I don’t know how it happened. Another year slipped by right out from under me and I’m not 100% sure I was fully conscious for parts of it.  Like summer.  I don’t think I had a real summer. The cool summer weather in Southern California was much more recognizable as Fall or Winter than of […]

Every year, I host a Christmas brunch or dinner for a few of my girlfriends.  This Christmas season seems to have gotten away from me and left me feeling a little under the weather.  I decided that quick and easy was the way to go. One thing that was ridiculously easy but so tasty was […]

I had the most amazing Agedashi Dofu the other night. My friend’s [Fuyumi] mom is an incredible Japanese cook so when Mrs H asked me if I’d like to help out at a dinner she was hosting, I jumped at the chance. One thing to note about Japanese Cuisine is that it is very labor […]
