The Dessert That Makes Everyone Happy! Flan!

Does anybody remember the episode of Sabrina the Teenage Witch when she conjures a giant flan in the cafeteria to conclude a day of magical hilarity? Well I do. And it always struck me that flan didn’t really seem like a very mainstream choice for a high school celebration. Anyway, I enjoy flan, mostly for the burnt sugar syrup that streams all over it when you flip it upside down on the plate.

How to Make Homemade Sushi Like A Pro

It turns out that you don’t have to train for 30 years to make sushi at home that tastes amazing. Every time I decide to make homemade sushi, the results astound me. With no formal training and my only real guide being my personal obsession as a consumer of the japanese favorite, it’s surprisingly doable. I won’t say that it’s easy because it takes plenty of preparation and specific ingredients that aren’t always easy to find. But if you have the determination and a passion for sushi, it’s doable. Here is my fairly, foolproof method.

Magic Matcha Cake

I recently discovered what is called “Magic Cake”. From what I’ve gathered, it is called this because one batter goes into a pan, and three completely different layers come out. I can confirm that this occurred. The bottom layer was almost like a¬†gelatin, the middle a custard, and the top something similar to a sponge cake.

My magic cake recipe happened to call for matcha. Ever since my husband and I went to Morimoto’s restaurant in Maui, we have been obsessed with matcha desserts. Theirs is called ‘Road to Matcha’. And it is with that dish in mind that I created my first restaurant style dessert.

Easy Night In

Sometimes I get tired. Ok, so I work from home and I have nothing to complain about. But sometimes I get tired of the constant grind of working, cooking, cleaning, repeat. So when my husband, yes my husband, taught me this easy dish, it became a key tool in the tool kit.

So tonight we are using some amazing ingredients from Trader Joe’s to make an exceptional 20 minute puff pastry pizza.

Thanks to their monthly Fearless Flyer issue, I found this AMAZING fresh Burrata at Trader Joe’s. It’s a type of fresh mozzarella that has a surprise! creamy filling. It’s delicious. If only I had some fresh truffle to shave on top of it with a bit of olive oil and I would eat it by itself.
