Summer seems to be barreling through like a bullet train this year.  How is it possible that it is already the middle of August?  I’ve been trying to keep cool by not turning on the oven.  I find that if I don’t turn on my oven, I’m less likely to have to blast our air […]

I am currently neck-deep in preparations for cooking at a church girls’ camp the first week in June . . . let’s just say I haven’t been getting a whole lot of sleep.  But it is going to be FUN and the food is going to be great (knock on wood)!!!  Somehow I have to […]

If you had told me 6 months ago that a chocolate dessert that was free of gluten, dairy, and refined sugars could be as decadent as its gluten, dairy, and refined sugar full counterpart, I would have politely nodded and totally not have believed you.  But in the past few months I have taken my preconceived […]

Is everyone enjoying spring as much as I am?  I’m currently enjoying it even more than usual, because the Fuji family is in Japan for spring break right now, and the cherry blossoms, which are currently in bloom right now here, are one of my all-time favorite things to enjoy in life.  I’ll be sharing […]

I keep thinking that spring has arrived here in Utah, and then the weather will turn and we’ll get a new layer of snow on the ground.  Mother Nature is such a tease.  I’ve been watching the new issues of magazines show up on the newsstands, taunting me with spring flowers, and spring inspired dishes, […]

Happy Valentine’s Day!  One of the things my family loves is when I make a big batch of a green smoothie to share with them in the mornings.  My kids thing green smoothies are the best things ever.  I figured they would be equally happy with more of a treat coming out of the blender […]

When it comes to food, many of your favorites likely have their own holiday.  You already know that I observe National Pie Day on January 23rd, but what else is out there?  Ice Cream For Breakfast Day? Yep, it’s a holiday (and one that my mom’s side of the family observes religiously each year).  Pancake […]

The first time I ever laid eyes on a persimmon was in 2002 when Mr. Fuji and I moved to Japan for the first time.  It was love at first bite.  The flesh is creamy and unlike anything I’d ever eaten before, with hints of mango, peach, and orange, yet a flavor all its own. […]

Chocolate Orange Smoothie

Although Mr. Fuji and I have moved quite a few times in our marriage, it’s amazing how quickly I forget what a pain in the backside the process is.  This is the first time we’ve thrown selling a house into the moving equation, and oh goodness me!  I can’t wait for the process to be […]
