Different Flavor Pancakes/不同口味煎饼

IMG_0731

Ingredients

  • 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

Direction:

  • 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.

2杯普通面粉
3汤匙糖
1½茶匙泡打粉
1½茶匙小苏打粉
1¼茶匙盐
2½杯白脱牛奶
2个蛋
3汤匙无盐黄油, 融化
2汤匙不甜可可粉
2汤匙绿茶粉

方向:

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。
将白脱牛奶、鸡蛋和融化的黄油混合在一起。把它们也分成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。
分别在每个面粉混合物中加入白脱牛奶混合物。不要过度搅拌。
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

IMG_0382

IMG_0383

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。

ShaXian Wonton & Noodles With Peanut Butter Sauce/沙县扁肉拌面

IMG_9824.JPG

These two are very famous Fujianese Snacks. We call them snack, but they look more like a meal. These two have to be eaten together. Shaxian is a small town in Fujian province that is very famous for different kind of snacks. Fuzhounese wonton is not nearly as good as this one because the way the meat is processed. The meat in Shaxian wonton is much bigger and much more elastic.

IMG_9859

IMG_9864

ShaXian Wonton

Lean pork (meat from pig’s leg is preferred) 5oz.

Fuzhounese wonton skin 40- 50 pieces

Broth 4 cups

Cut pork into big thick slices, cut all the fascia off the meat, sprinkle 1/2 tsp baking soda over the meat, then use a hammer meat tenderizer to gently strike the meat for one hour. (Yes ONE hour)

Add 1/3 tsp salt, 1/3 tsp chicken bouillon, 2 pinches white pepper, 1/2 tsp dark soy sauce and 5 tbsps cold water to the meat and mix well.

Get 1 tsp of meat and wrap it with a piece of wonton skin. Since the wonton skin is super thin, all we need to do just pinch them together.

Bring a pot of water to boil, then cook the wontons in the boiling water for 3 minutes. Adjust the time according to your wonton’s meat size.

Divide the wontons to 3 different bowls, then add the broth (boil in a separated cookware. Add salt, white pepper, sesame oil and white vinegar to the broth) Then garnish with scallion.

瘦肉 (猪腿肉优先) 5 安司

福州扁肉皮 40-50 片

肉汤4杯

把猪肉切成大厚片, 切掉肉上的所有筋膜, 在肉上洒1/2 茶匙的苏打, 然后用锤肉的锤子轻轻地把肉锤打一小时。(是的一小时)

加入1/3 茶匙盐, 1/3 茶匙鸡肉精, 适量白胡椒, 1/2 茶匙老抽, 5 汤匙冷水, 拌匀。

拿1茶匙的肉, 用一块扁肉皮包起来。因为扁肉皮超薄, 我们需要做的只是轻轻捏一下就会粘在一起了。

煮沸一锅, 然后在沸水中煮扁肉3分钟。根据你扁肉的肉大小调整时间。

将扁肉分到3个碗里, 然后加入汤 ( 在另一个锅里煮开。将盐、白胡椒、芝麻油和白醋加入汤中, 然后用葱装饰。

Breakfast/早餐

I would like to share some of my day to day breakfast with you, I don’t have recipes here today. You may find most of them if you search here. After all these years, I believe breakfast is the most important meal of the day now.  I eat as much as I want for breakfast, but still most of time I am eating healthy. I don’t like some of the diets saying that we shouldn’t eat this, shouldn’t touch that. Our bodies need everything, we should eat everything! The most important thing for a healthy diet is watch the portion!

I love beautiful color, good presentations. I believe If you see something beautiful like above, you will want to eat them even if you don’t like any particular food. I will tell you some secrets: I don’t like boiled egg! I hate milk. I buy so much berries only because I love the colors and their looks. I hate the smell of plain yogurt. But you see everything I don’t like are here! Why? you’re asking. Well, I know they are good for me so I am eating them. In order for me to eat them happily is to make them look appealing or coming up with good recipes to make them taste delicious!  (For example I added plain yogurt and milk to berries to make beautiful smoothies which I love so much!)

So, if you don’t eat breakfast, start to get some ideas from here maybe for tomorrow morning? Ok everyone good eat, healthy life!

锅边

IMG_3684.JPG

锅边又叫鼎边锉,是福州非常出名的一道小吃。吃的时候一般配油条,虾酥,芋头糕之类的油炸品。 可以说没有吃过锅边的福州人一定是假福州人。 对于福州人来说,这就是最地道的福州早餐了。

材料:

沾米粉 1杯

水1杯

面粉 3汤勺

盐一小撮

将以上材料放一碗里搅拌均匀就是做锅边的浆了。

 

高汤  4杯

台湾小白菜 2 根(切丝)

葱1 条(切丝)

大干贝 2颗

干鱿鱼 1小片(3个手指头大,切丝)

五花肉丝 10 来丝

香菇 2朵(切丝)

黑木耳 3片(切丝)

 

WeChat Image_20170618223950

在一大号的不粘锅里炒五花肉丝到肉变色,加入干贝,鱿鱼丝继续炒2分钟后加入香菇,木耳和高汤煮7-8分钟。放入白菜和葱。

刚刚调好的浆再好好搅匀了拿一塑料的小碗装一些后沿着锅沿倒下去,要均匀的倒在锅沿上, 尽量不要倒到汤里去了,也不要倒太多。 这样做出来的锅边才不会太厚又很清爽。

如果火候够猛,你又倒浆倒的很薄, 盖子都不用盖,浆马上就变透明就卷边了(有时还自己就掉下去了)用个塑料的铲子把锅边铲到汤里。 如果锅子小,就一碗一碗的做,如果锅子大点的就继续在锅沿上倒浆重复上面的步骤。 一般也就重复3 遍, 放锅里煮太久锅边会煮的跟浆糊一样也不好吃。加虾油或鱼露(建议不要用盐代替)鸡粉和白胡椒粉调味。

