Matcha Merry Layer Cake

Matcha Merry Layer Cake is like a Japanese tea ceremony in one bite! Edgy matcha green tea flavor complements sweet vanilla frosting and fluffy cake. Plus, the matcha mousse blends harmoniously with the other elements of the cake. 

The Simple Steps of the Matcha Merry Layer Cake: 


Salmon and Shrimp Ramen Salad Bento

Lemon is the standard brightner for fish. But yuzu (Japanese citrus) is fantastic, too! For summer bentos, cold ramen noodles serve as a beautiful base for salmon and shrimp. Add a few vegetables and you've got an easy balanced meal in a bento box.  


Healthy California Style Ramen Bento

Kenko in Japanese means health. Ramen is a perfect base for a healthy California style ramen bento!  Especially if the vegetable ramen package from Japan promotes Kenko.

Healthy Delectable Carrot Cake Dessert #GlutenFree

The gluten-free recipe below for carrot cake bakes up into a moist but firm cake. (Use the same amount of regular flour if gluten is not a concern for you.) The chopped nuts and fresh grated carrots add wholesome goodness. The spice in the cake does compliment cream cheese frosting. To keep it healthy, I refrained my frosting enamored self from going to town. But a little bit doesn’t hurt, right?
