Pan Grilled Yummy Yam Potato

Hello, welcome to my new posting!


I’m tanooki, wondering around what to eat NOW, and what other people eating while I’m eating something 😛


Anyways, I’m so obsessed eating food that is made with potatoes.

French fries, of course, baked potatoes, yeah I’ll have some with some sour cream, and potato salad, can I have it with tomato cup? XD


But sometimes I want to cook my typical recipe by using yam instead of potatoes.

The sweet one can be used as dessert and side dish of savory menu.


This time, I put a pinch of perilla to give it herbal flavor.

If you want a twist on your ordinal recipe, try this!

Marinated Eggplant

Hello there, welcome to my new posting!


I think I like to marinate veggies.

When I was a big meat lover, I used to marinate chicken, beef, and pork a lot, but since my dinner buddy decided to be a vegan, I stopped cooking meat (well, I should say cook LESS. sometimes I can’t stop thinking about how tasty a meat can be, so it is impossible to completely change my eating habit.)


So now, I marinate zucchini and variety of veggie to make my food flavorful.

This time, I’d like to share marinated food by using one of my favorite veggie: Eggplant!!


For marinated zucchini, the recipe that I shared you all a while ago, I used balsamic vinegar. But for this one, I used soy sauce, the traditional Japanese ingredients that appears on most of my dish!   


If you want to add a side dish on your asian food, this is the one you should try!

Buttery Garlic Bread

Today was super busy, so Tanooki forgot(skipped) to go grocery shopping.

Tonight’s main dish was tomato marinara pasta, but when tanooki opened pantry shelf,


Not quite enough pasta was left on my pantry.

My dinner buddy would come back in 30min, so there was no time that tanooki could rush into the nearest grocery to grab pasta.

But, there was still some baguette left, so let’s turn it into garlic bread to spare the dinner table room.

It is classic dish that everyone must have had for their snack or appetizer especially with Italian food, so my dinner buddy won’t notice the behind pantry secret.
