I made coconut tarts yesterday and my family loved them.

Our riff on the traditional tarte Tatin is individually sized and topped with tangy pineapple, flaky toasted coconut, and a hint of ginger.

Game plan: The tarts can be made up to 4 hours ahead, cooled completely, stored in an airtight container, and reheated on a baking sheet at 300°F for 5 to 10 minutes.

If you don’t have a 12-well muffin pan, you can use two 6-well muffin pans; just be sure to bake them side by side in the oven.

This recipe was featured as part of both our New Year’s Eve Speakeasy Party and our story on hand-held meals you can make in a muffin pan.
.
INGREDIENTS

•1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
•1/4 cup unsweetened flaked coconut
•1 (14- to 16-ounce package) frozen puff pastry, thawed according to the package directions
•Flour, for dusting the work surface
•2 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar
•1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
•1/8 teaspoon fine salt
•2 cups fresh, small-dice pineapple

INSTRUCTIONS

Heat the oven to 375°F and arrange a rack in the middle. Generously coat a 12-well muffin pan with the melted butter using a pastry brush. Evenly sprinkle 1 teaspoon of the coconut inside each well; set the pan aside.
Roll out the puff pastry on a lightly floured surface to 1/8-inch thickness. (Some brands may not require any rolling.) Prick it all over with a fork, then cut 12 circles using a round cookie cutter the width of the top of the muffin wells (about 2 3/4 inches). Place the puff pastry circles on a baking sheet lined with parchment or waxed paper and refrigerate until needed.
Place the brown sugar, ginger, and salt in a medium bowl, break up any lumps with a spatula or wooden spoon, and stir to combine. Add the pineapple and stir to coat.
Evenly divide the pineapple mixture among the muffin wells. Place a puff pastry circle on top of the pineapple mixture and gently tuck the sides into the well to seal around the pineapple.
Bake until the pastry is puffed and dark golden brown, about 30 to 35 minutes.
Remove the pan from the oven and let cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. While the tartlets are still warm, run a knife around each to loosen it from the well. Place a baking sheet over the muffin pan and carefully invert the muffin pan onto the baking sheet. Gently tap the bottom of each well and then remove the muffin pan. (If some pieces of pineapple and coconut remain inside the wells, just scrape them out and place them on top of the tartlets.) Serve warm.

Chinese dumplings are a staple for Lunar New Year...a favourite in my home.

Ingredients:


• Dumpling Dough*
• 2 cups all purpose flour
• 1 cup boiling water
•Filling:
• 8 ounces celery cabbage (Napa cabbage)
• 3 tsp salt, divided
• 1 pound lean ground pork
• 1/4 cup finely chopped green onions, with tops
• 1 TB white wine
• 1 tsp cornstarch
• 1 tsp sesame oil
• Dash white pepper
•Dipping Sauce:
• 1/4 cup soy sauce
• 1 tsp sesame oil
•Other:
•2 - 4 tablespoons vegetable oil

Preparation:

Cut the cabbage across into thin strips. Mix with 2 teaspoons salt and set aside for 5 minutes. Squeeze out the excess moisture.

In a large bowl, mix the celery cabbage, pork, green onions, wine, cornstarch, the remaining 1 teaaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon sesame oil, and the white pepper.

In a bowl, mix the flour and 1 cup boiling water until a soft dough forms. Knead the dough on a lightly flour surface about 5 minutes, or until smooth.

Divide the dough in half. Shape each half into a roll 12 inches long and cut each roll into 1/2-inch slices.

Roll 1 slice of dough into a 3-inch circle and place 1 tablespoon pork mixture in the center of the circle. Lift up the edges of the circle and pinch 5 pleats up to create a pouch to encase the mixture. Pinch the top together. Repeat with the remaining slices of dough and filling.

Heat a wok or nonstick skillet until very hot. Add 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, tilting the wok to coat the sides. If using a nonstick skillet, add 1/2 tablespoon vegetable oil. Place 12 dumplings in a single layer in the wok and fry 2 minutes, or until the bottoms are golden brown.

Add 1/2 cup water. Cover and cook 6 to 7 minutes, or until the water is absorbed. Repeat with the remaining dumplings.

To make a dipping sauce, in a small bowl, mix the soy sauce with 1 teaspoon sesame oil. Serve with the dumplings.

Lettuce wraps are one of my favourites and something I make several times in a year.

Ingredients:

•1 head iceberg lettuce or romaine lettuce leaves (whichever you prefer)
•.
•Sauce:
•1 tablespoon soy sauce
•2 tablespoons oyster sauce
•1 tablespoon dry sherry
•1 teaspoon sugar
•.
•Remaining Ingredients:
•1 tablespoon Asian sesame oil
•1 slice ginger, minced
•1 garlic clove, minced
•2 green onions, chopped
•1 lb meat from chicken breasts or sliced white chicken meat
•1 red pepper, seeded and diced
•1 can water chestnuts, rinsed in warm running water and chopped
•1 stalk celery, diced
•1 teaspoon cornstarch mixed with 2 tablespoons water

Preparation:

Wash the lettuce, dry, and separate the leaves. Set aside.

Mix together the sauce ingredients. Heat the sesame oil in a non-stick frying pan on high heat. Add the garlic, ginger, and green onions and fry until the garlic and ginger are aromatic. Add the chicken and cook until the chicken is browned. Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside.

Add the red pepper, water chestnuts, and celery to the frying pan. Add the sauce ingredients and cook at medium heat, Give the cornstarch/water mixture a quick restir and add to the sauce, stirring to thicken. Add the chicken back into the wok. Cook for 2 - 3 more minutes, stirring, to heat through and finish cooking the chicken.

Lay out a lettuce leaf and spoon a heaping teaspoon of the chicken and vegetable/sauce mixture into the middle. The lettuce wraps are designed to be eaten "taco-style," with the lettuce/chicken mixture folded into a package. Continue with the remainder of the chicken and lettuce leaves. Serve.

Variations: Try substituting different vegetables, or using one of the many stir-fry sauces that are now on the market in place of the sauce.

It´s just a funny stereotype.
The mother/wife likes to cook, the males are all chubby...

In some cases that stereotype is true..

Mild-overweight here.
Honestly, I have seen only one american burger king-class fatbody here.

Things are going to a better direction since the males have started to get adonis-bodies in increasing numbers.
Women on the other hand are going worse.

Yea. Whitewomen are not what the media says. They think that only the men should stay handsome and ripped.
Drama, drama and drama all the time.
They do not like asianwomen for some reason.

Turkey soup with an Asian twist

Ingredients

* approximately 2 pounds of turkey meat chopped into small spoon sized squares(I use dark meat because my husband likes the white meat for sandwiches)
* 8 celery sticks chopped into tiny peices
* two bunches of spring onions also cut into half inch pieces
* one small piece of ginger chopped into tiny pieces
* 6 crushed garlic cloves
* one package enoki mushrooms
* two packages of vermicelli
* three table spoons of olive oil
* one litre box of chicken broth


Steps

- sautee ginger, spring onions and garlic in a large stock pot
- add turkey to the mix
- add the chicken broth to the sauteed vegetables and turkey
- bring to a boil then add vermicelli
- when vermicelli is cooked add mushrooms and celery.
- reduce heat to lowest level and simmer

If you let it sit for about one hour it is more flavourful than if you serve it as soon as it's cooked.
