Ginger Pork Rolls with Eggplant

Besides some of the more popular Japanese dishes you will find in your local Japanese restaurants, I also want to share Japanese home styled cooking. With this particular dish, the combination of pork, eggplant, and Shiso leaf is just simply, amazing. It's a very easy dish to prepare, but you will be surprised with the complexity of the flavors it offers.

Taiwanese Hot Pot and Homemade Meatballs

Taiwanese Hot Pot and Homemade Meatballs

My husband introduced me to the wonderful taste of Taiwanese Satay sauce after we got married. Japanese hotpot is usually cooked in a flavored broth and the food is enjoyed as is. Taiwanese hotpot is different because not only is it cooked in a flavored broth, the food is also dipped into the hotpot dipping sauce after cooking to enjoy. The taste is pretty amazing blending in the perfect amount of spice mixed in with sesame oil, soy sauce, and vinegar. If you enjoy Thai and other Southeast Asian food, you'll probably love the dipping sauce just like me.

Oyakodon (Chicken and Egg Bowl) 親子丼

Oyakodon (Chicken and Egg Bowl) 親子丼

The literal translation of Oyakodon (Chicken and egg over rice) means "parent-and-child rice bowl." The typical ingredients include chicken (as in parent), egg (as in child), and onions. The ingredients are simmered together in a sauce then served on top of a large bowl of rice. It's a very common Donburi dish and served at most traditional Japanese "diners."

Indian Curry

Indian Curry

This is an authentic Indian Chicken Curry recipe from my Indian friend. I have added a lot more vegetable than the typical recipe because I want to make sure my children eat enough vegetable in their diet. The spice level is also not very spicy so feel free to increase the amount of chili powder if you love spicy food.

Personally, whenever the weather is cold and raining I always crave some comfort food. This easy to prepare cream penne pasta will quickly warm you up. It's easy and simple but it tastes goooood! My kids had seconds or thirds and they both said "Hmmmm it's yummy!!" Think bacon, pasta, cabbage, and cheese broiled in the oil.
