My Accomplishments

Hi! We have sun today! Yay!
The weather forecast was wrong.
It supposed to rain all week, but not...
I just hope it won't rain on Sunday, the day we leave for NY!

I won two prizes at Cookpad this week.

One is my "I Love Daddy Chocolate Cake"! I won the dad moving award! This contest was held by Meiji Seika Kaisha, Ltd., the Japanese confectionery and pharmaceutical company.
They asked for Father's Day recipes using their milk chocolate.
As I wrote before, I don't know about the taste, but it is sure that he liked it :)
He left for China on Sunday.

Another winning recipe is "Avocado Speed Rice Gratin".
The contest was held by Kewpie, well known for their mayonnaise! Also, they are well known for their three-minute cooking products. In February, they released "oil sauce for pasta" that can be cooked in 3 minutes. There are 5 different flavors: Soy Sauce and Pepper, Garlic and Red Pepper, Anchovy and Olive Oil, Dashi Scallion, and Italian Taste. You just cook your favorite ingredients with this sauce and dress pasta in it.
To open up the usage, they asked for the recipes using this products. I mixed "Soy Sauce and Pepper" sauce with avocado paste, pour it over the rice, sprinkled cheese on top, and baked. It is something like Japanese-style guacamole with rice! It was great :)

Okay again, I am very drowsy and tired.
See you tomorrow ;)

  1. Hi Ochi,

    We have sun here today too! You are leaving for NY, are you visiting relatives?

    Congrads on your contest win, your cake was so pretty, and the avacado recipe looks really good. I love melted cheese!

    Have to cook dinner, making salmon cakes! :)

  2. Your recipes looked wonderful! I am not a very good cook, so I envy those who are... Kayce

  3. Hello jo!

    It is funny that we always have the same weather :)

    >>are you visiting relatives?
    No. I'm just going there for my vacation.
    I don't have any relatives there. I have some friends from my school days and former jobs.

    Right! I remember you said you love melted cheese before! I hope I can give you an idea for your cooking ;)

    Salmon cake sounds delicious!!!
    Do you use canned salmon? Smoked salmon?
    You gave me an idea! I want to try this someday!!!

  4. Hi k.c.!

    I think I saw you at jo's blog!
    Thank you for coming!!!

    You know what!? I am not a good cook.
    I just like to create things!
    Since I moved from home, living with my boyfriend, I just started to cook by necessity.
    I didn't expect to become addicted to it!

  5. Hi Ochi,

    I use canned Salmon and of course add shredded cheese to it too! We eat them on buns with tartar sauce! My father-in-law used to bring me fresh, but he died a year ago, so no fresh salmon, or trout. This is what I miss here, not too many good places to fish! I love fish and seafood, my favorite! We finally went to Red Lobster http://redlobster.com/
    for our anniversary dinner last weekend! Great food! :)

  6. Hello jo!

    Your recipe sounds great!
    I just wrote it down not to forget!
    How you use cheese and tartar sauce is perfect for my boyfriend! I think he loves this!
    I'm sorry to hear that your father-in-law passed away, but how nice you had such a great opportunity to eat fresh fish!
    I love Lobster! Also shrimp and crab! Those are my favorites! Great choice for your anniversary dinner!!!
