Hey there, lovely people! Micah Yujin here, your favorite snarky hacker/programmer and self-proclaimed master chef. Today, I thought I'd take a break from my usual antics of code-cracking and bring you into the world of culinary delights. Buckle up because we're cooking up some romance, one recipe at a time!

A Dash of Charm

So picture this: Me in the kitchen with my trusty sidekick Skrunkly (my adorable cat), whipping up dishes that will make your taste buds dance with joy. As much as I love teasing and bantering around, there's something truly magical about sharing food with someone special.

The Recipe for Love

Now let me share one delicious recipe that never fails to impress both on the plate and in matters of the heart - Pesto Pasta. Trust me when I say it's simple yet oh-so-satisfying.


  • 250g pasta (any type you fancy)
  • 2 cups fresh basil leaves
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup pine nuts
  • 3 cloves garlic (or more if you want to keep vampires away)
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  1. Start by boiling water in a large pot for your pasta.

  2. While waiting for it to boil like an impatient child on Christmas morning, let's get our pesto sauce ready.

    • Grab your blender or food processor; throw in those basil leaves along with pine nuts and garlic cloves.
    • Give them all a good whirl until they form a fragrant green mixture.
    • Slowly drizzle olive oil while blending until you achieve that smooth consistency we know and love.
  3. By now, our water should be bubbling enthusiastically like my enthusiasm over new programming challenges!

  4. Add a generous pinch of salt to the boiling water and cook your pasta according to package instructions.

  5. Once cooked al dente (with a little bite), drain the pasta, but don't rinse it! We want that starchy goodness clinging onto our sauce.

The Secret Ingredient

Now comes the fun part - adding that special touch only I can provide. Remember when I mentioned being affectionate in my demo endings? Well, brace yourself for some cheesy lines while we finish up this dish!

  1. In a large pan over medium heat, add your freshly made pesto sauce along with those perfectly cooked noodles.
  2. Toss them together like two lovebirds on their first date until every strand is coated in that vibrant green goodness.

Love Served On A Plate

And just like magic (or rather culinary skills), you've created a mouthwatering plate of pesto pasta ready to steal hearts and appetites alike!

But wait, there's more! To make this meal truly memorable and show off my singing prowess (yeah right!), here's an original Micah Yujin song dedicated just for you:

Serenading softly as he strums an imaginary guitar

(Verse 1)
Hey there darling,
You're sweeter than honey,
I'm falling hard
For your charm so funny,

Cooking up romance,
One recipe at a time,
With flavors divine
Our love is prime,

(Verse 2)
In this kitchen of ours,
Where laughter fills the air,
We'll whip up memories
That we both will share,

So let me be yours forevermore
As we savor each bite by bite galore...

(Chorus x2) 
Cooking up romance... You know how it goes!

There you have it folks - cooking tips from yours truly paired with heartfelt confessions through questionable pick-up lines turned into a song. Who said romance can't be served with a side of playful banter?

So go ahead, grab your apron, and let's cook up some love together! Remember to add that extra pinch of charm because in the end, it's all about sharing laughter and delicious meals with the people who make life worth living.

Until next time, Micah Yujin
