A Love Note to Japan Vegan Cupcakes
Matcha green tea just speaks of Japan- beautiful, green, and robustly flavored, there are rituals around preparing and drinking this tea. They certainly don’t involve cute little cupcakes topped with white chocolate sudachi-kissed ganache, but hey, it’s so delicious and adorable, the Japanese are bound to love it! Oh, and what is this sudachi, you ask. It is a citrus fruit from Japan- something akin to a lime- but like no lime you’ve ever tasted. It is haunting with hints of white pepper.This cupcake, like Japan, is unique, gentle, yet very strong.

Rosemary Olive Oil Chocolate Chunk Cake

This is the best cake I have ever made. You will want two. Made with Mcevoy Olive Oil and Callebut Chocolate as well as Rosemary from a friend’s garden. I got this recipe from Heidi Swanson’s 101 cookbooks & when I met her she told a funny story of showing up to a potluck and 5 different people showed up with this cake. That’s how awesome this is. I have made this over and over to rave reviews. Mine’s a little extra special with some modifications and because my fingers taste soooo sweet!

I’ll make Brigadeiros! Two box (15 each) of delicious Brazilian caramel candy to state live can be sweet too.
Made with sweetened condensed milk and chocolate, this chocolate pudding cousin and fudge spread brother has its own and unique identity. You gotta try!
By the way, do you know Brazil has the biggest Japanese community outside Japan?
For me that’s not only a way to help but a way to show appreciation to Japan and its population.

Mochi is a Japanese sweet that I grew up eating, ever since I was a young girl. Every time we went to the Japanese supermarket, each of my siblings and I would get to buy a piece of mochi from the nearby bakery as a treat afterwards. When I visited Japan a year ago, you can be sure that I ate as much mochi there as I could possibly manage. Mochi is wonderful. And mochi cake… even better! This gluten-free chocolate-chip banana mochi cake that I am making embodies everything I love about Japanese sweets – light, not too sweet, just right.

My granola recipe was developed after I fell in love with the addicting Hippie Crack granola at a bakery in Washington, D.C.. It was love at first bite and I have replicated and modified to what I consider perfection. The French Press Memos granola is made with organic ingredients- oats, almonds, pecans, dried fruit, Colorado honey, and extra virgin olive oil. It is not dry nor over-moist- just a perfect balance of crunch and chewyness. The only warning is that it is addictive. It is packed in 8 ounce bags and I encourage you to win more than one.

This pineapple cheesecake is a ~20 years old Japanese recipe I’ve been using! It has good balance of flavors (pineapple and cream cheese). Its texture is perfect with pound-cake like consistency yet moist. Two highest bidder will win a loaf each. Note that since it is a Japanese recipe, 1) it’s not as sweet as usual American cakes (but don’t worry, the pineapple and cheese flavor will satisfy you for sure), and 2) it’s slightly smaller (3 1/2 x 8 1/2 x 2 in). I like to have it as a breakfast or at tea time with a nice cup of black tea.

Hello Kitty Strawberry Polvoron & Matcha Green Tea Polvoron
Polvoron are crumbly, creamy cookies, (similar to shortbread) beloved by all Filipinos. Philippines, once a former colony of Spain, had adapted this shortbread and made them their own. They are not even baked! Flour is toasted to a golden brown and combined with powdered milk, sugar and butter.
I had an idea to add strawberries last spring from seeing the abundant strawberries while shopping at our local farmers’ market. The Matcha Green Tea Polvoron I had made plenty of times before but have yet to post in my blog. A little token of support towards Japan and her people.

Food for the Gods is basically dates and walnut bar which is a favorite holiday treat in the Philippines that can bring delight to anyone eating it. I want to bring delight to the people of Japan in my own little way, hence this is the best baked goody I could think of. Baked with a delightful blend of dates, walnuts, butter, molasses, and honey (plus pecans in my recipe) these bars are very delicious and addictive. I’m donating 3 boxes with 12 individually wrapped bars in each box. It will be shipped in a hard decorative round box that will ensure that the Food for the Gods will arrive in good condition.

Fire Crackers are crackers with a kick of spice, thanks to a jalepeno spread made by a small local company. These crackers also generated my “Optical Illusion Cracker” that had the face of a bear in the cracker. There is no guarantee that you’ll get an optical illusion in your batch of crackers, but you never know. And if you don’t get a face in a cracker, these are great for snacking.
(can be made more or less spicy as requested)

Matcha & Raspberry Flower Honey Madeleines
Matcha exemplifies the Japanese soul and me. A subtle touch of this pungent tea flavor goes a long way in a madeleine recipe from my favorite Japanese dessert cookbook. A Raspberry Flower Honey, made locally where I live, adds another layer of floral essence, balancing out the slight bitterness of matcha, without being overbearingly sweet. 15 madeleines in the package.

