The sesame cake balls you see here rank number one on my childhood favorite list. Cake balls are coated with sesame seeds and then deep fried to golden brown. They taste crunchy on the outside, soft and fluffy and sweet on the inside. They are the most delicious snacks I could think of as a child.

Dumplings are so widely popular in China that it becomes comfort food for many Chinese people. Before the time food processor and stand mixer were introduced our daily lives, making dumplings was a time consuming chore. My family made them only a couple times a year to celebrate important holidays. The whole family gathered in the kitchen, kneading, chopping, mixing and wrapping the dumplings all together. Ahhh, good old times.

COCO SWIRL STEAMED BUNS 可可双色馒头卷

When I was a child, my mom always handed me a little piece of dough when I volunteered to help out in the kitchen. I got creative with it, turning it into a bunny, a daisy flower, or whatever I could think of. They were not at all vivid or pretty judging from an adult’s view point, but my mom was so happy to see my little creations. Well, that might be the very starting point of my interest in cooking.

I did these coco swirl buns before. What is different is that I use a pasta roller this time, so that the rolls are smoother and better looking, I think.

May 30th is the Chinese Dragon Boat Festival in 2017. The festival is set according to the lunar calendar, so it comes on different days every year. Mostly it is either May or June.
Rice dumplings are the most traditional food to have on this day. I make rice dumplings every year too. It is fun to make them; even more fun to eat them

CHICKEN SOUP WITH OYSTER MUSHROOMS AND CHINESE YAM 淮山蘑菇炖鸡汤

What Asian people mean by chicken soup is quite different from American chicken soup. Our chicken soup is more like broth with diced chicken in it with added herbs or vegetables. Southern Chinese are known for their delicious and wide variety of soups. The soups my grandma usually made in her kitchen were chicken soup and pork rib soup. I grew up eating them and now they are two of the most frequent soups I make in my kitchen too.