喜欢比较稀一点的就加多点高汤,一般外面卖的都很稀。国内的都是用鼎来做,一次可以做一大锅,而且火够大做的也特别的快。 如果没有信心怕把浆倒到汤里的,也没有关系,将浆倒到平底的不粘锅里烧熟了以后再倒到汤里煮一下也是可以的。 一般外面卖的都喜欢用旧米来磨浆做,旧米没有粘度了这样做出来的锅边很清爽。但是缺点是吃起来比较硬。 我试过只有粘米粉做的, 加地瓜粉做的,都没有今天加面粉的好吃。

My Day To Day Food/日常普通的三餐

People think that I am so lucky eating all the good food and never gain weight. Is it possible that someone is eating anything he/she wants and not gaining any weight? I think it is either this person has some kind of disease or this person is VERY VERY VERY lucky. And I am not one of those people. I can gain weight easily just like anyone of you. Then you may ask the question all my friends asking me: then how come I still look kind of skinny? First of all, I am not skinny ( I may look like it). Secondly, I am not eating good, fancy, fatty food every day. On my day to day life, I am a very healthy eater, and I exercise regularly. I’ve been running since 2005.

From now on I am going to post some of my Normal food pictures with or without recipes. A lot of times after I finish cooking something, I realize the food turns out to be really good, but I don’t remember how much ingredients/spices I use. So I don’t post it here. I’ve seen some recipes telling people the amount of ingredients/spices used by saying about, some, maybe, I don’t like it. When I post the recipe, I want every ingredients I use to be accurate, so when a beginner wants to cook the dish, it will be easy for he/she to fellow.

Oat meal is one of my favorite food, on average I eat more than once a day. Today I am going to show you the oat meal I cook for breakfast. Remember beautiful color and nice presentation will always make a dish more attractive, you will see what I mean. Below are the ones I eat over the weekend when I have time to decorate it.

I also cook savory oatmeal too.

IMG_2025

Ok, so oatmeal I eat on most of week days will look like this… I usually add chia seeds. Plain!!!! Sometimes I add some brown sugar. Do you still want to eat it? Lol…

人们认为我很幸运, 吃了那么多的美食从不发胖。有没有可能有人可以吃他/她想要的所以东西而不发胖呢?我认为要不就是这人有某种疾病或这个人是非常非常非常的幸运。我不是以上的任何一种。我跟你们任何人一样容易变胖。那么你可能会问我所有的朋友经常问我的问题: 那为什么我看起来还是那么瘦?首先, 我不瘦 (我可能看起来像)。第二, 我也不是每天吃香喝辣。在我的生活中, 我是一个饮食非常健康的人, 而且我还经常锻炼。我从2005年就开始跑步了
从现在开始, 我要贴一些我平常吃的食物图片(也许有些没有食谱)。很多时候, 我煮完一道菜后才发现这道菜很好吃, 但我不记得用了多少配料/酱料。所以我不会张贴在这里。我曾看到有些食谱告诉人们材料用 一些, 适量, 我不喜欢这样写。当我张贴食谱时候, 我想把所有的量都说到最精准, 所以当一个初学者想学做的时候会很容易上手。
燕麦是我最喜欢的食物之一, 平均每天吃最少一次。今天我要给你们看一些我做的燕麦早餐。记住美丽的颜色和 精心的摆盘将使一个菜更有吸引力, 看了图片你会明白我的意思的。

  • Salt 1/3 tsp
  • 8 eggs
  • 8 strips Canadian bacon
  • 4 English muffins, split
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened

Directions

Hollandaise:

  1. Bring some water to a boil in a double boiler.  Make sure that water does not touch the top pan. Turn the heat to low, so the water is simmering. In the top of the double boiler, whisk together egg yolks, lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon water.
  2. Add the melted butter to egg yolk mixture gradually while whisking constantly. Whisk until all butter is incorporated. Whisk in salt, and then remove from heat. Place a lid on pan to keep sauce warm.

Egg benedict:

  3. Spread toasted muffins with softened butter, and top each one with a slice of bacon, followed by one poached egg. Drizzle them with hollandaise sauce. I love avocado, so I will add a few pieces of I have it handy.

成分

  • 3个蛋黃
  • 1 1/2 湯匙檸檬汁
  • 1湯匙水
  • 1条黃油 (8 湯匙), 融化
  • 鹽1/3 茶匙

 

  • 8只雞蛋
  • 8片加拿大培根
  • 4个英國松餅
  • 2湯匙黃油, 軟化

 

烹饪方法:

荷蘭酱:

  1. 在雙鍋爐里把底下的水煮沸,。 確保底下的水不会觸及頂部的鍋。把火调最小, 這樣水就不會沸騰。在雙層鍋爐的頂部, 將蛋黃、檸檬汁和1湯匙水攪拌在一起。
  2. 在不斷攪拌的同時, 逐漸將融化的黃油加入蛋黃混合物中。攪拌直到所有黃油都融入到蛋黄中。加鹽继续攪拌, 然後从锅上拿开。將鍋蓋蓋上, 以保温。

 

荷蘭酱荷包蛋

  1. 煮开半锅的水难后转小火。把雞蛋分开打到一個小碗裡, 然後小心地倒入水中, 加蓋煮大約4分鐘。中心蛋黃應該還是軟的。用篦勺把雞蛋從水中取出。
  2. 當雞蛋在煮的時候, 开始煎培根, 並烤英國松餅。
  3. 塗点軟化黃油在松餅上, 难后加一片培根, 然後再加一個荷包蛋。用荷蘭汁淋在上面。我很喜欢奶油果,所以加了几片。
