Slip ware by Takehiro Ito

I fell in love with this "Mashiko yaki" slip ware.
This is hand made by Takehiro Ito.
There are several slip pattern like this "ribbon" and "fence" and more.
Square shape is so nice to use for anything.
Mashiko yaki is famous for traditional craft ware which has strong and rustic style.
His new Mashiko yaki still has strong feeling, but fits our modern lifestyle.

My dad's strawberry short cake

My dad loves strawberry short cake.
My mom has been baking this cake for my dad's birthday every year.
But my dad wants to eat his favorite anytime he wants, so he decided to learn how to make it by himself.
In his "dad's notebook", between stock market information, there is the cake recipe now.
Good job, dad!
