soft shell crab Thai curry

I did not cook soft shell crab curry last season, so I am making it this year.

The popular recipe seems to be stir-fried style curry with egg in it - I will go on my own way.

Dessert was UIRO, a famous sticky rice sweet from Nagoya.
There are similar sweets in other Asian countries and it is good after this spicy Asian food.

sardine pasta

I made a set of plates for serving main dishes - dia.25cm.

These plates have some depth, so they hold some sauce or soup.

Recently I have been more interested in making middle-sized dishes.

Big dishes looks nice at restaurants, but they are kind of a hassle to deal with at home.

This is a quick lunch with oil-marinated sardines that I made the other day.

I roasted branzino and served it vinaigrette-style.
My casual Italian food?

Grandma Fannie's Mandelbrod recipe

I love Mandelbrod.
It's like a cross between bread and cookies, like biscotti but softer.

I like the kind of sweets where you can really taste the flour.

This recipe contains less oil and sugar than the original, I think.
I added dried cranberries and apricots too.
I will try almond and orange peel next time.

New green glaze on white clay

The beautiful green in Central Park made me feel like mixing a fresh green glaze.
It is rainy today.
It will rain all week.
Spring rain.
