The proper way to cook rice?

And most Japanese cooks wash the rice and let it sit for a while before cooking it.

The Latest "Yay Me" thread

My biggest triumph has been bread machine Panettone and baozi (Japanese nikuman) steamed buns. Overcame my fear of yeast after decades.

Can I bring homemade food into Canada from US?

Check customs and agriculture Canada--don't think you can bring any prepared food (definitely no chicken at all at the moment) that is not vacuum sealed. Your tea should be OK but other stuff not sealed and with no ingredient list is not allowed, I think. Check

Cooking cake in batches, but one bowl of batter?

I do this with Dobos torte and never have a problem, especially if the layers are on the thinner side and bake quickly.

Can I Freeze Potato-Leek Soup (non-dairy)?

I would not freeze potatoes--changes the texture. I would enjoy it sooner than later--pureed stuff goes off faster...

Cabbage Rolls anyone?

I love them--they are soft and flavorful. I give them a quick rinse to get rid of the salt and go from there.

Cabbage Rolls anyone?

I just get the preserved cabbage leaves at the local Russian/Persian store; like the ones here: http://www.amazon.com/s/?ie=UTF8&... Just drain, roll, and go.

Gnocchi cooking question

Turn down the heat a bit, wait for a couple of minutes once they float to the top then remove. I think you are overcooking them.

Help me "round out" this menu for Easter.

I would do a green salad with fruit (spinach and strawberry/arugula and citrus) and serve the asparagus roasted (olive oil, salt, and pepper). Want to try to make this one day soon: http://toriavey.com/toris-kitchen/201...

Buttermilk dessert recipes?

There is a nice Danish buttermilk soup recipe somewhere... I think I googled.

Where to find melon pan?

I think Shilla bakery (Rockville or Annadale) has some--and they also do a fried do-nut version that was quite good--I think they call it soboro.

Pudding not right

Less cornstarch for sure--probably half the amount. Those would make great frozen treats, though...

DuPont Circle or surrounding area on a Friday night

The drinks are good at Russia House but the food at Mari Vanna is better (just down Connecticut Avenue). http://www.marivanna.ru/washington/

Secrets to easy kitchen cleaning?

Do people really run their dishwashers every day even if not full? Wow. We runs ours once or twice a week at most... but again, I hand wash all pots and pans and a lot of serving dishes.

Bagged lunch ideas- NO FRIDGE OR MICROWAVE!

In Japan most bentos are room temp. Rice is never refrigerated and the other things are usually salty enough to be OK for a few hours (unless it's 105 out). Things are work well are grilled salmon, chicken teriyaki, green beans, edamame, etc.

Bagged lunch ideas- NO FRIDGE OR MICROWAVE!

Totally. I pack room temp rice in the morning along with various leftovers (sometimes Japanese stuff sometimes not) in my bento box and it's totally fine until lunch.

What are you baking these days? Happy New Year January 2015 edition! [OLD]

Panettone in my bread machine. Found a great source for candied orange peel and after a bit of tweaking, it is turning out well each time. Using a food.com recipe for bread machines...

Soy Sauce: Dark vs. Light

I would call that dark soy sauce. Light is lighter in color (usukuchi in Japanese) and higher in sodium... I only use the standard dark soy sauce myself. The lighter one is nice if you are making something delicate and don't want a darker color, but really, I am not bothered storing an extra bottle...
