Japanese recipe website: it’s J-Simple

When we talk about Japanese food in Seattle, we’re usually talking about one of two things: sushi (my favorite subject) or teriyaki (the city’s ubiquitous “Japanese” take-out shops). But there’s so much more to the cuisine, as you can see if you take a spin through the whoa-vey-iz-mir! aisles of Uwajimaya or the much smaller (and homier) Maruta Shoten in Georgetown. There you can stock up on ingredients needed to make the simple homestyle recipes you’ll find at J-Simple Recipes. There’s lots to love on this impressive site courtesy of brother and sister team Kenji and Manami Imai, from Japan’s Aichi prefecture. Especially for folks like me who live for Japanese food but have yet to attempt making such comfort-food classics as this one:

And as I sit here sipping my coffee, having not yet eaten breakfast, I’m thinking “Who needs oatmeal?” when you can have chawanmushi
