I loooooove Jap food.  Especially sushi!  In preparation for tomorrow’s New Year dinner.  I plan on making some sushi.  When I say some. It’s usually enough to feed a small army of 30.  That’s why I seldom make em’ because when I do, I make a lot and share them with my large family.  It’s quite tiring and time consuming.  But worth it when I see the empty platter.  ^^ Part of tomorrow’s sushi menu is the Tamago.  Which I make a day early, or else I would be on my feet 5-6 hours with all the things to be done.

This is my version of a Tamago.  I got a recipe online and tweeked it a little.  Since I hate measuring.  I used a small ladle to be my measuring cup.  So bear with me with this.  But the mixture will all depend on your taste bud whether you like it a bit salty (which will make the egg more sturdy) or sweet (which will make the egg more sticky and harder to roll) my preferance is in between.

Tamago

Ingredients:

8 eggs

¾ ladle of kikoman

¾ ladle of milk

¾ ladle of mirin (Japanese Rice Wine)

2 tbsp sugar

A dash of Hondashi powder

*oil for greasing the pan

Procedure:

<!–[if !supportLists]–>· <!–[endif]–>Mix in all the ingredients.

<!–[if !supportLists]–>· <!–[endif]–>Strain the mixture.  It will make the mixture more smoother in texture.

<!–[if !supportLists]–>· <!–[endif]–>Grease the pan then pour in one ladle of the mixture.

<!–[if !supportLists]–>· <!–[endif]–>Roll it to one side, then pour another ladle full of mixture and roll it to the other side. Repeat till it’s up to your preferred thickness.

I usually make 4 recipe of the mixture.  As I said I’m feeding a lot of people. O_o

By straining, you’ll be able to take out small egg shells that you missed plus the clump of egg whites will not be visible in your final product.

This post is sooooo due.  My niece and I tried our hands in baking some cookies for Christmas.  So here’s our little endeavor.  Sorry for the lack of pictures.  My hands were really greasy and sticky.

We got the recipe from one of my niece’s text book. We tried following the recipe to the tee.  But naturally we went through some trial and error.  Anyhoo, after mixing all the ingredients.  We ended up with a crumbly dough.  It took some elbow grease to get the consistency of the dough just right. We added some flour to smooth it out.  Then rolled and flattened it with a rolling pin.  We got a star cutter and cut away.

We carefully take the cut out stars and placed them on the cookie sheet lined with wax paper.  It was a bit tricky because the cookies break off easily.  We baked it  as instructed.  And here’s the outcome!

A little twist with the recipe, I made some small circle cuts and then put candied walnut on some of it.  ^^
