My husband Peter doesn't like cake. But he does love pies. So when I asked him what kind of pie he would like for his birthday, he said his favorite is strawberry-rhubarb. My heart sank. Where am I going to find rhubarb in Tokyo in April? I've never seen rhubarb sold in the regular Japanese grocery stores so I ventured over to our neighborhood i...

When we moved from Arizona to Tokyo 8 years ago, we put some of our belongings into semi-permanent storage knowing that some things just wouldn't fit into a house that was two-thirds smaller than the one we were leaving, and we couldn't bear to part with some of our material things. Along with several bookshelves, tons of books, an antique partn...

A nearby international supermarket was selling a habanero plant loaded with lots of ripe peppers so we scooped it up and bought it. Our plant last year didn't survive the winter, but this time I'll bring it indoors and see if I can manage to not kill it. We picked off all the ripe peppers and froze them except for two, which were roasted in a dr...
