I feel like my love for pudding all started when I was a kid, on my couch after school, watching Billy Madison over and over. His affection for Snack Pack was contagious and soon after, my go-to request for school lunches was always pudding. Most weeks my mom would resist, but every now and then, my brother and I would wear her down and she’d end up giving in to us. Those were the best school lunches ever!

Prepare Kanpachi Sashimi with Spicy Ponzu

If you’ve ever been confused by all the Japanese names associated with “yellowtail” at sushi restaurants, you’re not alone. While researching this post I learned that my long-held belief that Kanpachi and Hamachi are two developmental stages of yellowtail was spectacularly wrong. As it turns out, Kanpachi, Hamachi and Yellowtail are three totally different fish! While tempting, I can’t blame American sushi restaurants for my miseducation. Even in Japan, many people seem to think that Kanpachi and Hamachi are just two names for the same fish. So why all the confusion?

This past Sunday I went to a friend’s house for the Super Bowl (code for: eat lots of snacks). On the table there was a bowl of guacamole, spinach and artichoke dip, salsa, a taco buffet, pulled pork sliders…and banana paleo muffins. It was a weird addition but my friend had made them the day before and figured she’d put them out in case someone wanted to eat something a bit healthier. I sort of scoffed but eventually tried one because I’m always curious about baked goods. And you guys, they were delicious!

Prepare Roasted Stuffed Peppers with Chicken and Rice

I remember thinking that colored bell peppers were pricy living in New York at a few dollars per pound, but after moving to Japan, I was shocked to see them selling for $4 each! When I saw them on sale the other day for about a dollar apiece I couldn’t help but buy all that was left. Of course it wasn’t until I got home with my haul that I started to wonder what I was going to do with all these peppers.

Most of the recipes I post in this space are real recipes. What I mean by that is in order for you to end up with the end result, which I’m presenting to you, you actually have to follow the instructions. But these…these are more like an inspiration. And, it might’ve been an excuse of us to have a conversation about nachos. I mean, they might be my favorite game day food ever (right behind this Spinach Dip from last year) because what is more glorious than melty cheese, topped with beans and delicious things like spicy radishes, fresh cilantro and avocado? Nothing!

Make Farro Pudding for an Easy Dessert

Like rice, farro is such a versatile grain that’s good in anything from soups to salads to stuffings. Because it can be used in a lot of the same ways as rice, it led me to ponder what it might be like substituted for rice in a pudding.

Make Crunchy Shaved Brussels Sprouts Salad

The salad is a refreshing break from all of the stews and cozy food you’ve probably been consuming for the entire month of January. I love wintery foods and I suppose this falls into this category simply because of its seasonal ingredients, but to me, when I ate this, I thought of warmer days. Don’t get me wrong, I’m very content it’s not hot and mosquitos are flying around; I’m more of a fall and winter gal.

Pan-fry a Teriyaki Chicken Bowl for an Easy Lunch

Teriyaki Chicken Bowl recipe

Follow PBS Food on Pinterest

Perhaps it’s my Japanese heritage, but for me, a teriyaki chicken bowl (照り焼きチキン丼) is one of the easiest, tastiest lunches ever. It only requires a handful of ingredients and comes together in less than 10 minutes. Once you’ve made it a few times, there’s no need to measure out the ingredients, and you can riff off the base recipe, adding things like ginger, garlic, hot sauce and black pepper to mix things up.
