Jack-Fruity-Tooty Sushi

<p>Whenever Son visits his parents, his mom sends a bunch of food and fruit back with him. Recently, she sent a bag of jackfruit. I had never tried jackfruit before, so Son made me try some. It's pretty good! It tastes similar to mango (I think), but not quite as sweet. </p>

Kristen Maki

<p>A couple of months ago, my little sister, Kristen, <a href="">left a comment</a> on <a href="">Crunchy Shrimp Roll</a> requesting a roll with bacon, green onion, avocado and mozzarella cheese. So a week or two ago, I had all the ingredients so I decided to try it.</p>

Prosciutto and Arugula Cones

<p>A few weeks ago, Son went to dinner at <a href="">I Cugini</a> in Santa Monica with a bunch of his coworkers who were in Southern California for the week. One of them was unable to finish her Pizza di Prosciutto, and since she was staying in a hotel she gave it to Son. He brought it home for me to try. I loved it... and thought that it would be great

Stuffed Somen Salad

<p>Every year the weekend of Thanksgiving, my Japanese great aunts throw a huge Christmas party. The entire family is invited, so it's a huge day of craziness, fun, and tons of really good Japanese food. I have fond memories of eating sushi and somen salad (somen is a type of Japanese noodle) and watching while all the adults played white elephant. Unfortunately, once I started performing Nutcracker every year the party

Southwestern Sushi

<p>The Southwestern Sushi is a great way to introduce those who refuse to eat sushi to the taste and idea of eating fillings with rice and nori. It tastes similar to a roast beef sandwich, but much much better!</p>
