Men That Cooks The Best Looking Fried Eggs

Fried eggs sounds like one simple recipe, but it is not the case to me. When everytime I cook the fried eggs, the egg never got the desirable shape that I wanted it to be. So it's no that easy at all.

My dad used to cook fried eggs for me in the morning when I was living in the home with him, I remember the taste, and the great shape. But now no one cookes them for me, and time is so limited to do such a thing in the morning. He is the men that cooks the best looking fried eggs in the world --:)
In fact, I find the fried eggs the most tasty among all the eggs recipe, (I mean only use eggs in the dish). Add a little onion, I would be perfect.
I think I have found the reason why I always encounter failure. It just that I was not using a flat pan, but rather using the tipical chinese pan. My dad, he was also using the pan just like me, but he got good skills, which is never going to comanded by me andyway after so many failure.

I wish someday I could make a great looking fried eggs that with the very tender inner side.

How is Your Cooking Knife Skill Goes

Knives are the most important items in your tool kit. A chef can accomplish a number of tasks quickly and efficiently with a good, sharp knife. High quality knives are expensive, but will last for many years with proper care.

It is because high quality knives obtain and keep an extremely sharp edge, one capable of slicing off a good part of a finger in a split second, that knife skills are a critical part of a cook's training. If you are going to spend a lot of time preparing food, acquiring superior knife skills for gourmet cooking is the single most important thing you need to do.
Tips for Buying a Chef's Knife
Buy the best quality knife that you can afford.
Make sure there are no gaps at the joint where the blade and handle meet.
Sizes range from 6- to 12-inch blades, but an 8-inch blade is standard.
The blade should curve toward the tip to allow a rocking motion.
A hefty bolster (the metal part between the blade and the handle) will help balance the knife and give you more control.
The tang (metal extending into the handle) should extend to the butt of the knife handle.
There is no rule on how heavy the knife should be. Some people like a weighty knife while others like a lighter one. It’s important to hold the knife before you buy to make sure it feels right for you.

Heat(Fire) Control in Chinese Cooking

The fire control ability is what makes your a plain cooker or a professioanl cooker. Chinese cuisine keeps the priority focus on fire and you can notice that when a great cook is do the frying, the fire would even jump so high to reach the food, which is so impossible to happen in our own kithen. Besides, we don't have the strength to lift the heavey pot up and then shake it up and down.

No alone the frying, the other way of cooking such as boiling is also a matter of taking control of the fire. The general tips for boiling is that, you need to use big fire to boil it up, than use little and steady fire to boil it flavor out. Simple yet full of wisdom.

As so many Chinese, especially Cantonese, dishes depend on super-fast stir-frying and instantaneous heat control, a gas cooker is undoubtedly the best equipment. Use of an electric cooker necessitates a lot of practice in gauging when to adjust the heat level, and an electric place cannot caress a round-bottomed wok in the way that gas flames can. Yet, with practice, an electric cooker and flat-bottomed frying pan can turn out very passable Chinese dishes. If possible, have a range with at least two rings.

How I Like Baked Potato

Baked Potato, it may be included in the risky food range since it's baked, which is not considered as a healthy way of cooking in most cases.

Risky food is the kind of food that is tasty enough to drive out your previous bad thoughts about them in an instance. Baked potato is just like this. Because you know it will make you fat, it contains too much oil and bad stuff, but when you taste it, you can't drop it.

I acturally don't think baked potato is such an unhealthy food like other people thought. If baked in a proper way, and put less oil and salt, it maybe good anyway, since potato itself is a terrific food that has a lot of benifits.

There is once a true story about a villiage, where people all live long life, they share the same habit as eating potatos eveyday. There is various way of cooking potatos, the most delicious one I think is baking it. Chinese people often like to fry it, but the slicing process is too hard and time taking.

The most healthy way is to use it into making soup, it may keep the nutrition well in the best state.

How to Keep Your Egg as Fresh as Possible

Egg is an important friend in our kitchen. We often buy a dozen of them and keep them randomly in the fridge. Do you stop a second and carefully place them in order to keep the fresh for a longer time or just never spare any time to consider those details in life only to find some of them been not that fresh when eating.

