Onion Omelette

Years ago, when I was overseas for a course, this simple, humble dish brought me straight home - onion omelette.  This gave me the taste of home while I was thousands of kilometres away, it reminded me of Mum cooking in the kitchen each day, making sure we kids had the best food ever...

Onion Omelette

Eggs, beated
Red onions, sliced

  1. Heat up a little cooking oil in a pan, then add onions and fry until slightly translucent and fragrant.
  2. Pour cooked onions into beaten egg and mix well.
  3. Pour egg mixture into pan and cook for a while, flip over and cook a little while more and the omelette is ready to be served!

Honey Cinnamon Popcorn

Honey Cinnamon Popcorn
I love sweet popcorn!  Whenever I go to the movies, it has to be SWEET popcorn, not the salty ones.  This is a really quick snack which is really fun for kids, and they get to eat it too :)

To make the popcorn, I heated up some oil in a pot, then added about 1/4 cup of popcorn kernels.  How do you know when the oil is hot enough? Try adding 1 or 2 kernels to test first before adding the whole load in.  Remember to cover the pot with a lid, leaving a tiny gap for hot air to escape.  In a few minutes, you should have a whole pot of freshly popped popcorn!

For something a little special, melt a little butter in a pan, add honey and a little cinnamon powder and mix well.  Spread popcorn on an aluminium foil lined tray, pour honey sauce over the popcorn and mix well.  Spread the popcorn into a single layer and bake for a few minutes in the oven at about 180 degrees Celsius.
