Low-Carb Cheesy “Toast”

“My toast ain’t bread. It’s low-Carb food. It’s vegetable!”

Yes, having on diet to shed away the final round of my baby weight for the past few months, I learnt to eat low carb food. This is one of the dishes I have learnt to make, to replace high carb ingredients, once in awhile.

You may call this a “toast”, “pancake”, or “Rosti”. It’s made of mashed cauliflower as its main. I liked it a lot as it’s just yummy and doesn’t taste like vegetable. Even my toddler son ate it. To me, it resembled a cheesy pancake meal. :)

Avocado Cake with Chocolate Cream Cheese

“Simple and delicious avocado cake for a healthy afternoon.”

Avocado is definitely a superfood for all ages due to its high nutritional value. However, not everyone would accept its creamy texture and taste. I personally loved it so much that I would eat it whenever I could, but it wasn’t the case for my children. In order to make them eat, the taste of the avocado mustn’t be present in their palate. If you, too, encounter hard time getting your young ones (and even the big ones) to eat avocado, here I have a great & simple solution for you. Here you go, having the superfood disguised in my little sweet treat. Who says this is not one of the best ways for treats & “tricks”.. :D

This romantic and luscious cake that suits all occasions. I made this because my son loved strawberry and cheese. I thought the combination would make him thrilled, even on his dad’s birthday. Yes, this was the birthday cake for the dad’s, but with favourable to son’s liking. :D

Indeed, son requested 3 servings at one go, and wanted to go on, if I did not stop him. In fact, it was well-liked by everyone. Even I supposed to watch my diet, couldn’t resist and had 2 slices of it. :)

Cheesy Mashed Potato with Cream Sauce Gravy

“It’s a mashed potato well filled with gravy and delicious toppings.”

It looked like a mashed potato cake to me. It could be served as snack for tea, a side for dinner, and even a main for lunch. Homemade cheesy mashed potato is delicious.

I used the store-bought gravy pack which needed some assembly to be done. From Ikea food market. Yes, just to try out. It was tasty, indeed. (*Actual pic of the cream sauce pack was posted in my Instagram or FB page’s comment)

This recipe was created simply because I had leftover bacon and asparagus in my refrigerator. Hence, the making of mashed potato which I could think of at that point of time. So as to try the cream sauce, in this case.

Grilled Curry Cheese Prawns (Air-Fried)

“Curry with Cheese? Yes. One of the less-usual but the best combinations for a seafood dish.”

Actually this cheesy curry prawn dish could be cooked in various ways (of course), on a grill, in a frying pan, in air-fryer (with its non-stick grill pan), or even in a wok! This time, I chose air-frying. Yes, it was easy, no doubt. Its grill pan made the cooking even easier as it’s non stick. It was easier than having it cooked on the mesh basket. Get one and it would make all your grilling (fish, chicken, meat, etc) much easier.
