Food that I Made in the Last Year

Haven't posted here for a while, so I'm going to spam the blog with the whole lot of food that I made in the last year or so. Of course, I'm neither a food stylist or a photographer by profession, so please excuse the unprofessional presentation and picture taking skills. :)

Creme of Onion soup

Eggs Benedict. English muffin topped with crispy bacon and poached egg with Hollandaise sauce.

Creme of Broccoli Soup with Blue Cheese Fritters, courtesy of Chef John at He claimed it was the best soup he ever made, and I don't disagree! It really is a marvelous soup! I felt a little wasteful as I used my black Roquefort Papillion for it ($6USD per 100grams!!!!), since I had no other blue cheese on hand :(..... But the taste is amazing!

Tonkatsu (deep fried breaded pork tenderloin) with rice and Worcestershire sauce, recipe courtesy of the Shizuoka Gourmet!
