Welcome to my blog.

After a few random posts I've decided to dedicate this blog to my life long project of Japanese food
and culture (and my life in general, especially my travels).

Since my first taste of sushi back in 1997 I've been interested in, and frequently been making
Japanese food.
My interest in the country and culture started long before and continues to evolve.
I was lucky to finally visit Japan in October 2008 and hope to be back soon.
In July 2012 I visited Japantown in San Fransisco, the next best thing!
I was lucky to be back in 2015, 2016 and 2017 thanks to the fact that we now have family living in California.
Both small and big adventures will from now on, as time permits, be shared with you.

I will post other recipes and pictures too, mainly cooking projects, plants and art projects
(including my new love - making kumihimo braided objects).

I hope you'll find it interesting, and feel free to leave a comment or ask questions!

I write mainly in English, but there will be some Norwegian too, especially posts about things
that mainly have Norwegian interest. Tutorials are bi-lingual.

3rd time lucky?

Yes, I decided to get another rose.... my "Graham Thomas" seems to be alive, but a bit shaken after frost, but my "Heritage" didn´t make it this winter. I decided to try a "L.D. Braithwaite" this time, it has a higher hardiness-number than the Heritage... maybe it´ll last me more than one season.
Anyway, pictures are coming. It´s been raining all day, and there´s no flowers yet anyway...

David Austin promises me something like this:

I also browsed my blog-links and enjoyed, as always, reading baby ramens updates + checking her new Japanese items in store. You should too! Visit store here: (Link to blog in my blog-list on the right hand side):
