Another addition to the cookbook project — you can see that I did the inks back in 2017, before the universe entirely fell apart around me, and am finally getting the scan edited and ready to share with you.
I get collard greens in my produce box sometimes, and since I don’t like pork we had to google around to find a way to cook them. I discovered that 2 turkey legs is a lot of meat, so we end up doubling up the collards with something else from the box a lot. Rainbow chard is a favorite!
I’m entirely certain that my red beans & rice recipe is Very White so I haven’t included it, as is this one, really, so take it with a grain of salt.
The advantage of this is that all the ingredients are pretty inexpensive, even out here in California. I can usually get a pair of turkey legs for around $5 and make a lot of meals out of this when the turkey meat is chopped up and added back into the mix.

Another day, another finished commission! Roxanne asked me for an affirmation, along with a chibi, on a larger page than my usual. Since I knew she likes the Winter Soldier, I drew soft goat farmer Bucky from end of Black Panther, though I gave him a gold wrap instead of the red one to go with his blue shawl.
The goats are both from goat memes, and they just really wanted to come along for the ride.
All of them agree on one thing, though: You are enough just as you are.

Desmond Tutu wrote an entire book titled No Future Without Forgiveness, and the title resonated with the soft, earthy swirls of this painting. There’s two different pieces in my Aglow series this month, and this one called out for a quote about forgiveness to float atop the warm spiral.
A patron commented that it looked like milk being stirred into tea, which fits perfectly with the feeling of warmth and care — for oneself, for others, for the world — that I had hoped to convey.
Above, you can see the hand-lettered quote, a reminder floating on warm earthtones. Below, you can see this large painting in a frame, waiting to bring peace to your home.

The second new painting in my Aglow series this month, this one’s got a quote from another wonderful human being who inspires us to be better humans — Mr. Rogers.
There are three ways to ultimate success: The first way is to be kind. The second way is to be kind. The third way is to be kind.
The message was shortened for this small painting, but still contains his threefold wisdom: be kind. be kind. be kind.
Above, you can see a detail of the brush calligraphy against the soft bloom of purple against blue watercolor. Below, the painting is in a frame, waiting to add a spot of kindness to your home.

This odd little cookbook project isn’t entirely abandoned! Your artist is finally, finally starting to catch up with the many things that 2018 interfered with, and one of them is this cookbook project.
This one’s a little primer on how to roast veggies. Roast veggie hash with eggs is the best breakfast to have for dinner. Enjoy!
