I’ve already extolled the virtues of mapo tofu in the recent past, but did you know that there are variations on mapo tofu?  Although my favorite will always be the classic mapo tofu, the version made with eggplant, called mapo nasu, is seriously delicious!  Eggplant replaces the tofu in this version of the Japanified Chinese […]

Happy Friday Pie Day my friends! (And how is it possible that it is already September?!?)  I am both loving and hating having my older girls back in school.  I love it because it lends a bit more structure to our days and gives them more opportunities to see friends, but I hate it because […]

Potato salad is a classic summer food in my mind.  It goes so perfectly with other picnic foods or foods that you might cook on the grill.  My FAVORITE style of potato salad is Japanese potato salad, which I’ve written about before.
