Ok, so one of my resolutions is to update this blog more regularly (EDIT: BOY DID I FAIL THIS), although my focus will be changing to more of a food blog than a book blog. I’ll probably still talk about random geek stuff occasionally (like conventions!), but want to try cooking more this year. Was feeling pretty blah about cooking and ate a lot of mediocre meals last year (chips and salsa is a meal, right?).
Anyway, starting the year off with a traditional Japanese food, ozoni.
Just a brief food post.
Apple cheddar scones. Recipe from smitten kitchen. I had some granny smith apples that needed using, and I don’t normally eat those kind of apples plain. Honeycrisp and Fuji are my eating apples.
Slightly overdone. Also, my cheddar wasn’t sharp enough, as I could barely taste the cheese baked into it. These are much improved when eaten with a slice of cheese on top of it. I may forego the sugar sprinkling on top, too, to get away from a sweet scone.
Random food post here! But it’s my blog, so I’ll do what I want!
Out of curiosity, I decided to make Serious Eats’ ramen pizza. I won’t post the recipe here, so if you’re interested, you can click the link and head over there.
I’ve always seen Neapolitan spaghetti in anime and manga. I just never knew what it was. When I found the recipe in Kitchen Princess volume 7 during this month’s Manga Moveable Feast, I decided I had to make it to see what it was like. (I just had to make sure not to burn it like Aoba does frequently in Cross Game.)
Mmm, crunchy spaghetti!
I’m ending my contributions to the Oishinbo/Foodie MMF with two recipes from Kitchen Princess! (I posted them both today because I am off to Fanime for the long weekend along with a self-imposed internet ban, and wasn’t sure how to format tweets correctly for posting in the future).
In the penultimate post, I attempt an easy sounding recipe for yogurt bread from volume 6, when Najika goes back to her childhood home, pre-foster care.
I didn’t think I’d ever be posting a food entry on this blog, but here we are! The Manga Moveable Feast (MMF) that Otaku Champloo is hosting this month is encouraging us to go out and try these wonderful foods that we are reading about. Oishinbo is convenient in that the volumes even come with one or two recipes. So I decided to do the two asparagus recipes from Oishinbo: Vegetables: Asparagus with Walnut Dressing and Asparagus Grilled Kabayaki-Style.
