Baking sounds an awful lot like cooking to me :P


What is good poker? The ability to accurately quantify the likelihood of your opponents' actions and potential future actions, and to then use mathematics to find the line with the highest average rate of equity return.

What is good backgammon? The ability to accurately quantify the likelihood of your opponents' actions and potential future actions, and to then use mathematics to find the line with the highest average rate of equity return.

I suck at one and make it rain with the other.

Here is the first recipe of twelve to countdown the days to Christmas, these drinks are family friendly, non-alcoholic but I'm sure you can add alcohol if you wish.

Holiday Hot Cocoa

1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon cocoa
1/2 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
6 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
whipped cream or 6 regular marshmallows (optional)

Stir cocoa with sugar and salt in 3-quart saucepan. Stir in a small amount of milk to make a smooth paste. Add remainder of milk. Heat over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until tiny bubbles form around edge. Remove from heat. Add vanilla. Beat with hand beater until smooth and foamy. Pour into mugs and top each serving with some whipped cream or a marshmallow. Yield 6 cups.

Allah likes Italian food. Allah likes Italian ladies. Italian ladies, however, are nonexistent in the state of GA, so Allah is on his own. I've been learning to cook sort of, and my friend (the one who 69ed the dude in Costa Rico, if that imagery helps) gave me a Marcella Hazan cookbook this Christmas. I've made a few things from it, but it's sort of advanced and most of the stuff seems like too big a pain for me to tackle. Anyone who actually cooks know of something good but less work?

don't really care much what cuisine the food came from as long as it tastes good, not some exotic dish made from some animal that's not normally eaten from some jungle, and not too much vegetables - i know they are good for you but I love meat too much.

Thanks, Tomy. Not to sound picky, but that's almost too simple.

Tonight is the 3-pepper Pasta Carbonara. I'll let you know how it goes.

Oh yeah, I would think it would be. I'll have to keep that one on hand for simplicity's sake.

It's on now. I wish I could convey with words how gay the environment is around here: my foster brother and his cartoonish friends are playing XBox (I finally pulled the trigger), and only one of them is wearing a shirt, because they have the heat up so high, and I'm cooking, while simultaneously posting on Natalie Portman dot com. If this doesn't turn into a gang-bang, the pornography I've grown up with is misleading.

I always find as long as you have more cheese than all the other ingredients combined its delicious

Hope this has been as unhelpful as it seemed as I wrote it

Oh, no, it's not a mincing, '80s homoeroticism, it's more of a simmering, Nickleback-appropriate mood. Maybe some Hinder or some Blue October.

People actually like Blue October other than drunken hicks? The last time I got into a fist fight, I was 17, coked off my ass, and had the shit kicked out of me by some dickhead in a Blue October concert tee. I had already hated them on a near-Nickleback level, so this only sealed the deal.

Pasta was great.

I think you should have known this was wrong from the moment you thought "Tea...in cupcakes."

Tea in cupcakes?!

I've never had them, but I don't think matcha cupcakes are that unusual?

Over tea cup cakes? I think that would probably be a civil matter, really. Unless that falls under the category of Crimes Against Nature.
