5 Bento, Side dish, and Snack recipes with Pork loin and Water

Marshmallows for hot drinks

While the standard marshmallows are cooked to be large and sturdy on their own, the ones for hot drinks should be creamy and melting easily. Try my recipe, although similar to the basic one, to enjoy beautiful and tasty hot drinks marshmallows! :-)

Whole-grain bread rolls

There are not many things that can beat the whole grain bread, unless it's 8 delicious little whole grain breadrolls ;-) These are perfect for breakfast, and you can easily prepare and bake them in one evening, for e.g. Sunday breakfast! :-)

My fool-proof recipe will be a great fun, and a good addition to your baking arsenal.


Oh my, that is one of my most favorite recipes — who doesn't love these spongy, almost weightless little cubes of sweetness?! With my super simple recipe you will (quite literally) whip up some of them in no time!


Easy: 5 steps, less than a minute

When you make your own pasta, you will always end up with some scraps, even more if you make ravioli. You can easily recycle this leftover pasta to make maltagliati, meaning "poorly cut" in Italian, which was traditionally meant as food for the poor. We are way past that, and today you can enjoy rich texture and amazing flavor of your pasta without the social stigma ;-)

Teriyaki pork strips with shallots bento

This simple recipe requires only 3 ingredients: sliced pork loin (already mentioned minute steaks or easy steaks), shallots and teriyaki sauce. It's also one of the lazy recipes — part of it you can prepare evening before, and finish it quickly before serving or packing your bento box. Plus, marinating for a long time allows increased flavors to transfer easily across the meat!
