Who doesn’t love Easter? It’s the perfect excuse to indulge. A four-day weekend just screams short vacations, lazy mornings and of course delicious food. Late brunches, scrumptious desserts, and dinners worth sharing with as many people as you can rally together. For most people, that includes more than your fair share of chocolate. It comes part and parcel with Easter, and let’s be honest… It wouldn’t be right unless you had at least one choccy egg.
Growing up, rice was my staple diet. I had it most days, and if I had my way, I would’ve had it for most meals. Slathered in ketchup and maybe a bit of sweet corn thrown in, it didn’t take a lot to make me happy at meal times.
Now I’m not so much of a ketchup lover, but rice still has a big place in my heart. So, I think it’s only natural that I developed an insane love for sushi. I tried it for the first time about a year ago, but it only took one bite for me to realize what I’d been missing all this time. But like so many things, I was sure homemade was the way to go, so I was determined to make my own. I researched it, and in theory, it didn’t look that hard. And I was pleasantly surprised at just how easy it was to make.
My sister and I are a sushi rolling dream team. And I have to say, our sushi is by far the best that I’ve ever tasted! After a while I started looking for new ways to make it. There’s so many different varieties of sushi out there, from nigiri, temaki and uramaki, that I had a lot of choice. So, I made a few different ones, and loved the change.
