    Udon Carbonara

    Italian Pasta are suitable for Japanese flavoured noodle dishes. Japanese Noodles are also suitable for many Italian flavoured pasta dishes. I think Udon Noodles, which are thick and rubbery, are very good with creamy sauces. Today I cooked ‘Spaghetti Carbonara’ replacing Spaghetti with Udon. Makes 1 Serving Ingredients 40g Pancetta OR Bacon *cut into small …

    Savoury Buttermilk Cheese Scones

    My Scone recipes are all based on Auntie Lorna’s scone recipe. Lorna’s scones are made with basic ingredients only. I started to use Buttermilk instead of regular Milk, and the Buttermilk version makes even nicer Scones. Today I added some grated Cheese and Chives to make these Savoury Scones. Lorna’s recipe has been evolving into …

    Roasted Parmesan Cauliflower

    I have been cooking Cauliflower in different ways. I admit my favourite method is roasting in the oven, though it is not the best energy saving. My family loves ‘Curry Flavoured Roasted Cauliflower’. After repeatedly cooked the same flavoured Roasted Cauliflower, it was time for me to create a new flavour. Cheese always goes well …

    Pan-fried Garlic Cheese Cauliflower

    Since I discovered the pan-steaming method to cook Broccoli, and it is the best & easiest way to cook Broccoli, I tried to cook Cauliflower in the same way. It works but it seems I need a little more water for Cauliflower. Today I added grated Cheese. As the result was so good, I must …

    Pan-fried Cheesy Asparagus

    Many people cook this dish in the oven, but I don’t want to heat up the oven just to make this dish. Pan-frying is more energy-efficient. The top of the cheese won’t get browned when cooked in a frying pan, but the bottom gets browned. For an everyday meal, this is good enough for me. …

    Fennel & Bocconcini Salad

    Aromatic Fennel is best to eat raw. Its anise-like flavour is so good with slightly sweet citrus-base dressing. I often use Orange, but I used Lemon today. For this Fennel salad, plain and milky Bocconcini (Mozzarella Cheese Balls) are perfect. Add more Fennel leaves if you have for extra aroma. Makes 2 to 3 Servings …
