Leek Onigiri from Fruits Basket

Is there a food you particularly hate? Something you really can’t abide eating? For me it’s eggs and bananas, but when I cook for myself, it’s no big deal because I can easily avoid those foods. When it comes to making food, though, you always want people to eat and enjoy the fruits of your…

Chukadon from Cinderella Nine

Cinderella Nine tells the age-old story of a girl whose mission it is to bring something new to her school. In a way, it reminds me of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, because Tsubasa, the main character, simply won’t take no for an answer and charms and coerces her fellow classmates to join her baseball…

Keppi the Kappa Cupcakes from Sarazanmai

Sarazanmai is a show full of surprises. I mean, just looking at the concept art in the thumbnail, you’d think Keppi the Kappa would just be a cute little guy, full of fun and surprises, RIGHT? WRONG, so wrong, so so so wrong wrong wrong. I made these cute cupcakes BEFORE I saw episode one,…

Fruits Basket Mochi from Fruits Basket

Fruits Basket recently started airing! As I was watching, I thought the little zodiac figurines would make for great daifuku, so that’s what I decided to do this week. Daifuku, if ya didn’t know, are little balls of mochi normally filled with fruit, red bean paste, or some other kind of filling. I’ve made daifuku before,…

Dimple Jello Dessert from Mob Psycho 100

Dimple from Mob Psycho 100 claims he doesn’t taste very good, but I beg to differ. Following up on my gluten-free Mob-themed curry from a few weeks ago, I wanted to hit hard with a Dimple dessert. The best thing I could think to represent his gelatinous, goopy form of spiritual energy was Jello. As unimpressive…

Rimuru Mizu Mochi from Slime

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime just ended, and I am devastated. I mean, that might be a little over-exaggerated, but seriously, I was surprised by how much I liked it! Okay, wait. I feel I’ve been dishonest with you. *deep breath* I only started watching Slime maybe…three weeks ago. Four? I’m not…

Strawberry Shortcake from Kaguya-Sama: Love is War!

Read the original post here, or see below. Strawberry shortcake is one of my fantasy foods. By that, I mean that I have it in my head what a perfect strawberry shortcake should LOOK like. I have it in my head what a perfect strawberry shortcake should TASTE like. The problem is that I can…

Gluten-Free Japanese Curry inspired by Mob Psycho

Read the original post here, or see below! The funny thing about cooking A LOT is that I often find that out-of-the-ordinary food preferences—like veganism, vegetarianism, and gluten intolerance—become a lot less formidable. Once you really know your way around the cooking process and you can understand the basic components of a recipe—why certain things…

Raphtalia’s Cinnamon Rolls inspired by “Shield Hero”

See below, or read the original post here. No one asked for this, but that’s okay. I’m just here to tell you that Raphtalia from The Rising of the Shield Hero is SO CUTE, and her ears kinda remind me of cinnamon rolls. Therefore, I decided that we needed to make some cinnamon rolls to…
