Happy Birthday To My Husband.....Adventures in Cooking
Today is my wonderful, cute, funny, sweet husbands birthday! I made him his favorite cake "Carrot Cake." My flickr friend Sioux had shared this recipe awhile back, so I really wanted to try it. It did not disappoint! So delicious!!!
My husband loves his moped. He has worked all winter rebuilding its engine, so I thought it was fitting to do a moped themed gift.
I have been wanting to make my own sushi rolls of some sort, just to see if I could make them successfully myself. I make "california rolls" with imitation crab, avocado, and cucumber. I made them the inside out way with the white rice and sesame seeds on the outside. They were delicous! I plan on making them again with shrimp.
I found a great tutorial
The rice is the main time consuming part. It must be prepared at least 2 hours before making the roll. I loved the whole process. You can do each step and then walk away.
I plan on working on some pieces for my shop and such here soon. With Christmas and multiple birthdays I haven't had much extra time. And with all this baking and experimenting I've just been having too much fun!!
Have a great Monday!
