Today, I'm taking a short break from my usual secret tips to share some exciting news with all of you. As some of you may already know, my first published book "I Think I Am in Friend-Love with You" will be released in bookstores next month.
Just get some pure peppermint oil and put it on the end of a napkin or tissue or a swab. Put it around youre nostrils and breath in deep. It is very refreshing and opens up those clogged sinuses . After a while you stop coughing. Do it until you stop.
The individual foil sheets made them really easy to pull out.
This would make a fantastic illustrated Yumi-guide. According to Simply Recipes, apparently most blenders can be used with a standard mason jar (or wide-mouthed). If your standard blender container is dirty, occupied or lost, you may be able to swap in that old spaghetti sauce container. Pictures below.

Wow, Yumi's artwork in tattoo form! That's one dedicated fan.
Jim Lahey's no-knead bread is my favorite easy bread recipe. I've written an article about it, with a slight adaptation of Lahey's recipe here. I'd love to see the instructions drawn out Yumi-style!

This is one of the very first recipes my mom gave me when I moved out. Being Chinese, she didn't bother giving me a written recipe. It's pretty simple, and an excellent way to use your rice cooker:
Over years of almost-daily orange eating, I have developed a 90% effective workflow for removing the peel from an orange in one piece. While this might not seem important, people who see me do it generally ask about it, so I thought it would be cool if you would illustrate the process for the world. Having a nice hand-drawn set of instructions to frame on my wall would save me time explaining it to people as well.
