Chinese New Year is a time to celebrate the beginning of a new lunar new year. Truth be told, it is the food that gets me excited! I especially look forward to the yearly reunion dinner where family members would all gather on New Year’s Eve and enjoy a sumptuous feast. Symbolic ingredients like abalone, fish, chicken, noodles will always make their appearance on the dining table. Whatever you decide to cook, Chinese New Year is a time to show generosity, abundance and indulgence during this period, so be sure to prepare plentiful.

Few years ago, I’ve shared a popular Taiwanese staple dish - Lu Rou Fan (Braised Pork Rice). I can’t remember how many times I’ve made this dish and every time, it never fails to hit the spot. Recently, I’ve been making Lu Rou Fan with the all-in-one multi cooker I’ve acquired. I’m loving the sauté and sauce thickening functions. Most traditional pressure cookers do not come with these functions hence, I find myself using the multi cooker more these days. Tough cuts of meat can be tenderized in minutes, it is perfect for stews, soups and rice.

This year, instead of baking the traditional fruit cake or log cake for Christmas, I’m going to go with a stunning Red Velvet Bundt Cake with Cream Cheese Glaze. The name might sound a mouthful, but honestly, it is really not that complicated to make.

It’s been raining quite a bit these days. There’s nothing better to perk up my mood by having some chocolate! To be honest, I’ve been struggling to come up with a perfect name for this recipe. I have to do justice to this insanely luscious and decadent chocolate dessert. Think of it as a lovechild between chocolate mousse and molten lava cake. In the end, I went with Crazy Fudgy Dark Chocolate Mini Cake.

Six years ago, I’ve shared my Balinese Ikan Bakar recipe using a grill pan. With the invention of smart kitchen appliance like air fryer, you could cook almost any type of food with it. Air fryer is essentially a small convection oven that circulates hot air at high speed (source: Wikipedia) These days, I’ve been heavily relying on my air fryer to make meals.

When it comes to baking, there are certain rules we need to abide to in order for the final product to turn out right. There are definitely times when I’ve encountered recipes that require tons of steps and techniques that beginner bakers might not be familiar with. This Easy Moist Apple Cake is the complete opposite. Not only is it easy to put together, it is so forgiving that there is really little chance for failure. The end product is a wonderfully moist buttery cake with generous mouthful of chunky apples.

Blueberries are not only great on pancakes, toast and in muffins, you could also use them to spice up savory dishes. Blueberries, with their sweet yet discreet flavor is perfect to mix in salads or as a sauce. The sweet and salty combination will definitely liven up your meals. We are huge fans of homemade salsa but instead of using fresh tomatoes (Which is usually the default choice), I’ve decided to make it with fresh blueberries! This simple yet delicious homemade blueberry salsa makes a perfect topping for your favorite tacos, nachos and of course this crispy potato patty! Store leftover salsa in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

My love for blueberries has definitely shined throughout this entire blog ever since I’ve started my Bear Naked Food journey. And today, I’m sharing with you another deeply comforting and delicious recipe – Easy Baked Blueberry Crumble. Delicious and versatile, you could serve it warm or cold. We simply love to pair it with a scoop (or two if we are in an indulging mood!) of vanilla ice-cream to make it a perfect dessert.
