Cooking Secrets of My Mother: Part 1: Stuffing Meat


My mom is an awesome cook – she never used to be, but taught herself the abc’s of cooking so that she could feed us! Here she teaches me how to make Minced Chicken Vegi with Tomato Achar (pickle)…it’s so good. This is not a typical Nepalese cuisine, but an original dish created by my mom…

My Salad Creation


I love beans…not just for the nutritional benefits, but I find it to be a versatile food to keep around. I toss it on a bed of greens and love coming up with various types of salads. I like to purchase dry beans in a bag, soak it overnight and boil it the next day.

This is a White Bean Salad with Artichoke from The Pasta Store…

I mixed it with black beans (store bought)…

mustardplate
My favorite dressing? Simple…a spoonful of olive oil and mustard directly in the salad bowl.

Throw in any greens of your choice …delicious!

San Francisco Skyline

I took the ferry to Sausalito from San Francisco and would recommend taking out of town guests for the ride as well. It’s an absolute must.

The day was typical Bay Area weather-lots of sun, cool breeze and a relaxing atmosphere.

Alcatraz Island

The ride is approximately 18 minutes, one way. Cost of the ride varies.

Hair Extension: Nepal Style


I stumbled upon this store when I was visiting the Sleeping Goddess in Budhanilkantha in Kathmandu Valley, Nepal. They sell “organic” hair extensions and I was excited, as the storeowners were eager to sell me their goodies and readily showed me the step-by-step process of adding hair extension. It comes in various colors and length and is worn at festivals…gorgeous isn’t it?

My Nepalese Dog


Tsuyo, our dog demands to be treated like a King! We seldom let him in our casa unless he begs…Tsuyo, translated ‘strong’ in Japanese, is roughly six years old, but he has the stamina and energy of a newly born puppy. He’s the ‘star’ of our family and he knows it! Here, he ignores my mom’s plea…

A Japanese Specialty


mboshifunky

I looooovvveee umeboshi—a Japanese treat. Yummy? Absolutely. It is a tad bit high in sodium so daily consumption is not recommended! The flavor comes from salt and the color purple from shiso (perilla) leaves. It is most used as a filling for onigiri (a popular rice ball wrapped in nori). I like hachimitchu (honey) plum for the sweetness. Give it a try…you’ll love it too. I put it on a plain bowl of rice with nori (dry seaweed) and also drop it in a cup of hot green tea to get the bitterness out.

Roasted Peanut Butter Toast Sprinkled with Blueberries


bluberry

Breakfast: Absolutely the best combination…

I love Safeway Select Blueberry Preserve and spread it on my toast. It’s the best sweet treat out there. When I’m out of the blueberry preserve, I spread organic roasted peanut butter (I’m addicted to Berkeley Bowl’s
PBs…another favorite) and drizzle it with blueberries (the best-seasoned fruit to nibble now). The taste? Seriously delicious!
