Comics: Episode 1

Culinary Comics

This is a late celebration, but Cynful Kitchen (formerly Cynful Journey) has reached 6 years old in August. When I am not developing or testing recipes, I like to draw cartoons and comics. If you like my comics, please feel free to share them on social media. They present down right honest little snippets of my life right now. I wish I could create recipes all the time — that would mean that I would not have much sleep. They do say, “Sleep when the baby sleeps!” Could I please have more coffee?

Some of them could be behind the scenes bloopers. I mean, nobody is perfect. That’s why cooking for our families is fun because funny and embarrassing moments are memorable. I hope to capture sense of humour in my journey as a food blogger and a first time mom. It isn’t easy having a sense of humour post-partum when you have a baby who needs you all the time. It is quite funny because it is the first question the Post-Partum Depression questionnaire asks me every two months on a scale of 1 to 5: “How is your sense of humour?” (Paraphrased question, of course.)

Culinary ART comics

My husband and I came up with the name Culinary ART because Art is the name we agreed to use for our son in Cyber-space. We were thinking of Baby Bistro, but Bistro seems to be attached to every thing. Our kitchen is anything but a bistro!

Having a baby-wearing device such as a wrap, carrier or a sling is so handy to have in the kitchen! Slow cooker and the Vitamix are so great to have in the kitchen. It really isn’t easy to cook with baby. My son is two months away from being able to sit unassisted. I am hoping he will learn to love to help around the kitchen. We do have an apron waiting for him!

We hope you enjoy the comics while I can’t be actively posting recipes. They help keep me sane for now. Share them via the Facebook page or on Twitter!

If there are any thing you would like me to draw, please comment below.

  1. I’m glad you’re seeing the humour in cooking with your little one. I’ve always thought that I’d do very well on Chopped/Masterchef/Whatever if the challenge was cooking one-handed while holding an overly curious toddler. It’s certainly a bizarre challenge, but my first (who is now 4.5 and can thankfully help/stand on a stool) and my second child (who is 16 months) are both deeply fascinated by the kitchen and cooking. I’m certainly happy for that, but it does present some challenges – including those darned onions!
