Clafoutis with Cherries and Blueberries

Clafoutis is a rustic French dessert made from a thick flan-like batter and cherries. Traditional recipe contains pits of cherries which provide another layer of flavor, however, I personally like to remove pits to serve this dish to my child. To me, either works fine.

Today I used cherries and blueberries, but you can use other fruits such as blackberries, raspberries, apples and plums.

Yakibuta: Roasted Pork

Yakibuta (or Char Siu) is one of my favorite recipes to cook pork. Simply slice thin or cut into cubes and serve with sandwiches, salads, fried rice, ramen or simply on top of plain steamed rice.

It takes some time to marinate meat, but actual kitchen time is minimal.

Just make sure to cook plenty and keep leftovers in fridge, so you can use anytime you want!
