Bento by pradlee Bento by pradlee
Bento my roommate made for me a few months ago.

onigiri (rice balls) covered in shiso (dried leaf seasoning, also called beefsteak plant- turns stuff purple!)
omelet
carrot flowers
tomato
mexican wedding cakes/russian teacakes (cookies made from butter, powdered sugar, ground pecans)




from Betty Crocker's cookbook:
RUSSIAN TEACAKES (or Mexican wedding cakes)
makes about 4 dozen cookies

ingredients:
1 cup butter, softened
0.5 cups confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2.25 cups all-purpose flour
0.25 teaspoons salt
0.25 cups finely chopped nuts (I use pecans)

steps:
Heat oven to 400˚F. Mix thoroughly butter, sugar, and vanilla. Work in flour, salt, and nuts until dough holds together. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place on ungreased baking sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until set but not brown. While warm, roll in confectioners' sugar. Cool. Roll in sugar again.

beefsteak is the same as shiso, a common japanese herb. it looks a bit like basil, though i can't say the taste is wildly similar. i'm afraid that i can't really describe the taste. it is somewhat herby, like basil, but perhaps not so strong-tasting.

err, i actually don't know many sweets recipes (though i've made strawberry daifuku, as well as Western desserts), but if you want more japanese recipes, i'd suggest looking at cookingwithdog (a user on youtube).
