If you’ve already tried embroidery, painting and creative writing, try these aesthetic recipes to test your cooking and photography skills. It might just be the perfect addition to your quarantine hobbies.

Whipped Drinks

  • If you’ve been scrolling through your For You Page on Tik Tok recently, you’ve probably already heard about dalgona coffee, more commonly known as whipped coffee. To make dalgona coffee, whisk together 1 tablespoon of instant coffee, water and sugar. For a workout to combat the calories you will soon be consuming, whisk by hand, but if you prefer to make your drink without the exercise, use an electric mixer. Once your coffee mixture peaks, spoon it on top of a glass of milk and enjoy.

Cloud Bread

  • Contrary to its name, cloud bread is actually closer to a meringue or a pavlova than actual bread. But does it really matter what it’s called when it looks so fluffy? To make it, you need 3 egg whites, 2.5 tablespoons  of sugar and a little over a tablespoon of cornstarch. 
  • First, preheat your oven to 350℉ and whisk your egg whites in a clean bowl, gradually adding sugar until medium peaks form. Add in your cornstarch and continue whisking until you achieve stiff peaks. If you want to spruce up your cloud bread, you can also add food coloring now. Shape your mixture on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for about 20 minutes. After you take it out of the oven, you can finally satisfy your childhood curiosity of knowing what clouds taste like.

Tornado Omelette

  • For the experienced chef, try your hand at the tornado omelette. You need 1 large egg, 1 teaspoon of heavy cream, salt and pepper to your taste and a significant amount of chopstick skills. First, mix together your egg, heavy cream, salt and pepper while heating up some oil in a pan on medium heat. Pour in your egg mixture into the pan and wait 30 seconds. Once the bottom is set, work quickly to make the shape of your omelette. Hold two chopsticks steadily in the middle of your pan and use the pan’s handle to rotate your pan clockwise until the tornado shape is formed. Leave your eggs to set for 30 more seconds, and then ease out your chopsticks. Plate your omelette with some rice and garnish by adding some parsley or some freshly ground black pepper for the picture perfect omelette.
