Hi, I’m Laurel. I’m a freelance writer, recipe developer, and Simpsons fan. I started writing Cooking The Simpsons for Paste Magazine in 2015 and, over the course of a couple of years, wrote 25 articles with original recipes. The series was shared by The Simpsons official social media and was featured on Australian news outlets (the opposite of a booting?). The premise was simple: the show contains countless dishes, recipes, and general food stuffs, and I did my best to recreate some of them. Each month I picked a classic episode and cooked up a featured food item, sometimes also making an edible/drinkable version if the original was, well, super gross (I’m looking at you Moon Waffles and Flaming Moe).
Since Cooking The Simpsons ended, I’ve missed making these whacky recipes. I decided to launch this blog to keep the magic going and share the results with you. Early posts feature recipes from my Paste days and a link to the original article, while new posts are the whole shebang right here on The Joy of Cooking Milhouse. Expect new posts and recipes a few times a month and follow on Instagram to keep up with the latest posts.
