uploading these photos required much effort, but here they are!

i'm having trouble uploading photos again, but i am going to try my patience until it gets finished.

i made sushi the other day. and then i realized how much i hate these seaweed wraps. i always get a sick feeling after eating this type. oh well. the spring rolls were delicious though! i made a thai peanut sauce to go with it. it's just a basic recipe w. vinegar, pb, onion, garlic, cayenne pepper, chili powder, and lime juice. it was pretty good for just throwing the ingredients in the food processor and then heating them on the stove.

i made 'tarts' sometime in the past week, although i can't remember when. actually, i just wanted to see what phyllo dough would taste like with coconut milk. ummm...might i say tremendous!?

i had used phyllo dough sometime back in the winter to make these pizza roll like items. this time, i used muffin tins and placed the phyllo in them. i smothered them in coconut milk and baked them for like 30 minutes. then i used the food proccessor on some frozen bananas and strawberries. spooned that into the cooled holders and sprinkled with walnuts and shredded coconut. they were so good that i am not allowed to make them for a long time b/c i will eat all of them.

my dad even ate one [he never tries ANYTHING i make]. he said they were good. i was amazed.
i hope the weather is nice where you's been so cold here and it's driving me mad!
