I cannot believe it has been nearly a year since I last updated this blog. It doesn't feel that long, at all. I guess that's a testament to how much of a whirlwind last year was! I have had many adventures, both in and out of the kitchen. I have traveled, made new friends, said goodbye to a… MORE

About this Cook
I'm 20 something American expat currently living in North Japan. I cooked often when I was at home in the states, but have faced many challenges becoming familiar with Japanese ingredients.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to make are Asian, Mexican, and Indian dishes. I am also quite fond of slow cook meats!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family comes from the south, so we have a lot of southern and soul food influences.
My cooking triumphs
I love curries and I tend to make pretty good ones. No measuring involved, just throw some stuff in a pot and taste!
My cooking tragedies
Pretty much anything I bake turns out kind of questionable. I much more of a cook then a baker! Although I do make a mean carrot cake!

Peanut Butter Noodles
Great recipe that you can make with many things on hand. I like to add carrots, broccoli, and chicken or tofu for a full meal. Also I never have chili paste so I just add a few dashes of cayenne pepper which does the trick! Very good!

Breakfast Sausage
I was craving biscuits and gravy and unfortunately can't find this kind of sausage in the stores where I live. But there is plenty of ground pork, so I found this recipe! This is a good basic recipe, but it really depends where your tastes lie. I have made it several times, and found myself adding close to double the indicated seasonings. I also leave out marjoram (can't find it) and add garlic (everything is better with garlic). It's also good if you substitue maple syrup for the brown sugar (does change the texture a bit). A very good basic recipe!

Todd's Famous Blueberry Pancakes
The texture for me was a bit dense, which I didn't mind too much. But they didn't have much flavor. I think they could have used a bit more sugar...maybe some vanilla. I used a lot of syrup when eating them because they were just bland. I used fresh bluberries that had been frozen for a few days. I coated them with sugar and flour to help prevent turning my batter blue. The search for good homemade blueberry pancakes goes on....
