Finding the chic in everyday life

I love eating, cooking, crafting, zumbaing, ice skating, and lots of other randomness.

First generation organic.

Since December 2008, I've lost 15 lbs and I hope to continue my healthy habits of nutritious eating + frequent, fun exercising.

If I had to guess (but I won't swear to it) perhaps the paste your sister used was miso paste? I have tried cooking several Japanese dishes because I love Japanese food. Miso paste is used in a lot of recipes as is Mirin, which is Japanese cooking wine. In any case, it all sounds yummy. I especially love the dishwear set she used. I like the shapes of the whole set!


Hi Diana,
Thanks for the fantastic advise, that is an amazing idea about the coupons, smart little girl you are!!
Love the wonton soup, did the one you made by Emeril turn out good? I love that soup, but only certain places make it the way I like, so I might just try E.L.s recipe. Also beautiful pics today. Hugs to you and little Mr Furry paws.


Looks so wonderfully delicious. How lovely.


you live like in a restaurant! :)I just look at your blog and feel full even without touching my dinner :)


Oh the food looks so very appetizing:-). And wonton soup on a day like today would hit the spot right on:-). I love trying all types of new foods. Hubs goes to Japan alot, and I must say that some of the food he has eaten over there, I just don't think I could handle. I would have to find some kind of way to Americanize it *giggles*.
Enjoy your evening!!
