Matcha Loaf + #Sponsor Product Review



Back when I was looking for a cookie to send for The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap 2013, I ended up making Matcha-Black Sesame Shortbreads...after a little inspirational gift - the matcha - from a friend whose family owns a sushi deli. I made my way through the canister, loving the delicate color and subtle flavor. I made a note to myself: Get more matcha soon.

I've been through about multiple different canisters now.

Earlier this year I received an email regarding an opportunity to review some organic matcha from Kiss Me Organics. I jumped at the opportunity. I especially liked that the matcha came with recipe ideas.

I followed several of the recipes and enjoyed each one. I'm sharing a recipe of my own...

This loaf makes for a quick and portable breakfast. I served these with some yogurt and fruit before we headed off for one of our adventures during Spring Break. Fast and tasty!

Ingredients

  • 4  eggs
  • 1/2 C olive oil
  • 1 C organic heavy cream
  • 1 C organic 2% milk
  • 1/2 C organic granulated sugar
  • 1 T baking powder
  • 2 T Kiss Me Organics matcha powder
  • 1 box of rice flour (mochiko is a sweet rice flour)

Procedure
Preheat oven to 375˚F. Mix the eggs and oil. Then mix in everything else until just moistened. Spoon the batter into greased loaf pan. Bake for about 45 minutes at 375˚F till the top of the loaf is slightly browned and slightly cracked. Let cool for 5 minutes before turning the loaf onto a cooling rack and cutting into thick slices.


Thoughts on Kiss Me Organics Matcha...
Note that this product is listed as 'Culinary Grade' Matcha, differing from 'Ceremonial Matcha.' This there is a difference in grade, which - from what I can tell - is mostly aesthetic. Ceremonial Matcha has a brighter green hue. But both should be silky smooth when you rub the powder between your fingers. Kiss Me Organics is.

The aroma is a fresh, mild scent that is reminiscent of freshly cut grass. And the taste is subtle and wonderful. Some matcha I've had is bitter. Kiss Me Organics is lovely. I will definitely be ordering more of this product when I run which should be soon!

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
