Lately whenever my back is turned, my preschooler, Connie, mixes up some culinary potion under the kitchen table. In just seconds she can confine the entire contents of my baking shelf to just one bowl, leaving a telltale trail of powders and sticky mess across the kitchen floor.

We’ve shared our heart healthy recipes this month with the Chinese New Year celebrations. Since Dim Sum (those delightful bite sized morcels) translated literally means “Touch the Heart”, we’ve made our own little parcels of tasty goodness – steamed
