    Asian Mushrooms & Garlic Mazegohan

    I love ‘Asian Mushroom Takikomigohan’, that is Rice and Mushrooms cooked together. To cook them together, there is a limit on how much mushrooms I can add.

    Chicken Stroganoff With Wholegrain Mustard

    On the other day, I cooked Chicken version of my ‘Super Easy Beef Stroganoff’.
