The Nutbox on Smith Street


 IMG_1564
I stopped by this shop a while ago on the way to visit a friend in Brooklyn. Despite its name “The Nutbox” it actually sells a lot more than just nuts.

They sell a wide variety of organic and non-organic  grains and beans, snacks, chocolate, and yes, of course nuts.
They also have snacks made with sweeteners like brown rice syrup instead of sugar as well. I was surprised to see some Japanese products like azuki beans and soybeans being sold there.

They have a coffee bar as well so you can enjoy a coffee while browsing through the store. I recommend the coconut-date snack and the cocoa covered almonds!

Samurai Mama- Kabocha Pudding

photo

I have always like the hojicha pudding at samurai mama but when I went last I got to try the kabocha pudding. It was great!

What looks like a scoop of ice cream on top is actually frozen cream. It has a really interesting texture.

For those of you who are not familiar with kabocha, it is a Japanese pumpkin.  Kabocha contains many vitamins and nutrients and tastes delicious as well. So if you’re in the area I strongly recommend you try samurai mama’s kabocha pudding!


Cold Springs New York- Thanksgiving Vacation

 

This Thanksgiving I went back to my hometown, New City, NY.  It was a really relaxing weekend filled with a lot of baking and cooking and of course, shopping!

On Monday we took a day trip to Cold Springs New York.

It was a really cute town filled with antique shops and cafes.

We ate a great restaurant called Le Bouchon.

The vegetable risotto with prawns and the mussels were my favorite!

This is the front of one of the antique shops.  It looked really cute but unfortunately it was closed on Mondays. Guess we’ll have to go back again!


New Hampshire Trip

Although it was quite a while ago I never got a chance to write about my trip to New Hampshire…

It was a beautiful time to go because the leaves were changing.  Sometimes it’s hard to see the changing seasons in New York City, so I was really excited.

 

The first night we had homemade sushi!

 

We also made amazake.

New Hope PA

A few weekends we visited New Hope Pennsylvania.  We actually got here by accident…or I should say due to my bad sense of direction.

But it was a really cute town with a bunch of antique and craft shops.  We could also see the beautiful fall leaves changing along the Delaware river.

I made a bento for lunch as well.

I made walnut amazake cookies.

Sweet potato salad and rice croquette
