    Sugar Coated Sweet Potato Sticks

    This ‘Sugar Coated Sweet Potato Sticks’ are called ‘Imo Kempi’ in Japan and it was one of my favourite childhood snacks. It is really easy to make, but not so easy to make them super crunchy like the ones from shops. Because an Asian green grocer in the area where I live now is selling …

    Fried & Glazed Japanese Sweet Potato

    Japanese Sweet Potato is one of the vegetables that I miss. My favourite Japanese Sweet Potato dish is ‘Daigaku Imo’ (大学芋) that is deep-fried Sweet Potato coated with sweet and savoury glaze. I have tried to make it using Sweet Potatoes that are available in Australia and none of them was good. Then, today I …

    Spinach, Lettuce & Potato Chips Salad

    Believe it or not, my ‘Carrot & Potato Chips Salad’ is one of the most accessed salad recipes on this website. I think Potato Chips (Crisps) is an underestimated salad ingredient.

    Sausage & Potato Casserole

    ‘Sausages & Mashed Potatoes’ is actually not very easy to prepare. First of all, I don’t like pan-frying Sausages as it makes kitchen dirty with splatters. I have to make gravy sauce after Sausages are cooked, and I have to make Mashed Potatoes as well. I tried several ways to cook Sausages and Potatoes, and …

    Carrot & Potato Chips Salad

    When my son was young, he hated most vegetables. If I have chopped up the vegetables finely, he would have tried to remove those particles.
