Sorry, I just couldn’t help it!  I had so much fun making these Sour Lemon Meringue Cookies with my Little Girl.  We were laughing, joking, and goofing around in the kitchen as we bake and enjoy each other's company…and these cookies, of course!

If you haven’t watched my video tutorial yet, you’ve got to check it out.  I guaranteed that you won’t be disappointed! I’ll show you step by step procedures on how to create the perfect rainbow swirls that shaped these cookies.  They are actually easier than you think.  Plus, you’ll get my tips and secret on how to make the perfect meringue cookies!

These rainbow colored Sour Lemon Meringue Cookies are made from all natural food coloring deprived from fruit and vegetables (I’ll link my food coloring tutorials below this post).  If you don’t have the time to make your own coloring, I’ve found out that my local health-food store/supermarket do carry some all natural coloring options.  I’ll list the product links below this post so that you can check them out as well.

If you’ve baked meringue cookies before, you know that they don’t like moisture!  So, we bake them at low temperature for a long time.  Plus, we need to be careful on the flavoring option as well.  Since I made these in lemon flavor, I use lemon zest to give these cookies the refreshing lemony aroma.  But for the tartness, I used citrus acid (which is really sour and in powder form) instead of fresh lemon juice.  That way, I won’t be adding too much moisture into the batter.

These cookies are so light, crispy, and packed with lemony aroma.  The sweetness and tartness is perfectly balanced!  Give them a try and you’ll fall in love with them.

Tea Flavor Cookies - 4 Ways (Original, Matcha Green Tea, Earl Grey, and Rose)



My Little Girl and I love tea parties.  We often host our own “party” at home for afternoon tea.  From savory sandwiches, petit fours, French Macaron, hot chocolate, to classic English tea, you name it and we’ve tried them all!  One of our favorites got to be these Tea Flavor Cookies!  Not only they are quite easy to prepare, they are also very delicious!  The bonus is that they are super adorable, don’t you agree? 

How to Make Tea Flavor Cookies - 4 Ways (Original, Matcha Green Tea, Earl Grey, and Rose)    http://uTry.it

Today, I’m going to show you how to make them, not just 1, but all 4 flavors.  I’ll show you how to turn 1 basic cookie dough into 4 different flavors: the Original flavor, Matcha Japanese Green  Tea, Earl Grey, and Rose.  If you have some other tea that you enjoy more other than those that I listed,  by all means, substitute with the tea or tea bags of your choice.

These Tea Flavor Cookies are crispy, buttery, and elevated with a hint of tea flavor.  I kept the tea flavor to the mild side because that’s how My Girl likes them.  If you prefer a stronger tea flavor, check out my recipe notes below and I’ll show you how to do that as well.

Brazilian Cheese Bread (Pão de Queijo) 一口芝士包



Are you ready for summer vacation?  My family has been dreaming of our summer holiday since the beginning of the year!  We’re into the homestretch month now!  Although we’re still as busy as ever with school work and other activities, we’re getting very excited!  I guess seeing the light at the end of the tunnel really helps!  What are your plans for this summer?  Any good suggestion for activities?  Feel free to share with me in the comment below.  It’s much appreciated!

How to Make Brazilian Cheese Bread (Pão de Queijo) 一口芝士包   http://utry.it

Besides the usual summer outdoor activities, I know I’ll be cooking, baking, and creating treats with my kids often!  It’s definitely something that we enjoy a lot and always look forward to do together.  In fact, we have already picked out some recipes that we're going to prepare together.  If you have any recipe request, please don’t hesitate to let me know.  I’ll try my best to make it share with you!

How to Make Brazilian Cheese Bread (Pão de Queijo) 一口芝士包   http://utry.it

Today, I have this easy, fun, and super delicious recipe to share with you: Brazilian Cheese Bread (Pão de Queijo) 一口芝士包!  These cheesy little golden nuggets are naturally gluten-free.  It’s made with tapioca flour, and….lots of cheese!  It’s one of the cheesiest little 1-bite popper you’ll ever encounter!  They are crispy on the outside, slightly chewy on the inside, and super cheesy with the nutty parmesan and gruyere cheeses!  As you might already knew, the real Parmigiano Reggiano is on the pricy side.  Watch the video tutorial above and I’ll show you how to distinguish if you’re using the real ones!  These cheesy popper are so addictive and you’ll agree that they’re worth the extra bucks!

How to Make Brazilian Cheese Bread (Pão de Queijo) 一口芝士包   http://utry.it

My recipe call for 2 types of cheeses, but you can use parmesan cheese alone, or use any strong, hard to semi-hard cheese (to substitute gruyere) if you like.  I usually prepare the full recipe, bake off of the amount that I needed, and keep the rest of the dough in the fridge for later.  That way, you can enjoy these warm and freshly baked cheesy bread whenever you crave for some. It’s a very forgiving recipe, as there is no need to knead or raise the dough, and your bread always comes out nice and delicious!

Mango Swiss Roll (芒果瑞士卷蛋糕):



Finally, it’s the peak of the mango season!  Fresh Ataulfo Mangoes are simply my favorites.  When they are in season, I often get them in cartons (about 16 to 20 mangoes in a carton).  Not only I enjoy them fresh as is, I also like to create different treats with these refreshing and juicy mangoes. I’ll list some of my other creations at the end of the post if you’re interested.  But today, let me show you how to make this gorgeous Mango Swiss Roll Cake!
