Does anyone have any good recipes that involve rice paper?
I browsed an asian market for fun. And was really drawn to the rice paper. So I bought some. I tried to make some summer rolls with them, but they just tasted bland. I did not do a good job with them.
So now I have hundreds of sheets of rice paper and nothing to do with them. But I desperately want to use them.“Everybody has a secret world inside of them. All of the people of the world, I mean everybody. No matter how dull and boring they are on the outside, inside
them they've all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe.” -Neil Gaiman

Chinese jicama pancakes. I love these things. The recipe is a variation on a ritz cracker recipe using jicama, sunflower seeds, walnuts and green onions.
Because the boy has a sweet tooth, I always try to have stuff he can easily grab from the fridge. These are pumpkin pie bars made out of kabocha squash. I like adding a little maple syrup (not raw, I know!) to mine as I like the flavor of maple syrup and pumpkin. Mmmm.
Sorry the coloring of these photos is a bit off, too lazy to mess around in PS. I haven't been making much for elaborate things lately, so we've been mostly living off quick to whip up soups from the blender or juices."My comrades and my beloved, upon your way you shall meet men with hoofs; give them your wings.

Lazy and quick Asian chop salad with Chinese jicama pancakes sprinkled over top for crunch. I didn't sprout these mung beans. I haven't sprouted much lately, that's really bad . . . just been really focused on music and art lately. I'm slacking off. *clicks tongue at self*"My comrades and my beloved, upon your way you shall meet men with hoofs; give them your wings. And men with horns; give them wreaths of laurel.

I made a walnut cake with 7 minute icing for my dad's 67th birthday with a few adjustments to the recipe
I did 4 egg yolks + 1 egg instead of 4 eggs
got rid of the vanilla added a 1/4th cup of walnut liqueur
reduced milk from a cup to 3/4th cup
it was delicious not the best picture but best i can do we had some last night and my mom took half of it to workPerfectly robust chickens

7 minute icing? Isn't that a long time for icing?
I made fairy cakes with my daughter last night and the icing (red-was supposed to be pink)took less than two minutes including application time... what am i missing?
Oh also we were happy to find one had naturally made the shape of a heart. Organic red hearts!"We knew he was someone who had a tragic flaw, that's where his greatness came from"
