My signature Granola

Made my original granola. Apparently this is much beautiful,healthier and it costs cheaper than the bought one. Taro loves it very much. He likes to eat it as soy milk porridge. :)

Here's my recipe.

-2 cups organic rolled oats
-1 cup various nuts and seeds ( this time, I added chopped almond and walnuts, pumpkin seeds and coconuts)
-plenty of various dried fruits as you like
(I chose chopped apricots,orange peels, fig, red currants and raison)
- 5 tablespoons of maple syrup
Preheat the oven 150℃.
Put the oatmeals, nuts and seeds and maple syrup in a large bowl. Mix together.
Spread them on the baking tray.
Bake it for 30 minutes, stirring mixture every 10 to 15 minutes. Put coconuts on the tray in the last 1 minutes of done. Let cool. Stir in dried fruits. Store in an airtight container.

Macrobiotic Apple&Sweetpotato Tart

This recipe is still imperfect so far, but I 've found how to make it better. No matter how Jun gets tired of it, I will bake it again:p
When the recipe get fix, I will show you soon....

Autumn has come!

I've just found there is blogger application and can be blogging using iPhone!
Since getting comfortable weather, I am baking some tartes almost everyday. Morning sick seems to be over. A baby in my tummy is kicking me quite often. Probably a baby girl will come over to us:) Must think about girls name!
Baked macrobiotic fig tart. Baked more than three times this season. Yes, i am insane. Luckily, Taro is crazy about it, whereas Jun got fed up with it. He wanted to eat figs as fresh. Have to get fresh fig again for Jun;p

Kaorinskiee has got pregnant!

Baked Cookie Monster's choco chip cookies for Taro.

Sorry for not being update my blog for a long time.
I would like to announce that I am 3 months pregnancy now!!
It must be happy news but I have been suffering from having some sort of morning sickness these days so that I cannot cook as usual nor upload my blog.... :(
Cannot stand the smell of fish, ethnic food and spice now.... I cannot believe I hate these smell and never want to watch and cook them!
Hope my morning sick will cure soon and will cook anything as usual....

The baby in my tummy is due in February 2012.
Taro has become more selfish and naughty these days. According to his an excuse, "I am now struggling and fighting with a baby in mom's tummy but I always have been beaten by baby....."
Hummm... I said to him, "Please do not fight him/her.You can get along with him/her." You will become a great and kindest brother in the world! "

I don't know when I will be able to come back my blog but everyday I cook for my family anyway.(except ethnic food :P)
See you some time.

Macrobiotic Birthday Cake!

Baked Macrobiotic Birthday cake for my friend. Adapted from this cook bookI love. For cream, soy bean curd paste instead of fresh cream. It takes a certain time to make it, but it is worth making it.

This is totally different from the usual one. Please do not compare with it. But this macrobiotic cake is very healthy and never feel sick even if you ate it too much.

Sunday Breakfast

Baked whole wheat buns.
I like to have Shiso herb for sandwich instead of lettuce. This would be more exiotic taste.

Taro's rate:★★★
He doesn't want to eat Shiso herb.

Ring Shaped Pasta

For Sunday lunch, we woke up early and made ring shaped pasta from scratch. Taro also helped me and enjoyed making it.
This is what we made! If you get rid of Parmigiano Leggiano Cheese, it would become "Vegan Pasta". Very healthy.

For Main dish, Pork fillet sautee with fig salad. A little bit bitter rocket, sweeten and sour fig are matching with Rosemary satee pork fillet. If you have varsamico vineger, drizzle them on it. Much more tasty.....

Taro's rate:★★★★
He ate pasta only.
