recent They Draw and Cook work

My Fig Jam recipe was featured on They Draw and Cook with other "luscious watercolor fig recipes." Here are some other recipes I recently submitted. I love drawing food, and I love having the format of this website as a constraint.

See more of my recipes under my they draw and cook label.

How to Prepare an Artichoke. The text is from my own notes about my experience steaming artichokes, but the last time I prepared them, it took a lot longer than 30 minutes to steam them, which is a bit embarrassing now that this is online! I tried to look at different web sources for how long other people take to steam their artichokes, and found numbers between 20 and 90 minutes. So that's confusing. Last time I was trying to prepare 4 quite large artichokes at once, and I think I had the heat too low. I just wish I'd experimented a bit more before putting this out there forever!

I love me some edible flowers, especially nasturtiums. Yum! I wish I had taken the time I spent on the text in this one on some of my other recipes, where my poor handwriting (even though I certainly made an effort to be legible) takes away, I think, from the fig jam, as an example.

For some reason, the colors on this herb salad illustration look very garish on the Draw and Cook website. Hmm. Well, this is one of my favorite summer meals: tons of herbs with and edible flowers with a light dressing.

Sorry to hear you have been unwell. You probably need a good stiff broth inside you.
PS Your hand writing is absolutely charming.

I'm starting to feel better, and I've been getting plenty of miso broth! :)
Thanks! Haha. I like my handwriting for some things, and I think in some of the recipes it works. But it bugs me in fig jam!

I like your drawings very much - lush, loose, loud and delicious.
