Delicious Homemade Rolls – Based on a Japanese Recipe

I have been searching the net for a recipe to resemble specific rolls dating back to early 70’s, and my memory of summer camp in Ellenville, NY.   Mrs. Kormeluk was the cook at that time, so rolls similar to these were made daily, and served with a cup of cold milk, as an afternoon snack for all the campers.

I have tried several recipes, and tested the texture and taste of these rolls with my children, who also were lucky enough to enjoy the same snack at the same camp, in the 90’s, but by that time, these were baked by Mrs. Tinio.  

Happy Thanksgiving Day!

It is time again to give thanks for all our blessings and to spend time together with family and friends. However, this year will not be as festive as always, due to the various limitations due to the raging COVID-19 virus.
Today I will not be posting any new recipes but will provide links to my previous posts, for your convenience.

Crocheting Fun and Counting Stitches

Crocheting is a fun activity anytime, but even more fun during a quite intense election time.  While others were busy counting votes, I enjoyed counting stitches of my crocheting project.

I managed to crochet a beautiful baby blanket and a baby hat, which I will display in this post. 

Chocolate Cake with Fleur De Sel Caramel Filling – Recipe

Another cake challenge proposed to me by my daughter a while back, as a choice for her Birthday cake.  I love trying out new recipes, so I was ready to tackle this one as well.  You can never go wrong with chocolate.  
This chocolate cake consists of 4 layers of cake, with chocolate ganache, creamy salted caramel, and toasted almonds. If this doesn’t make your mouth water, I don’t know what will!
