Creamy Miso + Umeboshi Dip

  Today I am going to write the first instalment from three  dips and sauce recipes that have been ‘cooking’ in my head this past few weeks. The weather has been horrendously hot here out in the East Coast (and the rest of USA), and this really takes out any desire of cooking or eating […]

Daikon + Chicken Nikomi

For a while now I’ve been getting weekly supplies of organic vegetables from Radish Boya, an online home delivery grocery store that sells only organic and preservative-free produce. This shop has a very interesting  system, where to be a member you must get the ‘surprise’ box containing seasonal vegetables and fruits. The catch is, you’ll […]
