I’m really lazy to make any cakes lately, but realizing I bought too many eggs from the States and have to use it somehow.  Then I came across this recipe which I can triple the original recipe and use exactly the one block of cream cheese in my fridge.  It will make two 7 inches round cheesecake.  Please don’t reduce more sugar, as I have reduced from 270 gm sugar down to only 1 cup and a bit more sugar.

It tastes like a sweet moist chiffon cake with a little cream cheese flavor instead of heavy egg flavor.   All people who tasted the cake liked it.  Um… but I’m still going to try out another recipe which calls for whipping cream and involves more steps, just because the picture looks so much more appealing:

Anyways, back to my first Japanese cheesecake, here’s the recipe I used as requested by my colleagues:

I never like making sushi at home, as there are so many good and authentic restaurants in Vancouver.  Another reason was my mom had me roll sushi for house parties when I was a teenager, and I treated it like chore.  At that time was very simple, only imitation crab, cucumber, yellow pickle and that’s it.

Ahi Tuna


After listening to Chef Alex from radio about a supermarket in Washington that sells inexpensive grocery, I visited this store on Black Friday this year.

It was truly a paradise for me.  I was so excited during my short visit at this grocery supermarket.  Many items are way cheaper than in Vancouver, especially cheese product.  It was recommended to buy dairy products and fish there.  Thus I bought two Ahi Tuna steaks (they are so cheap, you won’t believe it).  It’s my first time ever making Ahi Tuna.  I made the first steak with a Japanese taste.  Hopefully I will find another recipe to make the second steak that’s still sitting in my freezer.
