    I'm known as the local culinary expert in these parts. I enjoy cooking, baking, programming, video games, films, drawing, and reading novels. In my spare time, I'm manipulating time and space with a waffle iron.

    Antony at it again!!

    Some criticism/suggestions (don't worry, nothing too harsh.. ): Since you're dealing with vehicles: you could change that warped arrow (path) into a more road-like structure (lines, black, nothing overly colourful/flashy though). You should try to tighten up the outline of the "B" in Burnett. Nothing some vector tweaking won't fix. Yes, I know it was a five minute render - but that's just asking for suggestions.
  2. There's always a reason, and it's usually a good one. It's not up to me to understand or agree with it, however the case.

    Happy Birthday, Star! :)

    Happy belated birthday, Star. You're an amazing person and should relish the achievements you've made this past year. Sent from my Nexus 4 using Tapatalk 4 Beta
  6. This is something I made today and it was so good that I almost didn't want to put it back into the fridge (dangit!). Chia seeds are extremely healthy for you; but, don't eat too many your first time, your stomach will feel a bit funky after a few hours. Onto the recipe! Ingredients: 1 1/2 cup of Chia Seeds 1 cup of milk (this can be any kind of milk - I used hemp milk, unsweetened) 2 Tbps of Coconut Sugar (can be replaced with any kind of sugar or sweetener substitute) 2 Tbps of Cocoa Powder 2 tsp of Peanut Butter (or any kind of nutty butter - I used walnut butter with banana extract) 1 tsp of Coconut Oil Directions: Easy, really! All you do is pour the milk into the container, pour in your dry stuff (chia seeds, coconut sugar, cocoa powder) - stir until it all breaks down, dump in your peanut butter and coconut oil - stir for five to ten minutes. It seems like a long time, but it helps break everything up. Throw it into the fridge for a few hours (or even over night). The longer you leave it, the larger the chia seeds will become - they will absorb all of that yummyness. Keeps for at least 3-4 days.
  7. For The Cake: Non-Stick Cooking Spray 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 cup sugar (I use Coconut Sugar, which is 1:1 ratio with regular sugar) 2 eggs 1 tsp. vanilla (imitation will suffice, but investing in real vanilla extract is always a good thing!) 2 cups flour 1 tsp baking powder 1 tsp baking soda 1/4 tsp salt 3 Tbsp. Chia seeds 1 cup plain Greek Yoghurt 2 mangoes, diced (2 cups, roughly) 3 Tbps diced, candied ginger For The Glaze: 3/4 cup Confectioners' Sugar 2 Tbps orange juice 1 Tbps melted butter Directions: 1: Preheat your oven to 350°F (Gas Mark: 4, for you EU/UK/AU people). Lightly spray a bundt cake pan with the Non-stick cooking spray (set it to the side). 2: In a medium bowl, combine the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and chia seeds) and whisk them together. 3: In another medium bowl, blend the oil and sugar together. Then, beat in the eggs and vanilla extract. 4: Mix the dry ingredients into the egg mixture you've just created, little bits at a time; alternate with the Greek yoghurt. 5: Carefully fold in the mango and ginger, then pour the batter into the cake pan. 6: Bake at 350°F (Gas Mark: 4) for 25-35 minutes. Check with a toothpick, if you can poke a toothpick into the centre of the pan and it comes out clean - it's finished! 7: Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool (5-10 minutes should be enough) 8: Place your hand over the cake and flip it over to remove it from the pan, allow it to cool entirely on a wire rack (preferably) 9: In a small bowl, mix together the Confectioners' sugar, 1 Tbsp of the melted butter, and the orange juice. Blend until smooth. If you wish for a thicker glaze, add more of the Confectioners' sugar, a little at a time (to make sure it doesn't end up TOO thick..). 10: Once the cake is completely cooled, drizzle the glaze over it. This is actually a really good cake (of course, as I'm partial to mangoes!). Chia seeds are great for energy; just be careful not to eat too many of them at once.

    Not So Sinful Delight

    The best thing about this recipe is that it doesn't require any baking. (: These "quick serve" cookies are great for impromptu moments where you have to grab a few things for friends. In fact, I might make some slight additions to this recipe and make a few for a few friends and I when we go to a concert in middle of July.

    Happy Birthday, Sky !

    Happy belated birthday, Sky. Enjoy the geeky essentials, and the Windows 8 Samsung tablet. Hope there wasn't too much liquor, though it's sometimes quite difficult to know either way, sounding like a girl and all on IRC . Sent from my Nexus 10 using Tapatalk HD

    Jello & Whip Cream

    Pretty nice little recipe. I've done similar with mango jello with whipping cream and mango pieces, went well with the grandparents. Might have to try this at one point, sans pie filling (unless I find sugar free or reduced sugar). Sent from my Nexus 10 using Tapatalk HD

    Happy New Year!

    Happy New Year to everybody. May 2013 bring forth more inner and personal peace, understanding, knowledge, acceptance, and all the other good things in life. Just remember that we all are going to clash at times; yet, to let a minor conflict or difference in opinion to fester into something negative is a waste of time. Keep you heads up, hearts open.

    Hurricane Sandy 2012

    Sounds like a definite adventure in the "Big Apple". I know it isn't exactly the territory that you're accustomed to; but, at least you're having a new experience. Such things make life more entertaining. I'm sure it's altogether a new world to experience and learn about. Hang in there and glad to see you back on IRC and the forums.
