Welcome to 2023 Top 6 recipes! Definitely hard to pick a favorite!
In my personal life, Bryan and I have done a bit of traveling this year, United Kingdom, Miami and Vancouver. Meeting up with old friends and seeing something new. I felt refreshed and inspired. Definitely looking forward to more trips in 2024. Also, we’re trying to get out more on the weekends and holidays. I feel like that we have spent too much time indoor, so it’s good for us to get out and walk more.
For the blog, I have pushed myself a bit more this year. I’m happy that I created more new recipes compare to last year. I have also started a new newsletter, so I can share more and connect with you guys better. (Sign up here!) In my opinion, a decent year for the blog.
Thank you so much for your supports and many heartwarming comments. Seeing you guys trying my recipes really means a lot to me.❤️ Looking forward to sharing more delicious recipes in 2024!
Happy 2024! Wishing you a year filled with happiness and lots of tasty food!
Here are our 2023 Top 6 Recipes:
6. Strawberry Rhubarb Trifle – This recipe was inspired by our trip to the United Kingdom. Rhubarb desserts are very popular in London, and we ate plenty of it. My version is layered with pound cake, syrup, rhubarb, strawberry & mascarpone whipped cream.
5. Apple, Pear and Snow Fungus Soup – This classic Cantonese soup is light, little sweet and a hint of sour. It’s perfect way to nourish your lungs and body for the cold days.
4. Hojicha Panna Cotta – If I can have Panna Cotta everyday, this would be the one. Melt in your mouth and with a roasted tea flavor! It tasted like a rich milk tea.
3. Shredded Chicken and Cucumber with Sesame Dressing – This dish is cold and savory, which is great for hot summer nights. Tender chicken, refreshing cucumber, chewy noodles and a creamy nutty sauce. Who can say no?
2. Red Curry Risotto with Shrimps – Thai red curry paste, coconut milk, fish sauce & tons of aromatic. This unusual risotto is packed with flavors and great for any romantic date night.
1. Hong Kong Style Macaroni Soup with Ham – I’m surprised this recipe is so popular. It’s a dish that you can find in Hong Kong style cafes (cha chaan teng). It’s a light and comforting noodle soup, that is ready in 20 minutes. This brings me right back to Hong Kong!
BONUS – My Favorite Recipe of the Year:
Guava Cream Cheese Swirl Ice Cream – Another recipe inspired by a trip. This time is Little Havana in Miami. Cream cheese ice cream with swirls of guava jam & crushed Maria cookies. Bryan and I both agreed that this may just be the BEST ice cream I have ever made!
