I've been baking my brioche in Freshware moulds for seven years. They brown all over in these flexible, non-stick, easily-washed pans. My link is for the pan that creates 12 small brioches, but the company offers a six-hole pan for making medium-sized brioche buns--they give a choice of small, medium & large. Here is my method for home-made brioche: M-J's Brioche Recipe

Made in the U.S.A., these gorgeous, sturdy double-walled, insulated tumblers keep things cold and ice-cubes intact for hours. The lids fit securely, open-and-close aperture keeps a *straw in-place. You can easily attach a handle, like I sometimes do. Here is the sturdy pink handle I use:
People are absolutely wild about Tervis, and I hear they have a store in Vegas on the Boulevard.
Tervis cups or tumblers are guaranteed for life. They don't get scratched like other double-walled glasses, and if you drop them on the floor, the layers and rims don't crack. Drinking from Tervis is a smooth, elegant experience, one that will guarantee you get your daily dose of H20.

Gyoza skins were filled with health-promoting ingredients: purple cabbage, cooked adzuki beans, celery, carrot, red onion, cooked brown rice, chopped umeboshi plums and miso; I sealed them with an egg-wash and then, using my T-Fal Easy-Pro Deep Fryer, the gyoza dumplings were deep-fried in peanut oil and drained on paper towels. I served half of these and froze the rest (it’s the only way to keep them; storing these deep-fried pockets of finely minced vegetables, legumes and rice in the fridge will make them too soft). The frozen “gyozas” will be spread in a single layer and reheated in a hot oven. @M-J de Mesterton 2017
M-J's Deep-Fried Tofu on a Bed of Lettuce
My gyoza fillings, which vary week-to-week according to what I have in the refrigerator and pantry, always include some fresh vegetables. This week’s mixture, pictured below, contains fresh carrots, raw celery, red onion, fresh ginger, dried parsley, mung beans boiled in green tea, cooked brown rice and a little miso. It’s a great way to disguise health-promoting ingredients that men and children usually won’t consume, even in one’s most cleverly-concocted smoothies. My sauce for the gyoza dish is composed of orange juice, soy sauce and a little home-made red chile oil. A bowl of filling like this one is enough for a whole packet of 47 gyoza skins, and after they are cooked, these dumplings can be frozen and easily re-heated. ©M-J de Mesterton, January 19th, 2017
