Winter Melon Meatball Soup
I am from Japan and we have different ways of cooking Winter Melons. However, being in the US, I decided to try this Chinese version. I changed the recipe slightly by substituting the cilantro with minced green onion, omitted sugar from both the meat balls and the soup, and omitted garlic from meat balls. I also added Chinese soup bouillon (do not use American soup stock because they use different spices) and sake in the soup to add more taste, added sliced fresh Shiitake and frozen taro potatoes (satoimo in Japanese) in the soup. The result was delicious. My son who does not usually like vegetables (if Winter Melon is considered a vegetable) ate two servings. I boiled the cut Winter Melon and the frozen taro potatoes for 10 - 15 minutes and drained the water before putting them in the soup stock because I like softer melon and potatoes. I will definitely make this soup again.

Blueberry Pie
I just had rave reviews from my colleagues for my blueberry pie. It was my first time to bake blueberry pies and the pies were good. It was very easy, too. The only thing was one of them got over-baked when I baked it for 50 minutes as specified in the recipe. I have a convection oven. I baked the other one for 40 minutes which seemed to be adequate. So if you have a convection oven, you may want to watch your pie closely around after 40 minutes.

Christmas Eve Beef Stew
It was OK. Nothing spectacular. I like barley so I added too much and it sucked all the liquid from the stew. That was probably why it was OK.
