Peanut Butter and Jelly Muffins

This is a quick and easy muffin recipe that we modified to make do with a lack of ingredients. The level of sweetness due to the peanut butter and brown sugar make it suitable for a side at breakfast or lunch, a snack, or a small desert. You can also use multiple varieties of jam or jelly, giving these muffins versatility.

We took the original recipe from Eat AT Home Cooks

Food Country Japan : Okonomiyaki

Whenever I hear a food has cabbage in it, I tend to think I won’t like it. Although that isn’t always the case, there is something about the idea of cabbage that usually makes me turn up my nose. So trying okonomiyaki was quite the leap outside my comfort zone. However, I’m glad I tried it because it is quite good. Okonomiayki also brought us back to our original idea for the blog: writing about food from other countries.

Okonomiyaki is a savory Japanese cabbage pancake. It is fairly versatile in the fact that you can add many different vegetables to the mixture, which makes it a neat way to sample different fresh vegetables. As the primary ingredient is cabbage, the cabbage flavor is pretty predominant without being overpowering, and is actually very nice. This recipe also basically makes one giant pancake, and you then cut it up and serve it.

Let us see how this is made!

Tonkatsu

Japanese food = love for me, so I had to share this favorite of ours. Quick and easy, and basically just a recipe for Asian chicken nuggets, this is perfect for when you don’t have a ton of food to cook or you don’t have a ton of time to make it in. Traditionally Tonkatsu is made with pork, but if you want to use chicken, it is the same recipe and then becomes known as Chicken Katsu. Hard to remember, I know. Anyway, without further adieu, we give you noms:

Onward to the katsu!
