Rice Cooker Chicken Rice

I am nursing a stiff neck here and can't hang around the computer for too long, so I am going to keep this post short.

This recipe came from one of the Japanese books I lugged back previous and is the first recipe I am trying from it. However, I have added more ingredients to make it a standalone dish. It is simple to assemble and requires no supervision once you turn on the rice cooker. Although Hubby commented that it was on the bland side, this dish was good enough for Princess and me to eat a big bowl each.

I am still trying to get a hang of this recipe flow chart thing and I would like to hear from you if you think this chart is making things more confusing. Let me hear your thoughts on this. Thanks in advance.


  1. Dear Rene,

    It's a really interesting way to write out a recipe.. But shows your logical and very organized way of thinking... It's pretty easy to follow. But I think when it is a lengthier recipe like the oatmeal bread one, it can get abit complicated, would be easier to read and follow if it was listed the normal way... By the way, I'm greatly inspired by your bento lunch box ideas... It'll be great if you could share more and also share with me where you buy all the seperators and little food holders within the lunch box.. Your little princess is a really lucky girl... :D Cheers!


  2. Hi Hazel,

    Thanks for your feedback. I agree that it gets really confusing when it comes to more complicated recipes.

    I have thought of doing more posts on bento but I somehow feel inadequate to do so, esp when there are so many great blogs out there on this topic. I will put up a post on most my bento resources and bounty from my favourite shops for your reference soon. Hope that helps.

Post-meditated Pumpkin and Mushroom Soup

I cannot help but notice that recently the trendy words that seem to flood the wellness media always carry words like “self-care”, “meditation”, “gratitude”, and even “mindfulness” has been thrown in for good measure. Yes, all these single-word suggestions sound good. We all need to know how to take our stress level down a few notches at a time when we need to keep our face masks up.  So when I read the news about a nail being found in the pumpkin mushroom soup of an unidentified Asian passenger on board our national carrier bound for Auckland, imagine my dilemma. Should I feel grateful that my previous soups on board were served without any nails? Or should I feel grateful that I could not afford to fly our national carrier often enough to be served soups which might actually have carried nails or other specials in them? As you can see, I am pretty new to this wellness speak and hence very confused about this “gratitude” aspect of the trend.     Like any dutiful social m

Rosemary Cuttings

I think I am really bored with life. So bored that I am trying my hands are transplanting my rosemary plant! This is just after I killed by some mint off-shoots recently by transplanting them. I have black fingers, I think. Not that I need another rosemary plant. I am just plain curious why some people here are able to root a cutting from a Cold Storage pack . It sounds so easy that it is absurdly unfair. Maybe it is just my lack of technique and common sense when it comes to plants. Here's a link that I found helpful about transplanting rosemary . Seems that the chances of success for my transplanted rosemary doesn't look high. I didn't dip it in rooting powder (!!??), I transplanted it in medium sized container, and the soil is of highly questionable source (don't ask). Well, if the little fellow didn't make it, you will hear of it here soon.

Comparing Banana Breads

Most of the times, at least for the logical people, baking is the last thing on their minds as who would want their kitchens filled with hot air churning out from the ovens  in the land of eternal summer? If not for  those limp and blackened bananas sitting in their Tupperware coffins, dawdling towards its expiry, I would have happily nodded my head in wholehearted agreement. These banana were long gone their prime time for smoothies but these were ironically the best state to make banana-anything. If my helper was still around, I would have happily asked her to make those arteries-clogging Jemput-Jemput (aka banana fritters), unfortunately, she was not. So I cranked up my oven to 180 degC and got down to work. I have made banana bread many times with the recipe from Joy of Cooking ('97 edition) and was quite happy with it. So when I realised that JOC came up with a 2019 edition, I knew I need to get my paws on it ASAP and try out that version of Banana Bread.  So thanks to
