Butter Mochi

Butter Mochi was highly requested for Eric's Christmas pot luck (there are several people from Hawaii who work there) and I'm the lucky winner that has to make it for them!  I thought I'd blog my recipe because there were several people from a past party that told me they couldn't find a good recipe for it. 

If you're not sure what it Mochi is, they now offer it at those Yogert shops (ie; Yogertland and Red Mango); it's those white, soft, chewy, balls that they offer as a topping.  Just so you have a little background information on Mochi, Wikipedia's definition is:  Mochi (Japanese) is a Japanese rice cake made of glutinous rice pounded into paste and molded into shape. In Japan it is traditionally made in a ceremony called mochitsuki.[1] While also eaten year-round, mochi is a traditional food for the Japanese New Year and is commonly sold and eaten during that time. Mochi is also a prominent snack in HawaiiTaiwanCambodia, and Thailand.

Ingredients
1 -16 oz Box Mochiko (buy at asian food store)
2 1/2 cups Sugar
2 teaspoon Baking Powder
1 can Evaporated Milk
1 -14 oz can Coconut Milk
3 eggs
2 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
1 stick Butter, melted


 



Directions
  1. Pre heat oven to 375
  2. Grease a 9x13 pan or use cooking spray
  3. In a large bowl, sift together Mochiko, Sugar and Baking Powder, mix well
  4. In a medium bowl combine Evaporated Milk, Coconut Milk, Eggs and Vanilla, mix well
  5. Pour wet ingredients into the dry and mix together until incorporated (hand mixing with a whisk is perfect!)
  6. Stir in melted butter
  7. Pour into pan and tab bottom of pan on a hard surface to settle batter
  8. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until top is golden brown
    1. Once it reaches 50 minutes, I keep checking on it until the top browns; that's the best part of the dessert!
  9. Cool at least one hour before cutting

Unique, super yummy and such a great comfort food!!  Thanks Cali and Mom for the recipe, they varied very little, but both recipes are equally GREAT!  Merry Christmas to all!!

cheap and easy [temporary] privacy window covering

Who would have knew how many uses there were for GLAD Press'n Seal??  I've never actually purchased or used this before, but decided to copy a neighbor and use it as a temporary privacy window covering.  We ordered shutters and lucky for us, our order lands over two major holidays (Thanksgiving and Christmas) which gets our installation date in early January.  We've got windows EVERYWHERE in our new house and our next door neighbor can see into our living room window, as can the neighbors from the street...

Our shutter company, unfortunately, didn't give us those temporary accordion shades, but some plastic that purely acts as a privacy covering- it prevents people from seeing through however doesn't do much with regards to blocking the sun from shining in.  They only provided them for the bathrooms and master bedrooms [boo].  So much for the other 16 windows in the house...

In comes Press'n Seal!  It's sticky on one side and it easily sticks to the window…

our back yard project

We've always wanted to have a small house party, but felt overwhelmed with just 5 people in the living room.  In comes MY back yard project because I was tired of dust blowing into the house and staring at that ugly cinder block wall...not to mention that project that the previous owners started and never finished (see lower right hand corner of photo below).  Eric took ownership of wanting to decorate and 'spruce up' our living room, making it feel really homey and welcoming.  So MY project was the yard and my vision to make it less drab.  Our yard is teeny-tiny and fits right in with our 3 bedroom, 1200 sq. ft. house.  

Our friend had a landscaper do their back yard and he came highly recommended, so we went with them without question.  I wanted pavers, artificial grass and two trees/plants.  The landscaper recommended plants that crawl on the wall in effort to sooth my Issue with the cinder blocks...  I wasn't satisfied...  So I hunted and surfed the web for a week…
Guess what!?  I am about 2 weeks away from launching the Ultimate Instant Pot Beginner Handout!!  I am so excited to share this with you!!  It has taken me a little longer than I would have wanted, but there is so much love jam-packed into 10 pages with tons of helpful tidbits!! 

There are so many moving parts and pieces that need to be in place before it goes live on Etsy and I am working hard to make it all happen!  I have also decided to offer a printed version and a gift version so you can kick back and relax and I'll have it shipped directly to you and your loved ones!

Honestly this has been such a fun journey so far and I eagerly await to hear your feedback once you get your hands on one!
