sushi #5

sushi #5

A few months ago I got some sushi at this place and they used rice paper instead of rice. The other night I was too lazy to make rice, so I thought I'd try it with rice paper. It was interesting...

Looks diseased, but those are sesame seeds between the rice paper and nori.

easter breakfast

french toast

More things I am not supposed to eat!

Cinnamon honey challah french toast with strawberries. They were out of raisin challah and I was only slightly disappointed. I didn't expect much going the night before Easter though. That is honey all over, not syrup!

Goes well with french press:

black & white

black and white

So I used this recipe from Smitten Kitchen (♥). The cookies didn't turn out flat at all like the pictures, but I loved the massive amount of salt in them. Salt plus chocolate = awesome.

I have been making chocolate chip cookies since I was about 7, so I know the basic recipe by heart. Always feels weird changing things! For the chocolate white chocolate chip cookies, I just added some cocoa and big pieces of white chocolate instead of semi-sweet. So good. So so good.

N.B. These put me into a coma, so I won't be making them again anytime soon. They are so pretty though, I had to share.

I had all these leeks I had to do something with. Ummmmmmm.

Red Pepper Flakes

Pretty tasty!

vegetables. amazing.


A couple of weeks ago I came home on a Sunday morning after possibly too many homemade cosmopolitans the night before. You could say the world was not quite solid yet and I was not quite ready to eat pretty much anything. My good friend suggested a big bowl of veggies. It was perfect.

Purple Onions
Bean Sprouts
Green Beans
Red Peppers
Rice Noodles
Fresh Ginger
Sesame Seeds

Before you get the wrong idea, I don't drink very often. This meal has become one of my recent favorites though and I've made it since. I am such a meat eater, I never thought I'd be able to just eat veggies and be full.

homemade sushi

sushi #3

Raw tuna
Cream cheese with one chopped up little red chili and minced fresh ginger
Sesame Seeds

This was ridiculously spicy. So good!

Since I haven't knitted anything in forever, I'm gonna keep track of my favorite food on here. At least for a little while.
