Spicy Tangy Peanut-ty West African Stew

It’s been a cold or wet winter, alternating between dry days with highs in the 30s and balmy 40+F torrential downpours. Last week’s rides were in 29F windchill so needless to say it’s been soupfest and stewvana at Chez Gekiuma.

Roasted Tomato Sauce By Way Of Sicily

Despite the golden sunlight streaming through my window, summer has faded off into the distance and fall is here to stay. Normally I’d be in a melancholy state bemoaning the lack of dry pavement to go tearing down steep descents

Tequila-Lime Copper River Salmon

One of the many perks of living in the Pacific NW is the surfeit of amazing fresh seafood throughout the year but my favorite part of the year is the regrettably brief few weeks it’s Copper River salmon season. Summer

Beer Battered Halibut Cheeks

I swear we really don’t eat fried foods that often but I’ve been having a craving for fish and chips and when I found fresh, never frozen halibut cheeks at the fishmonger’s I took it as a sign. If you’ve

豆腐じゃが: “Meat” & Potatoes, The Tofu Version

The hubby and I had very different childhoods but for some reason we have very similar tastes in food and my comfort food has become his comfort food. While it’s true that I do make ~80% of the food that

Aloha Loco Moco

When you’re stupid enough to do the Pihea to Alakai Swamp trail (cuz it’s normal to find swamps at 4000 ft, right?) with a brief stop at the Kilohana lookout on your second day in paradise while it’s raining you’d

菜食主義者野菜焼きそば: Vegetarian Yakisoba

My oven remains MIA for an indefinite period. Apparently the igniter needs to be replaced but as the fates would have it, the manufacturer is out of stock and they don’t know when they’ll have more or how long it
