    Grated Pumpkin Cake

    Most Pumpkin Cake recipes require mashed (OR pureed) Pumpkin. I wanted an easier recipe. Then I decided to use my own ‘My Legendary Carrot Cake’ recipe, replacing Carrot with Pumpkin.

    Since I cooked ‘Scrumptious Dried Sardines & Walnuts’, I have known Walnuts and Soy Sauce are a good match. These Scrumptious Walnuts are great with cold Beer OR Green Tea.

    Scrumptious Dried Sardines & Walnuts

    These dried infant Sardines can be found at Japanese or Asian grocery stores as ‘Niboshi’ or ‘Iriko’. ‘Niboshi’ is a very popular ingredient for Japanese home cooking, but it’s so hard to find where I live.
