Can you post a recipe for ________________?
Of course, just write it up in an ask, or leave a screenshot in a submission. If it’s from a particular show, please tell me what show, and preferably what episode (if you don’t have a screenshot) it’s from. If it’s just something you want to learn to make in general, please be as specific as possible in describing it.
How often do you post?
I try to post a new recipe once a week. Sometimes I get to post two, sometimes, if I’m busy or really press for ingredients, I won’t be able to post any. Sorry.
What haven’t you posted a recipe for my submission yet?
There are a number of reasons.
1. It’s further down the list of submissions. I tend to go in order.
2. I don’t know what you meant when you described it to me. If I don’t know what you mean, I can’t make it. So, please, be as descriptive as possible if you don’t know what something is called. Screenshots really help sometimes.
3. I don’t have the time/ingredients/funds to attempt your suggestion. Some recipes take more than others.
4. I want to address another recipe first. For instance, if I’m making fried rice, I’d like to have a recipe for cooking good rice up first, so I can reference it.
5. I simply didn’t get your suggestion. I’m sorry, but it happens sometimes.
Can you explain this part of the recipe to me? It’s a little confusing…
Just leave your question in my ask box, and I will try to explain it the best I can, or link you to a video that’ll show you how to do it. Please please PLEASE let me know if anything is confusing, that way I can go back and change the recipe to make it more clear.
Where do you get your recipes from?
Honestly, I’d be hard pressed to tell you one place. I learned a lot of things from my parents when I was younger, I took a short cooking class in Japan, and I read a lot of recipes. Most of the time, I just gather up a bunch of recipes, take what I think works best from each of them, and try it out. If the result is good, I post it here.
I made _______________ and it didn’t come out good at all! What gives?
Well, a lot of cooking is adjusting for your individual tastes. If you want to make something that takes a lot of sugar, but you don’t like sweet things, take a little bit out. Same goes for things like soy sauce, salt, and hot spices. Just be careful about it when baking. When I put an ingredient as optional, it’s there for precisely that reason: to make things saltier/spicier/sweeter/meatier/healthier/whatever to your tastes. If it’s really that bad, please let me know. I make all of these dishes before I post them, and I try to write up exactly what I did to create it, so if something went wrong, or I wrote something up wrong, it would be nice if I could figure it out.
Why didn’t you make it exactly like they did in the show?
Sometimes, I take shortcuts. I know, it’s kind of cheap. But I do it to make it easier on you all as well. Also, while I post recipes with one specific show in mind, I’d like it to be applicable to other shows that have it as well.
So…who exactly are you?
Whelp, I am a 21 year old college student, majoring in Theatre Arts. I am a cosplayer, amateur photographer, artist, research and history junkie, and all around nerd. I’ve been into anime and gaming for quite some time, and I’ve always had a love of food and cooking, so this just seemed like a natural hobby. After following animufood
for a while (check it out, seriously) I finally decided to make this blog.

Also worth mentioning, my roommate/amiga/tastetester/semi-co-runner who proofreads my recipes to make sure they are understandable and edible, and I feel I owe her this short bio as thanks. Her personal blog is justkeepswimmingyo.tumblr.com
