Cold Soba with Thai Basil Pesto

I adore cold soba, and every time I shop at Daiso (only the best Japanese $2 store in the world), I go a bit overboard with buying every brand of soba available.  Generally, I have been using the noodles to add some carb-y substance to my salads; this Soba Salad recipe my mom makes is … Continue reading

Miso Soup

This week, I needed to use up some tofu that was borderline expired and miso paste, which will probably also expire soon. The … Continue reading
