Thanksgiving 2018
感謝祭2018年

This was our second year plant-based Thanksgiving. I got a little help from The Herbivous Butcher. Guess what we got? Turducken! I got my collection of vintage (and not so vintage) plates out. It turned out great! Menu: Turducken from The Herbivous Butcher Cornbread with V butter Braised Kale and Lentils Spiced Maple Butternut Squash […]

Swedish V-Meatballs
スエーデン風Vミートボール

Every time I ask my husband what he wants for dinner, he always says “Swedish meatballs.” I knew how much he loves the dish, so it was hard to say “No I can’t make it”. But for the longest time I didn’t think it would be possible to make plant-based Swedish meatballs. But this recipe […]

“East Meet Midwest” Okonomi-Yaki
もっと?モダン焼き

Okonomi-Yaki is a popular savory pancake in Japan. The most used ingredient is cabbage. Other than that you can basically add anything, but the popular ones are pork and squid.

Mmmmm… Roasted Satsuma-Imo
うまっ!焼き芋

Although Japanese cuisine has become pretty popular around the world, there are still so many amazing Japanese foods people are missing out on. One of them is Satsuma-Imo, or Japanese sweet potato. Yes, it’s a personal opinion, but a lot of people who did try it, including my husband, as well as many Japanese people […]

Comin’ Home Baby Cottage Pie
カミン・ホーム・ベイビー・コテージパイ

Cottage pie has the word, “homey”, all over the dish. I’m not English, but I love cottage pie because of it’s the kind of dish I would love to come home for after a long day. The stew inside has lots of things I love, like lentils, cauliflower, and carrots. They were all cooked together […]
