“Travel week! I’m taking my annual ‘escape the torturous Tokyo heat’ trip to The States. A few weeks in Cleveland and Chicago with the family first, then off to LA to see a brand-new niece, and hopefully a few days in the Bay Area to see CARLA. Follow my adventures on Instagram and let me know if you have any must-visit restaurants in Cleveland or LA.”
*Charred corn with miso butter, bacon & garlic scapes. Every day for the rest of the summer.
*Roast peaches with granola. What an amazing way to use slightly underripe (but stlil delicious) peaches.
*I’m headed to Ohio on Monday (yay!) for my annual summer trip to get out of the oppressive Tokyo summer. I’m looking forward to a lot of things, but I really want to try this ice creamery!

We’re SO lucky that we have crazy modern conveniences to keep in touch with your favorites (like Google Hangouts and email and web based texting services), but MAN. Being able to call Alyssa while she’s in a market marveling at American produce sections? PURE GOLD. I highly recommend it.”
* I love inexpensive jewelry, but it often doesn’t look great for too long. I can’t wait to try this at-home trick for restoring cheaper pieces!
* When tangrams meet cookies.
