Today and tomorrow will be a turn for drinks!

Here's two recipes for cold drinks that can be drank in good company (don't get me wrong, these don't contain alcohol)!


-3 deciliters of water
-2 tablespoons of tealeaves or 3 teabags
-7 deciliters of cold water
- deciliters of sugar
-the juice of 1 lemon or 2 tablespoons of lemon concentrate
-ice cubes

1. Boil the 3 deciliters of water. Add the tealeaves or teabags and simmer for 5 minutes.

2. Strain the drink into a serving pot (or whatever you want to use to serve it). Add the sugar, cold water and the lemon juice. Cool the drink with ice cubes.

Fruity punch

For 8

-5 deciliters of applejuice
-5 deciliters of lemon flavored soft drink (Sprite for example)
-5 deciliters of mineral water
- can (200 grams) of fruit cocktail (with its juice)
-1-2 kiwis
-ice cubes

1. Peel the kiwis and cut them to thin slices.

2. Put the kiwi slices and the fruit cocktail in the bottom of a big glass bowl (or you can use something else to serve it). Pour the apple juice on the fruits. Add the soft drink, mineral water and ice cubes right before serving.


Tomorrow we'll have a few recipes for warm drinks: chocolate-moccha, caf au lait and hot chocolate/cocoa!

"He who eats alone chokes alone."

So when you eat/cook/bake, do it with friends! A good mood and laughter always gives the food a better taste! ^^

Happy cooking!

P.S. kaisap112 will be offline next week, so Angel Zakuro will take over then!

Alright, this day's recipe is lactose-free as well as gluten-free, so people who have lactose intolerance or celiac disease can make this too!

Americans have to convert the recipe, since it's in Finnish standards. Sorry!

Apple-rice porridge (apple-rice pudding)

-2-3 apples
-1 liter of water
-1 dl (deciliters) of porridge rice
-4 tablespoons of sugar
-(2 cinnamon sticks, optional)

1. Core, peel and chop the apples.

2. Add the rice, apples and cinnamon sticks in the boiling water.

3. Boil the porridge on mild heat about half an hour and remember to stir it every once in a while. Remove the cinnamon sticks.

4. Add the sugar. Serve the porridge as a dessert (though I see nothing wrong with serving it as breakfast etc.).


Happy cooking!

Today we have a tasty recipe from rethguals!

Caramel Corn

-1 cup butter (it'd be better if you use this instead of margarine)
-2 cups light brown sugar
-1/2 cup light corn syrup
-1 teaspoon salt
-1/2 teaspoon baking soda
-1 teaspoon vanilla
-2 batches popcorn
-1 jar dry roasted peanuts (optional)

1. Melt the butter, stir in brown sugar, corn syrup, and salt.

2. Bring mixture to boil; boil hard for 5 min without stirring. Remove from heat, add baking soda and vanilla. Stir quickly and pour over popcorn and mix well.

3. Bake in a roaster for 1 hour at 250 degree oven. Every 15-20 min., remove from oven and stir to mix evenly.

4. (Optional) Remove from oven and spread on absorbent paper to cool.


Alright, we're still looking for new members and new recipes!

Also, Mami-chan, I'd like to ask you to re-PM your recipes, they disappeared when your other site did. ^^'

And I've decided to start posting articles about food now! I was thinking of posting one every Saturday or so.

If you'd like to read an article about something specific, you can suggest a subject in the comment box! And if you have an article of your own (or you want to write one), PM us! ^^

Happy cooking!

Today's recipe is provided by mamamialoo!

Hungry Man's Macaroni

For 4

-1 pound ground beef,fresh or frozen
-2 teaspoons olive oil
-1 large onion (for about 1 cup chopped)
-1 medium-size green bell pepper (for about 1 cup chopped)
-2 cloves fresh garlic, minced, or 2 teaspoons bottled minced garlic
-1 can (14 ounces) fat-free chicken broth, or 2 cups homemade chicken stock
-2 cups bottled spaghetti sauce
-8 ounces short pasts, such as elbow macaroni
-1/4 cup shredded or grated Parmesan cheese, or more if you want to.

Now, here is how you make it:

1. If the beef is frozen, run it under hot water so you can remove the packaging. Place the beef on a microwave-safe plate and microwave,uncovered on high power for 3 min. to partially defrost.

2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in an extra-deep 12-inch skiller over medium heat. Peel and coarsely chop the onion, adding it to the skillet as you chop. (Be careful,make sure you have an adult help you) Add the beef (fresh or partialy defrosted) and cook,turning and breaking up the meat, until it begins to crumble and brown, 5-6 minutes. Drain any fat from the beef, if necessary.

3. Stem, seed and coarsely chop the bell pepper, adding it to the skillet as you chop. Add the garlic to the skillet.

4. Add the broth, spaghetti sauce and pasta. Stir until well mixed. Cover the skillet and bring the mixture to a boil. Cook at a moderate boil, stirring occasionally, until the pasta is just tender, about 10 minutes. (Cook 2 minutes more for softer pasta) Serve at once, with how much parmesan cheese you want!

This will serve about 4 people and from start to finish it takes UNDER 25 MINUTES!!


There was a question about banana ice-cream. I'm not sure if they have it in the US, but in Finland they have it. Or rather, fruit-flavored ice-creams.

So if you have any questions regarding the recipes, tips, articles etc. just put them in the comment box and we try to answer them as well as we can!

All the recipes I have are in Finnish standards (liters, kilograms etc.) and I try to convert them to American standards as best as I can.

I think we might wanna start with something easy and good, and what would be better on a summerday than milkshake! ^^

Strawberry Milkshake

For 2


-1 cup of strawberries
-1 cup of vanilla ice-cream
-1 cups of milk
-1-2 tablespoons of sugar

1. Chop the strawberries and the ice-cream and move them into a bowl.

2. Add milk and sugar.

3. Mix the ingredients with a mixer or a handblender.

4. Pour the drink in glasses.


This recipe is easily variated. You can use different ice-cream, fruits, berries etc. For example, use chocolate ice-cream and chocolate chips, and you have good chocolate milkshake!

This milkshake is not the same kind of milkshake you can buy from a store, but it's still good!


I recommend not using bananas on this milkshake recipe. It doesn't mix that well with the other ingredients. If you want banana milkshake, I recommend using banana ice-cream or those banana baby-foods, or both! ^^

Have fun and enjoy the milkshake!
