    No-Egg Sponge

    The other day my daughter asked me if I had a recipe for ‘No-Egg Tiramisu’. I though the cream can be made without Eggs, but how can I make Sponge Fingers without Eggs? That’s the beginning of my challenge to create ‘No-Egg Sponge’ recipe. I got a hint from ‘Theo’s Sponge’, that is made with …

    Coffee Jelly & Milk Jelly

    Coffee & Milk jelly dessert with two jellies set in two layers is popular. Today I wanted to make the same dessert in a different way. This dessert looks like Coffee Jelly floating in Milk, but Milk part is also Jelly. You can make this dessert in the other way, having Milk Jelly floating in …

    Apple & Lemon Curd Shortcake

    My husband’s great auntie Betty’s Belgian Shortcake was absolutely delicious. I made the same shortcake with different filling today. I used Stewed Apples and Lemon Curd. Why? Because I had Stewed Apples that was getting old and I needed to use it up. This happens frequently since my family’s fruit consumption dropped after my daughter …

  • Beef Other Soup

    Beef & Wakame Soup

    I have a fond memory attached to this soup as one of my sisters frequently made this soup for our family members. She always used Beef Mince, which sometimes caused me coughing because the tiny pieces of Beef went to wrong way. I prefer using thinly sliced Beef. I wonder if my sister is still …

    Custard Puff Pastry Twists

    There is a baked pastry called ‘Escargot’, which I LOVE. The one a local bakery is selling has Custard and Sultanas in it. These ‘Puff Pastry Twists’ are inspired by the ‘Escargot’. It takes only a few minutes to make the Custard in the microwave. Using store-bought Frozen Butter Puff Pastry, these delicious Twists are …

  • Beef Takikomigohan

    ‘Yakiniku’ Beef Takikomigohan

    ‘Yakiniku’ Sauce is a dipping sauce for Japanese style BBQ, but ‘Yakiniku’ Sauce can be used as a seasoning sauce for many dishes. The other day, I shared my Fried Rice recipe. This is a Takikomigohan recipe. Again, to season the dish, you only need ‘Yakiniku’ Sauce, nothing else. Using a rice cooker, this dish …

  • Potato Vegetables

    Potato Chips (Crisps) Coleslaw

    Every time I use Potato Chips (Crisps) for cooking, I receive negative response from some people. Good quality Potato Chips are basically Fried Potato that is seasoned. Why can’t we use it for cooking? I have no problem about using it for Salads. ‘Carrot & Potato Chips Salad’ and ‘Spinach, Lettuce & Potato Chips Salad’ …
