Recipe: Chinese stuffed eggplant (煎釀茄子) + instruction video

on Wednesday, July 27, 2016
In the video underneath, I will teach you how to make Chinese stuffed eggplant (煎釀茄子). You may have tried this dish before in a Chinese restaurant and wondered how they made them. They are really soft and delicious, so give it a try at home. The version I make is less oily than the one in Chinese restaurants, as I pan-fry them, let them boil, and in the end, make a thick sauce.

New in: Flying Tiger Summer items

on Monday, July 25, 2016
Lately, tropical temperatures have reached the Netherlands and I bought some items at the Flying Tiger store, which really suit the tropical summer theme. If you have been following me for a long time, you would know that I really adore the color, coral. I happened to spot these cute cocktail sticks (flamingos!) and padlock in this color. I also think that relaxation is essential when you go on vacation, so even if, I cannot get a full body massage on a tropical island, I can still get a massage at home with this massage ball.

Review: Bram's Gourmet Frites - Captain's Beef and Pumpkin Veal

on Sunday, July 24, 2016
On my first visit to the Bram's Gourmet Frites shop in Rotterdam-South, I ordered the Pulled Pork (review). I also wrote a review of that on their Facebook page and I won a discount card with which I can get the second stew for half the price. I had been too busy and I caught a very bad flu, so I hadn't had a chance to visit the shop again for a long time. But recently, I happened to be in the area and I ordered the Captain's Beef and Pumpkin Veal with a nice discount.
