    Dried Cranberry Compote

    I found a bag of Dried Cranberries in the pantry after I purchased a bag of Dried Cranberries to make a cake. I decided to make the old ones into a compote. A compote can be made by cooking Fruit in water with sugar. Spices and Flavours such as Citrus Peel can be added. Once …

    Canned Tuna Rice Bowl

    Here is another super easy dish that you can make with a small can of Tuna. If you have already cooked Rice, you don’t need to cook anything. Just mix Tuna with a sauce, and enjoy with the Rice. This recipe includes two different sauces, ‘Chilli & Oyster Sauce’ and ‘Gochujang & Garlic Sauce’. Both …

  • Takikomigohan Tofu & Soy Protein

    Yuba (Tofu Skin) & Carrot Takikomigohan

    The other day, when I wanted to eat ‘Abura-age & Carrot Takikomigohan’, that is one of my favourite ‘Takikomigohan’ dishes, but I didn’t have ‘Abura-age’ (Fried Thin Tofu), I decided to use ‘Yuba’ (Tofu Skin) instead. ‘Yuba’ is very different from ‘Abura-age’, but both are made from Soy Beans. So, I tried to cook it …

    Corn Starch Matcha Milk Jelly

    I have shared some recipes for Matcha Jelly Desserts on this website, but this is certainly the easiest one. It is Vegan friendly as you use Corn Starch as a gelling agent. It is delicious as it is, but you may wish to enjoy it with whipped Cream, Matcha Syrup, Condensed Milk, Sweet Azuki Paste, …

    Peanut Butter & Oats Cookies

    The other day, I saw Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies that can be made with Peanut Butter only. It reminded me an old recipe that I wrote when I tried to make ‘ANZAC Biscuits’ with Peanut Butter. The biscuits were too heavy and too overwhelming, and I gave up on the recipe. I tried the old …

    Stir-fried Chicken Breast, Capsicum & Bamboo Shoot

    There is a Chinese stir-fry dish of Beef, Capsicum and Bamboo Shoot. This is my Chicken version of it. Thinly sliced Chicken Breast is best suitable for this stir-fry. Bamboo Shoot is essential. Canned Bamboo Shoot is available from Asian Grocery stores and many supermarket stores. It doesn’t take long to cook thinly sliced Chicken …

  • Beef Udon

    Beef Stroganoff Udon

    Rubbery Udon Noodles can go well with many different flavours. Today I cooked Beef Stroganoff using leftover Beef and Sour Cream, and added Udon Noodles to it. It was a surprisingly good match. Pickled Cucumber is absolutely recommended as I always add it to my ‘Super Easy Beef Stroganoff’. If you don’t have Udon Noodles, …

    Peanut Brittle

    There are many different Candied Roasted Nuts in the world. Japan has Muscovado Candied Roasted Soy Beans. I am a huge fan of ‘Almond Toffee’. They are dangerous foods, but I love them all. Peanut Brittle is super easy to make and you don’t need special ingredients. Well, some recipes require ingredients that most people …

    Simple Yoghurt & Lemon Cake

    Sadly it was the war in Ukraine that introduced me Sunflower Oil. When I started my challenge to cook Ukrainian dishes and cakes, I started using Sunflower Oil and I fell in love with it. I often use it for cakes lately. Sunflower Oil makes the cakes soft and the cakes stay soft when cold. …
