THE STORY — NONABRUNA. NonaBruna is a brand of handmade products of Lola Giardino, Argentinian designer who lives in Barcelona, who cooks, who sews and molds pottery in her little workshop creating unique pieces with history. The inspiration comes to her for her two marvelous grandmothers, La Nona and la Abuelina. Of them, she learnt to appreciate the things that are made with patience and dedication. La Nona, italian, she moved to Argentina during the war, she was dressmaker of high sewing and she converted to aprons all the dresses that were no more used.

The daddy’s ñoquis with butter that she perpetrated every time that we came to visit her are still my favorite meal. La Abuelina, she is a painter; she sews aprons, oven gloves and other kitchen stuff with pieces of fabric that she got from everywhere. Because of her I learnt cooking and so much other things. In my last trip to Argentina, la abuelina offered me fabrics, buttons, and old laces. Most-Pinned | How To and Instructions. STAINED GLASS NOODLE — Lady and Pups. Ahum… so. I was totally going to unveil my-first-time-ever… ground-shaking… storm-wielding… SALIVA-BURSTING TWO-TIER CELEBRATION BAKE that’s, gonna, rock, your, world! But I fucked it up. Yep. Just, you know, the typical shit that happens to all of us, the cake batter crashing… buttercream breaking… bananas being bananas and the entire cake wiggling in a funky move like it was the 80′s and finally steadied itself in a very unattractive slant. I’m not sayin’ this with disrespect cuz I’m angry and all… but seriously, you bakers out there are fucking crazy.

Thus, brings us to this. I didn’t mean to back-to-back two noodle recipes, I mean didn’t you hear a word I said? Because I have a cake to fix. Servings 4: There are two different types of commonly sold “cellophane/glass noodles”. Ingredients: adapted from The Hurricane Club To make the pesto: Toast the cashews on a skillet over medium heat until lightly browned and smell nutty. Transfer the pesto to a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Homemade Sushi: Nigiri and Gunkanmaki Style. I've always been a lover of sushi, this is in part due to the abundance of fresh salmon in the Pacific northwest and the large number of Japanese immigrants, which resulted in an abundance of really good and really affordable sushi places around the town I grew up in.

It wasn't until a couple years ago when my friend Heather mentioned that she made her own sushi that the thought occurred to me that I could actually make it myself. I was still pretty timid about working with raw seafood, however, and the idea of making the perfect sushi rice, both malleable yet sticky, made me a little nervous, so I ended up putting it off.

But then something magical happened. I got a Zojirushi, which is like the Mercedes-Benz of rice makers, and has a special sushi rice setting on it, so it would be near-impossible for me to mess up the process of making the sushi rice. Gunkanmaki takes nigiri one step further, and encases the rice rectangle and seafood in a fence of nori, also known as seaweed paper. Meals in Spain. Special spaghetti cake.
