November is Brussels sprouts season in New York. I especially love the ones sold on the stalk. For this recipe’s illustration, I sketched the entire stalk on paper. Using watercolors, lights and darks were painted first, then middle tones, finishing with shadows and highlights. The piece didn’t look right. It seemed too small for the paper. On a second attempt I zoomed into one section. The leaves and buds began to intrigue me. They looked like faces, crescent moons and layers of abstract shapes. When the painting was finished, it felt as if I had captured the sprouts' spirit.
Rabbit Chow Chili is a vague, throw-whatever-in-a-pot kind of recipe that I created after becoming a vegetarian. I had just come home for winter break from Columbus College of Art and Design, and my family was having chili (which I couldn't eat) so I made my own. I might get teased for eating rabbit food, but everyone agrees that my chili is worth chowing down on!
Cabbage and mashed potatoes has always been a staple dish my family serves on St. Patrick's Day and in the winter to bring out our Irish heritage. I would always mix the two together and thought that I was the only one. While doing research for my digital assignment at Columbus College of Art and Design, I soon found out that I was in fact not the only one and that it had a name: colcannon! This recipe may not look the prettiest but it's a wonderful comfort food dish for those cold winter nights!
