What food is so much better during lunch or during dinner?

For me having heavy lunch or brunch is better. And dinner must be light salad, sandwich, wraps.

Switching from coffee to tea in the morning

Hello,
I think you must try black tea or green tea instead of coffee. It is strong and energetic too. and black tea is also good for skin.

What's your daily non-alcoholic beverage of choice?

Green tea or black coffee in the early morning. And the whole day goes on lots of plain water. Sometimes in evening i would like to have lemonade.

Chinese food cooking question...what kind of oil?

I dont have idea about which oil is used in china. But i normally use olive oil as it is odourless and healthy too. And i have heard that chinese people use olive oil, I am not sure but somewhere i have heard about it.

Yummy Cookie recipe

I am sharing a yummy Almond and Apricot Thumbprint Cookies recipe:

Almond and Apricot Thumbprint Cookies are delicious and perfect Christmas cookies to treat home coming guest. Here is the recipe.

INGREDIENTS
• 1 ½ - cups of flour (general-purpose, spooned and also leveled)
• ½ - tea-spoon of baking soda
• ½ - tea-spoon of baking powder
• 1/2 – tea-spoon of coarse salt
• 3/4 - cup of almond butter (smooth)
• 1/2 - cup (equivalent to 1 stick) of butter(un-salted, at room temperature)
• 1/2 - cup of sugar (packed, light-brown in color)
• 1 - egg
• 1 – tea-spoon of vanilla extract (pure)
• 1/3 - cup of sugar (granulated, for rolling purpose)
• 1/2 - cup of jam- apricot

DIRECTIONS

• First heat the oven to 3500 f degrees. Take a medium bowl, take 1. Flour, 2. Baking powder, 3. Baking soda, 4. Salt and whisk together. Take a larger bowl; (with the help of an electric mixer) beat together 5. Almond butter, 6. Butter on medium speed until turns smooth. Add 7. Brown sugar and again beat it until turns fluffy, which might take 3 minutes. Add 8. Egg, 9. Vanilla and beat it again until all ingredients combined well. With the help of mixer on low speed, add slowly but surely flour mixture and again beat it until all combined well (dough will turn slightly crumbly).
• In a small bowl, take sugar (granulated). Now take 1 table-spoon full of dough and roll it into small balls and then gently roll the balls over sugar to add sugar coat. Spread 2 (parchment-lined, rimmed) baking sheets, over it place the balls leaving 1 1/2 inches gap. Bake it until cookies looks puffed up, which might take 8 minutes. From the oven remove sheets and, with the help of spoon, make a dent and create an indentation at the center of all cookies. Again bake it until all well set, which might take 5 to 7 minutes. Allow cookies to cool over the wire racks, for 20 minutes. Stir jam well and then fill 1/2 tea-spoon into all indentation cookies.

Must try this and give suggestions if any...

Frozen fruit question

hello allisonli,
I want to suggest you that if you only want to make smoothie then you can store the pulp of the mangoes in an air tight container in deep freezer and it will last for a long.
