Potato & Leek Soup

I was inspired to make the leek and potato soup after browsing on Foodbuzz and found one I really liked. Unfortunately while I was browsing I had accidentally closed the window and I lost the recipe page. After spending some time to look for the recipe, I gave up and decided to experiment on my own. Luckily my entire family all enjoyed it, let me know what you think.

Sukiyaki すきやき

Sukiyaki すきやき

My mom is from Kansai area so even though I grew up in Kanto, we typically eat Sukiyaki Kansai style at home. Kansai style sukiyaki cooks the beef first then the rest of the ingredients as well as the broth is added. By cooking the beef on the cast iron pot, it caramelizes the meat and provides an extra dimension to the taste. Don't buy the ready made Sukiyaki sauce from supermarket since they tend to be too salty. Try making your own sukiyaki broth today.

Easy Paella

Paella is one of my favorite dish when I go to Spanish tapas restaurants. There are many different varieties of paella and ways to prepare them. My recipe is probably not the most authentic but if you are craving for paella it's simple enough to make it yourself.

Asian Coleslaw

Asian Coleslaw

My Japanese friend who lives in Southern California gave me this colesslaw recipe. Ever since I made this salad for the first time, my family prefers this coleslaw over my "western" one. I was especially in shock when I first saw my son enjoying raw cabbage! I recommend this coleslaw to be served with seared ahi tuna dinner.
