Welcome!

Welcome to my blog, where one may find all sorts of random, hopefully amusing tidbits about food & other things.

date-walnut bread with lots of other good things inside.

When I was younger, I used to think I was really clever that I knew what dates were and my 10-11 year old peers did not. The dialogue would continue as follows:
me: don't you just love dates?
friend: uh ... sure?
me: they're just so good.
friend: yeah, i guess. ... wait, you mean with like two people getting dinner or something right?
me: nahh bruah, the dried fruit!
friend: what?!
explanation followed.

I wasn't so snobby (or ghetto), I was actually really quiet. But I was proud of myself for being aware of this random piece of food knowledge. To this day, I enjoy knowing everything about food, although I don't flaunt it as I did in the past. And yes, to this day, my stories generally continue to lack a point and/or climaxes.

pizza toast.

WARNING: incredibly unfocused post.

It's 7:08am. Still Sunday morning. I'm still awake.

So I'll talk about something I made at home a while ago, and although it was in March, which proved to be a pretty frigid month, this one day in particular was extremely nice out. And I hope this isn't giving away anything about where I live, because I have enough clingy people, as it is.

Imma describe what I made, okay?

Here's what I am listening to, as background music:

chocolate makes things better, no?

It's 6:32am, on a Sunday morning .. rain is falling. steal some covers, share some skin. clouds are shrouding us in moments unforgettable ...



That was appropes.

Anywayyz, the only things I have made after the nutella pretzel brownies (a while ago) are these chocolate covered miscellaneous items:

LIMITLESS [additions to brownies]

That's a movie, right? One of my friends elaborately explained the concept of that movie to me one day. I'm not much for movies, though.

Too bad that friend wasn't here for this past weekend; he would have really enjoyed the Nutella-Swirled Pretzel Topped Brownies I made yesterday.

Yep, that's Nutella in the title.

bovine & walnut-ricotta cake with orange curd.


A goal I recently made is to travel to Tibet & raise a yak. Why Tibet? Well, in one of my courses, I learned about how the North & Northwest areas of China are not getting enough water to sustain the population there. As a result, there are methods being implemented to direct water from the South & Southeast areas to the North & NW. There are many problems and expenses associated with this endeavor. For example, eastern India & Bengal would suffer, as would Tibet.



And if water was less readily available in Tibet, then the inhabitants of Tibet would be detrimentally affected. The people would not get as much water as they need. The yaks would not get the water they need. They would only get minimal water, and in turn, their ordinarily luscious fur would turn mangy. Now, my goal is to raise a yak in Tibet. My baby ain't gonna have NO MANGY ASS FUR.

Therefore, Northern Asia better get their s*** together if they intend to avoid my angry letters & protests regarding the health of the yaks in the Tibetan region.

spiced applesauce cake.


Today, I'm not going to talk about Xabi Alonso or my love, Rafael Nadal (no link provided; he's not so photogenic, he's better in action). What I'm going to talk about is spiced applesauce cake.

I got the recipe from smittenkitchen, a beautiful site with such appealing pictures that I am tempted to just make everything on there. Usually, my focus is on the sweet things though. I like my desserts.
