Hmmmm, we are planning for an outing tomorrow i am task to make kimbop also know as sushi rolls, also known as rice rolls, as i re-research the food preparation procedures i caught myself mouthwatering hahaha, and then, i can smell the nori sheets the seaweeds and all the ingredients, hmm now i really crave to eat kimbop, hmmm, and then i went outside to see if i could find some similar dish here in my town, and i found non, I am looking for a local sweetened sticky rice we called (biko), well its far from kimbops taste but i imagine the sticky rice, I called my boyfriend to buy me one but then he is working on something and not able to buy me, I forgive him, hmmm... when i crave i am sure and always end up cooking and then eating what i crave for, I usually cook what i crave,and after that, i only eat a little of it and if i am not able to get whatever i want to eat for the day, tomorrow can never be the same i might be looking for something else tomorrow.... how about you? How do you respond to your cravings? do you just buy? or try to cook it whenever how hard to cook it.

When i crave for a food, i would rather buy it than cook it. Cooking would entail a lot of time and effort and i know i wouldn't get the same good result as when it's bought. Besides, when i crave for a food, i want it to be satisfied at the soonest.

We share same feelings hehe, because there is a difference when it you who cooked it rather than buying it, You only did not satisfy your stomach you even learn how to preapare the food.

You can use the ordinary rice instead of the glutinous rice. Japanese rice is so expensive. All you have to do is to add more water and then when it's cooked you should put olive oil and mayonnaise. By the way while cooking the rice when it's half done and the water is almost gone, you need to add a little vinegar and salt. Kimbop is a little different from sushi rolls because it doesn't need wasabi at all and they're good to go once you've done rolling them on your nori or in Korea it's called gim/kim. I don't cook traditional filipino dish at all as i don't seem to know how but i'm good at preparing korean food.

I bought the traditional sticky rice, and put some filipino taste in it, and i over cooked the rice :P, I used tuna as my flavor, I also put vinegar and sugar and salt to have taste and its good just over cooked.:)..I put so many water that's why.

When I was on my first trimester of pregnancy, I really crave for fruits and some foods. When I do have the time to go out, I buy it, but when I got all the ingredients at home, I just prepared it. I cook whatever comes to mind since I do present it also in my food blog. I do enjoy to make sweets and desserts. I just hope someday I can also do baking stuffs once I get a new oven.

I love to eat but when I go eat and buy these things from the store. I love to go on a trip somewhere but I have time. I love being in the woods and eating what I want. I wish you a pleasant outing. nice day!

I go to the store and buy the stuff I like sometimes i buy and cook it at home. Lots of foods nowadays that has preservatives and i don't like it. That's why I prefer to cook it myself if I'm on the mood. When I've done it I will eat first and share it.lol I love cooking but sometimes buying saves time and energy.

You've got a point there, sometimes I experienced stopping what i ma doing because I am tired of figuring it out and I can't do it, ahha and just buy, ready to eat than stressing myself, like one time, me and my bf, went to a supermarket saw a leche flan menu, and we craved for it and then we started buying ingredients for that and then we count all our expense too expensive and non of us know how to prepare it, I can do it but I am not sure if it will taste good as we imagined, so no avoid failure we decided to drop by at goldilocks and enjoyed our cravings for the lecheflan..

Well, not always. Most of the time I buy what I'm craving for. I attempt to taste around and see who makes the best of my food craving.

Craving and Eating Together - Happy Eating
When I crave, I either buy or prepare at home whichever is my mood. But in most cases, it is always good to just prepare so that every member of the family can have a taste of the food. It is like an on the spot little party for the family. In my house when we crave for spaghetti, I am always ready to cook because I always have ingredients stored at home. It is nice to prepare your own because you can do it even healthier. Look down below and see how my hungry clan enjoys my spaghetti! He!he!he!
