Piper’s Cooking Adventures

Cooking adventures and recipes used by Piper J. Drake, because stress-cooking is a great way to handle writer’s block. It’s also a good way to remember to eat.

Warning: Piper cooking is not by exact measurement, a lot of it is “to taste” and these recipes are created while cooking the actual dish. They are intended to be guidelines. Much tweaking may be required along the way to get to the end-result desired for your palate. 

Note: This page is under construction as recipes are being retrieved slowly from a former Piper/PJ site. Please be patient as recipes are added here.
