Crunchyroll #75: Curry-Men from “Laid Back Camp”

Learn how to make it here!

Welcome 2018! This is my first food recipe of 2018, and I couldn’t be more excited about it. Laid-Back Camp, the adorable new 2018 winter anime, is all about a girl getting away from the hustle and bustle of regular life to go camping for the weekend. As someone who just came back from a two-week winter break, I can tell you that there is no better thing to do while “getting away from it all” than eating some really, really good food. To be fair, camping food is not my go-to comfort food, but the recipe we’re talking about this week has a certain charm to it.

Crunchyroll #74: Zoom Cocktail from “Love is Like a Cocktail”

Check out how to make it here! 

Has your 2017 been an absolute train-wreck like mine? Can I even count the times my life has fallen apart this year, only to have me try to spackle it back together with a thin layer of optimism and sheer desperation? Is that way too depressing? Ah well, so it goes. Thankfully, my optimism is eternal and I have high hopes for my 2018.

Crunchyroll #73: Salmon Coulibiac from Shokugeki no Soma!

Learn how to make it here!

Seriously, three days of effort went into this. Mostly it’s because I have a day job and I wanted to do a really thorough preparation. I just couldn’t fit all the steps into one evening. Nonetheless, all told, I think I spend about 6 hours actively preparing the various parts that go into this. Which brings me to my next question…HOW ON EARTH DID KUROKIBA MAKE THIS DURING ONE SHOKUGEKI?!?!?

Crunchyroll #72: Wing Gyoza from “Shokugeki no Soma”!

Learn how to make it here!

First big thing we need to address: Erina’s father somehow thinks it’s a good idea to shut down one of the dormitories that houses students at his own academy. His justification is that the house is set apart from the school and therefore hard to control, which is all well and good, but let’s be real…WHERE WILL THE STUDENTS LIVE INSTEAD? Seriously, you don’t just shut down a dorm because you don’t like that you can’t control the kids there. Logistically, you then have to find housing for these students and seriously, how easy is that? The school can’t just build a new dorm for these kids, so where will they go? It just doesn’t make sense to close down a dorm to get kids to conform.

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.

Bananas and citrus and honey and milk – whip it all into a drink, and you have something refreshing, comforting, and so, so satisfying! I swear, Chi-chan from Love is Like a Cocktail! is so lucky. Her husband is my dream come true. Have I said this before? I think I have. I’m a hardworking girl myself. I would love it if someone lived at home and made me dinner and fixed me drinks every night and carried me to bed when I fell asleep on the couch.
