Bake It in a Cake. 10 Japanese foods you can make at home worldwide. Even though Japanese cuisine has more or less infiltrated most of the major cities worldwide, domestic foodstuffs and condiments still remain mostly inaccessible and rare in most countries.

10 Japanese foods you can make at home worldwide

Japanese blogger Madame Riri shares a list of 10 Japanese foods that can be made at home, no matter where that may be. We’d like to call it the lifesaver list for Japanese abroad, or the inspiration list for non-Japanese who would love an authentic taste of Japan in their own kitchen. 1. Pseudo Chinese Noodles In Japan, “yakisoba” or Chinese noodles can be readily bought at supermarkets for as low as 30 yen per serving.

Simply throw in some sodium bicarbonate, otherwise known as baking soda, together with some salt when boiling the pasta. 2. “Natto,” fermented soybeans, is a traditional Japanese food known for its slimy texture and characteristic smell, which earned it the nickname of “stinky beans” among many non-Japanese people. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.

Irish Soda Bread

So I’m a little bit Irish–enough to have freckles but not enough to feel like I’m allowed to wear “Kiss Me I’m Irish” tee-shirts and drink myself into a stupor on the 17th of March. Plus, I’m not really the drink-myself-into-oblivion type of person as it is. I am, however, the cook-according-to-the-occasion type of person, so you get to experience Irish weekend…after St. Patrick’s day. I meant to post this last night, but fell asleep while watching The Horse Whisperer (sorry, Erin), so you get to have a little of a belated Irish holiday.

Irish soda bread. Irish Soda Bread (recipe adapted from Edible Ireland) 2 C whole-wheat flour2 C all-purpose flour1 t salt1 t baking soda1 2/3 C buttermilk (I used 7 T dry buttermilk powder and 1 2/3 C water, separated) Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Add the liquid (either buttermilk or the water if using dried buttermilk), and mix until combined using the flat beater paddle (or by hand, of course). Let it cool thoroughly before slicing. Avocado strawberry + goat cheese sandwich. I am about to show you something that is way too much fun.

avocado strawberry + goat cheese sandwich

And amazingly delicious! Maybe sandwiches aren’t what you call fun but this may change that. Remember last week when I was talking about how I only like avocado mixed in things or made into guacamole? Please disregard that statement. Apparently for me a sprinkle of salt is the key. After our Sunday bike ride, gardening, house cleaning, and still being wiped from Saturday’s hike, all of a sudden I needed food fast! I mashed up an avocado with salt, threw 2 slices of bread in the toaster, and slathered it on. I know a million people have made avocado toast before. But today we take avocado toast to the next level with a few simple variations. But then I’ll just move to the next berry that is. Two variations are hot + two are cold. Soft Buttery Pretzels and Pretzel Bites. I love soft pretzels, but I hate having to go to the mall to get a good one.

Soft Buttery Pretzels and Pretzel Bites

I always wanted to make them at home, but assumed they were really hard work. I’d heard about how they need to be steamed or boiled before baking and that it’s a touchy process, so I just steered clear and hit up the pretzel joint whenever I was at the mall. A few years ago, though, the hubster decided to give them a shot. The recipe he used was pretty time consuming and there were a lot of steps involved. The result? …and there was! All you need is yeast, salt, canola oil, all-purpose flour, sugar, and warm water (around 110 degrees). Once the dough is doubled in size, turn onto a clean, dry surface ( dust with flour, if necessary) and divide it into 12 equal pieces (about three and a half ounces each). Roll each piece into a rope, about 18 inches long. To shape the rope into a giant pretzel, lay it on the counter in a “U” shape.

Now fill a medium bowl with four cups of hot (boiling or close to it) water. Soft Breadsticks Recipe. Vegetarian & Vegan recipes food blog. Veggie Lasagna. Pages This Blog Friday, February 24, 2012 Veggie Lasagna Oh my...

Photo by Kelly Rossiter Hands down, the number one response I get from people when I mention that my children are both vegetarian is "but how do they get enough protein?

" Getting your daily requirement of protein is actually pretty easy. In fact, if you are eating meat, chances are you are consuming more protein than you need. Eating any kind of balanced diet simply requires a little thought and a well stocked pantry. Supercook: recipe search by ingredients you have at home. The Asylum Pantry.
