Good News from The Ninja Baker

Holidays bring families together, gifts around the Christmas tree and sweet carols. Or candle lighting of the Menorah with loved ones. In Japan, Christmas is typically a commercial holiday; so, Christmas cake appears. (Bestsellers tend to have tons of strawberries, whipped cream and cute chocolates.)

Keeping with the good cheer of the season, I want to share some sweet news.

1. For you or the foodies in your life, click this link to a Cookies & Cups Cookbook Giveaway. Besides scrumptious cookies,  a treasure trove of healthy kid-friendly meal recipes and glossy photos are featured. I made the vegan vanilla cupcakes swirled Japanese matcha tea frosting on top.

2. The Ninja Baker’s Move Over Limoncello Japanese Yuzu Cheesecake was a runner-up in an international cooking contest sponsored by Voss and the Culinary Content Network. Here’s a link to the easy recipe.

3. As the holiday lights twinkle, my heart is all aglow because the Culinary Content Network chose me  for their Blogger Spotlight. If you’d like to see a short and sweet interview with yours truly, here’s the link.

Wishing you magic, miracles and much joy always.
