Roasted Sweet Potato with Blackened Corn

This is one of my favorite ways to eat sweet potatoes. When I buy a bag, I cut them in half and roast them. They can be used for so many different things, but serving with chopped veggies is an easy way to make them into a quick meal. You can use any veggies that […]

Tori Ramen

We finally got to try Tori Ramen today for lunch. They have been open for several weeks now. The decor is simple but cool and comfortable. I had their Ton-kotsu ramen. Very good.
