Oshogatsu Osechi Ryori 2017


Happy New Year Everyone!

I am so grateful to have had an amazing season of cooking, togetherness and family time. I am vowing to keep this togetherness and love in mind in 2017. I know no matter how busy I get, how much yoga I am teaching, I will always make this time to have these traditions with my family.  I am so excited to share my favorite meal of the year to start 2017. I hopefully share every year  these traditional and not so traditional Japanese dishes for good luck to our family and friends, things that mean so much to use and that we are grateful to share together. This Year was Adelyns first New Years and we were so happy to have her with us even if she can’t enjoy all the food just yet.

Here are the last 6 years of this family traditions.
