When Tomato-geddon Strikes Make Cherry Tomato Jam

October may be just around the corner but don’t tell that to my overachieving Sungolds, they’re still running riot over the sunny patch of garden fondly dubbed Tomatoworld. These sweet, juicy, orangey little cherry tomatoes have pretty much taken over

塩鮭のお握り: Shiozake Salted Salmon Onigiri

I find that the times I’m by myself I eat very simply. Part of it is that I’m a social eater and when the hubby’s off conferencing and schmoozing I only eat when I’m hungry and tend to crave flavorful

Spicy Crispy Pork-y Stir-Fry

This dish is a play on 닭강정 (dalgangjeong or dakgangjeong), that irresistible Korean snack food delicacy of spicy, savory, sweet, crispety, gingery fried chicken. I’ve used boneless country-style pork ribs cuz we lurrve pork but chicken would also work well
