Omurice (Omelette Rice)

Omurice is a popular contemporary Japanese fusion creation blending Western omelette and Japanese fried rice. It’s usually enjoyed at home but also can be found at many Western food diners in Japan. When there is leftover rice, it’s a perfect single plate meal to prepare the next day.The rice is usually pan-fried with ketchup and chicken, then wrapped in a thin sheet of egg omelette. From preparation to completion only takes a quick 20 minutes. It’s one of my children’s favorite meals with fried rice, eggs, and lots of ketchup....more

On Julia's 100th Birthday: 6 Food Blogging Lessons I Learned From Her

Julia Child taught me everything I know about cooking. During college, in the early 1970s, while my friends cut classes to watch afternoon soaps, I inhaled every episode of The French Chef.

I couldn't get enough of Julia, cooking teacher extraordinaire, who dropped, spilled, flung and goofed, but also infused new-to-us recipes and techniques with her special joie de vivre. ...more
Thank you, Lydia. Your heart shines through your writing and recipes. Just like Julia =) more