ALMOND SWEETS (DOLCETTI DI MANDORLE) – These are traditional Sicilian
sweets. Sicily is renowned for its citrus fruits, its pistachio nuts and
almonds. All these products make fantastic ingredients for sweets.
Whenever I go to Sicily, the little mountain top medieval town of Erice is
my favourite spot to enjoy almond based sweets. This is a very easy recipe
to make delicious almond cookies, just like the ones you would eat in
Erice.

MARZIPAN (MARTORANA) – Martorana are marzipan treats shaped like fruits that are sold (and made) everywhere in Sicily. The name “martorana” comes from the Martorana Monastery in Palermo whose nuns are believed to have invented the sweet. It is very easy and lots of fun to make… and kids love it as it is so colourful and creative. You can easily make it and let
them paint the different shapes. In Sicily the traditional shapes are
fruits, especially figs, watermelons, oranges, walnuts… Around Easter
time you also find Easter lambs made of marzipan. You can really make
anything: flowers, figures, shapes… or whatever you fancy.

As much as I love brownies, sometimes they’re just too dark — you want something brighter, lighter, with more variation in texture, sweet but complex, like the food blogging community itself. These blondies are also sweet and complex: buttery, nutty, chocolate-filled treats. I’ve baked them for others before in times of small crises, and I hope they help in a small way to bring relief to Japan.

I’m astounded every day when I see another fundraising idea, hear another incredible story from people in the affected areas, see the images and videos flooding the news; the events in Japan and the ways in which so many people have stepped forward to try and do their part has been overwhelming. How, I wondered, could I contribute something that was in this spirit? I was racking my brains when suddenly it hit me: why not pie it forward? My Mini Jar Pies are fantastic because they’re not only delicious but you also get a brilliant little jar to re-use, or, if you like, make another pie to pass on to somebody else (hence: pie it forward). The filling will be Spring-themed rather than the Christmas pies I posted on my blog, but if you make the winning bid on these please send me an email and let me know if there’s any particular filling you prefer!

Lemon Scones with Genmaicha Green Tea (Gluten-dairy-free optional)
The Japanese diet has taught so many of us how to help our immune system fight for itself, with gentle foods and anti-oxidant-punching green teas. So it seemed only fitting to incorporate one of my favorite healing beverages – Japanese Genmaicha green tea and lemon – into a warm and cozy scone for this cause. They are delightfully moist, lightly lemon-scented and perfection when paired with a glass of good green tea. You let me know your dietary restrictions and I’ll make them with or without gluten, dairy or a specific sweetener, and always with thanks and love for your support of this cause. (8 large scones in a batch)…
If they’re purchased in NYC I’ll personally drop them off at an office or in a public space the afternoon they’re baked, and double the batch!

Gluten-Free Orange Almond Teacakes… The first tea ritual I ever learned about was the japanese tea ceremony when I was in the 4th grade. We had a student teacher that year from Japan who also taught us calligraphy. While these tea cakes don’t belong in the traditional Japanese ceremony, they do make a lovely snack, and are great for a tea or coffee break. * These are gluten-free. If you’re dairy free let me know, I can substitute a different oil in place of the melted butter. This recipe makes 12-14 cakes. In order to preserve freshness, I will freeze these right after making. They should be thawed by the time they reach you.

My Three-Ginger Gingersnaps are being baked in honor of my own Grandma Ginger who spent 20 beautiful years living in Japan. Crunchy on the outside and perfectly chewy on the inside, these gingersnaps are made using fresh, ground and crystalized ginger. A favorite component to my Baked with Love gift boxes, I couldn’t imagine a more appropriate donation of love for Japan.

Jams:
Jam is something I always have in my pantry. It’s so very versatile. I particularly love to use it to dress up cookies. This set of four jams would be a perfect addition to your pantry. The flavors include: Strawberry Balsamic, Lemon Curd, Mango Cinnamon, and Blueberry Lime. These jams have been canned and will last up to a year, but I expect they will be long gone before then. Except for the Lemon Curd, they are egg and dairy free. (Four sets available.)

Banana Bread:
The first time I made this Whole Wheat Vegan Banana Bread I fell in love with it. I now feel the need to make it about once a week. Sometimes I even make two and store one in the freezer in case I’m having a banana bread emergency and just need to eat some…right now. This bread is moist and slightly dense, as any good banana bread should be, and completely free of eggs and dairy. (Two loaves available.)

Jam Thumbprints:
Whenever an overwhelming urge to bake cookies starts to come over me, I make Blackberry Jam Thumbprints. They are seriously delicious and everyone loves them. They are soft, crumbly cookies with a sweet jam center. The cookies are rolled in white sparkling sugar before baking to give them a little crunch. These bite-sized cookies are so good I could easily eat a dozen in one sitting, so I am going to ship you three dozen in a decorative tin.

