Another easy meal & single serving cake

Stir-fry is my favorite quick meal. Every night I’ll pick different ingredients: greens, mushrooms, a protein, an additional and the sauce of choice. Like this one, it has chinese mustard greens, mushrooms, broccoli, tofu and a tahini-miso sauce.


If I had carrots, I’d add some for extra color πŸ˜‰


and this one that uses eggs (Maggie’s idea) instead of tofu.


Another easy meal that requires almost none preparation is the one-pot meal made in my beloved rice-cooker. Just throw all the ingredients in it and wait 60 min and it’s ready to eat! πŸ˜†

This one is made with brown rice, edamame, chickpea, shiitake mushroom, bok choy and chinese sausage


This one is made with millet, shredded cabbage, onions, edamame, tofu and it’s seasoned with curry powder.


this one looks bad but it’s tasty as well, it has millet, bok choy, shiitake, broccoli and chinese sausage.


I like to prepare them for the day that I need to pack lunch and freeze the rest for another lazy night πŸ™‚

Last night I was craving sweet, not chocolate kind of sweet, but cake. So I made a single serving coconutΒ cake. Super simple!

I found ipad to be very convenient when it comes to recipe reading. I know I know… I could write down the recipe and take it in the kitchen. But don’t you think it’s even easier to just bring the recipe to the kitchen? Β I think so! πŸ˜‰


Ingredients for 1 single serving cake:

  • 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour

Mix everything, top with crushed butter crunch cashew



bake for 15 min at 400F and ready to serve~~~ πŸ˜€


It was scrumptious!!! The texture is denser than normal cake thanks to coconut flour, just what I craved! πŸ˜€ I realized that making single serving cake is so easy, with just few ingredient, and in <20 min a fresh cake is ready! πŸ˜€

  6. aahhhhh….you’re killin’ me with that cake! I loooooove the asian type cakes! Like the ones with really fluffy batter and fancy light whipped cream frosting. Oh!! And ricotta cheesecake and tres leches! OK i can’t choose. πŸ™‚

  7. These all sound right up my alley. I have actually been using curry powder in several dinners as of late.
    I think this coconut cake would be devoured by Nick. He loves coconut. I love it too, but it’s not on my low fodmaps diet 😦 It makes me bloated and gassy, which is so sad. My favorite cake is probably carrot, which is incredibly difficult to make really fast!!
