I had never had Okonomiyaki before I made it, but I can’t wait to have it again! Some people call it “Japanese pizza” or “Japanese pancakes.” I found it to be similar to a frittata. Assorted vegetables heaped into a thin egg/flour batter makes this dish a great appetizer or a light meal.
Homemade bread doesn’t have to be difficult. Think focaccia! This recipe for Focaccia with Tomato, Green Onion and Garlic is amazing, and it’s easy to make.
