Happy Food

26 October 2010

There are some snacks that just put a big smile on your face and they are most definitely treats that you are never too old for...

Making onigiri or bento puts a whole new spin on 'playing with your food' These rice balls have seaweed faces with bunny cut outs for the eyes!

Freshly made sushi and pickled ginger at my favourite Japanese restaurant...

The Hummingbird bakery never fails to disappoint...

I tried one of their Woopie pies which I think looks like a very fat macaron or oreo. Yummy but not quite as good as a proper cupcake!

A quick trip to the supermarket for some cupcake ingredients and I revert back to a child in the sweets aisle..

We're all big kids really.

Homemade lemon and ginger cupcakes with lemon frosting. The daisies are an ugprade from the instant Tom and Jerry cake mix with the rice paper decorations that I insisted on buying when I was younger!

  11. As much as I should say cake, it's probably got to be my dad's crispy roast pork or roast duck! There's nothing like a family meal where no-one is speaking cos you're all gorging on meat! xxx

  12. I wasn't hungry... but then I read your post. Risotto is my happy food. Plus, after half an hour of stirring I've usually forgotten if something's made me unhappy, so I can sit down to enjoy some food with a nice, positive clean slate.

  43. Thanks Winnie I love my rings too, not as tasty as your jelly ring :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. WINNIE. OMG. These pictures make me crave Japanese food and sweets! Everything looks so delicious. I'm literally drooling. I bet you had an awesome time consuming all that. I'm just wondering why I didn't get a share! Haha, just kidding.

    My happy foods....basically everything. I feel like a human compost heap. I love food, in general. And I'm pretty open to new happy foods, so my list changes frequently. But gummy bears are the best things ever.

  45. Those foods are just too cute ! Aww !

    ReplyDelete
  46. Your food always looks too pretty to eat! I think my favorite things to eat are actually very visually unappealing--like curries; usually so brown-orangeish-looking...
