Soboro Bento Box
テンペそぼろ弁当

Today it is well known that Japanese people eat with chopsticks. But did you know that they “cook” with chopsticks, too? For cooking we use larger sized chopsticks like these.

Vegan Lunch with Non-Vegan Guests
ヴィーガンじゃないお客にヴィーガン料理を出す

Now we are on a 100% plant-based diet. Since we switched from 95% to 100% a few months ago, there really haven’t been any major problems.

We LOVE Chicago for so many reasons, but one of the things we really enjoy doing there is trying different restaurants because there are so many options! […]

Matcha Toast
抹茶トースト

A homemade whole wheat toast, Matcha bean paste, melting butter, crunchy walnuts, and sweet maple syrup… What not to love?! This is like the king of toast for me. The bread we eat at home is mostly homemade, simply because it tastes better. Since we bought the Kitchenaid stand mixer, making bread has become so […]
