Cherry Blossom/Sakura Cookies


I’ve seen many people making dessert with the preserved sakura for the past few years and they were so pretty. I found them online but there were not cheap so I waited until Diana went back to Japan and she bought some for me. My two good friends Linda and Maria got me some too when they were holidaying there. So I’ve been using it to make moon cakes, macarons and now these cookies. Diana is in Japan again now so hopefully she is able to find more for me.


I made these cookies for a birthday tea party for a very good friend last week. Turns out really pretty and everyone goes oooh and ahhh over it and said they look too pretty to eat. I got the recipe from Daily Delicious with a tiny change. I added some almond powder to it and increased the flour by 20 gram as I find to dough too wet to handle. I think it might be the size of the egg yolk I used.

Stuffed Onion Rings


I came up with this dish on the day that I ran out of idea of what to prepare for our dinner. I have some ground meat in hand and decided to mix it up with a few other ingredients and stuff it in some onion rings. Turn our pretty good to have it with rice.

Ingredients:

2 medium size onions – cut into ½” rings
3 tbsp of flour
2 eggs - beaten

Salmon Patties


I know I have been neglecting my blog for awhile and I hope there are still people stopping by here. I am so sorry about that. Well, I have been very busy for the past 6-7 months, with my home business, then my trip back to Malaysia and after I came back I have to preparing for our moves to another house. So, that was what happening to my life all within a few months. With now settling at a new place hopefully I can get back to my routine of blogging and cooking again. I was just telling Carlos how much I miss doing it.


Anyway, here I am trying to catch up with all the backlogs. There are so many pictures to edit, so many recipes to type out. Let’s start with these Salmon patties which I made some time ago. I like making these patties when salmon fish goes on sale. I will grill a few extra pieces just so I can make these.

Spaghetti with Easy Cherry Tomatoes Sauce


My cherry tomato plants gave me some bumper crop last season. Carlos is not a fan of cherry tomatoes so I am the only one eating it. I like eating them raw and sometimes I just cut them up and put it in my pasta. This is a very fast and easy meal to prepare. While you are boiling the pasta you can prepare the sauce and when pasta is ready all you have to do is mixing it into the sauce. The juicy sweet cherry tomatoes burst open in warm olive oil, creating a luxuriously silky sauce and voila the meal comes together in less than 20 minutes.
