Vanilla muffins with raspberries and chocolate chips, dusted with sugar, to take in to a potluck-going-away-party-morning-briefing at work tomorrow (if I don't eat all of them first! They turned out way better than I'd expected!)

Also, drinking it, not cooking, but... mmm... Scotch...

Chickpea salad - not really cooking, just tossing together with olive oil & vinegar, pepper, and chopped sweet pepper.

Also, roasting up some asparagus with olive oil. The house smells heavenly.

@Zarathustra: Are those types of muffins pretty good? I don't usually like muffins, but I love vanilla and raspberry! Scotch = 10/10, would drink again.

@VerDeTerre: I have always wanted to try Chickpea salad, but I have never gotten around to making it. I'll have to throw that all together tomorrow night!

I would like to make some hanami dango again tonight. I made some the other night. My husband LOVED them and we both tried them chocolate sauce. *q*
I am, like, drooling over the thought. I love the way the Hershey's Chocolate Syrup tastes with the dango. This time I will remember to add lots of sugar, because I forgot last time!

Delicious! Sadly, my coworkers thought so too, which meant I didn't get to eat as many as I'd wanted!
Recipe (if we're calling my heavily altered version of a recipe for something else a "recipe") was pretty simple too- 400-degree oven, 2 cups bisquick(or similar), 1/2 cup chocolate chips, 1/3 cup sugar, 2/3 cup milk, 2tbsp canola oil, 1tsp vanilla extract, 1 egg, all stirred together, then poured into little tiny muffin cups, and one raspberry pressed into the center, then baked for 10-12 minutes.

Aha - tonight I made Chicken Fricassee - well for me I made Quorn Pork Steak Fricassee but whatever - for Him Indoors Chicken Fricassee! The lucky blighter. Not made it before. It was lovely. Fresh parsley and tarragon. Then I made a nice low sugar strawberry tart to use up some strawberries I bought. Had that with creme fraiche. Along with doing some marking and overtaking my work goal for this week (less to do next week) and stomping all over Dragon Age Inquidsition MP, it's been a good day.

In my land we do not have bisquick, but I found a recipe for home-made Bisquick I wonder if you'd think that this would suffice for your recipe?

Without having made that mix myself, I can't say for certain, but it certainly looks like it would work!

I didn't really make it, but I helped make it at work (I work in a kitchen)

You didn't ask me directly but you can have my opinion anyway. That mix would probably work but I'm wondering about the shortening. Bisquick doesn't have the shortening in it, oil is used instead and it's a really dry mix. The homemade mix would be "wetter". I don't know if that would affect the final muffins in any way. I'm sure they'd be really moist though. (You might want to watch out for over browning when baking too.) If there's any kind of dry biscuit mix available in your stores, those should work just as well as the Bisquick.

You make a valid point! I'll check my cake/pancake/biscuit mix aisle at the grocers this week - as those muffins sounded divine

Those muffins would work with white chocolate chips....

That was actually one of the changes I'd made to the recipe I started from- I didn't have any white chocolate, and I tend to like milk and dark chocolates better anyways! It'd definitely work though! Also... why are my muffins getting so much attention?

Learning to make onigiri (rice balls) with a twist. When I started, they'd be colored with food coloring, then I used furikake, a series of seasonings with fish flakes, nori flakes, sesame seed, dehydrated egg or fruit, spice and salt in the ingredients.

The store that used to sell them went out of business and I can't remember the exact name of the flavor.. but I used to get these jumbo muffins that had to do with mocha and cappucino and there was some kind of chips in them (maybe that's where the mocha came in?).. they were absolute heaven. That same store sold a potato salad made with 3 or 4 kinds of potatoes and there was chunks of cheese in it. More absolute heaven.

I've never been able to find anything like them in any other store.
