Kung Pao Chicken / Kung Po Chicken / Gong Bao Chicken No joke, this dish is listed in Wikipedia. Some named it Kung Pao Chicken, Kung Po Chicken, Gong Bao Chicken and etc. Click here to know more details about this dish. Thanks to Haslina Abdul Majid, my new found friend sharing this recipe in FB. When I saw the video, it seemed so easy to cook and I told myself that I need to  challenge myself to cook this dish. Our family has been ordering this dish whenever we eat outside but I never tried it myself to cook it, maybe scared of failure (LOL).  This dish is very flavourful but the end verdict by my family and I are as follows :- "don't like the taste of the Szechuan Peppercorn (added too much?)". Next try, will omit the Szezhuan Peppercorn. Ingredients :-  2 whole skinless leg Chicken (trim the fat, deboned and sliced into pieces). 1/2 handful of Spring Onion (clean and cut roughly). 10 pieces of Dried Chills (soak with water and deseed). 1 tbsp chopped Garlic. 1 tbsp chopped Ginger. 1/2 tbsp Szechuan Peppercorn. Marinade the chicken with 2 tsp dark soya sauce, 2 tsp shaoxing wine, 2 tsp corn starch and 1/4 tsp pepper for 30 minutes. Prepare the sauce for cooking and set aside - 1 tsp dark soya sauce, 1 tbsp soya sauce, 1 tbsp black vinegar, 1 tbsp sugar, 1/2 cube chicken stock. Mix 1 tbsp of the cooking oil into the marinated chicken and stir well. Heat up 1 tbsp of cooking oil and cook until 3/4 cooked and dish out. Add some cooking oil and heat it up. Add  garlic, ginger, szechuan peppercorn, dried chilli and fry until the aroma surfaced. Add the 3/4 cooked chicken and spring onion and stir fry until cooked. Even though we don't like the taste of the Szechuan Peppercorn, we still finished this dish. Instead of eating with rice, you can eat with steamed plain pau :)

  • The Saffron Vanilla Snickerdoodle Cookies sold at Blue Bottle Coffee are a favorite of mine. I like to sit in the sun on the beautiful stone slab benches across from the Blue Bottle Coffee kiosk in Hayes Valley, San Francisco with a macchiato a snickerdoodle to share. This, the first Blue Bottle Coffee location, is just a short walk from my house in an alleyway. A not-so-secret spot, slightly off the main strip – source of excellent coffee and cookies! I also love to have lazy breakfasts beneath the tall ceilings, light streaking through the massive windows, in their cafe at Mint Plaza. I’ve known there was a Blue Bottle Coffee book in the works, and each time I go, I find myself uttering the same nine words, usually with my mouth full – I really hope this recipe is in the book. In addition to their coffee, which I’m more than happy to brave a line for, I have a list of go-to favorites from their beautifully concise and inspired menu. My hope was that all would be in the book: these Saffron-Vanilla Snickerdoodles, the Pickled Fennel Egg Salad, the Sesame Absinthe Cigars, and Catalan Eggs with Braised Greens. Check, check, check, and check! Every one is in the book. And like all things Blue Bottle, this is worth the wait. The Best Snickerdoodle Cookies The book will be released October 9th (I originally posted this in 2012), but I’ve been hassling Ten Speed to get me an early copy for months. In part because I wanted to bump up my coffee know-how, but (no surprise) I was particularly excited about the recipes – the Saffron Vanilla Snickerdoodle Cookies were first up. In contrast to traditional snickerdoodles, Caitlin describes them as having “an unusual butterscotch flavor from the combination of saffron, brown sugar and vanilla.” If you love snickerdoodles, please try these! Now, I know these cookies well, and this recipe delivered a version that is a dead-ringer of the original. The same as the ones I would buy at the kiosk – buckle in the middle, kiss of saffron, a thin golden crust that gives way to a fudge-textured center. Thank you. Arguably the best snickerdoodle cookies I’ve ever had. I made a double batch for a family trip to Lake Tahoe last week – baking half for the drive there, freezing the remaining pre-scooped dough to bake at the cabin. Everyone loved them. I hope you like these as much as I do, make a double batch and freeze half of the pre-scooped dough for later baking. And be sure to measure the saffron carefully -it’s easy to go too light/heavy. xo -h Continue reading Saffron Vanilla Snickerdoodle Cookies on 101 Cookbooks
