about me? 

 

ummm.........

 

i'm an artist in So Cal, and love trying food, especially desserts (anyone ever have baked/candied cheetos?). i'm currently waiting for bbq season to make my own beef jerky, also currently trying to catch a giant black horse on the new Zelda game. but more importantly i now really want some actual brownies

Welcome to the BT! Are your voices friendly? 

 

What does that matter? Only for wheter the Light or the Shadow is the correct faction, right? Friendly voices mean the Light, ones that tell you to kill everyone around you is the Shadow.

:wub: Art is extremely important to society. What kind of art do you do?

 

could not agree more. and i'm a comic book artist :)

 

 

and happy to swap recipes, how is there not a thread for that anyways? 

 

 

hmmm actually i think most of the voices are good but there's that rogue mischievous one that shouts a lot.

There are a thousand food threads if you dig but this is as good a one for recipes as any :). Derailing is good, and since Still the BT, food isn't really even a technical detail.

 

 

 

Baked/candied cheetos and jerky please?

 

I'll dig up my standard evil brownie recipe to start,

mostly c/ping this from other places I posted it - including gluten free and dairy free options. Tested and awesome either way,

 

 

fudge brownies...

 

 

melt 1-1/4 cup butter, coconut oil, palm oil, or other oil you like to bake with

beat with 4 cups sugar

beat in slowly, one at a time, 8 large eggs

stir in 2 teaspoons vanilla

************

sift or whisk together 2 cups all purpose flour or gluten free all purpose flour (cup for cup substitute type)

1-1/2 cups cocoa,

and 1 teaspoon salt

***********

stir the dry into the egg mixture until just combined

*************

optional:

stir in 2 cups chopped nuts

stir in 2 to 4 cups enjoy life chocolate chips (gluten, dairy soy free), or any kind of chocolate chips or chunks you like, and/or candy pieces and/or marshmallows and/or dried fruit (cherries are teh nommiest) or whatever if desired.

***************

you can either spread the batter into a greased 15 x 10 pan, a 13 x 9 pan or two 13 x 9 pans, depending on how thick you want the brownies.

**************

bake at 325, about 40 - 35 minutes in a 15 x 10 pan, about an hour or so in one 13 x 9, check it after a half hour in two 13 x 9's...

 

don't overbake, you're going for not quite set in the center.

 

if you like you can spread chocolate chips or bars with or without karshmallows on them while they're still hot, they'll melt in ten minutes, and you can use a spoon or knife or spatula to spread them smooth for a nice hard chocolate coating.

i'll have to look up the jerky one as its not on the computer. basically we soak strips in the same marinade we use for steaks then bake on the lowest setting or close to it in the oven until they dry out.  the cheetos though: 
 

             1 cup butter

Bring butter, sugars, syrup to boil stirring constantly for 5 minutes while boiling. Remove from heat and add vanilla and baking soda. Stir well. add Cheetos. Spread out onto ungreased cookie sheet.Cook at 250°F for 45 minutes to 1 hour -stirring every 15 minutes.When cool break into pieces

no idea only done the cheetos. but i'd imagine it would. its essentially like a caramel, sticky that doesnt super harden. taste wise you could try it on other stuff. hmmm.....would be interesting on doritos.....

 

though whatever you try it on has to be as sturdy as a cheeto because the process of breaking it apart will break the chips. 

 

 

 

and those brownies sound great! man with peanut butter cups and marshmallows.....now i'm hungry.

Oh ya very good with peanut butter cups. They're even good with peppermint patties but my favorite is heath bars.

 

I think the cheeto recipe would work with sturdy chips maybe... trying to figure something dairy and wheat free, and I'm pretty sure earth balance would work for the butter. May have some experimenting to do....

And I'm thinking of candying bacon....

 

Vegetarians, Avert your eyes.....

 

 

We're getting 1/2 a pig and 1/4 cow. All I can think of is how to spend the next year cooking it mmmmmmmmmm....

 

 

And I really want a tiny baby lamb but I expect they're all bespoke for Easter. Such nommy little lollipop ribs...

It'll be about 90 lbs of beef and 100 lbs of pork once it's cut. About a year's worth for us, plus chickens and fishies. TBH I'd take another 100 lbs in ribs if I could :laugh:

 

It's all grass fed and pastured and local, and the animals look happy so...

You just freeze it and don't buy meat at the market every week.

 

The slow cooker and the smoker and the oven and the grill will all be busy :)

 

If it lasts more than a year, yay us.

    • In what sense are we giving our country away?
    • Yes but there is opening yourself to channel and then there is a quick unintentional use.  If you notice before Rand became a channeler, fully aware of what he was doing and willing try to embrace the power, all you get are the side effects from channeling (the taking chances etc,,) but not the filth feeling.  After book 1, when the using the power and the side effects happened near the same time, all he gets is the filth.  The difference is he knows he can channel and needs to embrace the source to channel.  Just like the women who are starting to channel never seem to notice the warmth of touching the female half until they survive the side effects and become aware what they are doing.  A wilder like Nyn, had she stayed in the Two Rivers, never would of felt the feeling of opening herself to the source since she had built up a block, so it might have to do with you have to open yourself up to the power to feel the good or bad.     In one of Rand's lives in book 2 I believe he was a member of the Queen's guards and was lucky, he thought later he understood why but he didn't care.  He was suffering from touching the male half but was basicly a wilder and it was never said he was feeling the filth.  So I think a lot has to do with someone who channels but doesn't really know it or is never trained how to do it aren't fully opening themselves up enough to feel the filth or warmth.  They are incapable of doing anything more then a quick touch of the surface.   It's possible Rand would of started to feel nausea when he accidently channeled and not probably not understand why.  But there seems to be a difference between inadvertently channeling and intentionally channeling.
