Blueberry Pie.
The pie filling is easy.  The most difficult is the pastry.  But can use readymade pastry sheet.  I made my own pastry sheet.  Not as professional , but it came out good.

This post was edited by cestmoi at 2012-4-14 09:42

That blueberry pie looks goooood

Umm is it my taste buds or what? Chinese white pepper seems spicier (hotter) but less araomatic than black pepper fresh from my grinder?
Let the dice fly high

        .        Soak mung bean noodle in warm water for 20 minutes. Drain and set aside.
        .        Heat canola oil in a cast iron skillet over high heat. Lightly coat the crabs with corn starch and pan fry in skillet. Remove from skillet when they are halfway cooked (about 6 minutes) and set aside.
        .        Using the remaining oil left in the pan, add garlic, ginger and onion. Stir fry until fragrant. Then add cilantro stems and leeks. 
        .        Add in noodles.
        .        Stir in oyster sauce, sugar and light soy sauce.
        .        Arrange half-cooked crabs on top of the noodles. Place two crab shells on top. Pour in chicken stock. Cover. Let steam for 6~8 minutes over low heat or until all crab shells turn red (indicating the crabs are cooked through).

Only the 2 pieces of crabs are a bit expensive, weighing around 400 grams each which is approximately RMB75  (converted) per kilo.   It is still very economical to cook this at home as compared to if I'm gonna eat it in an upscale Chinese restaurant.
It really tastes delicious.
And one more thing, it's more relaxing to eat crabs in the comforts of one's one dining room.

If crab is not available, you can substitute with prawns. {:soso_e100:}
