Really Addictive Candied Nuts For Christmas

We finally watched Frozen I, all thanks to the little one. He got his fix of the movie that came out six years ago (I didn’t realise it was so long ago!!) in Taiwan, in the hotel at Jiantan in Taipei because of his Netflix luck and both adults got to watch it as well, willingly or not. It was actually quite a nice movie I must say, quite humorous, with very interesting characters and really catchy songs. Really really catchy. I got hooked on to them too!

Grüne Soße mit Eier und Kartoffeln (Frankfurt Style Egg & Potato Salad)

The German grüne Soße (literally ‘green sauce’) is commonly found in the Hesse state of Germany, including Frankfurt am Main and Kassel. While the guy was doing his stint in Frankfurt back in 2011, we’ve had quite many opportunities to try out this dish, though I must say it did come across as a very strange dish back then because of its name and colour.

Peranakan Prawn & Coconut Rice Roll (Pulut Rempah Udang)

This is a weekend attempt at a recipe that would help to use up my glutinous rice at home. It’s a Peranakan or Nyonya dish called ‘Pulut Rempah Udang‘ which translates to glutinous rice with shrimp. Basically, it is a rice dumpling wrapped up in banana leaves, with a filling that is made up of fresh shrimp, dried shrimp and/or a spicy paste, depending on one’s preference.
