Chawanmushi (Japanese Egg Custard)
This savory Japanese egg custard is the perfect comfort food for cold winter nights. Although the dish is traditionally made with gingko nuts and mitsuba, home cooks can toss in any of their favorite ingredients. In this recipe, I added shrimp and kamaboko, a fish cake with a bright pink lining. You can also substitute it with bite-sized pieces of chicken, or even crab meat.

Coconut Flan
This is one of the easiest flan recipes ever. Combine all of the ingredients in a blender, pulse until smooth, pour the custard into ramekins, steam in a water bath in the oven, and chill. The hardest part of this recipe is waiting the two hours for the flan to chill so you can enjoy it.

I love the refreshing taste of mint paired with one of my favorite things (chocolate), and together they are just the perfect combination. — Eva Bakes
