Sushi is not simply raw fish. In fact, sushi might not even have any seafood in it. Sushi refers more to the vinegar rice and whatever ingredients might top it. The next time you're craving Asian food, try California Sushi Rolls, Sushi Meshi, or Crab and Vegetable Roll-Ups as part of your next Asian meal.See Popular Sushi Recipes

Hello, folks. Today we are going to make California Sushi Rolls. DO NOT run away.
Roll your own low-fat sushi with a combination of fillings. Finish it off by dipping in a ginger-based sauce.
Nori is paper-thin sheets of dried seaweed, common in Japanese cuisine, particularly nori-maki rolls. Nori has a sweet ocean/briny taste, and is rich in protein, vitamins, and minerals.
It's hard to wax poetic about rice; it's far easier to gush about all the things we love to eat rice in, from those sticky little grains that hug our sushi tight to the golden basmati bed upon which rests our curried biryani, from the creamy comfort of Italian risotto to the pugnacious kick of a good jambalaya. It's the filler, the stalwart staple, the perpetual sidekick, like that character actor you've seen in dozens of movies who never takes the lead. More than once in our kitchen, long after the main course has been set simmering, one or the other of us will exclaim, "Oh, we forgot to put on the rice!"
"Red snapper," "wild-caught Alaskan salmon," "yellowfin tuna" -- isn't it nice that so many of the fish we love to eat also come with deliciously appetizing names? That's no coincidence, according to a recent report by the environmental advocacy group Oceana. The group conducted a two-year investigation of seafood sold across the United States, sending more than 1,200 samples to a special genetics lab for DNA testing.
The kitchen isn't probably the first place you'd think to cook up an April Fool's gag, which is why it's perfect: no one will suspect a thing. While April Fool's jokes have the potential to leave a decidedly bitter aftertaste (at least when it comes to their intended target), there's no reason you can't have a little fun on the sweet side. An "egg" sunny side up and a couple pieces of "toast" are actually melted marshmallow, frosting and sliced pound cake.

Little things, like cupcakes (click here for fun Halloween cupcake recipes) are so darn cute. So are kittens and babies. And the Fiat 500.
Cooking classes, bike tours and farm stays are something to chew on as you plan your next foodie vacation.
Kids' birthday parties can be as simple as a few friends at a sleepover, or as elaborate as a destination party with 20 classmates. But either way, the treats you serve have to be something special (after all, you only turn six...or seven...or ten once in your life, right?), and nothing says "special" like homemade.
All-you-can-eat buffets are nothing new in Vegas, no more than aging pop stars and showgirls. And while we can't confirm that they were responsible for the, um, portly silhouette of Elvis during the "Vegas years," we're pretty sure the new Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars Palace is destined to go down as one of the seven wonders of the (culinary) world. If an unlikely metropolis built in the middle of a desert can manage to replicate everything from the Big Apple to the canals of Venice, then surely it wasn't too long before someone tried to squeeze a good number of the world's major cuisines under one roof.
