Stylish Blogger Award & Happy Chinese New Year Wishes

This special award has been forwarded to kitchen flavours by the lovely Melynda of Mom's Sunday Cafe.

In accepting this award, the following applies:

  1. Post linking back to the person that gave you the award.
  2. Share 7 random things about yourself.
  3. Award 15 recently discovered bloggers
  4. Drop them a note, and tell them about it!

Here goes :

Thank you, Melynda of Mom's Sunday Cafe, for this lovely award and your sweet words. Some of you may know Melynda, and some maybe not, if you have not been to Mom's Sunday Cafe, then drop by her lovely site, you will be glad you did. Melynda has a way with words, she has a style of writing that will leave a smile or two, and sometimes it will linger in your mind even long after you're read it!  Her stories and anecdotes about her family and those around her are a joy to read. And of course, she has a tremendous talent in the kitchen! Drop by her blog and see all the delicious food and treats that her family enjoys. Thank you, Melynda. 

Seven things about myself !
  1. I have a habit of reducing sugar in most dessert or cakes recipes which I think that some of you may noticed! I do not like stuffs that are overly sweet!
  2. I always wished that cheeses are more affordable here! 
  3. I try to restraint myself from buying more cookbooks! But sometimes, when I'm at the bookstore, I can't help it! Perhaps I should attend a "Cookbookshopoholic Anonymous"! He! He! I'm not that bad actually! But then, "Baking With Dorie Greenspan" is on sale now, at a very low price... hmmm.... !!!!
  4. I'm still waiting for Book 4 on the Eragon series, though, by the time when they do publish it, I've got to start all over from Book 1! Memory is not as good as it used to be! Signs of getting old? Nah.......!
  5. Love to visit all your fantastic sites! There are many recipes that I have bookmarked, goodness knows when I'll be able to make these. Time and ingredients are mostly the main "obstacles"! 
  6. Love spicy food, the spicier the yummier! I eat chili almost everyday, either in a spicy dish or as an accompaniment! 
  7. I failed miserably at growing my own chili plants! They never survived after the first flowers! Perhaps they saw a 'hungry chili eater' who is always "staring" at them, and that gave them a scare! But I'm still trying!

The 15 recently discovered bloggers are as follow, most of them are recent, some not, they are all lovely blogs: 

Please drop by and say hello to these lovely blogs. Each of them have something different and special to offer,  with mouth-watering delicious yummies and beautiful photos.  Thank you!

I would like to wish all my Chinese foodie friends, family and readers,