Keeping eggs fresh is an important part of maintaining their taste and nutritional value. Eating fresh eggs can keep you healthy and provide you with essential daily nutrients. Follow these tips to ensure a fresh egg at your next breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Top one: keep the bigger header of the egg to the down side. That's the best way to place an egg.

Ensure that the eggs in the carton do not have any cracked shells. Check the carton for any breaks, too. Whole cartons help protect eggs from absorbing unwanted smells or tastes from surrounding food. Consider replacing the carton if big cracks or tears are present.

Check your refrigerator's temperature. Eggs need to be stored at 40 degrees F or 4 degrees C or lower to retain freshness.

Understanding Sichuan Food Culture - Pepper Part

In general, Sichuan cooks specialize in chilies and hot peppers and Sichuan dish is famous for aromatic and spicy sauces.

You may ask, what so special about spicy pepper, the best it can do is just make you sick? And yes, you are correct. However, Sichuan pepper does not grow with the intensity after you eat it (I cannot say the same with Atomic favor at Wing Stop restaurant).

What it does is gives you a burning or tingling sensation when it touches your lips. It could scare you at first (or worst pee your pant), but shortly after that the pepper will leaves with a numbness feeling.
If the hot is unbearable to you, eat something sweet to cool it down. Cake can be a perfect solution.

Characterized by its spicy and pungent flavors, Sichuan cuisine, with a myriad of tastes, emphasizes the use of chili. Pepper and prickly ash are always in accompaniment, producing the typical exciting tastes. Garlic, ginger and fermented soybean are also used in the cooking process. Wild vegetables and meats such as are often chosen as ingredients, while frying, frying without oil, pickling and braising are used as basic cooking techniques.

Ginger is Such a Amazing Food

Ginger is my everyday friend, ans is one of the basic item that you can't miss in your kitchen. Nearly every food recipe needs ginger.

Nutritional Effects of ginger: the main ingredients of pungent taste in ginger include zingerone, ginger alcohol and ginger hydroxybenzene which are volatile to some extend. Therefore, eating garlic can strengthen and accelerate blood circulation, stimulate the secretion of gastric juices, assist digestion and protect stomach. Ginger also can stimulate secretion of sweat, warm innards and stop vomit. To drink some ginger soup when catching cold can play a very good role of treatment. I tried Ginger Soup for Fighting Flu and it really works.

In traditional Chinese medical sense, eat more ginger can do more helpful benifits to your health.Using GingerFor a cup of fresh ginger tea, one should steep about five or six thin slices of ginger root. A teaspoonful of the dried root may be used in a pint of hot water. Cover and let steep for 30 minutes. Herbalists have recommended hot dried ginger root tea, in wineglassful doses every couple of hours, to help allay symptoms at the onset of a cold, relieve mild nausea or mild diarrhea. Ginger tincture (in which the root is soaked in a menstruum of alcohol and water), sometimes labeled as "drops" or "extracts," are available in health and natural food stores.

Herbalists recommend ten to twenty drops of ginger tincture in a little water with meals to counteract indigestion or help fight early symptoms of cold or flu. Some people, however, may not be able to tolerate the burning sensation caused in the stomach. Capsulated dried ginger root products, and capsulated products with standardized amounts of gingerol are also widely available. Read the product label for dosage and use information.

Ginger Soup for Fighting Flu

Spring is a flu season with temprature in such a unstable state. I was hit by flu this past weekend. I had a pretty heavy head until now, and my nose nearly going nuts. To give it specific, I got a fever that is 38.6, not very high but is enough for me.

So I was heard that if there is not anything wrong and is just a pure fever, then we should not always go to the hospital and take the antibiotic, that's what the doctor tipically tells you to do. In fact antibiotic is not very good for health and totally unnecessary in some cases, but we now can seldom meet any doctors that really cares for you.

So we need to take care of ourselves. I google how would I do to make a little better. So I find a great one. Giner soup with a little red sugar in it. Pefect soup for fighting flu because it can helps you to drain your sweat out, that's the key point when we need to cure the fever due to catching cold.

