Rice Cooker Love

As you can imagine, now that I’m working on a rice cooker cookbook, I have been making a lot of food in the rice cooker. I love how easy it is. With summer in full force, I don’t seem to have the usual cooking energy and five minutes of active prep works for me.

I’ve been having a harder time with cakes because I have a three cupper and cakes need a wider area like a five cupper. What a great excuse for a new rice cooker.

Here is what I’ve been working on.

An Ode to Snapdish

One of my favorite apps for the iPhone/iPad is Snapdish. I post a lot of meal photos there and get inspired. If you have a smart phone I highly recommend that you download and start using it. There are a lot of Japanese users so it is a great opportunity to see everyday home cooking as well as typical restaurant food. I’m Kirsten Adachi on snapdish if you would like┬áto add me.

Three of my pics from Snapdish.
