Caprese salad roll

Weird sushi is nothing new here – if you look back in the archives, we’ve got everything from burrito sushi (not to be mistaken with a sushi burrito) to Thanksgiving sushi. But oddly enough, I’ve never tried caprese salad in sushi – until now! I was expecting this one to be a bit odd, but

kappa maki

We’re now on YouTube!

We’ve started a YouTube channel! We’re going back to our SushiDay roots – every Monday and Wednesday, we’ll post a sushi video, going back to the random, crazy rolls that this blog started with.

Most of my soup-cooking has happened off-stream – I’ve made creamy italian quinoa soup, roasted garlic chili white bean soup, and ham bones, greens, and beans soup
