Apple Cranberry Earl Grey Cake

I really love earl grey tea! The rich flavor always cheer me up and warm me up, so if someone offers me a cup of tea, I always ask earl grey tea.

And, here is cranberry. I love this sweet and sour flavor! What if I bake a cake with them…? Of course, that means I’ll have the best cake ever!

Asian Flavored Corn and Egg Soup

Usually if my main dish is Chinese food, I pair up with wonton soup without wonton but with seaweed and scallion. (Sounds a little Weird?;) ) But as I was making mapo tofu, I wanted to try something different. I’m craving food so much lately, so I choose something can stock up my tummy: cream corn!

I think I used to have it in my school lunch, so creamy sweet corn and egg with savory flavor of sesame oil caused nostalgia that night.

Asian flavored corn soup. If it hit your mind, your tummy wants that so cook it right away!

Hijiki(Seaweed) and Spinach Salad

Have you tried my traditional hijiki seaweed dish?

If so, we should move on to the East-Meets-West dish!

 

As you know, hijiki seaweed is widely consumed by people who live in East Asia. We usually use soy sauce to cook hijiki seaweed, but how about season with yogurt and cheese?

 

At this moment, just reading this posting and never tried the hijiki and spinach salad, you might feel weird to mix up hijiki seaweed and yogurt/cheese, but trust me, this creamy dressing and veggies, seaweed matches great!

 

Since spinach is rich source for iron and hijiki seaweed has essential mineral, this can be super food to stay healthy with just a small bowl!

Classic Italian appetiser: Caprese

One of the most classic appetizers to pair up your Italian dish: Caprese.

 

Pretty simple recipe so nobody can mess up cooking this, and since it is using just a few ingredients and the method isn’t complicated at all, everyone can make this perfectly!

 

Fresh sweet and a little sour tomato and mellow mozzarella with fresh herbal aroma of basil. Mmm, sounds fantastic and must be great small bite!

Cream Cheese Corn Pizza

I was passing by in front of  a pizza restaurant today.

 

Oh God, it smelled so good. Just by smelling of their pizza, I can tell their pizza is the best in local or even in entire states.

 

So on the way to go home, today’s dinner had decided to be a pizza. Classic margherita pizza sounds great too, but today, I’d give a twist on my pizza and make it as my signature dish.

 

I had cream cheese on my ref and some whole kernel sweet corn left, so today’s pizza is tomato-less but tasty one!

 

I think it is similar one to popular Asian bakery bread. Mellow cream cheese with corn topped with fresh herbal aroma of parsley, you’ll be in love with this east meets west pizza!