S’mores:
Homemade marshmallows are a necessity in life; they are just so much better than store-bought. They’re soft and pillowy and just slightly chewy, plus they make the cutest S’mores! Homemade S’mores are the most requested sweet from all of my friends. I’ll be shipping a dozen of these in a decorative tin to ensure the marshmallows stay fresh.

Vegan Shortbreads:
If you love the crunch, crumble, and buttery goodness of shortbread cookies, but don’t eat dairy or eggs, these Vegan Shortbread Cookies are for you. They get their buttery taste and flaky crumble from butter flavored vegetable shortening, are completely egg and dairy free, and made with natural, raw sugar. They’re especially good with a little jam on top! You will receive 20 shortbreads in a decorative tin.

One batch of chocolate chili bites will yield about 48 pieces
These chocolate chili bites are made with virtually no flour. Even with only a handful of ingredients these little treats are rich and dense; the deep chocolate flavor truly shines. What sets these apart from others is the addition of ground chili pepper–just enough to brighten the chocolate experience without ringing smoke alarms. These bites may be little but they are big on flavor.

Momofuku Crack Pie. You do need this. Oh, yes. Do you need any other reason? I suggest that you keep this pie to yourself, but try to eat it over two days, straight from the pan. Caramel filling in a cookie crumble crust doesn’t even begin to describe this chewy lovely. This is the kind of dessert that inspires a morning of baking and impatient hours waiting for it to cool.

Blood Orange Marmalade Tart:
I learned how to make this gorgeous tart from Joyce Goldstein, who adapted it from a recipe called Crostata di Marmellata delle Suore Trappiste, served at the Vineria Cozzi in Bergamo Alta, Italy. The tart gets its interesting name because it is filled with orange marmalade made by the Trappist nuns. In this version, we use blood oranges for a stunning presentation and floral flavor, “like an orange mixed with a rose.” It tastes divine.

These gluten free, dairy free cookies have won recognition in local baking events where none of the competitors were either gluten free or dairy free. Most recently, I won the golden spatula using this recipe in a local cook-off where more than a dozen other families shared their best recipes for chocolate chip cookies.
Because these cookies are best served fresh from the oven, what I am actually offering for this bake sale is not the cookie, but the cookie dough itself.
Arriving cold-pack quick ship box, this mason jar will provide you with enough dough to make up to two dozen award winning chocolate chip cookies straight away. Cooking instructions will be included on the label.
These chocolate chip cookies are not just gluten free and dairy free, they are absolutely vegan, egg free, corn free and grain free to boot. Loaded with rich dark chocolate and big beautiful chunks of pecan, these cookies are kissed with the slightest hint of cinnamon and nutmeg.
Ingredients for this award winning cookie recipe include: blanched almond flour, organic coconut oil, organic agave nectar, organic vegan chocolate chips, organic pecans, natural sea salt, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
All ingredients are certified gluten free and kosher.

I’m a big fan of rustic Mexican chocolate, which is often infused with
spices such as cinnamon and chili peppers. It also tends to be much
more course than European chocolates due to the lack of conching. I
wanted to introduce some of this into these cookies, but since Mexican
chocolate can be hard to find, I added the spices to the dough
instead. The heat really punctuates the earthy chocolate and brown
sugar, making you pause for a moment while you figure out what’s
different about this cookie.

There are few desserts that I can think of that cause as much debate
as the proper texture for a chocolate chip cookie. Some like them
chewy, others like them crunchy while there’s another camp that
prefers a caky texture. I’ve always been on the fence, loving the
crisp caramelized snap of a good crunchy cookie while feeling equally
partial to the soft and chewy cookie more reminiscent of the dough
before it’s gone in the oven. If you’re a dunker like me, you probably
also appreciate the cakier cookies for their ability to soak up milk
like a sponge for a creamy mouthful of sweet heaven.

By using a balanced dough (between flour, sugar and butter), I can get
all these textures based on the amount of time they bake for, so let
me know whether you want them chewy, caky or crispy so I can make them
just how you like them!

When asked to bake something to raise money for Japan the first thing that came to mind was Chocolate Chip Cookies. When I lived in Japan I would fly back to the States twice a year to visit friends and family. I would always ask my Japanese family what they wanted me to bring back and they always said, “Homemade chocolate chip cookies.” Not having an oven in Japan, the only chance I had to make them was when I was back in the States. The last night before I was returning to Japan I would make up a big batch of chocolate chip cookies to take back with me. These are completely organic with the best ingredients. They ship well staying both crispy and chewy. I am including the basket as well as a little touch of Japan.

I sent an email bid in on a couple items. Truth be told I hope I am outbid on every single one! Because as much as I would love to sample a variety of items offered, I'd rather have them go for an outrageous amount of money…bid generously!

By the way, my blog's URL should be http://utry.it for the Triple Chocolate Almond Cookies! Thank you.

I'm a bit confused about how this works – I put in a bid but when do we find out if we won the item?
