Cashew Butter

テーマ:Recipe Thursday

At Yoyo Market, we have a delicious organic smooth cashew butter from Meridian at a great price. But we also know that sometimes it just feels really good to make your own. So here's a recipe from the Food Network so you can try to make your own at home.
Put the cashews, salt (and sugar) and 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a food processor (a blender will also do nicely). Set your machine to high, and let it go for 30 seconds. Scrape down the sides with a rubber spatula and process to desired smoothness, adding more oil, 1 teaspoon at a time, if a smoother butter is desired. Adjust the seasoning, to taste.

Transfer to a bowl to use as a dip, spread, or in other recipes, or place in an airtight container and refrigerate until it is ready to use.

Get Your Kids Into Biking

テーマ:Trendy Tuesday
Hey folks, and welcome to Trendy Tuesday.

Cycling is quite the important stepping stone for kids everywhere, not only here in Japan.

So why not give your young'uns a great head start, and introduce them to the Radio Flyer Pre Bike Glider? While in a bike-sitting stance, they can walk, they can run, and they can glide their way into getting used to cycling. It's the perfect balance bike for kids ... and I guess for parents who want to try something a little silly.

Snickerdoodles from Shortening

テーマ:Recipe Thursday

One of our newest non-Costco products here at Yoyo Market is shortening. While I'm sure most of us know the song "Shortnin' Bread", shortening itself can seem like a new and unknown ingredient. So here's a recipe for snickerdoodles to get you going (or you could just munch on an actual Snickers).

Snickerdoodles by All Recipes.com

Recipe for 3 dozen snickerdoodles



  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Grease cookie sheets.
  3. In a medium bowl, cream together the shortening and sugar. Add eggs one at a time, mixing after each.
  4. Sift together the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt; stir into the creamed mixture until well blended.
  5. In a small shallow bowl, stir together the 2 tablespoons of sugar with the cinnamon.
  6. Roll the dough into walnut sized balls and roll the balls in the sugar mixture.
  7. Place cookies 2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheet.
  8. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Cookies should be slightly golden at the edges.

Plums in Japan? You Bet!

テーマ:Healthy Wednesday
One of the newer fruits that we have added to Yoyo Market recently is actually a domestic item. Grown in Nagano, the heart of Japan's fruit country these plums are to die for. If you're not a fruit fan, they also go great as a jam, or even as an exquisite plum wine.


But as today is Healthy Wednesday, I don't just want to go on about the way they taste. According to Care2.com, some of the health benefits of plums include giving relief for constipation and digestive issues, protecting the heart, protecting against cell damage and cancer, preventing diabetes, improving bone health, and improving your brain memory. Not to mention being low in Calories of course. So what are you waiting for munch a plum today!
