    Hi Maria,

    This is one dish that I can never do successfully. I have tried it so many times with other recipes in the past and wasted so many eggs. I am going to try one more time using your recipe, and I I fail again, I will call it a day.

    And by the way, i wonder if you could teach me how to cook the sweetened steam egg (with ginger). I have tried it but I just can’t achieve the smooth texture. My mom used to cook that for me when I was a kid. I miss it so much and in turn would also love to cook it for my mom now.

    Thanks and have a great Sunday.
