You will read my thoughts, my hopes and dreams, and see some of my favorite things. I hope you will visit often. I will try to update it regularly and hopefully you will see an improvement in the blog along the way. Thank you for stopping in to see me as I travel on this journey called "life"!

August 2012 - My first time

I had never heard of "mochi" before my foodie friend at work brought in a box of it that she had received as a gift.  She wanted to share and being the adventurous person that I am, I eagerly accepted.  Mochi is a small dessert cake made from glutinous rice that has been pounded into a paste and shaped into a cake form and then stuffed with some other ingredient.  The box she had was a variety box with a few different flavors.  I think this one was filled with red bean paste.  It had the texture of a marshmallow; but, not quite so sweet.  I liked it!

Have you ever had mochi?
