My children love fresh cherries and we had quite a bit extra from our cherry picking trip. What to do with delicious fresh cherries? I tried this easy cherry clafoutis recipe and had my little helpers assist me. The result was super yummy. Try this recipe while cherries are still in season.

Crème Caramel (Purin) プリン

Crème Caramel (Purin) プリン

One of the most popular desserts all over Asia is Crème Caramel, aka purin, pudding, or flan. You can find them in most restaurants, bakeries, or local convenience stores. It's definitely my husband's top 3 favorite dessert of all time. The flan recipe I am sharing is very simple and does not require baking. With just a little bit of patience you can enjoy these purin in less than 1 hour.

Taro Tapioca Dessert Soup

Taro Tapioca Dessert Soup

My favorite part about going to Chinese restaurants is the complimentary dessert soups they serve at the end of the meal. I love sweets and it's definitely one of my weakness. Among all the dessert soups, my two favorites are red bean and taro tapioca. I was so excited to find this recipe and share with my reader. Enjoy.

Steamed Cake 蒸しパン

Steamed Cake 蒸しパン

I am not much of a baker for someone who spends quite a bit of time in the kitchen. Maybe it's because most bakeries in Japan are simply amazing so we don't try to make too many dessert at home. There's a bakery near my house in Yokohama where the fresh cream taste just like heaven. When my friend Ellena asked me if I knew how to make Japanese steamed bread (Mushi Pan), I went to search for a recipe that looked yummy. After the snack judges in the house (my two children) approved, I am happy to share this recipe.

Simple Crepes

Simple Crepes

Today's recipe is crepes. I'm sure everyone LOOOVES crepes. These days I'm always staying up late to work on my blog and so has my new foodie friend, Suzana from Firefly Blog. She has been "torturing" me by posting delicious meals at night, more precisely she posts them past midnight when I'm really really hungry! One of her recent recipes was Crepes with Peanut Butter and Banana. Crepes are my favorite and I had to try!
