Today: teriyaki chicken, mushrooms, pineapple, and paprika. Trying to get some more veg into my diet, so I bought a bottle of teriyaki sauce, 700g of small-sliced chicken, 6 large mushrooms, a can of pineapple chunks, and a paprika.

Chicken: fry in a deep pan in copious teriyaki souce (I spilled in half the bottle oops) with a lid until done.

Mushrooms: remove stems and chop into 4 one way and 2 the other way, then fry in teriyaki sauce for some time, then dump onto the chicken in the other pan. I managed to magically guess the absolute correct time and got the most perfectest mushrooms ever. I think I fried on both sides so that it was all teriyaki-color and not white? idk.

Paprika: chop up only half of it because you are a disorganized mess (chunk size about the same as mushroom slice size), then toss in with a new batch of teriyaki sauce into the pan recently vacated by the mushrooms.

Pineapple: drain the chunks (mine were in juice, so I drained it into a glass) and then toss in with the paprika because you're hungry and just want for food to be ready dammit. Maybe add teriyaki sauce if there's a lack of it. Fry until they look like they might be coated and then some. Dump paprika and pineapple onto the chicken, too.

End result: chicken's decent, mushrooms are amazing, paprika and pineapple are a bit sweet – inbuilt dessert of sorts. I served mine over fullgrain rice noodles, which didn't really work – I think this'd need something more along the lines of glass noodles. I'll try leftovers on long-grain rice tomorrow.

Oh, and I think I generated 3 4 portions. (3 me-portions, that is. I eat like a horse. 4 other-people portions?)

EDIT: It's much better over rice!

Doing meme 4 from here.

What is your favorite recipe and why?
I do have a recipes tag, but my favorite is actually one for making salsa sauce, because it's easy enough to make and will feed me for a week. I HATE cooking, so I appreciate only having to do the bare minimum of it. Where's my robot chef? Cooking and cleaning is such a colossal bother.

slice of cake

More stuff that's delicious and should be shared to the world! Egg-free, milk-free, and can be made gluten-free.

4 dl flour (I used 1 dl spelt and 3 dl gluten-free, since that's what I had in the cupboard)
3 dl sugar
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp vanilla sugar
2½ dl orange juice
½ dl oil (or 50 g margarine)
145 g chocolate, chopped
(optional: dark cocoa powder to taste)

Mix all the dry ingredients, then add the liquids and mix well. Bake at 175°C for ~20 min (start checking at 12 min). Let cool.

For the decoration/topping, we first covered it in blackberry jam (home-made, so just blackberries and a bit of sugar, probably counts as a purée) and then 290 g of molten chocolate, after which we set some whole blackberries on top as decoration.

The greatest dessert known to Finns must be brought to the Anglosphere's consciousness! Look at them:

Using my mother's recipe, originally probably modded from something in Allergikon keittokirja (title might not be correct).

If you're like me and use an oven tray, multiply all quantities of ingredients by three.
