Quick and easy homemade ramen. This broth is simple to make yet bold and flavorful. It’s perfect for pouring over some ramen noodles and loading up with your favorite toppings! This is an easy dinner that everyone will love!

Japanese food is one of my favorite cuisines. I love trying to recreate all of the delicious flavors at home! You should definitely give this hibachi chicken, chicken katsu, and seared ahi tuna a try!

Quick and Easy Japanese-Style Ramen

Ramen is one of my favorite comfort foods, especially when the temperatures drop! It’s important to note that this is NOT the ramen that I’m sure we’ve all had at some point in life, college days maybe? The days before a paycheck when you realize you only have a couple dollars to your name. I’m sure we’ve all had similar experiences.

This recipe is inspired by traditional Japanese ramen. I love … Read more

Europol and Spain lead horse meat fraud investigation

European authorities have uncovered a network that sold potentially dangerous horse meat in at least four countries.

The operation was coordinated by Europol and the Spanish Civil Guard (Guardia Civil). A video can be seen here.

Operation Yucatán targeted the sale of horse meat unsuitable for consumption. The meat was sold on the Spanish, Belgian, German, and Italian markets.

In Spain, 35 people were detained and six companies were investigated. Spanish officials seized half a ton of horse meat from butcher shops as it posed a risk to public health. Earlier this year, it was revealed that six arrests had been made by Belgian Federal Police. Authorities did not report any related illnesses.

Traceability information for the animals was altered by modifying registration, transfer, and identification documents. The gang is accused of crimes including food fraud, money laundering, and document fraud.

Inspections by the Federal Agency for the Safety of … Read more

If Black Friday passed you by, black coffee can save the day, as both fuel and theme for holiday gift shopping. Besides all of the splendid coffees reviewed here, the unprecedented boom in new coffee brewing tools and accessories entering the market over the past couple of years has made it easier than ever to bring more excitement to a well-crafted cup, be it your own or a loved one’s.

When gifting for a fellow coffee lover, it’s a good idea to start with this fact: People brew the way they brew because that’s how they like it. Change can be fun, flexibility is healthy, yet while coffee is a delicious destination to which there are many routes, not everyone wants to go off-roading.

There’s no wrong way to enjoy a great coffee, although there may be a better way. Here, we’ve compiled a … Read more

Happy Bonne Maman Advent Calendar Season to All Who Celebrate

The 2022 Bonne Maman advent calendar. | Bonne Maman

Jamvent is here, bringing the wholesome joy of watching people unbox tiny jars of jam on TikTok

It’s finally here: Tomorrow, the advent calendars will commence once again, and the tiny jars of Bonne Maman jam will take their rightful place all over my For You page, with people revealing one gingham-topped jar per day until Christmas and sharing a flurry of reviews. Last year brought such delights as wild blueberry with lemon balm and sweet orange and passion fruit to my feeds, but this year, who knows what whimsical, limited-edition flavors will stand out? Perhaps the fancy-sounding mirabelle plum? Chestnut and orange with spice also sounds quite nice.

The advent calendar has humble beginnings — maybe as a child you opened a door on a paper calendar to reveal a picture per day, or found a piece of candy inside … Read more
