Cookbook Countdown #13: SV's Crispy 5spice chicken with crunchy vegetable noodles

I finally discovered that there are difference in results if you
use tapioca flour versus rice flour versus corn flour
Pretty tasty!
chicken fillet cut into strips, added to beaten egg white;
rice flour mixed with 5spice powder, salt and pepper
chopped garlic, red chili strips, carrots, red bell pepper,
Chinese broccoli and egg noodles
Yumms!

Cookbook Countdown #13: SV's Cabbage, meatballs and noodle broth

Here is my adaptation of:
Spiced meatballs, noodles and vegetables cooked slowly in a rich broth!
I used round green cabbage in place of Chinese cabbage,
fresh shiitake instead of dried, no enokitake mushrooms - cos I had none!
Made and used my homemade vegetable stock instead of beef.
Used Vietnamese rice noodles instead of mung bean noodles.
Hand mixed the meatball mixture instead of using a food processor
Nice but too much work!

Cookbook Countdown #13: CPC ~ Nyonya Cheng Tng

According to the book, Nyonya cheng tng does not exist
in Peranakan culinary vocabulary, (Joyce - is this true?)
This sweet soup has Chinese roots and traditionally consisted of
a rich combination of ingredients - this is a family's loose
adaptation of the popular Chinse dessert.
***
I used gingko nuts, lily bulbs and dried longans
with rock sugar, pandan leaves and water
