After all, I wouldn't have this sushi blog if I didn't love it, now would I? As with any trip I take, my first thought is of what sort of good food can be found in the
<p>Ever since I was very young, mochi has been a special treat for me. My mother would take us to the Japanese part of town every once in a while to stock up on the Japanese foods that she liked, and we would always stop by the little bakery in the shopping center. We each were allowed to pick one piece of mochi to take home with us and eat later.
<p>When Son and I booked our trip to Hawaii, we knew that in addition to trying all the best local food, we wanted to have sushi. Lots of sushi. There are many other sushi restaurants we are looking to try (one can never have too much sushi) but since it is close to our hotel, we decided to try <a href="http://www.sanseihawaii.com/index.html">Sansei Seafood Restaurant and Sushi Bar</a> first.</p> <a class="bigPic" href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/ballerinagirl/2878001661/" title="Mural on the
<p>Bacon. Anyone who knows me even the least bit knows that I adore bacon. Sometimes, a little too much. So why not put it in sushi?

<p>For nearly two years now, I have been sharing my love of sushi with you. Every week, new sushi recipes or restaurant reviews. From reading Sushi Day, one might assume my entire life revolves around sushi - many are surprised that it does not.</p> <p>Sushi is only one of many things I make in my kitchen. I love to bake, and I cook many other dishes as well. For quite some
<p>Not long ago I was, quite frankly, an internet noob. Sure, I've used the internet for email and instant messaging since the '90s, but aside from researching for school papers, my internet use rarely went beyond that. Of course I was on MySpace and Facebook in high school and college - everyone was on such social networking sites, and that was often the best way to stay in touch with my friends
<p>Many things can happen in a year. A year ago, I was in Santa Barbara for my cousin's wedding - one of the most beautiful weddings I have ever been to (and I've been to quite a few!) That was one of the only times I had ever been to Santa Barbara.</p> <p>A year ago, my brother <a href="http://sushiday.com/archives/2008/04/20/a-taste-of-yellow/">relapsed</a>. He has been undergoing treatment for the past year, and should be cancer-free
