    Beef Mince Omelette

    This is what my mother used to cook for my sisters and me. She often used thinly sliced off-cut beef or pork, but minced meat is easier for me. Today I cooked Onion and Shiitake with mince, but you can cook whatever you have. When I was a little girl, it was such a fun …

    I am going to share a simple but very versatile ‘Spring Onion & Garlic Sauce’. To make the sauce, you need five ingredients that are Spring Onion, Garlic, Sesame Oil, Salt and White Pepper.

    Egg Fried Rice

    I am writing this recipe for my son and daughter. When they were young, I cooked this Egg-only fried rice quite often because they asked me to cook it. They say it was one of their favourites and they are still fond of it. I always use dried Chopped Chives for this dish, and another …

    How do you use up the leftover egg white? Do you make Angel Food Cake, Macarons or Meringue? There are some recipes on this website such as Almond Bread, Pavlova and ‘Langues de Chat’ Biscuits. I want to introduce a new savoury dish for using up the leftover egg white. It’s this ‘Okonomiyaki’. Simply you …

    Steamed Savoury Custard

    I recently went to a Korean restaurant with my family and my husband and children enjoyed a steamed egg dish as well as BBQ. The steamed egg dish was similar to Japanese ‘Chawanmushi’ (Savoury Custard Soup) but texture was firmer. Surprisingly there was nothing in it and it was just steamed savoury custard. My family …

    Egg & Enoki Soup

    Easter holidays are gone and now it is getting cold in Melbourne. Hot soup is appreciated for dinner. Egg Soup is everyone’s favourite.

    Just Spinach & Eggs

    My very first cooking class was in the fifth grade. We cooked ‘Sautéed Spinach’ and ‘Boiled Eggs’. ‘Scrambled Eggs’ is actually easier than ‘Boiled Eggs’. To keep the colour of the scrambled eggs, cook Eggs and Spinach separately. After they are combined gently and placed on a plate, drizzle the sauce over instead of mixing …

  • Chicken Donburi (Rice Bowl) Egg

    Oyako Don

    ‘Oyako’ means ‘Parent and Child’. In this recipe, Chicken and Eggs are used, thus this dish is called ‘Oyako Don’. This is one of the dishes that I cook most often. Sometimes I cook this with Tofu instead of Chicken. Tofu and Eggs can’t be called ‘Oyako’ or ‘Parent and Child’, though it is equally …

The memory inspired me to create this gratin. A very simple, yet yummy and nutritious dish for a family. Makes 4 Servings Ingredients Spinach 1 bunch …

    ‘Pavlova’ is a meringue dessert with crispy crust and soft inside, topped with whipped cream and fresh fruit.

The recipe is simple and it …

    Salmon Sprinkles

    Not only my children (when they were young) but most Japanese children love savoury rice sprinkles called ‘Furikake’. There are loads of ‘Furikake’ products available but I never know what is in them. Home-made savoury sprinkles are easy to make and we can know exactly what is in them. I used to make this ‘Salmon …

    Just Cabbage & Eggs

    On the other day, my husband bought a huge carton of 3 dozens of eggs at a local market. That day I also bought 1 carton of eggs being unaware there was 1 carton of eggs in the fridge. So we ended up having 60 eggs! I cooked this dish to use up the eggs. …

    Onsen Tamago

    Onsen Tamago is a traditional Japanese low temperature egg which is originally slow-cooked in the water of ‘Onsen’ hot springs. What is ‘OnsenTamago’ (Wikipedia) I cook ‘Onsen Tamago’ in the microwave. The result is similar to ‘Poached Egg’ but the yolk is cooked more than white just like ‘Onsen Tamago’. The best thing of this …
