Just One Cookbook

just_one_cookbookJust One Cookbook is a blog run by Namiko “Nami” Chen, an author/cook/photographer behind the actual book, “Just One Cookbook.”   While it does not have the extensive collection of millions of recipes, it does offer recipes with a personal touch.  There are a great many Japanese recipes on offer, many of them “30 minutes or less recipes.”

The blog recomends you start by browsing the Recipe Index to see what kind of food and recipes are on offer.
