♥ Sriracha Mayo Deviled Egg ♥



Deviled eggs are always the easy party-appetizer. Classic deviled eggs filling are usually egg yolks, mayonnaise, mustard and sweet pickle relish, but for a spicy twist, I have added a special ingredient to these creamy eggs. 


Sriracha Mayo!



I have learnt to cook the perfect hard-boiled egg precisely. A perfect no green ring yolk, creamy and mellow. Just remember the rules, starts with cold water, and let them sit in hot water bath for at least 15 minutes. Run them under cold water and peel off carefully.

Make 1 dozen
You'll need:
6 eggs
3 tbsp Sriracha mayo, I used Lee Kum Kee
1 tsp dijon mustard
1 tsp lemon juice
Pinch of salt
Black pepper to taste
Black truffle paste to serve

How to make Sriracha deviled eggs:
  1. Place eggs in a saucepan and add enough cool water to cover them. Bring to a boil over high heat without a lid, until it reaches a rolling boil, turn off the heat, cover and let sit in the hot water bath for 15 minutes.
  2. Peel and halve the eggs. Carefully remove the yolks and reserve the whites.
  3. Combine egg yolk, Sriracha mayonnaise, dijon mustard, lemon juice, salt and black pepper to taste. Mix well until the yolk is almost smooth and evenly incorporated.
  4. Place the egg yolk mixture in a piping bag fitted with star tips, pipe into the reserved egg white halves. To serve, top with black truffle paste.

♥ Cherry Chocolate Gooey Blondie ♥



Gooey...chewy...hmmm! These blondie bars are full of caramel flavor.



The soft brown sugar has made its caramelized flavor, giving a very sticky texture. 


The combination of cherry and chocolate reminds me of black forest cake. I used a cherry preserve which mostly has whole cherry in it, but if you only have the jam, swirl them into the batter.

♥ Honey Walnut Shrimps ♥



Honey walnut shrimp is an interesting American-style Chinese food I have come across during my exchange at San Francisco. It is a combination of sweet and salty, crunchy and creamy, which is common in form of takeaway.



It consists of shrimps coated in an egg-white-corn-starch batter, deep fried to golden brown and toss together in a creamy sweet mayo dressing, serves with more caramelized walnuts.


This honey walnut shrimp is so easy to make and it is so much healthier than takeout! You can control the among and calorie of the creamy honey sauce by using low-fat mayonnaise and light milk.

♥ Kit Kat Hazelnut Cookies ♥



It has been a while since I baked some fresh, soft and chewy cookies. My family and friends miss them. 



When it comes to soft cookies, I always look for oatmeal, nuts which add a contrary crunchy texture. The Kit Kat chocolate bars are chopped into 1 inch size and I just throw them into the cookie dough.


Nom nom nom! They are so delicious! Hazelnut plus chocolate, how does that sound?
Oh please! Can I have a glass of cold milk? :)

♥ No Bake Peanut Butter Coconut Cereal Bar ♥


What is your best healthy treat? To celebrate the "early" Easter, I have made some breakfast cereal bar. Using only peanut butter, coconut oil and added some flaxseed.



They are crunchy, with a strong nutty flavor which definitely fill your day long.




I am recently so addicted to this Japanese fruit cereal from Calbee. But if you can't find one or anything similar, please use rice krispy treat as the original recipe does. A little chocolate doesn't hurt anybody too :)
