Bio:

Lifelong graphic designer and artist creating sometimes whimsical, sometimes vintage-style marker illustrations. I also enjoy experimenting in the kitchen (of course) and photographing/posting my food creations (again, of course - I'm one of *those* people). I also design all of my own labels for Succulent Bath & Body (I'm a perfume nut as well as a font geek) and also draw inspiration from gardens and nature.

Apple Cake with Cardamom & Honey by Angie Cornelius

Chicago, IL, US

I'm always looking for a good apple spice recipe and like changing it up from the usual cinnamon. Cardamom is a favorite of mine and is the perfect touch for this rich cake made moist with sour cream.
This recipe was written entirely in my own chicken scratch, to look like recipe notes that I would typically scribble instead of using a printer.

I must have a thing for tomatoes and mozzarella; I have also illustrated Insalata Caprese. Lately I've been experimenting with hand-written recipes, like when you quickly scribble down something because you don't feel like printing out the recipe online. Or the feeling of seeing a favorite hand-written recipe from family or friends.
.
I'm also always looking for the authentic and learned a lot about how to produce that perfectly charred Napoletana pizza crust. If all else fails, there is always the grill and the bonus of garden tomatoes and basil this summer... might just try making homemade fresh mozzarella sometime, too!

Peppermint Clouds Meringue Holiday Cookies by Angie Cornelius

Chicago, IL, US

Read More...

Nothing reminds me of winter holidays more than the scent and flavor of peppermint. Even our Christmas tree is a collection of red and white swirled ornaments and lights in honor of peppermint. The peppermint flavor of these meringues is in the crushed candy cane topping; for a little extra holiday color you can also crush green striped mint candies. You can also add a very small amount of peppermint extract to the meringues but do it sparingly; too much can affect how the meringue sets up.

Peas Louise! A delicate yet intense pea soup by Angie Cornelius

Delicate yet intense like screen legend Louise Brooks. One of my favorites, Louise Brooks was a bit ahead of her time and somewhat contrary. When submitting an illustration for peas, the first thing that came to mind was "Peas Louise" instead of "Geez Louise." A simple starter that works with fresh or frozen peas and a minimum of ingredients. Marker and colored pencil art by Angie Cornelius of Lonesome Road Studio.
