    Mashed Potato & Almond Cake

    Sweet Potatoes are often used for making cakes and pies, but ordinary Potatoes are not. I recently leaned that Potatoes are used for sweet cakes in many regions in Europe, so I tried.

    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. …

    Stewed Beef & Vegetables

    This is the simplest Stewed Beef & Vegetables, I suppose. Today I had some chunky cuts of Beef for casserole, and I wanted to cook something very light.
