    Simple Carrot Cake

    This cake is not very sweet. Because I stared making this cake for my then very young children as a substitute for bread and I didn’t want it sweet at all. Lately I add Sugar, and you may wish to add extra Sugar to make it properly sweet cake, but I like to eat it …

    Mixed Beans Wasabi Mayo Salad

    ‘Canned Mixed Beans (Four Beans), Edamame and Carrot’ is my favourite combination for a quick bean salad. Sometimes I add other salad vegetables such as Cucumber and Lettuce. Dress the salad with various dressings, but this is my absolute favourite. It’s ‘Japanese Mayonnaise, Soy Sauce and Wasabi’. If you don’t like Wasabi, try Garlic Chilli …

    Broccoli Slaw with Creamy Dressing

    ‘Broccoli Slaw’ is my new discovery at a Coles supermarket. It was packed with creamy dressing and $5 for about 2 servings. I like it a lot, but the list of ingredients freaked me out, and also it is pricey! Coleslaw can be prepared easily and cheaply at home. You don’t need to buy the …

    Mock Peking Duck

    I call this ‘Chinese Souvlaki’. The pancakes for this dish are super easy to make. At least much easier than making Greek flat bread. The whole duck is not easily accessible for many people. Why don’t you use chicken? Roast a whole chicken in the ‘Peking Duck’ flavour OR my ‘Teriyaki Chicken’ can be a …

    Carrot & Raisin Salad

    Once I bought this salad from a store and fell in love with it. There are many different ‘Carrot & Raisin Salad’ recipes but I have found many of them too sweet. Carrot is a quite sweet vegetable and Raisins are very sweet. You don’t need to add much sugar, honey or syrup. I have …

    Stewed Lamb & Vegetables

    When I stew lamb meat, I always buy shoulder meat. A large block of shoulder meat is probably the cheapest cut. Shoulder of the animal works hard, so the meat from a lamb’s shoulder is full of flavour and perfect for stewing. I add lots of vegetables. You may think the following amount of vegetables …

    Steamed Carrot Buns

    Many years ago, when I was teaching at a primary school in Japan, mother of a student in my class gave me a recipe of ‘Steamed Carrot Buns’. The recipe was lost but I am still making these carrot buns. Because the batter is very soft, you need cupcake cases. The buns will expand double …

    Okonomiyaki with Garlic Chives

    When I found a bunch of Garlic Chives getting wilted in the fridge, I decided to add them to Okonomiyaki. To make Okonomiyaki more colourful and nutritious, I also added Carrot. And the result was unsatisfying. It didn’t taste good with ‘Okonomiyaki Sauce’ and Japanese mayonnaise. Why? I tried the ‘Okonomiyaki with Garlic Chives’ with …
