These were the dishes that sang to me last year - the memory of their flavors wants to make me dance. Are they in order of excellence? Of course not - It’s all random. Chirashi from Dragonfly Izakaya - 18 pieces chef's selection sashimi over rice. I am a fan of raw fish, so... Continue Reading →
My brother gave me a red hot Instant Pot for Christmas. Why? Why join the IP party now if it has been around for ages? Well, I have been working from home for practically the last 6 years and had the luxury of having dinner on the table no later than 7:00 pm because I... Continue Reading →

Color and comfort are two things that strike you when you first... Continue Reading →
