    Pistachio Paste

    The other day, I thought about making Pistachio Ice Cream. I needed Pistachio Paste to make it, and looked for it, and I was shocked! Have you ever tried to buy Pistachio Paste? It is extremely expensive. So, I made it by myself. I soaked the Kernels in water to soften, so that it would …

    Sweet Potato & Peanuts with Miso Sauce

    This dish is a variation of my ‘Miso Peanuts & Tofu’. I replaced Tofu with steamed Sweet Potato today. I wanted to use Pumpkin, but Pumpkins in Australia are all too wet and not suitable for stir-fry dish like this one. Floury Pumpkin that has fluffy texture would be great. You may wish to try …

    Mock Marron Glacé

    I was planning to make ‘Chestnut Mousse Cake’ and I wanted to decorate it with Marron Glacé. However, there is no store that sells Marron Glacé where I live, and the online purchase would cost a fortune. So, I decided to make them by myself. However, peeling Chestnuts would be too hard for my aching …

    Scrumptious Walnuts

    Since I cooked ‘Scrumptious Dried Sardines & Walnuts’, I have known Walnuts and Soy Sauce are a good match. These Scrumptious Walnuts are great with cold Beer OR Green Tea.

    Peanuts & Potato Soup

    You might think this creamy soup was made with Milk. I didn’t add any sort of Milk. It is white and creamy because of Peanuts. I blend it quite smoothly, but crispy texture of Peanuts tends to remain. You won’t notice it is Peanut-based soup as it is hard to taste Peanuts in this soup. …

    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 …

    Walnuts Stuffed Prunes

    When I was looking for Ukrainian foods on the internet and came across ‘Walnuts Stuffed Prunes’, I was not very interested. I was not a big fan of Dried Prunes, though I was fully aware of the health benefit of Prunes. ‘Walnuts Stuffed Prunes’ should be super easy to make, so I made a few. …
