Raspberry Lemon Twist Rolls

No one can argue that presentation is important. When it comes to food, the same dish can taste better when presented in a beautiful way. And the first impression. Food that looks beautiful or unique gives me such excitement. I wanted to try making this twist roll for a while, and I finally decided to […]

German Pretzels

Seasons and seasonal events are always a good inspiration. Well, it’s October… October Fest… Germany… German Pretzels… Forming the dough into these shapes was so much fun! These turned out beautiful!! They were delicious as they were, but my husband loved dipping them into the vegan cheese sauce I made. They were so good! My […]

Olive Oil from Italy

A friend of ours recently took a trip to Italy. While she was there, she visited an olive farm, where she got to sample some olive oil. She had some oil shipped home, and got us this beautifully packaged one. To enjoy the oil, so I baked some crusty bread to dip into the oil. […]

Hijiki Buns and SFB&J Buns

I made these buns a while ago but forgot to make a post about them. This is a Hijiki seaweed and carrot bun. And this is a Sunflower butter and jam bun. Both were so good. You can take one of each with you for lunch. The Hijiki one will be your meal, and the […]

Earl Grey Cardamom Nectarine Toast

This is a great time of the year for someone like me who loves stone fruit. I like them all, but my favorite is probably nectarine. When I look at the shelf where peaches, nectarines, and plums are displayed next to one another, I typically go for the nectarine, mostly because when it comes to […]

Melon Bread: Matcha & Raspberry

Melon bread is a popular Japanese bread. This is basically a sweet bun with crunchy cookie-like top. I’ve talked about melon bread before. Orange Melon Bread. Vanilla and Raspberry. Lemon. The type of this bread is called melon bread (my mother always makes them with melon flavor), but you can make them with any flavor […]

Bialy and V-Sausage Gravy

I think I discovered a new favorite. Bialy and Gravy! This was my first Bialy experience. I found it at a farmers market, and I had to try it. It is quite substantial and chewy like bagel, but much lighter. I enjoyed it as it was, but I thought it would be fun to serve […]
