Carrot Stew | The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

"This simple stew sat simmering for a long time
to bring out the sweetness of the carrots."

Pikachu w/ Manga Edible Sculpture | Pokémon / Edible Book Day

          Today is International Edible Book Day! Started in 2000, the Edible Book Festival is often celebrated throughout March and April with various events around the world, but the official day is April 1st because Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin, who studied and wrote about the relationship between culture and food, was born on April 1, 1755 (he is the originator of the phrase "Tell me what you eat, and I'll tell you who you are"), and because it's April Fool's Day and the idea of "eating your words" is a pun-y thing. :) (Here's a link to the original Edible Book Festival website, but it is no longer updated. The Facebook page is still a little active & has lots of photos.)
          Make sure to check your local library, college, art museum, community center, or other places like that to see if there is an Edible Book event near you!

          Earlier in March, my daughter's elementary school had an Edible Book event and contest to coincide with Read Across America Week and Dr. Seuss' birthday. Smalls has been loving the various Pokémon manga series, so we decided to make an edible creation centered around that! Because the contest was going to be judged by the whole student body (by voting with tokens after seeing all of the creations), we thought we'd construct a pokémon that most people would be familiar with; Pikachu, of course! So we made Pikachu reading manga. And we won Best in Show/First Place!!

Persimmon Jelly Tarts | The Dragon Prince

“Uhh, jelly tart?”

          Yay! It's Ezran's birthday (March 19)! And you know that that kid is a fiend for jelly tarts, so to celebrate, I'm sharing the jelly tart recipe that I submitted for The Dragon Prince Recipe Zine late last year year.
          This recipe is made with persimmons, which we learn is what type the jelly filling is in season 1 episode 3 (thank you, Claudia), as Ezran leaves orange, persimmon jelly handprints on the huge picture frame that is actually a secret door (and then again on the stones in the secret tunnel). Oops, Ezran!

Fish Pie (Ver. 1) | The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

“A mainstay in any fisherman’s home, the crisp crust pairs well with the fishy flavor.”

–– Fish Pie, In-game description, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

          Featured in the beautiful fan art recipe zine, Hyrule: Taste of the Wild, available in PDF format on Shattered Earth's Etsy shop, here is my first version of the fish pie from Breath of the Wild! I made this back in early 2017, and am finally posting it (!!!). This version is a creamy pot-pie-type of filling with white fish, potato, and milk. Stay-tuned for version 2, which is a salmon en croute!

Grookey Smoothie Bowl | Pokémon: Sword & Shield

          Yay, Grookey! A cute, monkey-like grass-type pokémon–and one of the three starters for the new Galar region in the upcoming Pokémon: Sword and Shield (late 2019)! Grookey seems like such a sweetie-pie, full of energy and curiosity. :) I really love the vibrant green color, which translates well to a smoothie.
