Hot Pink Flower Kazari Sushi

I was one of those girls growing up who hated the color pink. I would not buy anything pink. I would not wear pink, except for ballet, because you really can’t avoid it there, but given a choice I’d rather wear that purple leotard – not the pink one. Give me the black tights –

Mickey Mouse Kazari Sushi

I am not really a morning person, but I’ve always had this positive association with getting up early and getting to see the sunrise – it always makes me really happy. And I think this comes from my childhood, where as a family… we weren’t really early risers if we could help it, but about

Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes

All the ooey gooey beefy messiness of a sloppy joe, with the flavors of a philly cheesesteak? We’re making philly cheesesteak sloppy joes today! Do you ever have something that just sticks in your mind, and you can’t stop thinking about it? I bookmarked this recipe for philly cheesesteak sloppy joes from the Dinner Then

Black and white triangle kazari makizushi

Growing up, I didn’t really wear makeup except for the occasional dance show or Halloween. But the older I’ve gotten, the more makeup kind of feels like a shield against the world. Oh, well, I have to wear it because I’m going to look washed out if I’m filming and I’m not wearing makeup. Oh,

Broccoli Cheddar Soup

As the weather gets colder, I’m really getting in the mood for soups. Any kind of soups. One soup that I’ve never actually made at home until now, but has always been really good when I’ve tried it, is broccoli cheddar soup. BUT I’m lactose-intolerant, so I can’t really go for the kind of soups

What makes it really really terrible is when there’s an ice breaker. Does anybody actually like this? I can never come

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Just like pretty much everyone else out there, I hated vegetables as a kid. I was not a fan of really any type of vegetables. Lucky for me my parents never tried to feed me brussels sprouts so I didn’t have the hate for brussels sproutts that a lot of people have, but in general

Traffic Light Kazari Makizushi

Life often feels like a series of stops and gos. Especially here in the time of covid. Feeling motivated, have good ideas, energetic for once? Let’s gooooo! And then you remember. We’re in the middle of a pandemic. Everything’s terrible. And energy? Who has energy these days? So be kind to yourself. Remember that everything’s

Green spiral kazari sushi

When I make this kazari sushi, I tend to make a bunch of rolls all at once. So I’ll color a bunch of rice, cut up all my ingredients, and then attempt as many different kazari sushi rolls as I can think of that day. Inevitably, I’ll have a little of this, a little of
