Cakes lately



Tuesday February 21, 2017



I am baking many cakes lately.

The most recent cake is the one I baked yesterday for the cooking class. One of the participants has a birthday today and his wife sent him to my cooking class as her birthday gift. So sweet. So touching. And I was so grateful.

I baked a cake for him and we shared it after we sang a happy birthday song for him and he looked very surprised! 🙂

I love surprise birthday parties. 🙂
with good food and good friends.



I would like to attend a cake/baking class in Paris to brush up my cake-baking and decoration skills this summer, the class is intended to teach semi-pros and experienced home bakers who enjoy making fancy cakes with elegant decorations for adult.  There are no such class in Oslo and I am not so far away from Paris. The class will be taught in french, of course…, and you know my french language level is not so high… but it will be fun if I can have the opportunity.

Maybe my husband will send me to the class as his birthday gift?
I do have a birthday in summer!! 🙂

My cakes lately all had good fruits on top.
Specially I liked these Blood Oranges from Spain. Gosh, they are so good!




There will be more photos of my cakes on this blog soon!

Hangetsu Tamago – My cooking video on YouTube channel



About a week ago, I wrote on my Facebook page :
“Hi, This is called Hangetsu Tamago in Japanese, it literally means Halfmoon Egg. It is almost like an over medium fried egg  but we cut it in half for bento. Would you like to learn how to make this by a video? I like to see if some people will be interested in such tutorial video.”

Then, there came many good YES’s.

I like to keep my promise and today I made the video.
You can watch it on my YouTube channel :

I wanted to do an egg dish, as eggs are easy to buy in many countries and this dish does not require any special ingredients or long cooking time. If you are allergic or restricted from eating eggs, I am sorry, I will try to give you some other kinds of videos later.


As there will be some more videos coming later, please do subscribe the channel. Then you will get an email notification when a new video is uploaded. You will be one of the first one to watch!!

Have a good day!



Fried Egg in Bento


This blog post is also available in Japanese.


I love a fried egg in my bento!

I like it since I was a little girl. I like Tamagoyaki too in my bento but I eat fried eggs more often at my breakfast both with bread or rice. My mom used to put a fried egg on curry rice, we had it on our Hambagu for dinner.  In Japan some people like to put soy sauce or Worcester sauce but I prefer just salt and pepper. What do you like to season your fried egg with?

Both my husband and my daughter also like a fried egg in their bento!



For a round bento box, I make a round fried egg!




In a square box, I put a square fried egg.




I love a soft half-cooked fried egg. I break the yolk and mix with the rice. Hmmmm…. yummy!




I made a fried egg in Japan, the yolk was very orange and the white was very silky.




Do you like fried eggs?
