Gluten-Free Pumpkin Cake Donuts, #SundaySupper

Budget-friendly recipes is the topic of today’s #SundaySupper. (You’re invited to join the chat around the virtual Twitter dinner table. Scroll down for detail.) After pouring over pages of potential budget-friendly goodies, I landed upon the site of King Arthur. Photos of their pumpkin cake donuts looked irresistible. Pumpkin cans are aplenty in the Ninja Baker’s kitchen. Have you noticed canned pumpkin goes on sale during the holiday season? Well, with their long shelf life, I stocked up...Originally I set out to replicate the King Arthur recipe. Something felt off. The still small voice was talking. 

Vegan Mini Chocolate Cream Cakes, #SundaySupper

Have you ever tripped and found yourself sprawled out on the sidewalk? I’m not speaking metaphorically. I woke up anxious about my massive to-do list. I  pushed the feelings aside. Women are masters of multi-tasking, right? Starbucks in hand, I was determined to check off the items. Life had other plans. Preoccupied with “priorities” while scanning Santa Monica storefronts, the jagged sidewalk escaped my attention. Splat!

Peanut Butter Ginger Apple Cookies, #SundaySupper

Autumn is a time when green leaves transform into magnificent hues. (Hopefully, we human beings also mature with the changing seasons!) In my pursuit of the true meaning of home during my summer and autumn in Boulder, the classic film, E.T. slipped into my mind. (Quotes from the film such as “E.T. phone home” and “I’ll be right here,” have choked me up a bit.) In honor of Elliot luring E.T. out of the forest with Reese’s Pieces...

 

No-Bake Raspberry and Japanese Yuzu Citrus Bars, #SundaySupper

Delicate raspberries and puckery yuzu citrus are a heavenly flavor combo so I’m contributing No-Bake Raspberry and Japanese Yuzu Citrus Bars for a Summer Chillin' themed Sunday Supper. Crushing Pocky (Japanese chocolate covered biscuit sticks) for the crust of my Summer Chillin’ dessert, I thought about all the “cool” festivals which occur in summertime Japan. Like the Tanabata Festival. The Japanese festival celebrates the one night where the Romeo and Juliet of the star system...

Café Zinfandel Cake & Pinot Noir Quinoa, #SundaySupper

Dad played a decorated war hero, General MacArthur on NHK TV. (The PBS of Japan.) In real life, medals never dangled on my father’s chest. Yet, he’s always been my hero. His gentle spirit and generosity continue to influence and inspire me.

Fond memories of Dad are popping up as I prepare for the #SundaySupper Father’s Day Feast. Dad loves fine wines and chocolates. Vivacious strawberry, raspberry and watermelon flavors color Gallo Family Vineyards’ Café Zinfandel... 

Slow Cooker Eggs with an Asian Accent, #SundaySupper

Happy Mother’s Day! I’m blessed with two. Both are inspirations. My birth mother is a two-time Wimbledon semifinalist (link). Despite the obstacles of limited finances, Mom’s mighty confidence and unwavering determination resulted in multiple tennis trophies and first place titles. My stepmother, Barbara’s artistic sensibilities continue to influence my appreciation of breathtaking compositions of poetry, flowers, food and furniture!

Formidable as my mothers may be, cooking and baking never ranked as a favorite pastime. As Barbara was a popular actress and voiceover talent in Tokyo...
