Blueberry White Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chinese New Year (CNY) is just around the corner and many Chinese households are busying and getting ready for the most important celebration and holiday of the year. House spring cleaning and decoration, personal grooming, shopping for CNY clothing and goodies, stocking up for the reunion dinner etc. It's getting all so exciting!

One of the yearly CNY preparations in this household is the baking of See's Cookies for families and friends. We need about 50 containers of cookies for self consumption and giveaways. As we both have our day jobs, wife and I would start baking these goodies every night after putting the kids to bed for 2 weeks leading up to the Lunar new year.

Golden Salted Egg Pumpkin Prawns

We used to order this pumpkin prawn in claypot dish every time we visited Bali Seafood restaurant in Gillman Village many years ago before they ceased operation. The kids, especially Audrey, fell in love with the dish and has been requesting me to cook her this dish every year for her birthday.

Last week was her 9th birthday and again she requested for this but I gave the dish a slight twist by adding salted egg yolk. 

The sweetness from the pumpkin balances the unique savoury aroma from the salted egg yolk. Curry leaves and chilli padi give the dish the extra kick!
