SHF Zebra-striped Chocolate Swirl Smores

Friday, January 19th, 2007

It’s Sugar High Friday #27 with David Lebovitz as round up host. With the SHF theme of “Chocolate Brand” this recipe uses Ah!laska brand Baker’s Cocoa in the marshmallows, and Ghirardelli White Chocolate. Amidst our delayed arrival from New Orleans I realized, I’ve been chocolate deprived. Distracted by oysters and cocktails, and having dessert for [...]

Chocolate Marshmallows

Monday, January 8th, 2007

Discussions on eGullet, where I gathered the strawberry marshmallow recipe from, have suggested that the fat content in chocolate marshmallows causes a decrease in their resulting whipped volume. My recent experimentation with black sesame paste marshmallows gave me the idea to add the chocolate at the end of mixing to minimize disruption of the marshmallow’s [...]

Gift From the Kitchen: Marshmallow Tasting Kit

Sunday, December 24th, 2006

I allowed my marshmallow obsession to run with my imagination after the success of the peppermint swirls. Using my Japan souvenirs, I whipped up a batch of homemade black sesame swirl marshmallows and a layered set of green tea with azuki bean. Combined with the peppermints and the lemon-ginger, I have assembled a tasting kit [...]

Stirring Peppermint Marshmallows

Monday, December 18th, 2006

I whipped up a half batch of peppermint marshmallows to add to a marshmallow tasting kit I am devising. Adding three drops of peppermint essential oil to the basic marshmallow recipe proved to be on the intense side of the flavor spectrum. Almost a bit tingly, but still delightful. To visually distinguish these mallows, I [...]

Tissue Samples and Eyeballs

Thursday, November 2nd, 2006

Squishy creepy Tissue Samples and firm little Eyeballs were a hit at our work Halloween Party. The beet marshmallows got sprinkled with an extra bit of straight beet powder, which lent itself to look like blood clots quite splendidly. Putting them in a glass jar and relabeling them to be Liver Biopsy Samples was a [...]

Beet Marshmallows

Monday, October 23rd, 2006

I finally did it- I made beet flavored marshmallows, and boy are they pretty! My plans to attend a fun food centered party up in Vancouver Washington this weekend really called for a fun potluck item. Knowing that several people attending had an objection to eating beets- this seemed like the perfect time to finally [...]

How to Make Sweet Sushi

Sunday, April 9th, 2006

My desire to make fake sushi has been rolling around my head for quite sometime. My first output was to make it with clay- a project that was fun, but got consumed up when it came to rice making… which is a hint as to how my compulsions play out! This project isn’t very easy [...]

Sweet Candy Sushi

Saturday, April 1st, 2006

How to guide now up. The combination of sweet tidbits and fake food has long held my fascination, especially when it comes to sushi. The masterminds at Kooki-Sushi have my everlasting respect with the production of their amazing morsals that trick the eye. I’ve always wanted to try my hand at my own fakery, and [...]
