Sesame grilled chicken and stir-fried asparagus with wild mushrooms plus dessert!

Used several recipes from the book I bought a few months back. Since I have very little cooking experience, I chose the easy-to-do-recipes.

1. Sesame Grilled Chicken
What you need:
Boneless chicken breast
Lots and lots of garlic
2tbsp soy sauce

What you do:
Marinate chicken in soy sauce and garlic
Combine sesame and grapeseed oil and grill chicken (3-4 minutes per side)

2. Steamed asparagus with stir-fried mushroom
What you need:

Salt, pepper, 1 tsp garlic, and extra virgin olive oil

What you do:
Clean the mushrooms appropriately

Stir-fry the mushrooms in EVOO
Add garlic and 1 tbsp rice wine or water and wait for 2 minutes

Microwave (steam) asparagus in water with salt for 2 minutes

Combine the mushrooms with asparagus

Serve with:
Brown rice --cook in rice cooker! :)

3. Dessert
This, I think, was too much to ask from me so my sister just brought out the
Cara Mia Banana Blast ice cream cake
Nomnomnom. All in all, my first attempt to cook real food was a success. Yey!


  1. Hahaha! I love the part when your sister whipped out the ice cream cake! :)

    Good job S! Hope to taste your cooking one of these days!

  2. Wowow!!! I need to try cooking real food, too! :D

  3. @Nin, thanks thanks. hihi. I'm not yet that confident with my cooking, so I'm gonna practice some more and then maybe we can cook together :> haha.

    @Ishna I had fun cooking! If you're a newbie at cooking, like me, there are lots of good beginner's cookbooks in bookstores and free recipes ONLINE! :)

  4. Congratulations! It looks all sorts of yummy :) I just cooked bacon for the first time yesterday. And that's really embarrassing to admit. You're steps ahead of me!
