Locrio De Pollo, or Dominican Chicken and Rice, is a dish that my mother and her side of the family always make whenever people come to visit. Not only is it a staple for traditional Dominican families, especially during the holidays, but it's certainly a staple for us because when we see that huge metal pot on the stove that means family and full bellies. Even though I have it all the time, I still love it a much as the very first time my grandmother made it for me (but that's also because I can never get it exactly like hers so).

My mom cooked jeonbokjuk (abalone porridge) when I was sick, as it was healthy and easy to digest. As a big fan of all kinds of porridge and soup, I have tried many. Still, jeonbokjuk is the best. It is very savory, delicious, and also nutritious.
I hope you will try this recipe to warm your body and heart with a bowl of jeonbokjuk.

All three of my peanut butter recipes are originally from my mom. I tested them in my own kitchen before illustrating them to make sure I include my own variation to it along with all the tips and tricks. My illustration principle is that it helps make Chinese cooking less intimidating and more like child's play. Plus, of course it has to be pretty too. This particular recipe is one of the most requested desserts for potluck. And believe it or not, it is a traditional Chinese dessert, we just don't call it peanut butter in the past, but "mushy peanut". :) There is also a variation that serves the rice balls in a light syrup or simply in the water that cooks the rice balls. But I prefer this as it's easier to eat and last a few days in the fridge.
Patoleo are traditionally prepared in the western coast of India, on the day of Naag Panchami ( worship of snakes ). These steamed cakes are made in turmeric leaves because of they impart a distinct smell and flavour to the sweet.
