Sunshine Plant Quiche
サンシャインキッシュ

There are many awesome dishes for a weekend brunch. But quiche makes every brunch a bit special. Well, when you have a cool French name like quiche, you get treated a bit special, right? (lol) I don’t make quiche a lot, but I just recently bought a pan that’s perfect for quiche. I found it […]

Rustic Wabi-Sabi Scones
ワビサビ・ざくざくスコーン

I was in the mood for Japanese flavored scones. Made two versions. This one is Kinako (roasted soy bean powder) and black sesame. This one is Matcha almond. I added some whole wheat flour, and the results were pretty rustic-looking, just the way I wanted. They were perfect when served with my homemade plant-based butter. […]

Country Autumn Muffins
オータムごろごろマフィン

Last weekend I made muffins because… I got Baker’s Field‘s flour! Baker’s Field is a local bakers that bake bread AND mill flour for other bakers. When I first tried their bread at Fig and Farro, a vegetarian restaurant, I absolutely loved it. Then I quickly found out that they sell their bread at selected […]

Piled High Breakfast Sandwich
高積み朝食サンドイッチ

When it comes to the sandwich, I’m all for “the higher, the better”. My husband and I used to like to get the sausage breakfast sandwich in the skyway. It was delicious. I’m not a huge fan of “fake meat”, but I liked their sandwich because their vegan sausage was house-made. So when I found […]

Matcha Marble Bread
抹茶ぐるぐるマーブルパン

This was my first attempt to make this type of marble bread. You make a separate Matcha “sheet” first, and then you roll it with regular bread dough to create the marble pattern. This was before going into the oven. Just out of the oven. I was so happy to see the beautiful marbles, because […]

Southern Style Ticken and Waffles
南部風〝ティキン”&ワッフル

Chicken and Waffles is probably the best example of a great sweet-savory dish. To tell you the truth, I’ve never had chicken and waffles in my life, and then I started a plant-based diet. But I was always interested in the concept, and this morning I decided to make my vegan version. If I would […]

Almond Sticks with Double Icing
アーモンドスティック、ダブルアイシングがけ

I did not know how much I liked almonds until my recent trip to Portland. This Almond Ring at Sweetpea Baking Company was one of the best pastries I’ve ever had, and I went to the bakery three times during the three days we had in Portland! My Almond Sticks were created with the inspiration […]

Purple Potato Waffles with Cayenne Walnuts and Bourbon Maple Syrup
紫芋ワッフル、カイエンナッツとバーボンメープルシロップ。

I’m so excited about this post, because there are so many things that I want to talk about. Well, first of all, I want to show off our new waffle maker. I’ve been looking for this heart-type for a while, and it actually took a while to find one. Unexpectedly this type of waffle maker […]

Farmers Market Strawberry Toast
ファーマーズマーケット苺トースト

This is what I’d like to see on my dining table when I wake up on weekends. Well, unfortunately this does not magically appear, so I do have to do some errands first. First, go to a local bakery for freshly baked crusty bread. Next, go to the farmers market. These strawberries I found at […]

J-Style Country Breakfast: Onigiri
田舎めし

I just got back from a two-day trip to Chicago. Love the windy city. It was a short trip, but I ran into the fabulous donut shop where I had one of the best donuts (vegan) ever: Firecakes Donuts. If you visit or live in Chicago, go there! I had dark chocolate donut and it […]
