Bone Broth Recipe

Making your own bone broth from home can take many hours. Yesterday I slow boil the pork bone for 10 hours and managed to get rich creamy bone broth. I used pork bone only. This broth can be used as Ramen soup base ( refer to the link here for the recipe )

I like to have the stock ready for stir fried vegetables or as a soup base for any noodles. This bone broth is rich creamy after low rolling boil for 10 hours. So worth it, as this broth is rich in collagen and calcium and other rich nutrients. 

after 10 hours, this is how it looks like

Red Bean Sweet Soup With Matcha Glutinous Rice Balls

It has been our family tradition to have sweet dessert served on the first day of Chinese New Year. This year is Rabbit Year. Wishing everyone a blessed CNY. May the Rabbit Year brings good health, joy and Wealth to all of us. 

I cooked a small pot of Red Bean Sweet Soup and added Matcha Glutinous Rice Balls filled with Peanut Butter. Great combo and a great start to a good year.

I used Niko Neko matcha powder. So fragrant. Great for ice cream too. 

I added dried longan to the red bean sweet soup for extra texture

The Matcha Glutinous balls are filled with Peanut butter...
for easy handling, lightly dab the hand with water

Divide dough into 15 balls each weighing 11 gm. Fill with peanut butter or anything of your your choice. 

Tip: for easy handling...lightly wet the hand when wrapping the balls. And it also gives the ball a smooth surface.

Ribbon Cookies

Ribbon Cookies all time favourite cookies. I watch a you tube video showing how it was done. I knew I had to jump onboard and join my other friends in making CNY cookies. It is very to make, even a first timer like me can make it. The texture is fluffy and yet crunchy. Perfect sweetness, not overly sweet. A keeper for sure. I am glad I gave it a try. You can try too. I have the link posted at the end of the page for your reference. 

I enjoy the folding and shaping of the cookies
