  • What is Sweet Dango supposed to look like inside?

    I'm trying to figure out if I cooked it properly, as it is my first time, but I have no idea what the texture is supposed to be like. Right now they are like sticky and stretchy in the middle. They have like a thin harder shell outside. I steamed them then put them in the oven. Can anyone help?

  • How do you make edible sweet fish eggs?

    What I am talking about is candy/dessert-like caviar or salmon roe. I am not familiar with molecular gastronomy cooking so I don't know how to exactly make these things. They look like tapioca pearls really. Would I use tapioca powder? But what else do I use to help solidify it to make tiny balls? I want to try making flavored ones. Any help is appreciated!

  • Are there any kitchen food items that can help relieve acid reflux?

    I have had really bad acid reflux and used to take Prilosec but it backfired. Also used Ranitidine but that's failing to help as well. Not to mention I've taken Maalox 3 times so far today and it isn't helping one bit. Are there any kitchen food items that could help remedy this? I think I heard of baking soda being used for it but not sure. Any suggestions?? Please help. Can't get into a doctor any time soon so I could reeaaallllyyy use some insight as soon as possible.

  • Can someone tell me all flavors of Furikake?

    I don't really know Japanese, however, I know what Tomago, Roe, and Nori mean. Oh I also know that Furikake is Rice Seasoning. I am trying to find a pork or other meat flavor, but translators don't translate written words; just kanji. I am asking because I am trying to get into Bento. Please, any and all help is appreciated. :)

  • Has anyone ordered from

    I placed an order through that website, received confirmation of payment, and all that wonderful stuff. However, I have contacted them twice now and haven't received a reply. I ordered on the 7th of this month and when I checked on the site for the status of my order it STILL says "processing". Now, I live in the US and this place is in Japan. I am VERY familiar with customs, time allowance, etc etc etc.

    Has anyone else ever ordered from this site? Can you give me some insight on this? If I've been had, I wanna try to get my money back possibly. I really hope someone can help.

  • Where online can I find unique Japanese DIY food/candy kits?

    I know where to find popin' cookin' items and ebay is kind of a decent place to find some of what I'm searching for, but I LOVE Japanese DIY food/candy kits. A couple in particular for example - a deco chocolate kit (as seen in videos via YouTube by RRCherryPie) and this little (not the party size) individual pudding making kit. ANYTHING related to Japanese DIY food kits I will look at. But only sites that I can purchase from. Thank you very much in advance! :)

  • What medication is generally prescribed for racing thought at bedtime?

    My doctor prescribed something to me a couple years ago to take at bedtime and it stopped the racing thoughts but blah blah. Anyway, I'm trying to find out what it is so I can have him prescribe it again.

    Let me just add that I'm not looking for any suggestions like writing stuff or any of that sort. Just trying to find out the name of the medication. :)

    Any and all help is much appreciated!

  • What would I need to be able to sell baked goods over the internet?

    I have a passion for baking and making unique chocolates. I was wondering if someone can tell me how to go about doing this legally such as being recognized by the state/government as safe, etc. I don't plan to make this a really big thing, but just be able to sell to others over the internet by processing orders, etc. If anyone can please give me information on this I'd be very grateful. Sites are a big help as well.

    I live in NY state (not NYC), btw. Thanks in advance for all the help.

  • Anyone know where to get an IQ Test?

    I don't attend school at this time (Age 27) so I wouldn't have that sort of access. Does anyone know where I could have an IQ Test administered?

    Would a psychologist be capable of administering such a test?

    Any and all information would be of help. Thank you.

  • Anyone know a treatment for acne cysts/lesions?

    I have them and they are very painful plus they leave scars, or they just don't go away completely which leaves them to sprout again in the same place just as bad or worse.

    Plus, I have really oily yet sensitive skin.

    Does anyone know a treatment that will work for me? Whether it's herbal or even suggest a prescription?? I used to use Klaron Lotion (prescribed by a dermatologist), but my new insurance doesn't cover it and it's like over $200 or something.

    Help please!

  • Risking humiliation.. Breaking up through someone else due to medical reasons bad?

    See, I have a really huge anxiety issue/disorder and I'm considered too nice for my own good... I tried breaking up with my boyfriend recently, myself, and I about had a heart attack (literally) from the immense stress. He didn't help because he was begging then threatening, etc etc. Well, my mother (being that she's the person who's helped me with my illness my whole life - more than anxiety but anyway) opted to go tell my boyfriend herself to save a trip to the hospital (we're talking about myself now). It's one of those situations between my bf and I that we both love eachother but it just CAN'T work no matter what. Am I truly a bad person? I feel like I'm about to have an attack any moment because he doesn't deserve to hurt at all. I just don't want to be guilted into getting back with him. Call me crazy for posting this but I just.. I guess I wanted to know if I'm the only one that knows where I'm coming from or if I really am seen as some evil witch. *sigh* Yes, I'm probably stupid for posting this but my nerves are going so much I need some outlook from others.

    Thanks for your time.

    Hope everyone else has a good holiday.

  • How do I stop my cat from scratching at her ears and other areas of her face?

    She is a prior outdoor cat so I am suspecting ear mites. Do I have to go pay for a visit with the vet to properly treat for mites or does someone know where exactly to purchase a top notch remedy? She also is having flaking from her skin mostly around the facial/ear area. I really can't afford much, but if I must I will take her to a good vet. Only the best for my baby Saiya.

    Also, is it bad to use human shampoo on a cat/dog? I ask because since she's been itching I have used Head & Shoulders sensitive 2 in 1 Shampoo (only 2 times). I am pretty sure someone will say it's poisonous, which is why I've stopped doing it. It was an act of desparation and it was late (no local shops open to purchase anything proper), and I couldn't sleep because she was suffering so much.

    Hope someone can help! Thank you for your time.

    Oh yeah, if it helps, I have experience from long ago taking care of plenty of cats/dogs. Also, please don't leave rude messages. I'm just a worried care-taker of a wonderful, young cat.

  • Does anyone know how to get over the knee stockings to stay up?

    Oh.. can't use a garter belt because the costume (anime based) is NOT supposed to have one and I am trying to stick to the original design (entering a contest too so must be as much like the character as possible).

  • Will you be dressing up as an anime character for Halloween?

    If so, who do you plan to be? Do you have any links for pictures for the costume? Whether it be the anime picture itself or maybe the actual costume...

    I plan to be Seras Victoria from Hellsing (blue uniform). Complete with replica cosplay costume (blue) from, blood red contact lenses, fangs, and probably a little plastic prop gun.
