carrot milkshake

So easy and a nice, unusual flavor (recipe from the soy milk package).

Blend 800 ml of soy milk, one carrot, and 2 tablespoons of honey.

homemade chai lattes

A little spice for happy Mundays:

Brew some spicy chai tea, but don't fill up the mugs. Leave about 1/3 of the top free.

Add a little honey if you like. Heat up some milk on the stove, then froth it with a sweet little 100-yen frothing toy. Pour it over the tea and add a sprinkle of cinnamon.

japanese chicken burgers with homemade teriyaki sauce

Here's another recipe based on one by Just One Cookbook. Stephen and I loved her kimchi fried rice, but this one passed with flying colors for all four of us.

Just One Cookbook's original recipe was for chicken meatballs, but I had a little six-year-old helper, and we patted them into more of a hamburger shape. You can click on the above link to see the full recipe, but I did change a few things: I used okara instead of regular tofu, I added in some minced garlic cloves, and I left out the sweet peppers in favor of extra green onion.

Umami factor: 10++++++/10.
