    ‘Satoimo’ with Garlic, Butter & Soy Sauce

    Garlic, Butter & Soy Sauce is a great combination that makes a delicious sauce. Today I cooked Frozen ‘Satoimo’ (Taro) in this sauce with Chilli.

    Hash Brown Potatoes & Chickpeas

    I know Hash Browns are not very good for my health, but I love them. This is my attempt to make the ‘not-healthy’ food into ‘less-unhealthy’ food. I added Chickpeas to Hash Browns.

    Quick & Cheesy Broccoli Potato

    I saw a lovely looking dish of roasted Broccoli and Potatoes that were mixed with Garlic and Anchovy. Sounds really good, doesn’t it? But, I didn’t want to use the oven. If it is just Broccoli, I would cook it in a frying pan. But I needed to cook Potatoes as well. So, I boiled …
