WOW, did you make the mochi? I have always wanted to "make" mochi. I have searched for some mochi recipes, most of them are Hawaiian and they use Mochiko flour and jello for flavoring, but I have not been brave enough to make one. Is it easy to make? I really love and enjoy eating mochi!!!


I have also been frequenting this Japanese restaurant almost everyday, and I eat wakame salad everyday. Everytime I think of it, I think of your blog!! YUMMY!
