Because this is my blog, and I can do what I want, I'd like to share some blogs I love with you:
Food Librarian: I love her bundt recipes! I cannot wait to try the match mochi one! I think because she's also JA (Japanese American), but she seems like family. Or it might be that her love of jello reminds me of my jello obsessed JA mom. I think jello just reminds her of all the agar jellies in Japanese desserts. I will have to make her the broken glass jello that the Food Librarian has on her blog!
FOODjimoto: Another Southern California Japanese American lady! I love her furikake chex mix, it is the sort of Hapa food I love, like spam musubi. She does a whole gamut of food, from traditional Japanese home cooking to guacamole! I love the pictures of her family get togethers, which has inspired me to take more pictures!
Makiko Itoh: Her post on her mother moved me to tears. She writes both Just Hungry and Just Bento, two amazing sites that have tons of recipes, from bento staples to baking. She's even got an amazing bento cookbook, which I've literally read in bed just for entertainment (I do this with all good cookbooks) She's sick right now and going through a kitchen remodel, so she hasn't been posting as frequently as I spam her sites.
David Lebovitz: The man who made my very stoic grandpa grin like a Cheshire cat. I made his German Chocolate Cake for my grandpa's birthday, and it was AMAZING. I made the filling, and bought a can of Duncan Hines filling to do a blind taste test with my mother, and she literally nearly spit up the storebought after tasting David's. He's that good.
**Disclaimer** No one asked me to do these links, and I asked for nothing in return. This blog has like no traffic and its mostly my own personal diary, so don't be thinking anything sneaky like promotions and such. I love these blogs and want to share them with my friends and family so =P
And because this is a boring post with no pictures: Here's my dog as a puppy!
