Feeling the heat in LA, both weather- and work-wise. Going through a depressive slump as a result. What’s a girl to do to combat the resulting insomnia when crosswords aren’t doing the trick? Buy some new cookbooks, that’s what!

After a particularly cruddy day at work (and I mean this in the literal sense; omg i’m never going to do anyone a favour again), the satisfaction from opening the Amazon box sitting on my desk was close to that gained from tearing off the wrapping of an anticipated Christmas present. For within the box were two impulse purchases: Harumi’s Japanese Cooking and Washoku- recipes from the Japanese Home Kitchen.

Harumisan

I spent 20 minutes waiting for my agar to set salivating over the photo and recipe for Buckwheat Noodle Roll, an insane-looking maki sans rice, but made with buckwheat soba. That’s definitely one to try one of these weekends.

Wa Shoku

Happy now…
