Crunchyroll #63: Curry Buns from “Restaurant to Another World”

Learn how to make it here! 

 

Honestly, for MONTHS now I’ve looked at Feast of Fiction’s Black Butler curry buns and silently stewed at home because they swooped my style. I won’t lie – I can be a bit of a petty person. I didn’t want to recreate the same recipe since they already did it, and I didn’t want to be a copy-cat, yadda yadda. So it goes. Looking back, I’m not sure why I was so dumb about it. Curry buns are AMAZING, and, thanks to Restaurant to Another World, I had my chance to make a personal comeback without having to make the recipe from Black Butler.

Crunchyroll #62: Mixed Fruit Crepes

Learn how to make it here! 

 

Crepes have been a tradition in my family for a long time. When I was little, my mom would make them every Sunday morning for my sister and me. Mom is amazing at making crepes, they always turn out golden and round, perfectly formed, with tiger stripe patterns across the surface. We would fill them with syrup, apple butter, sugar, and all manner of other delicious things. It was one of my favorite breakfasts of the week! Unfortunately, the skill for crepe making did not translate over to me. Every crepe I’ve ever made has been a miserable mess.

Well, well, well. Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to witness the creation of something so special, so obscure, it almost defies words. I mean…natto spaghetti. What do you say about such a thing? Let’s start with what natto is in the first place. If you don’t know, natto is a traditional Japanese dish made of fermented soy beans. It’s got a very strong flavor- like soy sauce, but much stronger and a little…off. Something that is key about natto is how very, very sticky and stringy it is. Honestly, the more you stir it, the stickier and stringier and gooier it gets.

Hey everyone! Welcome back! I’m so glad you’re here with me to learn about the wonders of safe cooking. In the past when I experimented with curry from scratch, I ended up having to flush my eyes out in an attempt to rid myself of the lingering effects of fresh spices in open bodily orifices. Sounds bad, right? Correct. It was bad. However, here in the Penguin Snacks kitchen we are TURNING A NEW LEAF! Which means… dun dun duuuuuuun! It’s time to break out those spices again!

Melon soda floats! The epitome of a perfect summer day. It’s cool, refreshing, creamy, and sweet. A delightful combination of liquidy sweetness with cold and creamy ice cream. Throw in some ice chunks, and you’ve even got a unique mouthfeel, different from a regular old float. It’s crunchy and creamy and all kinds of amazing. Honestly, if I was coming out of a desert, this is what I would order as well.

OK everyone, here’s the deal. I am on a TIME CRUNCH this week, and have been for the past few weeks, as evidenced by my missing post last week… I am starting a new job, getting ready to move house, making some significant life changes, and trying to keep my head above water. Literally, at this very minute, I am writing this post during a ten-minute break for my new job’s orientation. Time management at its finest.
