Agedashi Tofu
Think you don’t like tofu? Then this recipe might just change your mind. It’s easy to make and doesn’t require too much special shopping, if any at all. A traditional Japanese appetizer that is often served at home as a prelude to a meal, or something to graze on while enjoying a few beers in good company at a raucous izakaya (a Japanese pub of sorts, but usually with some serious food), this is something you won’t want to miss. Be sure to use regular tofu, as firm tofu will result in agedashi tofu that are, well, firm, and silken tofu is difficult to work with.

Garlic-Miso Chicken Wings
My kids love chicken wings. I usually use drumettes for them so they can easily enjoy these mini-drumsticks. This recipe was originally from my Japanese friend who used to live in San Francisco because of her husband’s work. We had our first and second kids around the same time (then she had a third) and our kids played really well together.  Since she’s shared this original version with me, I changed the recipe to fit my family’s taste. The recipe is very easy to prepare and I hope you will like these wings. The combination of garlic, miso, soy sauce, and mirin is simply amazing.

White Sumiso Sauce
White Sumiso Sauce is a traditional sauce made from young, pale white miso or medium-aged light brown miso, sugar, and vinegar. It has a thick texture and a pleasant soybean flavor with delicious, sweet, sour, and salty characteristics... I use [this sauce] in traditional and modern Japanese preparations and also employ it as a new flavoring element in many popular American recipes, such as salad dressings, marinades, and rubs. Freezing will not change the texture of the sauce, and prepared sauce can be stored in the freezer for up to three months. When needed, take it out of the freezer, quickly scoop and transfer the necessary portion to a small bowl, and return the container to the freezer to preserve the quality.

Chicken Katsu Don
Today’s recipe, Chicken Katsu Don, might "look" time-consuming but it’s actually not. It’s perfect for a busy day. I usually serve this dish with a bowl of miso soup and a small salad. It’s a pretty balanced meal that is quite filling because of donburi (rice bowl) style. If you use chicken breasts instead of chicken tenders, make sure to cut each piece thin so it will cook faster.
