I bought a head of cabbage for the first time and thought I would try something new. Simmered Cabbage.
I whipped this up one morning to put in lunches. As it was cooking, I found myself getting excited for lunch. It smells great. Not having grown up near the ocean, it sometimes doesn’t occur to me to buy fish. I love fish but we rarely ate it when I was a child. I went through a fish poor couple of weeks and decided to try something new. Small fish are good for you so I picked up some Japanese pond smelt (ワカサギ wakasagi) on a whim. When I find a new ingredient, I often turn to Cookpad.com (I use the app so it is the Japanese version but the English site is supposed to be great). This recipe is so simple and tasty. It takes less than five minutes from start to finish.
I was contacted by KA Japan a while ago asking if I’d like to contribute a recipe. Of course, I said yes and I sent them the gluten free cupcakes with blueberry buttercream recipe I used in my recent gluten free cooking class. Hop over to the KA Japan website for the recipe. Enjoy!

July first is coming fast and it’s time to celebrate. Come join me on June 29th for an early celebrations. I’ll be running two cooking classes – Oh Canada cupcakes and poutine.
In the poutine class we will make homemade fried and gravy and then construct the classic dish beloved by Canadians.
The cupcake class will be family friendly so you are welcome to bring your children. Families do not have to be related. Feel free to find a friend and form a family. Each “family” will make and decorate six cupcakes.
