How to Make Mochi Ice Cream 雪糕糯米糍



Have you ever tried Mochi Ice Cream 雪糕 糯米糍 before?  These little gems are one of my childhood favorites.  They used to be occasional treats when I was young.  Besides it’s considered a little pricey for me when I was a kid, and that there weren’t that many places that sell them back in the good old days!  So, I cherished them whenever I get my hands on these delicious treats!  Fast forward to now, they are more widely available and not as expensive as in the past.

However, the good news is, I will show you how you can easily make them at home, with the help of my recipe and tutorial!  Best of all, you can create them using your favorite ice cream flavor!  That way, you can enjoy any flavor that your heart desired!  Mochi Ice Cream is a confection made from Japanese Mochi (pounded sticky rice dough) filled with a scoop of ice cream.  They might seems complicated to make, but actually quite simple.  Check out my video tutorial above for more tips and tricks.  There are quite a few steps and chilling time, but all quite straight forward to follow.

In the mochi dough, I used a mix of glutenous rice flour as well as regular rice flour.  The glutenous rice flour gives this treat the signature chewy texture while the regular rice flour yield the tender and soft texture for the mochi skin, even after freezing! Therefore, it's important to use both type of flours and not just one. With that said, you should always let your Ice Cream Mochi rest at the room temperature for a few minutes before serving.  That way, the mochi skin and the ice cream will have a chance to soften up before you bite into one.

In today’s Mochi Ice Cream, I filled them with an Easy Mango Ice Cream, which I will also show you how to make in my video, as well as Roasted Strawberry and Matcha Green Tea Ice Cream!  They are all homemade with natural and organic ingredients. Check out the recipe links at the end of the post if you're interested to make your own.  Otherwise, you can use any store bought ice cream as well.

Aren't they gorgeous?  I love how beautiful and colorful they turned out.  They make me feel happy just by looking at them, not to mention, they are refreshing and delightful to enjoy in the hot summer days!  Hope you’re enjoying summer in full blast!  If your kiddos are already back to school, these would definitely be their favorite after school snacks!  Thank you so much for stopping by today.  Remember, Eat, Drink, and Be Happy!  Stay tuned for more fun and delicious recipe next week!

Sumikko Gurashi Sushi Rice Balls 角落公仔壽司飯糰




Have you seen these cutie critters before?  They are called Sumikko Gurashi!  Aren’t they super adorable?  Today, I’m sharing a recipe with you that’s inspired by these super adorable characters from Japan: Sumikko Gurashi Sushi Rice Balls 角落公仔壽司飯糰.  If you’ve checked out my video tutorial above, you’ll also see the tools and ingredients that I used to make them.

Sumikko Gurashi Sushi Rice Balls 可愛壽司飯糰   http://uTry.it

It all started not long ago with a super soft and squishy plush toys that I got for my daughter from a Japanese store.  Ever since that day, we all fell in love with these cute little creatures!

What does Sumikko Gurashi means?  “Sumikko” means corner, and “Gurashi” means life.  Together, they can be translated to 'living in a corner,' as that’s what these little critters like to do.

Sumikko Gurashi Sushi Rice Balls 可愛壽司飯糰   http://uTry.it

From time to time when I see cute little Sumikko Gurashi products, I couldn’t resist but to take them home with me!

In today’s recipe, I’m making these sushi rice balls stuffed with a creamy and smoked salmon filling.  The rice itself is seasoned with different ingredients for their natural colors and flavors.

Sumikko Gurashi Sushi Rice Balls 可愛壽司飯糰   http://uTry.it

First off, we have Neko Cat.  The rice is seasoned with cod powder for the umami flavor and gorgeous pink color.  It compliment the salmon fillings really well.

Sumikko Gurashi Sushi Rice Balls 可愛壽司飯糰   http://uTry.it

Next is Polar Bear.  I leave the rice plain on this one for the white color.  Its ears are decorated with pink Soy Wrappers that are so much fun and easy to use!  It’s mouth and legs are stamped out cheddar cheese and it’s eyes and hands are stamped out seaweeds.

Sumikko Gurashi Sushi Rice Balls 可愛壽司飯糰   http://uTry.it

Up next is Penguin!  The green color is from matcha green tea powder.  You can also substitute with spinach puree or other dark green vegetable puree if you have those on hand.  But the earthy green tea flavor truly balanced well with the smoky salmon inside these rice balls.

Sumikko Gurashi Sushi Rice Balls 可愛壽司飯糰   http://uTry.it

Last but not least, Tonkatsu!  Remember I shared my homemade Tonkatsu recipe with you not long ago?  It’s Japanese style pork cutlets!  See the resemblance?   For this one, I seasoned the rice with a little bit of light soy sauce for flavor and color.  They all turned out super yummy!

