    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. It’s a delicious and nutritious snack. The only problem is that it’s hard to stop eating them. If you prefer sweet snack, try my ‘Muscovado …

    Sticky Date Cupcakes with Caramel Sauce

    My very first experience to taste ‘Dates’ was Sticky Date Pudding. It was after I moved to Australia. I liked the flavour of Sticky Date Pudding, but I thought it was overwhelmingly sweet. It is always good to make it at home, because I can alter the amount of Sugar. Today I made these Cupcakes …

    Smoked Sausage & Sauerkraut Flammkuchen

    I love Flammkuchen, aka German Pizza, and I sometimes crave it. Today I didn’t have Bacon but I had Kransky Sausages. Germany is famous for its delicious Sausages. I decided to make Flammkuchen with Kransky Sausages, which is the most commonly available smoked Sausage in Australia. It smelled good when baked, but I thought something …

    Super Easy Blueberry & Yoghurt Ice Cream

    This ice cream is almost identical to my ‘Super Easy Mixed Berries & Yoghurt Ice Cream’ but I mixed everything together to achieve this amazing colour. I used Frozen Blueberries. You don’t need Ice Cream machine OR any special tools. You only need a whisk to whip Cream and spatula to mix. It is absolutely …

    Yoghurt Scones

    My family’s consumption of Yoghurt has dropped after we stopped eating Granola, that is a very high calorie food. I have been making Greek Yoghurt at home for many years, but I must say I have to stop making it as nobody is eating it. The reason why I made these Yoghurt Scones was simple. …

    Dried Black Currant Jam

    I had a lot of Dried Black Currants that were getting old and I needed to use them. I looked for recipes and found Black Currant Jam was interesting. However, it is made with fresh Black Currants. I tried to use Dried Black Currants. With a small amount of Corn Starch, they turned into this …

    Prawn, Egg & Iceberg Lettuce Udon

    I do love the combination of Prawns, Egg and Iceberg Lettuce. I often use them for Fried Rice and Stir-fries. They are great for Soups as well. You may be surprised to hear cooking Iceberg Lettuce, but Iceberg Lettuce is actually good for cooking as it retains the crispiness after being cooked. This is another …

    Chicken in Creamy Mushroom Sauce

    Creamy Mushroom Sauce is very popular and I believe everyone has their own recipe. I have shared my Creamy Mushroom Sauce recipe on this website, but actually I always cook it slightly differently. Sometimes I use Sour Cream, use different Herbs, add Sake (Rice Wine) OR use Chicken Stock only, and I sometimes use Oil …

    Lemon Magic Cake

    Magic Cake turns into three layers when baked. Sometimes it turns into only 2 layers of Custard and Sponge, but it is still good. My basic ‘Magic Cake’ recipe is very versatile and you can add extra ingredient(s) for flavours. Today I added Lemon Zest and Lemon Juice. I was happy with the result. The …

    Cabbage Outer Leaf Chips

    In Melbourne where I live, the price of Cabbage is unbelievable lately. The other day I bought a Savoy Cabbage and didn’t want to waste the outer leaves that were quite tough. Then I did an experiment. I have heard of Kale Chips, which is oven-baked Kale leaves. I baked Cabbage outer leaves in the …
