Salmon En Croute (Simple Meal)

Salmon is rich in omega3  fatty acids and also proteins. Salmon can be cooked in different ways. Its a healthy option for quick and easy meal. Its has so many health benefits. Try cooking salmon in different ways.

I love pastry so this meal gives the crunchy crust out side while you get the flavourful middle. Adding spinach in to the salmon with creme fraiche gives a creamier taste to the salmon. When you serve a side salad too it becomes a full meal.

Breakfast Muffins (Simple & Easy Breakfast)

When you want to serve bacon and eggs for breakfast try this way one day. Its really easy to make  in several minutes.

You can do them a day before for reheating too. Instead of  adding bacon try adding chicken meat, beef, or seafood. The other way is grating some vegetables or add some cooked vegetable in to that.

Hokkaido cheese tarts…..

I tried to introduce my page through this video to my dear subscribers and all the viewers. Its heart breaking to see how people dislike someones effort at once with out  looking at the picture as a whole. As I just started my page I tried to get you all in this way to the page. Its a very innocent try. May be I am wrong here. I thought to try a new method…Sorry If I did something bad…….

Any way I will tell why I was so impressed about these beautiful little tarts. Recently I went to Chadstone shopping centre  to change my video camera to a better one. When I was walking I saw this cart with full of little tarts. No wonder why I stopped there. I was looking at them for a while. People were lining up in a queue to buy them. I was waiting to buy them  too. I got several and tasted one. It was awesome. Nice and creamy , very colourful and soft in the middle. All I did while driving back was thinking how to make them for you all.

This is the end product.  I love them so much. I am so happy to get these results. It looks the same and tastes the same. It didn’t stay long  all gone in few minutes. All I like to say is try this at least once and see how beautiful they are……………..
