Japanese Milk Bread

Last November my husband and I spent the week of Thanksgiving in Tokyo. The first few days we were there Mr. Shenanigans had to work, so I took the opportunity to visit different neighborhoods in Tokyo, tasting different foods and soaking up the culture. Once his work obligations were complete we moved into a little […]

 When I was in England last Fall I fell in love.    Not with a person, or even the land or the culture, however fantastic they all are.  No, I fell in love with the bacon.  In England they serve, almost exclusively, back bacon.  If you have never had this kind of bacon before it is a  […]

Forget the boxes, the mixes, and don’t even think of waiting an hour for macaroni and cheese on a week night.   I have the super-fast solution for homemade macaroni and cheese, and it is SO good. I have something of an addiction to macaroni and cheese.   When I was a child I ate mac & cheese from the […]

I had a craving for carrot cake the other day.  It was one of those cravings you try to ignore, but in the end you submit because, like it or not, you did not try all that hard to avoid it in the first place. Submitting to my desire also gave me the opportunity to […]

When I was taking my Breads & Rolls class last year in culinary school we made an Indian bread called Aloo Paratha. It is a wheat bread dough that is filled with a curried potato mixture, rolled flat and cooked on a hot griddle. They were, in a word, delicious!     I have thought of them fondly, […]

   When my husband was little his mother, who is from Taiwan, would take him along on her shopping expeditions to Chinatown in his hometown of Chicago.  As a treat, she would buy him char siu bao, or Chinese BBQ pork steamed buns.  I believe food can create memories, and passing a Chinese bakery one […]
