Hello there, welcome to my new posting!

Phew! Looks like tax return deadline has been postponed due to technical problem on the website. Did it happen because there are more last minutes people than previous year? 😀

Fresh Tomato in Ponzu Sesame Oil

I love tomato, both fresh and processed as marinara sauce or ketchup.


I bet there are quite large number of people who like ketchup, marinara sauce but don’t like eating fresh tomato.

If you are avoiding to eat fresh tomato, just try this method. It’s a snap to make it, and you won’t regret 😉

Spinach, Mushroom and Sweet Corn Stir Fry with Buttery Soy Sauce

Butter and soy sauce.

This is one of my favorite seasoning combinations in the world. Butter ‘s mild and creamy flavor with a little salty, savory kick attract not only my tongue but also my nose to catch rich aroma.


I remember cooked spinach with sweet corn appeared regularly on my school lunch, but that one was seasoned with just a pinch of salt and pepper. While it is true that it was tasty enough to be one of the favorite veggie side dish back in my childhood, I wish they cooked it with butter and soy sauce from the beginning, so that it could be the one kids finished eating it immediately and got another serving (Or diner lady cooked them with just sprinkle of salt and pepper on purpose to avoid conflict? :P)


Anyways, I bet everyone would love it because of the flavorful taste. Sure, it has deep green color from the spinach so some kids who don’t like to eat veggies might say NOOOOOOO to eat it. But after just one small bite, kids will turn to change veggie eater for sure 😉
