Homemade simple bulgogee Seasoned meat patty, learned from a talented mommy from a FB forum.  So it’s very kids friendly, yet yummy enough for adults.

Combine “Soy sauce, applesauce, garlic, onion and maybe some sugar if anyone likes it sweeter”

So I think the proportion to marinate 1 pound of ground turkey would be like:

  • 1  tablespoon soy sauce (or more?  usually kids don’t eat as salty)
  • 2 tablespoon applesauce
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp chopped onion (or 1 tsp onion powder, or simply omitted)
  • 1+1/2 tbsp sugar

(obviously all mommies cook by just eye balling and never record the exact measurements… so use your cooking experience.  Safest is to premix the marinade and taste first before mixing into the meat)

Egg Tarts


I made several attempts of making my favorite desserts:  egg tarts, and guess what, it’s one of the desserts I failed at least ten times of making.  I like both cookie and puff pastry crust versions, yet at home of course it’s eaiser to make cookie dough than the layered pastry dough.  I wonder why no one posts a really good recipe online.  It’s such a common item in Chinese bakeries and dim sum places, yet the homemade recipes yield such a inferior texture.   I will keep searching different published recipes and see if I finally come across the perfect butter cookie crust and smooth like silk custard recipe.  As for now, this one I tried today is good enough for my husband and kids (obviously haven’t met my standard yet).

This recipe was translated and adapted (with small changes) from :   Sugarlicious: Hong Kong style egg tart 港式蛋撻.
