    Carrot & Pineapple Doughnuts

    I used to make these doughnuts with finely grated Carrot only. When I added some leftover canned crushed Pineapple, which I always add to ‘My Legendary Carrot Cake’, the flavour was improved and I liked it very much. Then I started adding Pineapple. Carrot only version is also very nice. If you use just Carrot, …

    Almond Toffee

    There are very many different recipes for Toffee. Some recipes require a lot of ingredients. I use Sugar and Butter to make Toffee, but I always add Almonds. You can use other nuts such as Pecans, Walnuts OR Peanuts. I don’t want to make a huge amount, because this Toffee is high in calories and …

    Fish Fingers & Egg Rice Bowl

    I used to purchase Frozen Fish Fingers for my children regularly when they were young. My children loved Fish Fingers and they made a quick & easy meal.

    Stewed Beef & Vegetables

    This is the most simple Stewed Beef & Vegetables, I suppose. Today I had some chuncky cuts of Beef for casserole, and I wanted to cook something very light. So, I simply stewed everything in Vegetable Stock and seasoned with Slat & Black Pepper. I thought it needed some acidity, then I added a Tomato. …

    Gochujang Mackerel Udon

    Since I invented ‘Gochujang Mackerel Rice Bowl’, I have been making it frequently. I actually don’t need to cook anything if I had already cooked Rice. Because it is so easy and delicious, I made a Udon Noodle version today. I recommend to add an Egg to this dish. Egg can be boiled, poached OR …

    Rice Cooker Carrot Bread

    When I was a child, my family’s breakfast was Bread and Hot Drink. Some mornings, when my mother realised we didn’t have enough Bread, she often made steamed Bread. If she’d had a rice cooker that cooks Cake, she would have used it. This Carrot Bread was cooked in the rice cooker. The top side …

    Lemon Squares

    I am a big fan of Lemon Curd Slice, but Lemon Curd contains a large amount of Butter and you need a lot of Lemon Juice to make it. This ‘Lemon Squares’ tastes almost the same but much lighter, and you can make it with just 1 Lemon. This is a very easy recipe. You …

    Tomato Rice Soup

    Rice Soup is a good way to use up leftover Cooked Rice, particularly Cooked Rice that is cold and hard. Today I used canned diced Tomatoes, but if you have the harvest from your garden, please use fresh ripe Tomatoes, and the soup will be beautiful. You can add the Cooked Rice to any soup, …