How well did I I in in shaping and decorating these characters against the picture sample above?  Not bad, isn’t it?  I can’t wait to make “tail of fried shrimp”, “tapioca”, and “sparrow” next time!  They are all super duper cute!

I hope you enjoyed today’s video and recipe as much as we do.  My daughter and I had a fun time creating them together!  Thank you so much for reading and stay tuned for more fun and kawaii recipe next week!  Remember, Eat, Drink, and Be Happy!

Family Trip - Visiting Seattle and Vancouver

A Short Trip Visiting Seattle and Vancouver

Flight to Seattle

Today’s post is a little different than usual.  There won’t be any recipe as my family and I just returned from a short trip to Seattle and Vancouver.  The regular recipe and video tutorial post shall resume next week, I hope, after I tackled all the dirty laundries and house cleaning!   Yeah, that’s the down side after a vacation.  No wonder people get post-vacation-blues!

A Short Trip Visiting Seattle and Vancouver

We started our trip with our flight to Seattle.  I’m just glad that both of my my kids love reading.  Therefore, it’s quite easy to keep them entertained for the short flight.

A Short Trip Visiting Seattle and Vancouver
Uber Ride

Since we’re only staying in Seattle for couple of days, we didn’t rent a car but solely rely on the Uber service!  I definitely love how convenience and economical it is, especially within a small city like Seattle.

charcuterie board: country pork terrine, salami cotto, house pickles

There are so many dining options and wonderful restaurants in Seattle, but we had very little time to spend in Seattle!  I wish we had tried more restaurants, oh well, maybe next time.

A Short Trip Visiting Seattle and Vancouver
soft eggs*, smoked prosciutto, local greens, pecorino sardo

Our first dinner was at Serious Pie!  The Pizza crust here was simply amazing.  Crispy, crunchy, and light!  The pizza here was definitely one of the top three pizzas I’ve ever had!  So if you happened to be in town, try it out for yourself and let me know what you think.

Monorail to Space Needle

The next day, we took the monorail to visit the Space Needle.  The Space Needle is one of the must-visit tourist attraction in Seattle.

A Short Trip Visiting Seattle and Vancouver
Space Needle

It was quite a fun place to visit despite it’s be established for quite some time.  After you purchase your tickets, you’ll be assigned a time to return to the line for a quick elevator ride up to the top/observatory level of the Space Needle.   My kids had a great time up there, taking pictures and checking out the gorgeous view from above.

A Short Trip Visiting Seattle and Vancouver

These are the views from the top of the Space Needle.  Although Seattle is famous for their gloomy weather, we had quite a nice clear sky that morning!

Gum Wall

Next, we visited the Pike Place Market….but before that, we took the kids down the staircase for a quick look at the Gum Wall.  If you have a weak stomach, I recommend that you skip this place! 

A Short Trip Visiting Seattle and Vancouver

A Short Trip Visiting Seattle and Vancouver

I love this market, we took the kids to see the fish company.



There are many restaurants, cafes, and food stalls in this market and you can definitely spend a day here shopping and eating!  We also stopped by the very first Starbucks.  Unfortunately, the line was super long and we didn’t want to line up especially with young kids!

A Short Trip Visiting Seattle and Vancouver

That evening, we had dinner at Blueacre Seafood.  The seafood was fresh and services were wonderful at this place.  But make sure you make a reservation ahead of time, otherwise, you might not be seated for over an hour if you just walked in during dinner hours.

The next morning, we took a train ride from Seattle to Vancouver.  The train was a little bit old, but considered rather clean.

Here’s one of the scene from the train ride.  It takes about 4 hours to get to our destination.  We all managed to get a little nap on the train.

China Town, Vancouver

After we arrived in Vancouver, a family member picked us up.  I can’t believe Uber doesn't exist here!  Luckily, the public transportation is quite convenience.  Many places are within walking distance of the Sky Train.  We passed by China Town in Vancouver and had lunch at a local Hong Kong style Cafe.  Sorry that I didn’t take any pictures as we were too busy chatting and eating.  But the food was great there.

Seafood Tower

For dinner, we went to Yaletown, one of our favorite city in Vancouver.  We love this part of town because the whole area is packed with nice restaurants, hotels, and shops!  We tried the Seafood Tower from WildTale Coastal Grill and the kids ordered spaghetti.  Most of the seafood on the seafood tower were fresh and delicious.  Unfortunately, the grilled lobster was a bit overcooked.  Good news is that the desserts made up for it!

The next day, we visited the Waterfront.  You can observe Seaplanes take off and landing here.  The fares varies depending on the length of the flight that you choose.   Since it was a gloomy day, we skipped this attraction.

A Short Trip Visiting Seattle and Vancouver
Steam Clock

We walked over to Gastown to check out the steam clock.  You can read more here if you’re interested.

