Hi colleen, I guess I will have to leave a note to Craftarella, because something went wrong with my measurements (some just disappeared).
I'm a bit short on time, so I'll just leave you the link to the recipe which is on my blog. If you have trouble with the metric system, you might easily convert it with google. If you need any further help, let me know! :-)
Here's the link:
I made azuki paste myself, but I'm guessing there might be a chance to find it ready made, depending on where you live. There's this website called "JustHungry.com" and it's got a great bean paste recipe, very similar to the one here. You can use any other filling I guess, as long as it's thick enough to be shaped into a ball and won't turn liquid when cooking (many fruit jellies will bubble up and come out of the cookie). You can try chocolate paste, roasted chestnut (whole or pureed)...
Let me know how it comes out!
It looks like a Vietnamese "Bao" (a big steamed dumpling).
wow! Love it!!! Your mom has a gift!
I got a friend bring me Laduree Macarons last week, which I have been eating viciously (all 24 of them!). I haven't been so lucky making them though.
I'll try out your recipe! Wish me luck! :D
ps: I have the recipe for the rose petal butter cream, let me know if you would like to try it!
Would it be wrong to lightly spray them with varnish? Maybe the colors would hold better.
That Tootsie Roll that's hanging on the side just made it for me. My cat doesn't always aim right and this is just how it looks like... uuuuhhhh!!!
I think I could have only brought myself to eat it if I made it myself. No matter how yummy tasting... too much imagery to fully enjoy it. Still very funny though!!!
Sushi rice is made out of round grain, pretty much like risotto rice (arborio) and when it's cooked, you add a mixture of rice vinegar, sugar and a pinch of salt. I don't think there is a substitute for wasabi... and the closest think you can come by would be, ermm... horseradish I guess. It will get you that those nose tingling effect too. :D
(I hope "Sushi with Style" doesn't mind me answering this... I just LOVE sushi so much, I felt compelled!
(If you want a no-fail sushi rice recipe, leave me a message!)
You're right! I think using 2 contrasting colors created that effect. It looks very dramatic! :)
I would get a very funny look from my husband if I hanged the fruit basket to the ceiling.
But you are very daring.
Looks beautiful... but I suppose you should warn your friends not to touch it. You could cut yourself with that. No?
Here's a boom box I found randomly on google. Hope it's all right to put the link:
Since it's a very linear drawing, it should be fairly easy to make it any size you like.
ps: this picture does not belong to me and I'm not suggesting it for commercial use! :)
Hope this helps!
Nice! It reminded me of Billy Idol's song!
I buy Teac, Silverline, white brands... sometimes, there is a foam disk instead, but I think it only happened once. I think the main idea is, as with a lot of things we would throw away, to keep them. These just seem like a terrible waste of perfectly good plastic.
If you don't have enough to make a set of coasters, ask your friends to keep theirs for you. You'll have lot of them in no time! :)
Glad you do! These were really fun to do. Can't wait to have more plastic disks and do a different theme. :)

That clock is still on beta testing (they are working on it), so it's messing up a bit. Don't worry about it! :-)
Those slippers look great!
I think azuki beans don't have a taste as strong as regular beans, but mind you, I'm not a purist, so I think you can try with any other sort of beans if you have a hard time finding those. Cheers!
The english muffins are actually baked on a skillet or hot griddle, but truth is, you can do a lot of things with this dough. You can also stuffed it or make a foccacia (umm... olive oil & rosemary).
You can see the full intructions for the English Muffins in my blog. But all in all, you have to roll out the dough (thicker), cut out circles, let rise for 20 to 30 minutes on a large tray (with lots of corn flour!) and drop, one by one on the hot skillet, around 3 minutes on each side.
Let me know how it comes out!
I would definitely try different shades of green! Or maybe circles for a polka dot look. Thanks for this How-to!
