    Pan-fried Cheese & Potato

    When I was a financially challenged Uni student, I often cooked this cheese & potato snack using a mini toaster oven. However, a non-stick frying pan works better. If you don’t have a non-stick frying pan, you can place a sheet of baking paper in a frying pan, so that the melted cheese won’t stick …

Just like my ‘Sweet Potato Mochi’, mix it with Glutinous Rice Flour and grated Cheese. It takes only a few minutes to make this yummy snack. Ingredients …

    Focaccia With Cheese Inside

    I love my ‘1-Hour Focaccia’ recipe. When I am not in a hurry, I don’t add Baking Powder to the dough. On the other day, when I was about to make Cheesy Focaccia using the recipe, I decided to sandwich the cheese instead of topping it on the bread, so that I could cook it …

    Chicken Parma

    ‘Chicken Parmigiana’ is commonly called ‘Chicken Parma’ or simply ‘Parma’ in Australia. Some Aussies call it ‘Parmy’ or ‘Parmie’. It is a staple pub food and typically served with a side of chips and salad, as I have seen last twenty-plus years. It’s a chicken breast dish but not low-calorie at all. I placed chips …

    Spinach Dip

    Dips are very popular in Melbourne. I see a huge variety of dips in supermarkets. One day I bought Spinach Dip, which was OK but not great. I bought a different brand’s one. It was not good at all. ‘The spinach and ricotta mixture that I make for cannelloni dish tastes much better than those …

    Celery & Blue Cheese Salad

    I came across a blue cheese for the first time in Australia. It had a very strong smell like rotten food. And it contained blue mould. The taste was far too strong for me and I hated it! And now? It is one of my favourite cheeses. Since I discovered a soft gooey type of …

    French Onion Soup

    Everyone loves to eat it, but backs away from cooking it. I know why. Because it takes a LONG time to caramelise the onion and you cannot leave it cook itself. You have to stay there, stirring the onion, for up to 1 hour. No way I can do that… I don’t have that patience… …

    ‘Pierogi’ Gyoza

    On the other day, at a local farmer’s market, I tried a Polish food called ‘Pierogi’. It was yummy but very pricey! The filling was a mixture of potato, bacon and cheese. I thought I could make it by myself. I looked for the recipe to make the dough, that requires flour, salt, water and …

    Pão de Queijo, Brazilian Cheese Bread

    ‘Pão de Queijo’ (Cheese Bread in Portuguese) is a small cheese roll, a popular food in Brazil. The reason why I started baking ‘Pão de queijo’ is because I simply fell in love with this bread roll when I first tasted it in Japan. More then 10 years ago, my family lived in a city …
