    Chilli Con Carne Cottage Pie

    I usually serve Chilli Con Carne with Rice. But today I tried to make it into Cottage Pie. Mashed Potato could go well with any flavour and I though this would be delicious, and I was right. I usually don’t add Cheese to my Cottage Pie, but today I added some shredded Tasty Cheese and …

    Baked Red Capsicum

    Vegetable prices are rising lately. The other day I saw a bag of wonky Red Capsicums at a local green grocer, and it was cheap. Of course, I bought one. Wonky Vegetables taste the same, you know. I was a little tired today and I couldn’t bother doing any extra work to cook the wonky …

    Canned Salmon & Egg Pie

    I believe this ‘Canned Salmon & Egg Pie’ tastes better than the pricey Salmon Pie I had at a local cafe. This type of pies are easy to make. You don’t need a pie dish. Using a Canned Salmon and store-bought Frozen Puff Pastry, you would be surprised at how easy it is to make …

    Lorna’s Butter-less Scones

    My husband’s Great-Auntie Lorna gave me har Scone recipe nearly 30 years ago. It was a very simple one. Following her instructions, I have never failed to make high risen Scones ever since. Recently I have discovered another Lorna’s Scone recipe, that requires No Butter at all. Can Scones be made without Butter? I tried …

    Savoury Buttermilk Cheese Scones

    My Scone recipes are all based on Auntie Lorna’s scone recipe. Lorna’s scones are made with basic ingredients only. I started to use Buttermilk instead of regular Milk, and the Buttermilk version makes even nicer Scones. Today I added some grated Cheese and Chives to make these Savoury Scones. Lorna’s recipe has been evolving into …

    Tuna Mornay

    ‘Tuna Mornay’ is a very popular Tuna Casserole in Australia. It can be made with inexpensive staple ingredients. You can use any pasta of your choice, but it seems most people use Pennette, Large Spirals or any pasta in a similar size. Some people use Boiled Eggs instead of Pasta, and that would be yummy. …

    Baked Chicken Tenderloins

    Chicken Tenderloins can be cooked very quickly, and that’s why this method works. Heat the oven, make a spice mix, sprinkle the spice mix over the Chicken Tenderloins, add some Japanese Mayonnaise and shredded Cheese, then bake for 15 minutes. While Chicken Tenderloins are baking, make a salad. A ‘Quick & Easy’ meal idea for …

    Soy Sauce & Ginger Marinated Chicken Drumsticks

    The marinade made of Soy Sauce, Sake (Rice Wine) and Ginger is the most popular and most frequently used marinade in Japan. I often use it to marinate Fish, Tofu and Chicken. It can be tricky to marinate Chicken with bones such as Drumsticks as the amount of the marinade in this recipe is minimal. …

    Potato & Canned Salmon Gratin

    On the other day, I overcooked Potato and I couldn’t make what I meant to cook with it. So I just chucked it into a baking dish, added Canned Salmon, squeeze some Japanese Mayonnaise over, cover with some leftover Cheese, then baked it. The result was not bad at all. I am now writing down …

    Meatloaf With Loads Of Vegetables

    My son didn’t eat vegetables when he was young. I used to make Hamburger Steaks with lots and lots of vegetables finely chopped up and mixed with minced meat. That way he ate any vegetables without knowing he was eating them. This mixture can be formed into round patties and cooked in a frying pan, …
