竹の子ご飯: Nothing Says Spring Like Bamboo Shoot Mixed Rice

It’s been perfect cycling weather with highs in the 70s and gorgeous cerulean blue skies. Spring is here. I love reverse engineering recipes and after some fascinating conversations of her delectable gastronomic tour of Tokyo with Thai cuisine guru Miranti,

Spring Heat Waves & Ahi Tuna Avocado Poke

Although the vernal equinox occurred a week ago and our Hawaiian tans have long since faded, there’s nothing like a brief heat wave (It’s been in the 70s but more importantly, what’s that bright disc in the sky?) and a

銀鱈のかば焼き: Black Cod With Kabayaki Sauce

While I enjoy the savory-sweet flavors of うな丼 (unadon) or grilled freshwater eel brushed with かば焼き (kabayaki), that addicting sweet soy sauce-based glaze, eel is off the menu for us. It’s really being overfished cuz young eels at the glass

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

Miso-Blood Orange Glazed Salmon

The blood oranges have been seducing me with their siren song. Sweeter than other orange varieties with a deep ruby hue so how could I resist when even Odysseus had to be tied to a mast to resist their allure?

Broiled Asparagus With Balsamic Vinaigrette & Shaved Parmesan

Sometimes the hubster has to remind me I forget that just because something is embarrassingly easy doesn’t mean that it isn’t any less delicious or blog-worthy. This quick sort-of-salad side dish is a great way to welcome spring with all

Lasagne Bolognese With Spinach Pesto

One of my favorite cold weather foods is lasagne. There’s something so satisfying about the entire experience: aromatic herbs wafting up from your plate, a savory, meaty tomato sauce with pockets of sweetness from not so hidden carrots, tender carby

Zesty Lemon Blueberry Cake Cookies

I’ve said it before and it bears repeating. Baking is chemistry. Change a few key ingredients or even adjust a ratio or two and you’ve got a bird of a completely different feather. Whenever we wing our way south for

Farfalle With Sausage & Vegetable Ragú

Sometimes I think my freezer is a repository for UFOs, unidentified frozen objects. Periodically, I go through a ruthless cleansing rampage and find gelid surprises, like gluten-free Brazilian cheese bread (?!) to frostbitten mango chunks to mystery meat from the

肉じゃが: Hearty Yet Light Japanese Meat & Potatoes?

Like many people, after weathering the cold and hectic frenzy the winter holiday season seems to bring into our lives (not to mention the additional celebratory poundage), I feel the need to eat something hearty and belly-warming but not coma
