TAMAGO Poster, 16x20, Print in USA. Dining room

Eggs are delicious, healthy, and nutritious, that's why I eat eggs every single day. As a result of getting bored of scrambled and boiled eggs, I started making different types of Japanese egg dishes that I can finally enjoy!

TAMAGO POSTER 卵ポスター

From tamago-yaki to steamed savory custard and pudding, you will find these basic recipes on Tamago Poster, an illustrated Japanese egg recipe guide that I drew! The poster could be a delightful gift for a friend who loves egg, an inspirational egg guide for the kitchen wall, or simply a tasty Tamago poster in your dining room. It is now available on Kickstarter!

KAMIKOTO 神箏 KANPEKI KNIFE SET REVIEW

Kanpeki Knife Set: a long slicing knife (top), a Nakiri vegetable knife(middle), and an utility knife.(bottom)

I am extremely excited to try out this beautiful Kanpeki Knife Set from Kamikoto 神箏 , who is a maker of knives with high-grade Japanese steel from the Niigata Prefecture, Japan. The company Kamikoto is so confident in their knives that they even provide a limited warranty for lifetime for their customers.

Cutting ingredients is never my favorite thing to do, but I finally understand how a good knife can change so much in cooking. It just makes cutting so much easier and fun! I absolutely love these knives because they are designed in a way so that you can use them effortlessly and precisely. Let me show you what I did with these knives!

[RECIPE] Teriyaki Chicken Simple Set Meal (Teishoku) + Video

Japanese Teishoku (set meals) can actually be homemade easily within an hour. Follow this simple Teriyaki Chicken set meal recipe to make a quick Japanese meal at home! Although this recipe uses skinless chicken, it is also desirable to use chicken thighs with skin and omit extra cooking oil. Feel free to use other vegetables like Napa Cabbage, Komatsuna (Japanese Mustard Spinach), or Tofu. Simply adding pickles as side dishes is a great option too!

Sasaki is one of the highest rated sushi restaurants in the Bay Area. Their ingredients have excellent quality and their courses are beautifully and creatively made. Not only I learn more about Japanese cooking and recipes, there are combinations of flavors and texture that I was surprised to try for the first time.

J-LIST BOX (SNACK DX) MARCH 2017 REVIEW

SNACK DX MARCH 2017 EDITION BOX (J-LIST BOX) 
I must say, J-List Box's Snack DX is huge! The mailing package is completely filled up with snacks without any air space!! That's incredible! I am also very glad to see sakura-themed snacks as well. (Since it's almost Cherry Blossom season!^^) When I first see this snack box, it really excites me because of all the unfamiliar snacks that I've never seen & tried before. Alright, let's get ahead start with our fun exploration through the Snack DX J-List Box for March!
