About me

I grew up in Sacramento and currently live in the Bay Area. I've lived in LA, the midwest, the east coast, and Japan as well. My tastes are pretty broad, and I'm doing my best to pass that on to my four children. So far so good. They eat a variety of meat, fish, vegetable, rice and pasta dishes. Still, I don't get to cook with as much spice as I used to unless I make a separate dish for my husband and me.

Cooking Influences

I grew up in a large extended Japanese family. My father is also a big time hunter and fisherman. So I grew up with a lot of rice, fish, teriyaki, steak, duck, and a variety of traditional japanese dishes. I still love to cook these, and because most japanese dishes are slightly sweet and not spice, our kids love them. I'll be putting up the family recipes for tonkatsu, donburri, sukiyaki, and many more when I have time!

                      I think we've got a lot in common. Just in your top five I see three of my favourite foods - jalapenos, cilantro and thai basil chicken! To die for. Thanks for the add back :) I look forward to trying your stuff!

                        I really don't know how this site works. I left a note elsewhere thanking you for remarks regarding the Thai beef salad. Just to reiterate, when you mentioned arugula I realized that that was almost certainly part of what we used. While we think of this as a summer dish, I'm thinking that some warm baby bok choy and Chinese broccoli might go well with some nicely marinated beef.

                            Nancy, I'm looking for a Japanese recipe for Shrimp Sauce. I love it on my seafood, steak, chicken, pork, and veggies. Haven't tried it on desserts yet, lol. If you have this recipe, please send it to me.

                                                Thank you for your kinds words, Nancy! There is a TON of great eating on this website and I will look forward to sampling some of your offerings. I have only a passing familiarity with Japanese cuisine, I'm afraid. But I was cooking Cantonese for family and friends while in high school, so at least I have chopsticks mastered. I would like to try a Japanese recipe for duck, one of my favorite proteins. Thanks for the warm welcome!

                                                  Nancy -- one of the best collections I've seen. I've already made a handful (some several times), and have a nice todo list printed and ready to go.
