The recipe I chose is the recipe of Bing Tanghulu, a traditional Chinese treat similar to British toffee apples. It is made by hawthorns with rock sugar. I chose to illustrate a recipe for this food because it reminds me of my childhood in the winter in China. I remember begging my mom to buy one for me when I was little, and I would be happy for the whole day if I got one. I believe all people from Northern China have similar memory as I have since it is one of the most popular treats in the winter. The recipe is very simple, the only ingredients it needs are hawthorns or whatever kinds of fruits you like (my favorite is strawberry), rock sugar and bamboo sticks.
One of the dishes that reminds me of home is Lumpia Shanghai. It's a Chinese-Filipino fried spring roll that is often served at get-togethers. Ever since I was little, my mom and I would sit around the kitchen table and wrap them together.

Vegetables are gorgeous and they need more appreciation of their beauty (and health benefits). Vegetable platter is a way to add more beneficial food to your diet with fun and ease. It’s so simple and in the same time not boring - you can choose veggies you like, you can pick a dip to accompany, you can eat it on its own or serve as a garnish. So I want to celebrate this magical dish!
