Dash's Blog

welcome to my blog! I am not big on writing so there probably wont be many posts. enjoy!

pasta carbonara with ollie [IN PROGRESS][NOT FINISHED]


  • pasta (spagghetti is best)
  • mushrooms
  • bacon
  • eggs
  • onion
  • garlic
  • red pepper
  • black pepper
  • oregono
  • salt
  • olive oil

rice cooker lentil soup

note that this soup can be made on the stove and it will be better that way but i live in a dorm so my cooking oppurtunities are not so great


  • black lentils
  • tom yum paste
  • chives
  • cilantro
  • tomatoes
  • cut wakame
  • dashi
  • black eyed peas
  • veggies of choice

any of these ingredients can be substituted or left out, but doing so will affect things like cooking time or the amount of water you need!

step 1: cook them

*if you are using black eyed peas or any ofther legumes you have to soak them first, time varies*

put lentils in the rice cooker, and for every cup of lentils put 1.5 cups of water. for 1 serving i will add 1tsp of tom yum paste and a tiny bit of dashi, but that is up to taste. if you have veggies that want to be cooked, add those in too.

once everything is in you can just turn on the rice cooker :)

step 2:

now that everything is cooked, you can add fresh ingredients. Here i will add chopped chives, cilantro, and cut wakame (but any kind of dried seaweed will be good) also things like tomatoes and leafy greens can be cooked, but can also be added fresh either way is good.

step 3: eat it

eat the soup it is good :)

thank you to my dad for teaching me how to make lentil soup!

Dash's attempt at keeping a blog


I've been having a pretty good semester, even though I am insanely busy all the time. Thinking about switching to a math major. Had to go to the hospital for the first time last month (not fun). I've developed a picross addiction and play it for 1-5 hours a day (depends on how busy I am), it was giving me headaches pretty quickly so I started printing the puzzles out. This also makes it easier to work on them in class. I think about picross all the time... I somehow made my final project for one class about picross... I put picross in one of my paintings for my painting class... the world is full of picross. Me and my roommate and our neighbor are watching Our Flag Means Death together which has been very fun. All of my houseplants survived the move and have been doing really well except my bamboo is starting to die. My isopods have also been happy, the babies are getting quite big and are super cute. I have to mist them like 3 times a day though because even though I'm in a humid climate my room gets ridiculously dry somehow. I gave them new moss that had some clover growing on it and they like to climb on top of the clover. Those are all the updates I can think of right now. Bye!


The meds are destroying my appetite so I might see if I can switch to something else... It depends cuz there r shortages I think. I've been way ahead on most of my schoolwork so to keep me occupied I've been practicing javascript more! so far I've made a screen keyboard and a couple of other functions but maybe someday I will turn all this knowledge into a game, well see. Also I found a giant brown canvas jacket at an antique store for only $16! it is almost exactly what I have been looking for (really I wanted a black one but I can't be picky for only $16).


Took (perscribed) (legal) stimulants and coded for approximately 5 hours straight. tbh I do not like them as much as the illegal stimulants bcuz it made me kinda mad all day. also the last episode of the last of us was kinda bad.


I am having a great weekend! Yesterday I went hiking with some friends and today I am working on a new stick n poke. It is of a snake, if I remember to I'll attach a picture of it once it's healed. Also am excited to see the new episode of the last of us tonight.
