Lazyass Cookin’: Natto Omelette

by Kayoko Akabori

I have missed writing this column, so I’m bringing it back! I can not pretend that I have abandoned my lazy ways, or that I’ve stopped cutting corners when cooking. My kitchen may be much bigger than what I had in Brooklyn, but this only means that I can spread out my laziness over more […]

Lazyass Cookin’: Cold Tomato + Onion Salad

by Kayoko Akabori

Is it really the last day of Sloth Season? Say it ain’t so! Sigh. Totally not fair considering the Bay Area has been a shroud of fog, gloom and sweater-weather all “summer”. In Dante’s Inferno, San Francisco is not unlike the third circle of hell, where the gluttonous are punished in eternal rain and relentless […]

Lazyass Cookin’: The Goya Champloo Breakfast Burrito

by Kayoko Akabori

Lazy here. Very very lazy. Yet, I have a knack for going into my fridge and whipping up random dishes that are at times bizarre, but always edible. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Goya Champloo Breakfast Burrito. It’s kinda genius, if I do say so myself, plus it seriously only took me like […]

Lazyass Cookin’: Warm Arugula + Tuna Pasta (An Ode to Wilting Produce)

by Kayoko Akabori

After living with my parents for the last year and half, I forgot how difficult it is to cook for just yourself. Aside from it being a little lonely (I like to cook for other people!), it takes a lot of planning and coordination. Grocery shopping for one is an artform that could take years […]

Japanify: Lazyass Wafu Salad with Wasabi-Yuzu Dressing

by Yoko Kumano

The idea of a salad at many Japanese restaurants in America is some iceberg lettuce, julliened carrots and a cherry tomato (if your lucky) – topped with a creamy, sesame dressing. I can say that I am sometimes a fan of this combination, but it’s really not the kind of salad you will ever see […]

Lazyass Cookin’: Sauteed Sugar Snap Peas w/ Lap Cheong

by Kayoko Akabori

It’s sugar snap pea season! These beans are so sweet and only need a minute in the frying pan, which means it’s perfect for us LASYASSES. Remember when I wrote about chinese sausages, aka lap cheong a couple weeks back? Let’s add those, and a clove of garlic. Deveining, or “stringing” the peas is the […]