It's extremly impotant to remember that ginger soup is for cold type fever only, not for heat type fever, most happen in summer. That's two totally different thing.

My Special Hobby Towards Eating

I like girls with slim body, but eat with big mouth, never pretend to be full when just after a few chewings, because eating by itself is a great enjoyment that you would be regret to be missed.

If I was sitting near a man with good eating manner that improve people's appetite, then I would feel my food in front of me be even more tasty. ~(╯▽╰)

I like the men who really into slowly chewings, and sedomly ask for soup or water when taking in the food. Every food must go though 30 chewings after went to the stomach, one lunch unusally take 30 minutes or more. That man would not hurrish you when you are still in the eating.

I like the men who cherich every little rice, don't ever squandered his money in eating. He would leave no waster food in a dining room. I like the man who don't have a very big stomach, but could really last long.
One's eating manner would reflect his or her temperament, hobby and his way of people skill. One meal to get know one man, then deciding its for the second or for a lifetime friend.

I wish I'm the pefect girl to my own satisfaction.

Raw Carrots vs Cooked Carrots - Choose The Latter

Young ladies who wants to keep fit would virturally eat vegetables as their everyday food, and carrots is a common one to take as the recipe choice.

Women often eat raw carrots instead of cooked ones, time passed, and it turns out raw carrots may do harm to their health. The carrots contains many knowlege that we would like to learn to better assorb their norish.

Do not overdose - your skin will turn yellow!

- It's called Carotenemia! Consume too many carrots or drink too much juice and your skin, mostly the hands, will turn yellowish-orange. There are two possible reasons why your skin turns orange. Either your body is unable to process all the carotene properly in the carrot juice you are drinking , or your liver is toxic. Either way, the colour shows up in your skin. If you are having difficulty processing carotene: You may be drinking too much carrot juice at once. Your body can't really assimilate more than 8-10 oz. of carrot juice at one time (taken on an empty stomach).

Cooking also increases antioxidant power

High temperature is usually not the best thing for many of the sensitive compounds that are contained in our food and new research from the University of Arkansas indicates that for carrots, at least, cooking may in fact increase their goodness. Carrots are one of the best sources of carotene which is a strong antioxidant. But carrots also contain other phenolic compounds that are antioxidants. Many people do not realise that numerous phenolic compounds are located in the skin of fruit and vegetables, many of which are removed by peeling prior to processing.

Natural Cereals and Whole Grain

Cereal and whole grains contain more benifits than we could think about. It's a pity that morden people now skip these food in our main diet, sedom eating them, for the alternative, we eat too much refined rice which may not supplement enough mineral and nutrient our body needs.

Consume whole foods, not supplements. Strong evidence suggests that people who have high blood levels of certain nutrients—selenium, beta-carotene, vitamins C and E—age much better and have a slower rate of cognitive decline. Unfortunately, there's no evidence that taking pills with these nutrients provides those antiaging benefits. "There are more than 200 different carotenoids and 200 different flavonoids in a single tomato," points out Ferrucci, "and these chemicals can all have complex interactions that foster health beyond the single nutrients we know about like lycopene or vitamin C." Avoid nutrient-lacking white foods (breads, flour, sugar) and go for all those colorful fruits and vegetables and dark whole-grain breads and cereals with their host of hidden nutrients.

Don't take those so-called pills for granted. They are just eating your money and your trust. Turn to natrual cereals and whole grains, it will improve your health if you persist.

Try to Add More Green Vegetables in Your Breakfast

Is your breakfast contain too much oily stuff or fat, which won't do any good to your morning work spirit. Never skip green vegetables, expecially in the morning.

Green vegetables such as cabbage, celery, they can be added into porriage to make it more delicious and yet more nutrient too. Good idea and recipe for a simple breakfast. There it is, a traditional chinese way of porridge.

When I was growing up, nearly every night my family ate dinner together. No matter what else was for dinner, there was always a green vegetable. On the rare occasion that we'd have breakfast for dinner, my mom would serve apple slices and tell us to pretend that they were green (cauliflower and all squashes counted as green). Because of this early conditioning, I have a very hard time feeling like my dinner experience has been complete if there wasn't a green vegetable on my plate.

