New YouTube channel : Time with YUCa

Categorised in: | Link of this article

Dear everyone,

Thank you for always reading my food & travel blog.
Today, I announce about my new YouTube channel! Yay~!!!
The name of my sub channel is “Time with YUCa”.

As you know, it’s becoming almost impossible to travel internationally these days.
I assume there are many people who work at home remotely (same as me!).
Also, you might be dreaming of traveling abroad again so soon (same as me!).

This is the content/service for YOU!
How about coming to Tokyo and exploring the city with me virtually?

To commemorate the release, I uploaded two videos at the same time.

The first video is a bicycle tour with my toy poodles, Mario and Luigi.
I went to my favorite park in my neighborhood.
Please enjoy the local scene in Tokyo!

And the second video is a driving to the Tokyo Skytree, which is a symbol of Tokyo.
We passed Asakusa on the way, so please try to find it.

Both videos have music that suits in the mood.
I will upload new videos once a week.

Enjoy those videos as a BGM while working, cooking, reading books, taking a nap, having a relaxing time or before going to sleep.

Stay tuned!
YUCa + Mario & Luigi

Japanese tradition for 1 year old baby : Erabitori

Categorised in: | Link of this article

My daughter Sui-chan became 1 year old! 

One year passed so fast. My husband and I always talk and laugh a lot about her birth day last year. That day, I had an initial labor pain mid night (around 1am!), but I was trying to forget it because it was two weeks before the scheduled date. So I went asleep until 6am. I was convinced that my daughter would be born today, so I hurriedly started editing my YouTube (It was a Yakisoba recipe video!) until the taxi arrives at 9am. Then, after eating delicious lunch at the hospital, I gave birth Sui-chan within 1 hour! What a busy and funny birth day!!!  It was and would be a memorable day forever!

At Sui-chan’s 1st birthday, my family and I did Japan’s traditional fortune game called “erabitori”. We put several items on the floor and wait until Sui-chan picks up the first item.

Those items are…
– Globe (we didn’t have balloon in the house 😅)
– Measure
– Mirror and comb
– Book (we didn’t have dictionary in the house 😅)
– Spoon and chopsticks
– Pen and brush
– Money
– Scissors
– Calculator
– Telephone

Guess what Sui-chan chose!   Read More

Did you try Japanese-style Hamburg Steak with Ponzu recipe?

Categorised in: | Link of this article

Do you enjoy my Japanese-style Hamburg Steak with Ponzu sauce recipe? This recipe might be easy for you, cooking lovers!

Japanese-style hamburg steak is a little bit different. During this video, I will also show you how to make ponzu sauce as well. I remember that many of my cooking class guests wanted to know this recipe. Thank you for waiting!

If you cannot find Shiso (Japanese Basil) and Daikon radish, don’t worry! Please skip the ingredients or grate other veggie (radish, carrot, turnips etc) for topping. After making hamburg steaks, please put in a container and eat within 2 days! Fresh is important for this hamburg steak.

P.S. This hamburg steak is good at paring with Japanese premium sake.

Kusa-dango and Kudzu mochi. Both sweets are made of edible plant.
Kuzdu-mochi topped with kinako (soybean powder) and Kuromitsu (brown sugar syrup)!

In Japan, we use kudzu powder a lot for sweets and also for savory dish. If you are interested in how the Kudzu is like, please check those of my recipes on either YouTube or my recipe app “Recipe by YJC”.

Gyoza making with kids

Categorised in: | Link of this article

Cooking is relaxing. That’s what I always feel while cooking. The other day, I cooked with my son and we made Gyoza (pot stickers) from scratch.
Homemade gyoza pastry has special chewy texture that you cannot taste from premade gyoza pastry. I like homemade better, of course!

In my Gyoza making online class, I will teach how to make Gyoza pastry from scratch! If you are interested in, please check the ingredients/utensils you need to prepare beforehand and book your seat from here!

By the way, Gyoza making is the perfect activity to cook with kids!
