Japanese Turkey Rice Balls (Onigiri)

Holidays are made happier with cheery voices of children. Of course, channeling the (sometimes sugar-charged) energy of little ones can be a challenge. Here's a kid-friendly project which will yield yummy and healthy results.

Gluten-Free Grateful Thanksgiving Turkey Cupcakes

Gluten-Free Glutino Turkey Cupcakes are at the top of my Thanksgiving gratitude list.
1. The cupcakes are fun to make kid-friendly projects.
2.  The turkey cupcakes are festive.
3. Rich chocolate cake can be shared by all in cupcake form by all. (Nobody ever guesses they are gluten-free!)

You'll need Nutter Butters for your Thanksgiving turkey cupcake decorations. Here's a link to a recipe for gluten-free peanut butter sandwich cream cookies.

Kippy's Organic Non-Dairy Chocolate Ice Cream

Kippy's rich, deep chocolate ice cream seduces the senses like a mature wine. Despite the decadent flavor profile all the ingredients are healthy and good for you. Maybe we really can enjoy dessert first!

Kippy's Ice-Cream-Making Notes:

  • “Definitely use $10 (USD) a pint-honey not the $4 plastic kind.”
  • “It's important for the ingredients to marinate and marry each other.”

ABC Glutino Snack Pack

My ABC Glutino Snack Pack Bento is one smart way to approach snack time. Your child will give you an A+ for yumminess. (Shhh, don’t tell him/her the treats are actually healthy!)


Gluten-Free Strawberry Pop Tart Sandwich Bento

This Gluten-Free Strawberry Pop Tart Sandwich Bento is a twist on a childhood lunch. Cream cheese and jam sandwiches were introduced to me in Tokyo by my stepmother. Apparently it was a ‘50s classic.

Go with red apples for an all red theme. Go for green apples if you prefer a bit of tart to balance sweet pastry.

A scrumptious scoop of animal crackers stars in this gluten-free bento lunch. The bento is chock full of veggies, nuts and fruits that a bunny would love. But Bunny Love Bentos are not just for “wabbits.” (Remember the Trix cereal commercial?)

You’ll need:
A Japanese bento box 
Bunny rabbit cookie cutters

Japanese Moon Gazing Potatoes

East meets West. Sake wine puts an edge on sugar. American potatoes take on a Japanese twist. Japanese Moon Gazing Potatoes are perfect party appetizers. And spectacular served as a side dish when temperatures soar.

Ninja Note: Here’s a simple Japanese dashi soup stock recipe. Premade powdered dashi is also available at Asian markets and online.
