Pancakes made by Emily Nikzat


  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/3 cup warmish milk (user 1 1/4 cup to make them thicker)


  1. Sift together all of the dry ingredients
  2. Melt the butter, then set aside
  3. Heat milk in the microwave so it doesn’t harden your butter when you mix them all. Dump the milk and butter in the bowl, and then add the egg
  4. Whisk until smooth, then cook like you would any other pancake.

First time making sushi from the ground up

SushiWith a small lesson in basic sushi making with the cooking club at Oregon State University and the knowledge from a dear friend, Emily (also a great chef), I was able to embark on making sushi on my own. With the basic solid I decided to make spicy tuna rolls and ahi tuna sashimi, but to get a true opinion I had to ask friends. Therefore, we spent the evening programming, enjoying eachothers company and snacking on homemade sushi.
