Celebrate Setsubun with Ehomaki: Lucky Direction Sushi Rolls

A couple of years ago –while Mike and I were living in Tokyo– around the end of January, we started noticing an influx of giant sushi rolls being advertised. It seemed like everywhere we went there were photo ads for uncut sushi rolls. Soon after the ads, we started seeing the actual rolls in convenience […]

Iceland: The Ring Road

Last November Mike and I took a trip to Iceland. It’s a place that we’ve both been wanting to go to for a while and even though we’d been flirting with the idea for ages, we never made the plunge. The end 2015 was when we finally decided to go all in. We spent 12 […]

Gingerbread Corgi Cookies

I know the season of gingerbread is over, but I couldn’t resist making these little gingerbread corgis. I get that gingerbread is associated with Christmas, but I think it’s really a winter cookie; I love the warmth of the spices and fresh gingerbread out of the oven on a cold day can’t be beat.

Honey Garlic Beef Recipe

It’s no secret that I’m a honey garlic fan. I almost feel like I can make honey garlic sauce and dip everything into it. My favorite growing up was honey garlic pork. Even though I was the pickiest kid on the block, I couldn’t resist the sweet and savory combo of honey and meat. Honey […]

Sunday Brunch: Cheesy French Toast Recipe

This is going to be a quickie because I need to pack my heavy winter coat, scarf and beanie: I’m heading to Minneapolis for a quick trip. I’m kind of excited because I’ve heard so many awesome things. But I’m also kind of scared of the weather. It does look like there’s going to be […]

Friday Finds: 1.22.16

Happy Friday Friends! Mike and I just came back from a little getaway – we went to the tip of an island in the Pacific Northwest where there was nothing but ocean and sand and trees. The internet was spotty at best, which made me realize that I am completely addicted to it…oops? I’m going […]

Miso Hummus with Crispy Onion Furikake

Yesterday was Vacuum V(W)endsdays, the day that I try to vacuum the house. I don’t always end up vacuuming on Wednesdays but I find it helps to have a dedicated day because otherwise who knows how long it might be between vacuum sessions. Mike and I actually had a whole conversation about the whole frequency of […]

Flourless Pistachio Almond Loaf

I made this little loaf last week, on a whim. I was feeling a loaf craving and wanted something moist and just a little bit dense. Basically, I wanted the opposite of light and airy. I wanted a loaf with substance and pistachios. I was going to riff off of my almond lemon loaf but I […]

Ahi Tuna Poke Quinoa Bowl

Confession: I’ve never been to Hawaii. I feel like I’ve been to quite a lot of places in the world, but for some reason I never made it to Hawaii. I don’t know why because I feel like I would fit right in. Hawaiians are known for their love for spam and I love spam! They grow […]

Cheddar Cheese Cauliflower Tots

Yesterday Mike and I went on a green onion hunt. For some reason Sundays are not the day to buy green onions. I guess Mondays are the days that stores restock? Anyway, at first, we were at this little Japanese market and I was going to buy some Tokyo negi, which is kind of like a […]
