Whole wheat oatmeal cookies
Today I made whole wheat oatmeal cookies according to some recipe I found online. They tasted good and are very healthy, so I wanted to recommend them here. They were also quite easy to make with ingredients easily available in supermarkets in Shenzhen.

Dutch pancakes
A traditional Dutch recipe this time: pancakes! Very simple to make and taste very good. Dutch pancakes are much thinner and lighter than American pancakes. We often put fruit inside such as raisins, apple or banana. It's also possible to combine it with cheese or bacon, but in this recipe I just make the fruit-version.

Tofu with pepper and pork
Tofu with pepper and pork is one of my favorite dishes. It's quite easy to make and has a nice bite to it. It's not too spicy, but has very nice flavors. If you don't watch out, you keep on eating it. Important for this dish is the kind of tofu. We use "five spice tofu" and then the non-smoked version.

Cantonese mushroom bone soup
Cantonese mushroom bone soup is made of a large pig leg bone, chopped in big chunks. The typical Cantonese influence comes from the herbs you need to add. It's a simple recipe (if you can find the Cantonese flavoring) that doesn't require much attention and can be prepared well in advance.

Water bamboo with pork
Water bamboo (also called "wild rice stem") is a typical Chinese vegetable. It looks like regular bamboo shoots, but then narrower. In fact it's really the bottom part of a specially infected rice plant. The outer parts need to be removed, since only the inside white flesh is eaten. In this dish it's sliced and stir fried with pepper and pork.
