かぼちゃの煮物と蕎麦: Kabocha Squash Simmered in Dashi with Soba Noodles

焼きそば: Any Day Is A Good Day For Yakisoba

Quick & Dirty Soy Sauce Steamed Baby Bok Choy

Sometimes I’m crunched for time or too tired to do anything but steam some veggies for a side dish. Yes, it’s true, I take short cuts! And truthfully, if you choose the right veggies to steam, it tastes like you’ve

鮭の照り焼き Savory-Sweet Salmon Teriyaki
