無肉蘑菇肉丸 Meatless Mushroom Meatballs


最近愈來愈多親友成為素食主義者。當他們來我家吃飯時,我喜歡為他們動點腦筋,煮些特別的素食菜式。

Recently, more and more of my friends and family have become vegetarians. When they come to my house for dinner, I like to spend time cooking something special for them.

貴妃梨杏仁餡餅 Pear and Almond Tart


每年聖誕來臨之前,我們在欣喜期待之餘,亦會感嘆地說:「一年時間過得真快!」

Every year, the run up to Christmas fills us with excitement. We get to look forward to all the preparations and events that await us; but in the meantime, can't help but feel slightly overwhelmed about how quickly a year has gone by!

辣椒燉牛肉醬 Chilli Con Carne


在兒子 7 歲那年,他第一次被同學邀請參加「焰火之夜」的晚會,我們起初還有些猶豫,因為小孩子對火的好奇有時令人擔心。幸好隔天我便收到了邀請函,原來每個被邀請的孩子,爸媽也都同時被邀請參與。 

When our son was seven, he was invited to a Bonfire night party for the first time, hosted by one of his school friend’s parents at their house. We were initially somewhat hesitant as young children could get so excited by the fire, however it turned out that the whole family was invited too so we gladly went along.

蘋果寶貝鬆餅 Apple Dutch Baby Pancake



不記得我在那兒讀過這樣的一句話:『最好吃的秋天甜品是那些加了蘋果的。』

亦不知為何,我對任何用雞蛋、麵粉和牛奶烘出來的鬆餅類食物,都無法抗拒。

I once read somewhere, “The best fall desserts are the ones that have apples in them.”

And I don’t know why, I can never resist anything that’s made with egg, flour and milk.

煎燒魚柳大蝦蕎麥麵湯 Pan-Fried Fish Fillets and King Prawn Soba Noodle Soup


我們也太喜歡吃麵了,因為愛吃,便時常選擇不同的健康食材配搭。不想吃肉的時候,會用魚、蝦、海鮮、豆腐、蛋、蔬菜、鮮菇或乾香菇等做食材。

蘋果肉桂杏仁蛋糕 Apple and Cinnamon Almond Cake



昨天九月二十三日,是農曆的秋分,也是西曆秋至。正式告別了夏日,開始用期盼的心情去迎接逐漸轉涼的季候,和一個比一個溫暖熱閙的中西節慶。

It was 23rd September yesterday, also the autumn equinox on both eastern and western calendar. As we bid farewell to summer, we begin to welcome in the colder seasons, looking forward to all of the exciting celebrations and festivals which are just around the corner.

岩石拱門 Durdle Door


上次被老公抓去 Dorset 玩了幾天,出門前因未完成的工作太多,起程時不免有點心不在焉。

也算他瞭解,找了間向海,在燈塔附近的酒店停留。然後每天所到之處,都是令我迷戀的海邊和小城村鎮。到後來,不願離去的人,竟是我!

今天與大家分享這個自侏羅紀至今有1.4億年老的海灘,名字是 Durdle Door 岩石拱門。這是一個世界著名的地理奇景,它巨大的拱門形岩石, 立於侏羅紀海岸的 Swanage 和 Weymouth 之間,在 Lulworth Cove 沿岸。

海邊的週年紀念 Anniversary by the sea


 最近為了寫書和攝影的工作忙得不知時日。那天老公竟突然説要帶我去海邊玩幾天,我還以為他跟我開玩笑!


I’ve been that busy writing the book and doing photography work lately that I hadn't really been keeping track of the date. My husband suggested a trip to the seaside for a little break the other day and at first I thought he was joking!

簡單美味清湯牛肉河粉 Simple and Delicious Beef Rice Noodles


我們大家都愛吃麵。如果你想吃得健康卻沒有很多時間下廚的話,煮麵就是最理想不過的選擇了。

可是很多時候,當肚子餓了,需要一頓簡易、美味而富營養的快餐那一刻,也不是每個人會下意識地想起要下些麵來充飢。

但為甚麼不會呢?

We're all wild about noodles. They are perfect if you are trying to eat a little more healthily but don't have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen.

However, it seems that noodles are not the first thing many people think of when they are hungry and are in need of a tasty and quick meal.

But why not?

情人節快樂 Happy Valentine's Day


從前每逢情人節的早上,我的房門外和廚房飯桌上,總會有兩張情人節卡片等我打 開。 每張下方都是署名「妳祕密的仰慕者」再附上數不清的手繪小 kisses。 


那些年 ...... 真令人懷念 ...... 

What seems to me like a long time ago now, there was a little tradition in our house on Valentine’s Day. On these mornings, there would always be two Valentine’s cards left for me on the kitchen table or outside my bedroom waiting to be opened. 

Inside, the cards would be signed “Your secret admirer”, with lots of little kisses for good measure. 
Those were the days ... I miss them so much.
