This time guys we’re gonna talk about food! we have to talk about this! I mean Christmas and New Year is coming! that means tons of food! different types of different stuff! :D
I have to say that a friend of mine is a really amazing in the kitchen! that’s why I made an amazing interview :D !!
Hello Hello Lita! (yes the name of my friend is Lita Kino) well I would like to ask you somethings about food and your cooking skills :D!
The first question will be…
♥~ what does cooking means to you?
LK. Cooking has become more than just a hobby to me, I think it’s a way to express your creativity and love to others and always a good reason to get together with the ones you love ♣
♥~ Talking about creativity, what do you think about artistic food? (yes like cute happy food)
LK. Oh I love those! I definitely think it is an awesome work, with so much dedication and love on it. ♣
♥~ Now that you said love, is it better to cook for someone you love?
LK. Of course it is! You put your heart and soul in it! ♣
♥~ What do you prefer, salty or sweet food?
LK. Sweet. Desserts are always fun to make, and let’s face it, everyone loves a good dessert! ♣
♥~ You’re so right Lita! desserts makes me smile! and now that we’re talking about this which dessert is your favorite?
LK. mmm… let me see~ Strawberry Daifuku could be one of my favorites, it’s easy to make and it’s really good!
♥~ Sounds really good! °¬° can you give me the recipe?
LK. Ok, here it goes. You need a Cup of Mochiko,1/4 Cup Sugar, 2/3 Cup Water, 2 or 3 Drops red or green food coloring, and Cornstarch or Potato Starch, for dusting, that’s just optional and Anko. You can fill them with Strawberries or Raspberries.
Scrape down the sides of the bowl as best you can with a rubber spatula, otherwise they’ll get all gross when the dough is microwaved. To make the Mochi add the mochiko, sugar, water, and food coloring to a microwave safe bowl. Stir well, making sure there are no lumps.
Cover lightly with plastic wrap and mircowave for 2 minutes. Remove bowl from the microwave and stir VERY well. Dough will be much thicker, but there should still be some raw parts underneath. I like to use a sturdy silicone spatula to mix the dough at this point.
Place the dough back in the microwave for 1 more minute. Open the door and peek–did the dough start sinking as soon as the door opened? If so, the dough was inflating while cooking, which means it’s ready. If not, microwave for 1 more minute and check again.
You shouldn’t have to microwave for more than 4 minutes total. One the dough deflates when you open the door, remove the dough from the microwave and scrape it out onto a cornstarch-coated cutting board. Pat the hot dough but be careful! cuz It’s hot! with cornstarch and flatten it out a little. Cut into 10-12 even pieces. Add 1 tsp of filling to each piece and gently press the edges together to seal. The best way to keep these fresh is to individually wrap them in plastic wrap and then refrigerate. If you leave them out, unwrapped, they’ll get dry and tough. That’s pretty much it! Enjoy!
♥~ Sounds really complicated but tasty and fun! is it hard for you to cook?
LK. Hehe~ it’s not that complicated. I have to say sometimes it is hard but always fun!
♥~ The most complicated dish in your opinion would be…
LK. Maybe the Japanese Cheesecake
♥~ I’ll have to try that some day! thanks so much for this amazing interview! but before we finished I have to ask you one more thing! what would do cook for Christmas?
LK. Aw, no problem! thank you for doing it! Maybe i’ll make a japanese strawberry cake or just try the American Fruit cake.
Thanks so much once again, and remember guys! if you wanna do something fun for any occasion you can try Strawberry Daikufu, and you can add a sweet Fruit Cake this christmas for the ones you love! :D !
♥~ Love you all ~♥
