Garlic Miso Chicken Wings

I’ve found another TopMom during my food blog travels! Our August Mom of the Month’s name is Nami and when I first encountered her site, I fell in love with her personable style and how she made traditional Japanese dishes quick and easy for home cooks with simple instructions and beautiful prep-to-finish photos. Nami moved to the U.S. from Yokahama, Japan as a student 15 years ago and lives in the San Francisco Bay area with her husband and their two young children. When she was young, Nami’s mom made sure that she learned the proper way to prepare the Japanese dishes she made for dinner each evening and Nami helped by washing and chopping ingredients. Thank you to Nami’s okaasan!

As a college student, Nami wasn’t very interested in cooking, but once she had kids she started preparing meals at home because she really wanted her children to eat healthy and nutritious food.  It’s very important to her that her family eats healthy because, as the saying goes,  “you are what you eat”.  Both of her kids love all types of food but especially Japanese food like sashimi, tonkatsu, gyoza, gyudon, and udon noodle soup. She loves seeing the joy on their faces as they enjoy the food she cooks and hopes that her recipes also bring a smile and happiness to the readers of her website Just One Cookbook who desire to learn to cook Japanese food at home.

    Those miso wings are fingerlicking good! I have some chicken drumsticks in the freezer need to be used and this seems the perfect one to use them up! Thanks, Nami, and Priscilla.
    Have a great weekend!

      Thanks, Victoria :) I had a tech guy over to help me backup and fix a few things with my comments, etc. and decided to change the whole darn thing since I had him there!
