I started doing this back in 2008 as a meme, and now I think it is a great way to take a peek at some of the highlights over the year from my kitchen...
Kale with Orange Miso Sesame Dressing
Re-creating this salad was fun and delicious.
It was my first time making these and even though it took some time, I'm glad I tried making these.
Japanese Cole Slaw
I had been wanting to try making Japanse cole slaw with purple cabbage and I'm glad I did.
This version is much more colorful and tasty too.
With all the scones I have posted on the blog, these were the first matcha(green tea) ones.
Black Sesame Pancakes
Adapted from a book that Dennis introduced me to, changing the recipe to fit what we had in our pantry didn't change the deliciousness of them.
Magurozuke Avocado Donburi
This dish was simple and fast, and it got a thumbs up from Satoshi.
These were delicious, but they didn't freeze too well.
I think if you freeze them they should be done before you fry them.
After frying them and then freezing them, they were really greasy...eep!
A great way to use up somen in your pantry.
Marinated Sanma Salad
Re-creating this salad was tasty and the marinated sanma and mushrooms make great pupus (appetizers).
Zippy's Fresh Strawberry Summer Salad
A perfect combination of sweet and sour, this salad is great whenever strawberries are in season.
