10 photos

I started doing this back in 2008, it is a nice way to look back at the year, through 10 adventures in my kitchen...

1. Untitled Dashi Chazuke, perfect for these cold mornings.

2. Untitled I discovered that adding nagaimo to okonomiyaki helps to puff it up.

3. Untitled Anchovy Potato Salad, trying to re-create something we've never really had but saw on social media...

4. green tea pork belly rolls, drizzle ponzu & lots of cabbage❤︎  #greentea #porkbelly #ponzu #springcabbage #osaka #japan #お茶 #豚バラ #春キャベツ #大阪 #ポン酢 Green Tea Pork Belly Rolls, a new way to eat the used green tea.

5. hoping this turns out tasty❤︎  #daikon #sakura #tsukemono #pickles #osaka #japan #大根 #桜 #漬物 #ピクルス #大阪 Sakura Daikon, is a nice way to incorporate salted sakura (cherry blossoms) and daikon (radish) into a unique tsukemono (pickle).

6. the recipe that came with the ume said to freeze the fruit for at least 24 hours, so after cleaning them, I froze them. today I added them to bottles and "layered" in the rock sugar...7 days to ume syrup and then I'll make jam with the fruit...exciting:pr Our first time making Ume Syrup, easy and delicious!

7. 3 generations: grandma’s italian delight recipe, mom’s version with macaroni, my addition of fresh maitake❤︎ ・ ・ ・ #bakedpasta #italiandelight #comfortfood #osaka #japan #ベークドパスタ #大阪 #舞茸 #グラタン #maitake #macaroni Over the summer we reconnected with Italian Delight...definitely comfort food...

8. Untitled Saba Tofu Curry, a nice way to boost your good cholesterol.

9. adapted version of @heidijswanson ‘s winter rainbow gratin❤︎ ・ ・ ・ #heidiswanson #supernaturalcooking #winterrainbow #gratin #sweetpotato #eggplant #carrot #purpleonion #swisschard #kale #maitake #radish #osaka #japan #野菜 #薩摩芋 #なす #人参 #スイスシャード #ケール This recipe for Winter Gratin, was an easy and nice way to get in some veggies

10. Untitled Cold Brew Tea Soda, a really easy way to have a fizzy tea drink during those hot summer months...just be careful when you open the bottle.