Don't Eat Too Much Before Sleep

I'm at the moment quite regret my night snack action last night. My stomach feel very tired and unseasy right now. It's really not a good idea to eat again in the night after 11 clock.

My boyfriend and I went out to eat the fried bullfrog last night. For this late only because it may got the price cut half during the night time. But it turns out the saved money could not compensate for the suffernig my stomach now undergoing. And after I eat too much oily frog at night, I left so little time to give the stomach to consume them and digest well by going to sleep after a short bath.

So when I get up the next morning, I got a vomit and don't have any appetite. I think I would never go out to eat at nightm, no matter how tasty or how cheap it is. It hurt my health.

Pure and Wild Mushroom Soup

My kitchen often features mushroom food. As is known to all, mushroom is considered as the top healthy food. Traditional Chinese way of mushroom soup is welcomed by people from home and abroad and it obtained a patent for the discovery of the 21th Century healthy food in the world.

Flavour and health, all in one, so what are you waiting for, trying learning the mushroom recipe now.

I've often prepared this soup simply with cremini mushrooms. But, to tell the truth, I enjoy it the most when I use a variety of "wild" mushrooms (which are now cultivated), such as cremini, shiitake, chanterelle, and oyster, each offering its unique flavor and texture. At the supermarket, select the freshest-looking mushrooms to create your own signature combination.

Mushroom hotpot which is crispy, mellow, fresh and slippery and moreover, its effect is the same as medicine. Many species of mushrooms and fungi used in folk medicine for thousands of years are being studied by researchers. Maitake, shiittake, chaga and reishi are prominent among those being looked at for their potential anti-cancer, anti-viral, or immunity-enhancing properties. Psilocybin, originally an extract of certain psychedelic mushrooms, is being studied for its ability to help people suffering from mental illness, such as obsessive-compulsive disorder.

Taking Cooking as a Way of Relax

Many housewives may thought cooking as a tedious routine that they have to do. While I don't think so, I take it as a good way of relax, preparing food, investigating recipe, enjoying the efforts by yourself. Why not?

Maybe it's just different attitudes. For those housewives who needs to figure out what to eat everyday, cooking surely couldn't be a fun thing. In fact, I'm suggesting not cooking everyday, just once in a while, for example, every weekend when you have time, or the other days to satisfy your stomach.

Cooking so frequently would hurt its fun, just like working everyday, not any interest. So skip it a day or too, relax outside for the sake of making the cooking more fun the next time. A flexitble time schedule is needed to keep the fun with it.

Be a lady who loves cooking and cookes well, then your husband would love you more, since there is an old saying as: keep a man, you should keep his stomach first. " Very to the point.

Understanding Sichuan Food Culture - Geography Part

To understand the lavishness of Sichuan food, you first have to understand Sichuan's geography. About three-fourths of the province is mountains, and the mountains that divide the lower elevations to the east and the Tibetan plateau to the west hold the richest temperate ecological habitats on earth.

It is that abundance of species that has bequeathed Sichuan's food with copious variety. I reckon that Sichuan's cuisine makes use of more ingredients than any other cuisine in the world; I also think that the profusion of tastes and textures is the most extensive in the world.

Generally speaking, Sichuan dishes are also oily and spicy. Representative of this is Spiced Fish Stew. Sometimes sauces are submerged in oil and this is due to a history of poverty. According to local wisdom, the deprived locals couldn't afford meats and as a result oil became a substitute for meats—that way, the oil gave vegetable dishes a rich texture and consistency, making up for absence of meat. This then led to another development: the imbibing of tea.
Many locals carry a tea thermos everywhere they go, taking gulps every few minutes, apparently out of necessity—the tea is supposed to neutralize the oily density of the food. (Now people can afford meats, and this, coupled with increasing health consciousness, is leading people to use less oil—although this is relative, as people who tell you they have used little oil in a dish would still have used half a cup.)

Lets go on in the next post.

