Okonomo-How you like it

Yaki: Grill

More like okonomi-yummy, this savory Japanese pancake is one of my absolute favorite dishes. I first tried it in high school when my Japanese teacher made it for our class-she is a chef now, and she made us the most amazing food to introduce us to traditional Japanese cuisine (all the good stuff made up for the nattō.) Okonomiyaki always stuck out in my mind, but I did not encounter it again for at least five years, and it was poorly represented when I did. 381 more words

Chinglish Cheese Bruschetta

This is the Armenian bruschetta to try. Chinglish is a sun dried cheese. Nani makes this for us all the time. I got creative with it and made a bruschetta with it, adding tomatoes, olives, and EVOO. 24 more words

Ham Pinwheels

This is an excellent way to use leftover ham. Use packaged puff pastry to make the preparation for this appetizer easy. Other thinly sliced meat can be substituted for the ham. 114 more words