A Short Trip Visiting Seattle and Vancouver

After all these walking, we stopped by Fairmont Hotel Vancouver for an afternoon tea….and kids went into a pillow fight while we were waiting for our seating!  Thank goodness that we didn’t get kicked out of the hotel!  Phew….

A Short Trip Visiting Seattle and Vancouver

I had high expectation of this afternoon tea, especially given the price tag.  The tea was wonderful, ambiance was great.  Unfortunately, I was a little disappointed with the overall food quality.

A Short Trip Visiting Seattle and Vancouver

Picture above were cheese scones, blueberry scones, blueberry preserves, and devonshire cream.  The scones were delicious.

A Short Trip Visiting Seattle and Vancouver

Up next was maple panna cotta.  This was one of my favorite treat from the whole afternoon tea, besides the tea itself.

A Short Trip Visiting Seattle and Vancouver

On this plates were wagyu beef corn dogs, sliders for the kids, and duck confit tart. They were alright, but nothing special.

A Short Trip Visiting Seattle and Vancouver

The next level down the plate tower were lobster rolls and smoked salmon tea sandwiches.  I didn’t get to try the tea sandwich, but the lobster roll was just so-so.  The bread to filling ratio wasn’t quite right and the bread was a bit dry for me.  I would appreciate more if they serve half of the size of bread with the same amount of filling…and it would be better if the bread was buttered and toasted!  Am I asking for too much?  I think I need to make my own lobster rolls soon!

A Short Trip Visiting Seattle and Vancouver

The bottom plate were smoked meat sandwiches and bacon slider.  I’m already stuffed by the time I got to this level.

A Short Trip Visiting Seattle and Vancouver

Lastly, the dessert plate.  Unfortunately, the only item that I liked from this plate was the pecan tart.  The rest were just okay.  I have to mention though, the kids love the doughnuts especially when they can squeeze their own sauce on top!  That night, we had dinner with family.  Sorry we didn’t take pictures of the dishes.  But they were definitely more delicious than the afternoon tea. 

A Short Trip Visiting Seattle and Vancouver

The next day, we visited the Capilano Suspension Bridge.  Honestly, I’m not really a nature person nor do I like hiking at all.  But we all had so much fun here.  One recommendation is….wear comfortable shoes!!! 

A Short Trip Visiting Seattle and Vancouver

The suspension bridge was quite long and a bit swingy when you get to the middle.  But the scenic views around and on the bridge simple takes my breath away.

A Short Trip Visiting Seattle and Vancouver

This picture above was taken from the Cliff Walk looking back at the suspension bridge.

And here’s the view when you’re on the cliff walk.

A Short Trip Visiting Seattle and Vancouver

Throughout the park, there were a few other smaller suspension bridges when you walk up the treetops.  Can you spot us from the picture above?

A Short Trip Visiting Seattle and Vancouver

The next day, we took a ferry ride (20 minutes) to Granville Island Public Market.  It was a cute little town to visit if you have a few hours to spend.

Since this is a very short trip, we didn’t get to visit Victoria Island, another tourist destination.  Most people recommended to stay overnight at the Victoria Island as it’ll be too rush for a day trip.  Another popular attraction that we didn't get to visit is the Grouse Mountain.  I guess we’ll just have to save it until we visit Vancouver again next time.

A Short Trip Visiting Seattle and Vancouver

We had a safe flight back home from Vancouver!  Nothing beat Home Sweet Home!  Thank you so much for visiting and reading.  Stay tuned for more fun recipe, where to eat and visit in the future blog posts!  Until next time….

P.S. If you have any questions regarding transportation, restaurants, how to get around, where to go and what to do in Seattle and Vancouver, etc, please feel free to leave your questions and commend below.  I'll try my best to answer them.

Pink Grapefruit Frosé 玫瑰香檳柚子冰冰



How’s your summer so far?  Are you enjoying the summer heat or are you hating it?  For my family, we’ve been visiting the pool, water park, and going to cool places (a.k.a. air-conditioned places) to stay cool.  Please share with me your favorites things to do to stay cool if you have any suggestion!

How to Make Pink Grapefruit Frosé 玫瑰香檳柚子冰冰 - a refreshing summer treat made with Pink Grapefruit and frozen Rosé Champagne    http://uTry.it

However, I still turn on my oven from time to time to bake this once or twice a week.  That’s a necessity!  But other than that, I’m trying to keep the house cool and make as many No-Bake treats as possible.  This Pink Grapefruit Frosé 玫瑰香檳柚子冰冰 is one of my favorite summer treat!  It’s super easy to put together and very refreshing.  You might wonder what is a Frosé?  Well, it’s pretty much Frozen RoséYes, a word that I just made up!?  But hey, this frozen treat is so good that I think Frosé should be included in the dictionary!

