1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Sushi Making Tips on: December 23, 2005 05:05:38 PM
Thank you all so much for the tips especially about keeping water handy - I never imagined the rice would be that sticky.

Anyways, I ended up making it for him today and gave it to him about an hour later. haha I decided not to bother with fish though so it was just california rolls. I was kind of intimidated because I know he works at a fancy restaurant with a sushi bar and all but he seemed to like it. Smiley So thank you for the help. And EmilyFlew, making sushi definitely IS addictive. Cheesy

ahah I remember trying to make that once and I got stuck around step 9. Embarrassed However, you've motivated me to try it again and what with the winter break coming up, I'm sure I'll manage to perfect it. Any tips? Smiley

Oh and by the way, how large was the paper you used? Your rose looks fairly large.
4  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Sushi Making Tips on: December 17, 2005 07:22:38 PM
My friend jokingly mentioned that he wanted me to make sushi for him for Christmas (which also happens to be his birthday). So I thought, it would be cool to surprise him with some sushi. So far, I'm planning to use the recipe from here: http://maki.typepad.com/justhungry/2003/12/handrolled_sush.html

I'm most likely going to roll the sushi into a cone shape. I'm juss wondering if it just stays in that shape after rolling or if I have to do something to make it stay like that.

How long does sushi last? I'm thinking that I might make it and give it to my friend the next day. Would it still taste okay?

Any other helpful hints? Things I should look out for? Any suggestions as to what fillings to combine together?  I'd appreciate any suggestions as this will be my first time making sushi.

Thanks for the suggestions kuri and dayzi. Smiley

I was planning on getting him some markers or pencils to go with the sketchbooks. However, another friend of mine said she might be getting him some of those. I'll have to check with her first.
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: Gifts for High School friends, Ideas and questions. on: December 11, 2005 11:13:25 AM
I'm mostly giving the girls jewelry. And I'm talking about 10 girls. haha However, just a pair of earrings doesn't seem like that much so I'm going to be making them all chocolate truffles to go with it. In addition to that, I'm gonna try to package my jewelry in a fun way because well honestly, opening the present is the best part. Smiley Most of the jewelry I've made is going to be packaged in felt fortune cookies like the ones here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=66970.0

Oh, StookeyDough, do you have a good recipe for fudge? I know someone who likes fudge and it would be nice if I could make him some.

This is such a great idea! I was wondering how I should package the earrings I made for people and voila I see your post. Smiley hehe Thank you so much!

By the way, your gift basket looks GORGEOUS! I'd love to get one like it. What did you put in it? I can't quite make everything out.

I don't really have any suggestions for you for packaging it though. I think the cellophane would look fine if you used something nice to tie it up. Maybe use a small piece of asian print fabric to tie it up?
