉汤来制作这样美味的咸蒸蛋。或者你可以用牛奶代替肉汤。添加枫糖浆或蜂蜜, 而不是酱油 (当然没有白胡椒) 做甜的蒸蛋。

Porched egg



  1. Bring a lot of water to bubbling in a saucepan (when you see a lot of little bubbles coming from the edge of the pan)
  2. Crack the eggs into the water, turn the heat to low. DO NOT stir the water for at least 1 minute, so the egg white will form the perfect shape.
  3. Use a plastic spatula or a wooden spoon touch the egg gently to see if it sticks to the bottom.
  4. Continue to simmer the eggs for 2 minutes.

Tips: Don’t add anything else to water and don’t stir the water to create whirlpool. It works for me every single time for porched egg and the shape will be perfectly oval shape.


  1. 大量的水在平底锅里煮到起泡 (当你看到很多小泡从平底锅边缘冒出来)
  2. 把鸡蛋打开小心放入水里, 把火调低。至少 1分钟不要搅拌它,那么蛋清就会形成完美的形状。
  3. 使用塑料铲子或木勺轻轻触碰鸡蛋, 看看它是否粘在锅底。
  4. 继续煮鸡蛋约2分钟。

小贴士: 不要在水中添加任何其他东西, 也不要搅动水形成漩涡。这个方法我每次煮荷包蛋都是完美的椭圆形状。

Potato-Crusted Quiche/乳蛋饼


I haven’t been here for such a long time. I made this for Christmas eve breakfast, and it was really good. So I want to share with you today.

Here is the original recipe:

I substituted some vegetables with whatever I had in my refrigerator and also I used Chicken sausage instead of bacon, and everything else was the same. I used broccoli, scallion, tomato, Mushroom and onion.

我已经很久没来了。 昨天我做了这个乳蛋饼做早餐,很美味而且也容易做。




Different Flavor Pancakes/不同口味煎饼



  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 ¼ teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 ½ cups buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons non sweeten coco powder
  • 2 tablespoons green tea powder


  • Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and kosher salt together in a bowl. Divide them into 3 even portions.
  • Mix buttermilk,eggs and melted butter together. Divide them into 3 even portions.
  • Add coco powder to one of the flour mixtures and mix them together. Do the same to the green tea powder with another flour mixture.
  • Add buttermilk mixture to the flour mixtures separately for each flavor. Do not over mixed.
  • Heat a large nonstick griddle or skillet,  Brush a little bit of oil to the skillet. Turn heat up to medium–low and make 4 pancakes for each flavor.
  • Flip pancakes after bubbles rise to surface and bottoms lightly brown, about 2-3 minutes. Cook until the other sides are lightly browned too.

If you want to make sure they are still nice warm by the time you finish them all, preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Remove pancakes to a wire rack set inside a rimmed baking sheet, and keep them in the oven until all the pancakes are done.

I love the green tea flavor, this recipe makes really fluffy pancakes. If you like pancakes like me, you should really try this out.



3汤匙无盐黄油, 融化


把面粉, 糖, 泡打粉, 苏打粉和盐搅拌在一个碗里。把它们分成3个等分。
加可可粉到其中的一个面粉混合物中, 并混合在一起。同样的把绿茶粉加到另一份的面粉混合物中。
加热一个大的不粘锅或煎锅, 刷一点点油在锅面上。把火开到中小火, 每种口味可以做4个煎饼。
当你看到煎饼上面冒气泡和底部变微金色时, 约2-3 分钟。拿个大铲子翻面,煎到另一边也是微金色为止。

如果你想确保当你做完所有的饼他们都还热的话 , 预热烤箱到325华氏度。把煎饼放在一个烤盘里然后放在烤箱里, 直到饼全部做成。

我很喜欢绿茶的味道, 这个食谱做出来的煎饼非常蓬松好吃。如果你和我一样喜欢煎饼, 你真该尝试一下这个食谱。


Mango Yogurt Fruit Cup/芒果酸奶水果杯



I Didn’t think I was going to post it until someone asked me for recipe. He asked me what was the name of it and I actually didn’t have one. I love fresh fruits and their beautiful colors, I am trying to make any kind of food look beautiful, and this is actually successful! I didn’t think I would post it was because this is so simple, it doesn’t require cooking and can be done in no time.

I was making a mango crepe cake the other day, and I had some mango puree left, so I decided to make this: mango yogurt fruit cup.

On the bottom was mango puree, then fat free yogurt, followed by another layer mango puree, then mango whipped cream (heavy cream whip until firm peak then add some mango puree), finally topped with some fresh fruit.

If you don’t have time to do the whipped cream layer, just skip it by adding more yogurt instead. I sometimes add nuts or chia seeds in between too. But of course fresh fruits will always be a plus to this. Enjoy!





我之前都没想过张贴出来, 直到有人问我要食谱。他问我这叫名字, 我都答不上来。我喜欢新鲜的水果和他们美丽的颜色, 我很喜欢琢磨着怎么使任何一种食物看起来漂亮而让人有食欲, 这应该算是成功的例子!我不认为我会张贴它是因为这个非常简单, 感觉根本都没有贴的必要。

那天我在做芒果千层蛋糕, 我还有剩一些芒果酱, 所以我决定做这个: 芒果酸奶水果杯。

最底部是芒果浆, 然后是无脂酸奶, 然后是另一层芒果浆, 然后芒果生奶油 (奶油打到硬性发泡然后加一些芒果浆), 最后加一些新鲜水果在面上。

如果你没有时间做的奶油层, 跳过它加多一层酸奶代替也可以。有时我也会在两者之间加入坚果或奇亚籽。但当然新鲜水果将永远是最好的。
