ponderosa: closeup of professor snape (hp - rue the day)
J illustrated a little 99 cent iphone/ipad app called the Hippogriff Cookbook and it's starting to get some reviews out in the app world.

There's a fun one on 148apps.com here which says:

The Hippogriff Cookbook is interesting, because while you could cook the recipes using the substitute (Muggle) meats, I feel like that’s not the main point of this app... ...the app’s text is extraordinarily funny, especially for Harry Potter fans, and it’s almost worth reading just for the laughs. The recipes are a bonus, but I feel like just owning and reading the app is the main attraction.

It's pretty much a functional mini-cookbook with a comedic slant (and beautiful design). The recipes really do work so it reminds me a little of the oldschool Pern cookbook I had back in the day, but more fun and with some sly allusions to HP. :) The guys who wrote it are fabulous and clever, and one of the authors, Ben, really /is/ composing a Star Trek opera. I'd love to see them get more hits and downloads, so please pass on the link or rec if you're interested!

I made cake.

I had fresh raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries on hand.

There was really only one thing to do. )

ponderosa: (people - jdm is relative to my interests)
J is playing D&D on Weds and staying in the house is not good for my mental health, I am foisting myself on [personal profile] nekofreak and [personal profile] theskritabides and making it a weekly Pond experiments with food Fun With Cooking Night. Recipes of the successful endeavours will henceforth be posted here. :3

Tonight's menu = success!

These are definitely going into rotation. It took no more than 30 minutes total, and was super simple. Both can be easily prepared vegan.

Asparagus with balsamic glaze. )

Pasta with broccoli florets and kalamata olives, topped with feta. )

ponderosa: (people - jdm is relative to my interests)

- Although I managed surprisingly well on cards last year, there's no way I'm going to manage this year. I'm slightly bummed about this, but I think I'll just resolve to send more random letters throughout the year as that's way more fun to receive.

- I made adorable cupcakes at work again. I wish I had an excuse to make them at home, or a whole lot more people to foist them off on.

- The last two episodes of Fringe made me all excited and giddy, even with a brief Not Sure If Want moment in there. I need to get over my tendency to want to fit things neatly in canon and just write the smushy porn that I want to write.

- There is absolutely no way to reply to an anon thread with you as the subject without a) being a dick, b) encouraging the drama, and c) being a dick. I replied anyway.

- There is absolutely no way to blog/tweet/mention replying to an anon thread with you as the subject without encouraging the drama and being a bit of a dick, but it made me laugh. Oh, people.

- I had this big complicated adventure dream with JDM in it last night. It was awesome. Then I had to get up and go to work, which was less awesome, even though our new brunch cook made me Huevos for breakfast.

- Speaking of our new cook, she's been teaching J how to make stuff. Including this awesome grilled tomato salsa which is downstairs right now, calling to me. She's the best.

- I severely need a nap, but if I sleep now I'll wake up at the time which I should be going to bed. Conflict.
