I know it's been FOREVER since my last post. The holidays just sucked everything out of me this year and left me with a New Year's resolution... to post more regularly. I've decided to change my format since it seems that I have more to share about "easy-peasy" recipes and ideas that help me get through every day life vs strictly Japanese inspired recipes. So, here's a quickie on some easy holiday ideas I had for this year. Better late than never! 1st - a cute favor for my kids classes this year. Sugar free hot cocoa, a candy cane and some miniature marshmallows in a bag with a cute sticker. Voila!
2nd - an easy hostess gift for friends. Krusteaz Pumpkin Spice Quick Bread , $1 ceramic mini loaf pans from Michael's all wrapped up in cellophane and fastened with some star wired ribbon - curled with a chopstick.
* Added 1/2 cup of applesauce to the bread mix to make it more moist and it turned out deeelicious!
