I’m looking into making some bento lunches this year as I head back to school and found this recipe for one of my favourite side items in japanese cuisine so I had to share :) I can taste the crunchy daikon already!
Little Japan Mama also has awesome recipes for other Japanese food (okonomiyaki anyone?) so make sure to check it out if you’re looking to get started in this realm of cuisine!
Just made this delicious galette - the ingredients are quite simple (and in season right now!) that I’d recommend for anyone to give it a try. It’s much easier to make than a pie, in terms of aesthetics at least, and tastes just as good/better!
I used this as my pie crust recipe (halved for 1 galette) and will definitely be reusing it :)
Here’s a picture of my galette (not the prettiest thing ever I know, but so delicious):

Just made this delicious spiced chicken with mango salsa for dinner tonight - definitely a redo for the future :)
Also had a go at these garlicky baked fries, which also turned out fantastic (this is pretty rare for me, having double success in trying new recipes). Even the boy agreed that they were the best home fries ever!
UPDATE: the soup turned out quite delicious (although the boy didn’t like it because he just isn’t a fan of soup). On the other hand, we didn’t like the crispy kale at all. I think some of the recipe sites oversold it, being all like “It tastes like potato chips!”, which it didn’t. Oh well, you win some & you throw out the rest into the compost.
Dinner Tonight: White Anchovy, Ruby Red Grapefruit, Scallion, Pepper, Pecan Oil
Simple things are about all I can manage these days. Fortunately, this is five ingredients and smashed with flavor.
It’s from Hugh Acheson’s “A New Turn in the South” cookbook. I got it for Christmas, and he even signed it for me. I love that he has a sense of humor about the unibrow.
Anyway, this is delicious and takes about 10 minutes.
This is going to be tomorrow night’s dinner. Or maybe tuesday’s if I feel like jambalaya tomorrow :D
