Japanese Teriyaki Chicken by manabu masuda

Buy a bottle of Teriyaki sauce? NO!! It is amazingly easy to make teriyaki sauce at home. All you need is soy sauce, mirin, and sugar. The key ingredient is mirin, which adds shiny look (teri). You can find mirin in Japanese, Korean or Chinese grocery stores .

Okinawan Sweet Fritters by Tamara Daugherty

I grew up loving this delicate treat, both from the market in Okinawa (watching elderly women fry these up in giant cast iron pots) and made at home by my "Oba-ason" (Okinawan grandmother)".

Orange Portabella and Spinach Rice Bowl

Orange Portabella and Spinach Rice Bowl by Sean Kervin
