I want to try that dashi recipe and watermelon rind recipe!
the only reason I try cooking every once in a while is because of your posts.
My all time favorite is that kinpira with the mushroom, eggplant and pine nuts.
Happy New Year!

oh, btw, I really liked that gonjiri chopped up and mixed with cream cheese! Maybe like that smoked takuan you made. I got the gonjiri from Takeya, the "big purple building" by Ameyoko. It's a super dried daikon tsukemono individually wrapped into bite sized pieced.
Thanks for the idea!

Looking forward to your list Jalna!

It is humbling that I am inspiring you V :) I hope to find that gonjiri takuan you are talking about.

All the best for 2017 everyone!
