Other sushi includes types of sushi that don’t quite fit in so well to the other categories. This includes inari-zushi and sumeshi, the sushi rice.

Tuna Cucumber Watermelon

<p>These are cute little tuna appetizers made to look like watermelons. Great for parties, they make perfect finger-food, and are much less work than making a whole bunch of sushi for a party! Not to mention, they are delicious!</p> <p>This recipe has a lot of contrasting flavors. The cool of the cucumber versus the heat of the Siracha sauce. The soft, yielding texture of the tuna, as opposed to the snappy

Orange-Flavored Mochi

<p>Lately, I've really been wanting to participate in more food blogging events, but I've refrained because the don't fit into the theme of Sushi Day, and I don't want too much non-sushi randomness on here. I would love to cook and bake more but, well, I'll save that for when I have a more general food blog. (Which is hopefully coming soon!) However, when I saw the theme for this month's

spicy hamachi gunkan maki

Spicy Hamachi Gunkan Maki

I love yellowtail. We all know that. You might also know that I love the mayonnaise mix that I used in the Maguro Karakuchi Spicy Tuna Roll. (I put it in tuna salad, and I’m seriously considering hard-boiling some eggs and putting it in egg salad!) So of course, I had to see what happened

Cheese Age

<p>I first introduced you to Cheese Age waaaay back when I first tried them at Honda-Ya for Son's birthday. Yeah, I'm a bit behind in my posts, can you tell? :D Anyways, I promised you I would try making them and then write a post about them... and I did! Make them anyways. I made them for my great-aunt's Christmas party the Saturday after Thanksgiving, and they were a

Japanese Potato Salad

<p>A couple of months ago, I was offered a cookbook called <a href="">Harumi's Japanese Home Cooking, by Harumi Kurihara</a>, to review and try recipes from. Of course, I have been so swamped lately, I have barely had time to make sushi, let alone review a cookbook. Finally, I had some time to look through it and flag a few recipes I wanted to try. This coincided perfectly with Yvo's <a href="">Bento

Does This Make My Lunch Look Phat?

<p>About a month ago, <a href="">Yvo from Feisty Foodie</a> announced <a href="">"Does This Make My Lunch Look Phat?</a>, a contest on her blog. She makes a bento for lunch every day, so her contest is to create a bento box and blog about it. I was super excited when I heard about this... I have loved looking at all her different daily bento boxes, and have wanted to make my own for

stuffed somen salad

Stuffed Somen Salad

Every year the weekend of Thanksgiving, my Japanese great aunts throw a huge Christmas party. The entire family is invited, so it’s a huge day of craziness, fun, and tons of really good Japanese food. I have fond memories of eating sushi and somen salad (somen is a type of Japanese noodle) and watching while

Independence Day Sushi Parfait

<p>Happy Independence Day! I hope everyone is having a fun Fourth of July celebration! Well, my American readers anyways. Sorry everyone else. :( Now don't get mad at me, because I <em>know</em> this isn't really sushi, or even that close, but I'm going to post it anyways! Because I can. :D </p>

inari con gambas al ajillo

Inari Con Gambas Al Ajillo

On Father’s Day, after I was finished making the sushi, my mom made tapas. My sister always requests them, because she went to Spain over spring break on a trip with some of her teachers and classmates from her high school. She’s such the world traveller… plus she got to go to Kenya in middle
