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.


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