My first ever traditional Kuih Kapit a.k.a Love Letters. I am not sure how many of you willing to try out this traditional Kuih Kapit which bake over charcoal grill, as it was really not easy task. Anyway, I still want to keep this traditional recipe on my blog here as to pass down this traditional recipe to younger generation.
When i first see this cookie, immediately bookmark to make them because they are so adorable. It was shared by a Japanese chef Maa . Before i can make them, i have to get the cutter first.Later i realized that not just any bear cookie cutter is suitable to make them, some are too short and some are tall.
Whenever i have some good yam, sure use it to make a good steamed savoury yam cake. This time i made slight changes from the usual yam cake since CNY is approaching ( 讨个好意头嘛）, added Chinese sausages or Lap Cheong and mushroom, similar like Hong Kong style of Lo Pa Gao aka radish cake.
The other day one reader left a comment in a very old post (way back 2009), said everyone should try this very soft bread. This is a bread recipe that i have totally forgotten. After i re-check back the recipe, and realized that this recipe is using egg white. Since that day i have leftover egg white, so i go ahead to modify this old recipe into plain loaf bread.
Before blogging, i did make this cookie during CNY. But don't know why, i just stopped making this cookies after i started blogging, maybe due to too many new recipes to try out ^_^ Since few readers requested me to share this recipe, so this year i made them again.
I have so long did not have this Hei Zho 虾枣 which is one of the Hokkien common dish serve during CNY. I remember my mother did cook this dish when i was young, sometime she also made crab version called as Ching Zho 蟹枣. But don't know since when she has stopped making this dish during CNY but instead she made the Hokkien meat balls which is nice too.
