Wow yeah, these are super good. I'm especially a big fan of the drawing you cropped (the one with the hat and the bow). Also, Earl Grey and Peach Tea? SEND ME YOUR COOKIES INTERNATIONALLY

Oops. Thought I responded, but I guess I forgot to hit the 'Submit' button.

Thanks. ^_^ I had forgotten how difficult copying someone's art can be, especially when the artist has a love for drawing fancy hairstyles. (What makes it really bad is that it eats up a lot of time, which sucks if you have little time to spare.)

haha...Unfortunately, the cookies sold out pretty quickly from what I hear. But, I'm sure you can make them at home; there are many recipes for Early Grey cookies on the internet and all you have to do is replace the Earl Grey with whatever flavor you like. ^_^

I wanted to update with art but I suddenly got pretty busy with work-related stuff this week so I'm updating with more random foods.

>> Cinnamon Oatmeal cookies (made at work):

---------------------------------------------

>> Sugar cookies:

I took some time out to learn how my microwave's bake function works and did a test by making these. I wish I could've given them a flavor, but it was late and the supermarket was already closed at the time.

---------------------------------------------

>> Pizza:

Trial 1 -- Chicken pizza:

I wanted to test out the bake function a little more and decided to make real food this time, not sweets. I was being a little ambitious on this one, however, and ended up messing things up quite a bit. Although, it wasn't just my first time trying to bake food in the microwave; I've never made pizza from scratch so it was quite the interesting endeavor. I learned quite a few things from this test run and made sure to make a note of them for later. The only regret I had was not having stomach medicine set aside just in case. :P

Trial 2 -- Chicken & broccoli pizza:

Changed around a few things topping-wise as well as made sure not to repeat the same mistakes as I did the first time and the results turned out much better. Still far from perfect, but considering I'm still a beginner I can't complain. At least I didn't need the stomach medicine. What I changed:

1) Reduced the cooking time by 5 minutes. I wasn't sure how long it would take to complete in the first run, so I had to take a guess. Now I know for certain.
2) Fixed the sauce. The sauce I used for the first pizza wasn't very good (incredibly bland) so I recooked it, adding in a bunch of spices.


I've still got enough dough for two more pizzas, so I'll try other toppings tomorrow. As for art, I hope to update with new stuff soon.
