something(s) borrowed

I'd had eggnog cheesecake before but I don't remember ever making it so I was really happy to find Reeni's recipe for it on Cinnamon and Spice and Everything Nice. I halved the filling ingredients, added chocolate syrup on top, and baked it in a storebought chocolate-cookie crust.

Okinawan Takoraisu (Japanese sticky rice with taco trimmings on top) was one of my favorite dishes when we lived in Japan so I was excited to find Rachael's recipe for it on Tasty Kitchen. I loved the soy sauce in the taco meat and all the lovely flavors and textures. This is one I'm going to be making often--not only does it bring back fun memories from Japan but it is one darn easy and delicious meal!

Nigella Lawson's Welsh-Rarebit Muffins are one heck of a savory treat: I serve them with bangers and roasted veggies. (Couldn't find "English" mustard powder anywhere so I substituted Chinese spicy mustard powder instead.)

Okay, this isn't really borrowed at all: My beans love creating their own fusion food. Here are Matthew's Southern cheesy grits with Japanese sesame and seaweed furikake on top. Whatever floats your boat!

I guess it is like my hubby's rendition of oatmeal with furikake on it :)

Furikake on grits and oatmeal! What is this world coming to? I remember the package of oatmeal in the Japanese grocery stores with pictures of mushrooms on a bowl of oatmeal.
