Pork / Chicken / Fish Floss Mayonnaise Chiffon Swiss Roll (The Fluffier Recipe)

You don't understand ...

... or do you?

Every time I bake a pork floss (or any meat floss) mayonnaise chiffon cake, my son will squeal like a girl when he sees the cake, my husband will sit quietly and nom nom nom. And me? I will be thinking when should I bake another one... LOL!

This is another fantastic meat floss mayonnaise chiffon Swiss roll recipe that I have found. Instead of being the fail proof chiffon cake roll that I have baked at here, this cake can be just a LITTLE trickier to bake but I must say that it is definitely the fluffier kind.

"Healthy" Homemade Smooth Red Bean Paste / Hong Dou Sha 红豆沙

After enjoying the benefits of homemade smooth red bean paste, I can't emphasize any further that this is a no turning back move for me. Please pardon me for saying this... Whenever I see packs of commercially made red bean paste now, I can't help doing the eeew-eeew or tsk-tsk. Geez!

I can't stop thinking about the contents of red bean paste selling in the shops like... 1) What are the fats and sweetener that are added into the paste? Are the fats high in trans or saturated fats? Are the sweetener high in fructose? 2) How much fat and sweetener are added into the paste? 3) Is there any preservatives in the paste? Considering all questions, making my own red bean paste seems to be the only way to please the always-questioning me.

Having said that, I have to admit that the healthiest form of red bean paste red bean paste made with the least amount of fat and sugar is never smooth and tasty enough for an ultimate enjoyment. Hence, I have to make my paste with this "optimised" amount of oil and sugar to satisfy my sweet-tooth boy and at least, the good thing is I know that I'm not making my red bean paste with the kind of no trans fat healthful oil that I want.

Lemon Cake with Cognac - Simply Divine!!!

Lemony. Sweet. Soft. Moist. Buttery... Every mouthful of this lemon cake is so divine!

With or without cognac, I guarantee you that this is the lemon cake that will give you a zing at your first bite! And I'm pretty sure that it is not due to the addition of cognac because the alcohol content of the added cognac would have been cooked off during baking. This lemon cake is just so good because this easy and magic recipe from the book, 100 desserts to die for by Trish Deseine is working so beautifully!!!

Thanks Trish! My son and I love love love your book and this lemon cake!
