【Life Hack!】For those who like using butter in cooking or for baking, don't you hate to wash the greasy knife (and sometimes fingers) after slicing a block butter?

By using an extra item you have in the kitchen, you can now cut your butter, completely grease-free!! I learnt this cooking hack from Japanese TV and I use it to cut butter every time. Watch to find out!

Let me know if you find this useful 😋
Today's #lazymamacookinghack is rice pot dish again! Takikomigohan angmoh style 😬 - Butter rice with Hokkaido corn and sausage. 7 types of vegetables: carrot, onion, corn, piman in rice, and cabbage, tomato, potato in soup.

1. Dice carrot, piman, onion, sausage, and Hokkaido corn (canned). Add to rice in rice pot.

2. Add 1 tablespoon of chicken stock (for every cup of rice) and a block of butter.
3. Press button.

That's all!

Side dish:
1. Minestrone soup from a pack - just pour out 😅. 2. Chicken Katsu tapao'ed from Teppei. Microwave and squeeze mayo on top.

3. 🍓. Share with me if you have any One Pot Wonder hack. We all need it for a busy day (or every day 😬). #cheesiemade
Yesterday's #lazymamacookinghack - my favorite One Pot Wonder, 一锅熟Takikomigohan again, instant miso soup and 🍓. Only a quick fry and one button press - 7 types of vegetables (hijiki, carrot, bamboo shoot, broccoli, edamame in rice, eggplant and negi in miso soup) and 2 types of protein (pork and fried beancurd)in one meal!
1. Fry thin-sliced pork (I use fatty pork belly for super umami!) with sesame oil until half cooked.
2. Add hijiki (pre-soaked in water for 5mins), chopped carrot, bamboo shoot (packed), unused broccoli stem from previous meal and fry together. If you don't like eating the stem but throwing away is quite a waste, you can cook it this way!
3. Add shoyu, mirin, sake and salt or dashi powder if you prefer a more flavorful taste.
4. Pour ingredients on top of rice in rice cooker (don't mix).
5. Cook rice.
6. Serve and add edamame (from frozen).
7. Pour hot water over miso soup and serve.

【Swipe for recipe】Today's #lazymamacookinghack: Garlic Butter Salmon Rice, Daikon Steak, Ebi Mayo Broccoli and Hokkaido Melon. 🍈
1.Garlic Butter Salmon Rice - mix a spoon of barley (optional), add water, 1 tablespoon of shoyu, sake, butter, and minced garlic (I use granules, super convenient), and sliced salmon to rice in rice cooker, cook as usual. It's ready in 1 hour! Garnish with Shiso leaves.
2. Daikon Steak - slice daikon, stab it all over with a fork, add a pinch of rice (important! It will bring out the sweetness of daikon), add water and microwave for 6 minutes in a heat-safe container . Pat it dry and coat it lightly with flour, and pan-fry in olive oil. Add Yakiniku sauce before turning the heat off. Super yummy!
3. Ebi Mayo Broccoli - simply fry shrimps and broccoli (microwaved for 40 seconds) with mayo or if you like, mentaiko mayo.
4. Hokkaido Melon - cut and enjoy hehehe.🍈
Salmon is a staple in our home but the kids didn't really like the chunky/dry texture of it so cooking it together with rice makes it super easy to eat!
Lunch today is soymilk udon, a favorite repeat at home which I think is super simple and healthy.

1. Dice chicken fillet (optional: marinate overnight with 塩麹shiokoji), coat it lightly with corn starch.
2. Boil 300ml water in a pot with a pack of dashi (or you can use chicken stock) with chopped negi (leek). Add chicken slices.
3. Remove dashi pack once chicken is cooked and turn to low heat then add 300ml of soy milk without reaching boiling point (to keep the texture smooth and milky). Serve with udon, fresh negi, sesame seed and blanched beansprout. I add 辣油 (chili oil) for adult version.

A day like this, just cheat as much as you can. Today's #lazymamacookinghack dinner: 6 types of vegetables in one meal!
1. Takikomigohan - just throw cut vegetables (broccoli, eringi mushroom, bamboo shoot) and diced chicken into the rice cooker and cook together with rice, dashi and shoyu. 45 minutes later you have a meal!!!
2. Simmered daikon ankake with asari- just cook daikon with clams (canned) with dashi, add corn starch and green peas at the end.
3. Hijiki and soy bean side dish: from an instant pack I got from Meidiya for $2 (nearing expiry date).
In case you are wondering if Sakura can finish that much food, that's for her oniichan hehe.

This picture is to remind the future me, whenever in doubt, that I was once, the Top Parenting Influencer. Because honestly, sometimes I don't feel like one. Especially on a day like today, I am just someone whose energy is sapped after spending half an hour cleaning up spilled detergent all over the floor and have lost her temper at her elder child, yet whose house still looks like a tornado aftermath and who is now typing this looking like a completely deranged woman with crap hair.
The woman in this picture is mocking me. But she also reminds me that I could be her again. I always can, and always will try.

Thank you @influenceasia for keeping this trophy for me. I was quite sad that I could not attend the award show as I was away in Japan. So two days ago I finally picked this trophy up and had a replacement shiok-sendiri selfie photoshoot. To serve as a little nice reminder.

Thank you, everyone. Thank you for being here.

🍚: Matsutake Japanese mixed Rice
🌸: Sakura Siew Mai
🌱: Sakura ebi spinach namul
🥕: Carrot mariné with walnut and olive oil
🐰: Bunny Kamaboko
🍲: Color麩 Instant Matsutake Clear Soup (HAHA sorry can't resist Japanese pun)
Today's #lazymamacookinghack points:
1.Matsutake (松茸) is the Japanese equivalent of black truffle. Very rare and expensive. Loooove the flavor! Both the rice and soup use instant stock so it's cheap and fast! 😜
2.Today I saw on TV that microwave heated vegetables have more vitamin preserved compared to boiling/blanching!
So I microwaved the spinach, super fuss-free and time-saving!
The pink siew mai (I anyhow named it Sakura siew mai haha🌸) is wrapped with shredded kamaboko🍥, which I bought during my trip to Ehime Prefecture.❤︎(*´∇`*)

5 types of vegetables! ☆🐙
☆Sakura ebi
☆Button mushroom
☆Cherry tomato

Really not trying to bluff but the best Takoyaki in Singapore is probably from CheesieKitchen™. What magic is this Takoyaki flour thing?!? With this thing how is it possible to make bad Takoyaki?! I find it hard to believe that bad Takoyaki still exists. Any noob with this flour can open a Takoyaki shop. I'm not kidding.
Ingredients we use:
☆Takoyaki flour 200g (brand: Ohmy, from Meidiya)
☆egg x2
☆Chopped cabbage
☆Sakura Ebi
☆Pizza cheese
☆Toppings like sea salt, negi, mayo. I don't really like Takoyaki sauce so I did without.
Oh and one last secret ingredient: Tenkasu - crunchy batter bits (basically the unwanted bits floating around when you fry tempura lol). It gives a crunchy texture to the Takoyaki!
I don't even like Takoyaki but I think I'll have another Takoyaki party again very soon 😂.
