Actually I have been slowly cleaning up my blog for the past weeks. I realised that many of my old blog posts were all misaligned.
As you know, I lost my data twice within these 6 years of blogging and thus my recipe index was not in proper order. I guess it is also time for me to revisit some recipes that I enjoyed.
Since we are in the midst of Lunar New Year celebration, I decided to prepare my mom's braised mushrooms. Mom's does it so well that even my new brother in law is using it as a bench mark for his new wife. Tough.
So if you are a mushroom lover, I guarantee you that you will definitely love this dish.
With the heavy diet we had the last few days, I think 斋菜 will be a good change for our palette.
Okay now let’s continue to enjoy the bonding time with family and friends.
I am submitting the above to Aspiring Bakers #15: Auspicious Dishes for CNY (January 2012) hosted by Wen of Wen's Delight.