How to Make Pink Grapefruit Frosé 玫瑰香檳柚子冰冰 - a refreshing summer treat made with Pink Grapefruit and frozen Rosé Champagne    http://uTry.it

This slightly sweet and tangy frozen treat will cool you off instantly!  The pink grapefruit juice is super fresh and it compliments the floral Rosé Champagne perfectly.  You can even substitute the Rosé Champagne with sparking white grape juice (skip the simple syrup because the grape juice is sweet enough) to make a kids’ friendly version.  But for the grown up, this is a perfect treat after any summer meal!

How to Make Pink Grapefruit Frosé 玫瑰香檳柚子冰冰 - a refreshing summer treat made with Pink Grapefruit and frozen Rosé Champagne    http://uTry.it

If you’re hosting summer parties, this will be the perfect dessert to make because you can, and should, make it ahead of time; leaving you more time to plan for the rest of your menu.  You can even explore and try other citrus juice with this dessert.  But I personally love the flavor and color of the pink grapefruit, so pretty and elegant!

DIY Homemade Lavender and Rose Bath Bombs



My whole family love bath bombs!  They are a wonderful way to relax in the tub after a long day of work, school, cooking, or running around the house (that’s more of my activity, not my kids…in case you wonder!) If you haven’t tried them yet, I highly recommend that you give them a try. 


DIY Homemade Lavender and Rose Bath Bombs     http://uTry.it

The first time we tried them was during our family vacation.   We simply purchased a bag from the drug store while we were supposed to pick up a few bottled water for our hotel stay.  Boy oh boy, we were addicted to them right the way!    It’s smells wonderful, fun to use with the fizzing and make bath time so much more relaxing and enjoyable!  The only down side of the store bought bath bombs?  They could be quite expensive!

DIY Homemade Lavender and Rose Bath Bombs     http://uTry.it

That’s one of the main reason why I’m making my own now!  Besides saving money, I can also tailor these bath bombs to my own preferences of scents and ingredients!

DIY Homemade Lavender and Rose Bath Bombs     http://uTry.it

There are a few must-have ingredients and I’ll explained to you why.  First item on the list is baking soda. 

Baking Soda:

In addition to complementing the citrus acid, baking soda is also the key to create the fizzing reaction.  Kids went crazy (crazily happy and excited, I should add) when the fizzing started!   Which introduced to the second ingredient, citric acid.
(Get yours here: https://goo.gl/U4cAyF)


Citrus Acid:

Another requirement to generate the fizzing reaction is the citrus acid.  I usually get it online and I’ll list the link below for your convenience.  It’s so much fun to watch and feel the fizz in the tub!  I feel like I’m bathing in a tub of champagne!  The Citrus Acid also acts as a natural preservative.
(Get yours here: https://goo.gl/8wbV1a)

Another ingredient for the recipe is corn starch. 


Corn Starch:

It yields a silky and smooth texture that you don’t get from other ingredients.  It also helps absorb the extra liquid in the bath bombs.  You can substitute with arrow root powder as well.  I usually have both in the kitchen as thicken agents in my cooking.
(Get your Corn Starch here: https://goo.gl/oXvfCo
(Get your Arrow Root Starch here: https://goo.gl/V7U379)


Epsom salt:

You can also use sea salt, or a mix of both as well.  It provides the minerals for your skin and help you relax and de-stressed!

Essential Oil and Coconut Oil:

Essential oil and coconut oil are also needed in this bath bomb recipe.  They help hydrate your skin and keep your skin feeling silky smooth and soft!  You can also use avocado oil or almond oil if you like them better.

DIY Homemade Lavender and Rose Bath Bombs     http://uTry.it


Witch Hazel Toner:

Last but not least, the witch hazel toner (you can use other alcohol-free toner as well).  If you don’t have it, water work just fine.  You do need the moisture in the mixture so that the bath bomb can come together for shaping.  The toner is also good for your skin and since I already have it available, it is what I used.

Dried Lavender and Dried Rose Petals:


Besides looking gorgeous and adding a bit of natural colors to the bath bombs, they also add wonderful natural floral aromas into the bath bombs.
(Get your dried lavender here: https://goo.gl/nF3Koc)(Get your dried Rose tea buds here: https://goo.gl/qMpZrf)


Soap Coloring:

The soap coloring is pretty much optional.  I think they make the bath bomb look more fancy and perfect if you’re giving them as homemade gifts.  But please only use soap coloring and not food coloring.  You don’t want the bath bombs to stain your skin nor the bath tubs!
(Get yours here: https://goo.gl/uCL6Vo)

That’s pretty much it!  I hope you’ll give this recipe a try and make some of these gorgeous bath bombs at home soon!  I’m sure you’ll love them! Please watch the video tutorial on the step by step instructions.  They are so much fun and so easy to make as well!
