Feisty Tuna Roll

The Feisty Tuna Roll is a little bit spicy but not overwhelmingly so, and definitely tasty. The avocado helps cool it down a little more, so even people who aren’t huge fans of spicy foods will probably like this. 🙂 Ingredients 6 sheets nori 3 cups sumeshi 1 large avocado 2 tbsp mayonnaise 2 tsp

This is another one of the tuna rolls that we made oh, about three months ago. Behind? Who, me? Okay, fine, you win. I am waaaaaay behind in my sushi posts, and I’m not done yet! We still have a bunch more tuna rolls left to post! I know what you’re thinking, “Maybe you should

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

Maguro Karakuchi Spicy Tuna

<p>Amazing. Just... amazing. That's the only way I know how to describe this roll (okay, so not the <em>only</em> way, but definitely one of the best ways!) This has been added to my list of my favorite sushi rolls, so it's gotta be good, right? The Srirachia sauce adds a pleasant kick, but it's mellowed out by the mayonnaise so it's perfect for those of us who don't like super

Tuna Roll

<p>Finally, finally, FINALLY I have gotten around to using raw fish in my sushi! I know, I know, it's been over a year, but can you believe I used to not eat raw fish? Yeah I know blasphemy, right? (It's not my fault... I didn't grow up eating fish because my mom is allergic!) Well don't worry, I have seen the light! Hehe. I now <em>love</em> sushi that uses

Super California Roll

You would think that putting unagi on top of a California Roll really isn’t anything too special. I mean come on, it’s just your typical California Roll with some eel on top. You would think. You would be wrong. This roll is amazing! We first tried it at Honda-Ya when we went there for Son’s

Japanese Potato Salad

<p>A couple of months ago, I was offered a cookbook called <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FHarumis-Japanese-Home-Cooking-Contemporary%2Fdp%2F1557885206%3Fie%3DUTF8%26s%3Dbooks%26qid%3D1196508470%26sr%3D8-1&tag=sush-20&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325">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="http://feistyfoodie.blogspot.com/2007/10/does-this-make-my-lunch-look-phat.html">Bento

Does This Make My Lunch Look Phat?

<p>About a month ago, <a href="http://feistyfoodie.blogspot.com/">Yvo from Feisty Foodie</a> announced <a href="http://feistyfoodie.blogspot.com/2007/10/does-this-make-my-lunch-look-phat.html">"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
