Crunchyroll #71: Welcome Cupcake from “Black Clover”

Learn how to make it here!
Honestly, I don’t know about you guys, but cupcakes make me so happy. I’m on a first name basis with the lady who runs the local cupcake shop in my town. I visit at LEAST three times a week just to satiate my cupcake cravings. I’ve wracked up so many frequent customer points that I barely have to shell out money for these treats any more and you know what? Sadly, cupcakes just don’t really show up all that often in anime, so I never have much of an excuse to make them at home! That and the fact that my local cupcake shop is convenient, delicious, and perfect in every way. But, when I saw this episode of Black Clover I knew in my heart that this was going to have to change. I couldn’t buy this cupcake from my local cupcake shop, so I’d either have to make it, or go without.

Crunchyroll #67: Black Pepper Buns from “Food Wars!”

Learn how to make them here! 

 

WE ARE BACK AGAIN, and where do I even start this week? With the fact that Soma invented a dough that can be a bread dough OR a pasta dough? With the fact that I don’t have the time to make bread doughs from scratch?! With the fact that a bunch of people accepted food from a complete stranger in this last episode?!?!

Crunchyroll #64: Mapo Tofu from Shokugeki no Soma

Learn how to make it here! 

 

IT’S HERE, my party people friends. Food Wars! Season 3 has arrived and I am beyond excited for its return! The first episode started off strong, setting up the rest of the season quite nicely. I loved the pacing- it moved along quickly, and introduced new characters and ideas with little fuss. Of course, being the first episode, they didn’t unload an ahhhh-maaaaaazing new dish on us to start, but I felt they did quite a nice job introducing at least one recipe to tide us over until they unleash the really good stuff. Mapo Tofu.

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.

Hamburger steak, oh hamburger steak, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. Actually, just kidding, why bother? I’m not a natural born poet- I’ll just come right out and say it: cheese filled hamburger steak is the food you never knew you needed, but always knew in your heart that you wanted. I mean, honestly, how can you go wrong?

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.
