about me.

Hi there– I’m Yuri, and I love writing.  I also enjoy baking, yoga, and eating Nutella straight from the jar.  That’s real life right there.

I attempted to blog, over at my previous blog,  but something was missing.  Now that my blog contains butter, I think we’re set.

As a child of Japanese immigrants, I grew up in New York eating traditional Japanese food like miso-marinated cod and soba noodles, but was surrounded by amazingly diverse cuisine.  New York was a culinary haven, and I didn’t realize how spoiled I was until I moved to the Midwest for college (not to say the Midwest isn’t awesome– tater tot hot dish, anyone?).

Ironically enough, my favorite food is macaroni and cheese.  I live for mac and cheese.  I eat it for breakfast.  I eat it as a snack.  Add in some broccoli florets, and it’s basically a health food.  I’m a recent pescetarian, and I appreciate good cheese and garden-fresh veggies.

Outside of the blogosphere, I’m a school psychologist, a wife, and a human-mom to two amazing canine companions– Juni (age 10) and Ollie (age 3).

  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love your sense of humour and high spirits! If you do try and recipe, please give me a feedback. My regards to Juni and Ollie and the better half.

    • Of course! Your apricot/chocolate chip/coconut cake looks so delightful, by the way! I love Mounds and Almond Joys (not sure I’ve ever had Bounty?), so your cake sounds like a dream! I hope you and your family are doing well 🙂

  2. Thanks for liking my post, I really appreciate and I’m honoured that you are following my blog, I meant to follow yours the day I left the first message, I think I just forgot to click the follow button. Bounty is the same as Mounds but is only sold outside the US, the other two, (Mounds, Almond Joy) are only sold in the US. I look forward to receiving posts from your bog (I have remembered to click the follow button today). Have a great weekend!
