    Vegetarian Matcha Jelly

    To make Vegetarian jelly desserts, ‘Agar Agar’ OR ‘Kanten’ are commonly used. However, Agar Agar and Kanten are not widely available where I live. I use Queen’s ‘Jel-It-In’ Vegetarian Gelling Powder and I am a big fan of the product. It doesn’t have unpleasant smell like Gelatine and it is so easy to use. This …

    Matcha Warabi Mochi

    ‘Warabi Mochi’ is made with ‘Warabi’ (Bracken) starch flour and it is similar to ‘Kuzu Mochi’ which is made with ‘Kuzu’ starch flour. Those rare starch flours are not available for many of us, even in Japan. People make these sweets using some substitutes such as Potato Starch, that is widely available. Today I added …

    This is a special treat for Matcha lovers. I just combined Soft Matcha Chocolate with Sweet Biscuit base that I often use for Cheesecake. Today I used Arnott’s Choc Ripple Biscuits for the base.

    Tapioca Matcha Milk Jelly

    It was my husband who told me about Creamy Tapioca Pudding that many Australians love.

    Halloween Dango Eyeballs

    When I was looking for Halloween themed food, I found Eyeballs made with Bocconcini (small Mozzarella balls) and Green & Black Olives. What a brilliant idea!

    Sugar Coated Matcha Cookies

    My ‘Easiest Sweet Shortcrust Pastry’ can be a cookie dough. The cookies made of this dough have crumbly texture that is softer than my ‘Basic Cookie Dough’. Today I reduced the amount of Flour and added Almond Meal for even more delicate texture. Matcha Powder can be replaced with Cocoa Powder, or omitted for plain …
