Dingoozat's Ants On The Log - Honey Baked Ham Cheesy Egg Roll 芝士火腿蛋卷







I named this Ants On The Log... Aren't the sesame seeds looks like ants? Got it? lol..


It's so hard to get my boy to eat his breakfast in the morning. So I got to think of something that is 'bright in color' to tempt him. This is similar to the Seaweed Egg Roll that I made for him few months back. I like to make egg rolls for breakfast because it's so easy and nutritious. You may want to see other egg roll recipes:

Method:

1. Add milk to egg, lightly whisk with a pair of chopsticks.




2. Heat oil in a skillet, cook the ham. This step is optional if you use cooked ham. However, I prefer not to give him 'cold' ham in the morning. 

3. Transfer the ham to a plate. Pour the egg mixture onto the pan (i use non stick pan). When the egg is about to cook through, flip over.





4. Turn off the heat and continue to cook with the remaining heat. Place 2 cheese in the middle.




5. Place the ham and the cheese on top.




6. Roll up. 





7. Add toppings, cut and serve warm.

Stir-fry Vegetable & Pork/ Chicken with Sweet Pineapple Sauce 韩式凤梨酱炒杂菜肉片



This is a simple stir fry with simple seasoning. I love this Korean BBQ Pineapple Sauce because the pineapple puree in the sauce helps to tenderize the meat. So no worries of coarse meat! My boy and I can easily finish a big bowl of rice with just one dish! Superb!

Asian Pear Chicken Soup - improve skin complexion & nourish the lungs 雪梨鸡汤 - 养颜润肺的养生汤


I don't like to add pears or apples in my soup because I don't like the slightly sour or acidic taste in the soup. But today, I tried again with pears and chicken with some ginger slices. The taste is totally different with the ginger slices. You won't taste the ginger either but it neutralize the sour taste of the pear. This soup tastes superb! 

This will be the soup that I will cook again and again. Loves the natural sweetness from the pear and wolfberry. 


Ingredients: (Yield 2-3 servings)

1 Kampung Chicken Bones or Pork Bones
2 Large Pears /  3 Small Pears (peeled and cut into big chunks)


Can use any asian pears 

5 Seedless Red Dates
2 Slices of Ginger


Handful of wolfberry 
Some salt to taste

Sugar Cane & Water Chestnut Refreshing Drink - ideal for cooling body heat and nourish the lungs 马蹄竹蔗水 - 清热润肺,下火去燥



When I feel something is 'not right' with my boy, I will make some cooling remedy for him. 'Not right' defined as: when he has the sign of 'cough' or bad breath or no appetite ..etc. This is one of it. 

Again, I learnt this from my mom. My mom used to cook this with additional fresh sugar cane and she used the whole water chestnut without peeling off the skin. Just smashed and cook. I like to eat the cooked water chestnut but I find it hard to peel after cooked, so my version is to use peeled water chestnut. Not sure if this would affect the quality of this drink, but I simply love this drink and the sweet water chestnut. :)



Ingredients: (Yield 2 servings)
1 pack of Sugar Cane (ready mix)



8 Water Chestnut 




1.5 litre Hot Water
Some Rock Sugar to taste

2. Drain and transfer to a pot. Add in water chestnut and water. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium. Cook for 1 hour. Add rock sugar to taste. Cook another 20 minutes. Serve warm or chilled.

Anchovies Powder aka Ikan Bilis Powder 江鱼仔粉



This is a MUST have item in the kitchen BUT I don't make this for my boy when he was a baby.  When he was baby - toddler, I cooked porridge with chicken or pork with carrots, peas, potatoes and topped with some blanch vegetables. Anchovies are far too 'salty' for my baby's food. So I omit this until now he's a preschooler, I use this to enhance the flavor in stir fry vegetables like cabbage, fried rice, soup, porridge and many more dishes. With this, I can omit oyster sauce or other store bought seasoning that packed with preservatives and MSG. 


Ingredients:
200g Anchovies aka Ikan Bilis (cleaned)


Method:

1. Wash the anchovies thoroughly. Soak in clean water for few minutes, rinse 2-3 times. 
2. Dry with kitchen towel by batch.


3. Place the dried anchovies in the Tefal Actifry pan. Cook for 18 minutes or until crispy.




4. Transfer to a plate. Spread to cool a little.


5. Transfer to a food processor/ blender. Blend until it turn powdery.




6. When it's done, wait for 1 minute before you open the lid. 


7. Sieve the anchovies powder. 




8. Transfer to an airtight container, store in the fridge. 


Alternatively, you can bake the anchovies in an oven at 180'C for 20-25 minutes or fry in a skillet without oil until crispy.