Crazy in Love with Spiced Fish Stew

Spiced fish stew, in strict sense, is originted from Sichuan cruisine, but now it's really been a fashion trend in our city here to eat spiced fish stew. Its flavour is a bit spicy and not so mild, but for the sake of it's great smell and taste, just putting those healthy related talks beside me for a second, because I want to taste happiness with the smoothy fish slices.

My way of cooking:

1, Rinse the fish fillets and cut each into 3 pieces. Dry the fish well with a clean kitchen cloth. Combine the fish with the marinade in a large bowl and set aside for about 30 minutes.

2, Prepare the salad base in a bowl.Heat up some oil in a wok or heavy skillet and slowly stir in the marinated fish. Cook until fish just starts to turn white, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.Pour off the frying oil, leaving about 2 tablespoons in the pan. Add in hot bean sauce and stir until fragrant.

3, Stir in ginger, garlic, half scallion sections, chilli flakes, half of each Sichuan peppercorns and dried chilli. Stir over the medium heat until their fragrance is fully released. Drizzle in rice wine and light soya sauce. Continue stirring. Pour in stock, adjusting the heat to high, and bring to a boil. Season it with pepper, salt, chicken powder and white sugar. Return fish to the skillet and cook for about 3 minutes.

4, Turn off the heat and pour the fish stew into the prepared bowl with salad.Heat up 200 grams of oil in another pan. Add in another half peppercorns and dried chilli. Stir till fragrant over the slow heat. Pour over the fish and garnish with the curled, drained spring onions or coriander leaves.

Cooking Tips:
1. Please do not eat the dry chili pepper and flower pepper. It is just for the flavor. 2. Serving with a bowl of white rice can reduce the spicy for you if this dish is so spicy for you.

Orange Juice To Prevent Sun Damage to Face

With nice and brigh colors, orange juice is so wildy loved and fun to make.

Orange juice is supposed to be good if you have a sore throat. It helps it get better (so they say). Some fast facts about the refreshing drink for all those juice fans out there:

-Also known simply as "OJ"
-Even more refreshing with crushed ice and Sprite
-High in vitamin C

My Mom used to do it in the summertime to erase and prevent sun damage, but I feel it can be used in winter time, too, to revive glow and lightly exfoliate a dreary winter skin.

The recipe is simple: an orange juice. That.'s right. Plain orange juice. My Mom rubbed half the orange or half the tangerine (or clementine, or even satsuma) all over her face, avoiding the eye area.

And it makes perfect sense: orange juice contains alpha hydroxy acids, and just the right type for your skin. Even the most fragile skins are safe with most fruit juices, apart from lemon and lime. Still, you can use them diluted.

Eat Bullfrogs Contains Anti-ageing Substance

A bullfrogWhile it only turns into a handsome prince in fairy tales, but it may face a new life in the human world, since it is researched to have contain anti-ageing substance that humans thirst for very much.

The striking good news was decared by South Korea life scientists. No wonder since Korean people are so much delicated to the body and face care, face reconstruction field, so the achievement should be theirs. The homely bullfrog may harbour a valuable anti-ageing substance for humans, South Korean researchers say.A team led by Professor Kim Se-kwon of Pukyong University in Busan says it isolated a peptide with antioxidant properties from bullfrog skin.

Because of the properties, the material is useful in removing free radicals -- molecules that hasten the ageing process of human cells.Alpha-tocopherol, also known as Vitamin E, is traditionally considered as the most active antioxidant in humans and widely used in medicines and health supplements.But its price keeps rising because of surging world demand."The new substance can provide an economic alternative to tocopherol," Kim told reporters Tuesday, referring to another antioxidant.

The team's discovery was published by Bioresource Technology, an international journal, last year."Because it is water-soluble, the substance may be consumed in much more diverse ways than the oil-soluble tocopherol. You may put it in soft drinks, for example," he said.The newly found material is also 10 percent more efficient than tocopherol in curbing oxidisation, he added.Definitely it's a good news for humans, but I was unclear about whether it's great news for the bullfrogs themselves. They will be enter into our dinning table more often now.
